President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to make America as safe as it can possibly be. However, after a week of transition, Trump and his team have failed to make mention of White Men, which are, statistically speaking, “the greatest threat to domestic security for all American Citizens.”

So that’s why Candace Thompson created the White Male Registry as means of monitoring this underreported threat and pointing out the obvious hypocrisy and prejudice of a Muslim registry, which the president-elect and his team have been floating around for, oh, the past year.&nbsp;</p>

In a recent Facebook post, Thompson explained why she created the registry:

“In America 57% of reported rapes and 64% of mass shootings were committed by white men," she writes. "45% of all serial killers are white men. 1 in 3 women will experience some form of domestic violence during their lifetime, and 97% of those domestic violence perpetrators were men.”

“Forget the nation of Islam, our most immediate threat to domestic security is and always has been white, straight men.”

Read the whole post here:

In addition to asking White Men to volunteer and do their civic duty for the country, Thompson also vowed to register “every white man in Washington one by one,” in addition to sending them a message about the registry.

Check out all All White Men to register — it is your duty.

We here at The Daily What strive to give you, our loyal, intelligent, personable, and, might I add, very good looking readership, your daily does of “hold the phone!” But sometimes that requires choosing one story over another. Now that doesn’t mean that one is more important than the other, it just means that one was more important than the other. I kid. We just didn’t get to it.

These two 'nasty women' have made a promise that's going to be pretty hard to keep following election day. 



For one thing, commenters have pointed out that an actual exchange of votes for BJs is very illegal (not to mention difficult to verify). 



Another unintended consequence of this video is the slew of terrible comments. With the exception of Jeff here...



...most of the commenters were unappreciative of the offer.

Following a delightful song and dance number between Late Show-host Stephen Colbert and an innocent ragamuffin, the mayor of Candytown himself, Jon Stewart, dropped in to offer the audience some “toffee from an old man’s pants.” But upon learning that Donald Trump is running for president, Stewart, who’s a little out of the loop these days, gave his patented spit-take salute in surprise. Time to get back to work… after a little Yentl, for which there is always time.

Hamilton's Javier Muñoz, an astronaut, a crossing guard, and, of course, an adorable orphan joined other classic symbols of Americana, Colbert, and Stewart on stage to remind the audience to get out and vote. Make this old man’s wish come true, America. 

And now, what we’ve all been waiting for, gifs of people doing spit takes!
