.@realDonaldTrump makes death threats because he's a pathetic coward who can’t handle the fact that he’s losing to a girl.

From the New York Times:
WILMINGTON, N.C. — Donald J. Trump on Tuesday appeared to raise the possibility that gun rights supporters could take matters into their own hands if Hillary Clinton is elected president and appoints judges who favor stricter gun control measures to the bench.
At a rally here, Mr. Trump warned that it would be “a horrible day” if Mrs. Clinton were elected and got to appoint a tiebreaking Supreme Court justice.
“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” Mr. Trump said, as the crowd began to boo. He quickly added: “Although the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know.”
Pokemon Go, everybody’s new favorite scapegoat:
FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (CBS/AP) — A fort destroyed in the Revolutionary War is again fending off attacks — this time from “Pokemon Go” players.
Caretakers of Fort Phoenix in Massachusetts say players of the popular smartphone game are damaging the historic site.
Gary Lavalette, volunteer caretaker at the fort in Fairhaven, near the Rhode Island state line, says people have been leaving trash, vandalizing historic structures and publicly urinating. He told WLNE-TV that a stone wall was taken apart with a crowbar and parts of the property look like a “minefield” because people are digging up the ground.
“This fort was never designed for this type of activity,” Lavalette told the station.
Lavalette said that some visitors were searching for “buried treasure” at the site because they didn’t understand its history.
Playing Pokemon Go doesn’t require digging, vandalizing or anything else for that matter. There always has to be an asshole who tries to ruin things for everybody but that’s a people problem, not a silly game. (Oh and I just reached level 20 without destroying a single fort.)
From Talking Points Memo:
Donald Trump responded to a letter signed by fifty national security experts and advisors who won’t vote for the GOP nominee by saying that he “hadn’t planned on using any of these people.”
“I wasn’t using any of them and they would have loved to have been involved with the campaign,” Trump said Tuesday morning in an interview on Fox Business, as reported by The Huffington Post. “Look at the terrible job they’ve done. I hadn’t planned on using any of these people.”
Listen to Trump for a day or two and you’ll bound to hear him back up one of his ridiculous claims by citing “Many people are saying…”
Here is the latest:
Many people are saying that the Iranians killed the scientist who helped the U.S. because of Hillary Clinton's hacked emails.

Twitter users know many people also. And many people have a lot to say:
