    Fact-Checking Trump's SOTU Address

    This address was a doozy, even for Trump, who is notoriously truth-challenged:

    Then there was Trump's challenge to the House to pass a "drug price lowering bill." They already did:

    How dumb can you get?

    Take a few:

    Trump claimed the new trade agreement with Canada and Mexico “will create nearly 100,000 … auto jobs.” But an independent federal commission puts the job gains at 28,000 over five years.
    Differing in future prediction doesn't mean Trump is wrong or truth-challenged.

    The president boasted that “a long, tall, and very powerful wall is being built” along the southern border, and more than 100 miles have been completed. But only one mile is located where no barriers previously existed.
    He's replacing previous barriers with a long wall, so again no falsehood here.

    Trump said “illegal crossings” at the southwest border “are down 75% since May.” But total apprehensions in 2019 were 81% higher than in 2016, the year before Trump took office.
    75% since May has nothing to do with 2016. There's no falsehood here.

    Really, how dumb can TDS make you?
    . Bloomberg, by comparison, may be the candidate that most of the Founders hoped would arise: a wealthy patrician, much like them, who would use his vast resources and influence to defeat what he views as disruptive elements in the nation’s political system.

    You're right, Jim -- Trump is a liar --- focus only on what he SAYS, and pay no attention to what he DOES.

    Yay, more fact checking along the lines of "burgers stacked a mile high".

    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    I was reading an interesting article on detection of manipulated digital pictures.

    It was sounding useful and credible.

    But at the end it suggested that we get our information from snopes and New York Times. The Babylon Bee could post this full article for a really good laugh.

    There's VIDEO of him telling that outrageous lie, and there are actual printed MAPS and other evidence to condemn him without any bias whatsoever!

    Yep. But the liberal fact checkers dismissed it as him just misspeaking and meaning "47" - how dare they? Everyone can tell what a bald-faced lie it was! Maybe I should start a web site dedicated to finding such lies that Obama told!

    Oh wait, there already is one!

    Misspeaking is not lying, words coming out of Trumps mouth is lying.

    Characterizing the lies trump tells almost continuously as 'misspeaking' is itself a lie.
    He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me."
