  1. Matt OswaltVerified account‏@MattOswaltVA Feb 23 CPAC: "Milo, you dishonor our cause." CPAC: "Mr. Spencer, racism is not welcome here." CPAC: "Mr. Bannon, here's your drink ticket."
  2. J.C. Penney will close 140 stores - 6,000 employees will be affected. Think Trump will take credit for that? http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/penney-close-140-stores-nationwide-article-1.2981205?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
  3. Not a shred of proof about that, as you full well know.
  4. Who knows? Maybe it was because they didn't cover the 3 million illegal undocumented voters here in California.
  5. Correct: White House blackballs news outlets that are breaking stories on Trump's ties to Russia

  8. That is irrelevant and doesn't change the fact that the confirmation process was in an election year when Reagan was a lame duck, just like Obama.
  9. Again, not true. Democrats confirmed Reagan choice Anthony Kennedy by a 97-0 vote in Reagan's last year in office (see above post) And some hypothetical that Biden mentioned and was never really taken seriously by Senate Democrats is not proof that the Democrats would have done it if situation was reversed.
  10. And Reagan's nomination of Anthony Kennedy was approved in his last year, which was an election year. http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/justice-kennedys-confirmation-debunks-key-gop-talking-point Justice Kennedy’s confirmation debunks key GOP talking point Soon after Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s death was announced, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said in a statement, “The fact of the matter is that it’s been standard practice over the last 80 years to not confirm Supreme Court nominees during a presidential election year.” The fact of the matter is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee should have done his homework before getting this wrong. The “80 years” talking point spread like wildfire in Republican circles – it was repeated by Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio during Saturday night’s debate – to the point that the GOP has convinced itself that at no point in the modern era has the Senate confirmed a Supreme Court justice in an election year. About 14 justices were confirmed in election years, and perhaps the most pertinent example is Justice Anthony Kennedy. As the Washington Post’s E.J. Dionne noted this morning: A Senate controlled by Democrats confirmed President Reagan’s nomination of Anthony Kennedy on a 97 to 0 vote in February 1988, which happened to be an election year. Yes, in Reagan’s eighth year, nine months before Election Day 1988, the Democratic-led Senate confirmed Kennedy with ease.
  11. 2008 to 2016: Any Obama criticism = thoughtful and valid commentary 2017: Any Trump criticism = hysterical, outrage or fake outrage
  12. No, throwing something at an elderly person would be classified as a misdemeanor: https://www.felonyflorida.com/assault-or-battery-on-a-person-over-65-years-of-age-florida-stat.html To be considered a battery on an elderly person he would have had to have touched him or struck him with something and that would be a felony:
  13. Probably, as with the Pizzagate supposedly related emails there are probably a lot of things that are ambiguous and capable of another interpretation, such as the Podesta email where he talked about "Opening a hot dog stand in Hawaii" - that was jumped as code for saying it was either a gay brothel or an internet sex ring trafficking in underage boys. Truth was Podesta has had a long running joke with friends going back at least a decade about retiring to Hawaii to run a hot dog stand.
  14. Perhaps you qualified it by "current version" however the launch of MSNBC predated Fox News launch, so its inception couldn't have been a liberal's idea of Fox. MSNBC was launched on July 15, 1996 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MSNBC Fox News was launched on October 7, 1996 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fox_News
