As a group of computer scientists urged the Clinton campaign to seek a voter recount in three states last week, it would be Green Party candidate Jill Stein who would answer their call.
Essentially turning her 2016 website into a Kickstarter campaign, Stein began accepting public donations to fund the recount. Currently, $6.25M of a $7M goal has been raised. Unfortunately, your money may be better spent on a fundraiser for another Ghoulies sequel.
This is a tough one to write. In the wee hours of November 9th, it was announced Donald Trump would be our nation’s 45th President of the United States. Typing that sentence, I feel as if I’m living in the world of Demolition Man… and we all got served a rat burger.
“A vote for the lesser of two evils, is still evil.” It’s an often repeated line used by third party candidates Gary Johnson, Jill Stein and their supporters to describe 2016’s major party candidates. It’s also incredibly ignorant.
Hillary Clinton is not the lesser of two evils. And she certainly hasn’t earned any comparisons to Donald Trump, a man so evil you can only send him back to the hell he came from by reciting passages from the Necronomicon.
Donald Trump’s presidential campaign went into a tailspin Friday evening when audio leaked of the GOP nominee making vulgar comments about women with host Billy Bush during a 2005 taping of Access Hollywood.
Sounding like a character written by Joe Eszterhas, the recently married Trump brags to a Salacious Crumb-like Billy Bush about his failure to sleep with a married woman after taking her furniture shopping.
The first 2016 presidential debate was like watching a political role-play of Greedo shaking down Han Solo in the Mos Eisley Cantina. By the end of the night, Clinton walked away tossing a coin to moderator Lester Holt saying “Sorry about the mess.”
My beautiful home state of Iowa has an incredible history of supporting and paving the way for equality. Iowa was third to recognize interracial marriage, home to the first state university to offer degrees to men and women equally, second state to prohibit segregated schools, first state to elect a woman (Julia C. Addington) to public office, first state to have a female attorney (Arabella Mansfield), site of the oldest mosque in the United States (Cedar Rapids, holla!), third state to legalize same-sex marriage and home to the nation’s first state university LGBT organization (Iowa City, holla!).
During a Friday night LGBT for Hillary fundraiser, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton referred to half of Donald Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables.” Specifically, Clinton cited the “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic” faction of the electorate.
