Multiple fact-checkers attempted to combat complaints this week from President Donald Trump over Democrats omitting “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance at their virtual convention, rating such charges “mostly false.”
Here’s the brief synopsis from Snopes, the same fact-checking organization that tried to bring down the satirical website Babylon Bee.
In other words, while the words “under God” were stripped from the Pledge of Allegiance on two occasions during the Democrat convention, Snopes concluded that online claims that it happened are “false” because the DNC didn’t tell them not to say the phrase.

PolitiFact followed suit.
“The DNC did not omit ‘one nation under God’ from the Pledge of Allegiance,” the left-leaning fact-checker concluded. In the next line, however, the PolitiFact “fact check” contradicts its own conclusion: “Some caucuses omitted ‘under God’ from the Pledge of Allegiance during the Democratic National Convention meetings.”
