Trump erfindet soviel Unsinn, er kommt auf sagenhafte 1.16 Lügen pro Minute. ’Nen Lügenbeat kann man damit noch nicht passen, aber mehr als eine Pants on Fire pro Minute ist schon ’ne Bank: Donald Trump Made Up Stuff 71 Times In An Hour – And that’s counting the commercial breaks.

gop-2016-debate-trump6_600x400On Wednesday, The Huffington Post assigned five and a half reporters to look into a roughly 12,000-word transcript of Trump’s town hall event on CNN the night before. It took us hours, but in all, we found 71 separate instances in which Trump made a claim that was inaccurate, misleading or deeply questionable. That’s basically one falsehood every 169 words (counting the words uttered by moderator Anderson Cooper), or 1.16 falsehoods every minute (the town hall lasted an hour, including commercial breaks).

Below are our findings:
1. Claim: “[Ted Cruz]’s home state is Texas. It may be Canada.”
Reality: Canada is not a state and Ted Cruz, while born there, calls Texas home.

2. Claim: “I don’t know what touch means.” — Trump, in reference to his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski grabbing reporter Michelle Fields’ arm in an incident that has resulted in his arrest.
Reality: Trump knows what “touch” means. Everyone with a functioning brain knows what it means.

3. Claim: The security camera footage of the Lewandowski incident “exonerates him totally.”
Reality: It does not. It actually shows Lewandowski lied when he asserted that he didn’t know or remember Fields at all.
