CNN Fact-Checker Couldn’t Keep Up With Trump’s Rally Lies , CNN’s fact-checking reporter Daniel Dale on Wednesday night toiled .
To keep up with the number of lies and baseless claims made by President Donald Trump at his rally in Louisiana. “He is saying false/misleading/bizarre things in rapid succession, faster than I can type,” he tweeted at one point.
Dale ― who earlier this year noted a telltale sign Trump is about to lie is “if he tells a story in which someone calls him ‘sir,’” also debunked Trump’s incorrect statements on the Ukraine scandal, the impeachment inquiry and chain migration via his Twitter feed.

Trump is holding a rally in Louisiana. Quotes and fact checks in this thread. Trump pivots from Democrats’ alleged totalitarianism to asking people how their 401(k)s are doing. He says there’d be a depression if Democrats got elected.
He calls the Mueller investigation “the biggest lie ever foistered (sic) upon the American people.” “Crooked Hillary.” A Lock Her Up chant. Trump: “So is there any place that you would rather be than at a Trump rally on a beautiful, wonderful evening in Louisiana?
Trump bashes the media. “The CNN light is gonna go off,” he says. CNN’s cameras at these rallies do not have any visible lights turned on, I am told, and we don’t turn off any streams when he bashes us.
Trump is railing against the whistleblower, baselessly claiming the whistleblower “disappeared” as soon as he released the rough transcript. “A perfect phone call. A totally perfect phone call.” He says “anybody that can read…” He doesn’t finish the sentence.
Trump says the whistleblower’s source probably does not exist, which makes no sense. He is saying false/misleading/bizarre things in rapid succession, faster than I can type.
