So who’s the real liar?

Image result for trump liarTrump’s way of handling the heat is simple: deflect, and blame everything on everyone else. 

He is a master of pointing the finger and saying “look, they do it too!” The evidence couldn’t be more clear with how he accuses Hillary Clinton of everything — from pay-for-play, to corruption, to even murder.

And for some reason, the media lets him get away with it.

But luckily for us (and bad for Trump once the debates come around), Hillary Clinton isn’t letting him get away with anything.

Sick of the never ending accusations and silence by the media elites, Clinton listed on her website nine difference instances in which Trump accused her of doing something he actually does himself. 

From real pay-for-play to ties to Russia, Clinton proves that it really is Trump, and not her, that is the shady candidate.

Let’s take a look:

1. Trump says Clinton is a “bigot.” 
The truth: Trump is the one who has embraced the alt-right, comprised of white nationalists, xenophobes, and Islamophobes. Trump started his campaign off by accusing Mexicans of being rapists and drug mules. Trump refused to disavow David Duke for two whole weeks. So when Trump said “Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color, only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” he really invited people to look at his statements regarding people of color, women, ethnic minorities, etc.

2. Trump says Clinton “doesn’t talk about policy.” 
The truth: Clinton has “38—and counting—distinct, comprehensive policies on her website, not to mention the comprehensive fact sheets that go with them,” while Trump has nine (two of which deal with “the wall”), and Clinton has released a 238-page book outlining her extensive plans for America. Trump has not.

3. Trump says “ISIS is rooting” for Hillary. 
The truth: there’s only one candidate ISIS is rooting for, and that is Trump

4. Trump says Clinton has ties to Russian oligarchs. 
The truth: it was Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, who resigned in shame after being linked to a pro-Kremlin political party, and it’s Trump who has stated (multiple times) that Putin is a “great leader.” Trump’s son, Donald Jr., also admitted his father has business ties to Russia.

5. Trump says Clinton is “trigger happy.” 
The truth: look at Donald Trump’s twitter and the deplorable things he has said about anyone and anything.

6. Trump says Clinton doesn’t have the temperment to be president. 
The truth: 65 percent of Americans DO NOT think Trump has the temperament to be president, while 68 percent think Clinton DOES.

7. Trump says Clinton has a “policy of fear.” 
The truth: experts agree: Trump’s campaign is the campaign based on fear. Doom and gloom predictions of terrorism, gun violence, losing on the world stage, immigration and so forth has driven Trump’s campaign to where it’s at right now. Just look at the two campaign mottos: Clinton’s is “Stronger Together,” while Trump’s is “Make America Great Again.”

8. Trump says Clinton “lacks energy,” and has “low stamina.” 
The truth: Clinton traveled a total of 956,733 miles, and visited a record-setting 112 countries as SoS, sat through an 11 hour Benghazi testimony, and did over 6 events on the day she was diagnosed with pneumonia. Trump? He skipped a primary debate because he was scared of Megyn Kelly.

9. Trump says Clinton engaged in ‘Pay-for-Play.” 
The truth: Trump used his foundation to pay off Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (so she would drop the Trump University lawsuit), and is now under investigation in New York for illegal contributions.

So there you have it. 

While Trump continues to accuse Clinton of everything under the sun, he himself is actually the real culprit in all of these scenarios. But because he’s loud and entertaining and gets them good ratings, the media ignores the glaring contradictions and hypocrisy, and gives him a free pass.

Bottom line: Trump literally does everything he accuses Clinton of doing.

Once the debate season heats up, you’ll see Donald Trump be put in his rightful place.
