Donald Trump Calls B.S. on His Own Lie

On Friday morning, after a week of constant drubbing by the press, Donald Trump did the unthinkable and admitted that he had made a mistake.

On Wednesday, Trump generated what would have been a major scandal for a lesser candidate when he claimed to have seen “top secret” footage of the $400 million cash payment the Obama administration was recently reported to have airlifted to the Iranian government on the same day the Islamic Republic released four American prisoners. Trump immediately cast the money transfer, which was publicly disclosed back in January, as a hostage payment to a terrorism-sponsoring government. “We paid $400 million for the hostages,” Trump said, according to CNN. “Such a bad precedent was set by Obama.”

HIS tweet.....The plane I saw on television was the hostage plane in Geneva, Switzerland, not the plane carrying $400 million in cash going to Iran!

What 'lie'?

In reply to: Someone took TheRUMP to the woodshed.

Isn't is refreshing to have a political leader actually admit to a mistake....even a minor one like this one.....rather than a president or the other candidate double down on their REAL lies to the people and never admit to anything they say that is obviously lies?

How do you figure this is even a story, JP, when the REAL story is about the ransom paid where the hostages, ready on the tarmac for hours waiting to take off, being told by Iranian forces that IF that other plane doesn't show up that they are never going home? Sorry....I forgot....liberals have to deflect in order to stop the conversation about the REAL issues.

I mean, it's not like Trump described in detail about how his helicopter was being fired on (oh, wait, that was hilLIARy's LIE)

TheRUMP admitting that he even said something is a "story"...especially when it's to say he "mispoke".

Just imagine the headlines IF he admitted he was wrong about Obamas birthplace.

RE: What 'lie'?

That HE saw "top secret" footage

He not only made up the story...he also had video at 11

That LIE

Donald Trump finally endorses Paul Ryan

“Welcome to Wisconsin, Mr. Trump, but let’s get something straight,” Wisconsin’s Assembly Speaker Robin Vos wrote in an open letter to his GOP colleagues ahead of Trump’s arrival. “We are Ryan Republicans here in Wisconsin, not Trump Republicans.”

The tale of two states underscores Trump’s mounting challenges during one of the most tumultuous weeks of his unorthodox campaign. He has skipped from one misstep to the next, sparking a fresh wave of Republican defections among longtime party loyalists who refuse to support their presidential nominee — including some who even publicly support for Democrat Clinton.
