Trump Makes 25 False Claims in 1 Interview

U.S. President Donald Trump sat down Thursday for a rare interview with a media outlet other than Fox News, holding an impromptu 30-minute session with New York Times reported Michael Schmidt at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Fla. He made nearly one false claim per minute -- 25 false claims in all. The Star is keeping track of every false claim Trump makes as president. As of Dec. 22, Trump had already made 978 false claims; adding the Times interview, the tally will pass the 1,000 mark in the next update. Here's every false claim Trump made in the interview.


The lying liar lies again.

Trump can't help himself. If he didn't believe his lies he'd disintegrate into a pile of dust.

We keep tellin' ya'. The man isn't banging on all eight cylinders.

His brain is infested.

But please, tell me how Trump was the best candidate again, ©Trumpvoters.

HIs supporters don't care, they love the lying and then they pretend to believe it is the truth. They are even sicker than he is.

Has it been a year yet?

Seems a bit light. Was it a short interview?

I am not sure, why anyone hears what he talks on Media... When media stops showing him, no one cares.

The media is doing the same thing Mueller is doing. It's a trap. They're letting Trump talk himself straight into a forced resignation.

Very clever.

#9 we can only hope

Good God. I think his biggest accomplishment so far has been to offer daily proof that imbecile and liar are not mutually exclusive terms.

They are called lies.

That "imbecile" figured out how to commit the biggest heist of taxpayer money we've ever seen. He also proved that you really can "take it with you" when you die. So who's the imbecile, huh?

#13 I've been asking myself the same question. I can see the left melting down, becoming less intelligent to meet him at his perceived level. Not good.

It's the Right who is melting down. They can read Trump's graffiti as well as anyone. He's a slobbering mess. Staffers are girded for a mass exodus after the mid-terms. Trump is tweeting them into an early grave. The Dems are energized by the prospects of gaining control of the House and maybe even the Senate. I know I certainly am.

Cross your fingers that Muller's report will be well timed. Trump's scorched earth politics has demorialized his own party which is now comprised of sniviling cowards and traitors to America. But the country isn't. I still have faith that America will stand up and right it's own ship of state. It always has.

If the mid-terms are truly a referendum on a presidents first two years in office, the GOP must be looking at a tsunami in their future.

HIs supporters don't care, they love the lying and then they pretend to believe it is the truth.

Part of the problem in interviewing Trump voters is that reporters are to direct. Reporters need to ask questions that establish a base line for the person being interviewed i.e. Should children be held responsible for the crimes of their parents? How do you feel about the government telling you what you can/can't do with your body? Do you like to breath clean air? Would you drink contaminated water? etc.

After the baseline has been established, ask them questions about policy and let them twist themselves into knots justifying a policy position that is contrary to their baseline responses.

It's a little bit like the people in Kentucky loving Kynect but hating Obamacare not knowing that Kynect was Obamacare.

You're thinking too small. It's going o take a massive re-education effort to get Trump supporters back on the right tack.

Nobody likes to admit they were wrong so that's expecting too much. Their decisions have to be based on things that hit close to home. Right now they're all giddy about getting more money in their paychecks which they don't realize is nothing more than a bone to keep them quiet while Trump runs off with millions.

If Trump hits up the entitlement programs like he says he going to do there will no doubt be some fallout. But they still won't realize that he's once again using their money to reimburse for what he's already heisted.

The re-education effort is already underway in the form of the Mueller investigation. But it's a slow progress due to the necessity of secrecy. When Mueller drops the bomb on Trump, his family and his entourage, the message of how badly they've been taken to the cleaners will probably set in.

In the meantime, it's vitally to important to vote the Republicans out of office in the mid-terms to start putting the brakes on the damage Trump is doing to the country.

Maybe a campaign slogan for the Democrats running for House seats should be "WE'RE NOT FOR SALE!" And then stick to it.

Citizens United and PACs have made a joke out of democracy.

Hard to compete without the cash though.

Citizens United and PACs have made an auction out of democracy.

There are other ways to fund a campaign.

Obama did it.
