What's clear is it's not that clear
The money the Clinton Foundation took from from foreign governments while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state "is clearly illegal. … The Constitution says you can’t take this stuff."
Totaling about $7 million
"Of the 13 (Bill) Clinton speeches that fetched $500,000 or more, only two occurred during the years his wife was not secretary of state."
It doesn't affect that many farmers
"More astronauts have been to the moon than farmers who paid the inheritance tax in 2013."
That recession thing was probably important too
"America has lost over 50,000 manufacturing factories on other trade deals."
Democrats claim they were duped
The Hyde Amendment "language was in the (human trafficking) bill. The Democratic sponsor admits it was in the bill, and she voted for it."
You can do it, but it can create a headache
"The president and vice president can't be from the same state."
Right on Paul's shift, wrong about a bill
Says Rand Paul denied that he "put forward a bill ... to zero out foreign aid and specifically spoke about Israel."
An exaggeration coupled with fuzzy words
Says Hillary Clinton "erased all of her emails even though they were subject to recall and review by Congress."
Based on a debunked claim
Says President Ronald Reagan "had a month of job creation of 1 million."
Stats are off and miss half the story
"White men account for 69 percent of those arrested for violent crimes."
Rare, yes. Never? Data disagrees
"Not a single unarmed white person has been shot by the police" in New York in about 45 years.
Missing some context
"There's just one piece of legislation that is now law" with Sen. Ted Cruz's "name on it."
No smoking in the bathrooms either
Liberty University students "were mandated" to attend Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential announcement "or they would be fined."
A misfire on both targets
Under New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, homicides are up by 20 percent, and subway delays have soared 45 percent.
The IAEA doesn't have enough access
The IAEA, or the International Atomic Energy Agency, "last month said the Iranians are not currently living up to their obligations."
90% would be closer
Says "Jeb Bush has released 10 percent of his emails."
Lots of criticism when it happened
In 2007, when Nancy Pelosi met with President Assad of Syria, "nobody got upset."
Update: We all need to use a percent change calculator
"Every day, a black name resume is 50 percent less likely to get responded to than a white name resume."
More than zero, even allowing for hyperbole
There was "just about zero press coverage" of the 2007 Bush White House email controversy.
