Author Brad Thor outs Donald Trump as ‘strongman in waiting’

The New York Daily News might have written him off as an evil clown with an army of mindless zombies, but Brad Thor, prolific best-selling author of political thrillers, has been observing GOP candidate Donald Trump on the stump and thinks he has the character of “strongman in waiting” down.

The conversation arose from a post on Hot Air, where Thor outed Trump as a CINO (conservative in name only).

No, he can change! At least that’s what he told Bret Baier yesterday.

Teen Going Viral For Her ‘Grab My Pussy, I Dare You’ Shirt At Trump Rally

An 18-year-old named Anna Lehane is clearly tired of Donald Trumps misogynistic nonsense and wore a homemade shirt that said, Grab my pussy, I dare you, to a rally for the Republican presidential nominee in Pennsylvania on Monday.

The shirt is clearly in referenceto a video that recently surfaced in which Trump bragged about sexual assault and told Billy Bush being a star means he can walk up to women and grab them by the pussy.

Lehane, who is a high school senior, is not OK with this demeaning and predatory rhetoric.

Speaking with The Huffington Post, Lehane described what inspired her to wear the shirt,

I made the shirt as a protest to people in the public spotlight on such a global platform making such disrespectful, degrading and misogynistic comments and still being taken seriously.

Whileshe wore the shirt to make an important and valid point, not everyone received itpositively.

She said,

Many people took pictures of my shirt without permission and there were some degrading comments made mostly by older white men it seemed.

Lehane seems to be unfazed by the backlash, however, and said she ultimately plans to sell the shirts.

This young womans anti-Trump position is fairly emblematic of the Republican presidential nominees overwhelming lack of support among younger voters.

Correspondingly, Lehanes shirt was also adorned with a pin of Senator Bernie Sanders, who saw massivelevel of support from young voters during the primary season.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is also struggling to win over young voters, but Anna Lehane is not one of them.

In spite of wearing a Bernie Sanders pin, Lehane told Elle she plans on voting for Clinton. She said,

Hillary Clinton wasnt my first choice, but she stands for women and I stand for women.

And Bernie Sanders supports Hillary now Im not just basing my opinions on him, but I think Hillary is definitely the better choice for the president of the United States.

With that said, Lehane said she doesnt want people to talk about her, but rather the broader message behind the shirt,

I hope people will take away that the opinion of every person matters. It doesnt matter your race, gender, or age, whatever.

You need to value yourself and what youre trying to say and you cant let anybody, no matter how powerful they may seem, quiet you.

Wow. This teen is as eloquent as she is brave.

With young people like her around,its a lot easier to feel confident about the future of the country.

This time ‘The View’ hosts critique Carly Fiorina’s face

For better or worse, presidential candidate Donald Trump says what he thinks, such as when he told a Rolling Stone interviewer his thoughts about Carly Fiorina’s chances: “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that? The face of our next president?” Trump’s not quick to apologize, but he did apply a bit of spin to his own comment, saying he was referring to Fiorina’s persona and not her looks.

Trump’s final word on the topic? During the second GOP debate, he declared, “I think she has a very beautiful face, and shes a beautiful woman.” A nice compliment, but still sexist.

After last night’s third GOP debate, the hosts of ABC’s “The View” decided for some reason it was time to revive the subject: not the subject of sexism, but of Fiorina’s looks.

No, the women of “The View” can’t do better, and there’s no indication they’ve tried. The last time they caught our attention was when Joy Behar ridiculed a Miss America contestant who is also a nurse for wearing “a doctors stethoscope” on stage.

That comment cost the show several major sponsors; let’s see if the trend continues.

Yep, ‘Make America White Again’ Is This Guy’s Actual Campaign For Congress

An independent candidate for Congress named Rick Tyler just posted what is one of the most absurd and offensive signs you will ever see.

According toABC News, the sign, posted near a highway in Tennessee, borrows from Donald Trump’scampaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” but addsan abhorrent alteration. It says, “Make America White Again.”

Tyler told WRCB-TV he doesn’t hate people of color, he simply wishes America to return to a time when “there were no break-ins; no violent crime; no mass immigration.”

He also reportedly posted a sign with an image depicting the White House surrounded by Confederate flags.

To say this man has a distorted perception of American history would be a tremendous understatement.

He seems to have forgotten Native Americans exist, and America has never been a homogenous or “white” country. Slavery began in the land that would become the United Statesas early as 1619when 20 African captives were sold into slavery at the British colony of Jamestown in Virginia.

Tyler also seems to ignore the fact the US is a nation of immigrants who have come from all over the world from its earliest days.

Additionally, his statement appears to imply immigrants in the present day are responsible for crime and violence throughout the US. The truth, however, is that native-born Americans are more likely to commit violent crimes and be incarcerated than immigrants.

Sorry I’m not sorry, Mr. Tyler, but your version of America never existed, and if we all stay true to our values, it never will.

After news surrounding the sign Tyler posted broke, “Make America White Again” began trending on Twitter. A lot of people were not too happy with Tyler’s vision for this country and his erroneous views of US history.

Indeed, instead of “Make America White Again,” why don’t we all continue to fight to make America the land where all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or religion, are truly treated as equals for the first time in our nation’s history?

‘Humans Of New York’ Creator Attacks Donald Trump In Powerful Open Letter

Creator of the immensely popular Facebook page (and book, and website) ‘Humans of New York’, Brandon Stanton has made a living interviewing ordinary people.

Photographing the “humans” of New York first, but also 20 other countries, hisinnumerable stories have become somewhat of a cultural phenomenon. He has over 17 million followers on Facebook, and his posts regularly get over one hundred thousand likes.

Now, Brandon has used his vast influence to speak out on an issue that he feels must be addressed. In an impassioned open letter, he slams Donald Trump, describing his decision to do so as “a moral one”.

“Mr. Trump,

I try my hardest not to be political. Ive refused to interview several of your fellow candidates. I didnt want to risk any personal goodwill by appearing to take sides in a contentious election. I thought: Maybe the timing is not right. But I realize now that there is no correct time to oppose violence and prejudice. The time is always now. Because along with millions of Americans, Ive come to realize that opposing you is no longer a political decision. It is a moral one.

Ive watched you retweet racist images. Ive watched you retweet racist lies. Ive watched you take 48 hours to disavow white supremacy. Ive watched you joyfully encourage violence, and promise to pay the legal fees of those who commit violence on your behalf. Ive watched you advocate the use of torture and the murder of terrorists families. Ive watched you gleefully tell stories of executing Muslims with bullets dipped in pig blood. Ive watched you compare refugees to snakes, and claim that Islam hates us.

I am a journalist, Mr. Trump. And over the last two years I have conducted extensive interviews with hundreds of Muslims, chosen at random, on the streets of Iran, Iraq, and Pakistan. Ive also interviewed hundreds of Syrian and Iraqi refugees across seven different countries. And I can confirm the hateful one is you.

Those of us who have been paying attention will not allow you to rebrand yourself. You are not a unifier. You are not presidential. You are not a victim of the very anger that youve joyfully enflamed for months. You are a man who has encouraged prejudice and violence in the pursuit of personal power. And though your words will no doubt change over the next few months, you will always remain who you are.

Sincerely,
Brandon Stanton”

While Donald hasn’t yet responded to this open letter, it has 1.7 million likes on Facebook, and has been shared almost 900,000 times.

Given Trump’stendency to hit out at anyone who dares criticise him, we’d imagine that Brandon has an angry retort to be looking forward to…

Jared Kushner, son-in-law and senior adviser to President Donald Trump, has undergoneplenty ofscrutiny especially onFriday night.

According to reports from The Washington Post on May 26, Kushner allegedly spokewith Russias ambassador to the United States, Sergey I. Kislyak, in December.

Theiralleged meeting was to supposedly establish a secret communications channel between Trumpstransition team and Moscow in an effort to discuss policy issues, particularly in regards to Syria.

The Times and The Post further claimed that President Trumps short-lived national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was also in attendance, andit is not clear who initiated the meeting. The channel was never set up, according to The Times.

Naturally, this opened up the floodgate for Americans, particularly those with an active voice on social media.

We heard from politicians like Rep. Maxine Waters.

She didnt seem all that surprised with the reports.

Twitter


Aspiring politics chimed in as well.

Levin is running for Congress vs. Darrell Issa in California.

Twitter


People tried to provide comedic relief


while others showed no mercy.


Reporters added their own commentary.


Even celebrities took a jab at Kushner.

Anna Kendrick received over 9,000 retweets and 73,000 likes for her Kushner meme.

According to CBS News, White House officials are allegedlyrefusing to comment on the reports that surfaced from The Washington Post last night.

In the meantime, President Trump has announced that he will delay hisdecision to next week on whether the US will withdraw from the Paris climate accords which he announced on Twitter (where else?).

As of 3:10 pm EST, Trump has not released any statements on Twitter regarding his son-in-law.

Elite Daily has reached out to Kushners attorney Jamie Gorelick for comment.
