3. Yup, the guy almost lost it

What if he had a firearm? It would have been too late for him to calm down and change his mind.

5. Thats a fu_king reach.

What if he was driving in a car and picked up a yak that was secretly the queen of England in disguise?
What if the Queen Yak granted 3 wishes if you cut off her tail and made Yak tail soup?
What if that soup was poison and turned anyone who ate it into Abe Vigoda?

You have no idea what was in that mans heart.

6. For the record: Not thrown, but picked up and wielded in a menacing manner.

 

Fortunately, removed from the would-be thrower's hands before anyone could be injured.

The video has gone viral.

8. Politifact: Allegations of fraud and misconduct at Nevada Democratic convention UNFOUNDED

 

Claim:
The leadership in Nevada hijacked the process on the floor, ignored the regular procedure and rammed through what they wanted to do

FALSE

13. Politifact is a pro-Hillary sham of a site. Nice try though.

 

Politifact is an arm of the Tampa Bay Times, which recently endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. This endorsement makes me question the fact checkerís coverage and the choices of statements to be checked. Politifact has given Clinton more than double the attention it has given Sanders ó 183 statements from the former compared to 82 statements from the latter.

12. The chair-throwing "incident" NEVER HAPPENED. The Hill campaign has been exposed.

14. New Video of Nevada Dem Convention Shows Someone May Have Been Hit By Chair

http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512028771

In the video below, you can see, first of all, that the guy didn't just raise the chair, he was advancing on the stage with it, and it took two guys to stop him, one of whom was a staffer for the Nevada Democratic Party Executive Director Zach Zaragosa. What you can also clearly see is that just after they fight the chair free, a group of about five or six people are helping up a woman who was knocked down in the fracas:

16. Milking the lie with more lies.

 

I think this tactic may very well sink your candidate.

18. Someone "may have" ?

 

Someone MAY HAVE an over-zealous pro-Hillary bias,
which MAY HAVE distorted their perceptions.
