GOP front runner Donald Trump, who is an adamant birther, meaning he doesn’t believe President Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen, has launched an attack against his closest rival, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
During the GOP primary debate on Thursday night, however, Cruz apparently came prepared to do battle. Trump and Cruz went head-to-head over whether Canadian-born Cruz, whose mother is a U.S. citizen, was qualified to be president.
The audience booed Trump as he pointed out that if he didn’t raise the issue, the Democrats would do so. Trump hinted he would offer Cruz a position as vice presidential candidate if he was nominated. Cruz did the same for Trump. But Trump turned it down, saying he’d go back to real estate if he failed to secure the GOP nomination.
Trump admitted he raised the issue because Cruz is doing better in the polls.

Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."

If Trump really believed he was falsely accused ‘that is not a corrupt motive’ for removing the special counsel: Bill Barr
Attorney General William Barr told Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that if President Donald Trump really and truly thought he was being falsely accused of collaborating with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election, that it was "not a corrupt motive" for firing Robert Mueller, a stunning statement from the nation's highest law enforcement officer.
"As a matter of law, I think the department's position would be that the president can direct the termination or the replacement of a special counsel," said Barr. "And as a matter of law, the obstruction statute does not reach that conduct."
