Everything you ever wanted to know about Trump, and a lot of things you maybe didn't

First, we need to talk about Barry Blitt’s Donald Trump Miss Universe Cover of the New Yorker this week.

If you wanna know How Donald Trump's Company Violated the United States Embargo Against Cuba, look no further than Kurt Eichenwald’s cover story in Newsweek. Gerry Doyle tweeted: “Hey, look, an *actual* illegal (and hypocritical) business dealing that will do nothing to hurt trump, because 2016.”

Over at the LA Times, we hear that employees at Trump's California golf course say he wanted to fire women who weren't pretty enough.  

In the Washington Post, J. Michael Diehl published I sold Trump $100,000 worth of pianos. Then he stiffed me.

There’s word of a former Philadelphia Inquirer reporter recalling that time Trump called her the c-word. To which Barry Petchesky said, “Donald Trump is every internet commenter.”

Thanks to Vanity Fair, we can all Revisit the Time Donald Trump Said Kim Kardashian Had “Gotten a Bit Large”. Which, woof. Asawin Suebsaeng tweeted what we were all thinking: “Wait for real.” While Sarah Jeong was a little more blunt about it: “Donald Trump is such a piece of shit.”

Ultimately, the Post breaks it all down with Donald Trump’s weight problem: He can’t stop talking about ‘fat’ people.

If all this Trump talk is getting you down, Nate Silver at 538 tweeted, “Clinton back above 60% in all of our forecasts now. Probably more bounce to come in next few days.”

Other people are running for president too


So remember how yesterday we told you that the Arizona Republic endorsed a Democratic presidential candidate for the first time EVER? Well, it turns out, they got death threats after endorsing Hillary Clinton, according to 12 News.

In other endorsement news: the Detroit News went Libertarian and wants Gary Johnson for president. Niraj Warikoo also points out, “For first time in its history, Detroit News doesn't endorse GOP nominee for Pres.”

But Gary Johnson actually had another self-described "Aleppo moment" when he couldn’t name a world leader he respects, according to the New York Times. Here’s the video. Of the incident, Gerry Doyle said, “Let's cut gov't spending by 40%, colonize other planets to fight climate change and forget *every* world leader."
