NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell flubbed an attempt to fact​-​check GOP Sen. Ted Cruz’s reference to a quote by Shakespeare​, inviting some “double, double toil and trouble.”​ Cruz (R-Texas) was discussing the second Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump on Fox News Wednesday when he ​invoked a line from Shakespeare. “It’s reminiscent of Shakespeare [in] that it is full of sound and fury, and yet signifying nothing,”​ he said, ​reciting ​a soliloquy ​from “Macbeth.”

It's a good quote and so obviously true. But for one not so well educated as those using this quote I have my own way of describing this impeachment. It';s a boatload of BULLS***

Every student in my senior high school class had to memorize that quote. But then I didn't go to an IVY league uni. Only an excellent parochial HS.

The most astute observation about this is that Andrea's stupidity is a perfect microcosm of liberal news bias: the media can't be bothered to do the most basic of fact checks in their eagerness to "get" a conservative. They also "know" so much that just isn't so. They're living examples of the Peter principal -- so stupid they don't they are stupid.

She probably didn't take much Shakespeare because it was too hard for her. I like the first part of the quote, "...a tale told by an idiot." Her ignorance was in full view. Maybe she should keep her big mouth shut.

Even my exchange students could have identified the quote. MacBeth is read in Junior English at our local public high school. So is The Crucible, which seems particularly relevant these days.

Following the new "Fortification" playbook, Andrea and her cohorts should simply announce that the claim that Shakespeare was the author of the quote has been debunked and bid the media and tech to remove any arguments to the contrary!

Us, too, #15, and when I visited the Roman Forum, I stood at the actual location where they stabbed Julius Caesar to death. Learning history via Shakespeare's plays was a good thing. It is really amazing that the same paving stones and all the foundation stones and many of the colums of the buildings are there in the Forum, and many of the buildings within a the immediate area are fully standing after 2,000 years. The fully intact arch of Septimius Severus is very close by, but was built later. I walked on the same basalt paving stones that all those ancient Roman senators and leaders trod. And the Pantheon is not too far, still fully intact and beautiful after 2,000 years. Too bad leftist fools like Mitchell are so uneducated. But if they were smart and educated, they wouldn't be leftists, would they?

I texted the full Macbeth quote to my Obama worshiping son-in-law the night Obama accepted the nomination at the 2008 Democratic convention. What a lot of fuss over an obvious narcissistic fool. That quote has applied to so many over the last twelve years. The current president pretty much tops all fools. He is, actually, a "tool fool" being used by bigger fools.

It was a deputy sheriff, there to serve him divorce papers from his wife. As part of the proceedings, he would have to vacate the home they shared. After flirting with renting a nearby place, the Democrat decided to move in with family in Indiana – and abruptly abandon his congressional bid for an open seat against Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene. Van Ausdal didn’t initially want to share those details, which were provided with his approval Friday by his campaign aide, Michael McGraw.

Who needs comedy when you have politics?

In the 30-second video, Williams, who would have turned 69 last month, doesn’t mince words. “There’s always ramblin’ Joe Biden,” said Williams in a stand-up routine. “Joe says s - - t that even people with [Tourette syndrome] go, ‘No.’ ” The resurfaced bit began circulating this week, and it came just days before Biden — the presumptive Democratic nominee — gave a disastrous interview with black and Hispanic journalists.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.
