Four Weeks In

Number 7 of a series

It’s amazing what a new President can accomplish during the first four weeks in office. So many lies, so little time. I’m posting one each day, and I’m not about to catch up. Daniel Dale with the Washington bureau of The Star compiled the list. I’m posting them in chronological order. Here’s number 7:

7. Jan. 25, 2017 — Interview with ABC’s David Muir

The claim: “In terms of a total audience including television and everything else that you have we had supposedly the biggest crowd in history. The audience watching the show. And I think you would even agree to that. They say I had the biggest crowd in the history of inaugural speeches.”

In fact: “They” can mean anyone, but no expert is declaring that Trump had the biggest inauguration crowd in history. Obama’s 2009 inauguration drew far more people in person and far more television viewers. Trump’s claim relies on the people who watched the inauguration on online streams. It is possible that these people gave him a record, but it is impossible to know for sure.

When he has no evidence, President Trump feels free to make stuff up. Hopefully he’s not going to be doing this about the intentions of a foreign enemy.

This is seven so far, but we are well past inaugural day and running. Do you feel comfortable yet?
