Trump’s trade war: Does the U.S. have the ‘lowest tariffs in the world’?
But a chart on page 8 of that WTO report confirms that the U.S. tariffs, while low, are not the lowest in the world. Such broad categories obscure the fact that the United States maintains high tariffs on politically sensitive products, such as 131.8 percent on peanuts, 25 percent on light trucks, 16 percent on wool sweaters and 25 percent on tuna, not to mention 20 percent tariffs on various dairy products.

The picture changes if you use different data sources, such as the World Bank. For the simple mean average tariff rate for all products, the World Bank shows the United States behind not only Australia, but also Canada, Japan and many European countries.

The picture changes again when you look at weighted average tariffs, rather than just a simple average.

This measure, which many economists say is more accurate, weights each tariff by the share of total imports in that import category. As an example, a country would have a simple average tariff of 10 percent if the statutory tariff for wood was 5 percent, for shoes 10 percent, and cars 15 percent. But if that country imported a lot of wood, no shoes and no cars, the weighted average tariff would be 5 percent.

Under a weighted average, the United States does somewhat better than under the simple average in the World Bank data, but it is still not lower than Japan, Canada and Australia.

Colbert is excellent.   Bill Maher's take on Trump can be funny too though perhaps more partisan.  

I am not sure that any of these comedians are a thorn in Trump's side as they tend to get consumed by the already converted.    That said,  the catharsis is good for the converted.

A brilliant and hysterical bit. I'm amazed Colbert can keep doing these long segments about Trump on his show. Was this the opening monologue?

He lies so much he cannot keep track of them, and cannot tell the difference between truth and fiction.

How can anyone take pride or pleasure in lying so much? This guy is a freak. Have any of us ever encountered a person like Trump who cannot tell the truth for even a moderate period? 

 
I think much of his incessant lying is more to create "noise" and misdirection - similar to the way that military aircraft release hot-burning flares as countermeasures to distract heat-seeking missiles from homing in on their craft.  The more noise that's out there, the less attention is paid to his actual intentions and/or actions.
