Trump makes false statement about U.S. murder rate to sheriffs group

President Trump met Tuesday morning with a group of sheriffs from the National Sheriffs Association, a group that consists of more than 3,000 sheriffs from around the country. And to this sworn group of law enforcement veterans, with reporters taking notes, he again repeated a falsehood about the murder rate in America.

Trump told the sheriffs, “the murder rate in our country is the highest it’s been in 47 years.” He blamed the news media for not publicizing this development, then added, “But the murder rate is the highest it’s been in, I guess, 45 to 47 years.”

The country’s murder rate is not the highest it’s been in 47 years. It is almost at its lowest point, actually, according to the FBI, which gathers statistics every year from police departments around the country.

There is nothing normal about this.

This evil bastard hopes if he just keeps lying long enough and often enough, people will become numb and stop calling him on it.

1. A certain percentage of voters will believe him because they voted for him.

Reagan and Bush lied as often.

7. Reagan and Bush

In my memory weren't in the same delusional universe as this assclown.

Although Reagan was delusional, iirc.

2. I believe the real problem is that Trump's lies are just becoming the norm.

How do we stop that? How do we outrage people at the fact the the president consistently lies?

Raising holy hell when news outlets don't challenge his or other right wing bullshit might be a start.

6. Patriotic Americans are sick of the constant lies from Trump & his Krewe

Republicans, on the other hand, apparently like living in a web of obvious lies. That ugly republican reality speaks volumes.
