Donald Trump is a More Prolific Liar than Hillary



I have been accused of being blind to the lies of Hillary Clinton.  It’s not that I’m unaware of Hillary’s lies and deceptions.  The problem is that I have watched politicians lie so often that it is not surprising to me that Hillary is like most other politicians in her inability to tell the truth.  Hillary is much more preferable than Trump as our next President for a vast variety of reasons.  However the truth is that “truth” can’t be the basis for not voting for Hillary. The truth is that Donald Trump is a more   prolific liar than Hillary.  Politico did a comparison of the lies of Hillary and Trump.  Their conclusion was that “Trump’s mishandling of facts and propensity for exaggeration so greatly exceed Clinton’s as to make the comparison almost ludicrous.”

There were so many lies told by Trump that instead of specifying all 87 falsehoods, Politico used the following numbers to illustrate their point:

  • Number of appearances: 6 speeches; 1 town hall, 7 TV interviews; 0 press availabilities; 37 tweets
  • Combined length of remarks (speeches, interviews): 4 hours and 43 minutes
  • Raw number of misstatements, exaggerations, falsehoods: 87
  • Rate: 1 untruth every 3.25 minutes


Trump lies so often that his supporters should realize that they would support him regardless of what he says or does.  They would never vote for Hillary regardless of what she says or does.  It’s a sad day in America when we elect the President of the United States based upon an emotional response to the person, instead of facts, character, integrity, experience, education, policies, tolerance, and the promotion of non-violent resolution of conflict.

  1. New York Times tore Donald up Sunday, listing his recent statements and lies. They set a precedent for other news agencies by setting aside part of their product to address false statements as they occur.

    Finally, the truth gets a voice in the insanity of US politics.


  2. We are entering the Age of Stupid, Malia. I blame the lazy, credulous voting base for their asinine support of Trump. THEY gave us this embarrassing idiot as a presidential candidate. And Trump’s narcissism lets him think he is presidential material. Talk about a ‘perfect storm’ of STUPID.
