    Trump is not honest. Let's discuss his many lies. If you catch him in a lie or know of any past lies please bring it on! Lets keep him honest for a change!

      If you intend his exaggerations and errors from not doing any fact-checking as "lies" you're in for a really busy time! big_smile

          You do know he told over 2000 lies his first year in office don't you. The other day he was praising Orin Hatch and claimed Orin said he was one of the best presidents ever. Trump asked Orin, "Better than Washington and Lincoln?" and Orin replied, "yes"

          When queried about it, Orin said he said no such thing. Was that deliberate or not?

          The day after the State of the Union Address Trump claimed it was the most watched address in history. Actually it was only the 6th most watched. Was that deliberate or not?

          I suppose when Trump tells a lie his voters can tell if it is a deliberate lie or just an ordinary ten times a day lie. I give up! How can you guys tell the difference?  hmm

      It seems to me, he never deliberately lies, but to make a point he uses fact-free exaggerations. He lives and thinks large, directly and logically ... he doesn't look up facts and figures in this state of mind. He throws out generalizations to illustrate a point and paints with a broad brush, but deliberate lies ... I don't think so, but I could be wrong. I just think his boundaries are a bit broken as far as fact checking before he opens his mouth.

        That's about the way I see it, too.  And I'll add that I think if he ever does give us a deliberate lie it's going to take a lot more than 30 seconds with Google to prove him wrong.

    This statement was called a LIE in one of the links above: 

    "We essentially repealed Obamacare because we got rid of the individual mandate ... and that was a primary source of funding of Obamacare." This statement was called a LIE. 


    HOW is it not true?

    This is an example of how Trump thinks and behaves:
    TRUMP:  "We got 306 because people came out and voted like they’ve never seen before so that’s the way it goes. I guess it was the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan,"

    From the link: "Trump actually won 304 electoral votes, because two faithless electors refused to cast their vote for him when the Electoral College met. That, it's true, couldn't top Reagan's historic margin of 525 votes in 1984 — but quite a few other presidents have come closer than Trump.

    George H. W. Bush won with 426 electoral votes in 1988. Bill Clinton won with 370 votes in 1992 and 379 in 1996, and Barack Obama won with 365 votes in 2008.

    After Trump made the false claim Thursday, NBC News reporter Peter Alexander asked the president how Americans could trust him if he spreads false information — and Trump didn't really answer.

    'Well, I was just given that information. I don't know. I was just given... We had a very big margin,' Trump said.

    Alexander repeated his question.

    'Why should Americans trust you when you accuse information they receive of being fake when you're providing information that's...' Alexander said until he was cut off by Trump.

    "Well, I don't know. I was given that information. Actually, I've seen that information around,

    ----------> but it was a very substantial victory, do you agree with that?""

    Trump was trying to communicate the enthusiasm people have for him and also equating himself with Reagan and the true values of the country. Supposedly, Trump used to be a liberal as Reagan was. Reagan would explain that the party left HIM. Perhaps, Trump understands the direction today's libs will take the country.

    Is this what you want a successful business man to say?

    "Oh yes, I want a socialistic country where I won't be able to be a successful business man. Oh yes, I wants socialism to tie my hands and TAKE ...

    How does he get away with exaggerations like this one:
    "I *guess* it was the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan,"


    -----> People (his supporters) don't mind considering the fact that the lies of the left loom  W A Y  larger.
