Talk in Trump's tweets tells whether tale is true: Code can mostly spot Prez lies from wording

Re: Ignorance can be very powerful

Only 30% were factually incorrect ? Really ?

Since they only considered falsifiable statements (having removed opinions etc. from their data set), I had a similar reaction.

But I suppose some facts are so incontrovertible that even His Highness couldn't screw them up. "It's Thursday" is hard to get THAT badly wrong, yeah?

And Trump doesn't care about the truth, he's not actively trying to lie; so I suspect some of the "facts" he just makes up out of whole cloth turn out to be correct... Stop clocks, and all that.
