    Sexual assault is always funny, yes.

    Can we assume you unquestioningly believe and support Amnesty International now? I'd love to see someone post some of their other claims so we see you agreeing with them.

    By the way. AI said what they "believed" almost 6 years ago. Was Trump worried about all those "ladies" being assaulted then? I'm sure he was. And the Republican base, too. What actions did you all take to go down and help the "ladies"?

    Well I fond many citations like the Huffington Post report below when I searched "Amnesty International reports 60 to 80% of women sexually assaulted"

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/...n_5806972.html

    But the links to every citation to Amnesty Internation lead to this: https://www.amnesty.org/en/library/a...142010eng.pdf/

    I guess they were embarrassed by their report.
    I cannot seem to find the "fact-check" as quoted by redstate on the CBS fact-check link. So they either removed it, or the MAGA media complex is completely making things up that CBS got a fact-check wrong.

Even pathological liars like Trump manage to stumble on the truth every once in a while.

    I noticed though that you don't have any threads about the thousands of times fact checkers have caught him in lies though. Surely that is just an oversight on your part.

    Even if the wall were built, which it won't for a variety of reasons even if he did get his money for it, would only increase the likelihood of more women being raped as they would then be even more dependent on human traffickers to get them here.
    Of course not. Obama lied that one time!

    I'm not exactly sure why Trump supporters think this helps their cause though, unless they think it is fun to deny safety to women and children who are victims of sexual violence. Additionally, my suspicion is that Trump and CBS were talking about two different contexts, though I'd have to read/listen to Trump's speech and I have no desire to do that.

    80% Of Central American Women, Girls Are Raped Crossing Into The U.S.

    As the number of Central American women and girls crossing into the U.S. continues to spike, so is the staggering amount of sexual violence waged against these migrants who are in search of a better life.

    According to a stunning Fusion investigation, 80 percent of women and girls crossing into the U.S. by way of Mexico are raped during their journey. That’s up from a previous estimate of 60 percent, according to an Amnesty International report.

    Obama's "lie" wasn't even that much of a lie. "If you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan." The vast majority of Americans with private insurance are on group plans and did keep their plan. Of those that saw changes, I would be willing to bet that the number of Americans that had to switch plans in the individual market following the ACA is not that much higher than the number of Americans in the private individual market that would have been forced to switch plans due to changes in the market on any given year prior to the ACA. I am not in anyway arguing that he was being completely honest when he made the claim, but in terms of lies, it was more of a half truth as compared to Trump who just invents **** on a daily basis. Politifact called it their "lie of the year" because he wasn't competing with someone like Trump. Obama's lie of the year would be like saying something was the crime of the century in Iceland - a crime but nothing on the crimes committed by real criminals.

    The funny thing of course is that the previous few politifact "lies of the year" were largely Republican attacks on the ACA like the "Death Panels" claim or "A government takeover of health care".

    Please explain how a wall that would then presumably require those women to rely on criminal human traffickers even more to get here, would reduce that number of women getting raped. How many women do you think will be raped by the traffickers that tunnel under the wall, smuggle them over in trucks, or cut through the wall?

    Thank you. yes I agree it's all right wing bunk trying to own the libs when it really doesn't. It still proves that Trump was wrong, and a wall isn't going to solve this problem. The rapists will just rape the women behind the wall. Unless it's see through...

    Oh OK........ Sure.........

    I got you, Trump is as honest as Jesus. Obviously that is why he enjoys stronger support among evangelicals than any president ever.
