CNN’s Victor Blackwell Brings Out 3001 Gumballs to Highlight New Tally of Trump Lies


This week The Washington Post updated its list of President Trump‘s lies and misleading statements in office and brought it right up to a whopping 3001. CNN’s Victor Blackwell decided to help portray this visually this morning.

“There are really so many claims that are false or misleading statements and just downright lies,” Blackwell said, “it’s hard to keep track. But we are.”

In January, Blackwell brought out four jars of gumballs when WaPo‘s tally stood at 1950. This morning, he brought out six for the new 3001 number.

“He’s now averaging more than six lies a day,” Blackwell said. “Think of that. That’s more than some people wash their hands in a day.”
