New Image of Founding Fathers - but not of our Republic

Fiorina: I will not be bullied into telling the truth. Verified by Andy Borowitz

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—Calling criticism of her misrepresentations about Planned Parenthood “typical left-wing tactics,” the Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said, on Sunday, “I will not be bullied into telling the truth.”

Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” the former Hewlett-Packard C.E.O. denied that spreading misinformation about Planned Parenthood was “in any way incendiary,” but added, “What is truly incendiary is demanding that someone who is seeking the highest office in the land stop lying.”

Fiorina noted that many of her rivals for the Republican nomination—including Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and Ted Cruz—had successfully used lying as a key element of their campaign strategies. “All I am trying to do is level the playing field,” she said.
Additionally, she argued that she had not singled out Planned Parenthood as the subject of falsehoods during her campaign. “Look at the things I have said about my tenure at Hewlett-Packard,” she said. “I have steadfastly avoided facts from day one.”

Striking a defiant note, she said that she refused to allow a “tiny cabal of left-wing truth-fetishists” break her resolve. “Anyone who thinks I’m going to start suddenly telling the truth doesn’t know what Carly Fiorina is made of,” she said.

Trump’s Focus on Muslims Distracting Him from Campaign Against Mexicans, Supporters Fear / Borowitz

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—There are growing fears among supporters of the Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump that his new focus on Muslims is distracting him from his campaign against Mexicans.

After the billionaire said he would consider shutting down mosques if he were President, supporters expressed concern that such signature proposals as a wall with Mexico and mass deportations were being lost in the shuffle.

Carol Foyler, who viewed a recent Trump appearance on television, said that she was “alarmed” to hear him talk about closing mosques “without mentioning the wall with Mexico even once.” “I just worry, I guess, that with all of this talk about Muslims he’s really forgetting about Mexicans,” she said. “It feels kind of like a bait-and-switch.”
Another Trump supporter, Harland Dorrinson, agreed. “Shutting down the mosques is a great idea, sure, but he shouldn’t do that if it’s going to divert resources from forcibly deporting eleven million immigrants,” he said. “I would be very sad to see that happen.”

But Tracy Klugian, a die-hard Trump volunteer who is working for his campaign in Iowa, called such criticism of her candidate “misguided.” “You don’t get to be a successful businessman like Donald Trump without being able to multitask,” she said.

After today's developments:
Borowitz tweet today:
Dear Donald Trump: Heard your idea about registering Muslims and tracking their movements. You might want to tweak it a little so it doesn't sound EXACTLY like something the Nazis did.

The NRA is beginning to connect some dots. Cartoon image to prove it.

On this day, when posturing Republican wannabes try to upstage the POTUS

How about posting some photos you did not use for the subject "Eleven"

I was (still am) all over the map with the topic, and maybe by posting a few we did not use we can inspire others to find an entry:

Wet Feet

A Portrait of the Wall builder and Authority on how to solve the problem of Immigration

If we could properly zero in to see the little bitty photos it is made up from, you would see thousands and thousands of shots of the pride of male anatomy, also called "Dicks".
