Talk about a character witness. There was a time before Dan Rather was known as the “disgraced” ex-CBS Evening News journalist. But even before he used phony documents in an attempt to torpedo George W. Bush, Rather had a questionable link to the truth. On May 15, 2001, he proclaimed Bill Clinton an “honest” man, saying, “I think you can be an honest person and lie about any number of things.”
The liberal Twitterverse has been having another meltdown over the U.S. embassy moving to Jerusalem. Now many of them are continuing their narrative of Trump as head of a mob family, whose political ties to Israel, another totalitarian regime, are putting the poor Palestinian people at risk.

As President Trump delivered his State of the Union address on January 30, Hollywood expressed its outrage that Trump actually followed tradition and spoke to the people. Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Wil Wheaton posted before the address: “Tonight, Shitler is going to read a speech filled with lies and falsehoods. He will say things that sound reasonable, but won't mean any of them. Pundits will declare him to be Super Totally Presidential For Real This Time. Do not be fooled. He is a liar, a racist, and a disgrace.”
