Trump's Campaign Uses 'Frozen' to Defend Controversial Tweet and Hillary Can't Let It Go

One of Donald Trump's tweets recently came under fire for anti-Semitism when he used a six-pointed star to call Hillary the "most corrupt candidate ever." The graphic was switched to circle, but the story doesn't end there. On Wednesday evening, Trump came back with a picture of a 'Frozen' sticker book with a red six-pointed star on it. "Where is the outrage for this Disney book?" Did you have to ask, Donald Trump? Because you knew the Internet would respond. #Frozen

The Internet Rallies Behind #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner After Trump Surrogate Issues Immigration "Warning"

Marco Gutierrez, founder of Latinos for Trump, found himself at the center of the hashtag #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner after comments he made in an MSNBC on Thursday. The Trump surrogate warned of "taco trucks on every corner" as immigration remains unchecked and the internet (or anyone who can appreciate a good taco truck) can't find anything wrong with the idea.

Trump's "Ask the Gays" Remark on Wednesday Incited All the Rage on Twitter

Donald Trump is catching a lot of heat on Twitter for his speech at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta on Wednesday. During the speech, Trump told anyone who doubted his LGBT friendliness to 'ask the gays'.. Well, the LGBT community responded. "Ask the gays what they think and what they do, in, not only Saudi Arabia, but many of these countries, and then you tell me – who's your friend, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?"

These People Are Determined to Get Half An Onion More Followers on Twitter Than The Real Donald Trump

Leave it to 2017 to take it a step further from the days of 2016 when flocks of folks turned up at voting stalls to send their nominations in for Harambe. Yes, that happened, but apparently that wasn't enough. We need to dive deeper down the shit-coated rabbit's hole, and find a way make sure we give an onion the proper podium to express its multi-layered beliefs from. The kind of mass media movement that can bring hot tears to your eyes, huh?

From “the Closet Summit” to “Birdie Sanders,” the 2016 election was the never-ending nightmare that seems like it never ended. But it’s still worth a closer look, especially when Marco Rubio made allegations about not being able to trust people with small hands (among other things about small hands — man, 2016 really was awful).

Anyway, Seth Meyers recapped it all in his “Closer Look” segment. 12 months of horror in eight minutes of comedy. There are all those great things you forgot about, especially this:

Maybe it wasn’t all bad. Wait, yes, it was.

Olympics commentary finally was worth watching this weekend, when a Bachelorette party crashed the BBC's coverage


The bride, Maria, refused to end her 15 Minutes of Fame, but paid back the favor by giving the network some free publicity by having her party chant "BBC! BBC!" for the cameras...




The commentator, Scott Bryan, didn't seem to mind...



...and even followed up with her the next day



The cutie finally ended her brief guest starring role by signing off with the "call me" sign....




Here's to hoping her husband doesn't mind her public lack of marital commitment.

It's a war of the words here folks, and we're not sure yet whether Donald Trump is the alien race hellbent on intergalactic domination; or if he's just Tom Cruise trying to conquer another impossible mission.

The latest installment in the 'Say What Now?! Trump' series that inevitably sets the media ablaze in fiery fits of outrage centers on a limited edition, entirely provocative, mindless tweet from Donald Trump.

Political Fail of The Day: Ben Carson Doesn't Want Refugees in America, Can't Even Draw a Proper Map

  • -

GOP presidential candidate and literal 24/7 sleepwalking man Ben Carson really doesn't want Syrian refugees to be allowed in the United States.

Unfortunately, he can't even draw a map of the country he wants to deny them access to (and be leader of).

His campaign tweeted out a message of support for the dozens of governors who have expressed concern over allowing Syrian refugees into the country following the terrorist attacks in Paris.

From The Washington Post:

As you can see, in Carson's map the states of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine are moved northeast by about 150 miles or so. Vermont and New York now have hundreds of miles of new beachfront property. Massachusetts shares a border with Canada. Maine straddles what is now the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

Also, if you look closely at the mid-Atlantic area, you'll see that Virginia's portion of the Delmarva Peninsula is colored red to match Maryland, rather than gray with the rest of Virginia.

Nice job, Ben!

This is it. We've reached peak "War on Christmas," and it isn't even December.

GOP presidential contender and deflated kickball Donald Trump is suggesting that people boycott Starbucks because of the recent controversy over their new snowflake-less Christmas coffee cups.

You see, this year Starbucks opted for a plain red coffee cup instead of a design that featured snowflakes and Christmas trees.

Some Christians are mad about this, and have started telling baristas that their name is "Merry Christmas" to force the employee to say it out loud.

Sensing some way to inject his personal brand of horrible into the conversation, Trump called for a boycott of the company at a recent rally.

"Did you read about Starbucks? No more Merry Christmas on Starbucks. No more. I wouldn't buy. Hey, look! I'm speaking against myself. I have one of the most successful Starbucks in Tump Tower. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks—I don't know."

Merry Christmas and happy election cycle!

Politics of The Day: Presidential Candidate Ben Carson Release Cringe-Worthy Rap Ad

Ben Carson is a neurosurgeon and a frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination.

He is also a rap legend.

The soft-spoken politico has released a new 60-second radio advertisement that is laid over a pretty dope rap. The $150,000 radio ad buy, called "Freedom," will air for two weeks.

The ad used rapper Aspiring Mogul and is intended to target black youth.

"Reaching them on a level they appreciate and follow and see if we can attract their consciousness about the election," Carson campaign spokesman Doug Watts told ABC News.

"They need to get involved and express their voice through their vote."

Of course, this is also the dude that doesn't believe in evolution and says prison makes people gay ...so...

Fun fact: Hillary Clinton's campaign is powered by pizza and anal.

At least that is what some Twitter users saw when they logged onto the platform via the mobile app yesterday and saw her campaign's unfortunate tweet.

The original tweet, viewed on desktop, is harmless enough.

But when viewed on mobile, things get rather saucy.

People noticed immediately. And they wouldn't let Hillz forget about it.

Hey, girl. Wanna come over for some pizza and anal?

The third GOP presidential debate is tonight, and once again the candidates will face off on issues ranging from gun control and abortion to the economy and job creation.

Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, Chris Christie, and John Kasic will participate in the debate.

While there are stark differences between the GOP and Democratic politicians running for the highest office, are normal Americans really that different?

Cut produced the video above where they had 60 Democrats and 60 Republicans answer different questions.

The results were pretty amazing.

Should children born in the US to undocumented immigrants be deported?

Would Donald Trump make a good president?

The blue shirts (Democrats) and red shirts (Republicans) were mixed on a lot of the answers.

We aren't so different, after all!

Catch the GOP debate on CNBC tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.

Trump of The Day: The Donald Says Life Hasn't Been Easy For Him, Dad Gave Him 'Small' Loan of $1 Million

Life has not been easy for Donald Trump.

He wants you to know this. He also just gave his opponents the most perfect political attack ad ever created.

During an interview on the Today Show, the billionaire and Republican presidential frontrunner lamented at how difficult building his business had been.

"It has not been easy for me," he said. "I started off in Brooklyn. My father gave me a small loan of $1 million, and I came into Manhattan."

Just a small loan of $1 million. How can anyone expect to succeed with such a small loan?!

But Trump persevered, you see.
