Then, she looked at me and then the TSA agent and said “you see, it is my daughters. She JUST graduated from graduate school!” She was so intensely proud of her daughter and honestly this is the happiest I’ve been in a long time. Definitely best TSA experience ever.

All day today CNN personalities referred to Trump’s obvious lie about unknown Muslims in the caravan as a thing he said “without providing evidence.” Which allows for it being true. Which at this point, is malpractice.

This is also 100% garbage. As Whip, McCarthy was in charge of party message discipline. He never did anything but make fun of King’s intelligence - in private to reporters who he was pressuring to ignore King’s crazy racist rantings. I know because I was one of the reporters https://t.co/3MsiTyTUAI
