294 Lies and Counting

The good people at The Toronto Star have once again published a compendium of major lies Donald Trump told in public since becoming President (link here).

For instance, Trump said recently, "next week we’re opening a big coal mine. You know about that. One in Pennsylvania. It’s actually a new mine. That hadn’t happened in a long time, folks. But we're putting the people and we're putting the miners back to work."

To his blindly loyal supporters, that sounds fantastic, because since Trump became President, this massive mine was opened, creating thousands of new jobs.

In reality, the mine was approved long before Trump became President and no more than a hundred miners will work there, all workers previously employed by the same company elsewhere. Zero new jobs.

Here's another Trump lie: "Dems are taking forever to approve my people, including ambassadors. They are nothing but obstructionists! I want approvals."

Gosh, that sounds terrible, his supporters would worry. How dare those nasty Democrats block our wonderful President.

Here's the reality: Trump is the one holding up ambassadorial nominations. He has only nominated ten of the needed 188 ambassadors.

And then there's this massive Trump lie: "Our tax bill is moving along in Congress, and I believe it’s doing very well."

The Trump supporters must get goosebumps hearing things like this.

The truth is: there is utterly no tax bill in Congress. Nothing has been written. It's non-existent. A big fat zero.

Read the list. Keep it handy. It's valuable rebuttal information anytime a sadly deceived Trump supporter believes what's spewing out of his mouth. Encourage them to read independent media where Trump's claims are vetted and checked.

At this point in time, unless Trump is delusional, he cannot possibly think anyone believes him any longer, other than his most devoted followers, a number that continues to shrink.

What's amazing, nonetheless, is some people still believe the lie that Trump is pro-LGBT.
