    A top Trump surrogate has been caught in a huge lie, admitting to falsifying some of his professional accomplishments after CNN anchor Victor Blackwell confronted him about his manufactured credentials. Burns, a South Carolina PREACHER, regularly introduces Trump at his campaign events. He had publicly claimed on social media and his church's website that he had a Bachelor of Science degree and served six years in the Army Reserve. Burns, however, was never in the Army Reserve. Moreover, he never obtained a degree from North Greenville University. When confronted about his fabrications, Burns tried to wiggle out of it by lying again, claiming that his webpage had "obviously" been either "manipulated or either hacked or added."

    Later, finally realizing that there's no wiggling out of this big lie, he released a statement saying, "As a young man starting my church in Greenville, South Carolina, I overstated several details of my biography because I was worried I wouldn't be taken seriously as a new pastor. This was wrong, I wasn't truthful then and I have to take full responsibility for my actions." He should have added, "I wasn't truthful then, I'm not truthful now, and I will never be truthful unless I get caught again." See http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/03/politics/mark-burns-donald-trump-interview/index.html.

    Remember that this guy is a PREACHER. A p-r-e-a-c-h-e-r!.

    Burns joins a long list of TRUMPeteers with very unsavory or dubious background:

    o Melania Trump - plagiarist-in-chief (see, e.g., http://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/three-problems-with-the-melania-trump-plagiarism-admission)
    o Steve Bannon - wife beater (see, e.g., http://www.politico.com/story/2016/08/steve-bannon-domestic-violence-case-police-report-227432).
    o Paul Manafort - tied to the corruption of former Ukraine president Yanukovych (see, e.g., http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/19/politics/paul-manafort-donald-trump-ukraine/)
    o Sheriff Arpaio - under investigation for felony counts of obstructing criminal investigations of prosecutions, theft by threats, tampering with witnesses, perjury and theft by extortion (see, e.g., http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/03/07/records-fbi-urged-charges-in-ariz-abuse-of-power-case/6152807/).
    o David Duke - KKK superhero (see, e.g., http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/david-duke-donald-trump-immigration_us_57c7b4e4e4b0e60d31dd281c?section=&)
    o Corey Lewandowski - harasser-in-chief (see, e.g., http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/03/16/the-shady-past-of-corey-lewandowski-donald-trump-s-campaign-manager.html)
    o Chris Christie - central character in the NJ Bridgegate controversy (see, e.g., http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2015/12/chris-christie-bridgegate-scandal)
    o David Bossie - conspiracy theorist whose failed investigation into alleged campaign finance abuses by then-President Bill Clinton ultimately led to his resignation as chief investigator to former Republican Rep. Dan Burton (see, e.g., http://www.politico.com/story/2016/09/trump-bossie-citizens-united-227662.

    This list will only grow longer. Just watch.

    Can you name Hillary's in the manner that DOMINUS has listed Trump's? And by reputable sources, not Fox News and similar supermarket tabloid-quality outlets. Nor by wacko, extreme Right Wing propaganda machines.
