At this level, everyone knows that Trump is a mediocre particular person, born into nice energy and wealth, buoyed by our rigged techniques of inequality, and now failing on a worldwide stage. Everyone knows Trump is a liar and that his lies are seemingly so clear it’s mind-numbing to observe tens of millions of individuals proceed to indicate their assist for him. Daniel Dale has a great ability to really speak fast and thus perform the level of bullshit this present white supremacist in chief is shoveling out into the general public sphere any probability he will get.
DANIEL DALE: There was simply a lot mendacity, Don. I will go rapidly, so actually simply cease me if it’s good to. He mentioned, once more, Democrats will not shield folks with pre-existing situations. That’s nonsense, as a voter instructed him, Democrats created these protections. He insisted he did not reward China on the virus. He did so repeatedly. We all know that. He claimed no person knew on the time he was praising China that seniors have been particularly prone to the virus. That is one of many first issues we discovered out of China, Italy, and the U.S. He claimed Biden mentioned in March, that the pandemic was, “completely overexaggerated.” I can discover no proof Biden ever mentioned that. He mentioned Winston Churchill was type of like him enjoying down stuff as a result of he went on rooftops in London, through the Nazi bombing and instructed folks the whole lot goes to be good. Churchill didn’t converse from the rooftops and didn’t say the whole lot was going to be good, he warned of struggling and hazard.
Trump mentioned he fired James Mattis, Mattis resigned. He mentioned that protesters took over 20% of Seattle. It was a six block space, nowhere shut to twenty%. He took credit score once more, for sending within the Nationwide Guard in Minneapolis, saying that this occurred after every week and a half of violence there. It was not even near every week and a half. It was days and the Democratic governor is the one who activated the Guard. He mentioned he primarily repealed Obamacare by eliminating the person mandate. Not even near true with the Medicaid enlargement, pre-existing situations protections, different stuff stays.
He mentioned the cabinets have been empty of ventilators, his administration admits he inherited about 16,000 from Obama. He did his ordinary false-boast about so-called bans on journey from China and Europe. They weren’t full bans. He mentioned shares are owned by, quote, “everyone.” Nearly half of People personal shares. He repeated his nonsense about testing inflicting instances, testing merely reveals and helps battle instances. He mentioned that Biden has agreed to a Bernie Sanders fashion of socialized well being care. He fought Sanders on that concern. He has very a lot not agreed to a Sanders-style plan. And, Don, this can be a preliminary record. i’ve hours of fact-checking tonight to do as a result of there’s much more than this so this was only a firehose of mendacity, once more, from the president.
Dale subsequently debunks the right-wing speaking level lie that the enhance in capturing crime in New York Metropolis (Trump exaggerates the uptick by about 200%) is deceptive since although there have been extra violent capturing crimes in NYC this 12 months, the numbers are nonetheless means under the numbers in Giuliani’s final 12 months in workplace as mayor of New York.
Lemon asks Dale if he must take a sip of water after that two-minute tour de power.
