To begin I’ll set forth evidence that Trump is indeed a liar. That he lies about his lies. That he makes up lies to distract from other lies. And lies about anything, great or small. In short, Trump is such an habitual liar that he daily, casually, with almost every breath LIES.
“We are not even into February and the cost of illegal immigration so far this year is $18,959,495,168. Cost Friday was $603,331,392. There are at least 25,772,342 illegal aliens, not the 11,000,000 that have been reported for years, in our Country.”
It’s True: Trump Is Lying More, and He’s Doing It on Purpose
On Thursday, the Washington Post published a remarkable story on its front page revealing a recent spike in the number of “false and misleading claims” made by President Trump. In his first year as President, Trump made 2,140 false claims, according to the Post. In just the last six months, he has nearly doubled that total to 4,229. In June and July, he averaged sixteen false claims a day. On July 5th, the Post found what appears to be Trump’s most untruthful day yet: seventy-six per cent of the ninety-eight factual assertions he made in a campaign-style rally in Great Falls, Montana, were “false, misleading or unsupported by evidence.” Trump’s rallies have become the signature events of his Presidency, and it is there that the President most often plays fast and loose with the facts, in service to his political priorities and to telling his fervent supporters what they want and expect to hear from him. At another rally this week, in Tampa, Trump made thirty-five false and misleading claims, on subjects ranging from trade with China to the size of his tax cut.

The 25 Worst Lies From Donald Trump’s First 200 Days
The reason I established that Trump is a “Liar’s Liar” is because we will now look at some serious claims he made, and some serious charges against him, and with the FACT firmly entrenched that Trump IS a liar, it should dissuade ALL but the most rabid Trumpster from believing ANYTHING Trump says as a rebuttal.
The utter collapse of Donald Trump’s ‘best people’ boast
‘He’s doing the enemy’s job for them’: Current and former officials compare Trump to a toddler and say his attacks on the intel community create a goldmine for foreign governments
- President Donald Trump’s most recent public campaign against the US intelligence community has stunned current and former intelligence officials.
- “He’s doing the enemy’s job for them,” one FBI agent told INSIDER.
- Another agent compared Trump’s unwillingness to accept intelligence assessments that contradict his beliefs to the behavior of a toddler.
- “It’s like when my son threw temper tantrums when I told him he couldn’t do something or if I said something he didn’t like. Of course, my son was three years old at the time and wasn’t sitting in the Oval Office with the nuclear button,” the second agent told INSIDER.
- As a result of Trump’s actions, intelligence officers are “more vulnerable to approaches by foreign intelligence services — and more vulnerable to accepting those approaches — than any other time in US history,” Glenn Carle, a former CIA covert operative, told INSIDER.
- “For decades, the Soviet Union and, more recently, Russia, have denigrated the CIA and our intelligence professionals, attempting to delegitimize US intelligence in the process,” another intelligence veteran, Ned Price, said. “Now our adversaries have a helper who sits in the Oval Office.”
President Donald Trump’s public insults against his top intelligence chiefs and apparent unwillingness to accept assessments that contradict his own beliefs pose a dire threat to US national security and create a goldmine for foreign intelligence services to exploit, current and former intelligence officials told INSIDER.
Trump’s latest attacks came after US intelligence leaders, including FBI director Chris Wray, CIA director Gina Haspel, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee at an annual hearing on Tuesday regarding the top global security threats facing the country.
Trump grew enraged when, among other things, the officials testified that while Iran is still a global threat, it is complying with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), an international deal the Obama administration spearheaded that’s designed to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
The assertion directly contradicted the president’s claims that Iran is violating the deal and poses an imminent nuclear threat to the US. The officials also offered intelligence assessments on other hot-button issues, like the Islamic State and North Korea, that went against Trump’s foreign policy claims.
Ok. Two things from this double-whammy of Trump “Stupevilty” (DT’s Stupidity is matched, maybe exceeded, by his inherent evilness, hence my coining of the (new) word Stupevilty).
- Trump is too vain, stupid, and corrupt to ACTUALLY have the “best, most extremely vetted” people at his beck and call. The BEST do not like be associated with the stupid, evil, and lie-long failures.
- And, still, even with 3rd and 4th stringers as his “Best” even they know quite well that Trump is a pant load!
FACT: Undocumented immigrants commit crimes at a considerably lower rate than Donald Trump’s campaign staff.

Investigations Related to the 2016 Election
How Putin’s oligarchs funneled millions into GOP campaigns
As Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team probes deeper into potential collusion between Trump officials and representatives of the Russian government, investigators are taking a closer look at political contributions made by U.S. citizens with close ties to Russia.
Buried in the campaign finance reports available to the public are some troubling connections between a group of wealthy donors with ties to Russia and their political contributions to President Donald Trump and a number of top Republican leaders. And thanks to changes in campaign finance laws, the political contributions are legal. We have allowed our campaign finance laws to become a strategic threat to our country.
An example is Len Blavatnik, a dual U.S.-U.K. citizen and one of the largest donors to GOP political action committees in the 2015-16 election cycle. Blavatnik’s family emigrated to the U.S. in the late ’70s from the U.S.S.R. and he returned to Russia when the Soviet Union began to collapse in the late ’80s.
Data from the Federal Election Commission show that Blavatnik’s campaign contributions dating back to 2009-10 were fairly balanced across party lines and relatively modest for a billionaire. During that season he contributed $53,400. His contributions increased to $135,552 in 2011-12 and to $273,600 in 2013-14, still bipartisan.
In 2015-16, everything changed. Blavatnik’s political contributions soared and made a hard right turn as he pumped $6.35 million into GOP political action committees, with millions of dollars going to top Republican leaders including Sens. Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham.
In 2017, donations continued, with $41,000 going to both Republican and Democrat candidates, along with $1 million to McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund.
So is this legal?
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking Democratic leader on the House Intelligence Committee, told ABC News in September: “Unless the contributions were directed by a foreigner, they would be legal, but could still be of interest to investigators examining allegations of Russian influence on the 2016 campaign. Obviously, if there were those that had associations with the Kremlin that were contributing, that would be of keen concern.”
Under federal law, foreigner nationals are barred from contributing directly or indirectly to political campaigns in local, state and federal elections.
Should Blavatnik’s contributions concern Mueller’s team of investigators? Take a look at his long-time business associates in Russia…
Hmmmm. Seems we have almost every person associated with Trump also associated with Putin and RUSSIAN Oligarchs…
I’m sure it’s all innocent talk about, oh, say, ADOPTION….
Now for some commentary from some Twitter Patriots:
“If I hear one more Evangelical claim that God chose Donald Trump, I’m swear I’m gonna rapture myself. Christian Trumpers really need to stop spiritualizing the man, his campaign, and his Presidency. It’s sinful. It’s blasphemous. It’s lousy evangelism. It’s also just plain asinine. In fact, in the most dizzying display of theological spin doctoring, it is now precisely his ever-growing trail of personal toxic discharge that supposedly proves evidence of God’s hand in it all. So Trump’s multiple marriages, his porn star affairs, his mountain of sexual assault claims, his verbal obscenities, his disregard for rule of law, his compulsive lying, his unrelenting attacks on marginalized communities (things these Christians would have figuratively and almost literally crucified Obama for) are now unmistakable signs that God is using this President. This is nonsense of Biblical proportions; to try and draw some line between Jesus of Nazareth and Don of New York, is about as farcical as you can get without actually spontaneously combusting from the cognitive dissonance. Dying to justify their own allegiances to Trump, Evangelicals have lumped him in with other famously flawed heroes of Scripture, suggesting he is actually God’s anointed, imperfect tool of salvation—in the tradition of the Old Testament.(Well, God did apparently use the jawbone of an ass, so I guess there is precedent) In all seriousness, this sanctified retrofitting of this godless President to any kind of Providential momentum is the height of absurdity. By that measurement, let’s find all the most reprehensible human beings we can, give them carte blanche in our seats of power—and see just what God can do! No, Donald Trump wasn’t anointed by God. He isn’t an instrument of Divine will. He isn’t Biblically hastening Armageddon or Jesus’ return. That’s it. No Providence. No Divine messages. No Biblical prophecies. No spiritual movements. Just ordinary human beings who chose really, really poorly when they should have known better. Stop namedropping God. God didn’t vote for the guy who said he could grab women by the genitalia. God didn’t choose the guy who said protestors should be beaten. God didn’t go with the guy endorsed by the KKK. God didn’t excuse the bankruptcies and overlook the affairs. I’m pretty sure people did that—lots of supposedly Christian folks. We really should stop pretending God is responsible for this fast food dumpster fire, when it’s clear whose hand is in it all. God does not consent. Pray on that.” H/T -John Pavlovitz
LASTLY, MORE BROKEN PROMISES, AKA LIES FROM DT:
I will conclude by asking ONE very important question:
Does Trump really think he can lie his way out of going to prison??
