PolitiFact comes to Kamala Harris' rescue after she said that hurricane relief resources should be based on equity

PolitiFact has a new game going. It used to be that the “fact-checkers” would put in some effort to spin things in the Democrats’ favor. They’re tending not to do that anymore — instead, they’re relying on tweets from random people and putting those under the microscope. For example, PolitiFact said that Venezuelan migrants, having spent less than two days on Martha’s Vineyard, voluntarily got on buses to Joint Base Cape Cod, which is a designated emergency shelter, and the military wasn’t involved in the move. Thus, PolitiFact rated “false” an Instagram post claiming the military “deported” the migrants. In short, search nobodies on Instagram and Twitter until you find the one you can pick apart to fit the foregone conclusion. OK, so they weren’t “deported” — but how was the military not involved if they opened their gates to the buses?

Now PolitiFact is coming to the rescue of Vice President Kamala Harris, who told actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas at the Democratic National Committee Women’s Leadership Forum that equity would play a part in Hurricane Ian recovery efforts, as poor communities and communities of color are hardest hit.

No, she didn’t say that, says PolitiFact.

Why the need to walk it back — every week with this administration? Why do we always need “fact-checkers” to clarify what the nation’s leaders said on video?

Damn … we must have hit a nerve:
