President Trump’s Lies, the Definitive List
There is simply no precedent for an American president to spend so much time telling untruths. Every president has shaded the truth or told occasional whoppers. No other president — of either party — has behaved as Trump is behaving. He is trying to create an atmosphere in which reality is irrelevant.

We have set a conservative standard, leaving out many dubious statements (like the claim that his travel ban is “similar” to Obama administration policy). Some people may still take issue with this standard, arguing that the president wasn't speaking literally. But we believe his long pattern of using untruths to serve his purposes, as a businessman and politician, means that his statements are not simply careless errors.

We are using the word “lie” deliberately. Not every falsehood is deliberate on Trump's part. But it would be the height of naïveté to imagine he is merely making honest mistakes. He is lying.

And then they went one better. The AfD Twitter megaphone, a densely interconnected clique of fake profiles linked to one specific faction in the party.

Größter AfD-Twitter-Account ist ein Scheinriese | DIGITAL PRESENT
This is some great stuff. Note the structurelessness of the spam cloud around @balleryna - bots are men without qualities, or at least with genuinely random ones, so this is what you'd expect - compared to the structure-y, scalefree, genuinely human 'kippers on the left.
