* Happened again when President Trump fired FBI director James Comey, and claimed that it was because of his publicly commenting on the FBI investigation into his opponent Hillary Clinton's private email server. [[note]]Comey announced just ''days'' before the election that, based on new evidence, he was re-opening the investgation. It turned out to be much ado about nothing, but turned many voters off Clinton, with many people including Clinton herself arguing that this lost her the election after the fact.[[/note]] Not only had Comey's actions helped Trump win, but Trump had previously praised him multiple times for making that decision. When the White House claimed that that was the reason he was fired, absolutely ''nobody'' believed them. They quickly came up with other excuses.

* "Roderick" the gargoyle in ''WebVideo/JourneyQuest'' speaks in literally nothing but Blatant Lies. This is [[JustifiedTrope because]] he was one half of a KnightsAndKnaves puzzle. [[LordErrorProne Glorion]] the warrior killed his truthful counterpart before even realizing that it ''was'' a logic puzzle, then dragged Roderick with him as an [[TheDragAlong unwilling sidekick]]. For the rest of the series, Glorion never catches on that Roderick only speaks in lies, though they are so blatant that most other characters get it right away. Sometimes this endangers both their lives, when Roderick tries to encode earnest warnings but Glorion fails to comprehend. Mostly, Roderick just exploits his curse to hurl sarcastic insults, which Glorion interprets as flattery.

*** Happens in the United States. General Michael Flynn was given the "full confidence" treatment by many Trump Administration officicals in the press. Less than 24 hours later, he was out of a job. While there was a big deal about how blatant the lie was, it was pointed out that this isn't the first time such a series of events happened (just a speedier time) and that when the President says he has "full confidence" in someone, most press officials cynically add "will turn in his resignation in due time" to the end of the sentence.

-->'''Mercenary Cheerleader 2:''' Okay then, we're gonna go home. We're totally not gonna attack your friend and carry out the mission on our own.\\
'''Mackenzie:''' It sounds like you're being sarcastic. Are you being sarcastic?\\
'''Mercenary Cheerleader 2:''' What? No! We're totally just gonna head home, and not take that video.\\
'''Mackenzie:''' It sounds like you're doing that thing, you know, where you say you're not gonna do something even though it's painfully clear that you're still going to do it.\\
'''Mercenary Cheerleader 2:''' Whaaaaat? No, no that's my English accent. We're gonna head home, not attack anyone, and we're totally not gonna steal that videotape. You have my word. ''(hangs up)''\\
'''Mercenary Cheerleader 1:''' So... the mission's off?\\
'''Mercenary Cheerleader 2:''' No, believe it or not, I was being sarcastic.

* When [=NBCUniversal=] pulled out of their partnership with Nelvana over the [=KidsCo=] network in Asia and Europe, they claimed the reason was "growing challenges in the international children's television industry", which is an outright blatant lie, as western animation does still have a very strong market in Asia and Europe. The real reason was buried in the next sentence of their press release - they have just bought over the Sprout network from PBS and intend to focus on that network, which only caters to the United States, instead.
