And the 'Biggest Pinocchios of 2014' Go To…
The Washington Post has released its annual roundup of the year’s “biggest Pinocchios.”
One of the biggest Pinocchios of 2014, according to the article, is President Barack Obama’s repeated claim that he never referred to ISIS as “JV.”
The list of top Pinocchios also includes:
- Sen. Rand Paul’s statement that John McCain met with ISIS terrorists.
- Obama’s claim that the GOP filibustered 500 pieces of legislation.
- Rep. Paul Ryan’s story about a little boy who rejected a school lunch because he wanted one in a brown paper bag.
- Alison Lundergan Grimes’ accusation that Sen. Mitch McConnell took $600,000 from anti-coal groups.
- An Agenda Project Action Fund ad, which alleged that GOP spending cuts undermined the nation’s ability to combat Ebola.
The hosts of “The Five” weighed in on their “Pinocchios of the year.”
Kimberly Guilfoyle chose the Agenda Project Action ad, listed above, while Eric Bolling’s “Pinocchio of the year” was when Hillary Clinton said that she and Bill were “dead broke” when they left the White House.
Bob Beckel said that his “Pinocchio of the year” was when John Boehner alleged that ObamaCare had resulted in a “net loss” of insured Americans.
