Hillary Clinton flat-out lied when she claimed during the Democratic Debate on December 19, 2015, that ISIS was showing videos of Donald Trump’s immigration comments as a recruiting tool.

Despite the lack of any proof of the video claim, Team Hillary is refusing to apologize, and instead has fallen back on the...

Throughout Obama’s presidency, we’ve heard him...
