Amazing to see a wall of students (mostly women!) protesting Trump.

He's completely unhinged. I think he's been inspired by Trump.

Likewise, Hillary Clinton has occupied every room in the American psyche. She has been loathed and beloved, respected and reviled, and her transition from first lady to a political leader in her own right as a United States senator, then secretary of state, and perhaps soon, president, has involved sour notes that nearly every woman can relate to. She has been not girly enough, not wifely enough, too bold, too ambitious, and too secretive for the tastes of many Americans. But her campaign has affirmed the value of smarts and preparation which every woman at work, at school, and in life, can relate to. Whatever your view of her politics, its clear that Hillary Clinton has run a campaign of substance and ferociousness, taking on an opponent who couldnt be toppled by 16 primary opponents, 15 of them men. If she emerges victorious on November 9, it will be because she did her homework, studied her adversary, learned his weaknesses and exploited them. She will have won, just as much as Trump will have lost.

Can you confirm if this letter was sent to all of your employees urging them to vote for Donald Trump?
David Siegel was the subject of the 2012 documentary film Queen of Versailles.
Apparently this isn't the first time David Siegel has done this. This is from his Wikipedia page:
In a February 2012 interview by Susan Berfield, Siegel elaborated:
"Whenever I saw a negative article about Gore, I put it in with the paychecks of my 8,000 employees. I had my managers do a survey on every employee. If they liked Bush, we made them register to vote. But not if they liked Gore. The week before [the election] we made 80,000 phone calls through my call centerthey were robo-calls. On Election Day, we made sure everyone who was voting for Bush got to the polls. I didnt know he would win by 527 votes. Afterward, we did a survey among the employees to find out who voted who wouldnt have otherwise. One thousand of them said so."
During the 2012 United States elections, Siegel caused controversy and public debate when he sent a mass email to his employees, suggesting that they vote for Republican Party candidate Mitt Romney or he might have to take drastic measures in how he operated the company (including cutting back on his company's workforce). In January 2015, it was noted that his company had experienced "the best year in our history" and he raised his company's minimum wage to $10 per hour.

Ivanka Trump has actively campaigned for her father. If you want to send a message that the Trump brand of hate is not okay, here's a list of stores to boycott (or at least put on notice):
Shannon Coulter's Twitter:
David Duke @DrDavidDuke
Important News! I qualified for the U.S. Senate most important debate in Louisiana on Nov 2. I can't wait to tell truth nobody else dares!
Duke scratched together the minimum five percent support (5.1 percent, to be exact) required for a spot in the November 2 debate at the historically black Dillard University in New Orleans. Hell appear in alongside Republican State Treasurer John Kennedy (24.2 percent), Democrat Foster Campbell (18.9 percent) and three others.
According to Politico, Duke has done very little campaigning, nor has he raised much money. Those two facts dont seem to have discouraged his delusion that hell win, though. Ive got a great chance, he told ABC, adding that I always fly under the radar. If you look at the history of polling me in primary and previous races, Ive always gotten at least two to three times more votes than the polls actually showed.

When I met that man, I had a boyfriend, and he tried to become his friend to get my home telephone number. He got my number and he would call me to invite me out, Hayek said.
When I told him I wouldnt go out with him even if I didnt have a boyfriend, he called well, he wouldnt say he called, but someone told the National Enquirer, the actress said.
Allegedly, Trump (or ― just playing along here ― whoever made the call) told the outlet that it was in fact he who wouldnt go out with Hayek. And the incredulous reasoning as to why he wouldnt date her?
So he bullies women who won't date him...what a surprise.

Clinton expands her battleground-map lead
After one of the craziest weeks we can remember in the 2016 race -- the Access Hollywood audio of Trump, WikiLeaks, the nasty debate in St. Louis, the accusers against Bill Clinton, the accusers against Donald Trump, and plenty of new polls -- here's where the NBC battleground map stands. Hillary Clinton has expanded her lead and now has 287 electoral votes in her column, which is more than the 270 needed to win the White House. Trump has 157 electoral votes in his column, which is down more than 30 for him from last week. And we have 94 electoral votes in Tossup. Last week, our map was Clinton 268, Trump 190, and 80 in Tossup.
ETA: the map itself!
