On Sunday, May 7, the people of France annoyingly retained their traditional right to claim intellectual superiority over Americans, as millions of French citizens paused to enjoy just how much smarter they were than their allies across the Atlantic.
In bars and cafés across France, voters breathed a sigh of relief in the knowledge that arrogantly comparing themselves to the U.S. population, a longtime favorite pastime of the French people, would remain viable for the foreseeable future.
“It was no secret during the campaign that Drumpf was a narcissist and a demagogue who used fear and dishonesty to appeal to the worst in American voters. The Times called him unprepared and unsuited for the job he was seeking, and said his election would be a “catastrophe.”
The 2018 United States elections will mostly be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. These midterm elections will take place in the middle of Republican President Drumpf’s term.
All 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 34 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested. 39 state and territorial governorships and numerous other state and local elections will also be contested.
I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

Donald Trump, Loser-in-Chief Our next president cannot stand that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote – and America will suffer for it
Donald Trump lost the vote for president by well over two-and-a-half million votes and counting, and it’s driving him out of his mind. Because our odd electoral system gives more weight to voters in small, rural, mostly white states, the loser of this year’s popular vote will take the oath of office on January 20th.
‘The electoral college was actually put in place, in large part, to prevent someone like Donald Trump from becoming president. While Republicans have tried spinning Trump’s electoral college win as some sort of “mandate” or “statement from the American people” – it’s neither. Ignoring for a moment the fact that there are questions about voting irregularities in three key states that some think might have helped Trump win, when you get right down to it, there was no “massive wave of support” that propelled Trump to victory.
Even if you take just those three states in question (Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin), here are the rough estimates of Trump’s vote-count lead in each of those states:
Right there, If you flip those three states, Hillary Clinton’s our next president instead of Donald Trump.
Right now, Clinton leads in the overall popular vote by around 2.5 million votes – a lead that’s expected to reach anywhere between 3-4 million once all the votes are counted.
That would literally make Trump the biggest loser ever “elected” president in our nation’s history.
Essentially, he’ll become our next president because of pockets of angry voters in a handful of states who were stirred up into an irrational frenzy by a candidate who ran on a lot of policies that were unconstitutional.
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump break the 4th wall in ‘SNL’ cold open
Saturday Night Live took its last possible opportunity to skewer the election once more, bringing back Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and having Kate McKinnon reprise her role as Hillary Clinton.
The two took to a CNN talk show for perhaps one of the most uncomfortably real cold opens in recent memory.
Tackling everything from Clinton’s latest email debacle to Trump’s miraculous ability to sidestep controversy in a news cycle increasingly dominated by negative press for Clinton, the skit also managed to bring some legitimate surprises to the table.
“Don’t you guys hate feeling like this?” Baldwin says, breaking character.
The two soon make a break for it, departing from their skit and running through the streets of Times Square to the tune of Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up.”
Perhaps more important than making you life, cry, cringe, and want to run away, SNL wants you to vote.
“We can’t tell you who to vote for, but we all get to choose what kind of country we want to live in,” McKinnon concludes.
Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon Break Character to End the Election Vitriol on SNL
In its final cold open before Tuesday’s presidential election, Saturday Night Livebrought in veteran castmember Cecily Strongas CNN’s Erin Burnett to moderate a conversation between the two major party nominees.
What started as a regular cold open with Republican nominee Donald Trump portrayed by Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon‘s Hillary Clinton ended in unusual fashion: the two sketch actors breaking the fourth wall and addressing the crowd directly.
