Politicians are prone to hyperbole when discussing passionate issues, but this whopper from NY Congressman Charlie Rangel will be really tough to surpass. Rep. Rangel told an MSNBC audience, “we’re talking about millions of kids dying, being shot down by assault weapons”.  Millions, Congressman? Millions? As popular rap music MCs like to say: check yourself before you wreck yourself, Congressman. But Charlie Rangel won’t let facts get in the way of a good story. John Carlson responds to the insanely idiotic claims from the Congressman’s MSNBC interview.
