Donald Trump's denial challenged by reporter

Trump knew reporter"Somebody at the financially failing and totally biased New York Times said that, over the years, I have met Mr. Kovaleski," Trump said in a statement. "Despite having one of the all-time great memories, I certainly do not remember him."

The Republican presidential candidate added that Kovaleski "should stop using his disability to grandstand and get back to reporting for a newspaper that is rapidly going down the tubes."

In a story in the New York Times on Thursday, Kovaleski painted a different picture.


New York Times slams Trump's mocking of reporter as 'outrageous'

Donalt TrumpDonald Trump has added a new item to his growing list of presidential campaign firsts: mocking a person’s physical handicap.

During a defense of his widely debunked claim that thousands of people in parts of New Jersey with large Arab populations celebrated the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, Trump performed a derisive impression of New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski — who suffers from a chronic condition that has limited the movement of his arms — at a rally in South Carolina on Tuesday night.


Kentucky Governor Restores Voting Rights To Nonviolent Former Felons

Beshear- Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear (D) signed an executive order on Tuesday that would automatically restore voting rights to a large number of former felons who have served their sentences. The executive order would not apply to individuals who were convicted of violent crimes, sex crimes, bribery or treason.

Beshear, who has served as governor for eight years, said at a press conference that more than 100,000 people would be affected. The Brennan Center for Justice says about 140,000 individuals are immediately eligible, and another 30,000 will be eligible over time.

74% Of Donald Trump's Statements Checked By Politifact Are False

Trump liesFact checkers exist to determine if people are telling the truth. It stands to reason that they will check important statements that are controversial or seemingly false.

No one's going to check if a presidential candidate says, "I love Iowa!," even if it is false, but they will check if a candidate says white people are mostly murdered by Black people, as a graphic in a tweet sent by Donald Trump Sunday claimed. And that got a "Pants on Fire" false rating from Politifact.

We decided to check how many other statements Trump has made were checked by Politifact.


Carson incorrectly taps Jefferson as Constitution craftsman

Carson errs on JeffersonRetired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, already under fire for his foreign policy acumen, is now being criticized for his grasp of history, particularly that of Thomas Jefferson.

In a C-SPAN interview broadcast Sunday, Carson praised Jefferson as a Founding Father who “tried to craft our Constitution in a way that it would control peoples’ natural tendencies and control the natural growth of the government.”

Jefferson, however, did not participate in the development of the U.S. Constitution during a 1787 convention.



Trump: Black protester 'should have been roughed up'

TrumpRepublican presidential candidate Donald Trump is on the defense after coming under attack for saying he observed some U.S. Muslims cheering the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and for the assault of a black protester during his campaign rally.

At the rally in Birmingham, Ala., on Saturday, Trump said he watched "thousands and thousands of people" in Jersey City, N.J., cheer the fall of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, implying some Muslims living in the United States were happy with the deadly attacks.
