Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
The usually whip-smart Rachel Maddow made a mind-boggling error the day after the Clinton-Trump debate. Her first 14 minutes were fine, but when she turned to fact-checking Trump, the first of the “untrue things” she chose to correct was not untrue at all. “Bill Clinton did not sign NAFTA,” Maddow said. “George H.W. Bush signed NAFTA.”
Actually, it was both. Bush signed the treaty with Canada and Mexico in December of 1992 (his final month in office), and Clinton immediately pledged not to renegotiate it. Less than a year later, on Dec. 8, 1993, Clinton signed the treaty into law. Neither signing was perfunctory or irrelevant. Both were necessary. Clinton absolutely did sign NAFTA.
Note: Maddow isn’t actually whip-smart. Merely snake-tongued.
