Alan,

What Trump said was clearly "over the top"--an exaggeration, at best. And, it's pretty typical. Fact check people have found literally thousands of such statements, and his defenders provide your kind of apologetics to rationalize them. When confronted with contradictory evidence, Donald often doubles down--but not always. Sometimes, he reverses himself, denying he said something--even when it is quoted to him. And he's been doing it for many years.

For many of us, who've lived through generations of Donald, this is obvious.
