Without apparent irony Trump calls Clinton a "world class liar"

n a speech this week in which he called his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, a "world-class liar," Donald Trump lied.

Repeatedly.

We'd list all these lies, but our space here is limited. So, based on the level of absurdity, we've curated some of his greatest hits.

1) Trump claimed to be a self-made success, saying he started out "with a small loan and built a business worth over $10 billion." In fact, it was a princely $1 million loan from his father and an inherited company with property holdings all over New York City. Details.

2) He argued Clinton is weak on foreign policy, citing the Benghazi attack in which Ambassador Chris Stevens "was left helpless to die, as Hillary Clinton soundly slept in her bed." In fact, according to the 11-hour Benghazi hearing last year, Clinton "did not sleep all night." No matter. A "Trump fact" is one that makes the story better.

3) He repeated some of the same false claims he's been called out on before: That our trade deficit with China rose 40 percent during Clinton's time as Secretary of State (it was 12 percent), and that she will "virtually abolish the Second Amendment." Once again, he provides no evidence of either.

5) His most reckless whoppers by far, though, were about Muslims. First, he repeated an erroneous early report that the father of the Orlando shooter was a Taliban supporter, based on what CNN later found was a mistranslation of a YouTube video.
