Trump's Time Magazine interview about truthfulness, minus all the lies

Time's cover-story about Donald Trump features a long interview with the president, in which he insists, over and over again, that he is not a liar. It is full of lies.

Jezebel's Ellie Shechet eliminated "everything that is not verifiably true" from the article, posting a redacted version that reveals an awful lot about the president's speech patterns as well as his moral turpitude. It's a neat tutorial on truth by verbosity (AKA the "Gish Gallop"), based on "drowning your opponent in a flood of individually-weak arguments in order to prevent rebuttal of the whole argument collection without great effort."
