So CNN is carrying the orange idiot's lying speech.

Just wow.
Was watching Alex on MSNBC and briefly switched over to CNN and that crap was on. Why are they even carrying him? None of the big networks are - not ABC, not CBS or NBC. SMH.

Farewell To The 2022 Class Of MAGA Weirdos

(HuffPost) 2good + 2be = 4gotten.

People in politics like to use the term “candidate quality” to diplomatically critique poor candidates. Even by Trump GOP standards, candidate quality was sorely lacking this election cycle. That’s why we’ll never forget the MAGA Class of 2022. Don’t ever change!

Most Likely To Never Again Set Foot In The State Where They Ran
Celebrity surgeon Mehmet Oz had a hard time convincing voters that he was actually from the state he hoped to represent in Washington. The GOP’s Senate nominee in Pennsylvania did not help his case when, the weekend before the election, he urged voters to “contact 10 people before the Steelers game” — although no such game was happening that weekend. At least this blunder didn’t involve a “Wegner’s.”

Most Likely To Have One Or 20 Skeletons In Their Closet
Things always seemed to be getting worse for Herschel Walker. The Senate hopeful and former star running back would routinely make head-scratching comments about evolution, pollution and pretty much anything else under the sun. It was nothing, however, compared to the jaw-dropping revelations from Walker’s personal life, which included domestic violence allegations and two previously undisclosed children.

Most Likely To Parlay This Election Into A Newsmax Show
Kari Lake’s announcement that she was running for Arizona governor was about as unsubtle as taking a sledgehammer to a television — which is exactly how the ex-newscaster made her political ambitions known in a video. That theme has been consistent throughout her campaign. Lake has taken a sledgehammer to everything in her way: her old job, the media, the GOP establishment. And now she’s smashed her way to a near-win in a race against Democrat Katie Hobbs that’s still too close to call.

How are you? Are you safe? God bless you. Said Speaker Pelosi to VP Pence on Jan 6.

Watching the documentary clips on msnbc. Nancy Pelosi is the one who cares enough to ask if he was okay. Not his own president. What a psycho piece of garbage trump is, he really wanted his veep dead or at least injured that day.

The 11th Circuit really came through for us! Trump loses in classified docs appeal.

While we knew that the amazing and wonderful Judge Robin Rosenbaum (Obama appointee and a hero to us here in Florida) would do the right thing, kinda surprised the other two trump appointed judges Grant and Brasher voted the same. Well done! "We agree"

Ex-Trump Official Accuses Former President Of Sinister Immigration Plot

(HuffPost) Miles Taylor, a former DHS chief of staff, made the stunning disclosure on CNN amid renewed tensions over border policy.

But Miles Taylor, a former chief of staff in the DHS, said Trump, whose 2016 campaign cornerstone was to build a border wall, once took the idea of shipping migrants north to the next level.

Taylor said Trump directed officials in early 2019 to dump immigrants into Democratic cities and states. However, the president was “much more specific.”

“He wanted us to identify the murderers, the rapists and the criminals and in particular, make sure we did not incarcerate them, and we put them in those cities,” Taylor said on CNN. “It doesn’t take a lawyer or genius to recognize that this would likely be illegal to do.”

and a suspect is in custody, police say

(CNN)Salman Rushdie -- a celebrated author and winner of the world's top literary prizes whose writings generated death threats -- was attacked and apparently stabbed in the neck on stage Friday before giving a lecture at the Chautauqua Institution in western New York, State Police said.

The suspect was taken into custody by a state trooper at the event, police said. Rushdie was airlifted to a local hospital, police said. His condition is unknown. An interviewer also suffered a minor head injury, police said.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul told reporters Friday that Rushdie is "alive" and "getting the care he needs." She said a state trooper "stood up and saved his life and protected him as well as the moderator who was attacked as well.

Rushdie was being introduced at about 10:45 a.m. when the assault happened, according to a witness, who said he heard shouting from the audience. He said a man in a black shirt appeared to be "punching" the author. The witness, who was 75 feet from the stage, did not hear the attacker say anything or see a weapon. Some people in the audience ran to render aid to Rushdie while others went after the attacker, the witness said.
