Trump Lie Tracker

Washpo, in their unbiased wisdom, has chosen to gift us with this live Trump Lie Tracker. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/politics/trump-claims-database/?utm_term=.0a11c2edd385 Over 3200 lies during his presidency to date? Whoa. Lets examine...

I am genuinely interested if we can examine Trump's actual quoted words and come to agreement on which are lies, and which are misinterpretations.

Please find his lies (3200 to choose from) and tell us how horrible he is -OR- find his words misinterpreted by WashPo, and tell us why they are fake news.

Discuss, but no flaming you wimps.

You want to imply that the lies I gave you, ones people identified as his biggest lies don't stand up to scrutiny,


A list of lies from KNOWN left wing, radical, liberal websites don't stand up to scrutiny. Everyone of the links you posted above are known for their regular Hit Pieces on Trump and lean heavily to the radical left.

Maybe pick a neutral site, that might have some credibility with others here, otherwise it's just more TDS.

There is plenty of evidence given with each pants on fire level lie. And aslo with some of the links I posted that were deleted. The funny thing is, that even among republicans that aren't totally dishonest dirtbags, Trump's lying, that is the fact that he lies constantly, in a totally different way than any other politician in modern times, about things both important and unimportant, is not a debatable topic.

I'm guessing that even TPB would agree that Trump is bullshitting constantly, constantly lying. That's why he likes him (correct me if I'm wrong).

You like it. Okay. His lying that is. CBOE wants to say it really isn't lying. OR he wants want to insist I talk about one specific lie. I've already seen two failed attempts to discredit two of his t very unimportant lies (that were totally 100% lies). If I thought he was capable of arguing about Trump in good faith, maybe I'd play.

I posted a page full of links to what various journalists risked their careers defining what they believed were Trumps biggest lies of 2017. I get it, maybe you think truth or verifiable facts are just ivory tower bullshit that those liberals in academia believe in. But in my world and fortunately the world of most halfway honest people, you don't get to totally lie about what's a lie, just becasue you're the New York Times. Or at least not without ruining your reputation with reality based folks.

Trump estimating his inauguration had the largest audience in history is legit. Plenty of facts support the likelihood of this being true. https://variety.com/2017/digital/news/donald-trump-inauguration-twitters-live-stream-viewing-1201968128/ https://www.akamai.com/us/en/about/news/press/2017-press/inauguration-sets-record-for-live-video-streaming-of-news-event-on-akamai.jsp

The actual number is unknown, but the enormous increase in digital streaming could easily have Trump's inauguration as largest ever. Therefore: no rational person could suggest Trump lied by suggesting he thinks his total audience was largest ever.

I'm still waiting for you to offer a shred of evidence or engage in any fact whatsoever. You have so far neither offered nor countered, just thrown ad homs and generic hitpiece links.

If something is widely accepted as fact, and you can easily spend 5 minutes evaluating that yourself, there's nothing to discuss. Twitter had a bigger news feed for the 2017 inauguration live streaming than the 2009 one ? Say it isn't so. Next thing you'll be telling me is that the typical person has a way better phone and data plans in 2017 than 2009.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/01/20/us/politics/trump-inauguration-crowd.html

Even if the one photo is a little early or something. The other from the other perspective is quite clear. Trumps wasn't the biggest. But he didn't say it was the biggest becasue he thought it was the biggest. I believe Trump knows the crowds were smaller than Obama's, and the reason he lied about it, is that his (Trumps) inauguration was surprisingly big. He was interested in making sure the media was talking about how big it was, and if it took some lying to accomplish his goal, then so be it. That's just how he rolls.

The disagreement was about the crowd size, not the audience. Maybe it morphed in to that but thats not what Spicer and Kelly Ann and Trump himself were called on lying about right after the inauguration.

But if you're going to play that game, of changing the lie to something else, can we talk about after OBama apologized for saying you can keep your doctor and clarified the reality of it, later that is ?

You win. You got me to argue about a lie neither of us give a flying fuck about.

You are talking about .5% of the total estimate. No-one claimed the in person audience was the largest.marcus says

Ah ok, now we're getting somewhere. The increase in live streaming from many, many sources could have easily have resulted in a larger audience. I think the total estimate was around 60 - 70 million.

Also Trump added, "I think", noone ever said they know for certain.

To call this a lie is simplemided. It shows a willingness to believe misinterpretations. To believe these hit pieces is intellectually lazy.

Show me your evidence and prove me wrong.

Nope. Trump pointed out the crowd size was being purposely used as flawed model for total audience size. His message about biggest ever was very clearly about total worldwide audience.

I dont blame you for missing this nuance. This point specifically was lied about over and over again by the #fakenews. Thats why you have to go back to Trumps exact words or the video evidence. Otherwise its all tyrannical spin.

It means combined. He clarified w no uncertain terms. Watch the clip. Anyone suggesting he meant only in person audience is lying or misinformed (by design).
