    #4: HILARIOUS ANALYSIS FROM JOHN OLIVER

    Trump “the human equivalent of a clear plastic bag filled with cheeseburgers and Confederate flag belt buckles” spent the week making a visible effort to restrain himself: “Even Trump’s inner monologue has the tone of a serial killer stalking his prey in a food court.”
    .
    “This election hasn’t so much appealed to our better angels as it has groped our better angels, mocked their weight and called them 6s at best. We are at a point where [Donald Trump] has a real shot at the presidency, despite having blown up a political party, undermined confidence in our electoral system, declared open season on journalists, and unleashed a river of racism and misogyny. Also, and I feel like we’ve lost sight of this: he has really stupid hair.”

    #6: On Monday, the DOW rose 300 points with Hillary’s improved prospects, reversing some recent losses caused by “Trump fear.” Imagine the panic a Trump victory would cause. A mass stock market crash followed by a super recession or even another Great Depression.
    .
    Any chances of getting out of the whole would be compounded by president many Americans and almost all foreigners see as “crazy” and “totally incompetent.” Having the Prime Cause in the White House is a recovery blocker equivalent to Russians expecting that Vladimir Putin can get them out of the hole he dug for them.

  3. Breaking news 3:48 eastern time…………… Ohio counties that Obama won are down in turnout. Ohio counties that Romney won are up in turnout.
    .
    Bodes well for Trump.

  4. I think Trump will win NC. Republican counties didn’t have early voting. Large turnout of Trump supporters in rural and suburban areas.

  5. WOW!!!!!!
    .
    Trump can now work WITH Putin to take down Sunni terrorism. Trump can now put the despotic Arab dictators out of business.
    .
    I hung my flag in front of the house. It’s a great day for Americans and America
    .
    Nostrovia!
