Crime bill gets some, not all, blame
"The policy mistakes that ... the Clintons made got us, in large degree, to the situation that we are in today with mass incarceration."
An 'anomaly' among economic peers
"There are actually only 30 countries that practice birthright citizenship."
Emails had few details
Emails released to the public show Hillary Clinton discussed "the location of Ambassador Stevens, who of course was murdered, in Libya."
GOP won women by 1 percentage point in '88
"The Republican presidential nominee hasn’t won women since 1988."
Not a significant rewrite
"Fox changed around their poll eligibility criteria on the day they announced who is in and out of their debate."
Selective reading of 'services'
"Almost 95 percent of all (Planned Parenthood) pregnancy services were abortions."
Actions louder than words
Russia and China "absolutely said clearly" they would not keep economic sanctions on Iran if the United States "walked away from the deal."
Huevos rancheros for thought
"The majority of the Hispanic population and the growth (of the population) is U.S.-born."
He's right in spirit, not in details
The United States is "fighting with Iraqis to defeat ISIS along with Iran. But in Yemen we're fighting Iran with Iraqis and Saudis."

Cuts ≠ Disbanding the reserve
"We don’t have a (military) reserve force if something happens."

Many are in for sneaking over the border
"25 percent of federal inmates are noncitizens."
Money, like Trump, has been shifting to the right

The numbers, like elections in Florida, are close
In Florida, "the number of voters who now register as ‘other’ has grown by a million in the last 10 years. Compare that with the Democrats, who only grew by 300,000 and the Republicans who grew by just 200,000."
Tourists like both places, too
"Greece is not a big economy. It's about the size of metropolitan Miami."
An exaggeration as big as Texas
"50 percent of murders in Texas have been linked to illegal aliens."
The games are back
Says Amazon has removed "an educational game about Gettysburg."
Hinges on definition of developed
"The United States doesn’t have the highest murder rate among developed countries. You look at Russia, you look at Brazil, those are countries that have 3 to 5 times higher murder rates than what we have here in the United States."
