Uhm, this really isn't normal. And as you can see from the chart above, he's actually lying more often as time goes on.

With just 18 days before President Trump completes his first year as president, he is now on track to exceed 2,000 false or misleading claims, according to our database that analyzes, categorizes and tracks every suspect statement uttered by the president. As of Monday, the total stood at 1,950 claims in 347 days, or an average of 5.6 claims a day.

As Greg Sargent notes:
From his historic unpopularity to his unprecedented lying, Trump really is shattering all kinds of records, just as he says he is, except they aren’t the ones he claims.

He was right about one thing. He predicted that we'd get tired of all the "winning" and beg him to stop. We're begging.

Unfortunately he also promised that he would refuse.
