President Trump may have just made the most demonstrably false statement of his life.
On Tuesday, Trump met with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's Secretary General to seemingly discuss nothing related to NATO at all. After all, beyond the fact that Germany is in the military alliance, there was no apparent reason for Trump to falsely claim his father was "born in a very wonderful place in Germany" when he was definitely born in New York City.
Beyond this random gaffe, Trump answered — or tried to answer — questions about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. While trying to say someone should look at the "origins" of the probe, Trump definitely said "oranges" three times before swapping it for "beginnings" instead. Kathryn Krawczyk
