Each December, the nonpartisan fact-checking website PolitiFact chooses the year's biggest falsehood. But in 2015, thanks to Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, they couldn't select just one claim worthy of being Lie of the Year. So instead, that honor went to all of Trump's campaign misstatements.

Of the 77 Trump claims PolitiFact has tackled so far, 76 percent of them have rated Mostly False, False, or Pants on Fire.
