The bar just keeps getting lower and lower, doesn't it?

So he's not making the whole thing up. Though yes, it's always possible that he heard grown-ups talking about something and decided to season the facts with his own brand of bullshit and/or didn't understand.

Listen to yourselves, people! This is the level of normalcy that this craziness has sunk to! We're (I'll include myself) speculating that the so-called president MADE UP this whole Taliban meeting thing! Maybe yes, maybe no, but we all know he is CAPABLE of making up such a thing because most every word out of his mouth (or thumbs) is a LIE.

Anyway, I say he made it up, because otherwise it would have been set to be held at one of his properties.
