  • Trump fights breaking out across college campuses

    Michael Straw, a senior at Penn State University, returned to campus this week, put on a crisp blue suit, and walked into a Trump buzzsaw. The president of the school’s chapter of College Republicans had a sense of what he was in for. Less than two weeks before, the group had announced in a Facebook post that they would not endorse Donald Trump after holding an online vote — a move that sparked outrage, including a call from the chairman of the Pennsylvania Federation of College Republicans for Straw to resign. Story Continued Below So when Straw gaveled in the chapter’s first meeting of the school year on Monday, it wasn’t altogether surprising that he was confronted by angry college Trump supporters

  • This text between a daughter and her mom about their cat is too relatable

    Forget the whole favorite child debate. Sometimes the most adored member of the family is actually the cat, which was recetly made clear to aptly named Jenny Katz. Jenny's mother feeds her 17-year-old cat Coco a little bit of ice cream before bed every night. Jenny tells Mashable that this routine started about a year ago after she moved out on her own. But Jenny topped off the last of the ice cream the other day, which means Coco was pissed and so was her mom Debbie.  SEE ALSO: 14 types of text everyone gets from their mom Image: jennmeowmeow Anyone who has ever had a popsicle will understand that it is no substitute for ice cream. Coco knows what's up.  Image: jennmeowmeow Clearly some cat parents out there found her mother's actions towards her cat pretty relatable. Knowing she messed up real bad, Jenny eventually delivered the favorite child Coco her French vanilla ice cream.  "They have such a funny relationship; it's almost as if she loves that cat more than she loves me," Jenny told Mashable in an email.  Regardless, Jenny describes Coco as the "sweetest cat you will ever meet," claiming that she used to be the cat's favorite before her mom stepped up the ice cream game.  "Coco used to love me more than anyone, but she probably loves my mom more now. Only for the ice cream," said Jenny.   [h/t:BuzzFeed]

  • Hillary Clinton’s health is sick

    In Hillary Clinton’s inner circle, it’s common knowledge that there are times she’s so low-energy that she blanks out for hours. When that happens, she is given to strange mental spells during which she has little or no control over what she says and does. She sometimes mutters things no one can understand. My colleagues in the mainstream media are covering all this up, but the time has come to speak out. We simply can’t elect a president subject to such mysterious health issues. What’s that you say? It’s nothing? It’s just that she . . . sleeps at night, like the rest of us. Oh. Ahem. Well, never mind that, then. There are plenty of other health problems to worry about. For instance, I hear

  • Fired Army general’s illicit sex life went beyond just an affair

    The Army general in charge of managing Russia’s incursion into Europe was fired from that job following an investigation that confirmed he had carried out an extramarital affair for over 10 years and led a “swinger lifestyle.” Maj. Gen. David Haight, who until May ran U.S. European Command, had an extramarital affair with a military contractor he met in Iraq in 2005. They regularly had sexual encounters and visited clubs and held parties with multiple partners and other couples, the investigation showed. Extramarital affairs violate military law, and such activity makes such a high-profile Army figure vulnerable to blackmail, presenting a significant security risk. Haight, who was a key adviser

  • Pence Recaptured After Fleeing Trump Campaign Bus

    VIRGINIA (The Borowitz Report)—Calling it a “scary moment” and a “close call,” Donald Trump’s campaign officials confirmed that they had recaptured Mike Pence after the Indiana governor attempted to flee the campaign bus in the early hours of Friday morning. According to the campaign, Pence had asked to stop at a McDonald’s in rural Virginia so that he could use the bathroom, but aides grew concerned when the governor failed to reappear after twenty minutes. After determining that Pence had given them the slip, Trump staffers fanned out across the Virginia backcountry, where the governor was believed to have fled. News that Pence had vanished touched off a panic in Indiana, where residents feared that he might return to resume his political career.

  • Man claims Birmingham dealership sold Porsche without permission

    A 67-year-old Bay City man filed a police report in Birmingham last week, claiming a local car dealer sold his 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo to a dealership in Ohio without his permission. The man told police he brought his Porsche into Auto Europe at 677 S. Eton Road for repairs and refurbishing approximately two years ago, and never got it back. He thought the vehicle was still at the dealer, but was informed it had been sold to Marshall Goldman Motors Sales in Warrensville Heights without his consent. On Friday, a spokesperson for Auto Europe claims the man is fabricating the story, and that he agreed to sell the car two years ago. The spokesperson said the case is now being handled as a civil dispute

A T-Mobile field engineer climbed up a cell tower and made a discovery that will give some people nightmares: a mass of snakes all coiled around each other and the tower equipment. T-Mobile posted the image to Twitter on Tuesday and challenged its followers to come up with some movie titles based on the photo. T-Mobile's suggestion is "Snakes on an Array." Twitter users did not disappoint. Potential film titles included "Tower Medusa," "High Power Coils," "Snakenado," "Towering Inserpento" and "Slithering Heights." While a lot of snakes tend

My older sister had been taking care of her but called nearly two years ago and proclaimed that Mom had to move in with us, as she could take no responsibility for her because she had her own life to live. Big Sis moved across the country to be with a man she met online — one in a long line of “soul mates.” She now hates this man but is scared to leave due to ruined credit, no job and nowhere to go.
