I’ve been watching the news and debates for the upcoming presidential election, and although I think he’s completely ridiculous, I kind of want to vote for Donald Trump just for entertainment value. Is that bad?
Donald Trump isn’t exactly a conventional "politician." So it probably shouldn’t be too surprising that the business mogul/reality TV star decided it would be a good idea to give out fellow presidential candidate Lindsey Graham’s actual cell phone number on live TV. Needless to say, it is now time for Sen. Graham find a new phone. As this video shows, he’s at least found some fun ways to dispose of his old one. Discuss
Late-term abortions are now illegal in Wisconsin. State governor Scott Walker signed a bill yesterday that bans all non-emergency abortions after 20 weeks, the stage when some experts say fetuses begin to feel pain. Rape and incest are exceptions to the new law. This legislation makes performing a late-term abortion a felony, carrying a punishment of up to three and a half years in prison and up to $10,000, reports Politico. Still allowable after 20 weeks are emergency abortions in situations where the mother may die or incur severe injuries. Wisconsin lawmakers approved this action earlier this month. Discuss
Today in Cairo, Egypt, at least five people died in a clash between Egyptian security forces and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Associated Press reports that this fight represents the deadliest violence at Islamist protests in a while. More than 500 Brotherhood supporters marched in the Cairo’s Giza neighborhood following the end of Ramadan and the start of Eid al-Fitr, a major Muslim holiday. Fights erupted between marchers and local residents and police, escalating quickly to deadly gunfire. Discuss
Presidential candidate Marco Rubio is selling polo shirts on his campaign website—and he’s calling them “Marco Polos.” Get it? Because nothing says “vote for me to be the future leader of your country” like a good, punny dad joke. The polos are $45 and feature the name “Marco” below an outline of the U.S. Obviously, they come in your choice of red, white or blue. Discuss
