To quote “don’t let the truth get in the way of lying agenda” – Cankles.
Hillary Clinton got caught misleading the public by tweeting a misleading statistic in the aftermath of the deadly school shooting this week in Florida. She tweeted a claim that there have been “over 230” school shootings since the Sandy Hook shooting, which occurred in 2012.
The statistic comes from the gun control group Everytown.
This week we lost 17 Americans in Parkland – the deadliest school shooting since Sandy Hook in 2012. Since then, 438 people have been shot and 138 killed in over 230 school shootings. That’s 5 school shootings every month, 16 of which classify as “mass shootings.”

Via The Daily Caller: “The statistic is misleading because it lumps in the discharge of all firearms in or around a school in that time period. The accidental discharge of legal firearms, shootings where no one was injured or present at the school and suicides all are included in the statistic. There have been 25 fatal school shootings since Columbine.
The Washington Post critiqued the “dubious” claim this week, along with the misleading statistic that there have been 18 school shootings in 2018.
“Since 2013,” the organization says on its website, “there have been nearly 300 school shootings in America — an average of about one a week.”
But since Everytown began its tracking, it has included these dubious examples — in August 2013, a man shot on a Tennessee high school’s property at 2 a.m.; in December 2014, a man shot in his car late one night and discovered the next day in a Pennsylvania elementary school’s parking lot; in August 2015, a man who climbed atop the roof of an empty Texas school on a Sunday morning and fired sporadically; in January 2016, a manin an Indiana high school parking lot whose gun accidentally went off in his glove box, before any students had arrived on campus; in December 2017, two teens in Washington state who shot up a high school just before midnight on New Year’s Eve, when the building was otherwise empty.”
Don’t let facts interrupt a Democrats rant… Hillary has a right to make up her own facts just like all the other Democrats, NYT, WaPo etc. Because she says it, it must be true. Unfortunately, a good number of Americans still believe in her rhetoric. So sad!
They must wake up and understand that Hillary Clinton is so used to not telling the truth that it just comes naturally to her. She is still lying and will keep on lying until the day she dies.
