Gawker wants to give Donald Trump a taste of his own medicine.

Not a month ago, Trump thought it would be a cute campaign idea to release the number of his competitor, Senator Lindsey Graham. The personal attack was only one in a string of outlandish stunts performed by Trump on his fiery campaign trail, but it resulted in an equally weird response from the senator.

Gawker decided to enter the ring in this bout of numbers Aug. 3. Somehow, presumably through their secure informant portal, they got a hold of Trump's digit and publicly shared them.

Since Trump, in his considered political judgment, has decided that opening up a direct, personal channel of communications between his supporters and his primary opponents is a noble campaign tactic, we think it's only fair and right that Republican primary voters be able to reach out to Trump himself. If it is the case—as Trump's release of Graham's number implicitly argues—that our political discourse improves when voters can ring up candidates on their private cell phones, then we are happy to add Trump's cell phone number to the body of public knowledge. You can reach Donald Trump at 917-756-8000.



So, you can with that what you will. You can tell him how you dress your cat up to look like him. Or you can thank him for the gift of his Twitter account.

To the democratic process!

Donald Trump has stolen a lot of the limelight in this early race for the presidency.

Between recent nonsense like giving out Lindsey Graham's cell phone number and his social media presence, it's been like the proverbial car wreck where you try to hide your eyes but can't look away.

Wouldn't you like to take it just one step further and know what it feels like to be the Donald himself? Sure you would.

That's why the good people at Funny or Die have created a board game that incredibly reflects what it must feel like to walk in Trump's shoes and feel that perfect hair blowing in the breeze.

Forget virtual reality, this promises a truly immersive experience.

It seems like only yesterday that Donald Trump gave out Sen. Lindsey Graham's actual phone number.

Oh wait. It was.

Well, Graham came back July 22 with this cloying video of him destroying a number of phones in answer to Trump's taunting, juvenile move.

The video says nothing about any issues, the campaign, justice, America, et al. Instead, it says everything about what we can look forward to over the next year and a half until the general election silences some of this attention-grabbing nonsense.

However, Graham's video just raises a really, really important question:

Does a 2016 Presidential candidate really still use a flip phone?

Trolling has never been much of a presidential campaign strategy. That is until Donald Trump entered the 2016 race.

After he got into some hot water over the weekend after saying that Senator John McCain wasn't a war hero because he was captured, Trump decided to dive even further into that hot water July 21. There has been a growing beef between Trump and former Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, another 2016 presidential contender. Trump took things a step further according to NBC news.

Appearing in the home state of South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who recently labeled Trump "a jackass," Trump claimed that Graham -- whom he called a "lightweight" and a "stiff" -- had once called him to ask for help secure appearances on FOX News.

Brandishing a piece of paper with a telephone number, Trump added: "So he gave me his number, and I found the card! I wrote the number down!"

"Let's give it a try," he suggested to the crowd, reading the number twice aloud to the audience.

Trump acknowledged that the number was several years old and might no longer be in service but added "I don't know, give it a shot."



Apparently, he got the number right.



You can watch the whole of the amazing speech right here:



What's even more, this tactic seems to be working for him. Trump has taken the lead in most national polls as the country prepares to ramp up for a very busy primary season starting next February.

Judging by those statistics, he's probably not going to change up his strategies any time soon.

As if Trump's Twitter account wasn't entertaining enough.

Following the announcement of Obama's victory last night, one of his most outspoken critics Donald Trump had an epic public breakdown on Twitter, laying down all the cliches in the amateur's guide to internet punditry (paraphrased):

  • Ugh, Electoral College sucks.
  • Democracy is dead to me.
  • Guys, let's start a revolution.
  • This country sucks now.

In a conspicuous attempt to divert the attention, Trump subsequently removed some of his tweets and even made room for a self-promo hashtag (#TrumpCares) to boast about sending relief supplies to Hurricane-damaged areas in New York, but Salon has published screen captures of the highlights for your enragement (shown left).

In which Wolf Blitzer, of all people, schools Donald Trump on the air over his position on birtherism. An excerpt:

WB: Donald, you're beginning to sound a little ridiculous, I have to tell you. DT: You are, Wolf. Let me tell you something, I think you sound ridiculous, and if you'd ask me a question and let me answer it. WB: Here's the question, did the conspiracy start in 1961 where the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and the Advertiser contemporaneously published announcements that he was born in Hawaii? DT: Many people put those announcements in because they wanted to get the benefit because of getting so-called born in this country. Many people did it. It was something done by many people even though they weren't born in the country. You know and I know it.

Trump hosts a fundraiser for Mitt Romney tonight in Las Vegas.
