Right-wing pundit scorched for claiming zero Republicans challenged Obama’s legitimacy
On Monday, right-wing commentator Ben Shapiro made a head-turning claim: That President Donald Trump deserves respect because no Republicans ever questioned President Barack Obama's legitimacy:
Confronted with the fact that Trump himself promulgated the "Birther" conspiracy theory that Obama wasn't born in the United States, Shapiro pled No True Scotsman, insisting that Trump didn't really count as a "Republican figure" back in the early 2010s when he was spreading Birther lies — and that Republican officeholders at the time didn't agree with the delegitimization of the president.
Trump was a fringe character for nearly the entirety of the Obama presidency; he wasn't a "Republican figure" until he ran. You can't name a single major elected Republican official during Obama's presidency who challenged the legitimacy of his presidency. https://t.co/jodrc7Pljf
Man stabbed to death at California university — he was also targeted with ‘incendiary device’
Police are searching for a murder suspect after a fatal stabbing on the first day of school at a California university.
"A retired Cal State Fullerton administrator was stabbed to death Monday morning on the first day of the university’s academic year, and authorities later found an explosive device nearby," the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.
"Fullerton police responded to reports of an assault with a deadly weapon at 8:30 a.m. in the parking lot near the College Park building. Police found the victim, a man in his late 50s, inside a silver Infiniti, bleeding from his head with multiple stab wounds to his body. Police found an 'incendiary device' near the vehicle that showed the suspect targeted the victim," the newspaper reported.
Trump is panicking because ‘his reality show sees cancellation on the horizon’: Columnist
On Monday, Eugene Robinson wrote a Washington Post op-ed suggesting President Donald Trump is self-destructing because "his reality show sees cancellation on the horizon."
"Evidence suggests that Trump is melting down. Again. And for good reason," wrote Robinson. "Fears of a global recession, greatly exacerbated by Trump's erratic and self-destructive trade policies, have sent financial markets tumbling. A sharp downturn would close off one of the principal lines of attack the president was hoping to use against his Democratic opponent. He tried it out at a rally in New Hampshire last week: 'You have no choice but to vote for me,' he told the crowd, 'because your 401(k)'s down the tubes, everything's gonna be down the tubes' if he loses. 'So whether you love me or hate me, you gotta vote for me.'"
