If you're sick and tired of this broken two-party system, singer-songwriter Andrew W.K. is asking for your support to establish a new political party. Not one established on the dogma and rhetoric of the Republican or Democratic party, but one that transcends both: The Party Party. It's time to restore our faith in the political process and bring people together. And what brings people together better than partying hard? That's right, nothing. And for those of you who chock this up to April foolery, you're the only April fool around here, because Andrew W.K. is claiming that this is absolutely real:
At best, bi-partisan politics has created an insurmountable divide that has separated the people into two categories of Democrat and Republican. The Party Party aims to provide an alternative to the divisive labeling of our current system. Most people have become too caught up in the bickering of our news cycles to realize that we ultimately desire the exact same things: reliable access to education, healthcare, and a sense of social equality. If enough people are willing to liberate themselves from choosing left or right, a third voice can emerge with a much more powerful message. A message that will open the eyes of our representatives and help them see that this “Us versus Them” mentality has kept our country from providing its people with a REAL sense of freedom. If we open our hearts and approach the problems we face with an open mind, real change can be achieved. We hope you will join us on this journey.
These are real-world solutions for real-world issues. Discuss
In a tweet that sounded more like it came from a mobster than a U.S. presidential candidate, Donald Trump threatened to “spill the beans” on Ted Cruz's wife.
After quickly deleting the tweet, Trump reposted a revised version Tuesday night. Lyin’ Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin’ Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!” the GOP frontrunner wrote, revealing that he removed the tweet not because he thought better of it, but because he wanted to add "Lyin' Ted Cruz." Trump was seemingly referring to the Facebook ads by anti-Trump super PAC targeting Melania Trump's nude appearance in a GQ spread from years ago. Senator Cruz quickly responded: “Pic of your wife not from us. Donald, if you try to attack Heidi, you’re more of a coward than I thought. #classless”
A handful of protesters were reportedly shoved out of a Trump rally after showing up to protest. During a Donald Trump rally in Louisville, Kentucky, protestors interrupted Trump's 30-minute speech. Local news captured video of the Republican frontrunner saying "go get 'em" in reference to the protestors. The local Courier Journal said,
Trump was interrupted more than half a dozen times by protesters raising signs and shouting.
“Get ‘em the hell out of here. Get out. Get out,” Trump yelled into the microphone as his security team and police officers led people away and the crowd cheered loudly.
“Out. Out. Out.”
The video then shows a crowd of white people shoving around a few black protesters, including a black woman who says she was verbally accosted by Trump supporters yelling racial and gender obscenities. The local news station, WLKY, spoke with the woman on the phone Tuesday night. They did not disclose her name, but they say she is doing well and she is just trying to process everything.
