I honestly don't remember making any tax-cut promises during my election. Besides, I don't have any lips to read...

Behind the scenes

Two of his quotes are references to real-life politicans; Bill Clinton's famous quote "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" and George H. W. Bush's promise during the presidential election in 1988 to "Read my lips: no new taxes" at the Republican National Convention. Both turned out to be false.
