Donald Trump is still very popular with the GOP's voters according to 2 recent polls. The NBC/Marist poll has Trump at 17 percent in Iowa, trailing Walker by only 2 points. In NH, Trump is in 1st place with 21 percent. A CNN/ORC national poll of GOP voters also has Trump in 1st place with 18 percent. I'd say Trump's support is VERY solid so he has a license to say just about anything.

I've read that Jeb has raised the most money of all the GOP candidates so this statement about Medicare amounts to throwing that all down the drain:
But that we need to figure out a way to phase out this program for others and move to a new system that allows them to have something – because they’re not going to have anything.”Bush later tried to soften his critique but he didn't manage to sound convincing.

Last March, the National Review half-accepted the verdict of the Free Market Fairy and became officially a non-profit. Since then, it has managed to claim that Bernie Sanders is really a Nazi and that there's no difference between Pres. Obama and The Donald.

I think CNET has the answer:

Microsoft on Monday issued an emergency fix for all supported versions of its Windows operating system, plugging a hole that essentially allowed hackers unfettered access to victims' computers. ... The flaw affects all users of Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and 8.1 and Windows RT, representing two out of every three of the 1.5 billion PCs running Windows around the world.

The initial reports I came across were more or less variants of this:
Brizada, a Chattanooga resident, was shaken and holding back tears as he spoke to CNN, saying his friend was "the coolest guy" who "was always so positive about people."The AP has a significantly different version:
"Whatever caused this to happen, it's not him, it's not normal. That's not how he is," Brizada said.
A man who shot and killed five service members in Tennessee suffered from depression since his early teen years and battled drug and alcohol abuse, spending time in Jordan last year to help clean himself up, a family spokesman said Sunday.
The representative, who spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid unwanted publicity, said relatives of 24-year-old Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez believed those personal struggles were at the heart of last week's attack on a pair of military sites in Chattanooga.
