Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, July 13, 2020

Fact Checker: As of July 9, the tally in our database stands at 20,055 claims in 1,267 days. Just as when Trump crossed the 10,000 threshold, an interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News helped Trump breach the 20,000 mark. Trump racked up 62 claims on July 9, about half of which came during the Hannity interview: Trump's statements cover a substantial range of his bogus attacks, conspiracy theories, boasts and inaccurate information.

The notion that Trump would exceed 20,000 claims before he finished his term appeared ludicrous when The Fact Checker started this project during the president's first 100 days in office. In that time, Trump averaged fewer than five claims a day, which would have added up to about 7,000 claims in a four-year presidential term. But the tsunami of untruths just keeps looming larger and larger.

The award-winning database website, created by graphics reporter Leslie Shapiro, has an extremely fast search engine that will quickly locate suspect statements the president has made. We encourage readers to explore it in detail.

Well at least we've finally identified something that Trump actually does lead the entire known world in; ------ lying.

He's Number 1!

He'll double this again before election day.

Their desperation has become palpable.

The radical left is out here lying about my tendency to exaggerate wildly and make up statistics that back up my outlandish claims.

They've got the nerve to call it lying.

Those damn liars.

The more desperate he gets the more lies he tells. That means Trump must be sweating bullets about now. 113 days to November 3rd. By the end of this month it will be in double digits.

Or will the DOW pass him on the way down in about 6-8 weeks?
