‘Troll game strong’: The internet can’t stop laughing at Mueller’s heavily-redacted sentencing memo

Published

on

It took very little time for Twitter to begin cracking jokes and making memes about special counsel Robert Mueller’s heavy redaction on his sentencing memo for former senior Trump aide Michael Flynn.

Though some information is clear in the memo — including that Mueller suggests no prison time for Flynn but believes “senior government leaders should be held to the highest standard” — not much can be gleaned from it.

Lots of people pointed out what the memo left out — and some made jokes about it.

“21 USC §§331, 333, 343 & 21 CFR §133.113(a)(3) make it a federal crime for a cheesemaker to sell cheddar cheese unless the curd was matted into a cohesive mass,” an account called “A Crime A Day” tweeted. They then added that “lots of other stuff was redacted from the Flynn memo, too.”

Others still turned the redaction into a joke of its own.

“Girl, are you a heavily redacted document? Because I just can’t read you,” Washington Post data reporter Christopher Ingraham tweeted.

‘The ground is shifting’: Longtime GOP aide sounds the alarm that Trump is putting Arizona in play

Published

on

Chuck Coughlin, who once served as a top aide to two different Republican governors in Arizona, is warning that President Donald Trump is putting his state in play for the 2020 presidential election.

In an interview with Politico, Coughlin said his party has expressed real anxiety about the state turning blue next year.

"Republicans are very concerned,” he said. "The ground is shifting."

At the moment, just 45 percent of Arizona voters have a favorable view of Trump, while 53 percent have an unfavorable view. Additionally, the victory of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) in last year's midterm elections showed that Democrats can be competitive in statewide races in a place that became famous for electing iconic conservative senators such as John McCain and Barry Goldwater.

PolitiFact corrects conservatives: The NYT Kavanaugh story has not been debunked

Published

on

The new report from The New York Times on the allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh contained some stunning new revelations — including that several people tried to contact the FBI to corroborate Deborah Ramirez's assault allegation but were ignored, and that prominent attorney Max Stier alleges he saw Kavanaugh take part in a third assault.

But conservative news sites are now running with the idea that the Times article has been discredited and that the paper has retracted its claims. PJ Media, a prominent right-wing site, ran the headline "New York Times Now Admits New Kavanaugh Accusation Is Fake News."

Longtime GOP strategist explains why his party is getting crushed in the war of ideas

Published

on

Republican strategist Stuart Stevens on Wednesday warned the GOP that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) might not be a pushover candidate against President Donald Trump in 2020.

Writing on Twitter, Stevens admitted that he had "no idea" if Warren would beat Trump next year, but he did say that "Trump and supporters are destroying [the] credibility of any center-right argument" thanks to Trump's "corrupt and unstable" governance.

When one of Stevens' followers said that Warren would not be able to fulfill her promises just by taxing the wealthy, he countered that this idea is still more popular than anything Republicans are championing.
