Donald Trump Tells a Lot of Lies –
But He’s Just Building on a Long Republican Tradition

Anti-choicers, creationists and climate-change denialists honed the lie-all-the-time strategy. Trump perfected it

Its an established fact: President Donald Trump is a shameless, relentless liar. He rarely makes it through a public appearance without uttering deliberate, outrageous falsehoods. Lies defined his campaign, creating a cottage industry of journalists listing and even cataloguing his lies. Now that hes in office, the relentless lying has continued and may have even increased, creating a real crisis for publications that want to keep track of them all, since the sheer volume of his lies tests the capacities of even the most well-funded news organizations.

.

Under the circumstances, its tempting to treat Trump as an anomaly and to view his mendacity as some sort of new development in conservative circles. But while Trump has introduced a new level of dishonesty into the world of White House communications, the grim reality is that his duplicity builds on years  decades, really  of movement conservatism honing lies as a major and, in some cases, central public relations tactic.

.

For journalists like myself who have covered the reproductive-rights struggle for a long time, Trumps bottomless ability to lie feels very familiar. The anti-choice movement is the vanguard of the conservative movement generally. Tactics that anti-choicers develop and hone tend to spread out through conservatism, and nowhere is this more evident than when it comes to the use of shameless lying as a tactic.

.

Whats remarkable about the anti-choice movement is that it lies about pretty much everything. Anti-choice activists have churned through a series of legal and rhetorical gambits over the years, and while the focus may change, one thing always stays the same: Their arguments are built on a foundation of lies  every time, without fail.

.

The recent attacks on Planned Parenthood, for instance, have been justified by the claim that the venerated health organization sells baby parts. This is a lie. In the recent Supreme Court case Whole Womens Health v. Hellerstedt, the state of Texas argued that many abortion restrictions were necessary to protect womens health. That was a lie, which the court saw right through. In the Hobby Lobby v. Burwell case challenging the Affordable Care Acts contraception coverage requirement, the anti-choice side argued that certain forms of birth control work not by preventing but by terminating pregnancies. Thats a lie.

.

Unfortunately this kind of relentless lying can be highly effective. Its impossible to argue with someone who wont concede even basic facts, making any attempt at reasoned discourse fall apart. Reactionary arguments perform better when the plane of discourse is all feelings and stereotypes, and lying is the best way to make sure their supporters dont feel the tempting pull of reality-based thinking.

.

Thats why the popularity of outright lying as a tactic is spreading all over the right. Unsurprisingly it started spreading in religious right circles. As with the anti-choice movement, the opposition to LGBT rights has been based on a series of lies, from the claim that marriage of same-sex couples somehow threatens those of straight couples to the current baseless hysteria about trans people using bathrooms.
