New York (eTruePolitics) – Former professional cyclist Lance Armstrong announced today that he was supporting current Republican candidate Donald Trump for president.

Armstrong spoke to the press after a private conversation in Trump Tower.

“Those of us with a genetic predisposition to lying know how insidious our disease is,” explained Armstrong, “and we understand the courage it takes to admit we have a problem. Mr. Trump shared with me that he knew he had a prevarication problem and said he was working on it but it was hard because people are so stupid and he gets tempted a lot.  Which I totally get.

“Also, Mr. Trump said that even though he wasn’t pivoting one bit, he promised me that he would reduce his daily lying by so much I wouldn’t believe it and not attack any Gold Star parents unless he is provoked,'” said Armstrong.

“I believe him.”
