He’s a deranged animal

Trump tells more vicious disgusting lies about Obama.

President Trump falsely asserted on Monday that his predecessor, Barack Obama, and other presidents did not contact the families of American troops killed in duty, drawing a swift, angry rebuke from several of Mr. Obama’s former aides.

That’s a foul thing to say, especially for that puffed-up bladder of a man who insulted the parents of a Muslim soldier killed in action in Iraq during the campaign.

I’m so sick of malicious lies. People have been telling malicious lies about me today so I’m in a filthy mood, but I’m sick of them anyway. Malicious lies ruin everything.

Trump was asked why he hadn’t said anything in public about four soldiers killed in an ambush in Niger last week.

Mr. Trump said he had written personal letters to their families and planned to call them in the coming week.

“If you look at President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn’t make calls,” Mr. Trump said during a news conference in the Rose Garden with the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell. “A lot of them didn’t make calls. I like to call when it’s appropriate.”

Mr. Trump’s assertion belied a long record of meetings Mr. Obama held with the families of killed service people, as well as calls and letters. Mr. Obama regularly traveled to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to greet the caskets of troops, a ritual that began early in his presidency before he decided to deploy 30,000 troops to Afghanistan.

“This is an outrageous and disrespectful lie even by Trump standards,” Benjamin J. Rhodes, a former deputy national security adviser to Mr. Obama, posted on Twitter. “Also,” Mr. Rhodes added, “Obama never attacked a Gold Star family.”


Another former aide put it even more forcefully.

When Mr. Trump was pressed a few minutes later about his claim about Mr. Obama, he waffled.

“I don’t know if he did,” the president said. “I was told he didn’t often, and a lot of presidents don’t. They write letters.”

“President Obama, I think, probably did sometimes and maybe sometimes he didn’t,” Mr. Trump continued. “That’s what I was told. All I can do is ask my generals.”

The lying rat.
