Ah, it's art, I see, I see.

It's a form of conceptual art, like Piero Manzoni's Merde d'Artiste.
It all begins to make sense, now.

A metaphor. And artists lie too. In fact, most people lie sometimes.

Of course, most politicians lie 12 to 15% of the time. Those are real, factual dishonesties. In comparison, Trump lies 60 to 70% of the time. So even among politicians, that's an important difference.

I generally go by those times when he's talking or Tweeting for my metric.

In fact, I'm lying right now.

Actually, that's a joke rather than a lie -- a different word game altogether.
