Speaking of credible sources, CNN just stated the Clintons have been paid over $150 million for speeches. Sounds credible but ask yourself. Who is paying this money?

 

Soooo...you don't think Clinton was actually paid that money because the source is CNN?  Or you think that Clinton isn't credible because she was paid on the speaking circuit?  Not sure what you're asking here.

Carson just completed a string of seven paid speeches that commanded fees worth as much as $500,000 in total.

That's the one.  Did that really happen?

I assume Cruz supporters will brush it under the rug and say Hilary did it a few times.

That one says specifically that Ben Carson will be suspending his campaign after tonights caucus. That was definitely not close to what was reported.

So it's only a matter of time before Trump starts playing up an 18-year-old, "always short of cash" Marco Rubio getting arrested for being at a Miami public park known for homosexual prostitution after hours, right?
