I think you can assertively tell someone that they are factually wrong, but walk away from the argument. They will think they've won, but you are not validating them. It's more about keeping your own sanity. I get it, I have gotten sucked into many unfruitful arguments.

Someone already mentioned here, but one of my favourite quotes is by Mark Twain, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”
