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 10:
10. Jan. 25, 2017 — Interview with ABC’s David Muir
The claim: With regard to his speech to the Central Intelligence Agency earlier in the week: “They showed the people applauding and screaming and they were all CIA. There was — somebody was asking [press secretary] Sean [Spicer] – ‘Well, were they Trump people that were put’ — we don’t have Trump people. They were CIA people.”
In fact: Most of the audience was indeed made up of CIA personnel, but Trump is wrong that there were no “Trump people.” Spicer told the press that “maybe 10” people in attendance were part of Trump’s entourage; CBS News reported that an official familiar with the event said Spicer was inaccurate, as Trump and his allies brought about 40 people.
Despite existing evidence, President Trump feels free to make stuff up. Readers, this is a guy who invents alternative facts out of thin air.
This is ten so far and only 70 left to go. However, we are well past inaugural day and running. If you are one of those who feel comfortable with this, then you are feeling more lonely by the day.
