I study liars. I’ve never seen one like President Trump. - The Washington Post
He tells far more lies, and far more cruel ones, than ordinary people do.
President Trump has made more than 1,318 false or misleading statements
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 Trump. His lies are both more frequent and more malicious than ordinary people’s. 
In research beginning in the mid-1990s, when I was a professor at the University of Virginia, my colleagues and I asked 77 college students and 70 people from the nearby community to keep diaries of all the lies they told every day for a week. They handed them in to us with no names attached. We calculated participants’ rates of lying and categorized each lie as either self-serving (told to advantage the liar or protect the liar from embarrassment, blame or other undesired outcomes) or kind (told to advantage, flatter or protect someone else).

"Here are some of the common negatives I hear in response to CoCs:

If you’re worried a CoC makes it look like something bad has happened: something bad has happened, something bad happens at literally every single tech event. Bad things happened at this Dagstuhl – maybe you didn’t see them, maybe you didn’t notice them, but they happened. Some are small, some are large, but trust me – writing a few rules down isn’t going to cast aspersions on the reputation of computer science. What it will do is begin to formalise and give shape to a vision of the future, where everyone feels safe.

If you’re worried a CoC isn’t needed because we’re okay: great! That’ll mean it doesn’t impact any of us, and still has all those other good side effects (welcoming newcomers, setting a standard for new members, being an example to other communities). But if you’re like me – a white heterosexual guy born speaking English – you’ll know that the world is full of situations that are harder for some people than others. Just because a place seems full of friends who understand each other, doesn’t mean there aren’t uncomfortable relationships and power dynamics at play.

If you’re worried a CoC might mean you have to have awkward conversations or makes you uncomfortable thinking about ways you might be messing up: well, yeah. I know, it sucks. But I can promise you this: if you try in good faith, people will help you, forgive you when you slip up, and you will feel better. A CoC is not an edict or a bounty notice. It’s a commitment we all make to getting better, together.

If you’re worried a CoC might mean you have to change, or put in extra work thinking about what you say, or not tell a joke sometimes: it absolutely will. And it’s absolutely right that it does so."
