Reply to "Say Something Completely Random And Off Topic"

More of the lies and mistruths Trump spouted last night:

Trump claimed that Biden called the military "stupid bastards". In fact, in a 2016 visit to an air base near Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Lt. Karen Johnson – a native of Wilmington, Delaware – introduced Biden to the rest of the troops. After Biden made a complimentary remark about Johnson and the troops didn't applaud her, Biden made a joke about them being "stupid bastards" and that they must be a "dull bunch". “Vice President Biden was jokingly encouraging the audience to clap for an airwoman on the stage, and a number of service members can be seen laughing and smiling at the comment. Seconds before, he praised them for 'the incredible sacrifices (they) make for our country,’” Bates told The Daily Beast.

Trump claimed that Biden said he attended Delaware State U, an all-black school. In fact, Biden said he got his "start at DSU", referring to the support he received from the school when he announced his bid for the U.S. Senate on the DSU campus in 1972.

Trump claimed that Biden once called African-Americans "super-predators". Not true. It was Hillary who used the term in reference to a crime bill in 1996. Clinton said: "We need to take these people on. They are often connected to big drug cartels, they are not just gangs of kids anymore. They are often the kinds of kids that are called super-predators - no conscience, no empathy."  Biden did say in a speech that we need to keep "predators off our streets", but there was no reference, direct or implied, to African-Americans.

Trump claimed that Hunter Biden was dishonourably discharged from the military. That's not true. 

Trump claimed his poll watchers were thrown out of a polling station. Not true. They were not allowed into a satellite election station. Philadelphia law does not allow for poll watchers to enter satellite elections stations, only polling stations.

Trump said he's "all for electric cars. I've given big incentives for electric cars." That's false. He is trying to eliminate tax incentives for consumers who buy them. 

Trump said Obama "left me 128 judges to full. They left 128 openings." The only reason this happened is because the Republican-led Senate refused to confirm Obama's nominees – including of course, Judge Merrick Garland.

And then, of course, there were Trump's many lies last night about the integrity of mail-in ballots.
