This isn't exactly news, but his continued disregard for the truth is shocking even after nearly four years in office.

Trump never hesitates to say what he feels, even if it's blatantly untrue.

The same idiots who have spent months claiming Joe Biden has dementia are suddenly silent after Trump said he had s… https://t.co/Lac3twX85L— Santiago Mayer (@Santiago Mayer) 1587411329.0

@Bill_Maxwell_ Nothing like claiming the mathematically impossible! Are we talking about a "perfectly imperfect job?"— Chuck Denk #GoodTroubleTowardsAMorePerfectUnion (@Chuck Denk #GoodTroubleTowardsAMorePerfectUnion) 1587248926.0
Even if Trump's recent actions have saved lives, his months of inaction surely cost us far more than we ever needed to lose.

Don't expect Trump to start treating the truth with respect any time soon.
