The context was Trump’s Twitter tweet saying he would start fact-checking political journalists. This one:
I will start reviewing various political reporters etc & websites as to their professionalism & fairness—many people asking for this.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 2, 2012
Klein told Bashir that he sent a tweet to Mr. Trump offering him to fact check his work any time. This one:
Do Wonkblog! RT @realdonaldtrump: I will start reviewing various political reporters etc & websites as to their professionalism & fairness.
— Ezra Klein (@ezraklein) November 2, 2012
Then Klein opened up full throttle and called Donald Trump a “hilarious clown” who was “trolling” the American people.
Mr. Trump should start fact-checking himself. This guy puts out more false tweets than anyone I’ve ever seen other than Mitt Romney.
