Donald Trump spoke today at the March for Life, where he said that Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam “stated that he would execute a baby after birth.” Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher called that “a dangerous lie,” “perhaps the most inflammatory lie.”

But the real lie is coming from media firefighters like Christopher who refuse to acknowledge that Donald Trump accurately characterized what Northam actually said.
“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.” – Gov. Northam’s quote, word for word https://t.co/IJcIAHnZko

What a garbage post.
“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…”
Listen better, @Mediaite. https://t.co/4Iu1bzaBcU

Effectively, Donald Trump’s characterization of Northam’s words was correct.
It’s true though

It’s not a lie if it’s true.
