If there’s anyone who knows Donald Trump’s darkest legal secrets, it’s New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is currently in charge of the legal case against the president for campaign finance violations and, potentially, tax fraud. On Tuesday night, James live-tweeted her thoughts in response to Trump’s most outrageous lies.
Trump insisted during the debate that he and the Republican Party, who have worked endlessly to undermine the Affordable Care Act that gave millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions the opportunity to purchase affordable healthcare for the first time, are working hard to protect those with pre-existing conditions. James, who has been on the front lines of the fight against Trump and the GOP in the fight to save healthcare, called Trump out on that lie.
She also clapped back at Trump’s refusal to endorse wearing a mask in public after he waved the question away and said he thinks “masks are fine” but that a lot of people say they aren’t. No legitimate scientists or doctors have said that masks are harmful or that they pose any risk to wearers, but Trump gave the conspiracy theorists a nod while vaguely saying that “many people” have said that masks are dangerous. James called Trump out on that lie, too.
Those claims, as well as several of Trump’s other statements, was worthy of a fact-check, and James was the perfect person to do so.
Twitter was in full support of the woman in charge of taking Trump down. Read some of their comments below:
