President Trump has made 9,451 false or misleading claims over 801 days||CRIMSON TAZVINZWA||

His critics say President Trump has the uncanny ability to tell five lies in one sentence, and that Donald Trump lies more often than you wash your hands every day.

(CNN)In his first 869 days as President, Donald Trump said 10,796 things that were either misleading or outright false, according to The Washington Post’s Fact Checker. Do the math and you get this: The President of the United States is saying 12 untrue things a day.

Which is a lot! But it’s also hard to wrap your head around how much lying or, uh, misleading that actually is. So, think about it this way: Trump is lying more every day than a majority of Americans wash their hands. According to data from the American Cleaning Institute, just 50% of Americans wash their hands in excess of 10 times a day. (Not for nothing: Here’s the CDC’s guidelines on proper handwashing!)

 

Try this thought experiment: Every time you wash your hands for the rest of the day — after using the restroom, before you eat etc. — think of that as the President of the United States saying something that isn’t true. For more than half of you, that won’t even equal the number of times Trump doesn’t tell the truth every day of his presidency (including weekends!).
Trump’s willingness to bend and break the truth isn’t new. Since becoming a candidate for president way back in 2015, Trump has shown a remarkable capacity for creating his own reality, a reality that often doesn’t comport with established facts. The pace at which he misleads has increased as his presidency has gone on. So too has his willingness to directly question the idea of whether capital “T” truth even exists.
“Stick with us. Don’t believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news,” Trump told the annual VFW convention in 2018. “What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.”
Earlier this month when asked about Meghan Markle’s 2016 comment that she would move to Canada if Trump won, the President said this: “I didn’t know that she was nasty. I hope she is OK.”
Within 24 hours of making the initial comment, Trump tweeted: “I never called Meghan Markle ‘nasty.’ Made up by the Fake News Media, and they got caught cold! Will @CNN, @nytimes and others apologize? Doubt it!”
So, yeah. This a feature, not a glitch.
