Trump’s campaign fought claims he called Meghan Markle ‘nasty’ with an audio clip that proves he did.

They clearly have the best brains.

“The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.” — George Orwell, “1984.”


Politicians are known to stretch the truth a bit and the public always gives them a little bit of leeway. But Donald Trump doesn’t just tell harmless white lies, he dishes out comically gargantuan whoppers that are easy to disprove.

For example:

He has claimed we are building a wall on the U.S. – Mexico border, when not a drop of concrete has been spilled.

His press secretary said he had a bigger inaugural crowd than Barack Obama which was easily disproved by a side-by-side photograph.

Trump even claimed there were terrorist attacks happening in America that the press was covering up.

In fact, according to Vanity Fair, Trump has told over 10,000 lies since taking office. No small feat.

One of the most head-scratching things about his presidency is that his supporters either don’t care if he lies or they’re gullible enough to believe them.

On Sunday, June 2, Trump tweeted that he didn’t call Megan Markle nasty.

However, on Friday, May 31, he gave an interview with The Sun in which he claimed he didn’t know that Markle called him “misogynistic” and “divisive” during his 2016 presidential campaign.

“I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty,” he replied.

The Trump campaign’s official Twitter feed, Official Trump War Room, backed up the president’s claim with a tweet with audio that was supposed to prove Trump didn’t call Markle nasty, but he says it clear as day.

Maggie Haberman of the New York Times brought the stupefying mistake to light.

So does the Trump campaign think that the public is stupid and will go along with anything or are they too lazy to actually watch the videos they tweet? Regardless, the tweet is still up.

But interacting with the world isn't the only thing AI is making easier – now we can use it save the world, too.

An anonymous White House official claims President Trump cruelly limited Hispanic immigrants in their new book, "A Warning."

The book, to be released on November 19, gives an alleged insider account of the Trump White House and paints a picture of the president as a chaotic man who lacks the mental and moral acumen required for the job.

The anonymous staffer says that Trump once feigned a Hispanic accent and made fun of women attempting to immigrate to the U.S.

One of the stadium's few positive aspects is its connection to public transportation.

Yad Vashem

Since 1992, the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous has been holding reunion ceremonies between Holocaust survivors and rescuers once a year. But the tradition is coming to an end, as many have died or are too frail to travel. What might be the last reunion of its kind took place when a 92-year-old woman met up with the two surviving family members that she helped hide during the Holocaust, and their descendants.

Sarah Yanai and Yossi Mor introduced Melpomeni Dina (nee Gianopoulou) to their almost 40 family members, all decedents of the Mordechai family, the family of seven that Dina and her two sisters hid during WWII. "There are no words to describe this feeling," Dina told the Jeruselum Post. "It is very emotional for us to be together again."
