Trump: Forget "Person"--I Should Be "MAN" Of The Year!

Did his mother not love him enough? Why is he such a piece of shit?

I still hope he's just trolling all of us and somehow we'll wake up from this nightmare and Hillary could still become president.

A Guy In A Trump Shirt Carried A Gun Outside Of A Virginia Polling Place.


WASHINGTON ― A man wearing a Donald Trump shirt and carrying a weapon stood outside a voting location in Loudoun County, Virginia, on Friday. Authorities in the nation’s richest county are apparently OK with that.

Erika Cotti encountered the man when she went to vote at the county’s registrar’s office, she told The Huffington Post. Virginia doesn’t have early voting per se, but voters can cast in-person absentee ballots for a host of reasons, like if they’re going to be out of the county or city on Election Day.

“I had my 9-year-old son with me. I felt intimidated,” Cotti said. “And I had to explain to my 9-year-old why a man with a 357 magnum is standing outside the polling station.”

Cotti said the man offered her a Republican sample ballot, which she declined.

“He’s like, ‘Who are you going to vote for, crooked Hillary?’ And I was like, that’s really none of your business,” Cotti said, adding that the man was standing in the sidewalk outside of the office when they left and blocking their path.

A lot of dead voters look like women and minorities. Dude was just checking for zombies and needed to defend himself from dangerous mothers with children. You never know...

Trump's going to lose Virginia and the election. Keep America Great!

A journalist at Standing Rock was shot by police for no reason—and caught the awful moment on video


As peaceful protests over the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline again turn violent, one journalist near the Standing Rock Sioux Indian reservation in North Dakota captured shocking video showing herself being shot by police out of nowhere as she conducted an interview.

Erin Schrode, an activist and journalist, was doing an interview at the edge of the Cantapeta Creek when police shot her with a rubber bullet. In her video of the incident, Schrode can be heard screaming, “Ow!” before crumbling to the ground.

In a Facebook post, Schrode, who has written for Fusion in the past, said she was badly shaken after “militarized police” shot her at “point-blank range.”

Speaking to me on Thursday, Schrode said that, when she was shot, she couldn’t fully comprehend what had just happened but just remembered being in “excruciating pain.”

“I couldn’t fathom that I’d just been hit. Why would they target me? Why would they shoot anyone?” she said. “There was absolutely nothing violent, aggressive, provocative going on at the protests yesterday.”

Seriously, no reason for this.

Wheelchair Dating Questions You’re Too Afraid To Ask

Women without legs like a lot of the same activities as women with legs. If in doubt, it's best to politely ask at the risk of sounding stupid, instead of assuming.

Rush Limbaugh suggests ‘the left’ is too uptight about sex having to be consensual

Rush Limbaugh suggests ‘the left’ is too uptight about sex having to be consensual: ‘here come the rape police’


Rush Limbaugh appears convinced sexual assault is a bogus concept invented by "the left."

As Donald Trump was in boiling hot water Wednesday evening after numerous media reports alleged he has sexually abused several women, the boisterous right-wing talk show host appeared mostly upset about the fact that rape is illegal.

"The left will promote and understand and tolerate anything, as long as there is one element. Do you know what it is? Consent," Limbaugh said during his namesake radio show Wednesday. "If there is consent on both or all three or all four, however many are involved in the sex act, it's perfectly fine. But if the left ever senses and smells that there's no consent in part of the equation then here come the rape police."

Limbaugh could need a brush up on some U.S. law, since what he's blasting the so-called "left" for policing is what "the rape police" — also known as the police — must enforce according to chapter 47 of U.S. Code 10.

The statute asserts that any sexual act administered "without the knowledge or consent" of the other party constitutes rape or sexual assault.

On Wednesday, at least five women accused Trump of actions that could fall under what that law defines as sexual assault.

So, no matter what Limbaugh might think about sex and consent; he's essentially criticizing "the left" for attempting to uphold the laws of this country.

Oh yeah. You know a lot of them are thinking it. Consent is too much to ask for. That's like expecting a purple unicorn pony for Christmas. Ain't nobody got time for that. Just take what you want like a viking!
