In a new poll, people rated Donald Trump as more honest than Hillary Clinton by a margin of 46-38%. This is ridiculous but it just shows the power of Trump repeatedly referring to her as ‘crooked Hillary’ like he referred earlier to ‘Lying Ted’ Cruz, thus shifting attention away from his own repeated falsehoods.
And he does this despite the fact that he is a serial liar who is absolutely shameless about the fact that his lies are easily documented. Here is a list of 101 of his greatest lies.
Recently he has denied that he had said that he knew Russian president Vladimir Putin. But here too there is an actual recording of a 2013 interview where he repeatedly boasts about it. Michael Isikoff reports that earlier Trump had denied associating with a racist mobster, despite the mobster’s daughter saying that they had a close relationship, but there too a recording has emerged that shows the two together.
None of this will faze his supporters, of course, but it is astounding that anyone would consider him honest at all.
