There is a big problem with President Trump, and that is he apparently thinks that his job is a joke. He acts like it, and people respond in disbelief because he lies and exaggerates. His fellow Republicans like to call it hyperbole.
The act of lying as a Federal Official is a violation of the law. Donald Trump uses lying and deceit as tactics to distract from his mounting wrong-doing.
Emolument Clause violations, Misprision of Fraud, possible misdeeds in business and during the campaign that might be tantamount to treasonous acts are all under a cloud of investigations.
"Trump: I didn’t record Comey conversations
President Trump on Thursday said he did not record his conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey, addressing a controversy he first stoked with a suggestive tweet.
“With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea … whether there are ‘tapes’ or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings,” Trump wrote in a series of tweets."
Acting like a fool.
