Top 10 Biggest Liars in Politics

As any casual observer of the political arena knows, politicians and the truth have often shared a tumultuous relationship. Sometimes, this relationship is so stretched that one has to wonder where the facts end and the fiction begins.

In the swirling maelstrom of political discourse, where promises are made and speeches are given, it's not uncommon to encounter the occasional (or not-so-occasional) deviation from the truth. In fact, some political figures seem to have turned this practice into an art form, weaving narratives that often seem disconnected from reality. Whether it's embellishing their achievements, downplaying their missteps, making unfeasible promises, or engaging in outright deception, these characters have raised eyebrows and sparked debates across dinner tables and social media platforms alike.

But who among these are the biggest culprits? Who has strayed furthest from the path of honesty and integrity?
The Top Ten
1 Narendra Modi Narendra Modi, in his campaigns, asserted that India was a global laughingstock before his term - a claim widely debunked as India has always had a significant role in international affairs. He made claims about building 100 smart cities across India by 2022, a promise that is far from being fulfilled. Another claim that the Indian public found deceiving was his assurance to create 20 million jobs a year if elected - a target that has not been met.

He has promised a lot but delivered only a fraction of what he promised. He regularly renames the previous government's projects and tries to claim them as his own. As a result, the net gain for the country is minuscule.

Every time he speaks, we always have to check the facts as he injects a few lies into every speech. He is also the only Prime Minister who previously instigated riots against minorities and used the state police to distort facts and suppress evidence.

As a Prime Minister, he regularly gets journalists and opposition party members arrested on false charges and fabricated evidence. He uses his lapdog media companies to spread fake news and hide his government's mistakes.

He is a curse that India needs to discard immediately.

2 Richard Nixon Richard Nixon famously declared, "I am not a crook," in reference to the Watergate scandal, a claim that was later proven false with his resignation under threat of impeachment. He also promised an end to the Vietnam War during his election campaign but secretly expanded the war into Cambodia. Additionally, he claimed the US was winning the War on Drugs, a debatable point given the ongoing drug crisis.

It turns out Richard "I am not a crook" Nixon was actually a crook. Not much different than most politicians, but he had the bad luck of getting caught, which makes him stand out in the eyes of the public.

3 Donald Trump Donald Trump made several controversial assertions during his term as US President. He repeatedly claimed that the wall on the US-Mexico border was being built and paid for by Mexico, which was untrue. His declaration that he had the largest inauguration crowd in history was debunked by photos showing larger crowds at previous inaugurations. Another contentious statement was his claim that the US had "passed the peak" of the COVID-19 pandemic in April 2020, a statement contradicted by the subsequent devastating surge of the virus.

The biggest liar in the history of politics - Donald Trump. This guy is a clown. He's running for president and spends most of his time in a courtroom. When one trial is over, another begins.

It's not a "political witch hunt" or a "fraud" or "fake news". The facts are that this idiot has been allowed to run over people all of his life due to his financial stature. He disrespects everyone and even the ones he "likes", he only treats right when it's convenient or beneficial for him.

I get tired of all these incompetent people on Fox News and other outlets that always find an excuse for him or try to downplay his court cases. They are symbolic of him - defiant, irresponsible, racist, and immature people who point their fingers at everyone else.

The guy needs to take a long, hard look in the mirror and realize what I've known for a long time...he's a terrible person. He's unfit, unprofessional, and unhinged. This guy has mental issues. He should never be president again. He is out for "revenge" and that is his main priority (outside of trying to stay out of jail). He does not care about the people of this country. Never has...

4 Bill Clinton Bill Clinton, in the midst of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, declared on national television, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman," a claim he later admitted was untrue. He also stated that he "did not inhale" when he tried marijuana in his youth, a comment that was met with skepticism. Additionally, his assertion that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) would create a significant number of jobs was questioned when job growth did not meet expectations.

I did not have sexual relations with.

No better than his wife. Scum of the earth.

5 George W. Bush George W. Bush, during his presidency, stated that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, a claim that led to the Iraq War and was later proven incorrect. He also insisted that his tax cuts would not lead to budget deficits, yet the national debt grew significantly during his tenure. Additionally, he claimed his No Child Left Behind Act was a huge success, though many educational experts argue it had mixed results at best.

The Bush legacy is hopefully dying, as many are becoming wary of the global elite agenda and the stupidity and lies of this one in particular.

Lied about Iraq WMD. Led a fire which has still not been tamed in the Middle East.

Fool me once. The point is, you can't get fooled again.

6 Dick Cheney Dick Cheney infamously stated that the U.S. would be greeted as liberators in Iraq, a prediction that was far from the reality. His assertion that Guantanamo detainees were "the worst of the worst" has been contradicted by subsequent releases and exoneration of several detainees. Moreover, his insistence on the connection between Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda was later debunked.

There's a reason they call him "Dick".

7 Kellyanne Conway Kellyanne Conway referred to a non-existent "Bowling Green massacre" to justify a travel ban imposed by the Trump administration. She also claimed that Trump never mocked a disabled reporter, despite video evidence to the contrary. Furthermore, she insisted that Michael Flynn enjoyed the full confidence of the president hours before he was fired.
8 Amit Shah Amit Shah claimed that the state of Uttar Pradesh, India, is now riot-free, a statement that has been contradicted by several instances of communal violence. He also insisted that Article 370 of the Indian Constitution was a roadblock to the development of Jammu and Kashmir, despite data showing that the region was doing better than several other states on development parameters. He further stated that the opposition had no leader, which was misleading considering the presence of several prominent opposition figures.

The dream boy of Modi, who carries out all his secret operations. He is cruel, irresponsible, illogical, and ill-tempered, charged with the Investigation Administration of this huge country.

He's the most dangerous individual on earth. He spreads lies for Modi and promotes hatred and violence in various parts of India.

Criminal turned politician, he killed a judge who was appointed to a case of fake encounter which he arranged and was found guilty. He is the right hand of Mr. Modi and handles all types of criminal activities for Modi.

9 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler, during his rise to power, alleged that Germany was stabbed in the back by its own leaders in World War I, a claim that historians widely dismiss. He frequently declared that Germany was under threat from international Jewry, a paranoid and racist lie that led to the horrors of the Holocaust. His assertion that the annexation of Austria and Czechoslovakia was a defensive move rather than expansionist aggression was another falsehood that played a major role in the lead up to World War II.

He was the biggest liar in German politics, who knew he'd begin a mass genocide.

10 Vladimir Putin Vladimir Putin has made several questionable statements, one being his constant denial of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections despite substantial evidence to the contrary. He's also claimed that there are no Russian troops in Ukraine, despite clear indications of their presence. Furthermore, his assertion that the Russian economy is stable and growing is contradicted by numerous reports highlighting economic stagnation.

He says he's not doing things that everyone in the world knows he is actually doing. He continues lying about the reasons and the consequences of the genocide he's currently perpetrating in Ukraine.

His net worth is estimated to be between 40 and 100 billion, despite having worked a government job his entire life.

The Contenders
11 Joe Biden Joe Biden, during his 2020 presidential campaign, claimed that he was arrested while trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison in the 1970s, a statement he later retracted. He also insisted that he opposed the Iraq War from the very beginning, a claim contradicted by his initial vote in favor of it. Furthermore, he stated that 150 million Americans had been killed by gun violence since 2007, an incorrect figure that he corrected later.

Life-long liar, plagiarizer, dumb and delusional. Also, likely the most corrupt politician in American history. He's creepy, mean, and disrespectful, now senile and too frail to hold office.

Almost every word out of his mouth is a lie or some form of half-truth.

His handlers write the greatest lies. Unfortunately, he has no idea.

12 Benjamin Netanyahu Benjamin Netanyahu repeatedly asserted Iran was close to making a nuclear bomb, despite contradicting assessments from his own intelligence services. He also made a controversial claim that a Palestinian leader had convinced Hitler to conduct the Holocaust, a historical distortion rejected by historians. Furthermore, he promised to annex parts of the West Bank during his election campaign, a promise he later suspended.
13 Joseph Stalin Joseph Stalin manipulated information massively, including altering photos to erase people he declared enemies of the state. He claimed that the USSR was a true democracy, even though he suppressed political opposition and ruled dictatorially. Additionally, he denied the occurrence of the Holodomor, a man-made famine in Ukraine, despite evidence to the contrary.
14 Sukhbir Singh Badal Sukhbir Singh Badal, during his tenure as the Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab, India, asserted that Punjab was the most prosperous state in India, a claim that contradicted data on high unemployment and debt in the state. He also made claims about significantly improving the state's infrastructure, despite numerous reports indicating otherwise. Moreover, he often asserted that the drug problem in Punjab was being blown out of proportion, a statement contradicted by various studies showing a severe drug crisis in the state.

This man and his family are responsible for the drug addiction of youth in Punjab State, India. They have secret support from drug mafias.

He is the son of the Chief Minister of Punjab, India. The biggest liar of all time in history.

Father and son both are scoundrels and will have to pay.

15 Mitch McConnell Mitch McConnell, in defense of his decision to block the appointment of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, claimed that it had been standard practice not to fill vacancies in a presidential election year for over 80 years, a statement that was contradicted by several historical examples. He also falsely claimed that every Senate Republican had always supported pre-existing condition protections, despite voting records showing otherwise. Furthermore, he stated that tax cuts pay for themselves, a claim widely debunked by economists.

SuperMitch jumped in bed with the Chinese and became a wealthy man.

16 Joseph Goebbels Joseph Goebbels, as Hitler's propaganda minister, spread numerous falsehoods, including the claim that Jews were the enemy of the German people, which fueled anti-Semitic sentiment and actions. He also propagated the "stab in the back" myth, claiming Germany only lost World War I due to internal treachery. Additionally, he perpetuated the lie of Aryan racial superiority, central to Nazi ideology.
17 Sarah Palin Sarah Palin, in her run for Vice President, claimed that she said "thanks, but no thanks" to Congress for the 'Bridge to Nowhere,' but she had initially supported the project. She also stated that Alaska produces nearly 20 percent of the U.S.'s domestic energy supply, a claim that was debunked as Alaska only accounted for about 3.5 percent. Another misstatement was her assertion that Russia could be seen from Alaska, an oversimplification of the geographical proximity.
18 Ted Cruz Ted Cruz claimed that the Iran nuclear deal would "facilitate and accelerate" Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon, a point disputed by experts and contradicting the purpose of the deal. He also suggested that the majority of violent criminals are Democrats, a claim without concrete evidence. Furthermore, he stated Obamacare would be the nation's "biggest job-killer," a prediction that didn't come true.

He's not nicknamed "Lying Ted" for nothing.

19 Mike Pence Mike Pence, while defending the Trump administration's record, stated that "President Trump and I have always supported coverage of pre-existing conditions," which contradicts numerous attempts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. He also claimed that ISIS had been defeated, a statement contradicted by continued ISIS attacks worldwide. Furthermore, he inaccurately stated that "more Americans are working today than ever before in the history of our country," a statement that didn't account for population growth.
20 Barack Obama Barack Obama famously promised, "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it," a pledge that did not hold true for all under the Affordable Care Act. He also stated that "Fast and Furious" began under President George W. Bush, when it actually began under his own administration. Moreover, he claimed that 90 percent of the budget deficit was due to President Bush's policies, a simplification of a more complex issue.

Division creator extraordinaire. Oh yes, he was also incompetent at governing but very capable of self-enrichment.

Way too divisive. Reckless spender. Flip-flops on too many issues.

And people voted for this liar to be president TWICE?!

21 Nancy Pelosi Nancy Pelosi made an erroneous claim that "Democrats have never lost a presidential election in the 20th century when voter turnout was high," overlooking the 1900, 1908, 1920, 1924, 1952, 1956, and 1984 elections. She also stated that 500 million Americans would lose their jobs every month until the economy improved, a statistical impossibility given the U.S. population. Additionally, she inaccurately stated that the wage stagnation was a result of the Trump administration policies, while it had been an ongoing issue for decades.

A typical lifetime politician who manages to become worth over 100 million on a government employee's salary. Well done, you corrupt person.

Nancy Let them eat ice cream Pelosi is simply one of the worst human beings on the planet. She deserves the same fate as Marie Antoinette.

Nothing to say about her except she is just plain evil.

22 Benigno Aquino III Benigno Aquino III, as President of the Philippines, often asserted that poverty levels had significantly decreased during his term, a claim that was inconsistent with data showing persistent poverty in many regions. He also claimed full responsibility for the Mamasapano incident but failed to acknowledge the operational errors, leading to public backlash. In addition, his administration touted the Philippines as the "Darling of Asia" in terms of economic growth, yet this did not translate to better living conditions for many Filipinos.
23 Nigel Farage Nigel Farage, a leading campaigner for Brexit, claimed that the UK sends £350 million a week to the EU, a figure debunked as it didn't account for the UK's rebate. He also suggested that areas with high immigration are experiencing a crime surge, a claim contradicted by crime data. Additionally, he insisted that the EU army was about to be formed, an overstatement of the EU's defense cooperation plans.

This man is a redneck maniac with no interest in truth or integrity. Unloved as a child and unliked as an adult, he had no soul, and the chip on his shoulder is of epic proportions. His party only ever had one elected member, yet his malevolent lies and dishonest ways have severely impacted the UK. He is a racist, xenophobic, fascist individual with no shame or dignity. He lies to live and lives to lie.

The lie "I am not a racist" is contradicted by him blaming foreigners for his personal troubles.

24 Ajit V. Pai Ajit V. Pai, during his tenure as FCC Chairman, claimed that the repeal of net neutrality would lead to more investment in broadband networks, a prediction not fully realized. He also insisted that the Restoring Internet Freedom Order would protect consumers, despite widespread concern about potential abuses by Internet Service Providers. Furthermore, he asserted that net neutrality rules slowed broadband deployment, a claim contradicted by FCC's own data.
25 Imran Khan Imran Khan, as Prime Minister of Pakistan, claimed his government planted a billion trees in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, a figure disputed by several reports. He also vowed to never go to the IMF for loans but later approved negotiations for a bailout. Furthermore, he promised a "new Pakistan" with accountability at its core, but critics argue that corruption and nepotism persist under his leadership.

A confused personality who changes his stance every day.

He is a liar and puppet Prime Minister.

Kept changing his statements.
