Trump's Lie of the Day

Here's Trump's lie of the day.  Or, to be exact, here's the lie with which he started the day . . . no doubt, many more will follow before today is over.
Donald J. Trump‏
122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!

He took the 122 number from a Fox News broadcast, but he assumed the prisoners were released by the Obama admin, when in fact it was the Bush admin.

As of July, 122 former Guantanamo detainees were confirmed to be re-engaging in terrorism, while another 86 were suspected to be, according to the most recent Office of the Director of National Intelligence report on former Guantanamo detainees released in September.

Of those confirmed, 113 were released by former President George W. Bush and nine were released by Obama.


The disturbing thing is that Trump lying in these tweets doesn't really seem to matter to his fans.

Now there's at least one entire website dedicated to Trump's bullshit:
