Donald Trump Mocks A Disabled New York Times Reporter
Setup. Last week, Donald Trump claimed that “thousands and thousands” of people in Jersey City turned out to celebrate the dropping of the World Trade Center towers by al Qaeda.

Diebold Stole My Doobies! Stoners Blame “Stolen” Election
For all of the joy the Left takes in declaring that it has a monopoly on facts and data and faith in both – and its insistence that only racists believe fraud at election time is possible – we’re really only one national election loss away from an outbreak of whackadoo conspiracy theories about Republicans stealing elections.
