During Donald Trump’s press conference today he made some crazy claims, like when he said drugs were cheaper than candy. Then Trump made an obvious bold-faced lie when he claimed his administration was running like a ‘fine-tuned machine.’
Oddly, even as he said this he acknowledged that he was having trouble filling the vacancies in the executive branch. In fact, the stated goal of this press conference was to introduce his new nominee for Secretary of Labor, Alexander Acosta, an employment law expert and socially conservative son of Cuban immigrant who had a long tenure at George Mason University teaching labor law with a focus on disabilities.
None of which Trump mentioned in the press conference. As a result, the internet was less interested in policy and more curious about what, precisely, Trump views as a ‘fine-tuned machine.’ In other words it was mostly an excuse to dig out all those fail GIFs from 2013 and put them back to use.
Well, Twitter had some fun with Trump’s assertion:
