‘Take a shot every time he lies’: Twitter users seem really hammered after Trump’s address
Fox News

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump interrupted primetime TV to give an address to the nation. During his speech, Trump addressed his “manufactured crisis” at the US-Mexico border.

During his speech, Trump said that his steel wall was “absolutely critical” to national security. He noted that it would stop illegal drugs and eventually “pay for itself.” He also blamed Democrats for the government shutdown that is going into its third week.

Users on Twitter called out Trump’s lies point by point. Most of them did not take his speech seriously and turned it into a drinking game.

“Take a shot everytime Trump lies,” one user wrote.
