Lying Bigly in 2017

December 26, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

The only consistency in the most erratic presidency in US history is falsehood.  Trump’s entire career and image are build on a mountain of lies, and lying is so deeply imbedded in his DNA that he will tell a lie even if telling the truth is easier and better for him.  NBC News culled through the encyclopedia of his lies and picked out their top 9.  Here they are:

  1. More people watched his inaugural than ever before.
  2. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote because of voter fraud.
  3. Michael Flynn did nothing wrong.
  4. “Look what happened last night in Sweden”.
  5. Obama bugged Cheeto Tower.
  6. Russian meddling in the election was “a made up story”.
  7. Counter protestors in Charlottesville lacked a permit.
  8. America pays the most in taxes.
  9. Tax “reform” will cost me a fortune.

This is a pretty deplorable list, for sure.  What’s your favorite lie told by Trump this year?

  1. Time Magazine called to offer me the Man of the Year award, but I declined because of the interview and photo shoot.

    Lying Staff Member Honorable mention: those of us in the know understand what “covfefe” means.

  2. lobstershift says:

    Whatever he’s doing right now to undermine the FBI, which serves his purposes but which means that their efforts across the country and around the world are suspect and will be for years to come.

  3. My favorite lie is when he put his short-fingered hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America.

  4. Don A in Pennsyltucky says:

    A liar tells his story so often that he gets to believe it himself.— Yiddish proverb

  5. Okay, I think TTPT is gonna walk away with this one. But my personal favorite is that he’s making America great again. Traitorously false on several levels.
    Also, thanks El Jefe for stepping up.

  6. The worst thing about a liar is that he can’t believe, what any one else says.

  7. I have to go back to last year because it’s my all time favorite. At a campaign event in Charlotte last August he said:

    “But one thing I can promise you is this: I will always tell you the truth.”

  8. This lie covers a lot of territory – –
    The implementation of his promise to hire and appoint “the best people” in his administration. And what did we get? Nepotism & sycophants.

  9. Well, speaking as one of Time’s Person of the Year in 2006,
    I don’t believe a single word that the nominally nacilbupeR Hair Drumpf says. He and Lyin’ Ryan and McTurtle can KMA.

  10. No single lie. But his constant claims that “Everyone says/knows/agrees” on multiple falsehoods.

    His most persistent lie: “No collusion with Russia”.

  11. How can you tell when the Orange Moron is lying?
    His lips are moving.

    But seriously Folks, the upshot of his inability to tell the truth is that nobody believes anything he now says. The vast majority of citizens know that the “Tax Reform” just enacted doesn’t mean a break for the middle class; it’s just shoveling $$$ to the wealthy and creating a larger deficit. What is also means is that nobody is going to believe him when he has to answer to Mueller or the women suing him for sexual assault.

    I’ll take that.

  12. “No other President has accomplished so much in his first year”.
    When I hear this, I see red and want to break something, like his head.

  13. “We are going to cover everybody.”

  14. Once again the denizens of The Worlds Most Dangerous Beauty Salon have better suggestions than NBC News! Might I humbly suggest: “”There’s nothing to that Russia story.”

  15. Alan:
    That one’s tricky. He just never said what they were gonna cover everybody with. And I’ll just leave it at that.

  16. Favorite lie? All of ’em Katie.

  17. My favorite is also the shortest – “Believe me”.

  18. georgieporgie says:

    OMG – HE is a walking lie, absolutely false and fake! Fake hair, fake tan, fake, fake, fake! We’re going to drain the swamp! Oh yeah, that was just campaign talk,according to the Orange One!

    We’re not going to touch Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security! Tell that to Lyin’ Ryan or McTurtle!

    We’re going to replace Obamacare with something BETTER! The rest of the world will respect us again… Gee, I actually could go on and on and on….

  19. slipstream says:

    “I will be so busy working, I will hardly ever leave the White House.”

  20. My tax returns are under audit.

  21. “We have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time — longer than you — they call her Pocahontas”

    To Native American hero veterans…

    In front of a painting of Andrew Jackson.

    You can’t make this up…

  22. Old Fart:
    If Mel Brooks had been turned to the dark side while making Spaceballs, the last 2 years are EXACTLY the kinda stories he’d have been making up.

  23. Marge Wood says:

    “No witnesses. Didn’t happen.” or about 75 others. Liar liar pants on fire.

  24. The most dangerous, insidious lie of all:

    “We have no choice.”

    This is what he invariably says after announcing some new inflammatory foreign policy, or another brain-dead economic scheme. We’re the most powerful, wealthy nation on earth, you pea-brained, narcissistic twit! We ALWAYS have choices!!

  25. “Believe me” means what immediately preceded was a lie.

    “No collusion, no collusion”. You’re not a Jedi master, repeating it doesn’t convince thinking people.

  26. So many to choose from: I’m smarter than the generals. I’m a very intelligent person. (My investigators in Hawaii) can’t believe what they’re finding. Fake news. Day one I’m going to…
