The ‘Daily Show’ Tries To Fact Check Trump But It Sends Desi Lydic into a ‘Rage Quit’ (Uproxx)

It’s easy fact checking Donald Trump, but it can’t be easy wrapping your head around what you’re fact checking. The things that come out of his mouth are almost always fabricated, confused and/or dangerous, which probably means fact checkers spend most of their time with their head in their hands, or quietly eating soup while wrapped in a blanket. Our hearts go out to them.

The Daily Show is the latest outlet to feel the pain of a Trump fact-check, and it has sent Desi Lydic over the edge. She’s done with Trump. She can’t take it anymore. Like a 13-year-old playing Halo with a wonky thumbstick, she rage quits.
