Over the weekend, The New York Times published a scathing report on Donald Trump’s many gross and inappropriate interactions with women. Just to give you an idea about those experiences: One women remembered a time Trump asked her if she considered his 16-year-old daughter “hot.”
Trump, of course, we not happy about the piece. However, it was deeply reported — the Times interviewed dozens of women, completing more than 50 interviews over six weeks. That didn’t stop Trump from lying about the article:
Everyone is laughing at the @nytimes for the lame hit piece they did on me and women.I gave them many names of women I helped-refused to use

To which Times reporter Michael Barbaro replied:
A factually inaccurate tweet: we did interview and quote women his office suggested in the story: https://t.co/Jfu05iK5Et

At this point, you have to almost admire how much Trump lies, even when he can be proven wrong. It’s like he’s a super villain. A dumb one, but still.
