Never heard of the Bowling Green Massacre? You're not alone...

What she said: That Iraqis caused a "Bowling Green Massacre".

What she was referencing: In 2011, two Iraqi refugees who lived in Bowling Green, Kentucky were charged with terrorism and imprisoned for trying to help get arms to al Qaeda. They weren't, however, planning an attack or "massacre" on U.S. soil.

What she said: That Obama had a 6-month ban on the Iraqi Refugee Program.

What she was referencing: Because of the Bowling Green fiasco, Obama called for a revetting of the approximated 57,000 Iraqi refugees who had recently entered the U.S. This took a while, which caused a back up for refugees trying to enter the U.S. for the 6 months of the review.

Disney is laying off 28,000 workers at its theme parks and experiences and consumer products divisions, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

Why it matters: The coronavirus pandemic has forced the company to close its California theme parks and limit attendance at re-opened parks elsewhere around the U.S. Around 67% of the 28,000 laid off workers are part-time employees, according to Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney's parks, experiences and products division.
