He also complained about fake news and criticized North Korea. Watch his speech here.

  • The director of the federal Office of Government Ethics, Walter Shaub Jr., announced today he was stepping down six months before his term was scheduled to end.

  • In "tell me something I don't know" news of the day, a crazy plan for an elevated bus in China that would straddle traffic was a big scam.
  • We've seen folks on the left stage fake hate crimes to implicate Trump supporters. Here's a Trump supporter getting caught trying to do the same thing to them with fake anti-Trump vandalism.
