The "top" cop Donald Trump claimed earlier this week to have met in Chicago was simply a "qualified" officer, the GOP nominee's spokeswoman admitted Wednesday.Right. The Donald had a little chat with Officer Muldoon and thought he was talking with the Commissioner?
Trump was caught in an apparent fabrication during an interview with Bill O'Reilly Monday, when he told the Fox News Channel commentator that he had met with a "top" Chicago Police Department officer with whom he discussed how "tough police tactics" could help quell the city's violence.
Does he not understand that he's under the microscope? Does he not realize everything he says is going to be fact-checked? Does he not get that, absent proof otherwise, it's being taken for granted that every word that comes out of his mouth is a lie, including the conjunctions and articles?
This is just really stupid shit for Trump to bullshit about.
