It would appear that Donald Trump is once again skipping his daily intelligence briefings and also has no idea how to do a Google search.
Tuesday morning, Trump tweeted out this bit of nonsense:
122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 7, 2017
Minutes before that tweet went out, this appeared on Fox News:

One small problem with both the Trump tweet and his “source” at Fox News: It’s a big lie. Of those 122 those detainees released, 113 were let go by George W. Bush. Only 9 were released by President Obama because he was far too busy “tapp”ing Trump’s phones at Trump Tower. It kinda makes you wonder how this moron is able to breathe with being reminded to.
Within minutes, the delusional and illegitimate resident of the White House was corrected:

Now I understand that Trump wants to blame Obama for anything and everything, because to his and President Bannon’s way of thinking, a black guy has gotta be the reason something they disagree with happened. That’s the way moronic white supremacists and their semi-elected puppets view the world.
But all of this recent bullshit on Trump’s Twitter feed–the wiretapping charges with zero proof; the bragging about HUGE pro-Trump rallies where a half-dozen people showed up; the BIG investment in Gulf Coast oil exploration and other forms of fossil fuel production from Exxon Mobil which was planned long before Trump took office–should serve as warning signs for all of us.
I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but the idiot at the switch in the Oval Office has lost his mind and can no longer distinguish fact from fantasy. And this guy has the codes which control all of our nuclear weapons! Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if he thought Guantanamo Bay was located somewhere in Africa.
Do we really need any other proof that his man-child needs to be removed from office ASAP?
