Anthony Scaramucci was disinvited from the Palm Beach County GOP fundraising event after criticizing Trump’s “racially charged” tweets.

“He suggested the president’s comments were racist and that he was becoming a racist. Our board was infuriated,” said Michael A. Barnett, the Republican Party chairman in the county, home to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago getaway.

Of course he had to turn it into a political issue implying the individual was a member of the other party.

He Wasn’t Seeking to Kill a Mob Boss. He Was Trying to Help Trump, His Lawyer Says.

The reality, according to his lawyer, appears to be even more bizarre: Mr. Comello had become convinced that Mr. Cali was part of the so-called deep state, a cabal of criminals that conspiracy theorists claim controls the United States government. Mr. Comello also believed he was a chosen vigilante of President Trump.

This strange but true story is a must read!

If the stories broadcast by the Trump-endorsed One America News Network sometimes look like outtakes from a Kremlin trolling operation, there may be a reason. One of the on-air reporters at the 24-hour network is a Russian national on the payroll of the Kremlin’s official propaganda outlet, Sputnik.

Kristian Brunovich Rouz, originally from the Siberian city of Novosibirsk, has been living in San Diego, where OAN is based, since August 2017, reporting on U.S. politics for the 24-hour news channel. For all of that time, he’s been simultaneously writing for Sputnik, a Kremlin-owned news wire that played a role in Russia’s 2016 election-interference operation, according to an assessment by the U.S. intelligence community.

The dumb hurts.

Fox & Friends hosts say there’s no need to raise the tipped minimum wage

Ainsley Earhardt: “If you’re working at a McDonald’s or a small little restaurant where you’re making tips, … if you’re nice to the people, you make a lot of money”

Apparently they’re utterly unaware that fast food chains use normal minimum wage, NOT tipped minimum wage. Unless they’re tipping people at Chez Donald’s?

So, uncertain how to handle this one.

I am sure many of you have seen this tweet:

There is a serious issue with it being spread as fact. It smacks of “crisis actor” conspiracies. Some small news outlets have picked up on it:

The source won’t reveal his source, making it impossible to corroborate. But some other media have said that the nurses are verified as working there.

In the interest of getting to the bottom of this, I personally called Miami Dayon Hospital and spoke to somebody in their Marketing Department. He assured me that the rumors about actors are false, all in the photos are employees, and that Snopes has something up about it, which I present here:
