Republicans can’t count

Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), a Trumper election denier (details here), not only can’t read an election result, but can’t count warm bodies wading across the Rio Grande and climbing over fences, either. She tweeted on Tuesday, April 19, 2022, “Border Patrol agents have apprehended more tha[...]

Tucker Carlson falsely blames refugees for housing shortage

Ranting about America’s housing crisis, which is real enough, Fox host Tucker Carlson told his gullible audience, “So, why is it happening? Well, lots of reasons, but one reason it’s happening is America is becoming a lot more crowded than it ever was, and one of the reasons for th[...]
