We're not supposed to comment on female candidates' appearances, but Hillary's face was jammin', her body heck-a-slammin'—she had the presidential look, all right. 

Great moments from tonight's debate, which PPP found was won by Hillary (voters said so nationally to the tune of 51% to 40%, with women and African-Americans especially feeling Hillary won):

Flailin', Failin' Fallon: Super Deluxe Edit Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-09-23 at 1.15.30 PM(Video still via Super Deluxe)

This Super Deluxe remix of re-edit of the now-infamous Jimmy Fallon interview of Donald Trump beautifully communicates why so many progressives were grossed out by Fallon's fawning over Trump.

I don't know how he can live with himself considering the piss-poor, enabling job he did, but I love that Super Deluxe underscored his utter failure ...

Trump Campaign Chair In Ohio: I DON'T THINK THERE WAS ANY RACISM UNTIL OBAMA GOT ELECTED Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-09-22 at 10.35.49 AM(Video still via The Guardian)

This woman is so blindingly racist it's breathtaking. It's terrifying that adults capable of dressing themselves and making a living would say this stuff, but she literally believes President Obama created racism (It's almost like she says racism but means racial unrest?! And even that!) and that any black person in the past 50 years who hasn't had a successful life can't say it had anything to do with race.

REALLY? Does anyone believe that with white ladies like her running around in positions of power a black person would have an equal opportunity to work with/for her, let alone to be sold a house by her? (She's in realty, but not reality.)

Listen to her here.

She has resigned and apologized. How anyone could accept that apology considering how explicitly she explained herself is beyond me:

*widget boy cultureAndy Mientus reminds us that bisexuality exists:

 

Hey so it's #biweek- the week for the Bi kids to be visible. I try to be visible all the time just by being true to who I am openly, but I know many people struggle with this because of the stigma associated with bi-ness. I know that some of you, probably friends even, are reading this and rolling your eyes- "oh he's still holding on to that? Who is SHE kidding?"- and I don't blame you. Not many are open about it so we appear to be very rare creatures, maybe even mythical. I've definitely felt the pressure to just accept being lumped in as gay when I meet new people- correcting them feels super political and unnecessary in the moment but then later I realize that it's my own shame. I don't write this to position myself as an activist or a role model. I try to be the best person I can be always but I am just an actor, not a queer-studies professor, and I am learning along with everyone else. I have and will continue to put my foot in my mouth on issues so I won't pretend to know everything. What I do know is that because of my platform as an actor, kids reach out to me almost daily confused about their sexuality and it breaks my heart to learn that they are denying their hearts, bodies, and souls just because of what other people will think of them. We now talk about LGBT+ issues constantly but how often do we really consider the B in there? Have you ever doubted someone who tells you they are Bi- "Sure, Jan"- or debated the validity of that claim behind their back? Do you have a preconceived idea of what bi "really" looks like based on what TV and movies have told you? Do you think of it just as a sexual kink or as a true identity? When I encounter ignorance about my identity, I always try to approach it from a place of warmth and education, so this is not me lecturing the monosexuals out there. I'm inviting you this week to think about your own feelings towards bisexuals and ask yourself if there is any lingering doubt or prejudice there. If you think you could be bi, ask yourself what is holding you back from accepting it- is it your own developing feelings or your fear of society around you? Together, we can end that stigma. 🏳️‍🌈 📷: @lukefontana

Obama On Clinton: PERSONAL INSULT If Black Voters Don't Support Her Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-09-17 at 11.35.26 PM(Video still via CNN)

President Obama gave a fiery speech tonight at a Congressional Black Caucus event in which he offered yet another full-throated endorsement of his onetime rival, onetime employee Hillary Clinton:

If I hear anybody saying their vote does not matter, that it doesn't matter who we elect—read up on your history. It matters. We've got to get people to vote. I will consider it a personal insult—an insult to my legacy—if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. You want to give me a good send-off? Go vote.

That has to be his bluntest plea to date. He knows this election matters, and he knows that Hillary is not the lesser of two evils—but will Democratic voters get the message?

He also had sharp words for Donald Trump's assertion that there's never been a worse time to be black in America. Which, you know, duh:

He missed that whole civics lesson about slavery and Jim Crow.

At the same event, Hillary called out Trump's attempt to lay birtherism at her feet:

It’s not about golf course promotions or birth certificates. It comes down to who will fight for the forgotten. Who will invest in your children and who will really have your back in the White House. We need ideas, not insults, real plans to help struggling Americans, to help communities that have been left out and left behind. Not prejudice and paranoia. We can’t let Barack Obama’s legacy fall into the hands of someone who doesn’t understand that. Whose dangerous and divisive vision for our country will drag us backwards.
