As Twitchy reported Friday, it looks as though the Saudis are finally admitting that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed in the Saudi consulate in Turkey, with the latest official explanation being that he “died from a chokehold during a physical altercation” with 15 Saudis. Even that sounds barely plausible, but at least it’s not Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro accusing Jared Kushner of providing Saudi Arabia a “hit list” on which Khashoggi’s name appeared. We thought that take was hot, but then, as always, 2016 also-ran Even McMullin spoke up: Claims that Jamal Khashoggi was merely killed in a “fistfight” with 15 […]

Earlier this week, Jim Acosta provided a scathing review of a Trump rally in Florida. Last night in Indiana, CNN’s intrepid Resistance reporter continued by hanging on every letter of Trump’s speech: Trump just called Obama at rally in Indiana “Barack H. Obama.” (Not very subtle) — Jim Acosta (@Acosta) November 3, 2018 We can’t wait to see what CNN does with that in a chyron!

Kirsten Powers doubles down on white savior complex after ‘crazy racist’ Kris Paronto calls her out

by I'm Struggling
in News
As Twitchy told you earlier this week, once-respectable Democrat Kirsten Powers recycled a stale straw man to lecture “white people” about why it’s wrong to dress as someone from “another race or culture” on Halloween: Dear white people who are upset that you can't dress up as another race or culture for Halloween: your feelings don't matter. The only feelings that matter are of those who feel disrespected/mocked by you appropriating their culture for entertainment. Show some common decency. — Kirsten Powers (@KirstenPowers) October 23, 2018 Benghazi hero Kris Paronto couldn’t help but point out that Powers appears to be […]

Gratitude to the @SecretService and law enforcement for all they do to keep this nation safe. — Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) October 24, 2018 But for “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski, Ivanka left somebody out and it should go further in order to match the Democrat talking points: Do you condem your father’s violent rhetoric? Can you? Step up. Only a coward would stand by silently […]

While our media betters are tripping all over themselves to downplay the fact that Elizabeth Warren definitely lied about her Native American heritage, it’s important to remember that she definitely lied about her Native American heritage. And, as National Review’s Jim Geraghty reminds us, it’s not just Elizabeth Warren who’s got egg on her face today: A 1997 Fordham Law Review piece described Elizabeth Warren as Harvard Law School's "first woman of color.”https://t.co/klZwCPFfvF pic.twitter.com/rrKT1WgyJ2 — Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) October 15, 2018 Oooooof.
