 Writer Jonathan Martin with The New York Times is setting the record straight about his interview with Bob Corker after Donald Trump sent out the following tweet.

In a piece written for the the Times Martin had this to say about the interview with the Senator:

 "As the reporter who conducted the 25-minute telephone interview with Mr. Corker, I thought I would offer more insight about what actually transpired.  Far from being set up, Mr. Corker asked that I tape our conversation. 
 'I know they’re recording it, and I hope you are, too,' he said as two of his aides listened in on other lines, one of them also taping the interview. As with most on-the-record discussions with an elected official, I was recording our conversation to ensure accuracy."


 According to the article, Martin explained that two of Corker's aids made sure that the interview had been recorded to ensure Corker's comments were correct.

Twitter wasn't surprised by Trump's misinterpretation of the truth. 

These Twitter users had an interesting take on how to get to the truth. 

Sometimes there is no other choice but to laugh at the insanity of it all and that's what these people decided to do.
