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 →
Any conversation about the alt-right and the internet always seems to spiral back to Reddit and /r/the_donald, a the unofficial water cooler for Trump supporters during the election and after it.
Users and mods of /r/the_donald have tread a fine line between enthusiastic support for a political candidate and online abuse, which has caused all sorts of problems within Reddit. Following some serious internal drama that you probably don’t care about, Reddit is now “taking a more proactive approach to policing behavior that is detrimental to Reddit:” removing stickied /r/the_donald posts from Reddit’s main page.
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 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.

Donald Trump is the President-elect of the United States, but he’s still a crafty businessman, so it should come as no surprise that the billionaire has a plan to capitalize on your holiday cheer in the form of licensed ornaments.
One ornament in particular — modeled after the now iconic, ill-fitting red cap that became a symbol of the Trump movement — has accumulated over 1,200 reviews on Amazon, and they’re some of the best pieces of writing you’re going to find anywhere online. More →
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 →
Snapchat has made a name for itself as the go-to app for sharing things that you might not want the whole world to see. That way of thinking backfired on a group of University of Kansas cheerleaders after a Snapchat post that seems to show support for both the KKK and President-elect Donald Trump caught the attention of school officials.
The photo, which seems to have been shot at a dumpy college party based on the solo cups and stolen street sign wall decor, shows three male members of the University of Kansas cheer squad, each with a bold “K” on his chest, along with the words “Kkk go trump.” 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 →
