Rodney Howard-Browne, a Trump-loving pastor who was invited to the White House to pray for the president in 2017, went off on a crazed Twitter rant on Friday in which he said that the massacre of 49 Muslims in New Zealand was part of a “false flag” conspiracy meant to silence conservatives.

Published

Princeton University History Professor Kevin Kruse on Tuesday delivered a thorough takedown of President Donald Trump's claim that House Democrats' impeachment inquiry represents a "lynching."
