Donald Trump, Jr. speaking with attendees at the Culture War tour at the University Center for the Arts at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado on Oct. 22, 2019.

Only one of the 10 statements fact-checked on the first page of Donald Trump Jr.’s Politifact page was given a green light (three of ‘em were rated “Pants On Fire” by the nonpartisan website).

The lies, naturally, are not stopping the offspring of the president from stumping for daddy this weekend in Tampa during the launch of what his campaign is calling the “Fighters Against Socialism Bus Tour.”

UPDATE: Well, the lies couldn't stop Jr., but daddy getting coronavirus did. The Times Steve Contorno says "all events involving the president's children have been temporarily postponed."

A campaign email sent today says that Jr.—along with the UFC’s Jorge Masvidal and Miami businessman Maximo Alvarez—will appear at a bus tour kickoff event at Tampa Convention Center, located at 333 S. Franklin St. in downtown, on Sat. Oct. 3 at 11 a.m.

General admission spots to hear Don. Jr. sniffle through his speech are available online, and a website says, “You may only register up to (2) tickets per mobile number per event. All tickets are subject to first come first serve basis.”

Just bring your sunglasses in case the lights blast off the boy’s sweaty head.
