I study liars. I’ve never seen one like President Trump.
I don't usually include politics in the roundups, but this opinion piece covers a topic in our current "situation" that I've found morbidly fascinating. The rate and maliciousness with which Trump lies is historic. Not just for a president, but for a human. The internet makes it possible, but it also makes speedy fact-checking easier. So, break even? Not really.
