Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!

“There is so much wrong there, from the fact it undermines the excuse he supposedly dictated that this meeting was about Russian adoptions to claiming he didn’t know about it, and if he did, nothing happened, and if it wasn’t, he didn’t know about it.”
But that wasn’t what stood out most.
“Perhaps the most galling lie in there is describing Donald Jr. as a ‘wonderful son,’” Oliver said. “I mean, that is just flagrantly false. He’s barely even the most wonderful Donald Trump.”
