Curators remove "tons of comments" from Trump's "ASK ME ANYTHING" Reddit page. USA! USA! USA!

Donald Trump’s “Ask Me Anything” Reddit event turned out to be more like, ask me some things and the curators may delete them.

The Republican nominee hosted an AMA on Wednesday night from his plane on his way to Toledo, Ohio, where he will host a rally.

Trump answered some softball questions (his answers are here). But some questions on the site were deleted. In the host’s media page, they said they’d be removing comments and called it a “mark of pride.”

“Yes, the AMA will have tons of removed comments. That's sort of a mark of pride for us,” the site's info page said.


ClickHole: Hillary And Bernie Pinned A Rabid Coyote Between Their Two Cars

Hillary And Bernie Pinned A Rabid Coyote Between Their Two Cars


Yes! THIS is what a unified party looks like.

In a touching gesture, Bernie reached out to Hillary and had her meet him in her car at the parking lot of a local Walgreens, where the wild animal had been ripping open trash bags and acting aggressively toward nearby dogs. Soon after she arrived, Sanders revved his engine and nodded at Hillary as she revved back. Both cars then lurched forward, successfully trapping the coyote between their bumpers, where it remained until help arrived.

It was a heartening display of the type of cooperation that’s essential in today’s highly divided political landscape. Teamwork FTW!

Senator Elizabeth Warren aided the effort by using a piece of raw meat to coax the coyote into place, while Hillary’s vice president pick, Tim Kaine, stepped in to keep traffic back and President Obama got animal control on the phone.

The Onion: Biden Busted In DNC Parking Lot Selling Bootleg ‘I’m With Her’ T-Shirts

Biden Busted In DNC Parking Lot Selling Bootleg ‘I’m With Her’ T-Shirts


PHILADELPHIA—Claiming he had been “in way deeper shit plenty of times before,” Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly busted Wednesday in the Democratic National Convention parking lot for selling bootleg “I’m With Her” T-shirts. “Those cops cost me a good chunk of change when they yanked my merch, but luckily I’ve got an extra box of these babies stashed in the trunk of my Zam,” said Biden, who acknowledged the printing was a bit off-center on his knock-off shirts and that he had “completely blanked” on what Clinton’s logo looked like, but repeatedly insisted the unauthorized apparel was “pretty damn close.” “I could only snag these lousy black shirts, but I guarantee customers can’t beat my kickass prices. Look, you can get ripped off inside the arena for 35 bucks, or Uncle Joe can rip you off in the lot for way cheaper. The choice is fucking clear.” Biden, who was also selling plastic Frisbees bearing a large letter “H” scrawled in permanent black marker, confirmed that customers could also purchase a bag of mushrooms by using the code words “trip balls.”

Melania's "speechwriter" BUSTED for offering a Photoshopped pic of herself w/ Trump as "evidence"

Meredith McIver

@DanGurewitch This is offensive. Here's your proof, "Dan"

"Relax everyone, it's me, real person speechwriter Meredith McIver"

And TODAY, we have THIS which was re-Tweeted by Keith Olbermann):


Guys, the @imeredithmciver profile is fake. See photo from her acct (a photoshopped w/ Trump) versus the real one.

‘The party died in this room tonight’: Nicole Wallace grief-stricken as Trump’s RNC speech ends

"Bernie sanders is telling people to vote for Trump instead of Hillary"

That claim was made in this original post: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10028036694

I responded with the facts from Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/bernie-sanders-donald-trump-rnc_us_57918739e4b0fc06ec5c7eda

Sanders was on Twitter last light using the hash tag #RNCwithBernie, and among the remarks you will find (links provided in my response to the original DU post above) are:

"Those who voted for me will not support Trump who has made bigotry and divisiveness the cornerstone of his campaign."

"Trump: “I alone can fix this.” Is this guy running for president or dictator?"

"Our movement understands that what we don't need is Trump's huge tax breaks for millionaires."

Sanders' Twitter feed is here: https://twitter.com/BernieSanders

The "Bernie sanders is telling people to vote for Trump instead of Hillary" is a divisive group attack as well as an instance of bashing a Democratic public figure.

I've kept my promise to you. I've stayed out of the Clinton conversations and I do not promote Sanders on this Website but that comment is a lie, backed up with proof that it is a lie, and I am hoping that this kind of discourse on DU will be seen in the same light as bashing Clinton or any other Democratic figure.

Jon Stewart on Trump speech: "this angry groundhog came out and he just vomited on everybody"

Stephen Colbert sarcastically reacted to Fox News CEO Roger Ailes’ resignation before he and Jon Stewart reacted in horror to Donald Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.

The former “Daily Show” host appeared Thursday night on “The Late Show,” where he asked for his former colleague’s chair to talk about the election.

“The convention’s over, I thought Donald Trump was going to speak,” Stewart said. “Ivanka said he was going to come out, she said he was really compassionate and generous, but then this angry groundhog came out and he just vomited on everybody for an hour.”

He said the Republicans appear to have a very clear plan for America. “One, jail your political opponent,” Stewart said. “Two, inject Rudy Giuliani with a speedball enema, and then spend the rest of the time scaring the holy bejesus out of everybody.”


New Republic: Republicans Have Made a World-Historical Mistake


Republicans Have Made a World-Historical Mistake
We’re about to learn just how dangerous Donald Trump is.
By Brian Beutler
July 22, 2016

When Donald Trump took the stage in Cleveland on Thursday night and said the words that sealed the deal—“I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States”—I like to imagine Republicans in the room who endorsed him out of expedience experienced a familiar sense of dread. It’s the sense of dread Paul Manafort, Trump’s campaign chairman, must have felt when he realized Melania Trump’s keynote address was plagiarized. Or, on a more appropriate scale, the dread must have overcome pro-war Democrats last decade, when they realized that they’d tainted themselves forever with the greatest foreign policy blunder in American history.

This particular kind of dread is familiar to every elementary school child. It’s defined by the realization not just that you’ve made a huge mistake, but that you knew you were making a mistake all along, and suppressed your courage or your conscience.

Whether that dread crept up on Republicans at that moment, or at any point during Trump’s meandering, grisly, hour-long acceptance speech, it will catch up with them eventually. Whether they know it or not, this is what has happened to them.

When Trump loses the election badly, after normalizing white ethnonationalism, leaving a destroyed Republican Party in his wake; or when he wins, and proceeds to damage the country in one of the many ways he’s intimated (by abandoning allies, or defaulting on the debt, or expelling a significant percentage of the workforce), not only will repairing the damage be a long and painful process, but for his enablers there will be political hell to pay.

I have no idea who the clueless anus is on vocals, but the Clash has just been de-fanged.

Lots of convention-goers boogieing in their seats. I'm glad Joe's not alive to see this.
