Trump, the world's greatest liar.

The N.Y.Times reference above lists Trumps outrageous lies.

No president in history has a record of telling so many lies.

"So many" does not equate to great. To be great, the lie cannot be so in your face obvious.

Numbers vs quality are often confused.

Ha, ha. Good one Lance. You can learn. Now: work on Principal/Agent liability theory in a governmental context, and we can make some progress.

Whenever he goes off on how great tremendous extra super-duper terrific and enormously surprising his 'plans' are and their outcomes will be, one can be pretty sure he knows absolutely nothing about the subject. I wish reporters would ask him to repeat what he just gushed in such cases. Just for the fun of it. :heh:


(I'd also bet that's how his nanny got him to temper his tantrums and go along to go to the vet doctor/dentist, school when plugging him off the floor and walls and making him stay in bed. :roll:)

Indeed - the US may be better off with an incompetent liar who cannot get anything done in spite of having control of both houses, than a competent liar.

I'd think first of all he'd work for his own twisted ideology (very much aligned with T.Rump's boss) and benefit (there's a history of that), and then one should also not forget who got him into the gig. IIRC, it was Manafort who set it up.

T.rump is a great example of people who have never had consequences from saying whatever the {!#%@} they want to say. No filters, no controls.

That's because the poor dears are so often being misunderstood. For example, when they say they want "a smaller government", they mean "government (with all its benefits) for me and mine only."

Not sure. But they needed someone who, however fake, vile and corrupt, would make Donny look better. And have no qualms to go along with whatever works in their favor. His gift of seemingly answering a question without saying anything of value most likely was just another treasured boon. And who wouldn't like a man who calls his wife "Mother"? :?

you don't know if other presidents told a lot of lies...no 24 hr. t.v., twitter, cell phones back then...

Right, nothing before the last ten years, or so. But maybe they also were simply too smart to broadcast it by town crier.

My use of social media is not Presidential - its MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. Make America Great Again!



So he's saying that rampant dishonesty and becoming unhinged is the new presidential?

Media "news" story: Trump shat in his pants!
WH press release: President Trump has never and would never {!#%@} in his pants.
Trump tweet: I shat in my pants on purpose!
WH press release: Shitting in his pants was an integral part of President Trump's long-term plans, as outlined during his campaign.
Media click bait headline: You won't believe what Trump admitting doing that no President has ever done! Click here for the full story!
Trump tweet: Lying media says I shat in my pants. Fake news. So sad. I never said that.

Meanwhile, a dozen more states legalize cannabis for medicinal and recreational use because their citizens are losing it.
What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!
