Donald Trump Wins 2015 ‘Lie of the Year’

Donald Trump has been awarded Politifact's coveted "2015 Lie of the Year" award for his series of inaccurate statements relating to Mexican immigrants, Muslims cheering on 9/11, and racially biased statistics about crime. "It’s the trope on Trump: He’s authentic, a straight-talker, less scripted than traditional politicians. That’s because Donald Trump doesn’t let facts slow him down," the publication wrote.
