President Trump had a rally in North Carolina tonight, and during his speech he again cited Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s previous comments about what the Democrats stand for when it comes to abortion. Trump accurately summed up what Northam said in a radio interview, but Politifact wasn’t having any of that, and reiterated a previous ruling:
Trump says VA gov Ralph Northam talked about “after the baby was born the Dr will talk to the mother and make a decision about whether the baby lives.” We rated his similar claim about abortion False. https://t.co/Z0um1PLY1j pic.twitter.com/GkBFqEHxX4

Ralph Northam: “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” https://t.co/TsG8dOnW3i

In their story explaining the “false” rating, Politifact twists itself into a pretzel to avoid saying Trump’s accurate.

It must feel good for the Dems to know that many times no matter what happens Politifact will have their backs.
