Over Trump's tenure in office, few have gone as viral as CNN fact checker Daniel Dale.

Dale skyrocketed to fame for his succinct—often breathless—real time fact checks of outgoing President Donald Trump's thousands of lies.

He's left his colleagues speechless with the rapidity of his corrections and informed Americans with his research and knowledge to counter Trump's frequent falsehoods.

In the face of Trump's countless lies that widespread voter fraud coordinated by Democrats somehow tipped the 2020 election to President-elect Joe Biden, Dale has been working overtime.

And when Trump posted a video threatening to veto the COVID-19 relief bill passed by Congress after months of fruitless congressional negotiations, the President repeated these lies about the election and continued to float the fantasy that he'll serve another four years in the White House.

That's when Dale had enough.


Dale emphasized that it wasn't because he was "exhausted" or "broken," but that Trump's "repeated nonsense" isn't worth fact-checking as Trump leaves office. Not to mention, Trump repeats these lies so often that Dale has fact checked practically all of them before.

While a faction of the President's followers have put forth bizarre conspiracies about some possible way the election could be overturned, President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20th.

People didn't fault Dale on foregoing the fact checks.





Others rebuked social media platforms like Facebook for giving these lies an audience.



Trump's final day in office is on January 20th.
