Donald Trump is so worried he’s on the verge of losing the 2020 election that he’s now making up fake awards and claiming he won them.
On Sunday, it was announced that former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg will spend $100 million to help assure that Biden wins the all-important state of Florida, which would all but seal Trump’s doom, as no Republican since Calvin Coolidge in 1924 has won the White House without winning the Sunshine State.
As he so often does, Trump aired his grievance about the situation on Twitter, where he made his bogus claim about a nonexistent award he claimed he received:
Sleepy Joe Biden has spent 47 years in politics being terrible to Hispanics. Now he is relying on Castro lover Bernie Sanders to help him out. That won’t work! Remember, Miami Cubans gave me the highly honored Bay of Pigs Award for all I have done for our great Cuban Population!

CNN fact checker Daniel Dale quickly called the president out for his lie:
For those confused by Trump’s claim he got the “highly honored Bay of Pigs Award”:
He got an endorsement in 2016 from the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association. It’s not an award. He has a long history of turning endorsements and other non-awards into awards.

As we’ve seen time and time again over the past four years, Trump lies about EVERYTHING, and his latest fib got him completely humiliated on social media:
Y’all give yourself a fucking award for anything you feel you deserve (or not) today cus our fucking gut worm of a president just awarded his own ass a nonexistent Bay of Pigs award. Ima give myself the Queen of Twitter award for the whole fucking day.

Just so you know, pigs were asked for a comment on Trump’s latest embarrassment, and they issued a press release saying they’re not to blame because even the dumbest pig is brighter than the brain dead moron currently residing in the White House.
