Portraying Democrats, portraying Judge Jackson as being soft on crime, bringing up abortion and racist baby books, trying to victimize themselves by invoking previous Supreme Court hearings. Any question what the midterm fight is going to look like after what we watched this week?”

    I am dying here laughing at some of the reactions to the Rittenhouse verdict, filled with hyperbole, outright lies, and delicious tears. I’d like to document the best ones. Keeping in mind that Mr. Rittenhouse shot three white guys in self defense, I’ll start with the Rev. Al Sharpton, who seems to be living in an alternate universe: "These continue to be dark days for black people killed at the hands of people that believe our lives do not matter. This verdict was not only outrageous and dangerous, it was also an obvious signal that encourages and notifies 'vigilantes' that...

    In her "Ingraham Angle" monologue, host Laura Ingraham said President Joe Biden has gone "Full Sharpton" with a fact-free condemnation of Border Patrol agents and the injection of race into a political issue. Biden said Friday that people were being "strapped" by mounted Border Patrol agents, promising the agents "will pay" despite evidence the agents were acting in line with their duties and also using reins as commonplace in Western riding, and not bullwhips. "So much for Biden tacking to the middle to unite the country and save his presidency," Ingraham said. "The amiable old man who ran for president...
