NBC reported Monday that, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection figures, only six people had been detained during a six-month period.

“Maybe they were rounding up to the nearest 4000?”

That was MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s sardonic reply to reports that President Donald Trump’s administration had wildly overstated the number of known or suspected terrorists stopped at the U.S.-Mexico border last year.

This is markedly less than the “nearly 4,000” claimed by the Trump White House over the weekend.

Others on Twitter, including lawmakers, joined Maddow in condemning the lie:
