Trump Wasn’t Invited to Throw Out First Pitch

The paper of record:

An hour before Dr. Anthony S. Fauci threw the first pitch at the season opener between the New York Yankees and the Washington Nationals, President Trump stood on the briefing room stage at the White House and declared that he, too, had been invited to throw out his own opening pitch.

“Randy Levine is a great friend of mine from the Yankees,” Mr. Trump, referring to the president of the baseball team, told reporters on Thursday as Dr. Fauci was preparing to take the mound. “And he asked me to throw out the first pitch, and I think I’m doing that on Aug. 15 at Yankee Stadium.”

There was one problem: Mr. Trump had not actually been invited on that day by the Yankees, according to one person with knowledge of Mr. Trump’s schedule. His announcement surprised both Yankees officials and the White House staff.

No surprise here. I’ve known people who lie as chronically as the President does. What happens is, they get to a point where they just can’t tell the difference between the lie that they’ve made up, and the reality that it never happened (or didn’t happen that way).

Just more bullshit from the Liar-in-Chief.
