NY Times Compiles Definitive List of Trump’s Lies

41 minutes ago

An opinion piece by the New York Times is making some noise on Twitter and for good reason. The op-ed simply titled “Trump’s Lies” is a comprehensive compilation of the president’s greatest hits since the day he took office — each fib accompanied with the reason the paper of record believed it to be a falsehood. “There is simply no precedent for an American president to spend so much time telling untruths,” the NY Times argued. “Every president has shaded the truth or told occasional whoppers.
