Trump Lies More than Any Other Candidate — Ever

65%

Of what Donald Trump says is lying, according to the Washington Post: “There’s never been a presidential candidate like Donald Trump — someone so cavalier about the facts and so unwilling to ever admit error, even in the face of overwhelming evidence. At last count, nearly 65 percent (17 of 27) of our rulings of his statements turned out to be Four Pinocchios, our worst rating. By contrast, most politicians tend to earn Four Pinocchios 10 to 20 percent of the time. (Moreover, most of the remaining ratings for Trump are Three Pinocchios.)”

    Hey Buck,

    I think there’s one presidential candidate you may have forgotten about, or probably didn’t even think to check. That would be Barack Obama, and everything he said as a candidate was a lie. “The ACA won’t add a cent to your taxes.” Then there was “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”

    True to form, though, Obama has not said one truthful word since coming to power. Every single word from his mouth has been, is now, and until January will be, a total lie.
