    Cool FACT CHECK: El Paso Fire Department confirms - Donald Trump lied about his crowd size

    FACT CHECK:



    El Paso Fire Department just told us that Trump's statement about them allowing 10,000 people inside is incorrect.
    Spokesman says coliseum holds 6,500 and that is how many were allowed in building
    .

    FACT CHECK: El Paso Fire Department confirms @realDonaldTrump lied about his crowd size -- only 6,500 attended his embarrassing rally.

    Meanwhile, estimates say up to 15,000 turned out for Beto.

    How many people did Trump say attended?

    When his rally got underway, the president said that “69,000 signed up to be here. The arena holds about 8,000."

    Trump thanked the fire department for getting 10,000 people in the El Paso County Coliseum, before noting the crowd that gathered outside for his rally.

    “Tens of thousands of people are watching the screens outside,” Trump said.

    How many people did officials say attended?
    However, a fire department spokesman said 6,500 people were inside the venue and denied any special accommodations were made.

    Why Trump lies



    Why not?

    The people in this country are too lazy or stupid to investigate what the truth really is.

    Believe Trump or Fox News is the easy out and it supports some of what they don,t like and never suggests there would be any negative effect on them.

    Where has common sense gone.

    Huge news!

    Donald Trump lied!

    Ahhh...well...maybe not such huge news.

    In fact, maybe not even news.

    "Estimates?" Whose estimates as to the Beto crowd? How many were outside the arena where President Trump spoke? The fire Department only spoke of the crowd inside not outside.
