Biden is the liar in this campaign

The NY Times has another article arguing that Pres. Trump lies:
The lies and obfuscations pile up. No, it wasn’t tear gas used to clear Lafayette Park for President Trump’s Bible-waving photo-op last Monday night, Attorney General William Barr said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. Rather it was “pepper balls,” he said. “Pepper spray is not a chemical irritant. It’s not chemical.” ...

As of May 29, the most honest man in America had uttered 19,127 false or misleading claims in his 1,226 days in office, according to Glenn Kessler of The [Washington] Post, who has been tracking them since Day 1. ...

Here’s the big deal. Mr. Trump’s lies are different. Not just in quantity, but also in quality. He lies for a different purpose than every other president
It goes on the explain that G.W. Bush lied to get America to fight a war in Iraq and waste $5 trillion.

But Trump's lies are different, because they are not intended to deceive anyone. The only lie mentioned in the article is the above description of pepper spray. The lie is just an attempt to use terms more precisely, while being completely transparent about what happened.

The same paper praises Joe Biden, saying he deserves to be President because of his expertise in delivering eulogies, as he has personally faced tradegy. It does not mention that Biden has a long history of lying about his wife's death, and many other things.

Trump is the most honest politician in my lifetime. He is open and straightforward about everything he does. Our previous lawyer President were always carefully choosing their words for political gain, but never telling us the straight truth. I am not sure Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden have ever been honest about anything.

But to the NY Times, Trump is the liar because his AG said that pepper balls were different from tear gas!
