Some excerpts from an article from a researcher on the depth and depravity of lies told by this current administration... which comes as no surprise to anyone who isn't blinded by an unhealthy sort of partisanship.
I Study Liars, And I've Never Seen One Like Trump
I spent the first two decades of my career as a social scientist studying
liars and their lies. I thought I had developed a sense of what to
expect from them. Then along came President Donald Trump. His lies are
both more frequent and more malicious than ordinary people's...
In Trump's first 298 days in office, however, he made 1,628
false or misleading claims or flip-flops, by The Post's tally.

about six per day, far higher than the average rate in our studies. And
of course, reporters have access to only a subset of Trump's false
statements — the ones he makes publicly — so unless he never stretches
the truth in private, his actual rate of lying is almost certainly
That rate has been accelerating. Starting in
early October, The Post's tracking showed that Trump told a remarkable
nine lies a day, outpacing even the biggest liars in our research.
But the flood of deceit isn't the most surprising finding about Trump...
Trump told 6.6 times as many self-serving lies as kind ones.
That's a much higher ratio than we found for our study participants,
who told about double the number of self-centered lies compared with
The most stunning way Trump's lies differed
from our participants', though, was in their cruelty. An astonishing 50
percent of Trump's lies were hurtful or disparaging...
By telling so many lies, and so many that are mean-spirited, Trump is
violating some of the most fundamental norms of human social interaction
and human decency...
Read the whole story...
Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this
defiles a person. For out of the heart come
what defile a person.
~Jesus, reading a laundry list of an average day in the Trump White House (with the possible exception of "murder...," so far as we know...)
