Don't take it from me...Trumpery's ratings...

Post by T on Sun Sep 18, 2016 2:27 pm

Trumpery is a GD liar. But...don't take it from me.  Here are just a few of Politifact's ratings of Trumpery's truthfulness:

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: "I finished" the controversy about where President Barack Obama was born.


____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: "Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy."


____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
On whether Barack Obama was born in the United States.


____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: "My opponent has no child care plan."

(It's right there on her website)
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: Hillary Clinton has "not answered a single question" about her immigration plan.

(She has said plenty)
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: "Our veterans, in many cases, are being treated worse than illegal immigrants."


____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: Russian President Vladimir Putin "calls me brilliant."

(Lost in translation)
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: Hillary Clinton said the Veterans Affairs scandal is "over-exaggerated." "She said she was satisfied with what was going on."


____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: "I was totally against the war in Iraq."


____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: "I released the most extensive financial review of anybody in the history of politics. … You don't learn much in a tax return."

(Tax returns are a glaring omission)
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: "Hillary Clinton has pledged amnesty in her first 100 days, and her plan will provide Obamacare, Social Security, and Medicare for illegal immigrants, breaking the federal budget."

(No, probably, and no)
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: The number of illegal immigrants "could be 3 million. It could be 30 million."

(Expert: Absolutely zero possibility)
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: "Hillary Clinton wants to shut down family farms" using "radical regulation," by raising business tax "rates as high as nearly 50 percent" and by taxing "family farms again at death by as much as 45 percent."

(A lot of fertilizer here)
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: "Inner-city crime is reaching record levels."

(A possible uptick doesn't erase 25 years of decline)
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: "They were going to build the wall a while ago, not so long ago, like in '06. And they couldn't get environmental impact statements."

(Environmental reviews waived)
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: As governor, Tim Kaine "oversaw a huge increase in illegal immigration, a tremendous increase."

(Illegal immigration flat while Kaine was governor)
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Trumpery: Hillary Clinton "wants to raise taxes on African-American owned businesses to as much as nearly 50 percent more than they're paying now."

(No part of Clinton's plan backs up muddled talking point)

But...I'll cut Trumpery some slack.  Maybe he's not a compulsive liar.  

He might be just ignorant. dunno
