This thing about 10,000 lies or whatever it's supposed to be is the same other liberals who show up here said. Politifact etc. are not credible arbiters of truth. They are in fact a joke. "To give but one example, PolitiFact took a statement by Casey Mattox that is 100 percent true and rated it “half true.” His statement was “Zero Planned Parenthood facilities are licensed to do mammograms. Planned Parenthood, women don’t need you!” PolitiFact, after many, many, many paragraphs of throat clearing, admitted that the fact claim was true — zero Planned Parenthood facilities are licensed to do mammograms". "But aha! They said “numbers don’t tell the whole story” on mammograms because people at Planned Parenthood could talk to women about mammograms and stuff. When Democrat Martin O’Malley said that “97 percent of the work that Planned Parenthood does is about mammograms and preventative health,” which we know is not true since zero percent of the work that Planned Parenthood does is mammograms, PolitiFact rated that “half true” as well". There are so many "fact checks" that ludicrously strain to find something wrong with something Pres. Trump said it's impossible to keep up with them all. Here's some ridiculous fact checks on an Oval Office speech. https://thefederalist.com/2019/01/09/medias-angry-response-to-president-trumps-oval-office-speech-comes-up-short/ Pres. Trump said that 266,000 illegals arrested at the border in 2 years: "The fact checkers at the Washington Post characterized this Trump claim, which they admitted was factual, as “misleading” because, and I quote, “this figure includes all types of crimes.” You can’t make it up".

Friends with someone who voted Trump in 2016 because they hoped to upset the apple cart? No problem. Friends with anyone who continues to support Trump today, after non-partisan groups like FactCheck.org and PolitiFact.org document at least 12,000 blatant lies? No thanks.

Dr. Brown, I understand that you support Trump because you think he will end legal abortions in America, but religious Christians and Jews should also be able to demand that he treat asylum seekers and illegal immigrants as human beings. Keeping them in rooms where they can't walk two feet or lie down because they are so crowded is cruel and unhealthy. How many pregnant women living there without good medical care, nutrition, and even space to walk two feet have had miscarriages because of the cruel conditions they are living under? Ironically, they are paying businesses that run these detention centers so much money per person, that they could put individuals and families in hotel rooms with room service for the same amount or less. You can support Trump and also expect him to not violate human rights. Deporting parents without their children and then trying to find them later is crazy and cruel. Can't you be against abortion and for the living people who are suffering at the same time? Trump can be your hero and still be criticized. I have not heard any well-known or barely known Evangelical Christian leaders or any top Jewish religious leaders speak out against his human rights violations, so now I think you all are cold-hearted people beneath all the talk about love and kindness. I hear many atheists who care more about human rights than you all.
