Well, to be completely truthful it’s not just for Donald Trump. The bottomless Pinocchio is for any politician or individual who makes a false claim more than 20 times. He is, however, the inspiration for the new rating awarded by the Washington Post. And so far he’s the sole winner, dozens of times in fact. Trump lies so frequently, so consistently and so boldly that no other politician in recent memory comes as close to being such a fabulist as our current president.
And give him credit, he just doesn’t lie about big things. He lies about many things of different shapes and sizes and importance. Donald Trump lies the way some people breath – it’s automatic and he doesn’t even think about it. It’s a true mark of the huckster and the grifter that he is. No matter how wrong he is, no matter how off-base, no matter how made up, no matter how many times he’s been told he’s wrong, Trump continues to lie with the ferocity of an Atlantic category five hurricane.
