Scaramucci says it's time for Trump to go: 'How are we all tolerating this?'

NY Post discovers the real cause of America's mass shootings: legal weed

I mean, come on. This one is idiotic, even for conservatives.

Sen. Pat Toomey sang the usual Republican hosannas to assault weapons during an appearance on Fox News today. The gist: They’re “extremely popular,” so we can’t ban them.
