Trump Had Another Bonkers Oval Office Press Conference and CNN's Factchecker Doesn't Even Know Where To Begin
When Donald Trump took office in January 2017, the Toronto Star's Washington bureau chief was tasked with fact checking the new President's public statements. That bureau chief, Daniel Dale, got so good at spotting the lies, false claims, alternative facts and half-truths that CNN eventually recruited him to do the job for them.

Hillary Clinton Showed Up at an Art Exhibit of Her E-mails and Read Them at a Replica of the Resolute Desk
A lot can be said about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton—and many people do—but it cannot be said she has no sense of humor. Anyone who enjoyed one of her speaking engagements or talk show appearances could see that humor on display.
And the former Democratic Senator for New York is even willing to joke about getting almost 3 million more votes than the other guy but not becoming President. One main issue during the 2016 election was emails sent and received by then Secretary of State Clinton on a private email server.
In Leaked E-Mail, Fox News Reporter Says Donald Trump Pulled Him Aside to Argue He Was Right About Alabama Being in Dorian's Path
It could have been just a misstatement had President Donald Trump been willing to simply apologize and move on.
Instead, Trump is still trying to vindicate his September 1 tweet, which said Hurricane Dorian would be headed for Alabama. It prompted a swift correction from the National Weather Service and a subsequent angry tweet. Days later, Trump gave updates on Dorian in the Oval Office, where he displayed a six day old map of Dorian's outdated trajectory. The cone of uncertainty in the graph was altered with black permanent marker to include Alabama. When asked to explain what it was, Trump said, "I don't know. I don't know. I don't know."
