Donald Trump has told so many howlers, Politifact couldn’t pick just one. So their Lie of the Year award for 2015 goes to the collected statements of the Trumpenstein.

PolitiFact has been documenting Trump’s statements on our Truth-O-Meter, where we’ve rated 76 percent of them Mostly False, False or Pants on Fire, out of 77 statements checked. No other politician has as many statements rated so far down on the dial.

In considering our annual Lie of the Year, we found our only real contenders were Trump’s — his various statements also led our Readers’ Poll. But it was hard to single one out from the others. So we have rolled them into one big trophy.

One of the many lies highlighted by Politifact is Trump’s re-tweet of fake statistics from a neo-Nazi, a connection first revealed by LGF.

It’s shameful that the Republican voting base simply doesn’t care about issues of basic honesty, but there it is.
