At his presser today, Donald Trump said that “we’re going to have a [COVID19] vaccine very soon. Maybe even before a very special day.”
Naturally, CNN’s ace fact-checking team was on it:
President Trump: "We're going to have a vaccine very soon. Maybe even before a very special day. You know what date I'm talking about"

There are five people working on these fact-checks for CNN. And between the five of them, they evidently can’t find anyone who knows what “maybe” means.

If only he had said ‘maybe’. Hey wait, he did!

Maybe that’s why he said “maybe”.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Donald Trump gives ostensible journalists plenty of material to work with. And yet, they insist on dunking on him for what he doesn’t say.
