It seems Roger Ailes sent the memo out to the Fox talent that they want Donald J. Trump to take part in their debate slated for tomorrow night in Des Moines, Iowa. During the O'Reilly Factor, Bill-O did his damnedest to convince Trump to reconsider showing up for Thursday's event. Show More Summary

The Five's Eric Bolling implored Donald Trump to make a deal since he's the King of the Deal, so he would participate in Fox News' Thursday night GOP presidential debate. Talk about being a pathetic, suck up. ERIC BOLLING (CO-HOST): Donald if you're listening, hopefully he's listening. Show More Summary
Stephen Colbert had a lot of fun at the expense of The Democratic Town Hall.
Donald Trump got two big endorsements today. One was from Jerry Falwell Jr., who heads Liberty University, the school founded by his father. The other was from this guy: Arizona's tough-talking "Sheriff Joe" Arpaio endorsed Donald Trump...Show More Summary
No one should be surprised that Tony Perkins "personally endorsed" Ted Cruz. Cruz has adopted the Huckabee/Santorum mantle to court Iowa's wingnut Christianists, so be it. Three points about this announcement that shouldn't be missed: 1. Show More Summary
Bernie Sanders met with President Obama this morning in the Oval Office. Sanders called it "a positive and constructive meeting" which included "a little bit of politics." Of course it did. My hunch is this was an opportunity for Obama...Show More Summary
Let's be honest about that first GOP debate hosted by Brett Baier and Megyn Kelly: we were all impressed that Megyn asked Donald Trump some substantive questions. Of course, the backlash from Trump and his sycophants somehow made the man even more popular, contrary to what usually happens to candidates when they appear so defensive. Show More Summary
There's a live stream set up at the Malheur refuge with the remaining militants, who seem to be quite excited about "staring death right in the face." It's a little like a train wreck, but they think it's a "modern American revolution". Watch...Show More Summary

During Fox News' Special Report with Bret Baier, they played an in-house video FOX produced about the New Hampshire voter ID law that Republicans recently enacted. They went through some of the details of the new guidelines until they...Show More Summary
We don't celebrate violence or loss of life here at C&L. But the arrest of the rest of them? Couldn't happen to a nicer group of, um, "right wingin’, bitter clingin’, proud clingers of our guns" survivalists. @crooksandliars And so ends the dreams of pathetic little boys who want to dress up and play soldier in the woods.

Reporter JJ McNab posted McVeigh associate Gary Hunt's call to arms to Twitter Tuesday night. Apparently from an email blast, it calls for "all good men to come to the aid of their country, after claiming that Lavoy Finicum was "murdered by the FBI" and Ryan Payne was shot. Show More Summary
