Stories Chosen For You
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) speculated that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) might have a penis during a screed against transgender people.
"We need courage responding to crazy town," Cruz told supporters. "Elizabeth Warren told reporters that a guy came up to her and said, 'I would have voted for you if only you had a penis.'"
Cruz argued that Warren's "story is a lie."
"In today's Democrat [sic] Party, how do we know she doesn't?" Cruz said to laughter. "How could you possibly know? 'My name is Elizabeth. Call me Bob.'"
Cruz went on to insist that transgender swimmer Lia Thomas is a "dude."
"He looks like Michael Phelps," the senator remarked.

Reacting to a report from Fox News that "sources" claim the FBI took "privileged" documents with them when they confiscated sensitive government documents from his Mar-a-Lago resort, Donald Trump made a demand on his Truth Social that they be returned to him immediately.
According to the Fox report, "The FBI seized boxes containing records covered by attorney-client privilege and potentially executive privilege during its raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News, adding that the Justice Department opposed Trump lawyers' request for the appointment of an independent, special master to review the records."
The report added, "Sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News Saturday that the former president’s team was informed that boxes labeled A-14, A-26, A-43, A-13, A-33, and a set of documents—all seen on the final page of the FBI’s property receipt —contained information covered by attorney-client privilege."
Reacting to that report, Trump fired off his demand, writing, "Oh great! It has just been learned that the FBI, in its now famous raid of Mar-a-Lago, took boxes of privileged 'attorney-client' material, and also 'executive' privileged material, which they knowingly should not have taken."
He then bizarrely proclaimed, "By copy of this TRUTH, I respectfully request that these documents be immediately returned to the location from which they were taken. Thank you!"
Appearing on MSNBC's "The Sunday Show," former U.S. Solicitor General Neal Katyal explained that Donald Trump has so many investigations and lawsuits hanging over his head that he can't effectively fight them all.
Speaking with host Jonathan Capehart, the legal expert suggested that the former president is fighting nothing less than a ''three-front war."
With former Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) saying he was surprised that the former president listened to his attorneys before pleading the 5th Amendment 440 times during a deposition in Manhattan, Katyal jumped in.
"The senator is actually correct," he began. "Trump's lawyers were able to convince Donald Trump to stay silent for four hours. That's a herculean task and the only way in which that happens is because Trump knows he's got something very serious to hide."
"And the senator are absolutely right, in the civil case, the inference is now drawn against him. So he is going to lose these civil cases about fraud that the New York attorney general is pursuing," he elaborated. "A question is now what happens in the criminal investigation, that's ongoing in New York which is totally unrelated to the criminal investigation that we have been talking about, about Mar-a-Lago and classified documents. And also unrelated to any investigation about Jan. 6."
"Trump is now facing a three-front war," he suggested.
