'Good Evening,' Says President Trump, Drawing Immediate Flurry Of Fact Checks

January 9th, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C.—As President Trump began addressing the nation Tuesday evening, he said, "Good evening" to the camera, drawing an immediate flurry of fact checks from publications all across the country.


The New York Times pointed out that the meaning of the phrase was vague and that Trump could have meant any one of several things by the statement. Finally, they concluded that since Trump stubbornly insists on existing in our plane of reality, the statement that the evening was "good" in any way couldn't possibly be true:





CNN, meanwhile, fact-checked the concept of "good" altogether. "Hold it right there," one anchor said, pausing the broadcast to interject his comments. "What is this hateful, absolute, objective idea of good that Trump's talking about here? Correct me if I'm wrong, Brian, but it seems to me that Trump is advocating for a national religion and the execution of all Muslims with this statement."


"This is a very grave day in America," he added solemnly. "We rate this statement 'Pants on Fire.'"

Love the Bee! And it's clear the author is a Tolkien fan. Remember Gandalf's response when Bilbo wished him "Good Morning"?


"What do you mean?" he [Gandalf] said. "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?" "All of them at once," said Bilbo.


And I'm a huge Tolkien fan, too!
