    Remember the old adage, "Don't believe anything you read or hear and only half of what you see." Seems especially appropriate when dealing with politicians.

    The liar -in-chief in the white house is more than a match for Trump. He's probably worse than both Clintons put together, although that's a stretch.

    Hillary's lies make Trump look like a choirboy.

    Obama and the Clintons are still the all-time champion liars. And factor in Democrats who say that the Latin word "fetus" does not mean "unborn child," and that sodomy is normal and natural and is marriage, not to mention "hands up; don't shoot" as the last words of the gentle giant Michael Brown who attempted to assault with deadly intent a policeman. And don't forget Russell Moore's false allegations, either.

    Obama's Laundry List of Lies!!

    Posted October 28, 2008


    "1.) Selma Got Me Born - LIAR, your parents felt safe enough to have you in 1961 - Selma had no effect on your birth, as Selma was in 1965. *hotair.com
    • 2.) Father Was A Goat Herder - LIAR, he was a privileged, well educated youth, who went on to work with the Kenyan Government.*
    http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message504435/pg1
    • 3.) Father Was A Proud Freedom Fighter - LIAR, he was part of one of the most corrupt and violent governments Kenya has ever had.*
    http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2008/01/obamas-oginga-o.html
    • 4.) My Family Has Strong Ties To African Freedom - LIAR, your cousin Raila Odinga has created mass violence in attempting to overturn a legitimate election in 2007, in Kenya. It is the first widespread violence in decades. *
    http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2008/01/obamas-oginga-o.html
    • 5.) My Grandmother Has Always Been A Christian - LIAR, she does her daily Salat prayers at 5am according to her own interviews. Not to mention, Christianity wouldn't allow her to have been one of 14 wives to 1 man. Source: According to NYTimes story of April of last year, Sarah Hussein Obama
    told the New York Times she is a devout Muslim. 6.) My Name is African Swahili - LIAR, your name is Arabic and ‘Baraka' (from which Barack came) means ‘blessed' in that language. Hussein is also Arabic and so is Obama. 7.) I Never Practiced Islam - LIAR, you practiced it daily at school, where you were registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years,until your wife made you change, so you could run for office. 8.) My School In Indonesia Was Christian - LIAR, you were registered as Muslim there and got in trouble in Koranic Studies for making faces (check your own book). 9.) I Was Fluent In Indonesian - LIAR, not one teacher says you could speak the language. 10.) Because I Lived In Indonesia, I Have More Foreign Experience - LIAR, you were there from the ages of 6 to 10, and couldn't even speak the language. What did you learn, how to study the Koran and watch cartoons.


    That's just the 1st 10. There are 66 others on this list. The killer is that it doesn't include his time in office. That number alone is astronomical.

    Just because other people lie, doesn't make it right for Trump to lie. His supporters either need to admit they are OK with supporting a habitual liar, or retract their support.

    FTR, Factually false claims and lying are not necessarily the same thing.

    Clinton said the other day that she did not take money from energy companies. That is a whopper. I think that those who are for Trump (there are none on this board) are fed up with political correctness and the lies of Obama and allow Trump to exaggerate. That seems to be the nature of populism.

    I'm glad to here that you don't support Trump. I don't support Trump, Obama, or Clinton. I think they are all liars.

    My point was that it doesn't make sense to try and excuse Trump's lies by showing that someone else lied. It would be the same if someone said "Osama Bin Laden murdered a bunch of people!" and someone else said "Well, Hitler killed a lot more!". Neither set of murders is acceptable and one isn't more palatable simply because someone else murdered more.

    Well, I agree and I like your post but I think that you have to take it with a grain of salt when a leftist Democrat calls Trump a liar. Is he a liar like Russell Moore, who heads up an SBC commission? Or is he a liar like Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, who compromised US security with his emails, long ago in the hands of the Russians and Chinese? Or is he just a riverboat gambler who pops off and doesn't know a lot about national issues? Or is he a leftist who says that the unborn child is not a human being and that sodomy is normal and natural?

    I didn't know Trump had anything to do with Burger King.

    In the famous (or is it infamous) words of Dr. Gregory House : "Everybody lies".

    Except God of course.
