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."
Cuts ≠ Disbanding the reserve
"We don’t have a (military) reserve force if something happens."
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."
All we have is a three-month window
Says Hillary Clinton's "campaign hasn't been clear about when she wiped her server of her work emails."
Many are in for sneaking over the border
"25 percent of federal inmates are noncitizens."
Money, like Trump, has been shifting to the right
Says Donald Trump has "given more money to Democratic candidates than Republican candidates."
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."
Negative opinions are widespread, but not a majority view
Polls indicate that "white people think that black people are less intelligent. They think they’re less trustworthy, less patriotic."
Born in Bamberg, S.C.
Says South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley "is an immigrant."
'At age 34, one out of four women are virgins in Japan'
"46 percent of women between the age of 16 to 24 despise sexual contact" in Japan.
The reason -- like the flag itself -- is up for some debate
The Confederate battle flag in South Carolina was first flown at the statehouse in 1961. "It was flown as a symbol of massive resistance to racial desegregation."
No one can remember it be lowered
The Confederate battle flag at the South Carolina statehouse "must fly at a height of 30 feet. Any changes -- taken down, or even at half-staff, if that can be done -- must be passed by a supermajority of the General Assembly."
Not a crime by itself
"For most black people in the history of this country … it was illegal to pass as a white person. You were actually put in jail if you tried to pass."
"After the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax rate cuts ... there was more money coming into the treasury."
Overstated, a bit
Says "Florida is a model" for successful pretrial release programs.
Not the case for most Muslim countries
"In Muslim countries, under the Sharia, there is a death penalty for blaspheming Mohammad."
