The president is currently on stage at a rally in North Carolina, and telling the assembled crowd that even though their state is probably set to be hit the hardest in the mainland by Hurricane Dorian, “you can take it,” adding, “you’ll be back sooner and better than ever.”
CNN’s #Sharpiegate expert Brian Stelter was on hand, though, to catch Donald Trump in another lie:
Trump just said there are people in line for his rally and "they are soaking wet." Per CNN's @betsy_klein, "it is 88 and sunny here in Fayetteville. It has not rained here today."

The fact-checkers are one it:
Trump likes to talk about the hardships his supporters will endure to get into one of his rallies. This evening, it is nonexistent rain. https://t.co/pa6mwt2jSH

Huh. How could they possibly be wet in 88-degree weather?
Is it possible he meant sweating from standing in the hot sun the whole time, ya dumb bastard?

Stand outside in 88 degrees with high humidity and show us how easy it is to stay dry, Brian https://t.co/MsdDAWGHrw

No one wants to see that.
You think Baked Tater is ever in an environment without AC? Not a chance.

It's easy to spot a person who has never done anything outside. Put me outside in 88 degree, humid weather and I'd be soaking wet in about 10 minutes. https://t.co/5sjFXDqA8P

You’re a moron Brian.
If (big IF) you’ve ever stood in 88 degrees in humidity you’d be “soaking wet”. https://t.co/9COsupQSPB

These people lecture you about climate and don’t even know what it’s like to be outside in hot, humid weather. https://t.co/AGP8noHaoX

To be perfectly honest, 88 on a summer day in North Carolina, I’d be soaking wet with sweat. https://t.co/x4YHrH4Okj

Hillary passed out and got shoved into a van like a sack of potatoes on low humidity 70 degree day in early September.

Dude, settle down with the TDS stuff, it's making you even sadder than you appear. Maybe they're soaking wet because of the ridiculous humidity down there? I know I get soaking wet when outside on a really humid day. https://t.co/BqXdK9ERp7
