    Trump on Sunday tweeted out this:

    https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/848529014667055105

    If true, it would mean that Trump's earlier tweet about Obama tapping the phones in Trump Tower was a bald-faced lie. Of course, the more likely situation is that both tweets are bald-faced lies, but hey, at least we can now say for certain that both tweets cannot be true at the same time.

    Nah. Trump doesn't lie, that's impossible.

    I'm not even joking when I ask you to delete this thread. No discrepancy must arise with The Glorious Leader.

    o_O That's admitting a mistake?

    Surveillance is synonymous with wiretapping.

    Ah, sorry, I was taking this in context of other information, where the surveillance is described as "electronic monitoring", not wiretaps.

    A later tweet by Trump:

    In any case, he's now saying he has the "real story", which implies that he did not previously have the real story...

    He has to add some weight and have his eyes fixed to be classified as "glorious leader"

    Im not really invested in this topic and have not read every tweet and news story about your almighty doofus but i go out on a limb here and say that Trump maybe did not lie in this case, with the first Obama accusation from Trump he may just had a suspicion and now he have the hard evidence, thus neither tweet is a lie, seems kinda just like one of the famous Trump classic where......yeah....that fellow is not that good with words and expressing himself correctly, there is a discrepancy between what Trumps means and what he says ;)

    USA should look into getting an official White House Trump translator, that can decipher what he actually means and then express his thoughts in a more, hmm, presidential way.

    Either way, good luck with that...

    I don't think the issue is that he's not good at expressing himself, I think the issue is that he expresses himself way too much.

    If your hypothesis is true, then he just accused a former president of a felony based on nothing more than a hunch. He really needs to put a muzzle on it before he gets himself into actual trouble.

    Trump tweeted about being wiretapped, classified info, so Trump IS a leaker.

    (because he is POTUS, what he says has authority, while the Fox news story was operation reports and unofficial leaks, Trump makes it official)

    So in your world there is no levels between a hunch and 100% bulletproof evidence? His first statement about Obama wiretapping; its impossible that it is based on much more than just a hunch?

    He has provided no evidence. Usually when you accuse someone else of a felony, you provide evidence of such.

    Also, I'd like to remind you that this is the same person who made up fanciful stories about 9/11 celebrations on rooftops, about the sun coming out when he spoke at his inauguration, rolled out a bunch of steaks from a local butcher and claimed they were Trump steaks which in reality had folded long ago, proclaimed he would personally hire instructors for his fraudulent university that he never did, and proclaimed that he sent investigators to Hawaii to look into Obama's birth certificate and that they couldn't believe what they were finding.

    In other words, we have a habitual and pathological liar in office. You really think he is telling the truth now? Please. Neither the facts nor his history of lying support that.

    Well, but this is Trump. Going on past experience, this man doesn't really have hunches at all. He simply hears things on his favorite cable TV news punditry shows, then twists them into barbed 140-character comments to hurl at his latest enemy.

    If you're trying to make the case that Trump is using his tweets to make America a better place, you're giving too much credit to Trump. The man is simply trying to hurt other people with his words. Uncovering the truth is a secondary matter (if he even worries about that at all).

    Does trump ever have credibility?

    Oh, and it also reminds me this from YouTube:

    Journalist: does anyone trust what trump is saying?
    Audiences: (loooong pause) trust for what?
    Narrator: when there are such long pauses, that means the answer won't be great.

    Can't find the original but it is from "A Closer Look" series.

    Trump doesn't admit mistakes.
    Mistakes admit Trump.
