Phil Buehler's earlier project was called the Wall of Lies which documented some 30,000 lies Donald Trump told while in office.

“We set up to do a live radio broadcast on the street as people came up to the wall. This old guy comes up, leans over, says ‘who’s in charge here?’ It was Chuck Schumer!
