    In one of the Dutch papers (the Volkskrant) there’s article about how wiki facts checking.
    It’s concluded that 70% of claims made by the US president are false.

    Here’s a Canadian based site which facts checks as well:

    I mean, how bloody ridiculous is this? Can’t a president be shot like a rabid dog for serial-lying?

    The short answer is "No" The standard defense is "all politicians lie" the fact that Trump lies 50x more than the others matters little to his legions of lemming like followers.



    I would also ask you to consider that most Americans are not a "bunch of inbred crackers" since most Americans do not support the policies of President Trump. 🙂

    I'd be amazed if 30% of his statements and tweets were undistorted truths.

    Honestly, this is a silly trick.

    I am not a liberal at all and am deeply dismissive of what Justin Trudeau has to say, but if someone were to suggest that 70% of his claims are patently false my eyes would glaze over slightly and I would nod my head once and try to change the topic because it is an embarrassing distortion of the truth.

    You guys understand how information and facts are dealt with publicly, right..?

    Like, you can cite some economist that makes claim X, and another economist that makes claim Y, both claims are conflicting but both are generally well thought out analysis, right...

    Experts frequently disagree with each other and sometimes this can be rather shocking but often time s it is almost routine.

    Literally, in the least charitable light possible you could make it so that 50%+ of anyone's claims are "false" or that 90%+ are "true" or whatever you want (barring extreme examples) because this is simply the nature of public discourse.

    But lying nearly all the time is not.

    One of the most insightful comments about the Honourable and Esteemed President Donald J. Trump’s supporters and critics I’ve read is:

    Supporters of Trump took him seriously but not literally. Critics took him literally but not seriously.

    To be honest, it's been fun watching the Left get all bent out of shape over political figures lying and screwing whores.

    No worries, they will soon go back to being deaf, blind, and dumb after they get a "D" into the Oval Office.

    Trump lies about things like how big his inauguration audience was.

    Obama lied about the affordability and quality of our health care.

    I'll take Trump over Obama any day.

    I tried to warn people that the whole scheme was not sustainable and that it was only a ruse for a single payer system, like we have seen. I said this despite every left winged loon on here lying and saying it was not true.

    Yet I'm the big liar here?

    Hilarious.

    4 or 5 people, tops. There are at least 25 regular American contributors here.

    "Most" was a wild overstatement.
