Monday News: Koch Rips Trump, Cruz; “The 8 A.M. Call”; “Virginia Bucks the Trend”


by Lowell

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, April 25. Also check out President Obama’s press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

  • Video: Sen. Al Franken hilariously mocks Paul Ryan (towards the end of this video).


  • Del. Mark Levine (D-Alexandria/Arlington), responds to this craziness (“Arlington gun store sues critics, says opponents issued death threats”):

    “I, along with 63 others — including fellow Democrats in the General Assembly and in local government — have been sued by the Arlington gun store that just opened in a peaceful residential neighborhood near a child care center despite the vociferous protests of residents who live there.

    The store complains that we 64 have criticized their business and singles me out in particular, because I have urged people not to shop there.

    I will not be intimidated by this flagrant attack on your and my First Amendment rights.”

  • Video: Hillary Clinton ad “Love and Kindness”
