Hillary Clinton who, as most people know, is a world class liar – just look at her pathetic email and server statements, or her phony landing in Bosnia where she said she was under attack but the attack turned out to be young girls handing her flowers, a total self-serving lie. Brian Williams’ career was destroyed for saying far less. [Politico]
SO MUCH NEWS for a summer day it’s hard to keep your attention focused. The big headline is an unprecedented sit-in inside the House chamber over gun legislation, led by American hero, #goodtrouble Rep. John Lewis.
Since Marco Rubio blew his presidential bid, he’s now running for re-election.
Then there’s Donald Trump‘s fact-challenged speech targeting Hillary Clinton, which was a good step away from his outlandish diatribes of previous efforts. He hit Bosnia, emails, blamed HRC for Obama’s presidency, typical stuff that likely gave Republicans hoping Trump would get his act together hope.
As for Trump’s ham-handed swipe at Brian Williams, it’s likely more about “Morning Joe.”
Wait five minutes, that’s my rule for Trump.
Trump falsely claims he opposed Iraq. Then attacks Clinton for Libya (which he strongly supported).

Trump: Clinton foreign policy has cost America "thousands of lives." WTF is he talking about?

Lol the foreign policy section of Trump’s speech makes no sense https://t.co/fc0omgU6JP

Trump's message frame of "You, the American people…" an effective, personalized way to talk policy. Too many pols miss this.

"This is a wave of globalism that wipes out our middle class," Trump says, adding that "we have to make America rich again."

But, evidently, Paul Manifort didn’t think going after Hillary’s marriage or Bill Clinton’s personal foibles is worthy of a presidential campaign in 2016. That’s the best news out of it.
Can’t wait to see Trump in Scotland pitching his golf courses as #Brexit headlines hit. Talk about awkward.
I’ll take a sit-in versus a filibuster any day, especially when it’s Rep. John Lewis stepping all over Donald J. Trump.

On House flr, Rep. Richmond, "Who elected the NRA to run this country?" Rep. Jackson-Lee yells out, "Break the shackles!"
