In a back and forth exchange between Giuliani and Chris Cuomo on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, the former mayor of New York City called Trump one of the most honest presidents in history.
“If fact counting is anything, we’ve never had anybody with the level of mendacity that he has,” Cuomo quickly responded, likely alluding to the over 4,000 false or misleading claims Trump has made, according to The Washington Post since taking office.
“It’s in the eye of the beholder,” Giuliani said. When Cuomo tried to respond that factual statements are not in the eye of the beholder, the attorney answered with “nowadays they are.”
Now, where have we heard something like this before?
Oh yeah, Kellyanne Conway saying that there was such a thing as “alternative facts.”
This entire administration is completely divorced from any facts that challenge their version of the truth, and it is up to the media to keep reminding the public that facts do, not only matter, but exist.
