Bernie Sanders made a dubious statement about how he would quickly get Citizens United overturned as president, indicating that he either 1) doesn’t understand Supreme Court procedure or 2) is doing some glib mainstream-politician-style grandstanding. In other news:
- The U.S.’s post-Paris law requiring extra scrutiny for people who’ve travelled to certain Middle East countries will likely be a drag for journalists and humanitarian workers—and wouldn’t have applied to the couple who perpetrated the San Bernardino attack.
- An apparently intoxicated man is believed to have shot a woman by accident in Washington state at a screening of Michael Bay’s Benghazi film.
- Congress is debating a largely superfluous ISIS-related Authorization for Use of Military Force bill that includes a provision Obama has already said he doesn’t want.
- The National Review published an entire issue about how Donald Trump isn’t conservative and shouldn’t be president, but it probably won’t make a difference to his fans. Trump responded by calling the National Review “sad,” which is an insult he’s used on Twitter at least nine times since November.
- Trump also retweeted a Jeb Bush “joke” made by a white supremacist.
- Ted Cruz is making a big deal out of his health insurance policy having been cancelled (THANKS OBAMACARE) even though he’s worth $3 million and could have easily gotten another policy.
- And: The blizzard is upon us! Here’s what to expect if you live on the East Coast. If you don’t live on the East Coast, you should expect to not be in a blizzard.
Have a good weekend!
