Type: ExaggerationsSep 06 2018 Severity:
Targeted: Maxine Waters
President Trump attended a rally to support Matt Rosendale, a candidate for the Montana Senate. Later in the speech, Trump bashed democrats and singled out Maxine Waters. He exaggerated her position to maximize the impact as he demonized the Democratic party. He said that she was the "new leader in the party." She might have been a ranking member in the House Financial Services Committee, and Cheif deputy whip, but was not the "new leader" of the Democratic party.
