How does Donald Trump get away with outrageous lies?

Donald lies a lot, but the lies are comically so outrageous and people still believe him.

He claimed he was helping fire fighters at ground zero on 9-11. He lied and claimed that his father was born in Germany but it's common knowledge he was born in New York. He lied about having an affair with a washed up porn star.

These are just a few examples of the thousands of lies that you can easily look up. Why do people not hold him accountable and instead use distraction and ad hominems when you bring it up?

Update:

Just look at the comments below, distractions and ad hominems. Why can't anyone answer this legitimate question?

    He gets away with it, because he is followed around by those who don't and won't call him out on it each and every time. He has lied so often and gotten away with it that he has no self-control anymore......exaggerations have turned into confabulations have turned into outright lies have turned into a compulsion to lie.

    So, you're upset over meaningless lies.

    Sounds like a rather shallow reaction.

      Lying over helping fire fighters at ground zero on 9-11 is not a meaningless lie.

    Your update answers WHY Trump gets away with his constant lies.. His followers constantly cover for him by using distraction and changing the subject to anything else instead of really answering for hus lies.   There is not answer, just excuses.

    He gets away with it for the same reason religious leaders and other dictators do. 

    They have a bunch of moronic, gullible followers willing to believe anything their leader tells them and even give them money because they actually hate their own freedom.

    The mainstream press still holds a lot of sway in directing public opinion.

    Right now the elites are scared that too much anti-Trumpism will drive a leftist populist wave that will overturn the current status quo.

    The elite are terrified tje "squad" will only continue to grow and become larger and more influential as time passes.

    In short, they we the writing on the Wall and their shltting bricks.
