Don’t call it a gaffe

Another blatant lie Trump told, on camera:

He told an audience of military spouses at the White House on Wednesday that he was “proud” of the 2.4 percent raise for 2018 which was the “first time in 10 years” troops had received a salary boost.

That’s the lie – there has been a raise every year in those ten years. Is there anything special about the ten years part? Of course: it covers the Obama presidency.


Flattering pic.

It was the second gaffe in recent weeks that Trump has made about the military.

It’s not a “gaffe.” It’s a lie.
