President Trump's tweet
under scrutiny from this morning.
The President tweeting this:
“122 vicious prisoners
released by the Obama administration
have returned to the battlefield.”
But Jon, you were among the many
who pointed out today
the vast majority of those prisoners
who have returned to the battlefield
were actually released
by the Bush administration.
Here's how Sean Spicer responded.
Obviously, the President meant
the number that had been released
on the battlefield.
So, Jon, how do you reconcile
the President's tweet
which was very clear,
and the Press Secretary who said
obviously meant something else?
This is not the first time that
the President's team has had to say
that what the President meant is
from what he actually tweeted.
There simply isn't a fact-checking ritual
that goes on with those tweets.
