Unless Democrats can get organized, he's likely to be POTUS for another 4 years.
Watch the primaries. It is still 1.5 years to the next election.

That ought to get them shaking in their boots.

It's got to be fake news since we all know that the "cocked and loaded" stable genius would never make a mistake like that.

Same name, different middle name....


"Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (current Supreme leader)" vs. "Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (dead supreme leader)"

Default Hate Crime Hoaxes Are More Common Than You Think

not surprised.

Quote:
More incidents followed, and Mr. Reilly’s skepticism grew. “This phenomenon of fake hate crimes did not appear to be small-scale or regionally based,” he writes. A gay pastor in Texas accused a Whole Foods store of selling him a cake with a slur written in icing. The store produced video evidence that the pastor was lying. A white woman in Oregon disfigured her own face with acid and claimed a black man had attacked her. Later, she admitted fabricating the entire story. After signs that read “blacks only” and “whites only” were found at bathroom entrances on the University at Buffalo campus in upstate New York, a black graduate student confessed to posting them.

Mr. Reilly eventually compiled a database of 346 hate-crime allegations and determined that less than a third were genuine.

-snip-

. But Mr. Reilly has a larger point to make. The Smollett case isn’t an outlier. Increasingly, it’s the norm. And the media’s relative lack of interest in exposing hoaxes that don’t involve famous figures is a big part of the problem.

Default have liberals ever not fallen for obvious fake assault claims?

Duke Lacrosse
UVA "Jackie"
Mattress girl
Christine Blasey Ford
Julie Swetnik
Jussie Smollet
E. Jean Carroll.




luckily we have conservatives who don't immediately jump to conclusions and determine how valid the stories are unlike the liberals who want to burn people at the stake at the very moment
