Trump the GLOAT

Donald Trump should be officially recognized as the Greatest Liar of All Time – the GLOAT to end all GLOATs.

After all, almost every sentence contains a lie or misrepresentation of some sort.

Back in 2017, Carole McGranahan in the American Ethnologist journal stated, “Donald Trump is different”…and the most “accomplished and effective liar” thus far to have ever participated in American politics.

But Trump went on from there. Fact-checkers from The Washington Post, the Toronto Star, and CNN compiled data on “false or misleading claims”, and “false claims”, respectively. The Post reported 30,573 false or misleading claims in four years, an average of more than 21 per day.

But Trump hasn’t slowed down. In his recent New Hampshire Town Hall, he reiterated all the old lies and added a few more. Although he was convicted of sexual battery and defamation in the recent E. Jean Carroll case, Trump claimed “I don’t know her. I never met her.” There’s one large problem with that. Four years ago, The New York Times published a picture of Carroll and Trump and their spouses conversing.

Trump claimed he built hundreds of miles of border walls and finished the job. He did neither. His administration repaired existing walls, but only added 47 miles of new walls.

He also declared that he “offered” 10,000 National Guard troops to stop the January 6th violence. Every single figure who had authority to request or authorize such troops, as well as extensive documentation, refuted that claim.

Another lie was the statement that the U.S. has provided $171 billion in aid to Ukraine and that we’ve sent so much that the U.S. is out of ammunition. The current aid total is $37 billion, and the U.S. certainly not out of ammunition.

And then, when Caitlin Collins had the courage to point out his untruths, Trump had the nerve to say, “You’re a nasty person.” Nasty for pointing out that he lied?

But then, what else can you expect from the GLOAT?

    What I wonder about is why anyone is surprised when he lies or attacks people who call him on it. He is the GLOAT and the personification of the phrase – How do you know he is lying? His lips are moving.
    What has me confused is his supporters who somehow believe he only lies to the libs and would never lie to them.

      … How do you know he is lying? His lips are moving. …

      But I do not recall him telling his supporters “Read My Lips” …! Clever eh?

    I believe his ardent supporters know that Trump is a con artist. The weird thing is that, for some reason, they think they’re in on the con.
    “We’re driving those stupid libs crazy,” they think with glee.

    1. Bill says:

      Isn’t that the bigger con? Either it is a Ponzi scheme or I need your help stealing from other people – you just need to put in some money first so people think it is real.

    I thought when I saw the title that GLOAT would stand for Greatest Loser of All Time.

    I mean, after his time in the limelight, can anyone find one truly constructive thing he’s ever done? One accomplishment that benefited anyone but him and his family.

    Historians are going to vilify him as the worst ever. (Or the start of America’s disintegration, but I don’t even want to think about that.)
