NBC’s Comical “Acid Washed” Fact-Checking Of Donald Trump

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Fact-Checking is an important part of the debating process because it supposedly reassures voters on who’s being consistent with their use of facts in their arguments. Some politicians might exaggerate a bit to push a certain argument forward, and others might just derail altogether.

NBC News did some fact-checking of their own based on some of the arguments made during last night’s the 2nd presidential debate between Donald Trump (R) and Hillary Clinton (D), but one of them is so comical that it seems to be pulled right out of an Onion article.

During the debate, Donald Trump brought up the 33,000 emails that Hillary Clinton deleted after being served with a subpoena. He said, “The thing that you should be apologizing for are the 33,000 e-mails that you deleted, and that you acid washed. And, then, the two boxes of e-mails and other things last week that were taken from an office and are now missing.”

NBC fact-checked Donald’s claim about Clinton acid washing, otherwise known as bleaching, the emails, and their conclusion was that he was wrong because she had used an app called BleachBit and not the corrosive chemical to delete the emails.

If NBC thought that what Trump meant by that was that she had physically taken out the emails from her computer and dipped them in acid, then the statement rings true. For everyone else that knew she literally hadn’t used acid, they’re left perplexed and scratching their head while analyzing the “research” NBC did to provide them with this information.
