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.
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."
The proof isn't solid
As a senator, Hillary Clinton "actually paid female staffers a lot less than men."
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."
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.
More than zero, even allowing for hyperbole
There was "just about zero press coverage" of the 2007 Bush White House email controversy.
On the edge maybe, but no violations
"We've caught Iran cheating on the interim (nuclear) deal."
Glosses over important protections even for terrorists
Terrorist detainees "were not covered by the Geneva Convention. They were unlawful combatants. And under those circumstances, they were not entitled to the normal kinds of courtesies and treatment."
Government's best data is flawed
"In 2012, 123 African-Americans were shot dead by police. ... Same year, 326 whites were killed by police."
No, but they are more reliable voters
"It is senior citizens, not Hispanics, who are the fastest-growing demographic in this country."
99% are temporary
"There would be tens of thousands of jobs created" if President Barack Obama approved the Keystone XL pipeline.
7 would be more accurate, maybe more
"We have four combat-ready brigades out of 40 in the U.S. Army."
This is speculation
Says President Barack Obama attacked potential terrorist targets in Syria in the middle of the night "to minimize terrorist casualties."
Blaming the Fed is peculiar, economists say
"Over the last 40 years, real wage growth has been flatlined because of the policies of the Federal Reserve ... It was all driven by the Federal Reserve."
The kids started coming before the policy shift
Obama’s 2012 policy on younger immigrants "created these children coming across" the border.
Reagan wanted to stay on the ranch
Compared to President Obama, "President Reagan rushed home from Santa Barbara vacation, from the Reagan ranch when the Korean jetliner was shot out of the air by the Russians."
A neutral term, at best
Redskins is "used historically" as "a term of respect."
The Pentagon wanted the change
"At the mere request from Putin, President Obama withdrew the plans for a missile defense program based in Poland and the Czech Republic."
You need to look further back, like 1910
"A lot of the problems with forest fires ... is because of bad policy (not to clear out the forests) that was put in place by environmentalists."
