In Sunday night’s presidential debate, there were more than a dozen falsehoods and inaccuracies. NBC News and our friends at PolitiFact checked out the candidate’s claims, and here’s what we found.
Trump said he didn’t urge people to “check out a sex tape” about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado. He did.
Trump said health care costs are going up by 68 percent, 59 percent, 71 percent. The national estimate ranges are far lower. *So one takes insurance rises from various places and claim they are wrong because the average is something else. Back when I was in high school I had one class where we were talking statistics well the average family was made up of 2.3 people. **
Trump said Clinton “acid washed” her private email server. She didn’t. She used an app called Bleachbit, not a corrosive chemical.
Trump said Clinton doesn’t know Russia hacked the DNC. U.S. intelligence has said they very likely did.
Trump said Clinton got a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl “off” his charges. She didn’t.The Washington Free Beacon recently obtained audio from a 1980s interview with Clinton in which she concedes some admittedly disquieting information about how she was able to seize on loopholes to minimize the sentence of the suspect, 41-year-old Thomas Alfred Taylor. Though he faced 30 years to life in prison, **Clinton negotiated a plea deal that sentenced him to just one year in county jail and four years of probation. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/hillary-clinton-stands-by-her-defense-of-1975-rape-suspect/
