On Monday, President Donald Trump held a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina that was jam-packed, and supporters waited in long lines during the heat to see the President.

CNN’s Brian Stelter attempted to catch President Trump in a lie, however, it was met with instant backfire.

In a tweet on Monday, “Reliable Sources” Brian Stelter took to Twitter to announce: “Trump just said there are people in line for his rally and ‘they are soaking wet.’ Per CNN’s @betsy_klein, ‘it is 88 and sunny here in Fayetteville. It has not rained here today.'”

MRCTV noted that USA Today also jumped onboard with the all’s-sunny-in-Carolina narrative, penning an entire article devoted to the topic. Here’s just a snippet of that hard-hitting exposé:

“So we have now people standing in line trying to get into the arena and I will tell you that they are soaking wet,” Trump said, according to a media pool report, during a briefing he received while aboard Air Force One headed to North Carolina.

While it’s true that it wasn’t raining in Fayetteville, NC at the time, many Twitter was quick to point out that “humidity” is what caused the supporters to be “soaking wet.” (Continued Below)

Former secret service agent, Dan Bongino responded to Stelter on Twitter: “Costanza lives such a sorry, pathetic, sheltered existence that he’s unaware sweat is liquid perspiration. What a toolbox this guy is.”

Stephanie Hamill of the Daily Caller said “@CNN should do a fact check on this and send @brianstelter outdoors in very humid, sunny 88 degree weather. My guess is he would sweat through his entire shirt and everything else in minutes.”

And the hits kept coming…

One user, Miss Lin, noted:

In fact, President Trump was scheduled to tour damage in North Carolina from hurricane Dorian and had to cancel because there were storms nearby.
