Monday morning The Washington Post marked a milestone for the Trump administration, or more specifically President Donald Trump. And George Conway, husband of Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway made certain to congratulate him on Twitter.
It began with a tweet by The Washington Post stating:
“The Post’s Fact Checker database has been updated with President Trump’s weekend remarks. He has surpassed 10,000 false claims during his presidency.”

The Post is one of several organizations that tracks lies and false claims made by the President.
In response to their tweet, George Conway—husband of the woman who coined the phrase “alternative facts” to describe her boss’ obfuscations—posted:
“Congrats, #DerangedDonald!! An amazing accomplishment!! No one but you could have achieved this. Not just the number. Covering all topics, never shying from even the most brazen, disprovable lies, you’ve even managed to tell multiple lies on same subject, lying even about lying!!”

People appreciated the heads up from Conway.
You’d think the American people would get a free sub 🥪 after 10,000 lies.

Now he can truthfully claim to have done something better than all other presidents.

He even lies about things that are verifiable-like where his father was born. I don’t think he is capable of completing 3 sentences without telling a lie.

Shouldn’t there be some sort of reward for this high honor? Like golden handcuffs and a padded cell?

Although many raised issues with Conway himself.
People pointed out George’s wife Kellyanne “alternative facts” Conway also contributed to lies from the Trump administration.
I like George’s posts, but also believe there must be something seriously wrong with a man who can be married to someone who has made a career out of lying to protect 45, to the detriment of democracy.
Normal people don’t stay married to sociopaths. Even if they are Catholic.

I don’t know. That Kellyanne Conway person who consults for him comes awfully close….

Shorter @gtconway3d: “For every 1 time trump lies, my wife. @KellyannePolls, goes on tv and twitter and repeats them ten times, but I never call that out. It turns us on pyschosexually to manipulate the media. She bounces like the kid’s nickel rocket ride outside a Piggly Wiggly.

Kellyanne don’t see this? I really don’t get it. It’s our country were talking about.

I admire you for not turning a blind eye to Trump’s pathological lying, but like so many others, can’t help but wonder how you manage to deal with a wife who takes her lead from Trump and also constantly lies to enable and protect him?

George Conway was not alone in drawing attention to the latest accomplishment of President Trump. Although not all were as congratulatory.
BREAKING: Trump told the 10,000th lie of his failed presidency this weekend. Another 10,000 reasons why he shouldn’t be president anymore.
— Scott Dworkin (@funder) April 29, 2019
601 days to get to 5,000 “false and misleading claims” (8 per day).
Then only 226 days later he’s at 10,000 (23 per day).
Why’s he speeding up?https://t.co/UwGWupTaek

Donald Trump has now told more than 10,000 lies in office. Congratulations America! https://t.co/99QK1jO0eu

Following a weekend of presidential speeches, tweets & loose remarks, the Washington Post’s fact-checkers have worked out that Donald Trump has now passed the 10,000 mark for lies and false claims made during the 29 months since he won the presidency. That’s some going.

If you told one lie a day from the moment you were born, you’d hit 10,000 lies when you were 27 years old. https://t.co/8Wjl0lK8ON

Many noted the recent rapid acceleration of lying, from 8 per day to 23. While theories abound, only President Donald Trump knows for certain why he has such a difficult relationship with the truth.
