Marge and Homer Simpsons have been weighing in on American politics for 27 seasons, and today they are making it known who the family is supporting for president in 2016.
“It’s 3 a.m. and the phone’s ringing in the White House. Who do you want answering that call,” the ad asks the Simpsons. It’s modeled off of the 2008 ad from Hillary Clinton’s campaign. It then cuts to Bill Clinton answering the phone before Hillary demands he hand it to her.
Compare it to a Donald Trump White House and you catch Trump reading a book of speeches by Adolf Hitler. He’s tweeting about how much he hates Elizabeth Warren and how happy he is that he exiled her. When the Situation Room calls him it takes several hours for him to take the call because he has to be inflated and spray-tanned.
The best part is that they have larger hands put on his tiny-Trump hands and a dog put on his head for his hair.
Russian Twitter propaganda predicted 2016 US election polls
But one conclusion was unequivocal: Russia unleashed an extensive campaign of fake news and disinformation on social media with the aim of distorting U.S. public opinion, sowing discord and swinging the election in favor of the Republican candidate Donald Trump.
Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
