  • President Donald Trump seemed to be in his element during a segment on law and order during Tuesday night's presidential debate — at least until he boasted that he had secured the endorsement of the "Portland sheriff.
  • Trump had goaded Democratic nominee Joe Biden to name a law enforcement agency that supports him — which Biden failed to do — and bragged about his own support among the police.
  • But there was one problem: There is no Portland sheriff.
  • Presumably, Trump had intended to make a reference to Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese, whose county includes Portland, Oregon.
  • However, Reese himself quickly set the record straight on Twitter.
