'Trump is not the 1st president to be caught in lies. But the degree to which he has trafficked in falsehoods is raising questions about whether standards for veracity have eroded.  What’s different today and what’s scarier today is these lies are pointed out, and there’s evidence that they’re wrong. but,  because of the attacks on the media, there are a %age of people in the country who are willing to say, ‘Maybe he is telling the truth.' The proliferation of television political talk shows have made it easier distort the truth.The glaring difference between Trump and his predecessors is the sheer magnitude of falsehoods and exaggerations; PolitiFact rates just 20 percent of the statements it reviewed as true, and a total of 69 percent either mostly false. That leaves scholars  to wonder whether Trump, has forever changed what Americans are willing to tolerate from their leaders.'
