In the News

Here is some stuff in the news today...

"Poll: After Trump Tape Revelation, Clinton's Lead Up to Double Digits." This is very good news (and also TERRIBLE NEWS that so many people are still supporting Trump), but we still can't get complacent. There's a month to go. And the only way she wins is if we vote for her.

That said, please know if you DO vote for Clinton you are voting for a demon from hell who smells like sulfur. Sounds legit!

This is such a great response from my Shareblue colleague Matthew Chapman to Donald Trump's comment about jailing Clinton: "Aung San Suu Kyi was imprisoned by political opponents, Clinton worked to free her."

"Khizr Khan: Donald Trump 'Is Not Telling the Truth' About Iraq War, Our Son." This guy. I'm so sorry he's obliged to go through this, but damn if I'm not grateful as hell that he keeps speaking his truth.

[Content Note: Sexual assault] Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway did the rounds defending Trump by saying she's been alone with him and he's never assaulted her. Oh great. Give that guy a fucking cookie.

[CN: Video autoplays at link] Speaking of Conway, did you see SNL's digital short about her day off? Pretty funny!

Mike Pence says he never considered leaving the Trump ticket. Which is: 1. Almost certainly a lie; and 2. If it's true, that actually doesn't say much about him, either.

Black Twitter is amazing, part whatever in an eternal series: "#BenAndJerrysNewFlavor Is Trending, and It's Delicious."

"Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2016 Finalists." These are very good! They should all win!
