Facebook knows if you’re a Trump or Clinton supporter, and you can see which

One of the reasons why Facebook is so beloved by advertisers is because the social networking giant has access to all sorts of granular data about your background and interests. All the more interesting is that Facebook even has a good idea as to your political leanings, even if you rarely, if ever, “like” or express an interest in a particular candidate or political cause.

Interestingly enough, there’s an extremely simple way to see what side of the political spectrum Facebook thinks you fall on. It all goes back to advertising dollars, after all, so you better believe that Facebook has a good inclination as to whether or not you’re on the Trump bandwagon or if your heart still beats proudly for Bernie Sanders.

Even if you think you’ve done a good job when it comes to keeping your political views hidden from public view, it’s hard to escape the all-knowing Facebook algorithm.

Donald Trump explaining movie plots on Twitter is the funniest thing we’ve seen all week

Donald Trump explaining movie plots on Twitter is the funniest thing we’ve seen all week

As anyone who has followed Donald Trump’s unprecedented and unlikely run for the Oval Office, the man who popularized the phrase “You’re Fired!” certainly has a way with words. Now no one would ever mistake Trump for a wordsmith, but when it comes to insulting people or summarizing complex topics into vague and curiously aggressive soundbites, there’s uniquely Trump vernacular that we’ve never before seen in a Presidential race.

With this as a jumping off point, the hashtag “#TrumpExplainsMoviePlots” emerged out of nowhere this week and quickly became a trending topic on Twitter. Suffice it to say, the tweets that the hashtag created are nothing short of comedic gold. To help save you some time, and to provide a few hearty laughs on a lazy Friday, we’ve combed through some of the most outrageously clever and hilarious tweets that perfectly capture what Donald Trump would sound like if forced to review movies on Twitter.

Donald Trump’s angriest tweets are sent from his Android while the nice ones are sent from an iPhone

Donald Trump’s angriest tweets are sent from his Android while the nice ones are sent from an iPhone

Over the weekend, Hollywood visual effects director Todd Vaziri (you’ve undoubtedly seen his work in films like Avatar, The Avengers and Star Wars: The Force Awakens) made a casual and rather interesting observation about Donald Trump’s tweeting habits.

After looking at two months worth of Trump tweets, Vaziri noticed that most of Trumps more abrasive and hyperbolic tweets were sent from Android devices. On the flip side, Trumps more benign postings tended to come exclusively from iPhone devices.

Trump Russia Hack

Trump finally said something so stupid and illegal, he had to pretend he was joking

Trump finally said something so stupid and illegal, he had to pretend he was joking

It seemed as though this day would never come, but it has: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said something so remarkably stupid that he actually had to pretend he wasn’t being serious at the time.

The run up to the 2016 presidential election in November will go down as one of the most bizarre and, quite frankly, sad times in the recent history of American politics. No matter who wins come November, we all lose. Of course, there’s losing and then there’s losing. And speaking of losing, an interesting series of events unfolded this week that forced Trump to finally walk back one of his ridiculous comments — something we really never thought we would see.

Donald Trump Pokemon Go Interview

I replaced the word ‘cyber’ with ‘Pokemon Go’ in this ridiculous Trump interview

I replaced the word ‘cyber’ with ‘Pokemon Go’ in this ridiculous Trump interview

In an interview with The New York Times this week, Donald Trump made it very clear that he’s not 100% sure what the word cyber means or how to use it in a sentence. It was the most laughable moment in an interview full of them, so I decided to notch up the ridiculousness a few degrees by replacing every mention of the word “cyber” with some form of the word “Pokémon.”

How to watch Donald Trump’s speech at the RNC

Tonight, it’s the speech we’ve all been waiting for. The hairpiece mannequin who also happens to be the Republican candidate for president is formally accepting the nomination tonight, which promises to make for fantastic television.

Luckily for us, it’s easy to watch along. The convention is being livestreamed on Twitter, and there’s also an official RNC YouTube channel that you can pull up on your mobile device, laptop computer, smart TV, dumb TV, Roku box, Chromecast, or basically anything that receives The Internet.

In other words, the Donald will be impossible to escape.

Donald Trump’s opinion on cyberwarfare is pretty scary

As the future President of these United States, Donald Trump will have to deal with the delicate issue of cyberattacks. So good thing he’s got a coherent handle on this tricky and nuanced topic, right?

Nah, just kidding. He sounds more like your drunk uncle at Thanksgiving blaming everything on “the cybers.”

Trump Garbage Wall Speech

The internet completely lost it over Trump’s ‘garbage wall’ speech last night

The internet completely lost it over Trump’s ‘garbage wall’ speech last night

Trump is easily the most polarizing presidential candidate the country has seen in years. Decades, even. Perhaps ever. People either love him to the point that each new inaccuracy fact-checked by the media only makes their allegiance more staunch, or they hate him to the point where they can’t even recognize that much of his schtick is well calculated.

But regardless of which camp you fall in, you have to appreciate the internet’s collective response to Trump’s speech on Tuesday night, which was delivered in front of a giant wall of garbage. More →
