Bookmakers taking bets on how many times Trump will lie tonight

The over/under is 3.5, which seems really, really low. Seems you could bankrupt a casino betting on Trump’s lack of candor. Then again, who’d ever be dumb enough to bankrupt a casino?

From The New York Daily News:

BookMaker, an offshore gambling house that claims 30 years in the business, is laying odds on how many times President Trump will lie when he addresses the nation at 9 p.m.

Trump is expected to make his case about building a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico. The Federal Government has been under a partial shutdown since Dec. 22 while the President and congress have stood firm on opposite sides of the wall funding debate.

Online gamblers can place up to $500 per bet on how many “false statements” Trump will make by logging onto BookMaker.Eu, where the over-under is 3.5. That means bettors who believe the President to be a man of integrity can win money by wagering the Trump makes fewer than three and a half statements that are demonstrably untrue.

You’ve still got time. I’m not a gambler, but if I had to bet, I’d say approximately 18 lies, give or take. Of course, the speech is just eight minutes long. So, let’s say 25 then.
