CBS caught Trump in a lie. Hilarity ensues

CBS decided to help Democrats by fact-checking in real time President Trump's address on the need for a wall.

CBS reported, "Fact check: Number of women sexually assaulted on trip to border.

"CLAIM: The president claimed one in three women have been sexually assaulted traveling to the border.

"FACT CHECK: Between 60 percent and 80 percent of female migrants traveling through Mexico are raped along the way, Amnesty International estimates."

Hilarious. Who is in charge? Ralph Wiggum?

Thanks for making the president's point.

The network later scrubbed that from its fact-check.

    2. MSM is simply part of the entertainment industry - this segment is for the Lefty-Liberals, and are also part time operatives for the DNC. At least "ABC News" is openly owned and controlled by Disney Entertainment.

      As such, they need to be tested in court as far as their former 1st Amendment protection = no longer part of the "Free Press"....

    3. CBS and ABC are enemy combatants against any of the the positive benefits to the American people. We have a great President for the 1st time since Ronald Reagan passed from office...

    4. Amen to that. Evseryone is up in arms because Trump won't open the government back up on the promise from the dems that they will negotiate. Ronald Reagan took them at their word and got screwed for it. He gave them what they wanted and they never did as promised. The dems are like North Korea; the end justifies the means and they never keep their word.

  2. Meanwhile, the new head babykiller at Planned Parenthood admitted that abortion is their primary business, which would bar them from receiving federal money. They have claimed for years that abortion is only 2% of their business.

    The media yawns."Of course they lied. They had to lie to get funding. The GOP forced them to lie when they passed the Hyde Amendment. Besides, everybody knew they were lying so it doesn't matter."

    1. Defund Planned Parenthood, AND NPR - they too are entertainment for the Lefty-Liberals...... Or, be fair and fund CRTV to an equal amount as NPR.

    2. Its a cheat and an outrage that NPR and Planned Parenthood have been funded AT ALL, with Federal money. How about some of my tax dollars supporting MY causes? Like the NRA? Could you imagine!? LOL!

    4. I wish Dems were abolished and Republicans were the only party - so things were much easier for our leader. Or maybe we just need to get rid of Congress. POTUS shouldn't have to deal with all this BS. Then again, he does have the power to declare a National Emergency and appropriate the funds on his own.

  3. I taught English 2nd language a few years back to women who had to run this rape gauntlet, which is where I learned of it, and it wasn't just in Mexico. It was also once they got over the border and were crossing the desert. It was a hugely traumatic experience for those who were attacked.

    1. "... for anyone who is attacked that way." And they never knew if they would be allowed to live even after the attack. Talk about toxic masculinity!

      Delete
    2. For the women who are attacked, they know they will live. They are only a commodity to the coyotes and they know it. If the Coyote kills them, there is no ransom money once they are securely in a rape house on the U.S. side.

    4. That's why they should come legally...

  4. Don't know about that 60-80% number unless that is per day. The one in three number was true regarding Mexican women, but for the ones coming from central America and other places, it approaches 100%.
    Sorry, no scientific study to support that, I just know a lot of Latina women and that is what I've been told by them.
    I don't have a problem with people coming here. I want them to do so legally. I want them barred from receiving welfare, subsidized housing, free medical or food stamps. Require them to get a job and keep their noses clean. Hands as well.
    I don't want to see them exploited abused or dead, and that is the main thing that happens with the illegal migration that is really an invasion.
    I know they want a better life, we all do. Part of it starts with creating a better world in their home land. We did it here, they can do it there.

    1. Most are following Obama's agents he sent there to teach them how to game our system - illegal on several levels, but like Obama's part in the murder of US Agent Brian Terry, nothing will happen as Democrats are held to different laws than the rest of us....

  5. The TOTAL failure of "US led aid to help poor countries" is the biggest story not talked about.

    Instead of "aid", it should be loans to profit making businesses, only. None for local gov't, none for local NGO, none for charity. Loans so those who want to make something people want to buy, can start making it and see if enough people buy it to make a profit.
    If so, the profit proves the sustainability.
    If not, loan fails -- and then it is written off as "aid/loan loss".

    Only profitable companies in the poor countries can create a "Local Dream" to have a better life there.

    2. Tom Grey Billions wasted, just like the "war on drugs" and "war on poverty". Enslaved people to the government dole and/or in prison.

    3. Well said, and factual....

      Delete
    4. Tom Grey: The real beauty of that idea? It requires no gov't whatsoever. The loans can be made by private citizens. One private citizen doesn't have enough money? They can collect from their associates, voluntarily. And if those private citizens want to fund charities or NGOs, they can do that, too. And, when they want to stop... they can!

  6. Don, you know what this sounds like? It sounds like we've raised a generation of "journalists"c-- and successful ones at that -- who can't easily convert fractions to percentages in their heads.

    The "fact check" only flew until it got to someone at CBS News who understands arithmetic.

    Bet I'm right.

    And that's even sadder than the rest of their SJW reflexes.

  9. A senior associate with the Latin America Working Group told CNN back in April that “her organization’s research with migrant shelters in Mexico and Central America has shown that about 1 in 3 women endure some kind of sexual abuse at the hands of migration agents or organized crime while transiting Mexico.”

    1. In other words, when Amnesty wanted to make us appear bad for not letting them all in, Leftists produced an inflated number. Now that they want to minimize the issue, they produced another one.

      Same with the "one in 5 women" statistic.

  10. Criminals on both sides of the border know that illegal immigrants carry cash with them. They have no choice, since they do not have bank accounts. Migrants heading north carry money for coyotes as well as food. If an illegal alien has any money at all, he will be carrying it with him at all times. Criminals also know that border jumpers don't call the cops.

  11. Good thing you linked to an archive site, Don. Looks like CBS took that fact check away.
    https://www.cbsnews.com/live-news/trump-primetime-address-to-nation-speech-announcement-border-wall-fight-government-shutdown-today/

    All in all, they didn’t disprove much.

  15. The point is the Dem.'s know there is a bad problem and the Dem.'s refuse to do anything just because it's president Trump That's president and the elites have hated him way before he was even president! The Dem.s really don't care about the people they just care about power and their own elites! They say they care but everything they've done hasn't been for the people! there not doing there job for the country there doing the job for there party, socialism and globalism! If the Dem.'s keep this up there only going to start a civil war and I really hope Nancy Polosi, crying Chuck Schummer Kamala Harris and etc. get there's! These aren't people we need leading our country! They all have become Communist's and are trying to lead our country down a dark path! Right now were fighting to keep our country a Republic not a Democracy as the Dem.s keep saying and are trying to make us socialists ( Communists ) I'll not live in a country of socialism ( communism )

  16. Here's another fake "fact check" - this time from the radical liberal NY Times. We all know that the president speaks the truth and these libtards just want to rain on his parade! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/01/11/us/politics/trump-border-crisis-reality.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage

  17. We don't want to get rid of the dems, especially since they have swung so far to the left. Now there is no comparison to the GOP and lets thank God for Nancy and Chuck. They are so ridiculous they make the differences obvious. And we should not be surprised the dems are against a border barrier now. They know it will work and then they could not get as many illegals into the country to vote for them. 75% of illegals vote democrat and that is a permanent voting majority for them. If republicans don't start getting off the couch and vote like the dems do, we will be an annex to Mexico in a short time.
