Trump was “better behaved tonight but he lied more,” Dale told CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer in a post-debate analysis.
Dale noted how Trump has trotted out the same lies and falsehoods at his recent campaign rallies. They covered subjects “big and small,” the journalist noted. “Important stuff like the coronavirus pandemic, about Biden’s policies, about his own record, about Democrats’ record.”
“It was just on and on,” said Dale.
“Biden was imperfect,” he said. “There were at least a few false, misleading or lacking in context claims from him. But for a fact-checker, you’re kind of sitting there with Biden occasionally you’re like ‘oh that’s wrong.’”
“With Trump you’re like that ‘I Love Lucy’ episode in the chocolate factory, you don’t know which one to pick up because there’s so much,” he said. “And so again with this president we just see a constant barrage, incessantly, of false or misleading stuff.”
