The moron behind #Twinks4Trump is hosting a pro-Trump art show in Williamsburg on Saturday


That’s right, the dipshit behind #Twinks4Trump, Lucian Wintrich, is hosting an event with an all-star cast of racists, dipshits, and sewer trolls including Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, Martin Shkreli, David Angelo, Francis Legge, James O’Keefe, the Godesky Brothers, Jon Proby, Sebastian Sommer and, perhaps, a real life Nazi or two. Sounds like a great reason to leave town. Ugh. When will this nightmare of an election be over?!

The opening for #DaddyWillSaveUs will be held at 191 North, 14th Street, Brooklyn, New York October 8th starting at 8pm ET.

Headlining speakers and contributors for the opening include outspoken gay conservative Milo Yiannopoulos and Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes. Additional contributors include Martin Shkreli, James O’Keefe, the Godesky Brothers, Jon Proby, Sebastian Sommer, and more!! [Read more…]

How did Greenpoint, Williamsburg and Bushwick vote?


Greenpoint loves Bernie (c/o NY Times)

Bernie Sanders had the largest support in the city from Greenpoint and Bushwick. Or as the NY Times obnoxiously puts it: “Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont fared best with young gentrifiers in Bushwick and Greenpoint.” South Williamsburg on the other hand loves Ted Cruz. See how the North Brooklyn voted below: [Read more…]

Video: Hold Me Closer, Bernie Sanders


Whether or not you like Bernie Sanders, this is pretty funny, and well, completely ridiculous:

A musician with Fox Cities roots is feeling the Bern all right.

So much so that Appleton native Mel Flannery and her husband, Danny Sher, who live together in New York, put their talents into “Hold Me Closer, Bernie Sanders,” a song that’s a Sanders-centric take on the Elton John classic “Tiny Dancer.” [Read more…]

Vampire Weekend played a huge rally for Sanders


First it was Killer Mike. Now Vampire Weekend is pledging their support to Sanders. Well, at least most of the band:

Because Vampire Weekend co-founder Rostam Batmanglij left the band earlier this week, Ezra Koenig is performing with a makeshift band, made up of Vampire Weekend drummer Chris Tomson, Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth, comedic duo the Lucas Bros, and the University of Iowa’s Hawkapellas—an all-female a cappella group. (“Bernie can call that Vampire Weekend if he likes,” he said.)
Prior to the rally, they performed at the Java House in Iowa City. Watch some clips from the event (including “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “This Land Is Your Land” sing-alongs)
