Devin Nunes, aka "Trump's Stooge", continued peddling lies and conspiracy theories related to his "memo" on Fox and Friends on Monday morning. This time his lies are so easily disproven, it is almost comical. You know, if the joke was about a group of morons running a company versus the actual country. But I digress...

Here is how it went down:

Devin Nunes' pathetic dud of a memo was released on Friday after nearly 2 weeks of non stop "#ReleaseTheMemo" craziness on twitter and Fox News (aka Trump News Central).

The memo was hyped as the nuclear bomb that would sink the Mueller investigation, lead to the arrest of scores of FBI and DOJ officials and probably lead to Rob Rosenstein being fired.

Guess what? None of that happened. In fact, the thing was such a dud that even Republicans backed away from it over the weekend, panning it for cherry picking details.

Back to Nunes' interview. So one of the key points of the Nunes memo was that the investigation into Trump DID start because George Papadopoulos got wasted and admitted to an Australian diplomat that he was told that Russia had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton.

Well, Nunes tried his best to discredit Papadopoulos' role in the campaign, even though he had played a major part in the campaign. Instead of being labeled a "coffee boy," Nunes actually denied that he even MET with Trump.

Nunes said: “As far as we can tell, Papadopoulos never even had met with the president."

One problem with that statement: There is a photo actually showing Trump sitting at a table in March 2016 WITH George Papadopoulos. In fact, Papadopoulos was sitting literally 4 seats away from Trump. And this isn't a huge table.

Nunes' audience of one was impressed, at least:
