More Paris, more politics

Along with lying about how many whites are shot by blacks, Trump has also claimed that on 9/11 he saw thousands of Muslims celebrating in New Jersey, despite being in NYC at the time. Roy Edroso looks at the right’s continuing condemnation of the Syrian refugees, and its defense of Trump—just because Trump overestimated the number of Muslims hardly proves he’s a liar!
