CNN fact checker tears down new ‘Trump bullshit’

CNNFact-checking reporter Daniel Dale Thursday completely exposed one of Donald TrumpShe made wild claims, slamming them as “completely crazy nonsense” and “crazy”.

Trump earlier in the day falsely claimed to reporters that the insurrection and storming of the US Capitol on January 6, 2021 was caused by then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

“That’s a crazy statement, and it’s beyond fact-checking. That’s completely deranged,” Dale said.

“This was a mob of Trump supporters summoned to the city, urged to act brutally by Trump himself. Nancy Pelosi tried to protect the Capitol and tried to call in the National Guard. Commenting on Trump’s comment, he added: “This is complete nonsense.”

Deal also denied Trump’s claim that “there were no weapons.”

“There were actually weapons there,” Dale noted. “We may never get a complete list of how many weapons were there because most of the rioters were allowed to go home without arrest that day, but some people were arrested with weapons.”

Dale named some of the people sentenced to prison for carrying firearms that day. He added: “This idea that has taken hold of parts of the right, and which Trump has fueled, that there were no weapons on that day is completely untrue.”
