During the Trump Administration, so-called “fact-checkers” would use any difference of opinion, joke or exaggeration to scream “LIAR!!” Now that Biden is in, they seem to have decided that their function is to split more hairs than a broken comb.
Take a look at how far Politifact’s “fact-checker” had to bend over backwards to deny that Biden’s order on transgender rights in schools would allow males who “identify” as female to compete in girls’ sports.
Apparently, Biden must explicitly say that he’s ordering trans males to be allowed to compete in girls’ sports before anyone can say that will be the effect, even though the order itself states as its goal that “children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports.”
It was said that Trump supporters took him seriously but not literally, while his critics took him literally but not seriously. In the Biden era, “fact-checkers” who took every word Trump said literally are no longer even trying to be taken seriously.
