‘Run away like a coward’: Paul Ryan flees Congress — and the internet erupts in joyful mockery

Published

on

Donald Trump threatened to start a war this morning, a possible attempt to distract from the fact that investigators raided the offices of his personal attorney on Monday and likely have a whole boatload of new evidence against him.

Turns out, maybe he didn’t need to start a new war. At the same time Trump was warning Russia of his plans to shoot missiles at Syria’s despotic leadership, Paul Ryan united the nation in a rare moment of joy when news broke that he is “retiring” at age 48. The fiscal arch-conservative will have completed 20 years of service with the federal government and will get his full pension starting at age 50.

CNN’s Brianna Keilar explains why she battled Trump adviser: ‘You can’t just ignore BS — you have to shovel it’

This Tuesday, CNN's Brianna Keilar got into a heated exchange with Trump campaign senior adviser Mercedes Schlapp, fact-checking her assertions that mail-in voting can lead to election fraud. This Wednesday, Keilar did a follow-up on the segment, saying that a coronavirus death in the U.S. is more than "2000-times likely to occur than a case of voter fraud in any type of election."

Keilar then addressed some criticism her network has received over its choice to interview Trump campaign officials when their struggles with the truth are well known.
