According to the Washington Post fact checkers, Donald Trump is the winner of the biggest liar of the year award for his, “exaggerations and false claims.”
The Washington Post fact checkers had this to say about Donald Trump;
“There has never been a serial exaggerator in recent American politics like the president-elect. He not only consistently makes false claims but also repeats them, even though they have been proven wrong. He always insists he is right, no matter how little evidence he has for his claim or how easily his statement is debunked. During the campaign, Trump earned 59 Four-Pinocchio ratings, compared with seven for Hillary Clinton. Since winning the presidency, Trump has earned four more Four-Pinocchio ratings, and his staff has earned one, as well. Unfortunately, we see little indication that this pattern will change during his presidency.”
Trump wasn’t the only one hammered by Post fact checkers. They actually threw in a couple of Democrats, including Obama.
“Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile claimed “CNN has never provided me with questions, absolutely ever” and Obama claimed, “We have fired a whole bunch of people who are in charge of these [VA] facilities.”
The Washington Post even threw Hillary Clinton into the mix but cited only one example.
Hillary stated, “FBI Director Comey said my answers were truthful.”
Another liberal fact checking group, Politifact, gave Trump the same award last year.
