Trumps lying is increasing exponentially.

At some point, this lying thing has to hit critical mass. Right?

Courtesy of WaPo:

As of day 558, he’s made 4,229 Trumpian claims — an increase of 978 in just two months.

That’s an overall average of nearly 7.6 claims a day.

When we first started this project for the president’s first 100 days, he averaged 4.9 claims a day. But the average number of claims per day keeps climbing the longer Trump stays in office. In fact, in June and July, the president averaged 16 claims a day.

Put another way: In his first year as president, Trump made 2,140 false or misleading claims. Now, just six months later, he has almost doubled that total.

On July 5, the president reached a new daily high of 79 false and misleading claims. On a monthly basis, June and July rank in first and second place, with 532 and 446 claims, respectively.

Trump has a proclivity to repeat, over and over, many of his false or misleading statements. We’ve counted nearly 150 claims that the president has repeated at least three times, some with breathtaking frequency.

Almost one-third of Trump’s claims — 1,293 — relate to economic issues, trade deals or jobs. He frequently takes credit for jobs created before he became president or company decisions with which he had no role. He cites his “incredible success” in terms of job growth, even though annual job growth under his presidency has been slower than the last five years of Barack Obama’s term.

I think it is appropriate to remember this quote from Joseph Goebbels:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

I don’t think this has ever been as true as it is today.

    Trump: Give up your nukes!
    Kim: What do you offer in return?
    Trump: What do you want?
    Kim: I want to keep my nukes.
    Trump: So … you’ll agree to give up your nukes if I let you keep your nukes ?
    Kim: I’ll throw in some fake remains to sweeten the pot.
    Trump: That sounds fair, but, I …
    Kim: AND, I’ll have my Heroic Ministry of Rectal Smoke Blowing write you a nice letter that you can pretend was actually from me.
    Trump:
    Kim:
    Trump: Put ‘er there, Buddy! You got yourself a nuclear agreement!”

    Trumpy Bear might as well call the moving company and take his chit back to ny trump tower of cockroaches. He will be more comfortable awaiting his demise there. The hundreds of charges and lawsuits will ultimately impeach and convict him. He could resign but he is probably too ignorant for that.

    “Rudy’s popularity plummeted during his second term, as allegations of excess overshadowed his achievements. I first interviewed him at the low point, in 1999, when the police shooting of an unarmed black man named Amadou Diallo had ignited the city and shaken his mayoralty. Rudy sat stone-faced in the living room of Gracie Mansion, summoning all the contrition he could muster.”
    “He had wanted to run for Senate against Hillary Clinton in 2000 — and did, for a while anyway, until he got prostate cancer and then decided to use a news conference to let his wife know he was leaving her for another woman. That was pretty much the end of that.”
    “Giuliani saw another window of opportunity, casting himself as a shameless apologist for his longtime friend Donald Trump. He hoped his unflinching loyalty would land him in the running for attorney general or secretary of state. It didn’t.”
    “He debased himself in 2016, defending Trump’s “Access Hollywood” tape when even Mike Pence was cowering under a desk.”
    “It’s pretty clear by now that Trump could have hired an appellate lawyer out of the Leavenworth library and he’d have had a more coherent defense than this.”

    So Trump is a bumbling fucking idiot of a President and his only excuse is fake news. Someone should ask him did 6 million Jews die at the hands of German henchmen led by another bumbling fucking idiot or was that fake news also.

    ““Some groups who claim to support conservatives forgo their commitment when they decide their business interests are more important than those of the country or Party,” she wrote before adding, “This is unacceptable.”

    McDaniel also claimed that the RNC has long been suspicious of the brother’s political influence, including a database they maintain that has been used previously by Republican candidates to drive up donations in order to get elected.

    “From the beginning, the RNC had concerns about any outside entity building a data operation to compete with ours because we knew they could potentially weaponize that data against Republicans if their business interests conflicted with electing Republicans,” McDaniel writes. “Sadly, our concerns were recently proven true.””

    Why don’t they do us a favor and just report when he tells the truth, that way we would never have to listen to him.

    OT?
    “National Archives General Counsel Gary Stern said in a letter to Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will hold confirmation hearings, that although some records could be produced earlier, a complete review would be completed “by the end of October.”
