As Donald Trump himself has pointed out, this whole first 100 days thing
is a "ridiculous standard" for measuring success. He's right, of course:
The hundred-day mark, which lands on Saturday, is premised on a
meaningless number that humans only care about because the base ten
counting system is rooted in the number of digits a primate has on its
hands (exhales).

.

His first 100 days as president would only be worth mentioning if Trump
had ever issued some kind of signed document that he referred to as "my
100-day action plan to Make America Great Again," featuring 60 measurable
promises, or if he had created a "First 100 Days" section on the White
House website, touting "bold action to restore prosperity, keep Americans
safe and secure, and hold government accountable." If he did those things,
trying to diminish the importance of his first 100 days would be
disingenuous at best, or dishonest at worst.

.

"Disingenuous at best, or dishonest at worst" is practically Trump's
motto, of course, right up there with "don't pay contractors" and "I did
try and fuck her. She was married."  For most of his public life, he's
been an unreliable source of informationin fact, he's actually been a
pretty reliable source of bad information about things with serious
consequences. For instance, when talking about his real estate seminar, he
said, "success. It's going to happen to you," but that school was actually
a scam. Then there was the time he claimed that an "'extremely credible
source' has called my office and told me that @BarackObama's birth
certificate is a fraud." But it wasn't. And this other time, he claimed
that on 9/11, he had "watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands
and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down,"
and that wasn't true either.

.

It's exasperating at times trying to hold Donald Trump to some sort of
standard of honesty when A) he doesn't seem to care, and B) he has adopted
the term "fake news" and weaponized it against organizations that
criticize him. Trump's fake news label occasionally gets slapped on
examples of bias or error that he's right to criticize. But usually Trump
just pulls the term out of his ass to escape from reality. So as part of
the continued effort to push back against that rhetorical slippage, here's
some of the actual fake news Trump has unleashed on the world during the
100 days he's been President.

[Five Lies by Donald Trump Discussed in This Article]


His inaugural crowd was the biggest ever

There was significant voter fraud during the election

Sinister liberal imposters have been infiltrating town halls in red
districts

People are being paid to protest Trump

Obama wiretapped Trump's Campaign

FBI director James Comey almost immediately asked the Justice Department
to refute Trump's accusation. So then Conway tried to backpedal away from
the whole idea of wiretappingthe surveillance state has many tools, she
said, including smart microwaves. Representative Adam Schiff, the top
Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, concluded that there'd been
no wiretap. Then Trump himself walked back the claim that there'd been a
wiretap, pointing out that "wires tapped" was in quotes in the tweet,
whatever that means. Then Spicer quoted Fox News talking head "Judge"
Andrew Napolitano, who said the surveillance was carried out by British
intelligence, but the British called that claim "utterly ridiculous."

.

Then Devin Nunes, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee received a
tip from a source that appears to have been the White House itself telling
him that the deep state had conducted surveillance on members of the Trump
transition team (though not his campaign) when they were communicating
with targets of surveillance overseas. But there's nothing startling about
that if you know how the US surveillance state works. "What would truly be
'startling,'" wrote Jon Schwarz of the Intercept, "would be if the US
intelligence apparatus hadn't picked up many Trump staffers speaking with
foreign targets of surveillance."

.

In other words, Trump's claim that "Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump
Tower just before the victory" was not true, or based on anything remotely
true.
