“I will never lie to you. You have my word on that.”
Trump toady Kayleigh McEnany said this to Associated Press reporter Jill Colvin, during McEnany's first press briefing as press secretary on Friday
McEnany also said that impeached President Donald Trump has never lied to the American people, which is of course another lie.
