    The View co-host Ana Navarro confronted Charlie Crist, a Democrat, saying she’s “not thrilled” with the choice between him and incumbent Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis in Florida’s gubernatorial race. “Charlie, you and I have known each other for 25 years,” said Navarro during Friday’s show. “That’s right,” said Crist, who was the Sunshine State’s governor between 2007 and 2011. “We’ve got history. I was very disappointed with you as governor. I’ve been a very harsh critic of yours, and so I too give you credit for showing up and sitting next to me because I’m not going to go easy on you,” said Navarro, taking a shot at DeSantis for declining to appear on the show. “Okay, that’s fair,” said Crist. “I wouldn’t expect you to.” “Fasten your seat belts, everybody,” said co-host Joy Behar. “I think I’m like a lot of Floridians who, frankly, are not thrilled with either candidate and I have to choose one,” lamented Navarro, followed by her doing the sign of the cross. Navarro is Catholic. “God bless you,” said Crist. “May the force be...
    APPARENTLY, Premier League chiefs launched an "emergency review" of the two VAR howlers which robbed West Ham and Newcastle of points this weekend. How thrilling and fast-moving of them. Let’s regard them as the fourth emergency service and give them a little clap on our doorsteps every Thursday night, eh? 2West Ham were controversially denied an equaliser against Chelsea at the weekendCredit: Getty If they want a meaningful review, then here’s an effective conclusion — scrap VAR altogether. Abolish the whole rotten shooting match. This is the one solution everyone in football seems too terrified of suggesting. While this week’s victims — Newcastle boss Eddie Howe, along with Hammers manager David Moyes and skipper Declan Rice —  complained long and hard about the embarrassing shambles of it all, they stopped short of calling for VAR to be binned off. Everybody keeps parroting the lie that “VAR is not the problem, it’s the individuals operating it”.

    The two top Minnesota events of the summer are soon to get underway, The Great Minnesota Get Together and The Great Minnesota Let’s Not Get Together. The first is the Minnesota State Fair that kicked off Thursday in Falcon Heights. The other is the political parlor game that begins at adjournment of the regular session of the state Legislature and involves speculation of whether and when a special session will be convened. The former has much better odds of happening than the later, which is true every year except during the pandemic when the fair was canceled and special sessions occurred every month. Our return to quasi-normalcy means when the fair kicks off, the politicians who flock to the grounds can talk about not having a special session. Article continues after advertisement Why not? Six reasons. Both parties would rather talk about the issues of a special session than convene a special session. When Gov.

    (CNN)Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told an audience in Kentucky on Monday that he believes democracy in the United States is on solid ground and said he expects the outcome of the upcoming midterm elections "to be very, very close either way" in the Senate.McConnell did not repeat his assertion -- which received widespread attention last week -- that the House will be easier to flip to Republican control than the Senate. But he said during the event, "flipping the Senate -- what are the chances? It's a 50/50 proposition. We've got a 50/50 Senate right now, we've got a 50/50 nation and I think the outcome is likely to be very, very close either way."Asked later to elaborate, McConnell said, "well, Senate races are statewide. They're just different in nature from individual congressional districts. Twenty of my members up and only 14 of the Democrats, so that's to their advantage. Many of these states are purple states and could go either way. I think it's just going to be a really close race."The comments come as the 2022 midterm...

    InfoWars founder and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones wants Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) running for president in 2024, something the controversial Republican hinted is something she could be considering. In a conversation on InfoWars about the 2024 presidential election, Jones mentioned Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and former President Donald Trump as potential candidates and whether Greene would be interested in joining either ticket as a vice presidential candidate, but he quickly jumped onto Marjorie Taylor Greene 2024. “I think you would poll better and be a better candidate than DeSantis and Trump, so would you take a VP slot with either one of them — or I’d go ahead and just back you for president,” Jones said this week in a clip flagged by David Edwards on Twitter. Greene laughed off the idea out first, but Jones barreled forward. “I’m serious. You’re just as smart or smarter than both of them,” Jones said. “And you got the guys we need. Everybody loves you. I’m serious. We need to think about MTG president here.” Jones then recommended another woman run...
    A THRIFTY mum-of-four has revealed how she manages to feed her family for free, without stepping inside a single supermarket.

"Free speech is making a comeback," tweeted Rep.

    A puzzling optical illusion appearing to conceal pictures of two different animals is sure to put your eyesight to the test. The image shows either a cat or a moose hidden in a black, white and purple scene with viewers baffled to discover both the animals disappear when you look closely at the image.   The viral puzzle claims to be based on the lateralization of a person's brain function, meaning they're more likely to spot a certain animal based on whether their brain is left or right sided.  Sharing the illusion, Twitter user Tom Hicks wrote: 'Depending on how your brain works, (left or right brain) you'll either see a cat or a moose in this pattern.

In an interview with federal agents last summer, Matthew Taylor Coleman, 40, who had become obsessed with the alt-right conspiracy group QAnon prior to killing kids Kaleo, 2, and Roxy, ten months, 'discussed time travel, teleportation, [his kids] telling him about babies being placed in fireworks, food, and walls,' the filing states.  According to the warrant filed in US District Court for the District of California February 17, Coleman ranted to agents after confessing to the double murder, saying he was 'either crazy or the only person left on Earth that is a true man.'  Explaining why he killed his two kids, Coleman 'mentioned during the interview that "Q" was actually talking to him' ahead of the murders, the filing states, referring to the eponymous, anonymous online persona that set off the conspiracy movement in 2017.  California surf instructor Matthew Coleman, who confessed to killing his two kids...
    (CNN)There's a tendency when a new poll comes out to look at the so-called "topline" numbers -- presidential approval being the main one -- and then move on. But it's oftentimes in the guts of the data where you find the real story. Good national polling rewards deep dives, but people don't often make them.I wanted to do just that with a new survey from the Pew Research Center. The topline? Just 41% of Americans approve of the job President Joe Biden is doing, while 56% disapprove. Which is bad! But that number doesn't even scratch the surface of all the bad news that's in the poll for Biden.Here are eight OTHER numbers that tell the full story:1. 44%. That's the percentage of Americans who say they are either "very" or "somewhat" confident that Biden can handle the challenges posed by Covid-19.

    Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas tore into Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for 'playing the victim' after she repeatedly railed against Twitter over its suspension of her account for posting 'covid misinformation.'  And the lawmaker said she was either a Democrat or an 'idiot' after she went after him for saying the FEMA should set up COVID testing sites to help counter the rapid spread of the Omicron variant, which saw a stunning daily 1 million coronavirus infections Monday.

    Former President Donald Trump said he believes that Jewish Americans are not interested in Israel anymore, according to clips from a podcast interview. Trump argued Jewish Americans have abandoned support for Israel, instead pointing to white Evangelicals, who have historically expressed strong support for the Middle Eastern nation, as the country's strongest backers, saying, "Evangelical Christians love Israel more than the Jews in this country." "The Jewish people in the United States either don't like Israel or don't care about Israel," Trump told Israeli journalist Barak Ravid in a clip released on an episode of Unholy: Two Jews on the News on Friday.

    (CNN)Finding jurors to sit in the trial for the three men charged in Ahmaud Arbery's killing is proving difficult in the Glynn County, Georgia, courtroom where jury selection began this week.Hundreds of people have been summoned, and from the 60 people who have been questioned since last Monday, many said they have already formed strong opinions about the case, know the defendants or are scared to sit. They point to potential consequences specific verdicts may have on the community. One prospective juror said that while she doesn't know much about the case itself, she has seen Facebook headlines and "I run with Ahmaud" bumper stickers across town. She expressed concern about how polarizing the case has been among the community.Ahmaud Arberys father says he is praying for the right jury as selection continues"I think it would be naive to think there couldn't be real world repercussions," the woman said, adding she wouldn't let fear stop her from trying to weigh the case fairly.

    Photo via Erick Erickson on Facebook. The sweeping GOP victories Tuesday night in Virginia and elsewhere should convince those peddling conspiracy theories about the 2020 election being stolen to “STFU,” wrote Erick Erickson in a Facebook post published shortly after midnight Eastern Time Wednesday morning. Erickson began the post by saying that he was “fueled by bourbon and cold pizza” following the wins by Republicans in Tuesday’s elections and the Atlanta Braves in the World Series. “You idiots have spent a year peddling the fiction the 2020 election was stolen because you were so busy humping Trump’s leg that you never really even tried to convince persuadable voters to vote,” wrote the conservative radio host. Erickson pointed out several examples of major losses by the Democrats Tuesday evening, elections they logically could have won if they were actually stealing elections — not to mention ones that would have been far simpler to steal than the 2020 presidential race, a nationwide election with 50 different state legal systems and an Electoral College threshold to reach. “The Democrats literally lost Virginia, a state...
    For months, years even, the accusations have piled up against Prince Andrew, always denied by him but left unchallenged with nothing more than an apparent vow of silence. Yet this omerta has proved to be anything but self-protective. The prince’s reputation is in the gutter and the good name of the wider Royal Family has been soiled by the fallout. Now, however, the gloves are off. Andrew’s adversarial American lawyers have come out fighting to confront the sexual abuse claims that have swirled about the head of the Queen’s favourite son for so long. The question is will it work, or might their aggressive intervention risk damaging the prince even more? Andrew's lawyers accused Miss Roberts of only suing Andrew in the hope of securing ‘another pay day’ Anyone who calls in ‘evidence’ from a New York tabloid newspaper by way of wreaking vengeance is entitled to have their motives seriously examined. And that is precisely what happened yesterday in the wake of the 36-page motion his legal team submitted to dismiss the civil action brought in the US courts by...
    Author and historian Victor Davis Hanson said Friday that President Joe Biden, through his Afghanistan withdrawal strategy and process, has birthed the most powerful and well-equipped terror state in the Earth's history. Hanson told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" the Delaware Democrat and his staff and military brass have acted "nonchalant" about the fact they just gifted $90 billion in weapons to the Taliban. "I think we are underestimating it, Tucker. If you look at all the military aid that we have given Israel since the founding of the Jewish State, this is about 85% of that [which we gave] over a 70 year period. We are all worried about the new aircraft carrier Gerald Ford [at] $12 billion; the most expensive aircraft carrier in history. We could have had 7 of them for the price of weapons that we have left in Afghanistan," he said. Video"So this is the greatest loss of military equipment in the history of warfare by one power. It’s absolutely staggering, and yet, we take it so nonchalantly: The people responsible for this should be either...
    As the legal battle between Scarlett Johansson and Disney continues for the premiere of ‘Black Widow’, new voices from the Marvel house join the debate. The last to give her opinion has been Elizabeth Olsen, Scarlet Witch in UCM, who has not hesitated to support her companion in battles. It was in an interview for Vanity Fair with Jason Sudeikis (‘Ted Lasso’) when they both asked about the conflict: “I think she is a strong woman,” says Olsen, “Literally when I read it I thought ‘Good for you Scarlett »”. Also, for the actress of ‘Scarlet Witch and Vision’ there is one thing that is undeniable: “When it comes to actors and what they’re going to win, it’s a matter of contracts. Either it is or it is not in the contract. “ Sudeikis however, is a little more lax with the controversy, although it also emphasizes the unique experience of going to the rooms: “This thing (he says, pointing to the TV) is as good as any movie theater and they are getting cheaper and cheaper.

    The highest priority for any sovereign government is the protection of its citizens from danger – foreign and domestic. We count on our government to be watchful. It is troubling then how lax we have become since the end of the Cold War, despite the emergence of new international threats – not least those posed by the extraordinary rise of China and its ever-tightening grip on world affairs. Beijing runs the second most powerful economy in the world and is a major trading partner for Britain and America. Many jobs rely upon the huge investments it has made. China has found its way into Britain’s strategic telecommunications, into our universities and our nuclear industry. China and Russia are expanding into both Africa and South America, too, buying up stakes in mineral resources and energy distribution Influential figures in the West want us to treat the Chinese as if they were equally responsible members of the global community, ignoring the serious threat to our way of life they already represent. But we must not allow ourselves to be lulled into...
    A new coronavirus mutation known as the lambda variant that is thought to have increased resistance to vaccines could be resistant to vaccines has appeared in the United States. Also known as C.37, the lambda variant was first discovered in Peru in November 2020. Peru has been one of the countries hit hardest by the pandemic, with 595 COVID-19 deaths per 100,000 people, the highest in the world. Peru has relied heavily on the Chinese vaccine known as Sinopharm, which is 79% effective at preventing hospitalizations. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are 94% effective against hospitalization. The lambda variant has since spread to eight countries in South America and 41 countries around the world, according to global science initiative GISAID. “There are currently more than 1,300 Lambda (C.37) sequences in the U.S. as of August 4, 2021, and the Lambda variant has been identified in 44 states,” a spokesperson with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently told Newsweek.

    The mayor of Valencia, Joan Ribó, announced this Thursday that the next Fallas festivities may not be celebrated in the month of March and that we will have to wait for “a more convenient situation.” Asked about this circumstance, Ribó has assured that the City Council “is very concerned that the Fallas world continues with its activity and that is why it wants to help it, because it is essential for the continuity of these important festivals for Valencia and its metropolitan area”.

    President Donald Trump cursed out Vice President Mike Pence in a furious phone call demanding that Pence overthrow the presidential election results, it has been revealed. On January 6, hours before his mob of loyalists stormed the U.S. Capitol as Pence presided over a joint session of Congress, Trump called the vice president's residence with a final, desperate plea.  'You can either go down in history as a patriot, or you can go down in history as a p***y,' Trump warned Pence on the call, two people briefed on the conversation told the New York Times.  Pence, who had remained a quiet and loyal No. 2 throughout Trump's term, was finally at the breaking point -- and likely realized that his refusal to go along with Trump's illegal plan would cost him politically with Trump's base and scuttle any chance of a future presidential bid.  'You can either go down in history as a patriot, or you can go down in history as a p***y,' Trump warned Pence on a call the morning of January 6, as Congress was...
    The Washington Football Team (6-9) has had a roller-coaster rebranding season under coach Ron Rivera. Washington is on the brink of winning the NFC East in Week 17. If it can pull it off, it would be its first division title since 2015. Here’s how WFT can end that four-season drought in its 2020 NFL regular-season finale: MORE: NFL playoff clinching scenarios for every team in Week 17 1. Washington beats the Eagles Washington needed a massive rally to beat the Eagles at home in Week 1. Now they will try to get a long-awaited season sweep on the road. With the victory, Washington would be 7-9. Should the Cowboys also win to get to 7-9, Washington owns the head-to-head tiebreaker.

    A TikTok user has women around the country running to the store to pick up Mucinex — or avoiding it at all costs — after she claimed the over-the-counter cold medicine can help you get pregnant. Julia Schuller, who is known as @juliasendojourney on the platform, shared that she saw an increase in her fertility after she took Mucinex to battle COVID-19. The TikTok has been viewed more than 8.5 million times and left many people stunned.  The 25-year-old from Pennsylvania explained that she regularly tracks her fertility because she has endometriosis and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and noticed the spike.   Say what? Julia Schuller, who is known as @juliasendojourney on TikTok, shared that she saw an increase in her fertility after she took Mucinex to battle COVID-19 Umm: The 25-year-old from Pennsylvania claimed the over-the-counter cold medicine 'helps you get pregnant'  'Yes, Mucinex-D did help me get better while having COVID, but Mucinex-D also helps some other things.

    Tennis legend Marat Safin was one of the most flashy players during his time. The big Russian was quite a character, often known for his emotional outbursts and blazing temper. Whenever he stepped on the court, fans would expect some kind of drama. Marat was also known to be outspoken.  The former World No. 1 also has a sister, Dinara Safina. Both of them were ranked as the world’s best players (World No. 1), which was the first time that a pair of siblings held the top rankings in men’s and women’s tennis, respectively. Safin was an exceptional player, winning two Grand Slams. He won the US Open in 2000 and the Australian Open in 2005. He eventually retired in 2009. Marat Safin: “No Point if You Can’t Challenge Top Players” Recently, while speaking on his retirement, he said, “Either you are in the top five, or nowhere. I didn’t want to play the 11th, 12th, 20th ranked. Either everything or nothing. Poking around with children on some kind of courts, getting tired, and running around with a sore knee is just...
    (CNN)It's been 20 days since the 2020 election. But there are still a handful of House races that have not been projected as victories for either party, due either to votes still being counted or an extremely small margin between the two candidates. And no margin is closer than in Iowa's 2nd district.In that southeastern Iowa district -- vacated by Democratic Rep. Dave Loebsack after seven terms -- here's where the race currently stands between Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks and Democrat Rita Hart, according to CNN's vote tracker:Miller-Meeks: 196,867 (50.0%)Hart: 196,828 (50.0%)Read MoreDo the math: Miller-Meeks leads Hart by 39 votes out of 393,695 votes cast and counted. (As of Monday morning, 89% of the vote was in.)As you might expect with such a close margin, the two campaigns are fighting for every single vote. Miller-Meeks declared victory, but Hart called for a recount of all 24 counties in the district on November 12. The latest front in that fight is in Scott County, where Miller-Meeks campaign alleged Sunday that the recount is "illegal" because it is being done both by...
    As I write, the 2020 presidential election is too close to call. The current Electoral College vote count narrowly favors Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden: 238 to 213. However, there are many votes still to be counted and the race could still go either way. With more votes being counted in the “Blue Wall” states—Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania—voting tallies have moved slightly in Biden’s favor. There are also tight races in North Carolina, Georgia, and Nevada that have not yet been called for either candidate. Yet, the margins are razor-thin, and in all likelihood, we will not know the results until later this week. However, regardless of who wins, either former Vice President Joe Biden or President Donald Trump will have the enormous responsibility of bringing a fractured and deeply divided country together. Neither will have a mandate. Neither will have a clear ratification of their agenda. Nor will there be a clear mandate for control of the Senate.

    President Donald Trump went on the attack against Joe Biden at his first campaign rally after their presidential debate, calling his rival a 'liar' and 'corrupt politician.' He started off hitting his Democratic rival on his oil policy. 'This is probably the most shocking division ever made,' Trump said. 'Could be one of the worst mistakes' in presidential political history, he argued.   Biden's pledge to 'transition away from the oil industry' shook up that energy sector, leaving the Democratic nominee to try and clarify his stance, saying he would transit it out 'over time.'  The president argued it would hurt Biden in some of the Midwest states both candidates are courting. 'Texas are you watching. Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Ohio are you watching,' he said. Pennsylvania and Ohio are critical states for winning the White House. Democrats are also making a play for Texas, which has been trending blue.   President Trump at his rally in The Villages, Florida Marine One circled the crowd before landing Florida is considered a must-win for Trump if he wants a second term Trump relieved...
    HURLOCK, Md. (WJZ) — Gov. Larry Hogan on Monday explained his rationale for writing in the late former President Ronald Reagan at the top of the ticket when he cast his ballot for the 2020 election. Late last week, Hogan’s communications director tweeted the governor voted for Ronald Reagan when he submitted his ballot by mail the prior week. Hogan, a Republican, has publicly criticized President Donald Trump for his handling of the coronavirus and his “inflammatory rhetoric” but did not feel Trump’s Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, was a suitable alternative, he said.

    Late last month, 38 members of the University of Denver swimming and diving crew were suspended from team activities through the fall quarter for allegedly attending a large party in violation of COVID-19 safety protocols. But a source tells Westword that some of these athletes have continued throwing bashes so large and boisterous that the Denver Police Department has been notified. The DPD says it has received such complaints but is unable to confirm whether the incidents involved DU students, let alone swimmers or divers. The university can't verify that, either, but a statement provided to Westword contains heavy threats against anyone who might engage in such activities. Meanwhile, the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment reveals that it has imposed quarantines on seven DU Greek houses and hit one sorority with a criminal summons over a get-together that is said to have included several people with the virus.Related Stories Dear Denver Mask Haters: Stop Being A$$holes Trader Joe's COVID-19 Outbreak Part of Yet Another Colorado Record Denver Cites Walmart and More for Violating COVID-19 Health Orders The October 7...
    Even as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect countries around the globe, researchers are hard at work trying to understand what happened and how such tragedies can either be prevented or mitigated in the future. Prominent among these efforts is a new spreadsheet developed by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), where a team is attempting to track what are described as "ARS-CoV-2 Superspreading Events from Around the World" — and Colorado appears all too often on it. The document (accessible on Google Drive by clicking here), currently includes 137 superspread events in this state out of a total 1,521. As noted by Florida's Poynter Institute, which is touting the spreadsheet, the database provides information and brief descriptions about each event's location and whether it took place inside or outside, as well as geographic coordinates for mapping purposes. A wide range of countries is included, from Argentina and Australia to Singapore and Vietnam.Related Stories Hancock: Rising COVID-19 Numbers Put Crackdowns, Shutdown on Table COVID-19 Update: Inside Colorado's Third Wave COVID-19: Polis on Why He's Extending Statewide Mask Order...
    Boulder-based Augustus stumbled into the music world not long after guitarist Jim Herlihy and singer Colin Kelly got drunk at a concert together in 2013. "It was the classic 'get wasted at a show and think how great it would be to start your own band,'" says Herlihy with a laugh. Now 37, Herlihy says he played guitar in college but never imagined performing in real venues. "I didn’t realize I could make the jump from just someone who plays the guitar in your bedroom to someone who could play live. The line was blurred between fan of music and someone who played music."Related Stories Augustus Will Deliver Its New Album by Skateboard...Some Day Psych-Rock Quartet Augustus Talks New Album, Idle Tyler Stanfield's "Whiskey Heart" Isn't Really About Whiskey Songwriter Colin Kelly, 33, had a different experience: "I went to college for music and wanted to do this always, as far back as I can remember."

    Colorado State University-Pueblo will offer a new hemp agriculture degree program next fall, funded in part by the United States Department of Agriculture. CSU-Pueblo already offers other cannabis degree programs and has been home to the Institute of Cannabis Research since 2016; current undergraduates can pursue a bachelor's degree in cannabis biology and chemistry or a minor in cannabis studies. Starting next year, however, students can narrow their studies to focus on industrial hemp, thanks to a new research program starting up at several colleges around the country. CSU-Pueblo's Industrial Hemp Education, Agriculture and Research (InHEAR) program will require students to take courses specifically tailored toward agricultural hemp research and either do an internship with one of CSU-Pueblo’s hemp industry partners or conduct research at the Institute of Cannabis Research. Development of the new curriculum is funded by a $275,000 grant from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture; similar degrees are offered at other colleges across the country, including Cornell University, Murray State University, Santa Rosa Junior College and Dakota College at Bottineau.Related Stories Metro State Adds New Cannabis Hospitality and...
    I have noted before that I grew up in Dubai, one of the United Arab Emirates. From 1980-1990, my family lived in an ungated community in the middle of the city down the street from the Iranian Hospital with the Jumeirah American School just one long block up the road. We walked to school every day. The school changed its name to the American School of Dubai the year after I graduated. It moved locations. The current school at the old location is the Jumeirah Baccalaureate School. My old house is all that remains of my neighborhood. The whole place got leveled and rebuilt, except my house on the corner at 27 Sheikh Rashid Villas, which is now No. 39 on 32b Street, Dubai, UAE. The only reason my house remained is because it became a doctor’s office some time after we moved home in the run up to the first Gulf War. Growing up, our history and geography textbooks all had pages missing or redacted. Anything that referenced Israel got taken out by censors. Maps of the Eastern Mediterranean...
    Actor Ranvir Shorey feels the ones who are coming out to defend the muck in Bollywood are the gatekeepers of the industry. “The ones who come out defending the muck in #Bollywood are either the ‘gatekeepers’, or the ones sucking up to them.

    Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) compared the Democratic and Republican National Conventions, saying there were contrasts that were obvious in the party’s two ideologies. McCarthy contemplated a situation in which the Republicans controlled the House, Senate and the White House. “Think about how much more we could do if this president had a Congress and a Senate that would work for them,” he said. “That’s why we could actually retire Nancy Pelosi if people would go to takethehouse.com because it’s more than just the presidency. This is the nation and the next century. Is it going to be America’s? Are we going to guarantee that tomorrow will be better than today? Because what I watched for the four days of the Democrats and four days of the Republicans, it’s not hard to make a decision now. And it’s not hard to go out and make the case.” “It doesn’t matter if you’re Republican, independent or Democrat, it’s a clear choice here,” McCarthy continued. “Joe Biden is not the same as he...
