Trump campaign spreads blatant lie that Rep. Clyburn said the president should be hanged

President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is spreading a blatant lie that Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) called for the president to be hanged.

A tweet sent out by the Trump War Room Twitter account claims that “The number 3 House Democrat, James Clyburn, just said this about President Trump: ‘Hang him!’ This hatred and anger is out of control!”

However, watching the video of Clyburn reveals he said no such thing.

Rather, the video in question shows a CNN interview in which Clyburn describes the kind of trial that he believes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will set up that will be designed to deliver a quick acquittal.
