Each and every day, Donald Trump looks at the latest tracking polls and sees that he’s falling further and further behind his likely Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, who is up by as much as 9 points nationally over Trump and also leads in key battleground states such as Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. A couple of weeks ago, Trump was even threatening to sue his campaign manager, Brad Parscale.
But a move the Trump 2020 campaign made Monday proves that the president and his campaign advisers are desperate, flummoxed, and downright paranoid when it comes to what they can do to stop the hemorrhaging as November 3 draws ever closer.
According to a press release sent out by the Trump campaign, they have launched an “investigative website” that is intended to uncover “the truth behind Joe Biden’s never-ending, seemingly incomprehensible statements during his third, plodding campaign for president.”
Oh, and here’s the kicker: They’re calling this website the “Truth Over Facts” website. Yeah, as if a pathological liar like Donald Trump would know the truth, even if it walked up and began pissing on his leg.

Even if the stunt is an attempt at trolling Biden, it’s about as creative and effective as something a 6th grader would think up and post on Facebook in order to get back at a teacher he or she doesn’t care for.
The more likely purpose of the website, however, is to provide a digital repository for every vile lie, crumb of propaganda, and outright slanderous assertion the Trump team and its MAGA-inspired zombies can think up and circulate on social media. It’s quite literally a site where bullshit will be packaged as “news” and “information.” It’s right out of Orwell’s 1984, and it proves just how worried the Trump team is right now.
What Donald Trump cannot seem to get through his thick skull and shellac-coated “hair” is that people don’t like or trust him. They see 90,000 Americans dead and 36 million unemployed and they realize the current president is a pathetic failure.
Trump has told over 20,000 lies since taking office. Over the next six months in the lead-up to the election, don’t be surprised if he tells at least 20,000 more.
