"Hillary Clinton’s relationship to the truth is solid — but her most brazen misrepresentations come when she’s talking about herself.
In the lead-up to the first presidential debate of the general election, POLITICO subjected every statement made by both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump — in speeches, in interviews and on Twitter — to our magazine’s rigorous fact-checking process. The conclusion: Though Clinton is far more practiced at sticking to defensible policy positions and recollections of history, she’s significantly more lax when addressing her own transgressions — the potential Achilles’ heel of a candidacy marred by questions of her truthfulness."
It's obvious that if Hillary was President, she'd have one of the least transparent administrations in the history of this country. She's avoided telling the truth for so many decades, there's no way she's going to be forthcoming about much of anything at all. Just carefully worded, sterile (boring), statements like she's always given. And many of those will later be proven to be intentional, blatant LIES... just like we're seeing now, regarding many of Hillary Clinton's past declarations, stories, statements, etc..
The conclusion is inescapable: Trump’s mishandling of facts and propensity for exaggeration so greatly exceed Clinton’s as to make the comparison almost ludicrous.
According to POLITICO’s five-day analysis, Trump averaged about one falsehood every three minutes and 15 seconds over nearly five hours of remarks. In raw numbers, that’s 87 erroneous statements in five days.
Though Clinton spoke for less than half as long as Trump, extrapolating the frequency of her misstatements suggests that even if she, too, spoke for as many hours as Trump, he'd still surpass her nearly four times over.

My conclusion is that Donald Trump is a less polished liar.
On June 23, near death with what he said was liver cancer, Mr. Cohn was disbarred from the practice of law in New York State. In a unanimous decision, a five-judge panel of the Appellate Division of State Supreme Court said his conduct in four legal matters was "unethical," "unprofessional" and, in one case, "particularly reprehensible."
Allegations Called Smears
Mr. Cohn denied that there was any substance to the allegations and contended that his disbarment was the result of a smear campaign engineered by his enemies - "a bunch of yo-yos" - because "the establishment bar hates my guts."

Hillary's lies are willful and deliberate.
Trump's are accidental?
You find that comforting? That he doesn't know what he's talking about so he makes stuff up on the spot?
