Republican controlled state governments keep blocking people from voting even after courts ordered them to stop.

Indiana police interfere with voter registration efforts by request of Republican politicians.  Seriously.  This happened.

F*** Wisconsin.  Seriously.  F*** it.

Issue 1 is key here

Trump brags about how he can get away with sexually assaulting women because he is rich and famous (audio from 2005).

Btw, did you know that Trump has been accused in court of sexual assault at least 3x?  The make-up artist’s story sounds eerily similar to his 2005 bragging.  (The other two were rape accusations from Ivana Trump and the current court case about child rape.)

Trump said the Central Park Five, who were falsely accused of a rape they didn’t commit, who he took out ad space against at the time, who were exonerated by DNA evidence, he said they were guilty.  On Friday.  This past Friday.  He said innocent black men were guilty of a crime they had been proven not to have committed.

Trump says soldiers with PTSD have it because they are weak (this is not true).

Trump says he would use his power of the presidency to punish nations like China if they denied things to his businesses.

How Trump got a middle-class tax break.

How Trump “lost” 916 million and avoided tax.  (An earlier post on the same topic.)

Trump’s bankruptcy lawyers say they had to meet with him in pairs to have a witness because he lied so much.

Michelle Obama is really good at throwing shade *tap tap tap*

Josh Marshall on the increase in antisemitism he’s been on the receiving end of since Trump’s campaign started.

A Donald Trump supporter sent a triggering video to a reporter with epilepsy in order to induce a seizure.

Secret service had to help escort the mother of a disabled child out of a Trump rally because Trump supporters were threatening her.

Now the Germans are using Trump videos to parody Hitler.”  (Make your own Hitler video…)

Clinton reminds them of their first wives

Clinton should “leak” her policy discussions from fundraisers.  Maybe the press will notice them if she does.

    Your Clinton haircut link is the beige house story from two lines up.

    Four more weeks of Trump leaks and watching the GOP lose its mind. It’d be hilarious if the election weren’t so terrifyingly close.

      40% of likely voters are bigots. That is depressing.

      • Rosa Says:

        ONLY 40%, which is way better than I would have expected. I mean, not all of them are bigoted in the exact same way. I would expect when you added the racists, the misogynists, the anti-immigrant people, the anti-Muslim people, and the plain “we love rich celebrities” people you’d get up past 40% even assuming a lot of overlap between them.

        That’s something, I guess? Hopefully getting smaller every year.

    I love Wendy Cope! I have three of her poetry books, I think (I might have “loaned” one or two to friends, and not gotten the books back, but I know I had three at one point). She’s a modern, British Dorothy Parker (another awesome poet whom I love).

    I enjoyed your beigification link and your “outstanding” link on how to indirectly measure zombification.

    Interesting that people feel sports bras have to look good (patriarchy?)–I wish that article would have told us more about the results they found. They did mention that the uniboob design is sometimes the best style.

    Ha! Machine learning vs stats is amusing and was made even more so by my sleep-deprived misread of: “Machine learning vs cats.”
