O’Reilly Presses Trump: Are You Ready to Actually Give Specifics?

bill trumpBill O’Reilly spoke with Donald Trump tonight and pressed him a little on whether he’s actually ready to provide specifics about the issues he’s been talking about for weeks. O’Reilly brought up Trump’s constant refrain that he would build a wall on the Mexican border and would make Mexico pay for it. O’Reilly told him that’s just not going to work, and said he’s gonna have to be specific about why it will. Trump went off on Mexico with his usual talking points, but O’Reilly told him he’s said that before and wanted to hear specifics. Trump ended up telling him, “I’m gonna say, ‘Mexico, guess what? This is not gonna continue.'” He said he really wants to talk about policy during the debate and get away from the personal attacks. But, Trump added, that won’t stop him from highlighting the others’ “deficiencies.” Watch the video below, via Continue reading "O’Reilly Presses Trump: Are You Ready to Actually Give Specifics?"

Ted Cruz’s Website Accidentally Links to Gigantic Ass Picture

Ted Cruz‘s anti-Iran deal website accidentally links to a Twitter account featuring a picture of a giant ass, and it isn’t Donald Trump. StopTheIranDeal.com features a list of the email, Twitter, and phone numbers of every U.S. Senator for concerned citizens to contact. But Cruz’s site didn’t link to the Twitter account for Washington Senator Maria Cantwell, @SenatorCantwell. Instead, it linked to @CantwellPress, a Twitter account whose description reads, “This open twitter account for your most wanted porn material film star.” The cover image for the account is, well, a giant ass.
