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!)
