CBS’ Scott Pelley: ‘It Has Been a Busy Day for Presidential Statements Divorced from Reality’ (Mediaite)

Scott Pelley kicked off tonight’s CBS Evening News with this pretty blunt assessment of the day’s news:

“President Trump told a U.S. military audience that there have been terrorist attacks that no one knows about because the media chooses not to report them. It has been a busy day for presidential statements divorced from reality.”

He also brought up Trump’s tweet that all negative polls are fake and recalled the president’s claim of millions of illegal votes.
