he Washington Post is out with an updated count of President Trump’s false and misleading statements since Inauguration Day. And it shows that Trump has surpassed the 10,000 mark. It’s a milestone, but not a cause for celebration. Whatever the opposite of popping champagne is, do that, I guess?
“The president continues to say false or misleading statements at an unbelievable pace,” The Post’s fact-checker-in-chief, Glenn Kessler, said on CNN’s “New Day” Monday morning.
“He hit 5,000 in September. Now here it is, seven months later, and he’s now hit 10,000,” Kessler said. “That’s an average of about 23 false or misleading claims a day in the last seven months.”
