Networks Fact-Check Trump Speech

Twitter

"Let me get back in your face, 'cause you're such a smart ass most of the time and I know you want this to go viral", Conway said.

'But these people behind you say it's worth it, ' Trump reportedly added, gesturing at communications aides Bill Shine, Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway. "It has not been approved by Congress and even if it is, there's no provision there to make Mexico pay for the wall", Stephanopoulos said.

Fox News averaged 8 million viewers from 9-9:30 p.m. ET, while MSNBC averaged 4.2 million and CNN averaged 3.6 million sets of eyeballs.

On Monday evening CBS said yes, it would air the address, and NBC and ABC followed within minutes. Both Trump and the Democrats have agreed there is a crisis at the border.

"New captain" Ryan Saunders has Timberwolves' trust in interim role
Assistant coach Ryan Saunders will assume the role of the interim head coach for the remainder of the 2018-19 season. It will be the first time we get to see how the team's offense, defense and rotations will differ from Thibodeau.


It's unclear exactly what impact Trump's speech (and the Democratic rebuttal) will have on actual policy.

Trump's narrative about the southern border "really is fiction".

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway says the group had a "robust exchange" and 'questions were asked and answered'.

Schumer called on Trump to "separate the shutdown from arguments over border security", and let lawmakers pass "bipartisan legislation to reopen the government while allowing debate over border security to continue".

Jeff Bezos , Amazon overlord and world's richest man , has announced he and his wife are getting divorced after 25 years together. It also acknowledges that the decision to divorce comes "after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation".


Over on ABC, Jimmy Kimmel discussed whether it was acceptable for the networks to "give the President a forum to lie to us on television".

Seth Meyers, the host of "Late Night" on NBC, took a position about this on his show Monday night.

Trump will visit the Capitol on Wednesday to meet with Senate Republicans, and has invited Democratic and Republican congressional leaders to return to the White House to meet with him later that day.

Smith's analysis drew an angry response on Twitter from many of Fox News' conservative fans.

Following Tuesday night's coverage, the liberal watchdog organization Media Matters for America said the network fact-checking was ineffective.
