Four Weeks In

Number 22 of a series

La de da de da, indeed! Here is number 22:

22. Jan. 26, 2017 —Interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity

The claim (on companies creating jobs): “Here’s another thing with the media. ‘Oh, they would’ve done it anyway. They weren’t going to do it.’ You see, Jack Ma. He had no intention of doing it until I got elected. And he went down and he said, ‘I’m only going to do this because of Donald Trump.’ And nobody put that in the papers, which is OK.”

In fact: It is not exactly clear whether Ma made his proposal to “create one million” U.S. jobs as a direct result of Trump’s election, but Trump’s claim about media bias is false regardless: upon coming down the elevator at Trump Tower, Ma, the executive chairman of Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba, did not actually tell reporters that he had made the proposal “because of Donald Trump.” He said nothing of that sort at all.

It’s now another day and the third lie of the day by President Donald Trump. And he’s saying this on Fox News. If anybody knows how to spot a lie, these people at Fox should. How long am I going to keep this up? Until there is no skin left.
