Washington (CNN)It is not fun trying to catch up on fact checking President Donald Trump. We took a Thanksgiving break from our comprehensive counting of the President's false claims. We returned to find a hefty backlog of nonsense. Trump made 41 false claims last week, some of which he spent relaxing in Florida. He made 55 false claims the week before. The economy was the top subject of his dishonesty, with 27 false claims over the two weeks. Many of those economic claims related to his trade war with China; he made 18 false claims about China, 15 about trade (some of which were also about China) and 14 false claims about Ukraine. Trump scattered the dishonesty around multiple events and interviews. His worst showing: 23 false claims during a ranting 53-minute interview with Fox News morning show Fox & Friends. (Before we had time to do a deep dive, we reported it was at least 18 false claims.) Trump added another 15 false claims during his campaign rally in Sunrise, Florida and … [Read more...] about Trump made 96 false claims over the last two weeks

DENVER (AP) — Democratic hopeful Elizabeth Warren announced Thursday she has hired a state director in Colorado and will open multiple offices in the state, the Massachusetts Senator's latest investment in a western Super Tuesday state. Warren has already hired a California state director and opened two offices in that state, the biggest prize on March 3, the Tuesday after the final early state, South Carolina, casts its ballot in the Democratic presidential primary. Warren on Thursday said PaaWee Rivera, who worked on her 2018 Senate campaign in Massachusetts, will run her Colorado operation. She plans to open offices in Denver, Boulder and elsewhere. Colorado's primary is also on March 3, though it has only about one-sixth the number of delegates up for grabs as California. Currently 15 states are scheduled to vote that day. In 2016, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won Colorado's caucus over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. However, the caucus system has been replaced by … [Read more...] about Warren hires director in Super Tuesday state Colorado

The state's Supreme Court ruled Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019, that those comments were "blatantly improper" because one of the foundations of the U.S. legal system is jurors decide the truth, and that Fortune should get a new trial.

Against all odds, Spencer survived. Three years passed and Spencer’s parents noticed he was having strange body movements, like twitching and jerking.

Once the seizures began, they happened one after another, and wouldn’t stop.
