During an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump boasted that the head of the Boy Scouts called him up to say how wonderful his speech at the Boy Scout Jamboree was, but that apparently never happened.
Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh actually apologized for Trump's embarrassing speech and the Boy Scouts say no one from the organization called the White House.
“We are unaware of any such call,” the Boy Scouts responded in a statement. It specified that neither of the organization’s two top leaders — President Randall Stephenson and Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh — had placed such a call.
Surbaugh apologized last week to members of the scouting community who were offended by the political rhetoric in Trump’s July 24 speech in West Virginia.
Meanwhile, Trump also recently claimed that Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto called him to say how wonderful his anti-immigration policy is.
I don't think we need confirmation that that's bullshit, but here it is:
Mexico's Foreign Relations Department said in a statement late Monday that Pena Nieto "has not had any recent telephone communication with President Donald Trump." [...]
An American official confirmed that no telephone conversation recently occurred between Trump and Pena Nieto.
The suggestion became an issue, however, as Mexican opposition legislators jumped on Trump's account and complained about what sounded like a "secret phone call" between the pair, and the idea of Pena Nieto praising Trump on migration.
I would say Trump is just lying, but I don't know if it's that simple.
How do we know he's not hallucinating these conversations? Are we sure he isn't delusional? Is he mentally competent? Is he being prank called on his insecure tweeting phone? He could be both a liar and delusional.
WH's Sanders on Trump saying falsely he had spoken by phone w/Mexican president and head of Boy Scouts: "I wouldn't say it was a lie"
