The Daily Word in "locker room talk," Hurricane Matthew, and the Standing Rock camp

The Daily Word

The second presidential debate of the year was last night. It was town hall-style debate, where voters were present to ask the two candidates questions. Today, the internet seems to have decided who won the debate after all: Ken Bone, the man in the red sweater.

Last week, some recordings of Trump making lewd comments about women were released, to nobody's surprise. Trump's running mate, Mike Pence, denounced these comments but said that he won't drop out of the campaign. He called getting tapped for the VP spot the "greatest honor" of his life.

Oh, and by the way -- professional athletes are pissed that Trump keeps defending/side-stepping his lewd statements by calling it "locker room talk." That's not how locker rooms work, my dude.

Fuck Columbus Day. Happy Indigenous People's Day.

The indigenous protectors camped at Sacred Stone in North Dakota protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline are now being watched and patrolled by the Morton County Sheriff's Office. The peaceful protestors have already met the brunt of North Dakota's private and state-funded security forces. If this doesn't look like exactly history repeating itself, I don't know what does.

The death toll in Haiti and the southeast US is climbing due to flooding from Hurricane Matthew. Urgent rescue efforts are underway in North Carolina, after severe flooding forced people to their rooftops.
