As the world waits for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to announce her running mate, Jezebel has been thinking, hard. And we have a great idea.
CLEVELAND— That Donald Trump is unpopular among women is well-known. The statistic citing seven out of ten women who have an unfavorable opinion of the Republican nominee and his penchant for sexism have been central features of both conservative anti-Trump campaigns and the Clinton campaign. But at the Republican…
CLEVELAND — Two southern delegates discussed Ted Cruz’s speech last night in the slow-moving cattle drive toward the security perimeter exit outside Quicken Loans Arena last night.
At the start of the Republican National Convention—the ceremony in which Republican leadership will officially declare Donald Trump, the contents of a dumpster behind a Roll N Roaster, as their nominee—men are beginning to feeling introspective about their complicity in Trump’s rise.
Earlier today, Donald Trump announced on Twitter that Mike Pence, Governor of Indiana, had been chosen as his vice presidential candidate. Pence, 57, is a deeply traditional choice, he’s a standard old-school Republican who hews more closely to the GOP’s ideology than Trump. Pence is religious and speaks often of his…
At a rally in Annandale, Virgina, Hillary Clinton delivered an uncomfortable joke about Pokemon and voting that your mom is sure to love. “I don’t know who created Pokemon Go,” Clinton said, “but I’m trying to figure out how we get them to Pokemon Go to the polls!” The crowd, ostensibly filled with women just like my…
Listen, I have held my tongue when that decaying, hollowed-out tree trunk that is now housing a family of malnourished, furious possums Donald Trump has dragged other respectable Americans through the mud (actually, no I haven’t really), but he has gone too far. Too fucking far.
On Friday afternoon, Newt Gingrich, your mother’s oddly hard stuffed Santa doll that sits on your mantel and quietly spreads holiday malice, said something not crazy, about how black Americans have it harder than white Americans can ever comprehend. And I think he probably liked how that felt.
At Jezebel, we’ve made it our mission to transform the brutalizing slog of election reporting into a creative exercise—namely, we’ve sought to find the words to describe Donald Trump’s utter terribleness. It’s a job we take seriously and one that will likely never be complete until we’re all dead under a pile of his…
Can you remember all the way back to March, when Bernie Sanders—at the time, a doofy Vermont senator who had overcome all odds by running a major campaign based on free love and free kush—was speaking at a rally in Portland, Oregon, when all of a sudden a tiny bird landed on his lectern? Have you ever been more filled…
On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton announced an expansion of her college plan that would offer free college tuition at public schools for families making up to $85,000 per year, with that number eventually increasing (by $10,000 per year) to $125,000 by 2021.
Today, the Trump campaign announced the hire of Kellyanne Conway, a Republican pollster who touts herself as an expert on the “gender gap.” In a statement, the campaign said that Conway will serve as senior advisor to campaign chair, Paul Manafort. The campaign noted that Conway is “widely regarded as an expert on…
“It’s lonely over here in the pro-life camp,” Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, writes in an op-ed in today’s Washington Post. Indeed, Hawkins is very, very lonely, just hoping and waiting by her phone for Donald Trump to just give her a call and maybe ask her to dinner, she writes.
During a Tuesday evening speech in St. Clairsville, Ohio, unwashed fumigation tent Donald Trump used evocative language to describe what the Trans-Pacific Partnership was literally doing to America.
Say hello to your 2016 champion of the World’s Ugliest Dog contest, SweePee Rambo. SweePee Rambo is a 17-year-old crested chihuahua, who wears diapers and has an oozing sore. She seems pretty over it all.
Donald Trump, one of those piles of sand by a highway, has promised us so much and has delivered so little. He’s promised us that the Trump name is synonymous with success; that’s a hard no. He’s promised us he cherishes women, perhaps only as collectibles. He’s promised us his fingers are long, but we’ve seen them.
After Elizabeth Warren appeared at a rally with Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump rounded up his best and brightest supporters. From that group of luminaries, he plucked former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown to revive old attacks about Warren’s debunked claims of Native American ancestry.
In an interview that aired Wednesday on C-SPAN, Sen. Bernie Sanders admitted, perhaps to himself, that his campaign was nearing its end.
On Tuesday, the Associated Press reported that Hillary Clinton’s campaign had entered a “more intense” phase of picking out her running mate.
