This isn’t the first time we had to listen to Donald Trump talk about “the cyber.” But you’d think he might have learned exactly what the word means or how to use it in a sentence before his first presidential debate against Hillary Clinton. After all, cyber is huge. Cyber is bound to come up. But no, Trump still can’t cyber correctly.
Did you watch last night’s Presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton? Of course you did, Because, if we’re being honest, everyone did. In the days and hours preceding the event, many even speculated that the debate was going to pull in Super Bowl type viewership numbers.
Hardly a surprise, this year’s Presidential election has been nothing short of a circus the likes of which the American public has never seen before. In turn, all eyes were laser focused on Trump and Clinton as the first Presidential debate kicked off at Hofstra University last night. Suffice it to say, the debate — at least from an entertainment perspective — lived up to the hype.
After months of watching Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton take shots at one another from afar, we’re finally going to see what they have to say to one another face to face on Monday night at the first presidential debate. This promises to be one of the most widely watched debates in American history, and unless you want to miss out on all the conversations that your family, friends and colleagues are going to be having over the next few weeks, you’re going to want to tune in.
Thankfully, whether you have a cable subscription or not, there are plenty of ways to watch the 90-minute debate tonight at 9PM ET.
Donald Trump loves boasting about how wealthy he is, yet the Presidential candidate steadfastly refuses to release his tax returns. Over the past few months, the reasons why Trump has declined to make his tax returns public have been all over the map. Sometimes he’ll bring up something involving an audit and other times he’ll simply say he doesn’t have or want to.
Looking to have a little bit of fun with Trump’s waffling, the folks over at Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday took to the streets and told any Trump supporter they could find that Trump had, at long last, released his tax returns. They then “asked them specific questions about these totally fictional tax returns in another edition of #LieWitnessNews.”
Earlier this week, Donald Trump Jr. shared an image on Twitter equating the Syrian refugee crisis with a bowl of Skittles. According to the image, “our Syrian refugee problem” is like being handed a bowl of Skittles and being told that only three of them would kill you. “Would you take a handful?” it boldly asks.
Like many of us, Stephen Colbert was both horrified and intrigued.
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.
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
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.
Unidentified Russian hackers targeted the Democrats ahead of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) last month, exposing the pro-Hillary Clinton bias inside the party during the primaries. An investigation by the FBI has revealed that the scope of the attack may be a lot bigger than initially expected. More →
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.

Brace yourself, internet-dwellers: Donald Trump is coming to town. According to a press release emailed to journalists and a post on the controversial /r/The_Donald subreddit, everyone’s favorite Republican candidate will be conducting an AMA this Wednesday at 7:00PM ET.
Trump’s AMA isn’t unusual, since prominent entertainers do frequently visit the platform to plug their latest movie or concert tour. Even President Obama has stopped by once or twice. But there’s a few details that may make this AMA one to remember.
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.”
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.
