PolitiFact finds that only 1 percent of the things Donald Trump says are entirely true

February 19, 2016

Only 1 percent of the statements Donald Trump makes are true, according to the Pulitzer Prize-winning fact checking group PolitiFact. Updated as recently as Thursday, over half of Trump's statements were recorded as being lies.

PolitiFact uses six different categories to measure the truthfulness of statements, ranging from "true" to "mostly false" to "pants on fire." Trump's statements were 18 percent "mostly false," 39 percent "false," and 19 percent "pants on fire." President Obama, by comparison, only had 12 percent statements that were "mostly false" and "false" and 2 percent that were "pants on fire."

Alan: Politifact rated an Obama falsehood as "The Lie of The Year."

Of course, it raises the question of how PolitiFact is picking the statements to analyze. According to their website, "Every day, PolitiFact and PunditFact staffers look for statements that can be checked. We comb through speeches, news stories, press releases, campaign brochures, TV ads, Facebook postings and transcripts of TV and radio interviews. Because we can't possibly check all claims, we select the most newsworthy and significant ones."

PolitiFact lists a number of questions including, "Is the statement likely to be passed on and repeated by others?" In other words, the group is measuring the most significant and high-profile statements — so while Trump might tell the truth more than 1 percent of the time, he's certainly not doing so when it counts the most.

Donald Trump: Lying, Secrecy And The Widespread Presumption That He "Tells It Like It Is"

Alan: Those Americans who think Donald "tells it like is" are the very people most inclined to lie to themselves, people who have lied to themselves so long - and so completely -- that they have lost the ability to register Truth.

"There are two ways of lying, as there are two ways of deceiving customers. If the scale registers 15 ounces, you can say: "It's a pound." Your lie will remain relative to an invariable measure of the true. If customers check it, they can see that they are being robbed, and you know by how much you are robbing them: a truth remains as a judge between you. But if the demon induces you to tamper with the scale itself, it is the criterion of the true which is denatured, there is no longer any possible control. And little by little you will forget that you are cheating."
