Item 1:

At one point, Trump said he hoped his ban “doesn’t take long,” but then he went on about the report that a deposit of $28,500 was made into the account of Syed Farook, the husband in the couple who mounted the San Bernardino attack last week. He said: “How many other checks were sent to people all over the country that had been radicalized? Nobody knew this guy was radicalized. I probably radicalized him.

Only one of these is from The Onion. Whether there’s anything Trump can say that torpedo his candidacy remains all too unclear.

UPDATE: Mother Jones has updated its story, as you can see at the link, and corrected Trump’s quote to “the wife radicalized him.” For perhaps the first time ever in a story involving Donald Trump, subtext has remained subtext rather than becoming text.
