Trump backers rally to call for ‘pitchforks and torches’

(AP)

If you watched the GOP convention, you may remember the performance by David Clarke, sheriff of Milwaukee County, in which he warned against the forces of anarchy that he saw rising around the country, and about the necessity of electing Donald Trump to restore law and order.

Sheriff Clarke took to Twitter this morning to issue a call to Trump supporters, a call that as you’ll see, many are apparently eager to follow. (The Storify version contains a slightly longer list of reactions from Trump backers.)

Who didn't see this one coming? 

Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law, has “informally approached one of the media industry’s top dealmakers about the prospect of setting up a Trump television network after the presidential election in November”, the Financial Times reported:

I can only imagine the skewering Trump will receive on SNL next week after he demanded the show be taken off the air. He is living up to Dictator Donnie.

@NativeAtlantan57 Republicans have no sense of humor, but provide so much humor to the rest of us, playing the straight guy.

Niiiiice!

Ohio Republican Party chairman Matt Borges has yet to announce that he will vote for Trump in the upcoming election, and according to The Cincinnati Enquirer, his wife refused to allow a Trump sign on their lawn.

@JamVet naive is not thinking the Russian mob government is not partnered up with the thug to fix this election and throwing a weak misdirection to weak minded people who listen to him.

Georgia Has Flipped To Hillary Clinton In New Stunning Electoral Map Projection

The latest YouGov election model contains some shocking news for Republicans as it currently projects that Georgia will flip to Hillary Clinton on Election Day.

The new YouGov model projects that Hillary Clinton will defeat Donald Trump 48%-42% in the popular vote, and will win the Electoral College 362-176.

Clinton is currently projected to break into the Republican South by winning North Carolina, Florida, and Georgia. Of the three states listed above, Georgia would be a big shock. Georgia has not gone Democratic in a presidential election since Bill Clinton won the state in 1992, but the combination of changing demographics and Donald Trump has opened the door for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The latest YouGov survey of Georgia reveals Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump 46.9%-44.4%. Trump leads with white voters 66%-23%, while Clinton leads Trump with black voters in 87%-8%.

@Kamchak I don't think it will happen in this cycle but I would love it if it did.  I think the 2020 cycle would have a better chance at going purple or even blue.

Since the election is over, have we officially decided how we will refer to Bill Clinton? First Gentleman? Cuz FGOTUS doesn't roll of the tongue the same way.

@ScubaSteve Well, in the "lords and ladies" sense, he could be "First Lord of the United States. 


Still FLOTUS. 


But, it stinks of royalty, so I'm against it. :)

It is likely that little KluxxerLee called to some black girl in Gwinnett a monkey and she beat the unholy racist snot out of him.

Thus his hatred of blacks, women and himself...

@JamVet I've encountered that type of racist a million times it seems.


15 years old, divorced parents, mom "spends a lot of nights out" and dad is disgruntled and spends a lot of time drinking and rambling about 'foreigners' and 'the blacks'.


If he knew better, he'd do better. Worthless parents produce worthless children.

Obama, Holder to lead post-Trump redistricting campaign:

The former attorney general heads up a new Democratic effort to challenge the GOP's supremacy in state legislatures and the U.S. House.

@gotalife I'd rather see it done by an independent group if that is even possible in this day and age.  Impartial, independent organization does all of the districts around the country so there is no gerrymandering by either side.  Let the best candidate win.

@StraightNoChaser @gadem @Lee30519 You let kids lash out...they eventually get tired. I will yank Trashy's chain a little more to expedite the process. Trashy thinks that they are in charge. I like to give Trashy a little hope and then snatch it away.

No matter how this turns out America needs to start fixing its problems, without use car politicians being involved. We need to get rid of banks and go to a more." at risk private system", that can't control and make guys rich, while some more honest and socially adjusted guy sits on the sideline not getting into the game. 


We need to go to direct capital instead of the SEC, which in neither case is helping America do anything it couldn't do better without them.
