Colleges around the country are facing an epidemic; an epidemic of Trump supporters, who are causing panic among the regressive left by scrawling chalk messages in support of Donald Trump around campuses.
The trend began at Atlanta's Emory University on March 21st, where a message entitled "TRUMP 2016" appeared in chalk on a campus sidewalk. Student immediately began protesting, telling campus officials that the pro-Trump messages made them feel "afraid" and "in pain."
Similar incidents occurred at the University of Kansas, where "TRUMP 2016" and "VOTE TRUMP 2016" chalk messages also appeared.
EXETER, N.H. Wise-cracking funnyman Al Franken yesterday body-slammed a demonstrator to the ground after the man tried to shout down Gov. Howard Dean.
The tussle left Franken's trademark thick-rim glasses broken, but he said he was not injured.
Franken who seemed in a state of shock and out of breath after the incident was helped back to his feet by several people who watched the tussle. Police arrived soon after.
"I got down low and took his legs out," said Franken afterwards.
Franken said he's not backing Dean but merely wanted to protect the right of people to speak freely. "I would have done it if he was a Dean supporter at a Kerry rally," he said.
"I'm neutral in this race but I'm for freedom of speech, which means people should be able to assemble and speak without being shouted down."
Ahead of the Illinois Democratic primary that is now just days away, Bernie Sanders has taken a quick moment to thank the mayor of that state's largest city for not endorsing his presidential campaign.
Under fire from large swaths of Chicago's residents for his regressive handling of city affairs -- including unrelenting attacks against the city's public schools and its teachers as well how he's handled cases of police violence -- Mayor Rahm Emanuel was offered gratitude by Sanders for endorsing his rival Hillary Clinton's campaign and not his own.
The former White House chief of staff for Barack Obama is so unpopular among his constituents that he has become a political pariah on the presidential campaign trail. That's particularly true for black voters in Chicago, who backed him in mayoral elections but are upset at the way he has handled police misconduct after several high-profile fatal shootings.
