Well, why didn't you say so?

Only on Fox News would you see this kind of reaction to First Lady Michelle Obama's triumph of a speech at the DNC Monday night. If you recall, she used the line about the White House being built by slaves, a reference she's used before...

Your kid is way more likely to be poisoned by crayons than by marijuana

By Christopher Ingraham July 28 at 7:00 AM

A new study in the journal JAMA Pediatrics is making waves this week with the news that there's been a sharp uptick in emergency-room visits and poison-control calls for marijuana poisoning among children in Colorado.

The study found that the number of marijuana-related hospital visits for children under the age of 10 more than doubled since the opening of Colorado's recreational marijuana market, from seven in 2013 to 16 visits in 2015. Marijuana-related poison control calls for young kids also rose sharply over that period, from 25 to 47.

Opponents of marijuana legalization were quick to jump on the findings.

FAIL: North Carolina GOP Mocks Tim Kaine For Lapel Pin Honoring His U.S. Marine Son

FAIL: North Carolina GOP Mocks Tim Kaine For Lapel Pin Honoring His U.S. Marine Son
Democratic vice presidential candidate was wearing a Blue Star lapel pin.

Careful with that Twitter finger.

The North Carolina Republican Party, which boasts on Facebook of its “digital know how,” took to Twitter to call Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine “shameful” for wearing “a Honduras flag pin on his jacket but no American flag” during his speech on Wednesday night.

Just one problem: It wasn’t the flag of Honduras, but rather the symbol recognized by the Department of Defense for Blue Star Families ― the families of those who serve in the military.

Trump Campaign Chief Dodges Question On Trump's Financial Ties With Russia

Source: TPM

Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort said Wednesday morning that Trump does not have business interests in Russia, but his answers to questions about Trump's relationship to Russia during an interview with CBS' "This Morning" were vague and left unanswered some of the remaining questions about the extent of Trump's financial ties with Russian interests.

"Trump tweeted yesterday that he has zero investments in Russia, but does Russia have investments in Trump? Would Mr. Trump be willing to release his tax returns to provide transparency on this issue?" CBS' Norah O'Donnell asked Manafort Wednesday morning.

"Mr. Trump has said that his taxes are under audit, and he will not be releasing them," Manafort said in response. "It has nothing to do with Russia. It has nothing to do with any country other than the United States and his normal tax auditing processes."
