According to The Washington Post’s Fact Checker database, twice-impeached Donald made 30,573 false or misleading claims during his presidency, so it’s little wonder that, according to Yahoo!, “there were ripples of laughter from his supporters” as he spoke of his honesty.

Speaking at a venue called The Farm, Trump opened his “Save America” rally by saying that there were 15,000, “maybe more” in the crowd, but according to this report, “there were about 1,000 to 2,000 people in attendance.”

Trump told those in the audience:

I’ve got to be the cleanest sheriff. I think I’m the most honest human being, perhaps, that God ever created. I’ve been investigated by the Democrats more than Billy the Kid, Jessie James, and Al Capone combined.

Newsweek adds that Trump told a story about an anonymous friend who supposedly told the former president how he had been squeaky clean during his administration.

Trump said that friend had told him he was “the cleanest on Earth” after multiple investigations, including two impeachments and the ongoing January 6 (2021) trials and investigations.

During his time as president, Trump also promoted 24 conspiracy theories,

Trump hosted a rally at the same venue in 2016, just before the November election, and nearly 15,000 attended then.
