Trump Re-ups Berlin Wall

2016-05-03-1462286869-6531543-519pxGreatwall_large.jpg

President Trump announced that he has accepted a bid on a wall that would run along the Mexican border from the German company that built the Berlin Wall for the GDR back in l961. According to aides to President Trump, the Mexicans will still be fronting the money, but the president wanted to make sure that if he was going to get another country to pay that they would be getting the best bang for their buck. Much discussion has gone into the question of what such a wall would be called and after days of deliberation a bipartisan group of both Mexican and American legislators have decided to call it The Trump Wall. Travelers coming either from Mexico to the United States or traveling South from the United States to Mexico will be greeted with large neon signs visible from miles way with the familiar Trump logo, in place of the usual welcome to the United States or Mexico. When Chris Matthews of MSNBC asked President Trump whether choosing the builder of the Berlin Wall would excite comparisons to the Cold War, Mr. Trump reiterated an earlier controversial statement that women who have abortions should receive “some form of punishment.” A White House spokesman commented,
“All along people have told President Trump that this was impossible, this was not gong to happen, but now it’s going up right before our eyes and after the whole thing is finished we’re planning on buying it back for the same 25 bucks that Peter Minuit paid the Indians for Manhattan. We’ll turn the whole thing into a casino. The president is convinced that his wall will make the Great Wall of China look like chump change.”

Donald Trump Wins Indiana Primary, Solidifies Path to GOP Nomination

Donald Trump won the Republican primary in Indiana on Tuesday, a blow to rival Ted Cruz in his effort to stop Trump from securing enough delegates to clinch the GOP nomination. Hillary Clinton led rival Bernie Sanders, but the results were too early to call. Trump is now the favorite to win the GOP nomination,… Read more »

SHOPPING DISCOUNT UPDATE:

Artist Who Drew Donald Trump With Small Penis Claims She Was Assaulted By Trump Fan

A Los Angeles-based artist claims she was punched in the face over the weekend because her drawing of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump shows him with a small penis.

Illma Gore, whose pastel “Make American Great Again” has been widely shared on social media, said a man attacked her Saturday near her LA home. The man drove up, got out of his black Honda Civic, hit her and yelled, “Trump 2016!” she wrote in an Instagram post with a photo showing her with a black eye. She said she wasn’t seriously hurt.

Gore reported the assault to police, and shared the police report with the New York Daily News. LA police couldn’t immediately comment on the investigation. Gore asked anyone with information about the attack to contact authorities.

Gore’s nude portrait of Trump shows him with the wrinkles and folds befitting a 69-year-old man — and a very small male sex organ. She said she debuted the drawing in February, before Trump defended his penis size at the March 3 Republican debate. 

Gore, 24, insists the portrait wasn’t necessarily calling out Trump on the size of his genitalia.

The work “was created to evoke a reaction from its audience, good or bad, about the significance we place on our physical selves,” Gore wrote on her website. “One should not feel emasculated by their penis size or vagina, as it does not define who you are. Your genitals do not define your gender, your power, or your status.

“Simply put, you can be a massive prick, despite what is in your pants.”

HuffPost’s efforts to reach Gore have been unsuccessful.

WARNING: The painting can be seen below, but it leaves little to the imagination.

The print has been a popular attraction at London’s Maddox Gallery since it went on display April 8.

The work has also aroused Trump supporters, who Gore claims have sent her death threats, according to he Independent. She also said someone claiming to be from Trump’s team threatened her with a lawsuit if she sold it.

Gore said proceeds from the eventual sale of “Make America Great Again” will benefit Safe Place for Youth, a homeless shelter in Los Angeles, according to the Daily Dot.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Jon Stewart: Donald Trump Is An Internet Troll Running For President

Comedian Jon Stewart returned to standup on Tuesday night, and wasted no time going after one of his favorite targets: Donald Trump. 

“It’s like an Internet comment troll ran for president,” the former “Daily Show” host said of the GOP presidential frontrunner at the 9th annual Stand Up for Heroes event in New York. 

(Warning: strong language ahead)

“When I was doing the program, we liked to make jokes about him because he’s hilarious and easily mockable,” Stewart said, according to Entertainment Weekly. “We would mock him with things such as, ‘He looks like a bewigged boiled ham,’ or something like that. So he would tweet in the middle of the night, ‘Jon Stewart’s real name is Leibowitz. He’s a Jew. Why does he run away from his heritage?’ You know, because that’s what I think most presidents would do. I remember Lincoln used to drunk tweet: ‘Hey, emancipate this, you fuck!'”

Stewart, who has had a long-running feud with Trump, was referring to tweets such as these: 

Stewart expressed some disbelief that Trump is a serious contender for the presidency.

Are we really doing this Donald Trump thing? We’re really doing that as a country?” Stewart said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “He’s fucked. I like to put my name in giant letters on everything I own as much as the next guy, but the only other people that do that are like 8-year-olds going to camp.”

Then, he broke out his famous Trump impression. 

“Where did I put that building? Oh there it is, Trump. Boom. Where’s my fucking helicopter? Boom, Trump,” Stewart said. “Where’s my wife? Boom, Trump, nice.”

If Trump is aware of Stewart’s jokes, he has yet to fire back on Twitter. 

Stewart had words for people who say they like Trump because of his unfiltered views. 

“People are like, ‘I like Trump; he says what he thinks,'” Stewart said, per The Hollywood Reporter. ”What he thinks is stupid. That’s like if your friend is like, ‘I would like to fuck your mom.’ Why would you say that? … I don’t give a shit if you’re politically correct, just be correct, correct.”

While it seems Trump got hit with the sharpest of comedic barbs, Stewart also told jokes about Ben Carson, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and even himself before wrapping it up with some exasperation over politics. 

“I’m done with this shit,” he said, according to EW. “Done, done, done.”

The One Thing Bill Maher Loves About Donald Trump

On “Real Time With Bill Maher” Friday night, Maher led a panel discussion about the Republican presidential candidates’ greatest weaknesses, inspired by the question that opened the GOP debate Wednesday. 

While Maher has expressed clearly negative feelings about Trump in the past, he did reveal one thing he appreciates about the candidate.

“Trump [was] the only guy who was honest,” Maher said to his panelists. “He said, ‘I don’t forgive.’ I love Trump for that. He’s like, I don’t forgive. You fuck with me, I’m Vito Corleone, I will follow you back to Italy. I will find you in your old age and I will stick a knife in your stomach.'”

Back in September, Maher called out Trump’s ignorant comments about undocumented workers by channeling him in a segment jokingly telling Americans to rally against Australians “taking” our jobs. 

“Australia is not sending us its best people,” he said. “They’re bringing drugs — yes, enough for everybody, but still — they’re rapists — OK, not rapists, but they do a lot of fucking — and I assume some are good people.”

Sigh. It’s not too surprising that Maher had trouble finding something about Trump to like.

Donald Trump To Host ‘Saturday Night Live’

Donald Trump will host “Saturday Night Live” on Nov. 7, NBC announced Tuesday.

The business mogul and GOP presidential candidate is a frequent target of the sketch comedy show’s skewering. He’s currently played by Taran Killam. 

 

While Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton made a cameo on “SNL” earlier this month, Trump will be the first 2016 candidate to host the show. 

Trump also hosted “SNL” in April 2004 during the first season of his NBC reality TV show “The Apprentice.”

Now You Can Buy Your Own Trump Blow-Up Sex Doll (For A Good Cause)

Syrian artist Saint Hoax claims not to pay much attention to the vitriol that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth. But last week, the presidential hopeful made some comments on Europe’s refugee crisis that he couldn’t ignore: If elected, Trump said that he would send all Syrian refugees in the U.S. back to their war-torn country. Because the refugees could, Trump opined, be ”a Trojan horse” for ISIS. 

Saint Hoax is responding with a satirical project involving blow-up sex dolls made to look like Donald Trump. For $ 39, you can own a Trump of your very own, to do with as you see fit. Proceeds from the sale of the dolls, all made in China (obviously), will go to the UN Refugee Agency to provide blankets, water, dry clothes and food to Syrian refugees. 

“I’m hoping to raise enough money to show people how a blow-up Donald is actually more useful than the actual Trump,” the artist told The Huffington Post in an email from Lebanon. In addition to dissing the candidate, Saint Hoax sees the dolls as a metaphor. 

“People can fill him up with air and deflate him at any minute,” he wrote. “It’s a symbolic representation of how a political leader is made. Each box includes a Trump doll and a needle for you to pop him whenever you feel like it.”

Donald Trump Just Won’t Give Up His Birther Fantasy In Colbert Interview

Donald Trump has been coming under fire for refusing to distance himself from the “birther” movement he helped fuel, which claims President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States.  On Tuesday night’s “Late Show,” host Stephen Colbert offered the GOP frontrunner a chance to put the question behind him once and for all. 

“I’m going to throw you a big fat meatball for you to hit out of the park right now,” Colbert said. “This is the last time you’ll ever have to address this question if you hit the ball.” 

“I want to hear this one,” Trump said.

“Barack Obama, born in the United States?” Colbert asked.

When Trump hesitated, Colbert tempted him with the “meatball.”

“It’s a meatball, it’s hanging out there,” Colbert said, mimicking a batter’s home-run swing. “Right there — c’mon.”

But for Trump, it was a swing and a miss. 

“I don’t talk about that anymore,” he said.

“You don’t talk about it?” Colbert asked.  

Trump said he would rather talk about jobs and veterans, but Colbert cut him off. 

“The meatball is now being dragged down subway steps by a rat,” Colbert said, referring to the now-famous pizza-stealing rat. “You missed the meatball.”

The response is in line with what Trump offered on Sunday to a similar question on “Meet the Press.”

“I just don’t want to discuss it,” Trump told host Chuck Todd, calling it a “long, complex issue.”

After taping his Colbert appearance, Trump tweeted that the birther movement began with Hillary Clinton: 

FactCheck.org reports that while the issue was raised by diehard Clinton supporters in 2008, there is nothing to link Clinton, her campaign or her staff to the issue.

Trump is set to appear on national TV again on Sunday on “60 Minutes.”

Donald Trump Finally Explains Why He Doesn’t Apologize

If any of the presidential candidates have something apologize for, eh … it’s probably Donald Trump. But don’t expect to hear a “sorry” anytime soon.

“I fully think apologizing’s a great thing, but you have to be wrong,” Trump told Jimmy Fallon on his show Friday.

“This is unbelievable,” laughed Fallon. And it is. 

During his brief time campaigning, Trump has managed to mock fellow candidates about their looks, publicly attack Fox’s Megyn Kelly over “unfair” questions during a debate and incense millions with his polarizing views on immigration.  

Yeah, that’s pretty unbelievable. In Trump’s defense, however, he did say if he was ever wrong, he would apologize “sometime in the hopefully distant future.”

So, yeah, we’ll probably all be dead by then, but at least that’s something.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.

Who Said it? Donald Trump or NBA Superstar Lebron James? The Answers Will Not Surprise You.

Presidential candidate and former Comedy Central Roastee Donald Trump has made multiple headlines this year for his repetitive racist and fascist-like remarks. His cartoonish rich-guy cliches have lent themselves to multiple satire articles. Some of them are better than others. What we’re getting at is that it’s harder than we had initially anticipated. Anyways, this is “Who Said It: Donald Trump or Lebron James?” You’ll probably get all of these right. They’re not that hard. Whatever. Here. Content.

“I will build the best wall, the biggest, the strongest, not penetrable, they won’t be crawling over it, like giving it a little jump and they’re over the wall, it will cost us trillions.”

Answer: Donald Trump

Pretty obvious right? Like it would be really weird for Lebron James to take such a radical stance on immigration during his run to 11 NBA All-Star selections. I guess it could feasibly happen, but it would be sort of out of character for him to actively try to appeal to the racist fears of Middle America out of nowhere.

“You know, God gave me a gift to do other things besides play the game of basketball.”

Answer: Lebron James.

Okay I guess technically Donald Trump could have said this. But realistically, the only time when this quote would make sense coming from him is if someone asked him “Donald, why aren’t you a professional basketball player?” Pretty specific question to ask him, given his reasons of notoriety, you know?

“Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are little short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”

Answer: Donald Trump

Again, this shouldn’t really blow your mind. Lebron James himself is black, so it would be pretty nuts for him to say he’s super against black guys counting his money. I can’t say that I know he’s not an anti-semite, but I feel like he wouldn’t generalize all jewish people like that. It’d be pretty fucked up if he did. I mean he’s better than that, you know? You should be 3 for 3 right now.

“The Oscars were a great night for Mexico, and why not – they are ripping off the US more than almost any other nation.”

Answer: Lebron James. No just kidding it’s Trump again.

Can you imagine if Lebron James was the same guy, but just really hated Mexicans the same way Trump does? Like, a dominant point forward and NBA champion, but just REALLY fucking cannot stand Mexicans. That’d be so weird. Anyways, yeah, you should have gotten this one right too. Sorry. I wish this quiz could be harder. We just didn’t plan it out very well.

“I love Kobe. I love his competitive nature. I love competing against him. I talked to him before the season just to say it’s great to have him back”

Answer: Lebron James

Are we even fucking trying at this point? Yeah, obviously that’s a Lebron James quote. Okay well, we warned you. Article is over. Whatever. We tried.

WSJ Columnist Says She Has Proof Latino Voters Actually Like Donald Trump

Although a Gallup poll released this week shows that Donald Trump is far and away the most disliked Republican presidential candidate among Latino voters, one conservative columnist says she may have found signs to the contrary, courtesy of some anecdotal evidence.

In her column on Thursday, The Wall Street Journal’s Peggy Noonan cited a conversation with a Dominican friend to explain why she thinks Trump’s “staying power in the polls reflects a change in the electorate.” 


Something is going on, some tectonic plates are moving in interesting ways. My friend Cesar works the deli counter at my neighborhood grocery store. He is Dominican, an immigrant, early 50s, and listens most mornings to a local Hispanic radio station, La Mega, on 97.9 FM. Their morning show is the popular “El Vacilón de la Mañana,” and after the first GOP debate, Cesar told me, they opened the lines to call-ins, asking listeners (mostly Puerto Rican, Dominican, Mexican) for their impressions. More than half called in to say they were for Mr. Trump. Their praise, Cesar told me a few weeks ago, dumbfounded the hosts. I later spoke to one of them, who identified himself as D.J. New Era. He backed Cesar’s story. “We were very surprised,” at the Trump support, he said. Why? “It’s a Latin-based market!”

There you have it, folks.

Trump These Thoughts

2015-08-28-1440800625-1773068-donaldtrump_1437861721269_22026609_ver1.0_640_480.jpg

I am the best. This is true because I said so. Even the sentences I write are the best except perhaps for the last one, which a teacher told me ended in a preposition, yet if I construct a sentence then whatever words I use are the best, because I said so and I went to Wharton which only accepts the best smart people.

Teachers are losers anyway. Imagine making less than one hundred thousand dollars a year and all you do is help kids learn? My grandchildren have car seats worth more than 100K. (I didn’t spell out the entire word again because so little money doesn’t deserve that many letters, not to mention the strain on my keyboard and typist, both of which happen to be the best.)

I don’t want stupid people like Charles Krauthammer working for me. I only recruit the best and biggest stars to work for me, like Gary Busey and Gene Simmons, instead of boring dopes like George Will.

I have a history of top people who have been winners on my shows. Remember Omarosa? Of course you do. She’s one of my best apprentices. I don’t hire stupid people that graduate from law schools, like Megyn Kelly. Dummies like that have opinions and think for themselves and that’s a dangerous problem when you’re a despot and only want to hear the sound of your own voice.

I will save money when I’m President. Why do we need two Dakotas? It’s stupid. I will combine North and South Dakota into one great state. It will be the best state without any stupid people like Jorge Ramos who has written a lot of books but they’re probably about drug dealers because some of the titles are Spanish.

I don’t like drug dealers and other bad people. I will get rid of them. Even the good ones if they are stupid. I will fix the economy too. I will build a counter featuring my top brand Trump items (did I mention they’re the best) in the White House and sell Trump ties, whisky flasks, cuff links and other really great items. Good foreigners, visiting dignitaries and people from Dakota who want to be and own the best will purchase them in such huge numbers that the sales tax alone will balance the national budget.

When I’m president if we go to war it won’t be a good war, it will be the best war, because Putin is stupid…

The Trump Monster from the GOP’s Id

Who remembers the 1956 science fiction classic, Academy Award-nominated film, Forbidden Planet, featuring the likes of Walter Pidgeon and Robby the Robot? To the sci-fi aficionado, it was in a league of its own and according to Gene Roddenberry an inspiration for the Star Trek franchise.

Do you remember the monster in this film? Of horrible appearance and temperament, his shape only appeared as an outline as he moved against powerful “disintegrator beams.” He was unstoppable and vanished only when the Walter Pidgeon character finally died.

Our heroes came upon a planet with an extraordinarily advanced civilization that mysteriously disappeared without a scratch 200,000 years earlier, with all its advanced machines still working. The crew couldn’t figure out what became of it, until the invisible monster began manifesting himself to them.

Having juiced up his brain to the max using the ancient civilization’s brain-enhancing machine, a crew member reveals his discovery just before dying from the procedure: “It’s monsters from the Id!” he proclaims.

Well, one way to look at the circus on the Republican side of the emerging presidential election campaign is to think of it in Forbidden Planet terms: yes, a “monster from the Id” has returned. Donald Trump represents the collective unconsciousness of what has become of the Republican Party. Like the monster in the film, he is threatening to destroy everything in his path.

The “Id” in Latin means the “It.” The construct was conceived by the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, and was called the “shadow” by Carl Jung, who extended its application to the notion of “collective unconsciousness” of an entire culture.

The point here is that Donald Trump does not stand apart from his many opponents seeking the Republican presidential nomination. On the contrary, he is their collective unconsciousness. Everything he stands for is what today’s Tea Party-infused Republican Party has become.

Scratch Jeb Bush, scratch Lindsey Graham, or Marco Rubio, or Scott Walker, get them a little pissed, and they all come out raging and whining like little Donald Trumps. On policy issues, like immigration, woman’s health, deregulation of Wall Street, screwing the 99 percent in deference to the one percent of the wealthiest, and perpetual war in the Middle East, they’re all virtually identical. They’re all their own Donald Trump nightmare.

When they wake up and look the menacing Donald Trump monster in the face, they see themselves. While they’re railing against Trump’s manner and his seeming relentless intent to bully and insult just about everybody, they must see that they are he and vice-versa. He is their collective Id raging away.

The Id, as the experts explain, is a psychological construct that corresponds to the raging state of consciousness of the newborn, the elementary basis of the subconscious mind that seeks only instant gratification without regard for anything else. It represents the “tendency to seek immediate gratification of any impulse.” It “knows no good or evil, has no morality.” It is composed of a ” set of uncoordinated instinctual trends,” a “cauldron full of seething expectations,” and so on. All very Donald Trump.

Insofar as Donald Trump is this collective Id of the current Republican Party, there is no way his opponents can make him go away. The more they attack him, the more they energize him. They are stuck with him.

So, like the dystopian, doomsday themes of so much science fiction these days, that Forbidden Planet took to the highest level by positing the more advanced a population becomes the more the seeds of its own destruction are empowered in its collective unconsciousness, the outcome for the present Republican Party is dim. As it cannot contain its raging collective Id, Donald Trump will not be going away.

The only way to alter this inevitability would be for one or more of the GOP candidates to begin repudiating the content of their collective mindset. Who’s going to stake their campaign on reasonable alternatives to the GOP madness? Does anyone have the courage, the moral suasion? Otherwise, it will be left to someone from beyond their collective walls to surely do it.

Donald Trump Collects Fees Insisting ‘This Is Not A Fundraiser’

NORWOOD, Mass. (AP) — Donald Trump held a $ 100-per-person campaign event — which he repeatedly insisted wasn’t a fundraiser — outside of Boston on Friday evening as he backpedaled on his previous pledge not to accept contributions for his campaign.

“This is not a fundraiser tonight, just so you understand,” Trump told reporters at the sprawling Norwood property owned by local car dealership owner Ernie Boch Jr. A combination of die-hard fans and those curious to see the spectacle were treated to food from chef Tony Ambrose and a live cover band, in addition to a speech from the billionaire businessman and Republican candidate.

 

 

Trump said the money raised was only being used to offset the costs of the event and said people attending could choose to pay whatever they wanted.

That’s despite multiple signs that were posted at the property’s entrance telling those arriving, “Please have cash ready or make checks payable to: Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.” and “Entry Fee $ 100 Per Person.”

 

 

The event comes as Trump has reversed course on his early pledge to self-fund his campaign entirely.

“I don’t need anybody’s money,” he said in his announcement speech, declaring: “I’m using my own money. I’m not using the lobbyists. I’m not using donors. I don’t care. I’m really rich.”

But Trump’s tone has changed in recent weeks as he’s warmed to the idea, adding a contributions page to his website and attending a fundraiser held by a super PAC supporting his candidacy.

“I actually like the idea of investing in a campaign,” he told CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday. “But it has to be no strings attached.”

 

 

Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said earlier Friday the campaign had received tens of thousands in small-dollar donations in the last eight weeks from people eager to contribute to Trump’s effort. But he said the campaign had not made any efforts to solicit money and said contributions would remain “a very small portion” of the campaign’s funds.

Boch said the event had “started out as a fundraiser because (that’s) the usual thing for candidates.” But Boch added: “It wasn’t like that with Mr. Trump. He likes the idea of having people come in. So the money was not what he was interested in.”

Speaking to attendees under a giant tent on Boch’s yard later in the event, Trump continued to boast about all the contributions he claims he’s turned down.

“I feel a little bit like, ‘What’s going on?'” he said. “We’re turning down millions of dollars.”

He also launched into a personal attack against Huma Abedin, a top aide to Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton, who has recently been swept up in the controversy over Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

 

 

Trump, mispronouncing Abedin’s first name as “Uma,” suggested Abedin had shared classified information with her husband, former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, who resigned after sending explicit images of himself to women he’d met online. Trump called Weiner a “perv,” and “one of the great sleazebags of our time.”

 

 

Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill responded with a statement saying, “Trump has spent the summer saying offensive things about women, but there is no place for patently false, personal attacks towards a staff member.”

“He should be ashamed of himself, and others in his own party should take a moment to stand up to him and draw the line for once,” Merrill said.

What Pope Francis Must Say to Donald Trump

There is a rising tide of nativism washing over the United States at this particular moment. We have seen such waves recurrently in our history. In the 1840s, it was the Know-Nothings, who hated Catholics and opposed Irish immigration and were even responsible for riots and other acts of violence.

In the 1920’s, it was the turn of the Ku Klux Klan. Even while these hooded terrorists attacked African-Americans in the south, they also campaigned against immigration on racial and religious grounds. The eastern and southern Europeans then entering the country, they maintained, were impossible to assimilate. They were Catholic, they were Jewish, and most of all they were “un-American.” These campaigns succeeded in largely shutting down immigration to the United States for forty years, from the 1920’s to the middle 1960’s.

Today, we are witnessing what is shaping up to be a sorry rerun of this awful history. Anti-immigrant sentiment has been on the rise in political circles for some time. It was on vivid display in Virginia in last year’s Republican congressional primary, when the upstart David Brat unseated Eric Cantor, one of the most powerful men in Congress, on the strength of a thinly-disguised nativist appeal.

The nativism on display today can no longer even be described as “thinly disguised.” It is open, it is blatant, and it is foul. Donald Trump, of course, remains the biggest offender. He has spoken in the kind of blunt, racist language that even the defenders of segregation avoided in the 1960’s. When talking about Mexican migrants, he has used language like “rapists,” and “criminals,” to brand and stereotype and demean an entire group of people. He routinely uses the kind of vulgarities that would have made even George Wallace blush.

Trump’s gutter vulgarity has drawn the Republican field with him. Ben Carson, who was once a world-class neurosurgeon, has more recently called upon the Department of Defense to use drone aircraft to attack “caves” that immigrants use in their passage across the border. And Carson is supported by the so-called Christian right?

And then there is Jeb Bush. Has there ever been a more inept pretender to a throne since Aethelred the Unready? When criticized for his continued use of the term “anchor babies, he explained that he really meant to apply it to “Asian people,” not Hispanics. Good God, what a consummate disaster!

Pope Francis is coming to the United States in just a few weeks. And I devoutly believe that the most urgent task confronting the Pope on his visit is to call the American people away from the poisonous swamp of nativism.

Pope Francis is ideally suited for this task. He has pledged his pontificate to the defense of the marginalized and has made a special concern of his the plight of immigrant peoples. In July, 2013, early in his pontificate, he traveled to the island of Lampedusa, in the Mediterranean, the scene of so many preventable human tragedies. “Immigrants dying at sea, in boats which were vehicles of hope and became vehicles of death.” The Pope fairly wept at the dimensions of the horror he confronted.

Pope Francis’ trip to Lampedusa was meant to remind Christians of the common origin and destiny of all of humankind. “Cain, where is your brother?” God asked. Cain replied, disingenuously, that he was not his brother’s keeper. But, Pope Francis insisted, we are one another’s keepers, in the best sense of that term. We have obligations, transcendent obligations, to one another that are not contained or confined by the mere accidents of political boundaries.

In his speech to the European Parliament, in November, 2014, Pope Francis clothed this scriptural appeal in more philosophical dress. Human dignity is not an individualistic but a communal value. We are not isolated beings, without connections or duties to others. Pope Francis relied on this premise to develop a strong argument on behalf of the common good. And an aspect of the common good, he asserted, is a humane response to immigration.

“The men and women” who arrive “daily on the shores of Europe” require “acceptance and assistance.” Christianity, of course, has a long and deep commitment to a welcoming hospitality, and Pope Francis appealed to this tradition to summon his audience to action. But he also urged them to solve the root causes of the immigration crisis — the poverty and the war that has displaced so many people from their homes and driven them to risk their very beings in a dangerous passage.

I encourage Pope Francis to address the language of coarse hatred that is increasingly becoming de rigeur in American politics. No doubt he is far too sophisticated to call out Donald Trump by name. But Trumpism is an ominous trend that must be denounced. More than anything else, Pope Francis must condemn the rising hatred that he represents and espouses.

Trump: ‘Making America Hate Again!’

Trump’s official campaign slogan is “Make America Great Again!” Perhaps he should change it to the headline above.

The Huffington Post has made an editorial decision to put Trump articles in the Entertainment section instead of the political section. This seemed like a good idea at the time.

Admittedly he is the class clown — and the schoolyard bully. Oddly, also the teacher’s pet. But his toxic mix of egotism, cynicism and racism simply isn’t entertaining. It is, however, still a spectacle.

His now infamous tirade about Mexicans being criminals and rapists is well-known.

Recently two cowardly young thugs in Boston allegedly urinated on and used a metal pole to beat a 58-year-old sleeping Hispanic homeless man, fracturing his nose and causing other serious injuries. One of them reportedly told the police “Donald Trump was right, all of these illegals need to be deported.” (Apparently, the two assailants checked his immigration status before brutalizing him.) A news person asked Trump for his reaction, and Trump reportedly said “That would be a shame” adding this remarkable statement, “I will say, the people that are following me are very passionate. They love this country. They want this country to be great again. But they are very passionate. I will say that.”

His supporters chanted “USA! USA! USA!” when some protesters were thrown out of a Trump event in Phoenix — as if they were cheering at Wrestlemania.

This week at a press conference in Iowa, several times Trump ordered Univision anchorman Jorge Ramos, a respected journalist and an American citizen, to “Sit down,” as if Ramos were a dog being ordered by his unkind master to “Sit.” Trump also added to “Go back to Univision.” Then Trump nodded at one of his security guards who escorted Ramos out of the room.

In the hallway, a Trump supporter further humiliated Ramos telling him “Get out of my country.” Ramos responded with restraint, class, and dignity.

The delusional Donald has often claims that he will win the “Hispanic” vote. This assertion might be just another Trump empty promise. A recent Gallop Poll shows among Hispanic voters, he has the highest disapproval rate (65 percent) of any GOP candidate.

Apparently he is looking to carry Asian vote as well. Here’s Trump mocking them and doing a racially stereotypical impersonation of “these people”:

While Trump may not carry Latinos or Asians, he will likely carry the racists’ vote. It isn’t surprising that Trump is receiving endorsements from white supremacy groups and neo-Nazis. David Duke, former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, has reportedly called Trump the best of the GOP candidates.

In an interview with Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, Trump reportedly said “I don’t need his endorsement; I certainly wouldn’t want his endorsement” and added “I don’t need anyone’s endorsement.” When asked if he would repudiate the endorsement, Trump is quoted as saying “Sure, I would if that would make you feel better.”

That doesn’t make me feel any better.

Donald Trump Discusses Ties With David Herzka at Campaign Event

ONLY IN AMERICA: Opportunistic designer David Herzka really tied one on with Donald Trump Sunday morning, but not in the colloquial sense. During a rise-and-shine breakfast at the Long Branch, N.J., home of his daughter Ivanka’s in-laws Seryl and Charles Kushner, Trump mingled with 100 or so of their inner circle. “It was pretty low-key. But he’s very serious and believes in what he’s doing,” Herzka said. “Everyone felt he’s really a potential contender.”
The Kushners’ enterprising son, Jared, made the rounds with Ivanka, but another power couple — his venture capitalist-skilled brother Joshua and Karlie Kloss — were not on the scene. Trump’s son-in-law no doubt has his reserve of potential campaign supporters as owner of Kushner Properties and the New York Observer.
Herzka, who started his direct-to-consumer online neckwear line David Fin earlier this year, showed his own moxie by having a word with The Donald and giving him a tie in what he thought would be the candidate’s favorite colors — red, white and blue. Herzka told Trump about the Battery Park-based start-up that makes all of its ties in the U.S. and donates $ 5 of each $ 85 sale to Hiring Our Heroes, a nonprofit that helps veterans find

Woman Sees Donald Trump In Her Vegan Butter

I can’t believe it’s not Donald!

Jan Castellano was getting ready to have some breakfast when she almost lost her lunch. She opened a tub of Earth Balance Organic Spread with plans to put the vegan butter on her toast — only to see what she claims is the image of Donald Trump looking right back at her.

It wasn’t necessarily appetizing, but it was entertaining.

“This was pretty much before I had coffee, so I was easily amused,” Castellano, 63, told The Huffington Post. “I needed to put on my glasses to make sure it was him.”

Castellano, of Wildwood, Missouri, says she wasn’t thrilled to see The Donald, mainly because “he is everywhere these days.”

She thought about saving the Trump-enhanced spread and sell it on eBay “so I could donate the money to Hillary Clinton.”

But short-term hunger won out over long-term wealth.

“It was the only butter I had, so I had to make the sacrifice,” she explained.

Currently, only Trump’s eye and part of his mouth remain in the tub, and Castellano hopes his campaign “melts away like butter” as well.

HuffPost reached out to Earth Balance to see if the Trump face was intentional, but the company had no comment.

Latinos Don’t Love Donald Trump

Business mogul Donald Trump proclaimed last month that Latinos love him. He might want to check the latest polling from Gallup, which found Latinos were more likely to say they disliked than liked him by a 51-point margin.

His results were disastrous compared to every other Republican presidential candidate on the survey, as illustrated by this chart released on Monday:

It’s not surprising that Trump is unpopular with Latinos. He opened his campaign by claiming the Mexican government was sending rapists and other criminals into the U.S. as undocumented immigrants, and his stance has hardened from there. Last week, he proposed ending birthright citizenship for children born in the U.S., and vowed to deport all undocumented immigrants.

Gallup notes that it did not poll Latinos on Trump before his announcement speech, so there’s no clear mark for how it affected his image. In their polling since, he’s been consistently viewed unfavorably.

Although Latinos don’t typically rank immigration as the top issue for choosing a candidate, harsh rhetoric against undocumented immigrants was considered a major factor in the GOP’s dismal result with Latinos in the 2012 presidential election. 

Trump has succeeded in drawing Latinos’ attention, at the very least. Gallup reports that 8 in 10 of those polled had formed an opinion on Trump, compared to about 6 in 10 who had formed an opinion of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. None of the other candidates hit the 50 percent mark for familiarity with Latinos.

Bush is faring the best with Latinos, who were more likely to say they viewed him favorably than unfavorably by an 11-point margin. His margin of favorability has actually gone up, although it’s yet to be seen whether there will be fallout from his recent stumbles over the term “anchor babies.” The former governor has taken a more moderate tack on immigration than Trump, and opposes changing the 14th Amendment to end birthright citizenship. 

Among Democrats, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a major advantage. She has a net 40 favorability score, and about 75 percent of Latinos know who she is. Only 25 percent of Latinos were familiar with Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders. The results were even worse for former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb and former Rhode Island Sen. and Gov. Lincoln Chafee — only 14 percent of Latinos were familiar with them.

Gallup conducted the poll by telephone from July 8 to Aug. 23 as part of the U.S. Daily Survey. They polled a random sample of 2,183 Hispanic adults in the U.S. The margin of sampling error is ±5 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level.

Ceasefire Over: Donald Trump Resumes War Of Words With Megyn Kelly

Megyn Kelly, host of “The Kelly File” on Fox News, is back from vacation — and Donald Trump wasted no time resuming his attacks on her. 

Shortly after Monday night’s broadcast, Kelly’s first since Aug. 12, Trump fired off a series of tweets critical of her, including a retweet in which she was called a “bimbo” and another that remarked on her looks

Here’s the Republican presidential candidate’s reaction to the broadcast, which featured an interview with teacher and activist Cornel West:

Trump has been feuding with Kelly since the Republican debate on Aug. 6, saying she was unfair to him by asking about the misogynistic insults he has directed at women over the years.

Hours after the debate, Trump sent out a series of tweets and retweets attacking her. Then, he infamously said she had “blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her — wherever.”  Trump later claimed “wherever” referred to her nose.

Shortly after the Trump tirade, Kelly went on vacation, which Trump implied was “probably” because of fallout over the debate. However, Fox News said the vacation had been planned.

The attacks on Kelly reportedly led to a phone call between Trump and Fox News chairman Roger Ailes in which the two agreed to an apparent ceasefire

Based on Trump’s tweets late Monday, the ceasefire may be over.

Donald Trump Can Be Stopped — Draft Kim Kardashian

With Donald Trump leading the presidential race in the Republican Party by a “huge” margin, the Democratic Party needs to get serious here and produce a world-class elite candidate who can compete down at this level.

The obvious choice is Kim Kardashian.

Kim would wrest media coverage away from Trump. On recent evenings, all three networks of CNN, MSNBC and Fox News abandoned their prime-time news programs, and instead cut away for lengthy segments to a live video feed of Trump giving speeches. Flipping channels provided no relief because they all showed the exact same thing, like a presidential address. Trump was blabbing on and on about his own magnificence without saying a single word of substance, and all three news networks remained locked onto it.

Kim could give speeches that say absolutely nothing as well, but she could deliver them in a bikini.

Now that would trump Trump.

Plus, Kim is far more qualified to be president than Trump. She is way more famous. Her reality TV show was far better than Trump’s. And Kim has 35 million followers on Twitter compared to Trump’s paltry four million followers. It’s not even close.

The presidential debates between the two would really distinguish the best candidate to lead this nation. Trump would start by asserting that Kim is not a “10.” But this would not go over very well because the voters would see that Trump just attacks opponents without any basis in reality.

Trump would then seek to impugn Kim’s moral integrity by reminding everyone that she made a sex video. Kim, however, would turn the tables on Trump and create a you’re-no-Jack-Kennedy moment that would achieve presidential debate history by challenging Trump to make his own sex video and post it online so voters would have a basis for comparing the two candidates.

Actually, this is not such a bad idea. After all, with Trump proclaiming that voters should just “trust” him that he would be a good president based upon his personality instead of having to present any specific policies, voters do need some sort of a way to assess his ability to perform.

Now, some say that the Democratic Party should just stick with its current front-runner, Hillary Clinton. But Hillary has some very big problems in this new upside-down universe. She is intelligent, experienced and accomplished. That’s not good. Hillary also has thought through many difficult issues facing this nation and she has developed smart policy positions on how she would seek to solve these issues as president. Big mistake. It’s just difficult to see what all that dull and boring stuff has to do with anything.

So the Democrats need to rise to the occasion here and kick-off a movement to draft Kim.

Trump versus Kim will be the greatest spectacle of our time. The news networks will achieve record ratings and, of course, record profits. It will be the greatest reality TV show ever.

And a sad day for democracy.

Trump Excels at Business, But He Has No Business in International Politics

Listening to Donald Trump’s egotistical take, you’d think his loud business personality translates perfectly into international politics. Mexico acting up? No matter; he’ll hop on the phone and curse Mexico out. China spiffing us in trade deals? Who cares! A solution is a phone call and an immature insult away. “Your country sucks, China!” Problem solved.

Except while that might work on TV, it would backfire in reality. As several commentators have already pointed out, Trump’s “refusal to act diplomatically [would be] catastrophic for the lead diplomat of the United States.” Diplomacy requires subtlety, tact and restraint — something everyone from Sun Tzu to Henry Kissinger agrees on. But screaming insults like a petulant toddler? That sort of behavior is best left on The Apprentice.

I’m not saying business experience has no place in politics. It obviously does. Outsiders bring valuable insights into the political process, and a more realistic representation of how business works — stressing restraint and negotiation over needless offense — translates extremely well into international diplomacy.

But Trump’s view of how his own bombastic business personality would play in the political realm is remarkably shortsighted. He speaks of countries as if they were individuals, and he acts like solutions to complex problems lie in three-word slogans. That pithy ideology might work for Trump’s personal life, but it would spell disaster if adopted by the president of the United States. In Trump’s worldview as presented thus far, one gets the impression that Israel-Palestine can be solved by a few stern phone calls and maybe a fancy steak dinner afterwards. If that fails, then bombs should do the trick. Yeah right.

Obviously, Trump’s oversimplification of international relations has appeal. Most people don’t have the background knowledge, the patience, or the time to truly consider the intricacies of, say, the development of ISIL. As Robert Greene writes in The 48 Laws of Power, short mantras have an intrinsic draw, a resonance that longer, more nuanced takes on things just don’t have. And that’s fine — for the average citizen. But the president of the United States, wielding a governmental branch clothed in immense executive power, should have a more thorough understanding of foreign policy.

He or she should understand that illegal immigration is not a problem the Mexican government alone can control, or that empirical evidence suggests undocumented immigrants actually commit less crime than native-born Americans. He or she should acknowledge that a disgusting phenomenon like ISIL has complex political, religious, and historical underpinnings that will not be, cannot be, dismantled by a few well-placed explosives — rhetorical or military. A responsible president should know that criticisms of China and Japan for manipulating currency should be restrained and qualified, to acknowledge (for example) Japan’s two decades of careful economic policy aimed at counteracting slumping fiscal performance. And so on.

Because in foreign policy, jabs aren’t taken lightly; and unlike in Trump’s business affairs, insulting a country ticks off a heck of a lot more people than the one person on the other side of the phone line.

Business isn’t simple; foreign policy isn’t either. If Trump wants to be taken seriously by the general electorate, he should demonstrate the nuanced understanding of foreign policy exemplified by candidates ranging from Jeb Bush to Hillary Clinton.

As things stand now, the world is far too dangerous and complex a place for Donald Trump to be at its helm, his hand hovering over the nuclear button, ready to shout “you’re fired!” at anyone who ticks him off.

Donald Trump In Alabama: Bring It On

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Republican front-runner Donald Trump on Friday joked, “I know how Billy Graham felt” as he addressed the largest crowd yet of his thriving presidential campaign.

“I would like to have the election tomorrow,” Trump crowed. “I don’t want to wait.”

Thousands of Alabama voters came out to hear the New Yorker bring his message to the Deep South. The 40,000-seat Ladd-Peebles Stadium was about half-full when Trump began his speech.

Trump was welcomed by an array of Alabama politicians, including Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions, who praised him for the attention he’s drawn to immigration issues. And Trump led off his speech with more criticism of immigrants living in the country illegally, drawing loud cheers when he repeated his promise to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

 He reiterated his intention to end “birthright citizenship” for children of immigrants here illegally.

Trump also attacked the Obama administration’s deal with Iran to restrict that country’s nuclear program, calling it “so sad.”

 

And he promised to “repeal and replace Obamacare” — the health care law that’s President Barack Obama’s singular domestic achievement.

Before Trump arrived, his fans — some carrying signs, others wearing T-shirts supporting the billionaire businessman — spoke of his outsider status in a crowded field dominated by former and current elected officials as the song “Sweet Home Alabama” blared from loudspeakers.

 

 ”Donald Trump is telling the truth and people don’t always like that,” said Donald Kidd, a 73-year-old retired pipe welder from Mobile. “He is like George Wallace, he told the truth. It is the same thing.”

Wallace, a fierce opponent of civil rights, served as governor of Alabama and sought the presidency multiple times.

Kidd said Trump is a “breath of fresh air,” and praised him as a businessman with common sense.

Savannah Zimmerman, a 27-year-old registered nurse from Mobile, agreed. “I think he appeals to us Southerners because he tells it like it is and he has strong opinions. That is the way we are here in the South,” she said.

Mary Anne Bousenitz, 59, a retired psychiatrist from Tuscaloosa, said she isn’t offended by the insults Trump has directed at women, like “dog” and “bimbo.”

“I’m not married to the man and it’s not like I’m going to have to sit across a turkey at the table with him,” she said.

Interest in the candidate forced organizers to move a planned rally from the Mobile Civic Center, which holds about 2,000 people, to Ladd-Peebles Stadium, a 40,000-seat football stadium.

Before the rally, Trump tweeted: “We are going to have a wild time in Alabama tonight! Finally, the silent majority is back!”

During the height of the Vietnam War, Richard Nixon sought the backing of the “silent majority,” widely considered to be Americans who stood behind the Republican president and weren’t getting the attention that protesters attracted. Trump has derided elected officials and cast his candidacy as an outsider’s bid.

The Bush campaign on Friday night e-mailed thousands of supporters in Alabama, denouncing Trump as a Republican presidential candidate. The campaign statement said that Trump favors partial-birth abortions, supports restrictions on gun rights and backs laws that infringe on states’ land rights.

 

 

“Trump’s positions are deeply out of step with the Alabama way of life,” the campaign said in the email. “We know Alabama cherishes life, especially the life of the unborn.” 

Right to Rise USA, the super PAC supporting Bush, tweeted photos of a plane, with a banner ad bashing Trump and promoting Bush, flying over the stadium, before Trump’s rally.

67 Times Rappers Name Dropped ‘Donald Trump’

Rappers love Donald Trump. 

Despite his many controversial stances in his presidential campaign platform, his name is synonymous with extreme wealth in the hip-hop world. Since the 1980s, rappers have mentioned Trump in their lyrics — in some cases have named entire songs after him.  

Many rappers have praised his wealth, comparing their finances and fiscal aspirations to that of the multibillion dollar business mogul.

“I buy cars with straight cash, have meetings with Donald Trump,” said rapper Ludacris in his 2003 song, “Hip Hop Quotables.” 

But it doesn’t stop there.

“Trump is 90s hip-hop all day,” Comedian Mike Yard told host Larry Wilmore in a July episode of “The Nightly Show.”

Yard pointed out that Trump loves gold, has his own vodka and pulls “gangsta” moves like publicly giving out a U.S. Senator’s phone number. 

“He’s like the 50 Cent of the Republican party,” Yard said. “All he needs is to get shot nine times and he’s golden.”

Since Trump has yet to drop a mixtape, we’ve compiled 67 hip-hop songs over the last 25 years that mention the mogul’s name in the video above. 

Enjoy!

18 Real Things Donald Trump Has Actually Said About Women

Donald Trump claims to “cherish” women, but his actions — and words — suggest otherwise. 

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly called him out on his sexist behavior during the GOP debate on August 6, reminding him: “You have called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs’, ‘dogs’, ‘slobs’, and ‘disgusting animals.” 

 Trump laughed off the question, claiming he doesn’t “have the time for total political correctness.” Later, Trump called Kelly a “bimbo” and said that he “didn’t recognize” the remarks she was referencing. 

Well, we recognize them. 

Trump has consistently insulted, belittled, sexualized and stereotyped women. He has also taken the time to personally insult individual notable women like Sarah Jessica Parker, Rosie O’Donnell, Cher, Bette Midler, and others. 

 Here are 18 of the most outrageous things Trump has said about women:

Ivanka Trump Discusses Fashion and Business — But No Politics, Please

With an expanding signature collection of her own, an executive role at the Trump Organization and a father who’s poking the political hornet’s nest with his decidedly non-PC style, it’s safe to say Ivanka Trump has a lot going on.
Accustomed to operating in overdrive, the Wharton grad is now suiting up 3,500 Trump Hotel staffers in uniforms she designed. Trump handles design and the creative vision for the company’s nine existing properties and four yet-to-be-opened ones in Baku, Azerbaijan; Rio de Janeiro; Vancouver, and Washington, D.C. She also serves as executive vice president of development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization. With two young children and an equally ambitious husband in Jared Kushner, the self-described “American wife, mother and entrepreneur” may represent a different sort of bold-faced paradigm in the fashion business. While that alone is something of a feat, it is not a moniker the former model acknowledged in any way during an interview last week.
Speaking about her new uniform designs, Trump very much stayed on message. While she has cheered on her father Donald’s take-no-prisoners presidential bid to her nearly 1.7 million Twitter followers and 582,000 more on Instagram, she wasn’t about to engage on political matters. “I

Trump President…? No. Trump Performance Artist…? Oh Yes.

For some strange reason, the last few days I have been thinking about legendary performance artist Marina Abramovic. For the last forty years she has been making a brutal spectacle of herself and her collaborators, orchestrating unforgiving performances which often last for hours or even days at a time, requiring extraordinary endurance from the artist and lots of patience from the audience.

2015-08-11-1439332962-6623660-HP_1_marina.jpg

In 2010, she had a solo exhibition at MOMA, which devoted numerous galleries to recreations of her performances from the past forty years. But in the central atrium, crowds gathered to watch Marina Abramovic herself — sitting quietly while staring at any member of the audience courageous enough to sit at the small table opposite her. In total silence, without moving a muscle, Marina would stare at them. They were only allowed to sit and look back at her. They knew that no words could be exchanged. Some of them lasted for a few minutes, others mere seconds. A few even broke into tears. But Marina herself sat motionless from the moment the museum opened in the morning until the time the museum closed.

2015-08-11-1439333018-9196404-HP_2_trumpbronze.jpg

The only explanation I can come up with for my thinking about Marina Abramovic is the nonstop news coverage of the Republican primary debates. So, here comes Donald Trump, completely dominating the event, over-shouting each and every one of the participants, including moderators. I started to think about the only person whose formidable face and equally formidable hair could compete with Donald’s. That was a man who lived 2,000 years ago, and whose bronze portrait I saw recently at the exhibition at The Getty Center. This ancient man definitely could stand up to Donald.

Donald not only performed better than anyone else — he was also the most entertaining. I have to admit I was not listening to him as much as I was watching him. All of a sudden I stopped seeing Mr. Trump as a presidential candidate and realized that I’m watching a formidable performance artist with the potential for a real art career. Just imagine Donald in the central atrium of MOMA, standing at a podium and yelling at any member of the audience who would choose to stand in front of him and yell back. So Mr. Trump, here’s my two cents! Why don’t you embrace a career as a performance artist? If you do, I promise to review your inaugural performance!

2015-08-11-1439333116-8168331-HP_3_bonaparte.jpg

Now that we have covered the political theater, let’s touch upon the unprecedented overhaul of Italy’s state museums in its attempt to shake up its notorious bureaucracy. The current issue of The Art Newspaper reports that the Italian Ministry of Culture is searching for energetic new manager-directors for twenty of the country’s most important state museums, including the Borghese Gallery in Rome and Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

2015-08-11-1439333168-4964606-HP_4_medusa.jpg

For the first time ever, foreign candidates have been invited to apply and a fluency in business management is the main requirement. Opposition to the reform in Italy has been fierce.

2015-08-11-1439333231-2127293-HP_5_scuola.jpg

Equally challenging is the situation with Italy’s tourism. According to a New York Times article, in the 1970s, Italy was the world’s number one tourist destination. Today, it has slid to fifth place. Italy doesn’t even have a minister for tourism, as other European countries do. As beautiful and romantic as Italy has been for all of us for all these years, maybe it is time for Italy to face the business realities of the new millennium.

Stephen Colbert ‘Prays’ Trump Stays In Presidential Race

Stephen Colbert on Monday joked that he “prays” Donald Trump stays in the presidential race so Colbert can make jokes about him when “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” debuts on CBS Sept. 8.

“I just want to say that every little boy grows up believing they could be president of the United States, and I’m so happy that little boy turned out to be Donald Trump,” Colbert said at the Television Critics Association press tour. “I just hope he’s taking his vitamins. Please stay healthy until I get on the air. Don’t do anything dangerous, don’t ride any motorcycles. Every night I light a candle and pray that he stays in the race and I also hope that no one puts that candle anywhere near his hair.”

Until he gets on the air, all his jabs amount to “dry Trumping,” Colbert said, pulling out his phone so he could live-tweet that joke from the stage. 

Though he’s still prepping for his “Late Show” debut, Colbert appeared on camera for the final “Daily Show” episode last week, and he revealed something that the audience wasn’t aware of: He and the other former correspondents chanted, “Made him cry! Made him cry!” when retiring host Jon Stewart teared up during the last tribute to him. 

“That might be my favorite thing I ever did on ‘The Daily Show,’” Colbert said. “He never let you thank him.”

When he was asked to do that final tribute to his former boss, Colbert said he knew it would be a major challenge to keep Stewart on stage as it happened. Colbert said he thought, “He’s going to flop on the dock like a fish — he’s not going to want me to do that. I was like a rodeo clown. I honestly thought he was going to leave.” 

What came through during the 40-minute press conference on Monday was Colbert’s eagerness to get on the air and his relief at having dropped the lovable blowhard persona he refined during his time on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report.” Having come from an improvisational background, he said he looked forward to performing and interviewing as himself, not as “Colbert.”

“Not having to run everything I say through the character in my head is really lovely,” Colbert said. “I felt I did everything I could with him and everything I could do with that show, other than [showcase] my honest interest in my guest, which is almost constant. Now I feel almost more freed up.

 “When you’re interviewing people, you don’t know what’s going to happen. That’s much closer to how I learned my craft,” Colbert said. “All I really want from a guest is someone who has something to say, so I can play with them.”

That said, he hopes to have serious conversations not just with actors and singers, but with authors, politicians and other kinds of public figures, as well. 

“The audience followed us” during those kinds of conversations on “The Colbert Report,” he said, “and I don’t see any reason why it should stop.” (Among the news sources he reads daily: Reddit’s political subreddits, the Drudge Report and The Huffington Post.)

Colbert said he spent time with David Letterman before he left the show to ask him about hosting, and to thank him for being a role models. Colbert said he “stole” from Letterman, especially when he read letters from lawyers that specifically stated they should not be read on the air.

“That idea of not being bound by authority and not thinking anyone’s too good to be made fun of — including myself,” all comes from the Letterman model, Colbert said. 

The last musical guest on “The Colbert Report” was Kendrick Lamar, who will be Colbert’s first musical guest on “The Late Show,” Colbert revealed Monday. News broke recently that his first guest will be George Clooney. 

 ”I wish I could have done better than George Clooney,” he deadpanned.

Donald Trump, Black Lives Matter, And the Power of Disruption

It was a good week for disruptive innovation. Three protestors affiliated with Black Lives Matter shut down Bernie Sanders yet again, this time at a Seattle rally Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump escalated his disruptive impact on the Republican presidential field, with a post-debate remark implying that Fox reporter Megyn Kelly was menstruating when she asked him provocative questions, fittingly, about his coarse put-downs of women.

The two forms of disruption invite comparison.

BLM is disrupting the most progressive candidate in the Democratic field. Why? Because in the year since the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, the issue of systemic violence against blacks has still not broken through to become a first-tier issue, even among liberals.

Why Sanders? Because he is a soft target, with little if any security at his rallies and not inclined to call the cops on protestors. So he suffers disproportionately for the sins of the larger system. Is this fair? Not exactly. On the other hand it seems to be working.

Sanders has put out an excellent statement on criminal justice reform, which is far stronger than anything else out there from a mainstream candidate.

Even though these tactics are not pretty, we can expect the entire Democratic field to give more attention to issues of structural racism.

Black Lives Matter, rather like Occupy Wall Street and its spawn, is not a top-down movement. It is “horizontal,” in the jargon du jour, a kind of loose confederation of like minded activists, rather like (pardon the analogy) the Tea Parties.

On the other hand, it is probably the most important grass movement to come along in decades, certainly on the left. And it sure doesn’t have the Tea Parties wealthy donors helping to pull the string.

I think of the classic Malvina Reynolds protest song from the 1960s, “It Isn’t Nice”:

It isn’t nice to block the doorway,
It isn’t nice to go to jail,
There are nicer ways to do it,
But the nice ways always fail.
It isn’t nice, it isn’t nice,
You told us once, you told us twice,
But if that is Freedom’s price,
We don’t mind.

We have tried negotiations
And the three-man picket line,
Mr. Charlie didn’t see us
And he might as well be blind.
Now our new ways aren’t nice
When we deal with men of ice,
But if that is Freedom’s price,
We don’t mind.

Disruptive protest isn’t nice — that’s the whole point. But sometimes it’s necessary.

My guess is that Bernie Sanders and Black Lives Matter will get the choreography right before too long. There will be meetings. He will put out statements of support, maybe offer BLM time at rallies, maybe make some high profile speeches at grass roots civil rights gatherings.

Black Lives Matter will continue actions that occasionally disrupt campaign events of Sanders and others Democrats. But compared to the disruptive effect of Donald Trump on the Republican field, BLM is a picnic for Democrats.

This is a loutish billionaire with a titanic ego, and he reminds the broad public of what the Republicans really stand for. Unlike BLM, which is all about citizen energy, all the Donald has to do is write a check and he is in it for the long haul. That’s the Republican way.

Trump is the Republican Party’s worst nightmare. He speaks for the disaffected, rageful white males who think just the way he does; the people who listen to talk radio and don’t let facts get in the way… the faithful viewers of Fox. But whoops,Trump and Fox are now in a dogfight. Over a Fox questioner, Megyn Kelly (gotta love that gyn) turned feminist. Does it get any better?

Sen. Lindsey Graham was quoted in the Washington Post:

“I think we’ve crossed that Rubicon where his behavior becomes about us, not just him,” Graham said in an interview.

“Donald Trump is an out-of-control car driving through a crowd of Republicans, and somebody needs to get him out of the car,” Graham said. “I just don’t see a pathway forward for us in 2016 to win the White House if we don’t decisively deal with this.”

Yes, indeed. At first, political analysts thought Trump was a flash in the pan — that when he questioned Sen. John McCain’s military record, or preposterously claimed that was responsible for making immigration a national issue, or couldn’t decide whether he was a supporter of single-payer insurance or letting-’em-die in the free market, or insulted women as menstrual harridans, he would be toast.

But it’s now clear that no matter what Trump says, his support is likely to stay north of 20 percent in the polls because it isn’t the words that matter; it’s the anger. An NBC poll had Trump winning the Fox Republican debate with 23 percent support and the next highest contender (Ted Cruz!) second at 13, and Jeb Bush in sixth place with just 7 percent. Does it get any better?

These reverberations are almost too good to be true — Fox in a fight with its own hard core audience and its own facts-don’t-matter style; Fox suddenly becoming feminist; Trump reminding the country of what the larger Republican Party has come to represent; Trump sucking out all the oxygen so that rival candidates can’t gain traction against a surprisingly weak Jeb Bush. And, very likely, Trump eventually running as an independent.

Trump is a caricature of things that more mannered Republicans have been getting away with for years. He smokes out what the Republicans really stand for. No wonder they are worried. “An out of control car driving through a crowd of Republicans.”

Trump isn’t nice. Neither is Black Lives Matter. The Democrats should be grateful for the form of creative disruption being visited upon them.

Kindness and Art Trump Commerce

We were at Fringe Central, which is the building where performers who are registered with the Fringe can hang out. There’s wi-fi, a copy machine, café area, and helpful people who are in the same boat as you are (if you’re putting a show on this year).

We met a couple of very nice producers, who are putting up no less than three shows this year (color me impressed). Natalie and Patrick were cutting out stars to put on their posters and flyers. I asked them how they could have gotten reviewed so quickly, since most shows haven’t even opened yet. It turned out the stars were awarded from the Buxton Fringe. Stars are stars, and wherever they’re from, they look pretty darn nice stapled or taped to posters and flyers.

They had both been through numerous Fringes (Fringe veterans), and they offered us some helpful marketing suggestions. One of which was to check into the media office at Fringe Central. We made an appointment with a media specialist at Fringe Central, and met with Alan later that day, who was extremely nice and asked me a very important question. “Who have you sent your press release to?” An uncomfortable silence ensued as my face turned red. You see, we’d spent so much time constructing and designing the press release, that we (meaning I) hadn’t gotten around to sending it out to anyone.

Alan emailed me a list of media contacts, and our press release went out today. Better late than never I suppose.

I ran into Patrick, the aforementioned nice producer, on the street, and he offered Glenn and me free tickets to see one of his shows which opened today. I Am Beast. An original play featuring a life sized puppet, for adults. It opened at 3:20 P.M. at the Above space, in the Pleasance Courtyard. We had just gotten our own Macaroni on a Hotdog postcards and flyers delivered, and could have started advertising our show, but instead we opted to see I Am Beast. I enjoyed seeing a play where the heroine is a feisty young girl with a vivid imagination. Stories featuring women and girls are few and far between in the United States. There must be a law prohibiting female film executives. Perhaps it’s a little known directive of the Citizens United act?

We chose a low cost lunch option and ate in our room. We bought a small baguette from the Lidl grocery store on our block and some spreadable herbed cheese imported from France. One pound 59 pence total.

It’s hard to go wrong with bread and cheese. Supper was equally frugal. We ate at The Mosque Kitchen across the street. We love that place. Your choice of three curries and rice for 5 pounds. A large slice of garlic naan is 1 pound 50 pence and we split it between us, so that’s 3 pounds 25 pence each for supper. Yes, I know I sound like we’re living through the height of the depression or something. It’s what happens to me here. I revert to college type spending. . . especially regarding food. I suppose I figure if we cut corners here and there, we can justify the occasional splurge.

We fully intend to splurge. It’s just a matter of when, and on what. Most likely it will be food. Or perhaps real estate. I’d love to buy a venue.

After we ate supper, I donned a wedding dress, complete with veil. We walked up to the Royal Mile, advertising our show all the way there. A wedding gown commands a certain kind of respect, and we weren’t disappointed. Several “Congratulations!”, and “Where’s the groom?” accompanied our processional. I handed out several flyers, on the street and once on the Royal Mile, I positioned myself near the Fringe box office.

I was surprised that parents on the Royal Mile wanted me to take photos with their children. Even after they’d seen my flyer. My show photo features me in a wedding dress and veil with 5 hotdogs shoved in my mouth. The image is slightly disturbing, but it didn’t seem to bother the parents. I posed for quite a few photos, and would try to mention to the kids “Isn’t that a silly photo?”, but many of the families didn’t speak English.

It’s amazing how many languages we’ve heard. Just today, we’ve heard Serbian, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Russian, Korean and Spanish.

There was a street performer on the Royal Mile tonight, plying his trade while I handed out show cards. We’d seen him before, he’s very hardworking and good at what he does. He juggles machetes and fire, rides a unicycle and cracks a whip. I felt sorry for him when it started to rain. Rain makes street audiences melt away.

Truth be told. . . when it started raining, I also felt sorry for myself, since I was wearing a vintage acetate wedding gown. I ducked into a narrow passageway that looked exactly like a street Harry Potter would bolt down, trying to escape Voldemort. While I cowered in the close, Glenn asked at the Burgers and Beers restaurant, which was 2 doorways away, if I could use their restroom to change out of my wedding dress. They were obliging and I avoided a costume catastrophe.

Lesson learned. Anytime we flyer, always be prepared for rain, because here in Edinburgh, that is a definite probability.

Shots. Fired.

Trump’s bad sportsmanship knows no bounds. HuffPost Comedy captured some exclusive photographs (hmm, not sure why no one else got these) that show Trump oversharing personal information about the rest of the 2016 field. Take a look:

Here’s How Donald Trump Defended Questioning John McCain’s Military Record

AMES, Iowa – Donald Trump attempted to defend his controversial statements about  Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) during a news conference Saturday — but things got heated when he started bickering with reporters.  

The real estate mogul-turned-presidential-candidate took questions from reporters following his comments at the Family Leadership Summit in which he questioned whether Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) was a war hero

In a fiery exchange with reporters, Trump raised his voice, often interrupting before a full question was asked.  At one point, he even yelled at one journalist, telling him to “go back to being a pundit.” 

“If a person is captured, they’re a hero as far as I’m concerned,” Trump said. “But you have to do other things also. I don’t like the job John McCain is doing in the Senate. He’s not taking care of our veterans.”

Trump went back and forth with reporters, trying to clarify his statements, but the businessman kept giving different answers as if there was some confusion.

“I like the people who don’t get captured and you have many people who didn’t get captured, I respect them greatly,” he said.

When asked about his multiple student deferments and a medical deferment, which allowed him to avoid service, Trump said “millions of other people” took the same option.

“I was going to college and got student deferments,” Trump said to a swarm of media. “It’s a long time ago, student deferments and ultimately a medical deferment because of my feet. I had a bone spur.”

Trump even went on to say he “wasn’t a big fan” of the Vietnam War and had many friends that served and many that also had student deferments.

“I wasn’t a protester, but the Vietnam war was a disaster for our country. What did we get out of the war other than death,” Trump said.

When asked if he would apologize to the Arizona senator, Trump refused.

Ivanka Trump Brand Little Impacted by Firestorm from Father

STUMPED ON TRUMP: While most retailers continue to stand behind Ivanka Trump’s apparel and accessories brand despite the fallout from her father Donald’s controversial remarks on immigration, it appears that at least one chain is taking a wait-and-see approach. When reached for comment about the status of the Ivanka Trump brand at its store, Lord & Taylor replied that it had “no comment” as to whether it would continue stocking her label.
Lord & Taylor is the first retailer to not express unwavering support for Ivanka following “The Donald’s” blunder, which led many retailers, brands, and personalities to dump Mr. Trump — Macy’s included. At the time, however, Macy’s Inc. was quick to state that the status of Ivanka’s line in the store would not be affected by her father’s statements.
When reached for comment, Nordstrom also expressed solidarity with Ivanka. “These are Mr. Trump’s personal views and don’t necessarily reflect how others may feel, including us here at Nordstrom. We don’t carry any of Mr. Trump’s line, and have no plans to change our business with Ivanka,” said a company spokesperson.

Jon Stewart Slams Donald Trump Supporters For Defending ‘Mexican Rapists’ Comments

Donald Trump has found himself in the center of controversy since he first announced his bid for presidency, and Jon Stewart is having a field day.

On Thursday night’s show, “The Daily Show” host told viewers he wanted to thank one person “who’s been there really throughout this whole run, but specially near the end of the run.” That person was Trump.

“Donald recently glided back into my life on his solid gold up-and-down people mover, cranked up the unauthorized Neil Young, opened up his crazy hole, and promised me I would never be without material again,” Stewart told his viewers.

The focus of Stewart’s segment was a string of anti-immigrant remarks Trump made during his presidential announcement speech. You may remember hearing the Donald say: “They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Like many of us, Stewart was baffled by these comments, but even more so by the people who continued to defend them.

“The one good thing to come out of this is that the farce of his candidacy is finally exposed: his un-seriousness on display, for all people and voters to see! And the results will be obvious,” said Stewart, before showing that Trump is actually in second place among Republican voters in a national poll in three states flashed on screen.

“F–k me,” was all he could say.

Trump: The Best Golf Advice I Ever Received

Trump: The Best Golf Advice I Ever Received


The host and coproducer of the megahit reality show The Apprentice presents a unique collection of golf advice. From Palmer and Player, Mickelson and Vijay to Pat Boone, Stone Phillips, and even Yogi Berra, these players, teachers, businesspeople, and celebrities will help you play better and score lower. Everyone who plays golf has that little nugget of information they turn to on the course. But never before has such an array of golfing advice been pulled together in one place. Donald Trump, himself an avid-and very good-golfer, asked his friends, colleagues, and playing companions to offer thoughts on everything from the mental game to the swing to putting to playing golf the right way. And golfers being what they are, none could resist sharing words of wisdom. So here we find Vijay Singh telling us about playing simply: “You don’t need to get your golf swing by going through video cameras and stuff like that. Just kind of go out there and find yourself.” Baseball Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith talks about not overswinging: “Just learn to allow the club to do what it’s supposed to do. because the ball is sitting still.” Actor Michael Douglas has a specific routine to slow his tempo-he says his wife’s name, and doesn’t even think of starting to bring the club down until he gets to “Jones.” Taken together, these more than two hundred entries create a unique handbook, covering every aspect of the game-and ranging from the lighthearted to the deadly serious. Donald Trump’s book of advice is certain to take its place next to Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book as the ultimate in golf instruction. From the Hardcover edition.

Donald Trump Believes Chris Christie Will Move Past Scandals

SOMERSET, N.J. (AP) — Real estate developer Donald Trump told a group of New Jersey Republicans he expects New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to make it through the scandals that are plaguing his administration.

“He’s doing fine and it’s going to be fine,” Trump told the Somerset County Republican Organization, where he received the group’s “Republican of the Year” award Wednesday night. “We all go through these patches,” said Trump. “I wish him well.”

Trump said he has considered Christie a friend for many years. Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, owns a publishing company that runs a website devoted to New Jersey politics.

The 67-year-old Trump told The Associated Press he’s seen no evidence that Republican donors are shying away from the governor and possible 2016 presidential candidate.

He says Christie’s ability to run for president has not been compromised, if he decides he wants to run.

Trump, who flirted with running for president in 2012, told AP he would decide within a few weeks whether to enter the race for governor of New York.

On Wednesday, he was honored for his investment in New Jersey; Trump National Country Club is located in Somerset County.

Former New Jersey Attorney General and Christie confidante Jeff Chiesa also was honored by the group.

Referencing Christie’s budget address on Tuesday and town hall meeting on Wednesday, Chiesa said Christie is continuing to govern despite twin scandals that have mired the start of his second term and threaten to upend any political ambitions.

“He has been the target of incessant and unsubstantiated innuendo for six weeks now, and guess what,” said Chiesa, “he is continuing to lead the state with incredible integrity.”

Federal authorities and state lawmakers are looking into an apparent political payback operation orchestrated Christie’s aides; federal prosecutors are also investigating accusations that two members of Christie’s cabinet threatened to withhold federal Superstorm Sandy recovery aid from hard-hit Hoboken unless the mayor supported a favored redevelopment project.

The administration has denied the charges.

Chiesa, who was named by Christie to a temporary seat in the U.S. Senate last year, is a partner in Wolff & Samson, the law firm that represented the redeveloper in Hoboken. David Samson, the founding partner of the law firm, is chairman of the agency that runs the George Washington Bridge, where traffic jams were created in an apparent act of political retribution.
