WaPo fact checks the SOTU speech, and it is LONG!

And this one really got me, considering how much we have worried about it. And rightly, of course!

“In the Senate, we have confirmed a record number of 187 new federal judges.”
It’s not a record. Trump has a long way to go to have appointed the most federal judges. Reagan has the record, with 383, followed by Bill Clinton with 378 and then Obama with 329. Through Jan. 18, 187 judges nominated by Trump have been confirmed by the Senate. (The Trump campaign notes that Trump ranks second in terms of judges confirmed at this point in his presidency, after Jimmy Carter, and first in appeals court judges.)
