More fact checking insanity. Politico said Trump was 'partly true' when he said one in every

three” illegal immigrants has been abused attempting to cross the border." Turns out, it's 31%, not 33.3%. Oh the Humanity.


It is almost surely the case that every past president and every politician has used “one-third” or “one-half” rather than a specific fraction and walked away without being fact-checked. Does that stop the MSM? Of course not.

1. Pretty typical

You see this over and over again.

Trump said he had a plate of burgers a mile high for the Clemson players, WAPO added it to their lie list.

4. It is desperation.

And it isn't working, instead the media is failing.

6. The fact checkers/rewriters also lied about the crime rate dropping in El Paso

It seems they compared the past crime rate to that of the crime rate from the time the wall was approved, not built. When looking at the crime rate since the wall was built one can see that it dropped 20%.

Fucking liars. Is it any wonder how dems win elections with so much misinformation out there? If people knew the truth the Democrat party would be non-existent.
