Donald Trump takes credit for Ford jobs John Kasich saved in 2011?

Earlier today Donald Trump took a victory lap over news that Ford had decided to move jobs from a manufacturing plant in Mexico to Ohio. The only problem is that these jobs were moved from Mexico to Ohio in 2011, thanks to John Kasich.

First up, here’s what Trump wrote originally:

And later on, he RT’d a fan who sent a link to back up the claim:

That link is to asite calledPrntly(whatever that is) and here’s what it says about the news, with no link:

CNN Money reports that Ford is moving its facility, originally slated for Mexico, back to the United States, where it will employ 1,000 factory workers in struggling Youngstown, Ohio.

Janelle Monae: Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley were under-appreciated by black Americans

http://twitter.com/#!/JanelleMonae/status/200787614616387584

R&B/soul singer Janelle Monae is a talented musician who deeply appreciates talented musicians who came before her, like guitarist Jimi Hendrix and  reggae great Bob Marley. Tonight she shared her thoughts on Hendrix and Marley after watching a powerful new documentary about Marley. In particular, she is angry that the two music legends did not receive more support from black America before their untimely deaths:

I am just angered that BLACK America did not embrace Bob Marley or Jimi Hendrix on radio like they should have. Angered.

People wait until an artist (jimi hendrix/Bob Marley) has passed away to support and acknowledge. makes me sick to my stomach.

Rappers Ice T and 2 Chainz tweet photo clowning around with guns, one pointed at head

http://twitter.com/#!/2chainz/status/322161478608236544

The gentleman on the left recklessly pointing a gun at his head is vulgar rapper 2 Chainz. The gentleman on the right is rapper Ice T, a.k.a. Detective Odafin “Fin” Tutuola from the TV drama “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”

2 Chainz explained that it was just all part of his working day of fun, games, and entertainment:

Ice T (who earned some praise from conservatives for his defense of the Second Amendment earlier this year) tweeted the gun play photo, too:

Many fans were not impressed, however, with the clowning around:

Paging Hollywood hypocrites who rail about America’s unconscionable gun culture.

Oh, wait. Violent rappers glamorizing the thug life are immune from liberals’ “root-cause” scrutiny and blame.

Nothing to see here, move along …
