Using Facts

Just Watch Folks’

“At a campaign rally on Friday, Donald Trump warned that Hillary Clinton is scheming to ‘rig the debate by using facts’ in their first televised face-off, on Monday.

“‘You just watch, folks,’ Trump told supporters in Toledo, Ohio. ‘Crooked Hillary is going to slip in little facts all night long, and that’s how she’s going to try to rig the thing.’” 

—Andy Borowitz, comedian, “Trump Warns That Clinton Will Rig Debate by Using Facts,” The New Yorker, Sept. 23, 2016
