    If that had been used on Rahab, she wouldn't have scored as high as Slick Willie. But she ended up in the the Heroes of Faith list.

    I like their almost disclaimer: So, yes, Trump has been fact-checked 38 more times than Clinton. And, yes, PolitiFact was the one deciding what statements to fact check.

    Politifact has a huge left-wing bias. Politifact also applies a great deal of subjective evaluation in deciding how truthful a statement is. Trump's hyperbolic and free-form speaking style also gives his critics more excuses to ding is honesty.

    No rational person could believe that Hillary is any more honest than Trump.
