Donald Trump lied again when he said former President Barack Obama didn’t call the families of fallen soldiers. Even when NBC News’ Peter Alexander pushed back by telling him that was not true, he said that’s what he was told. F*cking liar.

Trump is trying to start another conspiracy theory. First Obama was born in Kenya, then he wiretapped his phones in Trump tower and now he didn’t call the families of fallen soldiers. If his lips are moving, Donald Trump is lying. Period.
Unlike Trump, President Obama didn’t skip honoring fallen service members by playing golf. He showed up to pay his respects. For example, Obama and Hillary Clinton were literally on the tarmac when the bodies of the Americans killed in Benghazi were brought back to the U.S.
Former Obama aides ripped Trump for his barefaced lie:
This is an outrageous and disrespectful lie even by Trump standards. Also: Obama never attacked a Gold Star family. https://t.co/JgzTUIzWIa

Trump was called out for not contacting the families or even mentioning the deaths of the four Green Berets who were ambushed in Niger. Nope, he was more focused on playing golf, dining at one of his hotels, attacking black NFL players taking a knee and insulting Sen. Bob Corker and trying to shame Puerto Ricans.
Twitter clapped back hard at Trump’s lies:
And in case you didn't notice, trump tried creating another conspiracy theory that President Obama never called families of fallen soldiers.

Pressed by @PeterAlexander about Trump's claim that Obama didn't call families of fallen soldiers:
Trump: "I don't know if he did…"

Trump is a lying POS. That's a given. But lying about President Obama not calling the families of fallen U.S. soldiers? Fucking deplorable.

Trump hasn't called families of Green Berets killed in Niger so he falsely accused Obama of never calling families of fallen soldiers either
