Donald Trump, a snot-flavored Jelly Bean gaining a frightening amount of power and influence, has had a curious reaction to the ghastly terror attack in Nice, France. One the one hand, he postponed announcing his vice presidential pick; on the other, he went ahead with a giant fundraiser in Bel-Air. Who knows? Acting…
The presidential election isn’t the only nightmare awaiting us in November. Welcome to Congressional Cacophony, a new feature on The Slot about House and Senate races that really, really matter. Suggestions? Pitches? Email us.
Over the weekend, gold-tipped mucus plug Donald Trump tweeted a meme of Hillary Clinton that originally appeared on a racist, anti-Semitic message board. This is, to our knowledge, the first offensive tweet Trump has deleted and that his campaign has semi-apologized for. It’s a bold new strategy, acknowledging a…
The Supreme Court issued a split decision today on whether an immigration plan created by President Obama through an executive order was constitutional. In English: the Supreme Court deadlocked 4-4 and the plan, which would have prevented millions of people from facing deportation, has been blocked. That means next…
On November 8th, it will be time to decide a new President of the United States. If you’re not registered to vote, now’s the time to make sure you’re ready when it comes time to visit the polls. Here’s all the information you need to get it done.
Donald Trump, a dangerous and stupid bigot who I do not have the heart to give a silly nickname to right now, renewed his call Monday to ban Muslims from immigrating to the United States. He also said as president he would ban immigration from countries with “a history of terrorism.” So, all of them. All the countries.
Hillary Clinton made history last night, clinching the Democratic party nomination (even if Bernie Sanders hasn’t quite yet found time to concede defeat). This is an interesting moment for a lot of young activists and progressives, particularly people of color, who are like... I guess?
Sputum-filled Orange Julius Donald Trump appeared on Fox News Monday night, to carry out one of his blitzkrieg attacks on both American ideals and the English language. He also found time to mention that he, personally, is responsible for women’s success in the construction industry. Who else, right?
Bernie Sanders and a New York Times reporter engaged in a frosty back-and-forth Monday, after she asked him whether it’s “sexist” of him not to concede to Hillary Clinton at this point in the race.
The California Democratic primary is on June 7. If Bernie Sanders loses, he’ll trail Hillary Clinton by such a huge margin in both pledged and superdelegates that there will be virtually no way to make it up. But as Bernie made clear over the weekend, no, he is not going, pushing instead for probably the wildest…
Donald Trump, a bewildered, golden-helmeted astronaut who’s just landed on this planet from a distant galaxy, wants to debate Bernie Sanders. He will only do so, however, in a giant arena and only if someone pledges millions of dollars to “women’s health issues or something.” Tragically, nobody asked him which ones.
Today, an ad started widely circulating on Twitter, purportedly from the Clinton campaign, featuring a tatted up, gelled, almost harassingly bearded man. “I’m man enough to vote for a woman...” it reads. “Are you?” The Clinton campaign confirms to Jezebel that this is not a real ad. Come on, guys.
Welp, here it is: Donald Trump, a monument to human hubris crafted out of rotting Spam, has gone from presumptive nominee to actual nominee. Republicans, here is your bed, and we hope you enjoy lying in it.
Malignant corn chip Donald Trump campaigned in West Virginia over the weekend, where he regaled an audience of coal miners with a series of impassioned thoughts about hairspray and how it can’t possibly affect the ozone layer. This is basically just performance art at this point.
If you’re Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, you probably spend a good amount of time these days fielding angry phone calls and quietly wondering how hard it is, really, to just fake your own death and disappear. But sometimes you also have to go defend Donald Trump!
At this point in the country’s history, we have enough of a few things: Kardashians, types of peanut butter, and straight, white men holding political office. We’re good! Thanks for your contribution, but we’re good. Now, a new political action committee is dedicated to spreading the gospel of having fewer white men…
Here we are, huddled together in a nightmarish dystopia where screaming giant cheese wedge Donald Trump is a leading presidential contender. Now, his campaign is hinting darkly that they’ll woo disaffected Bernie Sanders supporters. Bernie Sanders supporters: Please don’t fall for this shit.
It was always destined to come to this: Lena Dunham, a vocal Hillary Clinton supporter, and Donald Trump, a Day-Glo roadside billboard about jock itch, have engaged each other in a public fight. Let’s carefully ease into this one together while clinging frantically to the side of the pool and wishing we were someplace…
Hey, have you heard? Donald Trump is “lying low.” Donald Trump is staying out of the spotlight, kicking back, going low-key, “skirting controversy.” What? Since when? Since like Wednesday, of course! Isn’t that basically an eternity in the goldfish memory of our news cycle?
