It’s been a banner year for political whoppers — and for one teller of tall tales in particular: Donald Trump.
Here we’ve assembled, as we do every year at this time, a generous sampling of the most far-fetched, distorted or downright fallacious claims made during 2015.
In the article, FactCheck went through a litany of examples in which Trump has engaged in whoppers, ranging from claim to have watched on television as “thousands and thousands” of Muslims in New Jersey were “cheering” the fall of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, to his claim for credit for Ford moving a plant from Mexico to the United States.
Not that Trump is alone in the whopper world.
FactCheck also took issue with Hillary Clinton’s recent debate remark that ISIS had a Trump video it was using to recruit terrorists and her many email server statements.
FactCheck likewise has taken issue with many of the major candidates running for President of the United States.
