Trump's Lies: The Top Ten

I'd love to what some of you think Trump's top ten lies are. Just a simple list of ten bullet points, one lie for each bullet.

No need to put them in any particular order. No need to tell us how often you think he lies or how many lies you think he's told. no need to tell us everything else about him that you don't like. No need to explain how hard it was for you to come up with a list of only ten because there were so many. No need to request for me to do it first.

Just ten bullet points, one lie for each. Can any of you do it?

ETA: Feel free to include the criterion by which you measured the top ten, but only if you feel like it.

I don't have a top ten. These are some right off the top of my head.

Quote:
Claimed to have watched thousands of muslims cheering as the WTC collapsed.
Claimed Obama was going to bring 250,000 Syrians into the USA.
African Americans are responsible for the majority of white Americans murdered.
Windmill noise causes cancer.
The Sharpie Map.
Voter fraud.
Mexico will pay for the wall.
No American soldiers injured in Iran rocket attack.
He claimed he knew covid-19 was a pandemic long before anyone else.
The Trump administration inherited an obsolete test for covid-19 from Obama.
I hope this doesn't trigger you like your conversation about Campos did.

Spectacular failures by all but Ranb.

What gives? No top ten lists? This is your golden opportunity to shine. It's the number one topic on ISf. Trump's lies are mentioned in every thread on every topic from scuba diving to perennial gardening, and now you're all getting apprehensive?

Another somewhat more timely quote.

Thanks. But why did you put them in a quote block? Were they from somewhere else? And why did you say you don't have a top ten, and then post a top ten? Do you mean to say that this top ten is only tentative, and eligible for revision?

It's definitely turning out that way. All you guys ever talk about is Trump lying, then when questioned you're suddenly all trying to change the topic or avoid the issue.

Apply google and your own criteria. Enjoy!

No idea what you're talking about here.
Translation:
1. You didn't make a list of 10.
2. You made a list of 10 but put them in a block quote.
3. No matter how much time you spend on my request I'm going to say it's bogus.

**** that noise.

I see your game.

Trump has swamped the world with such an unremitting gish gallop of lies that one can hardly think of where to begin. How do you choose from a menu of, what, 16,000+ demonstrable fibs? It's what gaslighting is designed to achieve. Hardly has one digested the latest several of the day when a new crop comes spewing forth.

But it sure AF does not mean that any hesitancy on the part of someone to construct your list of 10 off the cuff means Trumpy is in the clear.

It would almost be easier to list Trumps truths. But this is a 'LOL STUPID LIBTARD' thread.

Lets see:

Mexico will pay for the wall

Dancing muslims on 9/11

Do Nothing Democrats

Very Fine People

'I'm a stable Genius'

Blaming Obama for the lack of test kits

China to blame for the pandemic in the USA

'Most healthy president'

He knew about the Pandemic before there was one

Impeachment hoax or coup

Jesus. There's no game. Sure, I think most of you are idiots, but you should be able to rattle something off. Especially since that's all you've been going on about for the past four years. Who cares about 16K+ demonstrable fibs (which is BS anyways), give me ten juicy full-on lies.

This is the Kayleigh McEnany paradigm of lying about how Trump never lies. Indeed, **** that noise. Nearly four years of bull **** leaves a great big smelly pile; it's unmistakable, and not to be confused with a bed of roses. The OP is fooling no one here, save perhaps himself.

His biggest lie is that weaved, comb-forward mange-mat he calls hair; runner up is the Chernobyl-orange air-brush spackle he hopes no one will notice but everyone (save sycophants) does.

Probably the best list so far, although you gave twelve instead of ten. If that wasn't bad enough, you offered to give even more after your poker game. C'mon; that's what they call it a top ten. It's up to you to narrow it down. Still, I appreciate the response.

Enjoy the game, and remember my favorite rule about Poker: if you look around the poker table and don't see a patsy, you're the patsy.

Why would I need to narrow it down for you? You just simply asked for a list.

I doubt this is top ten. Just the first ten I could think of.
  • Mexico would pay for the wall
  • Covid 19 is a hoax
  • I'll release my tax returns
  • I'll come up with something far better than Obamacare and no one will be uninsured
  • Trump did not freeze aid to Ukraine.
  • Trump said European countries provided no aid to Ukraine
  • Trump lied about why he fired Comey
  • Trump lied about his affair with Stormy Daniels
  • Trump lied about Putin and Russia
  • He lied about the potential Trump tower project in Moscow.

I think that is 10. I'm sure there are many that are far worse or is it better? Latest count of Trump lies are well over 15 thousand. How about today alone when he said Obama was guilty of crimes and couldn't say one.

Sounds to me like you want to deemphasize the scope of Trump's lying, namely that he practically never tells the Truth.

So we get to post our views and sir-drinks-a-lot gets to try to lord over the thread while picking and choosing what he wants to attack without ever needing to present his own views? Sure. Sounds great to me.

Top Ten? Hell, who can whittle it down to ten? With the WAPO listing....what is it now...oh, yes...18,000 lies or misleading claims since taking office that's a Herculean task.

But, I'll give it a go although these are just off the top of my head. i did google them to get the quote accurately:

1. I'm a stable genius.
2. I created the best economy in the history of the world.
3. Anyone who wants a test can get a test.
4. When somebody is president of the United States, the authority is total. The
governors know that.
5. The server, they say Ukraine has it. They say a lot of it started with Ukraine.
6. The whistleblower gave a false account.
7. It’s going to disappear. One day it’s like a miracle—it will disappear.
8. The cupboard was bare. The other administration, the last administration, left us
nothing,. We didn't have ventilators. We didn't have medical equipment. The tests
were broken — you saw that. We had broken tests. They left us nothing. We've
taken it and we've built an incredible stockpile, a stockpile like we've never had
before.
9. Nobody knew there would be a pandemic or epidemic of this proportion. Nobody has
ever seen anything like this before.
10. In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if
you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally

Who cares which lies I identify as top 10? You don't care and I doubt anyone else does either.

On the other hand, I'm willing to bet that you are unable to locate 5 continuous minutes of Trump speaking, sans teleprompter, without telling at least one whopper.

For those who have already posted lists... "I'm a very stable genius" is a poor choice. It's probable the imbecile actually believes that.

I think "NO COLLUSION!!" ranks up there among the top 10. Of course, given there's 18 000+ to choose from, compiling a Top 10 list will be nearly impossible.

Enjoy the game, and remember my favorite rule about Poker: if you look around the poker table and don't see a patsy, you're the patsy.
Wow, you definitely need a therapy.

What gives? No top ten lists? This is your golden opportunity to shine. It's the number one topic on ISf. Trump's lies are mentioned in every thread on every topic from scuba diving to perennial gardening, and now you're all getting apprehensive?


I know I'm just a stupid commie libtard cuck (etc.), but I'm not sure if I see your point. Are you trying to imply Trump doesn't lie? That he's lied fewer than 10 times? That we don't really care about his lies if we can't list 10 of them off the top of our heads? What?

Who died and made you ringmaster?

You want to find out how the leader of the free world lies consistently and compulsively? You go find it yourself. You won't believe anyone here anyway. I have no idea why anyone would play your ******** game.

OP, if you genuenly believe Trump doesn't lie a lot (which I'm sure you don't), consult NYT's comprehensive list of his lies. /thread
