‘Daily Show’ Fact-Checks Republican Debate ‘Facts’ (VIDEO)

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Correspondent Desi Lydic kept presidential candidates Carly Fiorina, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Donald Trump honest with her recurring segment “What The Actual Fact?” on Wednesday night’s episode of “The Daily Show.”

During Tuesday’s debate in Las Vegas, Christie said he would be a friend to the Jordanians, Lydic said.

“Chris Christie says will stand across from King Hussein of Jordan and say, ‘I will stand with you,’ ” Lydic said. “And King Hussein will say, ‘Thank you, but I’ve been dead since 1999.’ “
