The First 100 Lies: The Trump Team’s Flurry Of Falsehoods

The president and his aides succeeded in reaching the mark in just 36 days.

To say that President Donald Trump has a casual relationship with the truth would be a gross understatement. He has repeatedly cited debunked conspiracy theories, pushed voter fraud myths, and embellished his record and accomplishments. The barrage of falsehoods has been so furious that journalists have taken to issuing instant fact-checks during press conferences and calling out false statements during cable news broadcasts.

All presidents lie, but lying so brazenly and so frequently about even silly factoids like his golf game has put Trump in his own category. His disregard for the truth is reflected in his top aides, who have inflated easily disproved figures like the attendance at his inauguration and even cited terror attacks that never happened.

The Huffington Post tracked the public remarks of Trump and his aides to compile a list of 100 incidents of egregious falsehoods. Still, it is likely the administration has made dozens of other misleading and exaggerated claims.

  1. White House press secretary Sean Spicer falsely claimed the crowd on the National Mall was “largest audience to ever witness an inauguration.” (Jan. 21)

  2. Trump falsely claimed that the crowd for his swearing-in stretched down the National Mall to the Washington Monument and totaled more than 1 million people. (Jan. 21)

  3. As Trump fondly recalled his Inauguration Day, he said it stopped raining “immediately” when he began his speech. A light rain continued to fall throughout the address. (Jan. 21)

Oscars 2017: Trump's Muslim ban takes hit


President Trump's effort to ban immigrants from some Muslim countries took its first big hit at the Oscars Sunday when an Iranian filmmaker who stayed home in protest won the award for best foreign film, The Salesman.

Asghar Farhadi sent a representative, engineer and astronaut Anousheh Ansari, to accept the award for him and to read a statement apologizing for not being there. Farhadi chose not to travel to the U.S. for the ceremony to protest a pending Trump order forbidding any Syrian refugees and a temporary ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries, including Iran.

"It is out of respect for the people of my country and the other six disrespected by the inhuman law that bans entry of immigrants to the United States," his statement read, to big applause.

It was the first strong, serious objection to Donald Trump declared at the Oscars so far, and it clearly was shared by most of the audience.

That was followed by Gael García Bernal, presenting the nominees for best animated feature film, who spoke out against "walls," like the one Trump intends to build at the 2,000-mile border with Mexico.

“Flesh and blood actors are migrants, we travel all over the world, we build families, we construct stories, we build life that cannot be divided," García Bernal said. "As a Mexican, as a Latin American, as a migrant worker, as a human being, I’m against any form of walls that wants to separate us.”  Again, major applause.

Up to then, anti-Trumpism was mostly jokey. Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel started out warning he was "not the man" to unite America. But there's good news for Hollywood, he said, and they can thank their least favorite POTUS for it.

"Remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist?" he snarked in that faux innocent Kimmel way.

It was subtle but his meaning was not lost on the glittery crowd. Then he got really specific: Don't be surprised, he said, if the Oscars ended up being trashed by Trump. "Some of you will win and give a speech that the president of the United States will tweet about in all caps during his 5 a.m. bowel movement."
