President Donald Trump's recent town hall on ABC was widely panned after Trump's rambling, off-topic answers left many viewers feel he was unwilling or unable to address their concerns. The event also gave fact-checkers a plethora of tidbits to research, review and ultimately discredit once compared to the facts.
In other words, the POTUS lied. A lot.
Trump seemed blissfully unaware of the public's response, however. He went on Twitter and thanked the world for great reviews.
But multiple moments from the town hall were so embarrassing for Trump that they went viral.
