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.
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.”
We’re all currently living in a horrible parody movie written by the Wayans brothers. It’s the only plausible explanation for the road to the 2016 election, which will take place this coming November unless the Earth opens up before then and swallows us all.
Monday night’s kickoff of the Republican National Convention was a spectacle that didn’t just meet our expectations, it exceeded them. Wildly. Every twist and turn on Trump’s campaign trail led up to this, so it was only right that the RNC had its fair share of drama. And as it turned out, not even the Wayans brothers could have dreamt up the ridiculousness that unfolded in Cleveland, OH last night. More →
During a recent appearance on NBC’s morning show Today, award-winning actor Bryan Cranston revealed that he not only has world-class acting chops but that he’s also quite adept at impressions. After a few minutes spent discussing his upcoming movie The Infiltrator with Carson Daly, Daly asked the former Breaking Bad star what type of role or historical figure he’d like to play next. And interestingly enough, Cranston said he’d like to play Donald Trump.
On Monday, Twitter and CBS News announced via a press release that they would be partnering in order to stream live coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions on Twitter later this month.
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 →
Donald Trump’s campaign has been nothing if not controversial. The republican presidential hopeful knows exactly how to push everyone’s buttons. Among his supporters he can do no wrong and among his critics he can do no right. But whichever side of the fence on which you stand, you have to appreciate the fact that Trump has an uncanny ability to steal the spotlight and evoke strong responses from his supporters and from the opposition.
This past weekend, things came to a head when a 19-year-old British man made an attempt on Trump’s life. More →
Jimmy Fallon took the reins on The Tonight Show over two years ago, but every once in a while, Jay Leno will drop by to help out with the monologue.
With the election cycle in full swing, it’s honestly not that hard to believe that Fallon could use an occasional assist. After all, there are only so many Donald Trump jokes you can make before you run out of breath.
We can guarantee with absolute certainty that regardless of who becomes next president in January, this viral Japanese Trump commercial below will be the best thing to come of the 2016 presidential election. As ridiculous as reality has been during this year’s campaign, film director, visual effects artist and all-around amazing human Mike Diva has managed to take things to an entirely new level.
Hope you’re sitting down… More →
Although The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind was Nintendo’s focus at E3 2016 this year, it wasn’t the only game featured on the company’s two-day live stream. Rather, Nintendo kicked things off with an in-depth look at Pokemon Sun and Moon, the two newest entries in the popular portable franchise.
Yesterday, news leaked that the Democratic National Committee’s opposition research file on Trump had been hacked by Russian state-sponsored hackers. Today, what appears to be that same file — 200+ pages on how to take down Trump — has been leaked to news outlets by a self-proclaimed hacker.
Both Gawker.com and The Smoking Gun have published the same file today. They say they were sent it by a hacker calling himself “Guccifer 2.0,” a reference to the infamous Romanian hacker who penetrated the networks of senior politicians (including Hillary Clinton) in 2013, and is now in the custody of the FBI.
According to Gawker, his motive is to be “a fighter against all those illuminati that captured our world.”
