Ever one to focus in on the hardest-hitting facts, CNN’s Brian Stelter attempted Tuesday to catch President Trump in a lie regarding his Monday rally in Fayetteville, N.C.

And suffice it to say, it didn’t go so well.

In a tweet Tuesday morning, everybody’s favorite “Reliable Source” blasted out this revelation:

USA Today also jumped onboard with the all’s-sunny-in-Carolina narrative, penning an entire articledevoted to the topic. Here’s just a snippet of that hard-hitting exposé:

“So we have now people standing in line trying to get into the arena and I will tell you that they are soaking wet," Trump said, according to a media pool report, during a briefing he received while aboard Air Force One headed to North Carolina.

However, the weather in Fayetteville wasn’t stormy leading up to the rally, according to reporters who were in attendance at the rally. 

While it’s true that it wasn’t raining in Fayetteville at the time, many Twitter users were quick to point out that something rather uncanny happens to the human body in nearly 90-degree weather in the southern mid-Atlantic…


According to the Weather Channel, temperatures in Fayetteville reached over 90 degrees on Monday with 71 percent humidity.
