Did Trump Make 8,158 False Claims (5.9/Day) In His First Two Years?

Though: even some of the examples the Post uses to illustrate its case are spun anti-Trumpward.
But: Suppose it were half that.
(Note: it's not half that; it's likely significantly more than half that.)
It's still bad.
Trump just doesn't have the proper regard for truth. He shouldn't be anywhere near the Oval Office. Contemporary journalism also doesn't have the proper regard for truth. But that's another problem; it doesn't offset the Trump problem.
What a mess we're in.
I'm as depressed as I've ever been about American politics--broadly construed so as to include the "culture war." I know that there was even more viciousness in the early national period, e.g. between Jefferson and Adams. But that doesn't provide much comfort.
