During the first of three  --  yes, three; stock those liquor cabinets now  --  presidential debates, Republican nominee Donald Trump proved himself to be quite the fiction writer. He pretended that his opponent, Hillary Clinton, created the birther conspiracy during her 2008 campaign. He lied about his ability to release his tax returns. He denied having ever claimed climate change was a hoax perpetuated by the Chinese.
But there's one thing Donald Trump did not make up during the debate: words.


...Yue is homeless. OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration. But it is true that she gave up permanent digs a couple of years ago. She carries her possessions with her on the back of a Vespa scooter.
She recently finished a six-book children's graphic novel series, "Guinea Pig, Pet Shop Private Eye," written by Colleen AF Venable. For that effort, she was nominated for an Eisner Award, the Newbery of the graphic world. She also completed the final artwork for Such a Little Mouse, a picture book by Alice Schertle.

Daily Dot: You may be getting trolled right now without even knowing it. Donald Trump supporters artificially manipulated the results of online polls to create a false narrative that the Republican nominee won the first presidential debate on Monday night. The efforts originated from users of the pro-Trump Reddit community r/The_Donald and 4chan messaged boards, which bombarded around 70 polls, including those launched by Time, Fortune, and CNBC. Polls that were not open to public voting consistently put Clinton ahead of Trump. In a flash poll by Public Policy Polling, Clinton led Trump 51 to 40. A CNN/ORC poll conducted immediately following the debate found significantly stronger support for Clinton, who topped Trump 62 to 27.

The 161st Bloomsburg Fair is in full swing out in lovely Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. If you went out there this weekend, you could have visited the Antique Farm Museum, seen a show featuring Bengal tigers, and ate all sorts of fried fair food. And you could have also purchased a Nazi flag.
