In 2011 Jon Kyl, Republican Senator from Arizona, claimed that abortions were "well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does." After his statement caught wind in the media as being a flat out lie he backpedaled stating that his remark was "not intended to be a factual statement."

This spawned the hashtag and popular meme #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement. In similar context, whenever you or someone you know present information as a fact when it's actually a blatant lie it is appropriate to say Pulling a Jon Kyl. In reference to this notorious liar.
Guy 1: Did you hear what that senator said last night?! 50 million car accidents take place every year in this country

Guy 2: Don't listen to that garbage, he's just pulling a Jon Kyl.
