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!

CBS News reports that federal officials have notified authorities in New York, Texas, and Virginia about a possible, “low-level” terror threat for Election Day, Tuesday, November 8. These reports go on to say that polling stations may be targets for “lone-wolf” assailants.

It’s important to note that this threat came from unconfirmed, anonymous sources that officials are still investigating.

"Texans should go about their daily lives as usual,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “But remain vigilant over the next several days and report any suspicious activity.”

“We are doing everything we can to keep Virginians safe,” said Brian Coy, Communications Director to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. “We're confident they are going to be able to vote safely on Election Day.”

The FBI has yet to confirm or comment on the details of the report.
