In an unprecedented move for the Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump has admitted that he lied.

After repeatedly stating that he had watched ‘secret’ footage of a U.S. plane unloading money in Iran the same day four American detainees were released, Trump took to Twitter to acknowledge that he never watched such a video, because, of course, it does not exist.

“The plane I saw on television was the hostage plane in Geneva, Switzerland, not the plane carrying $400 million in cash going to Iran!” Trump clarified on Friday.

Trump made this false claim twice this week. On Thursday, in Maine, he said the nonexistent video was provided by Iran “to embarrass our president because we have a president who’s incompetent.” But now, Trump admits he confused footage of the released American hostages arriving in Geneva, Switzerland, with a plane carrying ‘bribe’ money to Iran.

In true Trump etiquette, he offered no apologies.

Joe Biden

If Joe Biden is elected, he will face the same intransigence from the GOP that Barack Obama did. Just as soon as Biden is sworn in, Republicans will do everything in their power to defeat his policies and hamstring his presidency.

They will suddenly remember long-forgotten conservative principles, such as fiscal restraint. They will refuse to compromise. Even though they ignored mind-boggling corruption for the last four years, they will show a passionate and determined interest in any whiff of scandal among Democrats.
