President Donald Trump kicked off his week by claiming on Twitter that he would seriously consider testifying before the House impeachment inquiry committee in order to “get Congress focused again.”

Over the weekend, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi remarked that the president had an open invitation to provide any evidence he might have that would clear him in the Ukraine scandal that precipitated a formal impeachment investigation in late September. Pelosi said on “Face the Nation”:

“If he has information that is exculpatory, that means ex, taking away, culpable, blame, then we look forward to seeing it. (He) could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants, if he wants.”

On Monday morning, Trump posted these two tweets:

Does anyone other than the most deeply deluded Trump supporters actually believe he would dare raise his hand and swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? When you consider that this president lies almost as often as he breathes, does he even know what truth is anymore?

Social media pelted Trump with well-earned scorn and laughter:
