One of the most annoying habits at PolitiFact is the tendency to treat standard political rhetoric as some kind of falsehood. Take Congressman Jody Hice (R-Georgia), who tweeted on November 12 about the Democrats, “If they truly wanted unity, they wouldn’t have spent 4 years refusing to acknowledge Trump’s 2016 victory.”
Anyone who watches politics knows Hice’s meaning. Democrats perpetually suggested Donald Trump won the election through collusion with a foreign power, the Russians. The cloud of a criminal collusion hung over most of his presidency, and then transformed into an impeachment crusade based on communications he had with the government of Ukraine. In short, Democrats (and their media allies) seemed dedicated to ending the Trump presidency before it even got started.
Democrats also railed against Trump for losing the popular vote, but winning through the Electoral College, and suggested the Electoral College should be scrapped.
