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.

The Daily Word in Drake, Arnold Palmer and kids in jail

The Daily Word

Tonight is the presidential debate between nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. It should be quality entertainment, but it's unlikely the debate will actually change the outcome of the election.

The star pitcher for the Marlins, Jose Fernandez, was tragically killed in a boating accident over the weekend. He was 24.

Apparently, the form of the 'visual album' is the future of pop music. Earlier this morning, Drake released his Apple Music-exclusive short film Please Forgive Me, which provides visuals for several of the songs from his latest album Views.

Legendary golfer (and creator of the eponymous drink) Arnold Palmer died over the weekend. He was 87.

In Syracuse, NY, the Onondaga County Justice Center has come under fire for putting children in solitary confinement -- in the case of teenage Charnasha, for the crime of talking too loudly in public. This week, the New York Civil Liberties Union is filing suit against the Justice Center.
