Donald Trump lies more often than you wash your hands every day

He's a lying machine...

Quote:
In his first 869 days as President, Donald Trump said 10,796 things that were either misleading or outright false, according to The Washington Post's Fact Checker. Do the math and you get this: The President of the United States is saying 12 untrue things a day.

Which is a lot! But it's also hard to wrap your head around how much lying or, uh, misleading that actually is. So, think about it this way: Trump is lying more every day than a majority of Americans wash their hands.

According to data from the American Cleaning Institute, just 50% of Americans wash their hands in excess of 10 times a day. (Not for nothing: Here's the CDC's guidelines on proper handwashing!)

Try this thought experiment: Every time you wash your hands for the rest of the day -- after using the restroom, before you eat etc. -- think of that as the President of the United States saying something that isn't true. For more than half of you, that won't even equal the number of times Trump doesn't tell the truth every day of his presidency (including weekends!).

Trump's willingness to bend and break the truth isn't new. Since becoming a candidate for president way back in 2015, Trump has shown a remarkable capacity for creating his own reality, a reality that often doesn't comport with established facts. The pace at which he misleads has increased as his presidency has gone on. So too has his willingness to directly question the idea of whether capital "T" truth even exists.

"Stick with us. Don't believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news," Trump told the annual VFW convention in 2018. "What you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening."

Earlier this month when asked about Meghan Markle's 2016 comment that she would move to Canada if Trump won, the President said this: "I didn't know that she was nasty. I hope she is OK."

Within 24 hours of making the initial comment, Trump tweeted: "I never called Meghan Markle 'nasty.' Made up by the Fake News Media, and they got caught cold! Will @CNN, @nytimes and others apologize? Doubt it!"

So, yeah. This a feature, not a glitch.
  

What is the cost of lies? It's not that we'll mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that if we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all. What can we do then? What else is left but to abandon the hope of truth and content ourselves instead with stories. In these stories it doesn't matter who the heroes are. All we want to know is who is to blame. - V.

If cultural appropriation is a thing, why do black people play basketball?

I think it’s about black people washing their hands a lot. Because basketballs are dirty.

Kevin Durant is back in action against Toronto right now. But I’m not sure how much of a difference it will make.

I see. Perhaps if the basketball court was cleaned more often the balls wouldn't get so dirty thereby eliminating the need for so much hand washing.
