Betchocracy 2016: Cirque Du Trump


Last week, Donald Trump had a day-long visit to Washington that created a ridiculous amount of interest. He had several meetings with different important people, but the most intriguing was with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. Ryan has been, um, skeptical about Trump in the past, but after the meeting his tune had magically changed. He wasn’t ready to make an endorsement yet, but he said they had a constructive meeting, and Trump tweeted enthusiastically about it. At this point, it’s only a matter of time before it’s a big Republican love fest again.


Last weekend, the New York Times published a lengthy article detailing decades of inappropriate interactions that Donald Trump has had with dozens of women. None of us were really surprised, but to see so many women quoted directly was definitely a mic drop moment. The story was one of the most read NYT pieces ever. Only problem is, the people crazy enough to vote for Trump probably don’t give a shit at this point.


Hillary is so done with pretending to care about Bernie Sanders. In an interview this week, she said that there’s basically “no way” she won’t be the nominee. This is the most direct she’s been in trying to get Bernie to pull out, but it hasn’t worked yet. At this point, her main concern is whether she can get Bernie supporters to still vote for her in the general election. If not, she could be in trouble.


Oregon and Kentucky went to the polls this week, because apparently they couldn’t just do it in March like everyone else. Bernie won Oregon fairly easily, while Kentucky was incredibly close (Hillary won by a tiny bit). Say what you will about Bernie’s chances, but he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who’s going to drop out while he’s still winning states. Get ready Hillary, this shit’s going to June.


More amazing sh*t
