What a disingenuous article. Where did Trump actually say he's "the nation's top cop"?

Oh, he didn't!

Right. He said this:

“I’m allowed to be totally involved. I’m actually, I guess, the chief law enforcement officer of the country. But I’ve chosen not to be involved,” he told reporters on Tuesday.

What's the difference?

NOTE: The above is a typing error. The last letter of the word "COP" should be "N," not "P."

I have found that there is one tried and true way to tell whether Mr. Trump is lying or not; check to see if his lips are moving.

He also lies without moving his lips. You also need to check whether his tiny hands are tapping out a tweet.

Honestly, they shouldn't have changed it to 'the nation's top cop' for the headline as he didn't actually say that.

He said the same thing less colloquially. It's nonsense whichever way he said it.

So headlines have to be quotes now? Why? So his supporters can keep up with the conversation?

Anyway, one will realize that what Trump says is true as soon as one realizes the line between American cop and mafia is so thin it may as well be chalk on the pavement.

As a little hint: headlines are not articles.

Honestly, they shouldn't have changed it to 'the nation's top cop' for the headline as he didn't actually say that. They should have just stuck to what his actual words were.

He may not be a cop, but I suspect he will be a convict once he is voted out of office.
