Fact Check: Trump and Biden hold dueling town halls

Fact Check: Trump and Biden hold dueling town halls 1

 

The stark differences between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden were on display during their competing town halls, and in no space was that clearer than the magnitude and frequency of their falsehoods.
The fact that the second debate was cancelled after Trump backed out of the proposed virtual format deprived Americans of a chance to see the two candidates sparring on the same stage. But where Biden scattered in a small number of exaggerations or misstatements over about an hour and a half, Trump unleashed a barrage of dishonest claims over about an hour.
Trump falsely claimed that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 85% of people who wear masks get the coronavirus, again argued inaccurately that there is widespread fraud with mail-in voting, defended as mere "opinion" a baseless conspiracy theory he retweeted about Osama bin Laden and the US military, and repeated familiar false or misleading remarks about the state of the pandemic, Biden's tax plan, job creation, and his own positions on DACA and pre-existing conditions.
Biden falsely claimed that Trump did nothing on unemployment after the initial round of congressional aid expired, wrongly asserted that there are more troops in Afghanistan today than there were when he left the vice presidency, and seemed to incorrectly deny that his website called the Green New Deal a "crucial framework."

    Politics: the art of using euphemisms, lies, emotionalism and fear-mongering to dupe average people into accepting–or even demanding–their own enslavement.

    • @WindBreaker stop crying, Barack Obama had to deal with mitch McConnell and those Republican dickheads blocking his legislations

    • Here’s how WORTHLESS the BIDEN townhall was: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcLbTSLQ-IM BIDEN is going to fail spectacularly!!

      @Haeman Yeah, did you notice the question mark as in I was asking, because I didn`t know.
      But you took it on yourself to insult me and then it sounds like your sticking up for antifa? That would be ridiculous of course your not condoning antifa.
      sorry I would even think it.
      As far as the proud boys, I am not familiar with their tactics but I will look them up and see if they are any better or worse than your Democrat bully squads Antifa and BLM.

    • Extreme Trigger Warning for CNN Viewers :
      Biden and Trump are virtually tied in Florida, a Mason-Dixon poll released Friday. And they are virtually tied in Arizona

      Biden holds a narrow lead over Trump in Florida, garnering 48 percent support to Trump’s 45 percent. However, his slim lead is within the survey’s +/- 4 percent margin of error, pointing to a virtual tie in the Sunshine State. Six percent remain undecided.

      There is a virtual tie in Arizona:Trump 45%, Biden 43% The Poll , fielded September 23 to October 2 among 1,045 likely voters, showed Trump narrowly leading Biden by two percentage points 

      ( For you Bidentards :Mason-Dixon Poll is the nation’s most active state polling organization of any polling companies in the US, conducting copyrighted public opinion polls for news media organizations in all 50 states. These media clients include over 250 local television affiliates and over 100 daily newspapers.They were only one of three pollsters that got the 2016 election right)

      @Libras and Lions “Standing up for himself like a man”, now that has to be the most ironic comment considering Biden by his own admission (several times) thinks he’s running for senate or vice president and can’t remember what state he’s in at any given time. Chris O’Biden had to try and stand up to President Trump during the debate because ole Joe was getting destroyed on an epic scale and you say “Standing up for himself like a man” hell he runs when reporters ask him unscripted questions his wife goes to rallies in his absence “because he’s a man”? I THINK NOT. Ask him about Hunters laptop the emails and the REAL COLLUSION going on between him, Hunter and the Russians. Watch how he tucks tail and runs then. Man…. No, a criminal and a coward. TRUMP 2020!!!!

      @vegas j I’m sure you believe all that delusional mess….. BLESS YOUR HEART!! TRUMP 2020!!!

    • @Ok N two things here my dude. Firstly you don’t know their family, so maybe they actually are THAT FAR right. Secondly your case is the other way around, doesn’t that say more about how democrats and liberals are, than what you’re trying to proof?

    • @vegas j You need to learn from your elders! Democrats teach hate that’s why you won’t talk to your family. You would vote for Joe Biden he thinks he’s running for senate. Democrats sell you on the idea that they will take care of you. How many years has this been going on? Joe’s 47 years in office has bought him a very good salary. In your 18 years has it done for you? Hard work makes you successful and planning ahead. Your young you can do it. The economy is great it will work for you.

    • @vegas j Democrats are the racist ones. They talk about it all the time especially election time. Trump supporters work for a living they don’t have time to be racist. They work for their families.

  4. Ah! the truth shall set us free….heaven willing…

  5. Honestly the next debate should have a fact checker correct them right after a statement. Make them accountable for lies

      @Jacob Wilkie 200k dead, would u prefer the forecasted 2million? So why are most covid deaths in democrat run cities? Why did democrat governors refused trumps help. If u burn ur own house down, whose fault is it?

    • @Jacob Wilkie The blatant liars must be interrupted by someone from continuing the spreading of blatant lies to the public. It sure as hell won’t be from their media (the main sources of the lies), or Twitter, or Facebook, or the fake news that are all working in orchestrated lock-step for the corrupt Dem mafia. Their rigged town hall sessions are always feeding Biden little fluffy bullshit Sesame Street questions, ZERO mention of his CHINA/Hunter corruption,…. then to Trump they resort to 100% LOADED and “GOTCHA” question after question as Savanna Guthrie just did. You posting here about “fairness” in today’s VILE Dem’s corrupt and politically-dominated environment is a fuckiing JOKE! Even Ray Charles can see this, and he was blind and is DEAD!

    • @cessna caravan Ok, you seriously need to do your research on the numbers. It’s 214K not 200K. And forecasted 2 million? Not true at all. That number only came out as a number if the government did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING and no Americans ever wore a mask or took any steps towards the guidelines. And about the Proud Boys, they are white supremacists and they are organized. ANTIFA is not. Big difference.

    • @Jacob Wilkie false in the first debate Biden was the first one to interrupt and after that it became Trump vs moderator. I’m the VP debate kamala had like 4 more minutes of talking time cuz she wouldn’t answer her questions and pence would give her his time and she still didn’t answer

    • @iKing Aces Well we aren’t liberals

    • @Agador Spartacus make that 3.3k dislike. 😉

  8. Putting “fact check” on your story at this point is no better than having your motto be “reliable sources”.

    • @clit_niblr036 here comes the russiagate conspiracy theorists at it again. Why don’t you ever mention the entire thing was provably set up by the Clinton camp and pushed through by Obama’s fbi? They were getting liability insurance. Go listen to madcow some more.

    • @Mr. Natural – Here comes the Paid Russian Troll whose IP address is pinging from somewhere in Moscow.

    • Baheeg Deek As someone else has already said …. Hunter has admitted he had a bad drug addiction, has gotten treatment, and is clean now.

  9. When a video has more dislikes than likes…. Yea. That says something

  10. “Fact Check”

    I literally started laughing when I saw this in the video description.
    Anyone with at least two functioning brain cells know full well the media in this country is corrupt.
    I’m more conservative in my political views but I recognize that FOX is just a bunch of right wing hacks.
    I’m sure the more progressive among us recognize that CNN is just liberal activism disguised as journalism.

    The main stream media isn’t fooling anybody. At least not people who are capable of rational thought.

    Does CNN ever get tired of smelling its own farts? I used to watch your network every day a few years back and now you’ve totally thrown away any sense of independent reporting. You guys are pathetic.

  13. My sister told me that she heard that some guy down the street said to her that it was fake…
    …that’s how to fact check. BOOM

  14. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Daniel Dale’s got the most difficult job in media right now. I feel like we’ve watched his hairline recede in real time over the last few years. No way he ever thought that being a fact-checker would entail much work.

  15. If you don’t feed me “ facts “as I want to hear them or tell me the “truth “ which matches with how I feel, then you are clearly not on my mind. This is tribalism it’s fueled with propaganda, fear mongering and conspiracy innuendo. This toxic age of politics are we living in today has no room for objectivity

  16. “ the disinfectant can knock it out in one minute. Can we try something like that by injecting inside, once it gets in the lungs it does a tremendous job” Donald Trump

    4 years and no wars, peace in the middle east, North Korea under control…if this is “chaos”, give me four more years under Trump. Only people upset are Dems and Communist China!

  18. Hunter was giving half his take to his crooked father these traitors should be tried for treason!!!
    wonder what else is on Crackheads Laptop…
    The swamp is going down!!!

  19. Biden is China. I dare tell you that America will lose the next 100 years!
