UPDATE: D'Souza reacts
"As a U.S. senator with salary and perks, #Bernie is in the top 1 percent, but still paid only 13 percent in taxes last year."
Most of law clashed
"Senate Bill 1070, simply, just mirrors federal law."
This claim should go straight to Row Zed
The Other 98%
"Last year (the U.S. women’s soccer team) generated $20 million more than the men’s team and were paid almost four times less."
67 percent of less than 1 percent of refugees
In 2013, the United States "accepted 67 percent of the world’s refugees."
Simple math, but slippery numbers
Taking all the money of the top 1 percent wouldn’t keep Medicare going for three years.
An exaggeration of what happened
Says a car driving former University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe "ran through the students, hit one of them" at the MU Homecoming Parade.
Not all killings are murders
From 2014 to 2015, Austin’s "murder rate is up a whopping 83 percent."
Over the top
Says after leaving the White House, Hillary Clinton "was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House china, furniture and artwork that she had stolen."
Low and outside
"In 1940, only 7 percent of Germans were Nazis."
Examples are scant
"There’s a tremendous other number of public officials who have done the same thing" as Hillary Clinton with a private email server.
Not universal practices
"Prior to 1962, everybody prayed before school started," and "the Bible was the principal textbook in all schools."
Confuses GDP with tax revenues
"In a few months, this deal would give Iran $150 billion" for its $300 billion to $400 billion economy, which is "like $8 trillion flowing into the United States treasury."
Obama talks about it but hasn't scaled back THAT much
"Obama keeps talking about getting rid of all nuclear weapons. He’s already significantly reduced our capabilities there."
Not the data we found
"We know from ... the federal data, that they only stop or apprehend one out of four illegal people crossing our border."
Money, like Trump, has been shifting to the right
Says Donald Trump has "given more money to Democratic candidates than Republican candidates."
"After the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax rate cuts ... there was more money coming into the treasury."
A label yes, but no "S"
The Texas Senate "approved a bill to put a special label on the insurance cards of anyone who bought a plan through Obamacare" that includes the letter "S" for subsidy.
