You knew it would happen. You knew Trump would start throwing a temper tantrum over his decision to back away from hosting the G-7 summit at his Doral resort property in Miami, Florida.

In this CNN video, the liar-in-chief suggests that former President Barack Obama’s book and Netflix deals were made while he was in office, so he could somehow justify violating what he called the “phony” emoluments clause in our U.S. Constitution.

CNN almost instantly fact checks these claims lies. Check out the clip below...It’s a beautiful thing to see.

We need more of this from our media. Right there in big bold letters, CNN is educating and informing its viewers that Donald J. Trump is a serial liar and is willing to lie to continue his impeachable behavior.
