(Before It's News)

The New York Times fact-checked President Trump’s speech to Congress and identified just one flagrant falsehood: that the families of people murdered by unauthorized immigrants have been “ignored by our media.” The meager harvest of misrepresentations could mean Trump is getting better at sticking to a script or that he is gradually realizing his reputation for making shit up is not doing him any favors. Then again, maybe the Times is inured to the sort of blatant lies that all presidents tell. Here are some of the most obvious whoppers that the Times neglected to note:

  1. A new surge of optimism is placing impossible dreams firmly in our grasp.
  2. Dying industries will come roaring back to life.
  3. We will stop the drugs from pouring into the country.
  4. I am going to bring back millions of jobs.
  5. It will save countless dollars.
  6. Republicans and Democrats can work together to achieve an outcome that has eluded our country for decades.
  7. Action is not a choice; it is a necessity.
  8. Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed.
  9. Every problem can be solved.
  10. Every hurting family can find healing and hope.
  11. Our children will grow up in a nation of miracles.
  12. The time for trivial fights is behind us.
