Actually a mistake, ad lib or tangent is different than outright lies.

When you make a mistake, ad lib or lose your train of thought you attempt to fix it. Whereas Trump repeats those "mistakes" over and over even after being told he was wrong. Therefor that makes them outright BS.


Focusing on one point while avoiding all the rest is also outright BS. It's called cherry-picking.


No cherry picking.


I provided a list of verifiable lies and here it is again.

All False statements involving Donald Trump
There are seven pages full of verifiable lies.

All False statements involving Barack Obama
Four pages of Obama over eight years and Trump has almost doubled that in such a short time.


Yes, cherry-picking. Not only that but now you're card-stacking, which is more outright BS. As far as I can tell, Trump has spoken more in his campaign than Obama did in his entire two-terms. Obama mostly repeated speeches written for him, and rarely spoke off the top of the dome. Where are the true statements?

Yes, cherry-picking, and now card-stacking. You should work for the MSM.

First, if it is not a big deal why bring it up?

Second, I'm no one? Oh no....my wittle feelings are hurt. Don't imagine. Listen. That is the problem. People like yourself 'imagine' the things that could happen and take bits and pieces from who you choose to listen to and create an alternate reality where people like myself simply listen and move on. A lie is a lie no matter who you are. I mean, basically you are saying since you are not POTUS you can also like whenever and it means nothing.

Third, Like your self portrait in your avatar by the way....small hands and everything.



First I said I find it amazing how he can lie so much.

Second was not intended as insult..but it appeared to strike a nerve with you...sorry bout your wittle feelings.


Third...I know you're trying your best to insult and get me riled up..all I have to say is try harder..

sorry, i just can't help myself, but...how do we know each scenario of the Trump link quotes are legit as the source does not explain in full detail or provide video/links to when Trump Said all those things...how do i know it is not just a journalist spin..?
i guess i can do my own research, but i am not a journalist, as they the ones with that much energy to focus on Trump.

Listen no need to take it hard, people sometimes forget things. Even if people mention his tiny hands or his wonderful orange-ey-ness. He won't be hurt for long, cuz he'll forget soon.

You can rub his ego all you want in private no need to do it in a public forum.

And the winner IS......... (said in a Bruce Almighty kinda way)

Just one example of the misrepresentation by Politifact is this one:

Trump wrongly claims tremendous support from women

Of course, Trump's statement is that he thinks he has tremendous support from women, which is probably true, even if he doesn't actually have the support.


"I think I have tremendous support from women," Trump said in a Nov. 3, 2016, speech in Jacksonville, Fla. "Tremendous support."


Politifact gets a pants on fire rating. And this is where people get their "facts" from.

Trump is speaking from the top of his head, well I would hope so otherwise fire that speech writer. LOL

Why would anyone hire a speech writer that makes you sound like an idiot. LOL

The true statement is and always has been that Trump lies at the drop of a hat, he would do better to hire a speech writer.

I mean look at the guy compared to the other world leaders he met. LMAO. Trump should never have a public conversations with people who are obviously better spoken and more intelligent than him.

I mean if this is your guy...wow..sorry.

pointing out lies, especially ones that are easily verified is not called cherry-picking.

Not triggered? Guess that I'm not really reading this thread about it. Guess I didn't see it on Tv and hear about it on radio.

Did you just try challenge a fact that Trump only had 40 some percent of total women voted compared to Clinton 50 some percent with an opinion? LOL

What exactly HAS Trump accomplished so far? For instance, his biggest move, the immigration ban, is being held up in courts.


well we have the stock market surging to greater heights then ever before. he got companies to change their plans and stay in the US prior to even becoming a president. him running for office has brought to light just how corrupt the political parties and news media are. the list can keep on going and hes been in office what... a month? you people are ridiculous that think any newly elected president can fulfill their campaign promises in that amount of time. just for fun why dont u try to equalize your thought process and give this a look affordable care act timeline
