Said Glenn Kessler, WaPo's Fact Checker, rounding up the year 2016:
There has never been a serial exaggerator in recent American politics like the president-elect. He not only consistently makes false claims but also repeats them, even though they have been proven wrong. He always insists he is right, no matter how little evidence he has for his claim or how easily his statement is debunked."He always insists he is right, no matter how little evidence he has for his claim or how easily his statement is debunked." Can we get a fact checker on that statement of Kessler's? It can be tagged false if there is even one example of Trump admitting that he was wrong about something! You'd think Kessler would be more careful with a dangerous word like "always" — speaking of things "easily... debunked."
Here you go: Trump admitted he was wrong about seeing a video of American officials delivering $400 million to Iran:
The plane I saw on television was the hostage plane in Geneva, Switzerland, not the plane carrying $400 million in cash going to Iran!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 5, 2016
I'm not disputing that Trump has said a lot of things that lack factual support, like "I won in a landslide — and millions of people voted illegally for Clinton."
