Here are some highlights from this week in politics:

Donald Trump likes horrible people:

  1. Trump this week enlisted hired Steve Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News, and a right-wing media pundit who loves to argue to lead his campaign, because his camp doesn't have enough hot air swirling around it already.




  2. #SaysWho

    Donald Trump's lawyer is arguably more childish than he is:



Chefs for Hillary Needs Your Recipes

Hillary Clinton, long-time politician and food-eater, is enlisting chefs to create foods in her honor for a campaign called "Chefs for Hillary."




With current suggestions like, "Patriotic Penne Pie" and "Stars and Stripes Sugar Cookies," we think people can be a little more creative. How about we whip her up some "Criminal Justice Reform Meatloaf, "Labor and Workers' Rights Baked Potatoes," or "Small Business Tacos."

Bring em on, America.

We here at The Daily What LOOOVE a good conspiracy theory.

Today's fun features oft-hated political commentator, hero of the working class, and millionaire, Michael Moore, theorizing that the Donald was never an actual candidate for President, but was annoyed he wasn't being paid enough by NBC officials for his hit NBS TV shows, "The Apprentice" and "The Celebrity Apprentice," so he ran for office as a stunt to get better ratings and demand a higher paycheck.



According to Moore, Trump "cannot and WILL NOT suffer through being officially and legally declared a loser—LOSER!—on the night of November 8."

Moore continues that Trump "would rather invite the Clintons and the Obamas to his next wedding than have that scarlet letter L branded on his forehead seconds after the last polls have closed on that night."



So what do you think? Think Trump's in it for the money? Rumor has it he may drop out soon, so maybe he thinks he's got a giant TV paycheck coming?

These three dudes may or may not be involved in some plot that involves attacking President Obama's campaign headquarters in Chicago, as well as Rahm Emanuel's house, which -- given the state of today's political climate -- is a terrible idea.

With loose ties to the Occupy Movement, Jared Chase, Brent Betterly, and Brian Church were arrested a few days ago for allegedly planning a series of attacks in Chicago during today's NATO summit. Police found Molotov cocktails and cited their plans to attack banks, police stations, in addition to aforementioned political stations. The trio's lawyer, Michael Deutsch, says that they are the victims of an elaborate setup:

From what we've learned, we believe it is a setup — entrapment to the highest degree — and it is sensationalism by the police and the state to discredit the protesters who have come here to nonviolently protest.

Government setups aren't anything new, however, the dreadlock-Misfits shirt combo might make people doubtful of your innocence.

In his first two official rallies yesterday, President Obama stopped in Columbus, OH and Richmond, VA to discuss what he hopes to accomplish if he's reelected for a second term, as well as highlighting his accomplishments in revitalizing the American auto industry and ending the war in Iraq. Unlike Romney's comments about "borrowing money from your parents," Obama continued to discuss the realities of a crumbling middle class: "This is a make or break moment for the middle class, and we can't turn back now."

On his weekly address today, President Obama outlined some of his plans with a continued effort in Afghanistan, as well as how to bring the U.S. debt down to soften the currently economic climate. To wit:

Because of their bravery and dedication, the tide of war has turned in Afghanistan. The goal that I set - to defeat al Qaeda, and deny it a chance to rebuild - is within reach.

When addressing domestic plans, Obama said:

I've called on Congress to take the money we're no longer spending at war, use half of it to pay down our debt, and use the other half to rebuild America.

With summer on the horizon, the president's reelection bid will go into hyperdrive, with a rally today and stops in Seattle and Los Angeles.

Just as the news that George Zimmerman has been granted bail has hit, artist Michael D'Antuono's painting reflecting the killing is circulating online. Entitled A Tale of Two Hoodies, the picture not so subtilely hints at the fundamental issue of Trayvon Martin's death.

Late yesterday, the House Intelligence Committee released a discussion draft for CISPA. The draft attempts to clearly define what a cybersecurity threat would be, though one would speculate that the bill's origins probably come from a late-night screening of Live Free or Die Hard.
