The Whoppers of 2015


FactCheck.org Director Eugene Kiely appeared on CBS’ “This Morning” to discuss our annual article on some of the biggest political whoppers of the year. For the first time in our 12 years, we conferred the title “King of Whoppers” on a single individual: businessman Donald Trump.

Trump wasn’t the only one telling whoppers, of course. But, as we wrote, Trump “stands out not only for the sheer number of his factually false claims, but also for his brazen refusals to admit error when proven wrong.” He dominated our annual article on political whoppers.

The CBS interview aired Dec. 30 and can be found here. It is based on our article “The ‘King of Whoppers’: Donald Trump.
