I have seriously considered whether there is any valid reason to listen to remarks from TFG after his arrest on Tuesday. And I can't think of one.

What I know:

1).If his lips are moving he's outright lying, exaggerating or distorting the truth.

Meanwhile, let's check in on the revised FL school history books...
