    slave FORD no one cares about the F A T Orange man's speech that calls for war, austerity, racism, xenophobia, death to the middle class, and grandstanding then the pseudo-left media that you subscribe to.

    Orange 45 said he has a good relationship with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un.
    This is misleading.
    Orange 45 frequently says that thanks to his efforts, the United States has “a very good relationship” with North Korea. He also frequently mentions the flowery letters he has received from Mr. Kim. The two do seem to have forged a personal relationship that no other American president has sought. But the United States remains technically at war with North Korea, and intelligence leaders have concluded that Mr. Kim has no desire to give up the country’s nuclear weapons.
    --------------------------------
    Orange 45 claimed El Paso turned from one of the most dangerous to “one of our safest cities” after a border barrier was built.
    This is false.
    El Paso was never one of the most dangerous cities in the United States, and crime has been declining in cities across the country — not just El Paso — for reasons that have nothing to do with border fencing. In 2008, before border barriers had been completed in El Paso, the city had the second-lowest violent crime rate among more than 20 similarly sized cities. In 2010, after the fencing went up, it held that place.
    --------------------------------

    Orange 45 said the “socialist policies” of President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela have ruined his nation.
    This is misleading.
    This has become a popular talking point among American conservatives. It is true that the rule of Mr. Maduro has brought Venezuela to economic ruin. Inflation is at astronomical rates, and ordinary people are struggling to get basic food and health supplies. Three million citizens have fled. Some of the collapse can be traced back to Mr. Maduro’s economic policies, which do fall under the broad label of “socialism.” But analysts say that corruption, the lack of rule of law and the absence of democracy — all the hallmarks of a dictatorship — have played just as big or larger roles. There are many nations in South America, Europe and other parts of the world that have adopted their versions of socialist economic policies and had positive outcomes.
    --------------------------------
    Orange 45 said he thought the United States would be in a “major war with North Korea” if he had not been elected president.
    There is no evidence.
    In 2016, at the end of the Obama administration, there was no sign that the United States and North Korea were about to go to war, though Pyongyang had been conducting nuclear tests and President Barack Obama had continued economic sanctions. In Orange 45’s first year in office, he increased tensions with North Korea by attacking its leader, Kim Jong-un, in a series of Twitter posts, which prompted hostile statements from Pyongyang. Orange 45 wrote that North Korea’s actions would be met with “fire and fury” and called Mr. Kim “Little Rocket Man.” Analysts said at the time that the chances of war between the two nations had grown because of these exchanges.
    --------------------------------
    Orange 45 said that lawmakers in New York cheered the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth.
    This is misleading.
    On Jan. 22, the 46th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark Roe v. Wade decision, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a Democrat of New York, signed the Reproductive Health Act, which ensures a woman’s right to an abortion in New York if Roe v. Wade were to be overturned. It does not broadly allow abortions until shortly before birth, as Orange 45 suggested. Instead, it will allow for an abortion after 24 weeks to protect the mother’s health or if the fetus is not viable. Under the prior law, abortions were allowed after 24 weeks only if the woman’s life was in jeopardy.
    --------------------------------
    Orange 45 said the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which replaces Nafta, will bring back manufacturing jobs, expand American agriculture and enable more cars to be built in the United States.
    This is exaggerated.
    The revised trade deal with Canada and Mexico does include provisions that are intended to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States — including minimum wage provisions for some auto manufacturing. But some economists have said those provisions could ultimately push more manufacturing — and jobs — outside of North America. The deal does allow American farmers to sell more dairy products to Canada. But trade pact has yet to be approved by Congress, and both Democrats and Republicans say that is unlikely to happen without significant changes.
    --------------------------------
    Orange 45 said, “I want people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally.”
    This is misleading.
    Many of the recent changes to immigration policy introduced by the White House have targeted people who are trying to enter the country legally, such as people who are seeking asylum. The changes in asylum policy have limited the number of people who can apply for asylum each day and restricted the places where they can apply.
    --------------------------------

    Orange 45 said that one in three migrant women is sexually assaulted on the long journey north toward the American border.
    There is no evidence.
    This figure does not reflect current statistics, and while experts agree is it a serious problem, there is no definitive data available to establish how often sexual assaults against migrant women occurs. The statistic appears to come from a 2010 report that used data from a book that had been written more than a decade earlier, according to The Washington Post.
    --------------------------------
    Orange 45 said that a border barrier in San Diego “almost completely ended illegal crossings.”
    This is misleading.
    Border apprehensions decreased by 91 percent in the San Diego sector from the 1994 fiscal year, right after the original border fencing was completed, to the 2018 fiscal year. But, according to the Congressional Research Service, that fence alone “did not have a discernible impact” on the number of immigrants crossing the border into the United States illegally. Instead, a combination of additional staffing and new technology is what proved effective — in addition to the fencing. Over all, border crossings have been declining for nearly two decades even in areas without barriers.
    --------------------------------
    Orange 45 said large, organized caravans of Central Americans are on the march to the United States.
    This is exaggerated.
    At the end of January, a new caravan of thousands of migrants from Central America was headed north, and some of the travelers said they intended to try to cross into the United States. But many in the caravan have said they plan to remain in Mexico, thanks in part to policies put in place by the new Mexican government. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has made it easier for Central Americans to get visas and work in Mexico. President Trump’s warnings of an imminent invasion from new caravans is overstated.
    --------------------------------

    Orange 45 described illegal border crossings as a “urgent national crisis.”
    This is false.
    The number of illegal border crossings have been declining for two decades. Customs and Border Protection arrested more than 50,000 people trying to illegally cross the southwestern border each month in October, November and December. While that is an uptick from the monthly average in the fiscal year that ended in September 2017, the numbers pale in comparison to early 2000s, when border arrests averaged about 100,000 per month.

    A record number of families have tried to cross the border in recent months, overwhelming officials at the border and creating a new kind of humanitarian crisis.
    --------------------------------

    Orange 45 said one of his guests to Tuesday’s speech was the first person released as a result of last year’s criminal justice overhaul.
    There is no evidence.
    Matthew Charles is one of the most recognized faces of the federal criminal justice overhaul; however, there is no way to know that he is the first person released as a result of the First Step Act, which Orange 45 signed into law in December. Mr. Charles was sentenced in 1996 to 35 years in prison for selling crack cocaine. He was released early in 2016 and then was sent back to prison last year after a court realized he fell short of the requirements for early release. Politicians in both parties seized on his story as a leading example for the need to reform federal sentencing policies.
    --------------------------------

    Orange 45 said that the economy added almost 600,000 manufacturing jobs, and that “almost everyone” said this was impossible.
    This is false.
    The economy has added 454,000 jobs manufacturing jobs since January 2017. That is closely comparable to the pace of job creation during some two-year periods during the Obama administration, and significantly slower than the pace of job creation in manufacturing in the 1990s.
    --------------------------------

    Orange 45 said “We have created 5.3 million new jobs.”
    This is false.
    The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that since January 2017, when Orange 45 took office, the economy has added 4.9 million jobs.
    --------------------------------

    In prereleased remarks of the speech, Orange 45 said “Already, as a result of my administration’s efforts, in 2018 drug prices experienced their single largest decline in 46 years.”
    This is misleading.
    Under pressure from the White House, many drug companies delayed or rolled back price increases last year. But dozens of drug manufacturers raised prices on hundreds of medicines this year, in defiance of the president’s wishes. New cancer drugs, for instance cost on average more than $100,000 a year.
    --------------------------------

    Orange 45 said that no president has cut more regulations in such a short time than any other administration during its entire tenure.
    This is false.
    The Trump administration has slowed the pace of adopting new rules, and it has moved to roll back some existing or proposed federal regulations, particularly in the area of environmental protection. The White House claimed that as of October 2018, a total of $33 billion worth of future regulator costs had been eliminated. But experts say that the scale of the rollbacks in the Trump era still does not exceed massive cuts in federal rules during the Carter and Reagan administrations, when rules governing airline, truck and rail transportation were wiped off the books, among other changes.
    --------------------------------

    Orange 45 said that more people are working in the United States than at any time in history.
    This is misleading.
    While the total number of people working in the United States is higher than ever, it is not because of the president’s policies. It is because more people than ever live in the United States. The more relevant way to look at this is the labor force participation rate, which measures the percentage of people working as a portion of the population. That is nowhere near a record.
    --------------------------------

    Orange 45 said the American economy is considered “far and away the hottest economy anywhere in the world.”
    This is false.
    The American economy expanded at an annual rate of 3.5 percent in the third quarter of 2018, the most recent available data. Growth in Latvia and Poland was almost twice as fast. Same for China and India. Even the troubled Greek economy posted stronger growth. And a wide range of economic analysts estimate that the growth of the American economy slowed in the fourth quarter, and slowed even further in the first month of 2019.
    --------------------------------
    In excerpts released before his speech, Orange 45 said Americans can be proud that we have more women in the work force than ever before.
    This is misleading.
    The number of women in the work force reached a new high in December, although it then declined slightly in January. But that’s a result of population growth. The percentage of American women with jobs peaked in 2000 at 58 percent. As of January, it was just 55.2 percent.

    So standing there reading out stuff that is factually untrue is no longer lying, it's now 'Thoughtful story telling'?

    Maybe next year they could get the guy that wrote Hamilton to put it to music.

    You mean like when Bill Clinton said, "I didn't have sex with that woman"?
