The lies per word ratio also increased leading up to the midterm elections.

“But it was not only quantity. Trump packed his rally speeches with big new lies, repeatedly reciting wildly inaccurate claims about migrants, Democrats’ views on immigration and health care, and his own record. Unlike many of his lies, lots of these ones were written into the text of his speeches.”

Dale then added the featured topics of the President’s midterm lying spree.

Dale concluded his analysis stating:

“Trump is now up to 3,749 false claims for the first 661 days of his presidency, an average of 4.4 per day.”

People wondered if the President’s health might be deteriorating.

Others quibbled over semantics. They felt the Toronto Star and Daniel Dale should call Trump’s false claims “lies.”

Whether the President continues with his heightened level of false claims, or lies, now that the midterms are over remains to be seen. But Daniel Dale will be watching.
