Manhattan Now Has The “Wall Of Lies” That Lists 20,000+ Of President Trump’s Lies And It Has Already Been Vandalized

On October 4th, around one month before the Presidential election, radio station Radio Free Brooklyn displayed a massive mural titled “Wall of Lies” outside Pine Box Rock Shop at 12 Grattan St. in Bushwick. The wall has been created to highlight more than 20,000 false or misleading claims by President Donald Trump since he has been in office. Apparently, all the quotes featured on this wall have been fact-checked by The Washington Post. Turns out, all of the President’s claims featured on the “Wall of Lies” are in chronological order and color-coded by categories.

According to The Washington Post, Donald Trump has made 20,055 false or misleading claims in 1,267 days

“Seen from a distance, it looks like chaos—perhaps an apt metaphor for this presidency, but when you step closer, you can read the individual lies, which are in chronological order color-coded by categories like coronavirus, Russia, immigration, the environment, and jobs. Then when you step back, you can recognize patterns in Trump’s lying,” Bushwick artist Phil Buehler, who suggested the display, told Bushwick Daily.

“The original idea of the project was for a radio marathon, 24/7 on-air reading of all of Trump’s lies on Radio Free Brooklyn for a full week before the election,” Radio Free Brooklyn Executive Director Tom Tenney told Bushwick Daily.

“It was just too good an idea not to happen somehow,” Buehler told Bushwick Daily. “Since I’ve been making large-scale panoramic photographs of political events, a gigantic mural of all the lies seemed the perfect match to Tom’s original idea.”

Sadly, on October 8th, the wall was vandalized and covered in graffiti by Trump supporters. “When we saw that the wall had been vandalized, my first reaction was rage,” Tenney told BK Reader. “But that was soon replaced with determination to not let bullies win, and we decided that we’d build another one, and make it even bigger.”

The new wall is 100 feet long—twice as big as the original one

After the original wall was vandalized, Radio Free Brooklyn jumped into action and set up a GoFundMe page to raise some money for a new wall. In two weeks, the radio raised over $4,000 and got the new wall installed at Lafayette and Grand Streets. Turns out, the new wall is twice as big as the original (100 feet long) and it also includes Black Lives Matter artworks by local artists.

Here’s what people on the internet think about this project

alright, i'm the first person here. i'm going to lay down some rules. people that are pro-trump: before you comment, CHILL THE F OUT. before you starting blaming things on liberals, radicals, lefties, etc. calm down and think when you write. when you just plaster your anger it makes it either hard to understand, or just really irritating. to everyone else who isn't pro-trump: when you see comments like those, don't downvote them to hell. don't try to correct them. listen. people on the internet are so quick to insult and judge. and if you have anything to say, say it nicely. don't call them names just because they don't match your beliefs. ............... well, anyways, that's my two-cents. peace

Thank you! I recently watched a documentary on social media on Netflix (the social divide) and it discussed how Conservatives and Democrats are becoming so divided thanks to the steady inflow of opinions on Social Media sites. Everyone refuses to even consider the "other side" and the U.S. in particular is more divided than ever. Spread love, y'all.

Wish there were pictures of the second wall. Also it's amazing how lacking in coherency his sentences are, many of them even with context would just be nonsensical word vomit sentences.

It amazes me that a man who supposedly got the best education, cannot even put a well thought out sentence together. He is either really dumb, or he’s doing this on purpose to reach his base, or both.

Yes, to all that. And I love when we're talking about trump, his followers can do nothing but try to deflect by saying "yeah, but look at what Biden did". We're not talking about Biden's lies right now. We're talking about trump's. If Biden has lied, and I'm sure he has, according to politifact.org, they all have. But trump has gone way over the top with the amount of lies, as evidenced by this wall. There's a vast difference from misspeaking, and the crap that trump spews.
