Some of Donald J. Trump's greatest hits:

1. He saw Muslims celebrating on the rooftops in northern New Jersey on September 11, 2001.

2. Evidence that President Barack Obama might not have been born in the United States had been brought to his attention.

3. Three to five million people voted illegally in the 2016 election.

4. His inauguration crowd was the largest ever recorded.

5. Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign.

The 10 biggest lies in American political history:

10. President Bill Clinton (1998): "I did not have sexual relations with that woman."

09. Presidential candidate George H. W. Bush (1988): "Read my lips: no new taxes."

08. Presidential candidate Donald Trump (2016): "We're going to have insurance for everybody. There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can't pay for it, you don't get it. That's not going to happen with us."

07. President Ronald Reagan (1982): "[W]e did not—repeat, did not—trade weapons or anything else for hostages."

06. Former Confederate Vice President Alexander Stephens (1868): The Civil War "sprung from no attachment to slavery."

05. Vice President Dick Cheney (2002): "Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction."

04. President Lyndon B. Johnson (1964): "We are not about to send American boys nine or ten thousand miles away from home to do what Asian boys ought to be doing for themselves."

03. Senator Joseph McCarthy (1950): "I have here in my hand a list of 205 [people] that were known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping the policy of the State Department."

02. President Andrew Jackson (1830): "Toward the aborigines of the country no one can indulge a more friendly feeling than myself."

01. President Richard Nixon (1974): "I am not a crook."

I see it doesn't go farther than 2016.
I think there should be a 2017 section.
By itself, I'm sure it could fill easily 10 items, or more.

Donald Trump Is a Liar

Ok, you probably already knew that. But Bella DePaulo is a social scientist who has studied lying extensively, producing several books on the subject, like The Hows and Whys of Lies and Behind the Door of Deceit: Understanding the Biggest Liars in Our Lives. She has written a very interesting op-ed for the Washington Post in which she declares that she's never seen a liar anything like Donald Trump in her 20 years of studying the subject.

DePaulo's observation applies to both the quantity and the quality of Trump's lies. The quantity is well known; in his first year in office Trump has averaged about six lies a day, though recently that number has been closer to nine. And those are just his public lies; only his staff knows what happens when the cameras are off and the phone with Twitter is in the pocket. DePaulo says this is more lying than she's ever seen from anyone, in all the folks she's studied.

What is really, unusual, however, is the quality of the lies. Generally speaking, people tend to tell self-serving lies ("I wasn't speeding, officer!") about half the time, and they tend to tell kind lies, often called "little white lies," about a quarter of the time ("That shirt looks very nice on you!") That is a ratio of about 2 to 1. In Trump's case, however, he tends to tell self-serving lies about two-thirds of the time, and he tells kind lies about 10% of the time. That's a ratio of 6.5 to 1, which is the worst that DePaulo has ever seen. Even more unusual, however, is that most people are loath to tell cruel or mean lies ("Your wife is cheating on you!"); those tend to constitute only 1-2% of all lies for the average person. Not for Donald Trump, however, where fully 50% of his lies are meant to inflict harm on a person or group. Either he really does have a brain problem (see above), or else we now have statistical evidence that he's an unusually nasty person, or both.
