You can't make this up, but then again, under this president you never ever have to.

Donald Trump stood in front of career CIA operatives and said these words in a row:

"I love honesty. I like honest reporting."

And I have to hand it to the CIA audience. They are really good at not blowing their cover. No one burst out laughing at Trump's ultimate lie on a lie.

The only other plausible explanation is that "Honesty" is one of the Russian pee hookers that Putin hired for Trump in 2013. I hear Trump said that Honesty was "a Mar-a-Lago 7 but a definite Moscow 9."

Can you help us out?
