It’s no secret that Donald Trump likes to bend the truth and deny deny deny. During the debate last night Trump told some pretty bold lies. Hillary Clinton even had her website converted into a full on fact checker just to keep Trump on the up and up. Too bad that didn’t work and he just “Trumped up” the debate anyway. Below are some of the more blatant lies that he told on national television, prepare to roll your eyes.
Last night, Clinton said, “Donald says climate change is a hoax created by the Chinese.” To which Trump replied, “I did not, I do not say that.” He in fact did say that, multiple times.
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.

The weather has been so cold for so long that the global warming HOAXSTERS were forced to change the name to climate change to keep $ flow!

LESTER HOLT: Your two minutes have expired but I do want to follow up. Stop and Frisk was ruled unconstitutional in New York because it largely singled out black and Hispanic young men.
DONALD TRUMP: No, you’re wrong. It went before a judge who was a very against police judge.
According to Scott Horsley, a white house correspondent: Lester Holt is correct. Stop-and-frisk was ruled unconstitutional by a federal district judge. The city appealed, and after a change of mayor the case was settled before the appeal.
LESTER HOLT: Mr. Trump, Secretary Clinton became in the first woman nominated for president by a major party earlier this month. You said quote she doesn’t have a presidential look. She’s standing here right now. What you mean by that?
DONALD TRUMP: She doesn’t have the look. She don’t have the stamina. I said she doesn’t have the stamina. And I don’t believe she does have the stamina. To be president of this country you need tremendous stamina.
LESTER HOLT: The quote was, “I just don’t think she has a presidential look…”
HILLARY CLINTON: Well, one thing Lester, is you know, he tried to switch from looks to stamina but this is a man who is called women pigs, slobs, and dogs, and someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers
DONALD TRUMP: I never said that.
Here is a clip of Trump stating that pregnancy is an inconvenience for business: http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/trump-2004-pregnancy-inconvenience-employers-n580366
There are lots more where the facts were not stated correctly. NPR has posted a transcript of the debate where experts have fact checked the entire debate for both Trump and Clinton.
Stay informed and vote smart.
