‘Troll Trump’ Gives Money To Clinton Every Time Trump Tweets

It’s called ‘Troll Trump’ for a reason.

When in the heat of battle, a true Jujitsu master uses her attacker’s energy against himself in order to gain a competitive advantage. It appears like the Hillary Clinton campaign is doing just that by using Donald Trump’s Twitter game against him. The Clinton campaign has just released a new fundraising tool called “Troll Trump” where supporters can pledge to donate money every time Trump tweets.


The signup also comes with a message to the Republican Party nominee.

“Hey Donald,

I pledge to donate ____ to Hillary’s campaign every time you tweet because I’m sick and tired of your hateful comments about the American people.

Happy tweeting!”

Don’t worry about going broke if Trump goes on a 3 a.m. tirade against a former Miss Universe or an old contestant on The Apprentice, you can set daily donation limits. But those who sign up should plan accordingly, according to Twitter Counter, Trump has tweeted 499 times over the past 30 days with an average of 16.6 tweets per day. The idea for the campaign is believed to have come from former Buzzfeed editor, Matt Bellassai, who once joked he was going to donate to the Clinton campaign every time Trump sent out a tweet.

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
