If the press would cease printing a story every time Donald Trump misrepresented a fact, he would not have any daily coverage.
And sadly, the media follows this same poor practice as well. As a result, the “Donald Trump Brand” is being promoted by the press and media, and they leave it up to the public to determine if the statement is factual or in error.
A recent example, to paraphrase Trump, “I am not going to be treated fairly in the first debate as Lester Holt is a Democrat.”
In fact, Holt is a registered Republican. Trump’s list of incorrect statements is endless.
Never miss a local story.
The Politico Fact Organization states that Trump is factually incorrect or “pants on fire” a total of 70 plus percent of the time.
It is difficult to comprehend anyone supporting Trump for the presidency knowing that he will potentially make his decisions or explain his decisions to the public with incorrect facts 70 percent of the time!
