When confronted with the fact that Donald Trump falsely accused NBC host and Monday night’s debate moderator Lester Holt of being Democrat, his campaign manager Kellyanne Conway insisted on MSNBC’s Morning Joe that Trump didn’t lie, he just spoke without knowing the truth.
“He said Lester Holt was a Democrat. Lester Holt is a Republican. How could he say such a thing that just black-and white factually incorrect?” asked guest and Bloomberg Politics host Mark Halperin. “I don’t know that he knew what Lester Holt’s voter registration is,” Conway said.
“Without knowing then, he asserted he was a Democrat?” Halperin asked. “First of all, if you tell me the media are not overly populated with Democrats, that’s false,” Conway argued.
