In a fact check about a last night’s debate, NBC is refuting Donald Trump’s claim that Hillary Clinton didn’t literally “acid wash” 33,000 emails, but used an app called “BleachBit.”
The fact check was featured in a post-debate article by NBC titled “Sixteen Fact Checks From the Second Presidential Debate” and reads:
Trump said Clinton “acid washed” her private email server. She didn’t. She used an app called Bleachbit, not a corrosive chemical.
The fact check refers to Trump’s claim in the debate that Clinton destroyed 33,000 emails after receiving a subpoena. The Clinton camp has denied the claim, but an August 2016 FBI report shows that Trump is speaking truth.
In a subreddit about the NBC fact check titled “They Just Gave Up,” Trumps supporters are up in arms about the literal interpretation of Trump’s statement.
Well obviously Trumps statement was false because Bleach is an alkaline not an acid
