Preet Bharara – one of the best attorneys in the USA – tweeted, today:
Followed – in later discussion in his Twitter feed – with this fond memory:
❝ Because of summer vacation schedules, we had fallen a month behind in updating The Fact Checker’s database that analyzes, categorizes and tracks every suspect statement uttered by the president.
It turns out that’s when the president decided to turn on the spigots of false and misleading claims. As of day 558, he’s made 4,229 Trumpian claims — an increase of 978 in just two months.
That’s an overall average of nearly 7.6 claims a day…
Call ’em LIES! That’s what they are.
❝ We also have catalogued the president’s many flip-flops, since those earn Upside-Down Pinocchios if a politician shifts position on an issue without acknowledging that he or she did so.
Hey, someone has to keep track of all this crap for posterity. May as well be some of the journalists Trumpo fears so much.
Thanks, gocomics.org and, frankly, it’s hard to choose between all the really talented and insightful cartoons they have about our fake president, tonight.
Someone tell Congress. If you can find someone there who understands more than 6th-grade-schoolyard-politics.
Thanks, Barry Ritholtz
Looks like most of the Republican Party is getting really good at this.
