Like I said, the original statement was poorly put and the FBI was going to clean it up. It's easy to make a rhetorical misstep after a grueling 12-hour hostage situation, especially when you are trained in hostage negotiation, not antisemitism. In any case, good to see this.
Newest FBI statement on Colleyville just in - per Fox’s @JakeBGibson: “This is a terrorism-related matter, in which the Jewish community was targeted, and is being investigated by the Joint Terrorism Task Force.”

His curveball was nasty. That’s why I sat on the fastball with him
The fastball gets the glory, and rightfully so, but the pitch that made Nolan Ryan so tough was the curve. You're all locked in for a 102 mph fastball and ... ploop. Sit down.

The replies to this are really something. Folks genuinely believe the idea that Trump still dominates his party is some media fantasy.
Trump's definition of loyalty is that someone owes him in perpetuity, and whatever he decides he wants, if he does something for them. Yet in DeSantis case, few think he would have won his 2018 primary without Trump nytimes.com/2022/01/16/us/fl…

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott disparaged fans for throwing bottles, debris at players. Then Prescott was told the fans were aiming for officiating crew. Prescott retracted. “A credit to them then.”
