    The New York Times has caught the President in another lie -- a lie which, sadly, his supporters will probably believe.

    FACT CHECK OF THE DAY
    Trump falsely claims GDP growth is higher than unemployment 'for the first time in 100 years'
    It has happened 185 times since 1948.

    The results of this poll are not surprising. Trump will probably denounce CNN and the poll as "fake news" -- and that won't be surprising, either.

    Donald Trump, who lives in his own little world, a world devoid of reality, continues to insist his response to the devastation in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit last September was "incredible," even though he did very little other than to criticize the San Juan mayor and the utility company and to throw a few rolls of paper towels to relief workers.

    Now Trump is dismissing a George Washington University analysis which blames 2,975 deaths on the hurricane. Trump says there were no more than 18 deaths (which is not so) and he blamed Democrats -- Democrats! -- for coming up with the higher number to make him "look bad" (which is also not so -- and, anyway, Trump needs no help in making himself look bad).

    Garret Ventry, an aide to Senator Chuck Grassley who had been coordinating the Senate Judiciary Committee's response to the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, has resigned over sexual harassment allegations. Oh the irony! Memo to American women: Do not vote for Republicans in November.

    Two days ago we earned that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein considered secretly recording his conversations with Trump and considered using the 25th Amendment to get Trump out of office. Advisers are warning Trump against firing Rosenstein before the November elections. The Secretary of State has a differing view. We can refer to these as "dueling headlines":

    Trump advisers urge him to not dismiss Rosenstein

    Donald Trump wants "openness" and "transparency"? Wow, when did that start? Here is the latest update from that "smooth-running machine" (as Trump describes the White House):

    Rosenstein to meet with Trump Thursday
    CNN, Sep 24 2018 3:27 PM ET

    President Donald Trump will meet with Rod Rosenstein Thursday after the deputy attorney general went to the White House today expecting to be fired. Rosenstein met with chief of staff John Kelly and spoke with Trump, who is in New York for the United Nations General Assembly and meeting with foreign leaders. "I'm meeting with Rod Rosenstein on Thursday when I get back from all of these meetings," Trump said. "We'll be meeting at the White House and we'll be determining what's going on. We want to have transparency, we want to have openness." If Rosenstein leaves, his departure would spark immediate questions about the long-term job security of special counsel Robert Mueller. Noel Francisco, the solicitor general, would take on oversight of Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
