    Somebody tried to assassinate trump.

    It was an illegal immigrant.
    He attempted to steal a gun from a nearby security officer.

    Unfortunately Trump is probably going to never ever shut up about it.

    what if it were a false flag

    what if they were really that stupid

    wouldn't that be something

    wouldn't that be amazing

    It would be amazing. like straight outta a fanfic kinda wonderful.

    I'm not ruling it out as a possibility. Somebody said months ago that this election feels like America's final season on AMC and the writers are just pulling out all the stops.

    A nice thing: people gave less money to Donald Trump in May than they gave to the Reading Rainbow kickstarter.

    This is a fair question basically any time Trump handles money. If Trump paid for a cab I'd wonder whether or not there was some Fraud involved on Trumps end.

    I was interested in knowing what populations of us citizens lived within cities with different amounts of populations,
    so I went to the American census bureau website.
    They have a tool called American FactFinder, that allows you to view tables of city populations.
    Unfortunately, they only allow downloads of this information 5000 cells at a time.
    So I spent the evening downloading table values of the incorporated cities with population between
    Over a Million Million - 100k 100k- 50k 50k-10k 10k-2k 2k and under (this was actually a bunch of small values I grouped).

    These tables I loaded into spreadsheets and put functions to show their sum.
    Unfortunately, the grand total of these values equaled only roughly 193,525,014 people
    leaving over +100,000,000 unaccounted for.

    I'm thinking the tables of cities I was downloading from, I must have selected from a list that didn't include all the us populations, but I'm not going to spend more time on it, after double checking everything multiple times already.

    Here's a pie chart of what I found. (though, it's probably a useless infographic considering how many people are missing).

    I love that someone like professionally took video of a criminal act (I might agree with it, but it is outright vandalism/destruction of property) posted it to the internet so everyone in the world could see their crime and no one gives a fuck. Fuck yeah dystopian cyber punk futures. Also that not one person there even thought to call the cops or report anything despite on video claiming to have witnessed it happening, because everyone in attendance just thought it was awesome. Also that chick was right, I did see the mute symbol on Trump's star a few days ago in my Facebook feed so that's fun.

    As a librarian I got specific training a while back on Fact Finder. There is a way to download larger amounts but I can not for the life of me remember how. Also it is irrelevant to you now so I'll shut up.

    actually what happens if for some reason a candidate get the nomination but doesn't last until the election?

    would the second-place candidate automatically become the nominee? does the convention have to meet again to select a new nominee?

    The second he started losing primaries he was spouting "You know I dont NEED to do this!"

    I think if this latest dip that really has him flustered doesnt turn around by convention he may actually bow out.

    Frisky dingo implies the Vp moves up and Id guess the party chooses a new vp though at that point they cant seriously expect to win

    Let's say it's September, so the RNC has met and selected Trump as the Republican Candidate.

    But them Trump unexpectedly needs an Emergency Toupee Transplant, which is serious enough that he can't keep running for President.

    Who represents the Republican Party in the election?
