Presidents of the United States have gotten away with many lies in the faces of the people. They are successful due to a number of factors like a complicit press, a cover-up, or an apathetic and ignorant public. Following are a list of lies told by the last five presidents plus Nixon.

Rank these presidential lies from most serious as number one to least serious as number ten:

  • Watergate – bugging the DNC
