In the 887 days since he took office, the President has demonstrated a remarkable tenacity to lie about even seemingly obvious facts, despite an omnipresent and ever vigilant Fourth Estate. And despite incessant fact-checking by diligent news organizations ranging from The Washington Post to Politifact, the President appears to be winning, ironically, with a little help from the news media. And by that, I don't just mean Fox News, but all of the major cable news networks.
While the findings reflect obligatory partisan skews, it's noteworthy that even high percentages of self-declared Republicans feel the President is making them feel "concerned," "confused," "embarrassed," "exhausted," "angry," "insulted," and "frightened."
"There were thousands of people cheering," the President of the United States said during a press conference on Tuesday when he was asked by a reporter about the crowds of protesters who took to the streets in London during his trip to the U.K.. "I don't see any protests. I did see a small protest today, very small. So, a lot of it is fake news, I hate to say."
