Trump tells numerous lies at his notorious North Carolina rally

At his now notorious North Carolina rally (chants of “Send her home”) let’s not overlook the lies Trump also made. There were almost too many to count. Here are just a few.

Lie about crowd: “We haven’t had an empty seat in any event, I don’t believe, that we’ve ever been to. I don’t think, we’ve ever had — we’ve always had people — we haven’t had an empty seat.”

Fact: There were empty seats at this very rally. There have also been empty seats at other Trump events.

Lie about Pre-existing conditions: “Patients with preexisting conditions are protected by Republicans much more so than protected by Democrats who will never be able to pull it off.”

Fact: Democrats have already pulled it off: they installed protections for people with preexisting conditions in the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. Republicans, conversely, have repeatedly tried to weaken these protections.

Lie about The Wall: “Unemployment, among Hispanic Americans, where we’re doing really well. You know why? Because they want a strong border. They want it because they understand the border better than anybody. They want that strong border. They want that wall, that’s being built right now. They want that wall, and they really do. “

Fact: A majority of Hispanics oppose Trump’s proposed border wall, polls show.

At least 20 Trump lies were documented at his rally.

Trump lies about claims he tried to stop ‘Send her back!’ chants about Rep. Ilhan Omar

At a Trump campaign rally Wednesday, the crowd broke into an extended chant — “Send her back!” — about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).

Trump said he tried to stop the “Send her back!” chants by quickly resuming his speech. He didn’t. He stood there and waited out the crowd before starting to talk again. Video of the rally shows Trump standing passively onstage, watching the crowd. The chants die down on their own.

Trump then continues his attack. The crowd stops him again, chanting “send her back!” for 13 seconds. Trump stands onstage, waits for the chant to die down, then keeps talking about Omar.

Trump lied again. And his lie is right there on video.
