Donald Trump is a liar. We know that. Politifact knows that, but when Trump’s lies come back to bite him in the you-know-what, we, as liberals and thinking people, take a special pleasure…schedenfreude, even.
Sunday night, the President took the stage for a rare speech from the Oval Office. In the speech, Obama called for tolerance and noted that Muslims are everywhere.
‘Muslim Americans are our friends and our neighbors are coworkers, our sports heroes. And yes, they are our men and women in uniform who are willing to die in defense of our country,’ the president said, speaking from the Oval Office. ‘We have to remember that.’

Trump, who has fallen deep into the “if Obama says ‘breathe’ hold your breath’ rabbit hole, took special issue at the mention of sports heroes.
Obama said in his speech that Muslims are our sports heroes. What sport is he talking about, and who? Is Obama profiling?

Twitter to the rescue. Trump was quickly subjected to a barrage of tweets naming Muslim sports heroes, including, Muhammad Ali, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Mike Tyson (who has endorsed Trump), Shaquille O’Neal and Hakeem Olajuwon.

Of course, Trump knows all of this. He’s met Muhammad Ali numerous times and he’s even presented him with an award.

This Twitter user reminded him via kitten, because it’s the internet and kitten is the official language.

For further proof that Trump is filled with whatever his hair is made of, the Huffington Post showed several pictures of Trump with Muslim sports heroes. The Daily Mail listed even more Muslim sports heroes.
Of course, the truth is of zero consequence to Trump and somehow his lies are called “plain talk” by his followers who eat them right up.
