GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump can now add another bullet point to his lofty resume, which currently includes "boisterous rich dude," "that guy on 'The Apprentice'" and "forgettable character in 'Home Alone 2'": His campaign has won Politifact's 2015 Lie of the Year.
"PolitiFact has been documenting Trump’s statements on our Truth-O-Meter, where we’ve rated 76 percent of them Mostly False, False or Pants on Fire, out of 77 statements checked," the site reported. "No other politician has as many statements rated so far down on the dial."
This year, Trump has spewed so much egregious bullsh-t that Politifact couldn't just pick one lie as the winner -- "we have rolled them into one big trophy," the outlet noted.
Some of his worst lies this year included:
- His claim that he saw "thousands of people" cheering in New Jersey on 9/11. MTV News debunked the f---------------k out of this, BTW.
- His suggestion that the Mexican government is sending criminals to the United States.
- His completely inaccurate Tweet about race and crime.
I have to say -- Donald Trump, this one's an award well-deserved.
