Young Republicans

At a maskless indoor Palm Beach conference for Turning Point USA, the organization run by the kid who stole my cooler during his Eagle Scout project (true story, Charlie Kirk). This is the future of the Republican party...

When you lie so much, someone actually sues you

 Turns out, you can't just lie on TV without repurcussions. From Mediaite...

Many of the conspiracy theories used to support the claim that the election was stolen from Trump involved two voting system companies, Smartmatic and Dominion. Allies of the president made a series of false claims about those companies, which included the allegation that they worked together to change votes from Trump to Biden.

In response to that coverage, Florida-based Smartmatic sent retraction demands to Fox News, Newsmax and OAN for airing “false and defamatory statements” about the company, threatening legal action as a last resort. Dominion has also threatened legal action against the president’s campaign.

Fox News was first to air a fact-check, on Friday, of claims made about the voting systems companies. The strange segment, in which an unknown voice asks a serious of questions about voting conspiracy theories to an elections expert, aired on shows of Fox News hosts Lou DobbsJeanine Pirro and Maria Bartiromo. All hosts were named in Smartmatic’s demand for retractions.

Newsmax TV aired its own segment fact-checking claims made about those companies on Monday.

The president and his followers are officially embarrassing themselves at this point. It's pathetic.

A data expert was hired by the Trump campaign to look into the numbers in Nevada (which used the Dominion software). This is what he found.

Nothing. No fraud. No ballot stuffing. No dead people voting. Totally normal numbers with perfectly logical explanations for all of them. The minimal errors found *favored* Republicans.

Time to STFU.
