Trump has made statements about his penis. The veracity of these statements needs to be determined.
I would love to see a reliable news source on that subject, I could add it to the article. :D

FYI I picked the title because it was NPOV, although I realise the content isn't.
Oh, I see.
That history page is fun. 4,5K --> 70K in 5 short days.

It appears that ... the vast majority of the 4.5k character tokens you invested are still there, and, that... Bullrangifer quacked out half your article for you while you watched. :D

From the new lead:
Wikipedos wrote: Trump has made so many false or misleading statements that commentators and fact-checkers have described the rate of his falsehoods as unprecedented in politics.[1][2][3]
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... =868955385
Just a neutral description of the truth, like saying that the earth revolves around the sun. JzG must be so proud of you, Dysklyver.

Sadly the planned DYK saying he was "the king of whoppers" was prematurely cut short by nasty checkusers.

Why you little scamp. They actually let one of yours through after you were blocked. Really, the same reasoning they gave there could apply to the veracity article. You may have created the page and nominated it, but a lot of the contributions were by Rangifer. Granted, it still wouldn't be valid since it was mostly copied from his userspace essay.

It was explicitly stated that it could continue if someone else wanted to take over the responsibility, but there were no takers, admittedly hardly surprising. The amount of work needed to trim the excessive amount of quotations would be hard.

Obviously the article should be deleted, and the reason why it should be is exactly why it won't be.

It was G10 tagged twice with great care, and the taggers were duly told off for doing this. Like the "Racial views of Donald Trump", this is probably going to last a while.
