  1. Glenn Kessler ‏@GlennKesslerWP 1h1 hour ago Updated: Spicer's claim today that "tens of millions" watched online is wrong. It was 4.6 million. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2017/01/22/spicer-earns-four-pinocchios-for-a-series-of-false-claims-on-inauguration-crowd-size/?utm_term=.67664413ebd3
  2. From the March's statement of principles “Accountability and justice for police brutality” and “[dismantling] the gender and racial inequities within the criminal justice system” Freedom from sexual violence Ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution that would guarantee equal protection based on gender Affirming that all domestic and caretaking work is work, even if unpaid, and that women — especially women of color — bear the brunt of that burden “The right to organize and fight for a living minimum wage” for all workers, labor protections for undocumented and migrant workers, and “solidarity with sex workers’ rights movements” Comprehensive reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, and immigrant and refugee rights
  3. A couple come to mind, although I am sure there are other examples. He was talking up C.J. Anderson before anybody else, when they guy was 4th string RB and I picked him on waiver wire in a couple of my dynasty leagues. Going back some years, he mentioned that Peyton Hillis looked the best in training camp of all the RBs in Denver, which did not reflect the depth chart or conventional wisdom, but proved to be accurate.

NBC Nightly News ‏@NBCNightlyNews 19m19 minutes ago On Saturday, Spicer claimed the Trump Inauguration had largest audience ever, "both in person and around the globe." http://nbcnews.to/2k1NJdw
  5. From Snopes: http://www.snopes.com/2017/01/22/womens-march-dumped-signs/ Women's March Protesters Dumped Their Signs? A commonly shared photograph of abandoned signs from the Women's March on Washington lacks some context. [...] Although the photograph displayed above does show thousands of signs carried by Women's March protesters that were dumped on the ground and left behind, it's typically shared without a few key pieces of context: 1) The signs in the picture weren't just tossed willy-nilly onto the ground; they were deliberately abandoned at that location — outside one of the entrances to the Trump International Hotel in Washington — as part of the protest: 2) The hotel site was already politically controversial for reasons independent of the Women's March on Washington: [...] 3) Piling refuse in one location generally makes it easier for clean-up crews to do their job (although that factor wasn't why the protesters were dumping their signs outside the Trump hotel). Regardless, one might fairly argue that a form of protest involving the dumping of litter on the ground for others to clean up is an unseemly one. However, the National Park Service noted that, overall, the crowds at both events (i.e., the inauguration and the Women's March) were "tidier" than those of previous years:
  6. Never. And it is appalling that about 60% find it acceptable behavior. Punching someone because you disagree with their views is not considered a hate crime in any jurisdiction. No it wouldn't because it requires more than a physical assault to qualify as a hate crime, usually some sort accompanying epithet. And what do you propose he do about it?
  7. Not exactly worthless, but quite often of limited value. League context is not required, but can be quite helpful in making some sense as to what the parties were thinking. If that information is missing one is who is opining on the trade can be operating in a bit of a vacuum. A trade that looks good or bad in theory, may not be so if one is privy to the background and details. That is not to say that everyone who posts a trade in this thread needs to give detailed information. But, in theory, the more we know, the better our feedback should be. Just my
  8. If you are the template, we are in serious trouble.

  10. He didn't get his facts wrong, he flat out lied. And this morning Joy Reid on her show called him out on it. http://www.rawstory.com/2017/01/watch-joy-reid-eviscerate-sean-spicer-how-are-we-supposed-to-trust-anything-you-say-at-all/ Watch Joy Reid eviscerate Sean Spicer: ‘How are we supposed to trust anything you say at all?’ SNBC host Joy Reid took Trump Press Secretary Sean Spicer to the woodshed Sunday morning, breaking down the blatant falsehoods he made during a controversial and much-criticized appearance before the media late Saturday. While much of the criticism on Sunday turned to Donald Trump’s senior counsel, Kellyanne Conway, for defending Spicer, the AM Joy host reminded viewers that it was Spicer who turned the new president’s first complete day in office into a master class in creating needless controversy over trivial matters. Using aerial photos from both Trump’s Friday inauguration and ex-President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration as well as official numbers from local government agencies on Metro ridership and television ratings, Reid went point-by-point over Spicer’s claim it was the “most viewed inauguration ever.'” “You don’t even need to just trust your eyes, there’s also this,” Reid stated. “Numbers. According to the D.C. Metro as reported by the Washington Post, ‘570,557 took trips on the system throughout the entire day on Inauguration Day.’ Okay? The system saw 1.1 million trips on the same day in 2009. The number of television viewers has also dropped, according to Neilson from 2009, a 20 percent drop — apples to apples.” “In other words, Mr. Spicer, not the ‘largest number of people who viewed an inaugural, period,'” she lectured, mocking his use of “period” when he bullied reporters on Saturday. “Not even close. And if you would lie to our faces about something that is as ultimately trivial as how many people watched your boss’ inaugural, how are we supposed to trust you when you walk out on that podium and give some grave and important statement about the nation’s national security? How are we supposed to trust anything that you say at all?”
  11. Don't believe everything someone posts on the internet.
  12. No, he would probably have chastised them for not protesting apartheid in South Africa, telling them it was much worse than segregation in the South.
  13. Perhaps this might help explain their motives to you: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/womens-march-london-donald-trump-protest-trafalgar-square-inauguration-washington-dc-a7539636.html Women's March: 100,000 protest in London against Donald Trump ‘We’re worried about what Trump’s election says about the state of the world,’ say protesters [...] The marches welcome protesters of all genders and say their mission statement is to take a stand against growing right-wing political sentiment in all its forms, including homophobia, transphobia, anti-Muslim bigotry, misogyny, class prejudice and racism. Throngs of demonstrators at the London event marched from Grosvenor Square in Mayfair, past the US embassy and onto Trafalgar Square. Many bore placards highlighting Mr Trump’s misogynistic comments, allegations of racism or his refutation of climate change.
  14. Which is why he keeps bringing it up. That makes sense.
