USA Today urges voters to oppose Trump

Donald J. Trump, Republican presidential candidate, has racked up zero newspaper endorsements to date. He is the first candidate in modern political history to have failed to garner a single newspaper endorsement. Earlier The Arizona Republic endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. The Republic has never endorsed a Democrat for president in its 126 year history.

Tomorrow’s edition of USA Today will advise its readers about whom they should vote. The USA Today editorial board for the first time is taking sides in a presidential race -- but it's not asking voters to back a specific candidate, but rather oppose Donald Trump.  The op-ed calls him "erratic," "ill-equipped to be commander in chief," and a "serial liar”.

Arizona Republic Newspaper Endorses Hillary Clinton

Since The Arizona Republic began publication in 1890, we have never endorsed a Democrat over a Republican for president. Never. This reflects a deep philosophical appreciation for conservative ideals and Republican principles.

This year is different.

The 2016 Republican candidate is not conservative and he is not qualified.

That’s why, for the first time in our history, The Arizona Republic will support a Democrat for president.

Prediction? That may be the last one-on-one debate he will do. Unless he feels he needs to change he lasting impression he has left with the general public tonight.

Ben Hur

Good film recycled from the days of epic movies. I loved Ben Hur and remember the chariot race scenes to this day. This version was good but I may have been expecting more--it wasn't "knock your socks off" great. 

Meg Whitman calls Trump 'dangerous demagogue,' says she's voting for Clinton

Meg Whitman, the president and CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, a onetime California gubernatorial candidate, and prominent GOP fundraiser, is supporting Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

"I will vote for Hillary, I will talk to my Republican friends about helping her, and I will donate to her campaign and try to raise money for her," she told The New York Times. Whitman said she does not agree with Clinton on every issue, but it's time for Republicans to "put country first before party."

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Funny Trump Joke

America's first cultural ambassador, NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, joked Donald Trump couldn't tell the difference between he and Michael Jordan (because both are black, bald, and former pro basketball players). This moment is from Abdul-Jabbar's speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
