Correcting The Record

Remember the post about Donald Trump saying he met with a “top cop” in Chicago and talked about getting tough?

According to the Chicago police, it never happened.

The Chicago Police Department denied Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s claim this week that he met with a “top” Chicago officer and argued the city’s violence would not be solved with “tough police tactics.”

“We’ve discredited this claim months ago,” CPD spokesperson Frank Giancamilli said Tuesday in a statement. “No one in the senior command at CPD has ever met with Donald Trump or a member of his campaign.”

I know; I’m totally surprised that he would bullshit about that.  Actually, I’m not at all surprised.  I was just waiting for confirmation.  Like I needed it.
