With news circulating that Donald Trump is warning debate moderators not to fact-check him in real time, Hillary Clinton saved the moderators some trouble — by releasing her own well-documented 19-page list containing every single instance Trump lied during the election season.
Trump has astounded the media thus far because he’s fully committed to his alternate reality where he denies saying things he’s been recorded saying, where he continues peddling thoroughly debunked lies as facts, and insists on seeing or hearing things that simply never happened. And the media just can’t keep up, because while they’re debunking one of his claims, he’s gone off and spouted five or six more lies. It’s maddening.
So the Clinton campaign made it easy and released a full list of every instance Trump has outright lied to America. Here are some of the most damning examples:
Some of Trump’s biggest lies on climate change include claiming there is no drought in California, that wind farms kill more than a million birds per year, and spraying his hair with hairspray in his hermetically sealed apartment will keep bad chemicals from leaking into the Earth’s atmosphere.
Clinton’s campaign pointed out the time Trump tweeted crime statistics insisting black people were mostly to blame for crime and all the numbers were false, his claim that under Obama crime has gotten worse (it hasn’t), or that under Mayor Rudy Giuliani crime decreased by 76 percent and homicide by 84 percent.
And this doesn’t even include Trump’s lying surrogates.
Topic by topic the campaign utterly destroys the alternate universe Trump has been living in. It’s worth a read and a bookmark so you can pull it up the next time one of Trump’s supporters start echoing their puppet master. You can check it out here.
