I have no idea how the other members held it together after hearing this.

I would have had to leave the room to compose myself.

Twitter users mockingly accused White House counsel Pat Cipollone of telling the “biggest lie ever” on the Senate floor after he vouched for Donald Trump during the president’s impeachment trial.

Cipollone, who is leading Trump’s defense, claimed Trump “is a man of his word” during the proceedings on Tuesday night.

Yes, he did.

Remember that it was just the other day that I posted an article (Link) pointing out that Trump has lied 16,000 times during his first three years in office. 

To argue that he is a “man of his word” is to make a claim that is refuted by every single piece of evidence available to the American people. 

By the way this was by no means the only lie told by Cippollone on the Senate floor. 

I guess we should not be surprised that the man who simply can never tell the truth is represented by a man who has an equal disrespect for honesty. 

If only there were some Senate rules that could be used to punish somebody who lied as blatantly as the White House counsel.
