"Trump's Lies": The Collected Works
New York Times compiles presidential falsehoods from Donald Trump's first day in office to present
In an effort to make sure that people do not become "numb" to the constant lies told by President of the United States Donald Trump, the New York Times has now published, in one convenient place, "nearly every outright lie he has told publicly since taking the oath of office."
Compiled by the newspaper's David Leonhardt and Stuart A. Thompson, the catalog was published online Friday and will appear in print over the weekend.
"There is simply no precedent for an American president to spend so much time telling untruths," the Times reports. "Every president has shaded the truth or told occasional whoppers. No other president — of either party — has behaved as Trump is behaving. He is trying to create an atmosphere in which reality is irrelevant."
