Donald Trump just can’t stop lying. I don’t mean lying in a way that is hard to discern, but lying in an obvious, blatant way that just doesn’t even make sense. This time (or it is “again”) he claimed that the investigation into Russian meddling and collusion on the part of the Trump administration members was just an excuse for the Democrats losing the 2016 election.
This is just ridiculous on its face, for several reasons, the most obvious of which is the fact that everyone expected Hillary Clinton to win the election – and the investigation into Russian meddling was already in progress since July 2016 – before anyone knew Trump had enough votes to win.

Trump supporters will, of course, ignore this fact and agree with the (dishonest) president.
