Fox News Fact Checks Sarah Huckabee Sanders On Bogus 'Terrorists Coming Across Mexican Border' Lie

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders found out today what it's like to be interviewed by a journalist who's done his homework.

In an interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace, Sanders attempted to push the false claim about terrorists being caught at the southern border on Fox News Sunday, but Chris Wallace just happened to have the facts at hand.

“I know the statistic, I didn’t know if you were going to use it, but I studied up on this,” Wallace said. “Do you know what those 4,000 people come where they are captured? Airports.”

“Not always,” Sanders tried.

“Airports. The state department says there hasn’t been any terrorists found coming across the southern border,” continued Wallace. “But they’re not coming across the southern border, Sarah, they’re coming and they’re being stopped at airports.”

“They’re coming a number of ways, they’re certainly, I’m not disagreeing with you that they’re coming through airports,” lamely offered Sanders.

You have to wonder how different would the state of the nation be if every journalist was prepared with facts when interviewing politicians?
