There’s a headline the left wasn’t expecting to read.

According to an MIT professor, bots helped boost Hillary Clinton’s chances of success in 2016 over candidate Donald Trump.

Talk about backfire.

Social media bots helped failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton more than President Trump during the 2016 presidential election, according to a paper from an MIT associate professor.

In a paper, Monday, Tauhid Zaman, an associate professor of operations management at the MIT Sloan School of Management, revealed that “Trump bots were far less effective at shifting people’s opinions than the smaller proportion of bots backing Hillary Clinton.”

Zaman noted: “Given much of the news reporting, we were expecting the bots to help Trump – but they didn’t. In a network without bots, the average human user had a pro-Clinton score of 42 out of 100. With the bots, though, we had found the average human had a pro-Clinton score of 58. That shift was a far larger effect than we had anticipated, given how few and unconnected the bots were. The network structure had amplified the bots’ power.”

During a recent interview, Clinton claimed all black people looked alike.

Was it in jest?

Does it matter?

Just imagine if a Republican said those words. There would be instant outrage and wall-to-wall media coverage.

Check out what happened when a reporter asked Millennials about the comments, saying they were made by President Donald Trump.

From Daily Caller:

The DC’s Stephanie Hamill visited a college campus in Washington, D.C.,to find out how students felt about Hillary Clinton’s recent “they all look alike” comment.

During a recent conference, Clinton joked about how “they all look alike” after the interviewer mixed up Sen. Cory Booker and former Attorney General Eric Holder, who are both prominent black Democrats.

Is Clinton gearing up for a third presidential run?

All signs point to…potentially.

“We’re going to talk about 2020 in a minute — do you want to run again?” [Recode’s Kara] Swisher asked Clinton.

Hillary: “No. No. Well, I— well, I’d like to be president.”

Hillary: “Look, I think, hopefully, when we have a Democrat in the Oval Office in January of 2021, there’s going to be so much work to be done.”

Bernie Sanders Works Hard For Immigrant Vote, Says He’ll Stop Deportations If He Wins White House

Is that right?

Published

Sen. Bernie Sanders is in full campaign mode, and given his extreme, socialist bent, he’s doing what any good Democratic candidate would do in his position, which pander his pants off. Who is Sanders dedicating his time to sucking up to? The illegal immigrant vote of course. The socialist has stated that if he should win the White House, he fully plans on imposing a moratorium on all deportations, which is sure to win him major points with Democrat voters and those residing in the country illegally. via TheBlaze: Sanders was speaking at an event hosted by the progressive Latino group Mijente in Las Vegas when he unveiled this new immigration proposal. “We are going to end the ICE raids that are terrorizing communities all across this country,” Sanders said. “We are going to impose a moratorium on deportations. And we are going to, as I mentioned — and there are some things that a president can do with executive orders and some things you can’t.” https://youtu.be/_3uQw6AahII https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1173326838602641408 The proposal presents a clear trajectory of where illegal immigration policy would go under a Sanders administration. If you choose to stop deporting illegal immigrants, the next step down would be to detain them when they are found living in the U.S. illegally. But since detention facilities are already overwhelmed, resulting in poor conditions at some locations, indefinite detention during this deportation moratorium would not be a viable option. So, the only other choice would be to release them — or not seek to find and arrest illegal immigrants at all. Folks just do not seem to understand the threat that illegal immigrants pose to our nation, both in regards to physical safety and economic security. The vast majority of individuals who cross the border illegally end up on welfare programs like…

New Report From CBS Claims Multiple ISIS Fighters In Kurdish Prison Say They’re American And Want To Come Home

The Kurds can gladly keep them.

A CBS reporter recently visited a Syrian prison that was chock full of deplorable, disgusting members of radical Islamic terrorist group ISIS, which obviously wasn’t much of a story, but what else she found there is making headlines all across the country, and for good reason. Apparently, several of the prisoners she encountered claimed to be ISIS members from America who want to come back home. Yeah, don’t mean to burst your bubbles, guys, but that’s a no from us over here. via TheBlaze: When he was questioned by CBS News foreign correspondent Holly Williams, prisoner and accused ISIS fighter Lirim Sylejmani told her he was from Chicago. “The choices that I made, in somebody’s eyes, the wrong choices, so I face jail time,” he told Williams. He also said that he “just wanted to live under Islamic law” and did not think he had done anything wrong. He added that he wanted to return to the United States, even though he knew that he would likely be put in prison there as well. In another case, a 7-year-old prisoner who claimed to be from New York City told Williams that he had been brought to join ISIS by his parents. A seven-year-old child? Seriously? Many of you reading this have a kid this age in your home. Think about that sweet, young boy or girl being a member of a radical terrorist group, so full of hate, anger, and violence they would be willing to murder others. That’s the kind of monsters that belong to ISIS. The kind who take away a child’s innocence and brainwash them into becoming soldiers in a war that is about nothing more than world domination and spilling blood. It’s so tragic. However, no one should be allowed back over here. Period. Once you’ve…
