Donald Trump on PolitiFact's 'Lie of the Year'



Crowned liar of the year by PolitiFact, Donald Trump responded today on Fox News.

“Well PolitiFact is an example — I’ve been proven right. You look at Breitbart, they talk about when I said they were dancing on the rooftops, dancing in the streets, I’m right about that. There are many articles that say in New Jersey, there are many articles that say that’s true. And PolitiFact — which is by the way a totally left-wing group — they are bad news, I mean as far as checking. You could tell something 100 percent and they will make it out to a lie if you’re a certain person. So PolitiFact didn’t like the idea that I said dancing on rooftops, dancing on streets, but that’s been confirmed by hundreds of people.

Well, you know there were a lot of people, and I’ve had it from a lot of people. We’ve had hundreds of phone calls. We’ve had tweets at @RealDonaldTrump, we’ve had proof, but we’ve also had articles in The Washington Post, at the time it took place, we’ve had articles elsewhere. I mean, they were celebra — which, look, the only purpose in saying that is that there’s something wrong when you have people celebrating the fall of the World Trade Center and throughout the world they were celebrating and nobody disputes that.”
