“I am the best ever. Don't believe it. Just ask me.
Believe me, I am the best ever”
Don’t believe him? Then as I note and he often says: “Just ask him.”
Case in point:
WASHINGTON (The AP via MSN) — It has been a week of bogus boasting by Trump and members of his administration as they took unearned credit for airline safety, pollution cleanup and major advances in care for veterans.
Three specifics with details (my emphasis added):
1. Trump ignored fatality-free years in aviation during the Obama administration when he declared 2017 the safest year on record and suggested that was because he's kept a sharp eye on airlines.
2. Trump represented routine and ceremonial proclamations recognizing a day in remembrance of Pearl Harbor and a month in honor of military families as substantive achievements that improved care for veterans.
3. Trump’s *EPA took credit for completing work on seven Superfund sites even though the actual cleaning was done by President Barack Obama's EPA. Plus this tidbit from the fact locker re: Superfund cleanup money: Trump's proposed 2018 budget seeks to cut the Superfund program by 30 percent. More than 1,300 Superfund sites on EPA's list are at various stages in the cleanup process.
*EPA Note: Part of their press release: EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt claims that it completed — or “delisted” — more Superfund sites last year than Obama's EPA did the year before saying in part: “We have made it a priority to get these sites cleaned up faster and in the right way.”
