Oh El Trump-0, start taking your ginko biloba!

From CBS News here:

“And yet the murder rate in our country is the highest been in 47 years right? Didn’t you know that? Right. 47 years? I used to, I’d say that in a speech and everybody was surprised. Because the press doesn’t tell it like it is. It wasn’t to their advantage to say that” Mr. Trump said.

FBI statistics show the president isn’t just wrong — he has it backwards.

The fact is, the murder rate is close to the 57-year low it hit in 2014, before ticking up a bit in 2015, the most recent year of data available.

I guess this is one of them there alternative facts.
