Trump lies every 3 minutes and 5 seconds

 

NBC News and our friends at PolitiFact fact checked the first presidential debate. Here's what we found.

 

 

1.Trump said it's "wrong" that he supported the invasion of Iraq. It's not.

2.Trump said he told Howard Stern "very lightly, I don't know, maybe, who knows?" about the war in Iraq. Trump actually said "I guess so, yeah."

3. Trump said Clinton and her campaign started the "birther" movement. They didn't.

4.Trump said it was "wrong" to say that stop-and-frisk racially profiled individuals. It did.

5.Trump said ending stop-and-frisk made the city more dangerous. It didn't.

6.Trump said murder is up in New York City. It's not.

7.Trump said he "did not say" global warming is a hoax. He did.

8.Clinton said "the only two" tax returns Trump's released showed he didn't paid taxes those years. They did show that.

9.Trump said "you will learn more" from financial disclosure than from tax returns. You won't.

10.Clinton said Trump rooted for the housing crisis. He did repeatedly say it could benefit him as an investor.

11.Trump said "nobody knows" the DNC hack was perpetrated by Russians. U.S. intelligence say they have a "high confidence" it was.

 

12.Trump said ISIS controls "a lot of" oil in Libya. They don't.

13.Trump said the U.S. should have taken Libya's oil. That violates the Geneva Convention.

14.Trump said that endorsement was 16,500 Border Patrol. No, it is 6,700 officers, agents, and ICE employees.

15.Trump said he started his company with a "very small loan in 1975," while Clinton said he got $14 million from his father. She's right: Trump got millions more than he acknowledges.

16.Trump said Clinton has been fighting ISIS for her entire adult life. It's only been around for a fifth of her adult life.

17. Trump said Clinton is spending "hundreds of millions" on ads against him. She's spent $96.4 million.

18.Trump said he "didn't say" women don't deserve equal pay unless they do as good a job as men. In October, Trump told a young woman who asked if she'd make equal pay under a Trump presidency, "you're gonna make the same if you do as good a job."

19.Trump said he "never said" pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers. He did.

Trump thinks Hillary has been president for the past 30 years. He belongs in a nuthouse.
