Does anyone still care about Trump's lies and inaccuracies

In case anyone still cares, the indefatigable Washington Post is still tracking Donald Trump's false and misleading statements and claims.
After 592 days in office, he is now up to 4,713 false or misleading claims, an average of about 8 a day. In fact, they are coming even thicker and faster than previously: in his first three months he averaged about 5 incorrect claims a day; in the last three months this has risen to over 15 a day. July 5th of this year holds the record, with a mind-boggling 79 false or misleading claims in one day, and August 30th came close with 73.
What is interesting is just how little I care any more. I think my outrage has all been used up, replaced by a kind of listless numbness. I know that's probably a bad thing, but what can you do in the face of such gross ignorance and denial?
