This graphic is what all of us need to keep on hand to undermine the "Hillary is a liar" meme.

The idea that she is untrustworthy or "crooked" seems now to be baked in to people's opinions of Hillary Clinton.

However that is just the result of constant Right Wing attacks and media cowardice.

The facts simply do not back up that assertion.

So the next time that idiot on Facebook is typing in all caps that Hillary cannot be trusted, just post this in your response. Sure they're going to unfriend you but who needs that asshole in their life anyhow?

    While I see your point, look at how low we've set the bar. Even Clinton and Obama are telling the truth only half the time. Around 50% of the time they are saying something that is patently false or at best only half true.

      President Barack Obama IS NOT running for president this election cycle. He WILL NOT be on the ballot this fall.

      This is why I come here. For the potatoes.

    Please, put a link for the graphic, so it can be easily shared.

  3. It will casually be dismissed as a left leaning lie. Fox and the right have spent DECADES massaging the "Hillary is a lyin, crooked, murderer" mantra. It will take a VERY long time to change almost 1/2 the country's minds - even when looking at facts. We have to remember, that for most, it's not about facts or researching the truth. It's about FEELINGS.

      I did manage to have some small success with someone I've known for many years who is a staunch Republican and Trump supporter.

      She posted a story on Facebook yesterday about Trump selflessly sending his private plane to transport some soldiers who were stranded in 1991 after Desert Storm. Some versions of the story have them being flown from Saudia Arabia to the US, while others have them being flown from Camp Lejeune back to their home base in Miami.

      In any event, Trump had defaulted on a loan a year earlier and the bank had taken over his airline, making a deal with USAir to manage it until they bought it out a few years later. At the time of the story, the planes were contracted by the US military to transport troops but were no longer owned by Trump.

      I have commented on some of her posts before, pointing out facts to contradict false stories about Trump, and am surprised she has not yet blocked me. I always try to be polite and factual without condemnation, and provide links to my sources. While disappointed that the story of Trump's patriotic heroism turned out to be untrue, she accepted the correction without becoming angry or defensive.

      I'm sure that she will still vote for Trump, but I'm also hopeful that she, or some others reading her post, will become a little more skeptical of Trump stories that seem to good to be true!

    I posted a comment on FB about this and another fact check site along with this chart. My personal experience is that roughly 75% of people do not care what is true evidenced by not caring to check out facts. Maybe people are not skilled in researching facts or too busy.

    Trump is recognized around the world for his racism , bigotry and hate speech. Kellyanne Comway can not up spin Trump's earned and deserved reputation.

    If you do a basic search of how truthful and accurate Rachel Maddow thinks Politifact is, you might not want to use that chart to prove anything. Remember Rachael Maddow, the person Gryphen is always complimenting as his go-to-source for news? Anyone who watches her show on a regular basis has seen her repeated segments ripping apart Politifact as having their own "Pants on Fire."

    To the world, there is NOTHING greedy with accepting any amount of money in any circumstance.

    The only thing that is seemingly wrong is jacking a cost of medicine to make yourself wealthy.

    Wall Street isn't greedy. (dont confuse greed with a difference of opinion)

      You do know that Shkreli used to be in hedge funds, right? In fact, he's being indicted for using his price gouging of pharmaceuticals to cover his hedge fund losses to investors.

      Shkreli is now the EX-ceo, under indictment for securities fraud, trial set for July, 2017.

    I'd like to point out that Bernie Sanders if fourth with the very least "pants on fire" even compared to Obama and Clinton and the most "mostly true".

    His "mostly true" and "true" scores are more than Obama and very close to Clinton's.

    Just wanted to point that out.

    If they ranked them by only the mostly true and above Clinton would be first and Sanders would be second.

    But they ranked them with half truths and above.

    Sanders still ranks above Biden.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
