Dammit, Donald Trump is Already Laying the Groundwork for a Recall

gq.com — You didn't think he'd go quietly, did you? On January 20, 1981, just moments after he was sworn in as our 40th president, Ronald Reagan stood on the Capitol's western front and offered a paean to the "orderly transfer of authority" that, for more than two centuries, has been a hallmark of the American democratic system.

Hillary Clinton's DNC had something for everyone - except working-class whites

gq.com — The DNC offered something for just about every American-except the blue-collar whites flocking to Trump If Lena Dunham and America Ferrera didn't do the trick, then maybe the Broadway stars singing "What the World Needs Now Is Love" would.

Donald Trump's Acceptance Speech Wasn't Bad, But It Was Still the Worst of the RNC

Ted Cruz Won't Endorse Trump Because He Wants All the Hate

gq.com — Cruz needs the hate. He feeds off of it. Bring it to him. Ted Cruz's will-he-or-won't-he speech on Wednesday night to Republicans was the most dramatic and electrifying moment at a political convention since Barack Obama's keynote address to the Democrats twelve years ago.

Will Ted Cruz Endorse Donald Trump at the RNC?
