Juan Williams is a liberal contributor on the FOX News channel and a regular member of the panel show “The Five.”
During a recent episode, Juan denied that the left wing riots over the last year even happened.
He seems to live in an alternate reality.

Fox News’ Juan Williams Falsely Claimed Republicans Lied About Cities Burning From BLM Riots
Fox News political analyst Juan Williams, co-host of “The Five,” said Wednesday it is a lie “that cities burned last summer.”
“I wish there were people on the right who were willing to say we’ve got a problem with our extreme right, the people who were saying all those awful things before the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol,” Williams said. “The people who want to put out lies like, ‘Oh yeah, the cities burned last summer.’ I think it’s important that people who are honest in American politics be able to hold honest discussions without allowing the extremists to set the agenda.”
Fox News co-host Katie Pavlich pushed back on Williams’ comments on the Capitol breach, noting, “I think it’s clear a number of Republicans across the board came out against what happened on Jan. 6 while it was happening.”
Brian Kilmeade called out Williams for his erroneous statement. “By the way, Juan, the cities did burn, if you count Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, Seattle, and Portland, but besides that, I think it was a pretty good summer,” Kilmeade said.
“That’s not true,” Williams responded.

Has Juan been living under a rock for the last year or is he just a liar?
