    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a stirring defense of Donald Trump’s chief of staff, General John Kelly, the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said on Friday that it was “unpatriotic in the extreme” to offer irrefutable video proof that a four-star general lied.

    “It is unpatriotic enough to accuse a four-star general of lying,” Sanders told the White House press corps. “But to make available a video that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that that general lied is unpatriotic bordering on treasonous.”

    Warming to her subject, Sanders said that any American who sees undeniable video evidence that a general lied and chooses to believe the video “shows disrespect for our country and hatred for our flag.”

    “General Kelly has served our country with courage and valor,” she said. “He has earned the right to lie without fear of being contradicted by the facts.”

    Minutes after Sanders concluded her remarks, Kelly also received a vote of confidence from Trump, who called his chief of staff “a good liar, for a beginner.”​

    Actually Congressman Fredrica Wilson made a total ass of herself when trying to lie about Trump's condolence call.

    She told the truth, of course.

    With every passing day Kelly disgraces himself more and more. I wonder if he’s so dumb that he’ll be surprised when he’s finally thrown under the bus.

    When you have no way to defend lying, you trot out the old patriotism.

    If the general lied, he should be called on it.
