9. I don't think he lied at all


Lying requires intention not to tell the truth you know.

I don't think he remembered it accurately. I believe the man is SO racist, SO sexist, that in his mind he focused on her one comment when she gave herself credit merely for going to John Boehner, got incensed about that and didn't even hear -- or at least didn't remember all the rest of what she said.

Her speech was remarkable, IMO. Full of acknowledgment and praise for all the right people.

But she is BLACK, and a WOMAN (who clearly doesn't adhere to being all sacred and stuff), daring to mention the step she took in talking to Boehner -- and it incensed him, and that's all he remembered, and inflated it in his mind and memory to all of what he said.

ETA: She does, however, have a perfectly horrible voice that grates on MY nerves. How jarring it must have been to his manly ears (thus exacerbating the whole racist / sexist problem).
