Liar isn't quite the accurate term
Reader comment on: Could Trump Be Good For Liberalism?

This phrase is a bit of a howler: "Trump's minor misstatements". While the thesis of this post is reasonably accurate, dismissing Trump's continuous stream of misstatements and contradictory statements as minor is far from accurate. The issue isn't necessarily that he consciously lies, but rather over his lifetime he has lost the normal human concern for making statements that are consistent with the real world. While he frequently says one thing in the morning and contradicts it later in the day or in the same speech, he then attacks, as partisan, anyone who points out the recorded contradictions. That is way beyond mere lying.
