Donald Trump makes statements that earn him a “Pants on Fire” rating from PolitiFact 52 times more often than Barack Obama did while he was president. To put this in perspective, that means that Trump tells as many obvious, egregious, ridiculous lies in one week as Obama did in a whole year of his presidency.
What’s even more amazing is that Trump lies about things that are easily refuted, with absolutely no regard for the truth or reality. And yet, a third of Americans still believe him. Although that number is slowly dropping.
