Default In a 30-minute interview, President Trump made 24 false or misleading claims

that's gotta be some sortta record...even for the liar in chief.

<President Trump gave an impromptu half-hour interview with the New York Times on Dec. 28. We combed through the transcript and here’s a quick roundup of the false, misleading or dubious claims that he made, at a rate of one every 75 seconds. (Some of the interview was off the record, so it’s possible the rate of false claims per minute is higher.)>

<“Virtually every Democrat has said there is no collusion. There is no collusion. . . . I saw Dianne Feinstein the other day on television saying there is no collusion.”>

<Trump appears to be referring to an interview with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee. She did not flatly say there was no collusion and instead was more nuanced. Asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper on Nov. 5 whether she had “seen any evidence that this dirt, these emails, were ever given to the Trump campaign,” she replied: “Not so far.” Tapper then asked: “Have you seen any communications that suggested that the Trump campaign wanted them to release them through a different means?” She answered: “I have not.”>

<“I think it’s been proven that there is no collusion.”>

<Trump is entitled to his own opinion, but he sidesteps the fact that the investigation has revealed that members of the Trump campaign interacted with Russians at least 31 times throughout the campaign. There are at least 19 known meetings, in addition to the indictments or guilty pleas of his campaign manager, national security adviser, and others. Here’s The Fact Checker’s video on our count.>

The MSM doesn't even know the definition of "vacation," so I put little stock in their fact-checking abilities.

When the media wipes off Obama's love juices off their chin and start being honest for a change then they'll regain some of their credibility.

And as we know, the definition of "vacation" is nothing Trump ever does because would shatter the illusion his faithful have built for themselves.
