Eric Bolling, a talk show host on the conservative Fox News Channel, wrongly claimed Wednesday that there were no domestic terrorist attacks during the Bush administration, apparently forgetting that the worst terrorist attack in the nation’s history occurred on the former president’s watch.
President George W. Bush’s former spokeswoman, Dana Perino, was also on the program with Bolling, but she made no effort to correct his misstatement.
Perino instead tried to correct one guest who reminded viewers that the Bush administration hyped an alleged threat of “weapons of mass destruction” to scare lawmakers into supporting an unprovoked war against Iraq.

Trump’s ‘sore loser’ tiny desk performance mocked by New Yorker writer: ‘This does not project strength’
New Yorker writer Susan Glasser on Friday mocked President Donald Trump for whining about losing the 2020 presidential election while sitting behind a tiny desk.
Appearing on CNN, Glasser said she was amazed that someone as image-conscious as Trump wouldn't realize how weak he appeared on Thanksgiving while ranting about voter from behind a puny desk.
‘Tiny brain. Tiny man. Tiny desk. Massive ego.’ Donald Trump mocked for ‘throwing a tantrum’ at ‘the kids table’
President Donald Trump gave a Thanksgiving Day address from a comically tiny desk in the White House, setting off a stream of mockery throughout the evening.
The president aired his grievances, lashed out at reporters and told outrageous lies about the election -- which he insisted had been stolen from him -- but most observers were distracted by that unusually small desk adorned with a large presidential seal.

The biggest laugh of 2020 was the way the Trump administration travesty died with a whimper
It was four days after the election — a Sunday — and I'd crashed out the night before after endlessly refreshing the AP Politics Twitter feed and analyzing the cursed New York Times election needle for what felt like 90 hours straight. But for the first time in years, I woke up with a glimmer of political hope for our nation as it looked like Trump's window to victory was closing.
