Wrong person, wrong study
The claim that 97 percent of scientists believe humans are causing climate change has been debunked by the "head" of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. "That number was pulled out of thin air."
'Two orders of mischaracterization'
"The most recent survey of climate scientists said about 57 percent don’t agree with the idea that 95 percent of the change in the climate is caused by CO2."
Number is vastly inflated
"We have 93 million people out of work. They look for jobs, they give up, and all of a sudden, statistically, they're considered employed."
In the middle of the pack, if not lower
"We’re the most highly taxed nation in the world."
Only if you arbitrarily exclude a majority of federal spending
Says 57 percent of federal spending goes to the military and just 1 percent goes to food and agriculture, including food stamps.
Not true now (or in 2009)
"We spend almost twice as much per capita on health care as do the people of any other country."
Kelly's claims check out
"Some of the things that (Megyn Kelly) said, I didn’t say."
More like a promise not to attack
"Ukraine was a nuclear-armed state. They gave away their nuclear arms with the understanding that we would protect them."
It's been a hot topic for a long time
Illegal immigration "wasn’t a subject that was on anybody’s mind until I brought it up at my announcement."
Key statistics have been much worse historically
Under President Barack Obama, income levels and unemployment numbers "are worse now than just about ever" for African-Americans.
She's done it twice, and has agreed to do more
Says Hillary Clinton "refuses to testify before Congress" about the 2012 attack in Benghazi.
A scare tactic aimed at senior citizens
"Obama Makes Huge Move to BAN Social Security Recipients From Owning Guns"
They haven't gone anywhere
The five Guantanamo detainees swapped for Bowe Bergdahl "are right now back on the battlefield."
Maybe before, but not by start of talks
President Barack Obama "said at the beginning of the negotiations that the basic approach was to dismantle Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for dismantling the sanctions."
Major provisions, casework support are not "nothing"
Says John McCain "has done nothing to help the vets."
There's no discriminatory policy on the books
"If you're from Syria and you're a Christian, you cannot come into this country" as a refugee.
Wrong on both cost and effectiveness
"The $5 billion website for Obamacare … never worked. Still doesn't work."
Literary hit, but not top seller
Says his book, The Art of the Deal, is "the No. 1 selling business book of all time."
Up or stable, not down
Public support for abortion "is actually going down a little bit," polls show.
He let go of colonization idea well before his death
"Lincoln was fervently making plans to send all freed slaves to the jungles of Central America once the (Civil War) was over. … The only thing that kept this from happening was his assassination."
