It appears that the Trump White House is just winging the fuck out of this deceive-the-American-people thing. It’s really something!
Since March, President Trump has denied knowing anything about a $130,000 payment that his lawyer, Michael Cohen, made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels just before the 2016 election. But on Wednesday night, Rudy Giuliani—former New York mayor, current Trump legal advisor, human mole rat from the depths of hell—nonchalantly told Fox News’s Sean Hannity that Trump reimbursed Cohen for the $130,000 payment, the same payment Trump claimed didn’t exist. Casual!
Please enjoy this brief look back at the many ways the White House claimed that the president had no idea about the payment that he is now revealed to have reimbursed. Memories!
