Al Jazeera English host Mehdi Hasan destroyed an adviser to President Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign, Steven Rogers, by fact-checking Trump’s lies.
Hasan asked Rogers aboutTrump’s claim just before the midterm elections that people in California cities were rioting in protest of city policies.
Rogers claimed that was true because there were “street skirmishes” (not riots) in Oakland because of undocumented immigrants, but Hasan debunked him:
The spokesman for the California Police Chief’s Association says that there were no riots taking place as a result of sanctuary city policies. There were no riots, he just made it up!
Hasan also told Rogers how Trump falsely claimed that seven new steel facilities were about:
He just made it up. And he repeated it! He didn’t say it just once!
Rogers was unable to accept reality and countered that the context of Trump’s lie mattered.
