Trump was on Fox & Friends this morning, again, and for once he said something that wasn’t the biggest, dumbest lie you’ve ever heard in your life. So here it is:
DOOCY: “Actress by the name of Lena Dunham, she said this yesterday. ‘I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will. I know a lovely place in Vancouver, and I can get my work done from there.’ She says she’s going to move to Canada, Donald Trump, if you get elected. What’s your message to her?
TRUMP: Well she’s a B-actor, and, you know, has no mojo. I heard Whoopi Goldberg said that too, that’ll be a great, great thing for our country.”
True, true. Although I like Whoopi (what? Shut up!) we can definitely do without Dunham. Then Steve Doocy adds that Rosie O’Donnell and some others have made the same Canadian promise, to which Trump replies:
“We’ll get rid of Rosie? Oh I love it. Well now I have to get elected. Now I have to get elected because I’ll be doing a great service to our country. I have to. Now it’s much more important. In fact I’ll immediately get off this call and start campaigning.”
So Rosie O’Donnell and Lena Dunham in one swoop? Trump is absolutely and totally right. That would be a service to the country. Hey, broken clocks, you guys.
But even though it’s the truest and most accurate thing Trump has ever said, that’s a low bar so it’s still only partly true. It’s definitely not worth him being elected. Can’t all three of them go to Canada together? Or somewhere further?
