Liberals lost their minds because the New York Times had the audacity to fact check Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) during his rebuttal top President Trump’s Tuesday night speech.

They can’t take it when their side gets called out.

Facepalm.

Trending: REPORT: Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Retire This Month, Has Contracted Pneumonia

Here’s the NYT tweet:

Annnndddd the meltdowns:

Schumer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) lived up to the hype.

Twitter noticed.

In short, the Democrat “leaders” put on a creepy performance.

From Fox News:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Tuesday night that President Trump used his prime-time Oval Office address to “manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention from the turmoil in his Administration.”

In a response delivered jointly with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Schumer called on Trump to approve legislation ending the partial government shutdown “while allowing debate over border security to continue.”

“We can re-open the government and continue to work through disagreements about policy,” Schumer said. “We can secure our border without an expensive, ineffective wall. And, we can welcome legal immigrants and refugees without compromising safety and security. The symbol of America should be the Statue of Liberty, not a thirty-foot wall.”

Pelosi only likes facts her party creates.

She hates actual facts.

Classic lefty, huh?

From Daily Wire:

In a tense meeting with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen about the U.S.-Mexico border — in which Nielsen was spieling out a slew of facts (the non-fungible kind) — Pelosi interrupted to declare: “I reject your facts.”

“The clash between the top House Democrat and a key member of President Trump’s Cabinet occurred during a Wednesday meeting in the White House amid the impasse over the government shutdown, with Trump standing firm and demanding $5 billion for the border wall,” Fox News reported.

Just a few years ago, Schumer spoke the same way President Trump speaks now about illegal immigration.

Just goes to show how political the border wall has become.

Well said, Chuck!

The folks at Body Language Ghost are back again.

They’ve analyzed big names in the past, but their targets today are Democrats Schumer and Nancy Pelosi (CA).

The pair recently met with President Trump in the Oval Office.

According to Ghost, Trump set them up.

Nancy and Chuck’s body language suggests they didn’t know the media was going to be in the room and they weren’t prepared.

WATCH:

Did you know America has three coasts?

California’s Pelosi has apparently just clued the rest of us in on a monumental secret.

The next Speaker of the House struggled with U.S. geography on Thursday as she once again announced her opposition to a wall along the border with Mexico.

We, most of us, speaking for myself, consider the wall immoral, ineffective and expensive, and the President said – he promised – he also promised Mexico would pay for it.

So even if they did, it’s immoral still, and then they’re not going to pay for it. So that isn’t how I would interpret a congressional – a continuing resolution.

[…]

We have a responsibility, all of us, to secure our borders, North, South, and coming in by plane on our coasts, three coasts–North, South and West–and that’s the responsibility we honor. But we do so by honoring our values as well.

DEMS: Impeachment is Coming If Cohen’s Squealing is True

The coming days will be trying for the President, and for the nation.

Impeachment

For a President as controversial as Donald Trump has been, it is a bit surprising that no fully-fleshed plans for impeachment have already been hatched.

Before Trump was even sworn into office, the left was clamoring about shutting him down, impeaching him, resisting him, and possibly removing him from office using the 25th Amendment…somehow.

Now, two years into the President’s first term, there have been no true attempts at getting impeachment to a vote.  That could all change this week, however, after bombshell reports from Buzzfeed, of all places, has the Commander in Chief implicated in a crime.

Late Thursday night, BuzzFeed News published a report that, if true, could prove historic: President Donald Trump allegedly directed his then–personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about a real-estate deal he was pursuing in Moscow during the 2016 election. Trump immediately denied the story, but for many Democrats, including those who had previously cautioned against impeaching the president before Special Counsel Robert Mueller produces his findings in the Russia investigation, the report was cause to consider proceeding with impeachment before the Russia probe is finished.

The democrats are reacting:

“If the @BuzzFeed story is true, President Trump must resign or be impeached,” Democratic Representative Joaquin Castro, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, wrote on Twitter. Democratic Senator Chris Murphy weighed in, too. “If Mueller does have multiple sources confirming Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress, then we need to know this ASAP,” he wrote. “Mueller shouldn’t end his inquiry, but it’s about time for him to show Congress his cards before it’s too late for us to act.” Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley followed up on Friday morning: “If this report of Trump suborning false testimony is confirmed, then Trump committed a felony and must resign or be impeached,” he wrote. “This is obstruction of justice,”  Democratic Representative David Cicilline, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, told CNN. “If the facts are true, this is suborning perjury. It’s an impeachable offense.” Representative Jamie Raskin, a member of House leadership, told CNN, “This is a completely impeachable offense, if this report is true.” He said Congress would need to hear from “everybody who was involved” in the alleged conspiracy before moving forward with impeachment.

Brace yourselves, folks out in MAGA-land; trouble is coming for this President.  What we must be very diligent in the coming weeks in not blaming one another for something that the President got himself into…if that’s what this turns out to be.  No mass brawling.  No civil unrest.  It won’t be your neighbor’s fault if the President told Cohen to lie.

Understood?  We’re all Americans.  We’re going to have to work hard in the coming days to act like it.

Colin Kaepernick Furious with Rapper Travis Scott for Taking Super Bowl Gig

Is this really the kind of squabble that ANYONE wants to pay attention to?

Colin Kaepernick

Rapper Travis Scott defied a boycott of the Super Bowl set up by a list of black performers and now reports say that the beneficiary of the boycott, former NFL player Colin Kaepernick, is not at all happy with the rapper’s decision to work with the NFL.

According to a number of reports, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is upset that rapper Travis Scott decided to to perform at the upcoming Super Bowl.

Despite the reports, Scott claims that Kaepernick “respected” his decision to play this year’s halftime show.

A long list of black performers, including Cardi B, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Meek Mills, and many others, announced a boycott of the Super Bowl to show support for Colin Kaepernick, who was benched by the league after the 2016 season during which he invented the anti-American protest as the national anthem played. Kaepernick in now suing the league claiming the league and its owners “colluded” to keep him from continuing his pro football career.

Boycott or no, Scott bucked the group of black entertainers and signed up to perform alongside rock band Maroon 5.

Scott claimed that he required the NFL to make a large donation to a social justice cause as a prerequisite for his performance. However, Scott has not reported the amount of the donation nor to what social justice group that donation was to be given.

Scott also took the step of having a conversation with Kaepernick to explain why he was taking the Super Bowl gig.

Per Variety:

Scott and Kaepernick had at least one phone conversation before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance, sources tell Variety. A source close to Scott said that while the two did not necessarily agree, they emerged from the conversation with mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way and he felt that the money going toward Dream Corps, combined with the platform provided by the Super Bowl, will do some good. The source also said that Scott would not confirm his performance until the donation was locked in.

This is not the same story people close to Kaepernick are telling.

According to Kaepernick’s activist girlfriend, Nessa Diab, Scott is full of it.

Diab, a California radio personality and loud social justice advocate, jumped to her Twitter account to refute the claims that there was mutual respect between Kaepernick and Scott.

Diab also posted a message to Instagram divulging more of her thoughts on Scott’s actions:

1. Artists don’t get paid to perform at “the big game.” These performers are CHOOSING to do this for a ‘look.’

2. The fact that many people have told him don’t support the organization that has blackballed [Kaepernick] for standing up for people, and he still does it anyways, shows more about him than anything else.

AND! If someone wants to work with the opposition, then that’s on them, BUT DO NOT have your team lie to reporters to insinuate Colin was okay with anyone working against him. PERIOD!

The former San Francisco 49er quarterback himself has not spoken publicly about the discussion with the rapper, but his girlfriend’s messages are telling, nonetheless.

For his part, Scott added a statement about the issue: “I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in. I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation. I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change.”

The 2019 Super Bowl will be played on February 3 after the last two wild card games are played this coming weekend to determine which two teams will meet for the championship.
