PolitiFact is the number one fact checking outlet regarding politics in the world. It was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting in 2009 & It is PolitiFact's job to fact check statements made by members of Congress, the White House, lobbyists, interest groups, etc... etc... Now I'm not saying PolitiFact is perfect, but they are one of the more reliable fact checking outlets available.

PolitiFact's findings are evaluated with a "Truth-O-Meter" rating system. The ratings range from "True" for completely accurate statements to "Pants on Fire" (From The Taunt "Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire") for false & ridiculous claims. Lately I have been hearing people talk about Republican front runner Donald Trump, who I believe is absolute scum. Donald Trump has had four bankruptcies in just the past eighteen years alone. Despite his ignorant, hateful, bigoted, racist, sexist, & fascist disgusting personality, & the fact that he can't run a business to save his life... Uneducated & misinformed people who don't follow current events or look into the issues tend to like the cover of Donald Trump even without reading what's inside.

Using "Report Card" data collected from PolitiFact I compared the fact checked statements Donald Trump has been making since he announced he is running for president against the Presidential Candidate Josh Hill Politics has endorsed, Bernie Sanders.
