Trump gave a speech of lies based on Republican conspiracies, conservative media tall tales, and Fox News. Trump played to the angry and frightened base of the Republican Party. His lies are only convincing to those who want to be fooled. Facts have no place in the current Republican Party, and GOP voters have rewarded Trump’s superior disregard for truth with the party’s presidential nomination. Thanks to the early leaking of Trump's speech transcript, it was easy for fact checkers to pre-debunk Donald Trump's acceptance speech lies.
