Jackie Robinson had strong feelings about the National Anthem as well.


Unlike Trump, The Divine Miss M is a NYC treasure.

“Donald Trump calls on Hillary to shut down her foundation.
Meanwhile, we’re all still begging him to choose a more natural color for his.”


David Duke Robocall Urges Voters To Vote For Him And Donald Trump “We’re losing our country.

“Unless massive immigration is stopped now, we’ll be out numbered and outvoted in our own nation. It’s happening,” Duke says. “We’re losing our gun rights, our free speech. We’re taxed to death. We’re losing our jobs and businesses to unfair trade. We’re losing our country. Look at the Super Bowl salute to the Black Panther cop killers.

“It’s time to stand up and vote for Donald Trump for president and vote for me, David Duke for the U.S. Senate.”

In a phone interview with BuzzFeed News on Monday, Duke confirmed that the call was his.

“Everyone is saying they’re voting for Duke and Trump,” he said. “A blind man told me he was voting for Duke and Trump. The response has been overwhelming.”

Here’s the full text of the robocall:

“Hi, this is David Duke. I’m sorry I missed you. I’m running for U.S. Senate. I’ll tell the truth that no other candidate will dare say. Unless massive immigration is stopped now, we’ll be out numbered and outvoted in our own nation. It’s happening. We’re losing our gun rights, our free speech. We’re taxed to death. We’re losing our jobs and businesses to unfair trade. We’re losing our country. Look at the Super Bowl salute to the Black Panther cop killers. It’s time to stand up and vote for Donald Trump for president and vote for me David Duke for the U.S. Senate. I’d love to hear from you.

YIKES! FBI says foreign hackers penetrated state election systems

The FBI has uncovered evidence that foreign hackers penetrated two state election databases in recent weeks, prompting the bureau to warn election officials across the country to take new steps to enhance the security of their computer systems, according to federal and state law enforcement officials.

The FBI warning, contained in a “flash” alert from the FBI’s Cyber Division, a copy of which was obtained by Yahoo News, comes amid heightened concerns among U.S. intelligence officials about the possibility of cyberintrusions, potentially by Russian state-sponsored hackers, aimed at disrupting the November elections.

Those concerns prompted Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to convene a conference call with state election officials on Aug. 15, in which he offered his department’s help to make state voting systems more secure, including providing federal cyber security experts to scan for vulnerabilities, according to a “readout” of the call released by the department.

Johnson emphasized in the call that Homeland Security was not aware of “specific or credible cybersecurity threats” to the election, officials said. But three days after that call, the FBI Cyber Division issued a potentially more disturbing warning, entitled “Targeting Activity Against State Board of Election Systems.” The alert, labeled as restricted for “NEED TO KNOW recipients,” disclosed that the bureau was investigating cyberintrusions against two state election websites this summer, including one that resulted in the “exfiltration,” or theft, of voter registration data. “It was an eye opener,” one senior law enforcement official said of the bureau’s discovery of the intrusions. “We believe it’s kind of serious, and we’re investigating.”


Operation Taco Bowl???

Not a joke: #OperationTacoBowl is Trump's outreach to Latinos

I can't fit all the things wrong with this in 1 tweet


Orange County Register:

About 100 supporters of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump rallied at Anaheim City Hall on Sunday afternoon, arguing that his support among the Latino community is stronger than has been widely reported.

The rally, organized by Latinos for Trump, was part of an initiative termed Operation Taco Bowl – an apparent reference to a Cinco de Mayo photo of Trump eating a taco bowl with a caption that read, “I love Hispanics.”

Those attending were about half Latino, with most from outside of Orange County. Trump supporters took turns standing beside two mannequin caricatures of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and telling the crowd why they support Trump.


Soooo, 100 people showed up, of which half were actually Latino. In Southern California on a Sunday.

Michael Moore and Bill Maher go on a search for Trump’s tax returns — hilarity ensues

So sitting next 2 the Mets stadium is LaGuardiaAirport-& what do u think is sitting there in full view? Trump's plane! So, we had an idea..

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is willing to release his comprehensive medical records but not his comprehensive taxes.

The self-described billionaire has said that because he’s under an audit by the IRS he won’t release them. The IRS doesn’t prevent any candidate from sharing his or her tax returns and Hillary Clinton has already done so.

So, comedian Bill Maher and activist and filmmaker Michael Moore hatched a plan while at a Mets game this week. They saw that LaGuardia Airport, where Trump parks his plane, was nearby.

The two sprang into action while the plane sat at the airport in New York. They somehow managed to get onto the runway and jokingly claims that they boarded his plane and acquired Trump’s tax returns.

"Bill,"I said,"u know he's guarding his tax returns w/his life & probably carries em w/ him!" Mission accomplished!



Top GOP operative reveals why Trump is in such a HOT MESS: It’s ‘not a real presidential campaign’

On CBS, Dan Senor Says Donald Trump's Unclear Immigration Stances Show It's Not A "Real Presidential Campaign"
Senor: "When You Have A Real Presidential Campaign, You Have Surrogates, You Roll Out Policy, You Coordinate. There's None Of That Going On And It's Chaos"

NORAH O'DONNELL (CO-HOST): And Donald Trump saying he is going to finally give this major speech [on immigration] on Wednesday.


O'DONNELL: Supposedly clarifying this, but isn't this muddling of the issue just bringing more attention what is a divisive issue for someone who's trying to gain Hispanic voters?

DAN SENOR: Absolutely. Look, I don't think they believe they're actually going to reach significant numbers of Latino voters. I think they're trying to reach white educated suburban middle class, upper middle class in the suburbs and exurbs where they're suffering and Republicans can't win without those voters. So they're trying to calm those voters down to say, "Look, we're not as crazy and xenophobic as the media or our opponents say we are." But it also -- just this uncertainty about his position. You guys just showed earlier on the show clips of his surrogates on TV all over the weekend. No two of them said the same thing about his immigration plan. It just speaks to the strains of not having a real presidential campaign. When you have a real presidential campaign, you have surrogates, you roll out policy, you coordinate. There's none of that going on and it's chaos.


Trump wonders how many more African Americans & Latinos need to be shot before they'll vote for him

Morning Joe Openly Mocks Trump With “Amnesty Don” Nickname — And Twitter Explodes

Joe Scarborough went on a tear Monday morning, mocking Donald Trump as “Amnesty Don,” a nickname referencing his shifting rhetoric/position on immigration.

Here’s the key of his rant:

“A lot of people are calling him Amnesty Don.”

“For 14 months Amnesty Don has been putting illegal immigration at the center of Amnesty Don’s campaign… and yet nobody in Amnesty Don’s own campaign can tell you what Amnesty Don’s position is after Amnesty Don won the primaries promising” to deport 11 million people.


Mika Brzezinski: Trump Needs Mental Help

The time has come for a mental health professional to take a look at Donald Trump on the air, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said Monday during a frank discussion of the Republican nominee’s well-being.

Brzezinski began “Morning Joe” by noting tweets sent from Trump’s account Saturday over the death of basketball star Dwyane Wade’s cousin from gun violence in Chicago in which he declared that African-American voters will support him, pointing to the shooting as a symptom that he will solve.

“Morning Joe” devoted a significant portion of its opening block to discussing Trump’s mental health, a day after President Barack Obama’s former campaign manager David Plouffe described him as a “psychopath.”

“You know, I think at other stages of other campaigns a network might be snarky and like get a psychiatrist out,” Brzezinski said, after former Vermont governor and Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean said Trump exhibited traits of narcissism.


Dangling 'dinner' with the GOP nominee - Meet the man siphoning money from Donald Trump

A 25-year-old with no Trump ties raises $1 million by dangling 'dinner' with the GOP nominee.

At a glance, the two websites look virtually indistinguishable. Both feature a photo of Donald Trump, in a suit and red tie, in front of a giant American flag. Both seemingly offer a chance for two to win dinner with Donald Trump.

One is at donaldjtrump.com
; the other is at dinnerwithtrump.org.

The first belongs to Trump’s campaign. The second is a scheme run by Ian Hawes, a 25-year-old Maryland man who has no affiliation with Trump or his campaign and who has preyed on more than 20,000 unsuspecting donors, collecting more than $1 million in the process.

In just its first three weeks of operation, Hawes’ PAC spent more than $108,000 on Facebook ads, offering an opportunity to win “Dinner with Donald Trump” — and netted itself nearly $350,000 in donations, according to federal records.

The biggest chunk of the money raised — $133,000 — went to a company that Hawes founded and owns, CartSoft LLC. The purpose of the payments is described on federal records as “media” and “media purchasing,” though CartSoft’s website describes itself as an online payment-processing platform.

Since its launch, the PAC has collected more than $1 million, Hawes told POLITICO. It has reportedly spent $0 on behalf of Trump
