As he tries to lie his way out of the classified document hoarding scandal, Tangerine Baal dragged President Obama into it, posting the following lie on his tumbleweed-choked Twitter knock-off platform:
President Barack Hussein Obama kept 33 million pages of documents, much of them classified. How many of them pertained to nuclear? Word is, lots!
This tells us that the rumors about Trump keeping nuclear documents in Melania’s shoe closet must be true, or he wouldn’t have bothered with the “pertained to nuclear” line. But the entire statement is a big fat lie, according to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), i.e., the librarians and archivists who oversee presidential papers.
According to the New York Times, that organization “confirmed on Friday afternoon that Mr. Obama had not kept his documents — classified and unclassified — as required under the Presidential Records Act of 1978.”
Moreover, the organization detailed which of its facilities stores the “approximately 30 million pages” of records and said, “As required by the [Presidential Records Act], former President Obama has no control over where and how NARA stores the presidential records of his administration.”
Most of us learned not to fuck with librarians during grade school. Trump is learning that TODAY at age 76.
