Any president, not just future President Donald Trump can send you text messages that you would not be able to block. No president did it in the past for personal reasons. The question is, will Trump do it once he takes office? More →
A week ago, Jill Stein kicked off a vote recount campaign that went viral online. The Green Party wants recounts in three swing states, which could theoretically give Hillary Clinton the presidency — but only if the recount shows that Clinton should have won in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
Since then, Stein’s campaign has continued to raise the ceiling on that crowd-funding target. It started at $2.5 million, then went to $4.5 million, and up until a few hours ago it had a $7 million goal. But guess what? That goal is now $9.5 million. It turns out that vote recounts are expensive endeavors.
President-elect Donald Trump decided it’s best to respond directly to The Green Party’s campaign to recount votes in three swing states. Jill Stein’s camp is almost on the verge of reaching that final $7 million target — a goal that continued to shift upwards since Wednesday — and an official Wisconsin recount has already been confirmed. The Hillary Clinton campaign said it would help out with the recount process.
What did Trump do? He launched a Twitter-based tirade against the entire thing culminating with what might be the biggest lie Trump delivered to date. More →
The problem of fake news and the US election has been reported to death by this point. We’ve blamed Facebook, Google, the fake news writers, and the world’s racist Facebook-sharing uncles by this point.
But one group that hasn’t been blamed yet is the Russians, and it’s about time that we did something about that. The Washington Post has seen a report that claims Russian propaganda websites were responsible for reaching 15 million Americans with fake news stories in the run-up to the election, and in a close race, that could feasibly have changed the outcome of the election.
The Green Party’s presidential candidate Jill Stein wants to recount votes in three swing states and wants your money to do it. A Kickstarter-like campaign was listed on Stein’s page on Wednesday, and it has gone viral almost immediately. In just over a day, Stein raised the initial $2.5 million goal, but the campaign soon changed the target to $4.5 million, which was soon reached. As expected, there’s now a new aim for the vote recount effort, as Stein’s party says $7 million is needed to get the votes recounted in all three states, including Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

President-elect Donald Trump and his team are currently busy working on their transition. In fact, they even created a special YouTube channel called Transition 2017 where Trump can issue addresses to the nation whenever he feels like it. After all, thanks to YouTube, you can instantly reach a massive audience while simultaneously skirting the media and its inopportune questions. After updating the country on the transition progress the other day on YouTube, Trump is back with a Thanksgiving address.
Green Party candidate Jill Stein has absolutely no chance of becoming the next US President. That position is already filled by President-elect Donald Trump who did what many thought impossible on November 8th. That said, Stein’s side still wants a recount in three swing states, including Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
The crazy part is that she already got the initial $2.5 million in funding she wanted in just over a day of online crowdfunding. The crazier part is that she raised the goal of that campaign to $7 million. The absolutely craziest part about the whole thing is that these three states might be enough to give Clinton the win.
The campaign, similar to a Kickstarter crowd-funding project, apparently went viral.
After some back and forth with The New York Times, President-elect Donald Trump went ahead with the planned interview, sharing his vision of what lies ahead. The interview follows Trump’s address to the nation from earlier this week, when the future President chose to update the American people on his transition progress and his 100-day plan via YouTube, rather than a regular press conference.
The full transcript of Trump’s interview with the Times is now available online. More →
President-elect Donald Trump said in an interview that Apple CEO Tim Cook called him. Microsoft’s Bill Gates also had a “great conversation” over the phone with the President-elect. More →
Donald Trump was elected president of the United States on November 8th, a surprising victory that had an unwanted, if not unforseen, side effect: the number of hate crimes — including violence and harassment — escalated in the days that followed the election. More →
Press conferences are so boring, particularly because the press (you know, the ones working against you) will look to sabotage you by asking all sorts of questions. If you’re President-elect Trump, then there’s a way to avoid holding a press event where you’d be peppered with questions about your transition and your 100-day plan. You post a YouTube address, where you can tackle all these topics without any nasty interruptions. But hey, at least Trump did refer to cyber attacks in a way that makes him look like he knows what he’s talking about. More →
President-elect Donald Trump has his hands full at the moment. Not only does he have to find suitable people for his future administration, save Ford jobs, and settle lawsuits, but he also has to keep an eye out on anyone looking to harass his staff, Vice President-elect Mike Pence included.
You see, Pence attended the highly acclaimed Hamilton musical on Broadway on Friday evening. And that’s where the cast of the show decided to ambush the VP-elect with a message about diversity and inclusion. That’s something Trump could not let slide.
Apparently it’s not just tech CEOs that think they can tweet assassination threats and get away with it. A 24-year-old man from Ohio was arrested and faces possible jail time after posting that he’d like to see Donald Trump dead, along with a vague plot to blow up the entire United States.
Zachary Benson says he was watching the election results on television when he “went too far” and posted a pair of inflammatory threats on Twitter. More →
