Fox host calls Trump's lie-filled press conference “an amazing example of democracy in action”

Fox News host Dana Perino concluded that President Donald Trump's unscheduled press conference, where he lied to reporters multiple times, was “an amazing example of democracy in action.” Trump also responded to a question about his campaign being subpoenaed by lawyers representing a woman who says he sexually assaulted her by saying: “It's totally fake news. Just fake. It's made-up stuff.”

From the October 16 edition of Fox News' The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino:
