John Oliver dissects Donald Trump’s lies and the sources of those lies. Don’t omit to watch at the 21:00 minute mark where Oliver produces a series of ads to be actually aired on the cable news shows that Trump watches, where the actor in a pseudo-commercial provides Trump with accurate information.

I don’t know if it even makes sense to talk about Trump and Truth in the same segment. It’s like talking about tomatoes and lunar landing… I mean, there’s some relationship there, but it’s so thin it’s hardly relevant.
Teh trum-prat is an antimatter truthrian, called a hairfurorion: Any truth in the vicinity is annihilated. Unusually, the antimatter is not also annihilated, instead, it adsorbs the released energy in its delusional field, increasing its spin, its strangeness, and its unrelativistic perception of being the centre of the universe. The non-annihilation is speculated to be a side-effect of its erratic flow through time, where things happen in different order, including not at all or more than observed by others. Money is known to be a strong attractor, and as is high levels of carbon dioxide. For some reason, mosques are a repellent, but not powerful enough to overcoming the whooshing attraction of money.
Two questions. 1) Has anyone kept track of whether a day has gone by yet in this administration in which he has NOT lied, and 2) assuming there hasn’t been, has anyone started a pool on how long we’ll have to go?
That — or a similar — metric probably is tracked somewhere, albeit offhand I have no idea where. One diary is in the Grauniad, The first 100 days of Trump, which does not directly measure lies.
The Toronto Star has The complete list of all 57 false things Donald Trump has said as president (last updated Feb 10; I am confident more lies have been said by Trump since then)
