    Everyone knows by now that President Trump lies everyday about matters major and matters trivial. Some think he has a mental illness that causes him to lie. Others think his lies are well thought out and planned for his propaganda purposes. Either one, the guy can not be trusted or believed about anything. He has turned the Presidency into a entity to be mocked and made fun of. Amazingly, folks who complained about a President having a sexual affair in the White House because it showed a lack of character and respect for the office of the President seem perfectly alright about a guy lying everyday to the public and citizens about anything and everything. He even lies about things that are easy to prove almost immediately after he tells the lie. He lies about things people say, even when videos easily prove he is lying.

    So, why does Trump lie so much? Good politics or mental illness?

    Trump lies impulsively

    Even when he doesn’t have to. He seems to prefer his own version of alternative facts

    Trump lies because it works for him.

    There's a sucker born every minute, and Trump is their P.T. Barnum.

    He does not care. He has his own specific audience and those are the only ones he is interested in. Today it is about the 30%-40% of the population who make up the cult or lack the character to care.
