FactCheck.org, for the first time ever, has named a “King of Whoppers“. As they put it, “In the 12 years of FactCheck.org’s existence, we’ve never seen his match.” And that’s saying alot, as this has been a “banner year for political whoppers.”
You can probably guess the Master of Mendacity, it’s Donald Trump.
Not only is he the ultimate at untruths, he is unparalleled at doubling down on his deception, like “when he claimed to have seen nonexistent television coverage of “thousands and thousands” of Muslims in New Jersey cheering the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on 9/11 — and then topped himself by demanding that fact-checkers apologize for exposing his claim as fantasy.”
The have a (long) list of his whoppers. Unfortunately, I get the feeling that he is just warming up.
Not only that, but Trump has appeared on Fox News more than twice as much as any other candidate.
