This CNN fact check of Donald Trump is breathless and brilliant
You might already know CNN’s fact-checking reporter Daniel Dale who’s previously featured in these pages.
Now he’s been analysing Trump’s latest televised ‘town hall’ and it’s fair to say he had one or two untruths to pick up on.

Yep, just the one or two.
Just listening to this is exhausting.
Did Trump say anything at all that was true last night? https://t.co/hQtm6I7b72

I noticed Dale has started talking much faster ever since his job became covering Trump’s lies.
