Examples are scant
"There’s a tremendous other number of public officials who have done the same thing" as Hillary Clinton with a private email server.
Not universal practices
"Prior to 1962, everybody prayed before school started," and "the Bible was the principal textbook in all schools."
Confuses GDP with tax revenues
"In a few months, this deal would give Iran $150 billion" for its $300 billion to $400 billion economy, which is "like $8 trillion flowing into the United States treasury."
Obama talks about it but hasn't scaled back THAT much
"Obama keeps talking about getting rid of all nuclear weapons. He’s already significantly reduced our capabilities there."
Not the data we found
"We know from ... the federal data, that they only stop or apprehend one out of four illegal people crossing our border."
Money, like Trump, has been shifting to the right
Says Donald Trump has "given more money to Democratic candidates than Republican candidates."
"After the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax rate cuts ... there was more money coming into the treasury."
A label yes, but no "S"
The Texas Senate "approved a bill to put a special label on the insurance cards of anyone who bought a plan through Obamacare" that includes the letter "S" for subsidy.
Both are doing pretty well
Says Hillary Clinton "makes more per hour at a speaking gig than the average CEO does in a year."
The proof isn't solid
As a senator, Hillary Clinton "actually paid female staffers a lot less than men."
Moms matter, but this stat is wrong
"Two-thirds of American families rely on the mother's income to stay above the poverty level."
The clip isn't as damning as Scarborough suggests
Says the Clintons "burst through their own self-pronounced guidelines" by accepting foreign donations. "There is a clip of Bill Clinton saying we're not going to take foreign donations."
A misreading of the numbers
"Eighty-five percent of every dollar donated to the Clinton Foundation ended up either with the Clintons or with their staff to pay for travel, salaries, and benefits. Fifteen cents of every dollar actually went to some charitable beneficiary."
No evidence of a pledge
Said President Barack Obama "said he was going to stop (signature strikes)."
What's clear is it's not that clear
The money the Clinton Foundation took from from foreign governments while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state "is clearly illegal. … The Constitution says you can’t take this stuff."
An eat-your-veggies kind of claim
$29 is what "families on SNAP (i.e. food stamps) have to live on for a week."
An exaggeration coupled with fuzzy words
Says Hillary Clinton "erased all of her emails even though they were subject to recall and review by Congress."
No paper trail
"Obama has been sending taxpayer dollars, at least $350,000 to fund anti-Likud, anti-Netanyahu groups in Israel for (the) election."
