CNN Fact-Checker Makes Blistering Conclusion About Donald Trump’s Dishonesty

“For fact-checkers, the period from Friday through Sunday was one of the most challenging of Trump’s entire presidency," said Daniel Dale.

CNN’s fact-checking reporter Daniel Dale showed how President Donald Trump’s “dishonesty is getting worse” in the final stretch of the 2020 election.

Dale noted in an article for the CNN website Monday that Trump made “at least 66 separate false and misleading claims” over the weekend at public events and rallies in Florida, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Nevada.

The president also repeated some of those 66 lies on multiple occasions, said Dale.

“For fact-checkers, the period from Friday through Sunday was one of the most challenging of Trump’s entire presidency,” he lamented.

Trump’s dozens of untruths featured the coronavirus pandemic, Democratic rival Joe Biden, the economy and his own record, said Dale.

And while the president’s penchant for lying is well known (The Washington Post in July reported that Trump had told a whopping 20,000 falsehoods during his time in office), Dale said Trump’s truth-defying weekend was “an egregious stretch for the President, no matter how much he was talking.”
