Politifact Says Pelosi Lied About Supreme Court Nominee Gorsuch

posted on February 4, 2017

While left-leaning website Politifact is usually fast to cover up the half-truths and prevarications of gun haters, some lies are so big that they just can’t be ignored.

A good example is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s whopper about Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s nominee to fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s vacant seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. “Gabby Giffords' group, the group for responsible solutions relating to gun safety, said that he comes down on the side of felons over gun safety,” Pelosi said on a Jan. 31 CNN town hall.

After analyzing the claim, Politifact ranked Pelosi’s claim about coming down on the side of felons “Mostly False,” noting: “Pelosi’s statement contains an element of truth, but ignores critical facts that would give a different impression.” Any bets on whether she’ll keep on spouting the same lie, even though it has been revealed as such?
