The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trump's Lie Count Increases

Yesterday, the topic of Trump's alleged call from a Boy Scouts of America (BOA) official was part of the daily trump cast on cable news. Trump stated he received a call from the official in response to reporters on Politico of a "mixed" reaction to his less than professional and narcissistic speech at last week's Boy Scouts of America Jamboree.  


Trump apparently stated, he received a call in which the caller commented the speech was the greatest speech ever made at a Jamboree. Does the word "greatest" offer insight? On the 27th of July Scout President, Michael Surbaugh issued this statement: July 27 statement from Michael Surbaugh. After Trump's claim of a supportive call, the BOA issued this statement: "The Chief Scout Executive’s message to the Scouting community speaks for itself."
Honesty isn't a trait which is inherent in the Trumps.

Early morning newscast have yielded another report of Trump the Pinocchio in the Oval Office. During a recent cabinet meeting Trump stated immigration across the southern border is down. Rather than leave the statement at that point, Trump moved into that state of mind which seems to be at the forefront of his cognitive process; the ever-present lie. He went on to state the President of Mexico had given him a call with statements ("great job") in line with his lie. Well, you know how CNN reported on the alleged call.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto denies calling Trump with comments of "great job."



Trump also recently stated deep thoughts about garnering fact-checker "Pinocchios".  Apparently, he doesn't like being called out for lying.



If you are thinking, the rational person would avoid "Pinocchios' via changing the behavior to which the indicator is awarded (STOP LYING), understand one key point. Trump can not help himself. He is a pathological liar. It is physically and cognitively impossible to avoid a first thought lie from his mouth.



Another fact-checker, The Tampa Bay Times- POLITIFACT, maintains and updates a running review of Trump statements. We offer one of POLITIFACT'S latest graphics. From over 400 Trump statements only 20 were rated as "True"; 50 were rated as "Mostly True




Regardless of your political inclination and the prospect you are an avid, Trump supporter, the POLITIFACT graphic is an alarming shame. It clear shows a state of mind which favors the lie over honesty.
