I realize I haven’t posted much on this week’s Republican National Convention, mainly because who could possibly keep up with the fact-checking needed to counter the huge amount of misinformation coming from the speakers.
CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale does a great job of pointing out many of Donald Trump’s lies from his renomination speech last night.
By the way, CNN’s Brian Stelter reports news that is sure to burn the Donald: more folks tuned in for former Vice President Joe Biden’s speech at the Democratic National Convention last week than Trump’s lie-fest on Thursday night.

The ratings are in: Trump’s speech was lower-rated than Biden’s speech one week ago, per overnight Nielsen #’s. About 21.6 million for Trump, 23.6 million for Biden. The #’s may fluctuate a bit, but not enough to change the takeaway. Here’s my full storyhttps://t.co/bMrveuOwdL
