Trump: If Clinton Hates Guns, Take Bodyguards’ Away and ‘Let’s See What Happens to Her’

From Mediaite:

Donald Trump tonight again went after Hillary Clinton on the subject of guns and saying she should disarm her bodyguards and see what happens.

He said that CLinton “wants to destroy the Second Amendment” and said, “She goes around with armed bodyguards like you have never seen before. I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons, they should disarm.”

Congressional Black Caucus Reacts to Trump’s Birther Walkback

They didn’t pull any punches:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Members of the Congressional Black Caucus on Friday called Donald Trump a “disgusting fraud” and demanded that he apologize to President Barack Obama for repeatedly challenging the first African-American president’s U.S. citizenship before retreating from the claim on Friday.

One by one, outraged members of the CBC denounced the Republican presidential nominee who for five years was the chief promoter of the false notion that Obama was born somewhere other than Hawaii. Trump said in a brief statement Friday morning that Obama was “born in the United States, period.”

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., called Trump a “two-bit racial arsonist” who has fanned the flames of bigotry and hatred. Rep. G.K. Butterfield, D-N.C., called Trump a “disgusting fraud” who had no proof of his false claims. Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., said Trump is a liar.

Question of the Day – Identity Theft

Have you ever had your identity stolen?

I use Credit Karma to keep tabs on my credit reports. (This is not a paid endorsement btw. But I’m extremely happy with them at the moment)

Today I got an alert saying that a new credit card account had been opened under my name. I immediately called Equifax to have a 90 day security freeze put on my name and then called the bank where the credit card was issued. The good news is that no charges had been made.(They said that the card was actually returned so it never made it to an actual address)

The bad news is that they opened it up with my social security number, name and date of birth. Fuck.

If you don’t check your credit report, take advantage of one of the tools to keep tabs. I learned about credit karma from reddit/r/finance a while ago. It’s free and they send you notifications when there is a change to your credit. I’m not happy that my social security number and some other info has been breached but now I can at least take proper precautions. But, shit.
