That was a lie!

I have family who live in Indiana & unemployment is still high and if you get a job, it's a minimum wage pay!

1. it's just a cascade of lies

and they come so fast and furious that the media can't (or won't) check them all. And you know what they say, you repeat lies often enough and the people start to believe them. Witness Fox News.

Pretty shameful.

6. They've gone full Gish Gallop...

on everything. It's what Faux Noise has been doing for years. Keep piling on all the "factoids" and nobody gets time to offer any counter. It's why they talk over everybody when "debating" or "interviewing." Don't give them time to rebut anything. Just keep spewing the lies.

5. Well, in May 2016 it was 5%

Let's concentrate on beating them up about the things they lie about rather than the things they don't lie about. I guarantee there are far more of the former than the latter.

9. The way Trump made it out to be it was lower.

The jobs that were out there, don't pay well.

10. The point is

if he said it was "around 5%", then it's not a lie.

11. My point was that Pence claiming good jobs are coming back isn't true!

I am not going to get into a tit for tat with you. Go listen to the speech and you will hear for yourself.
