I haven't said much on President Trump of late, but today brings two whoppers which I feel the need to address.

Whopper #1 - On the recent trip to Saudi Arabia, Trump announced a $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia. Well, nope. Basically, he and/or his staff took (from the article) "a wishlist: an itemized list of things the Saudis might be interested in if the price of oil ever recovers, if they start more wars and things the US would like to sell the Saudis."

Whopper #2 - On the Sunday talk shows, Trump's administration was touting "we added 50,000 jobs in the coal sector." Well, nope. Again from the article: "there were only 51,000 coal-mining jobs in the entire U.S. in May. Last month, 400 coal jobs were added—not 7,000. It was the overall mining sector, which includes oil, gas, and metals mining in addition to coal, that added 7,000 jobs in the month and 50,000 since last 2016."

These are both bald-faced lies, delivered unto the US with a straight face.
