NBC fact check: Hillary not a ‘world class liar’ but Trump is
A fact check of Donald Trump’s statement that Hillary Clinton is a “world class liar” reflects poorly on The Donald.
Many of Trump’s claims did not hold water — including an accusation that Clinton is a “world class liar.” NBC found that just over half of Clinton’s claims checked out as true or mostly true, versus only 9 percent of Trump’s claims being true (2 percent) or mostly true (7 percent).
Trump may well attribute the accusation to himself, because a whopping 59 percent of his claims were completely false, versus only 12 percent of Clinton’s.
In the course of the speech, Trump claimed that he had opposed to 2003 war in Iraq from the get-go — a claim that is not true.
Trump said Wednesday, “It all started with her bad judgment in supporting the War in Iraq in the first place. Though I was not in government service, I was among the earliest to criticize the rush to war, and yes, even before the war ever started.”
The only part of that claim seems to be that Trump didn’t serve in the military or government.
