Bun B is a Houston-based MC, activist, and Rice University lecturer, who makes up one half of the legendary rap duo U.G.K. that’s credited with pioneering the sound of Southern hip hop. He’s also VICE’s newest political correspondent, covering the garish and unpredictable rockfight that is the 2016 presidential race. 

This week, we sent him to join the traveling circus in South Carolina, where Donald Trump is expected to win the Republican primary on Saturday. For a two days, he immersed himself in the state’s red-meat brand of conservative politics, talking to the Tea Partiers, Trump supporters, and GOP presidential candidates to find out what’s really going on in the lead up to the first Southern primary vote of 2016.

Veterans' charities reportedly receive fraction of money raised by Trump event

 

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/04/08/veterans-charities-reportedly-receive-fraction-money-raised-by-trump-event.html?intcmp=hpbt1

More than two months after Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump claimed to have raised $6 million for veterans' charities at a fundraiser held on the eve of the Iowa caucuses, most of the organizations targeted to receive the money have gotten less than half of that amount.

The Wall Street Journal, citing a survey of the 22 groups listed by Trump's campaign as prospective recipients for the money, reported that 19 organizations had obtained a total of $2.4 million from Trump's foundation or associates. 

Of the three other charities, one declined to disclose how much it had received, another said it needed to submit more paperwork before receiving any money, and the third didn't respond to questions by the Journal.

ya know the more i follow this election i've come to realize that my decision about who i will vote for is based on who will shake up things more for the political system we have in place and of course that guy is bernie. the thing is that he wont be able to do anything with a republican congress but i'm still supporting him because i'll support anyone who will disrupt the status quo.

you can be supported by the average people and still win. you dont have to be a christian to win the presidency and we'll have a president up there who will constantly remind the country of how much money in politics has tainted the political process. his influence would be great for our country going forward. i see the president as a figure head anyways who doesnt have the power to do much without congress keeping him or her in check. i doubt bernie will be able to take his socialism ideas too far even if the congress is democrat dominated. they wont allow it.

 

now bernie wont win, i know that i guess :laughga: 

when it comes to the two other candidates i just dont like them plain and simple. hillary is fake and will say whatever it takes to look good and get votes. donald is the same way but he is more appealing to the uneducated section of the country(me :laughga: ) and saying what they want to hear. dumb people want to hear themselves so hes saying dumb ****. who i want to win between these candidates really comes down to who's supporters do i want to see in pain the most? 

who i want to see in pain and upset the most is the same way i decide who i want to win a football game i dont care about :laughga: , who's fans will whine and cry the most? thats what i want to see. this is determined by who's supporters i interact or listen to the most. since i've cut back on the fox news in the morning i've become less annoyed by them. i havent taken a break from GGD tho and i see lots of SJW sensitive liberals on here so i would much enjoy watching their little bleeding hearts shatter into a million pieces :nick: . go trump go lmao

i'll soon go back to watching fox news again tho and be back in "anybody but trump" mode again :laughga: 

i'm a **** human i know :neyde: 

 

oh and one other thing. people keep saying that donald trump wouldnt be influenced by money or bribes and such and i'm like what do you think donald trump becomes president and all of a sudden doesnt love money anymore? :deadbanana: . hes rich for a reason. hes a good businessman and a good businessman doesnt just turn down a good deal. if he gets bribed to do something while he's in office do you really think he wouldnt look at that bribe as just another good business deal? you have to be ****ing crazy imo to think that president donald trump would be any different than businessman donald trump. donald trump is donald trump :emma: he'd cut health care for his own grandmother if it meant his pockets get fatter

NEW YORK - U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders addressed the affordable housing crisis in New York and across the nation Sunday after he toured the New York City Housing Authority’s Howard Houses in Brooklyn’s Brownsville neighborhood.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and New York City Council Members Jumaane Williams of Brooklyn and Ritchie Torres of the Bronx accompanied Sanders on a walking tour of the low-income public housing buildings.

“This is the wealthiest country in the history of the world. People should not be forced to live in dilapidated housing,” Sanders said afterward.

Public housing residents in New York are forced to live with leaky roofs, mold, unreliable heating systems, broken elevators and vermin. The authority provides housing for some 400,000 New Yorkers, but there is a $17 billion backlog in unmet capital needs.

Sanders released a plan to address the crisis of affordable housing in America and create millions of good-paying jobs. As president, Sanders would expand the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund – which was created by legislation he authored in 2001 – to repair public housing, increase funding for housing vouchers and make it easier to refinance mortgages.

From the time Sanders was elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont, in 1981, he has made affordable housing a top priority. Then-Mayor Sanders created the first municipally-funded housing trust in the nation, whichcontinues to create home ownership opportunities for families who had been shut out of the market.

Sanders stopped in Brownsville after he attended a church service at the First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem and before a Sunday afternoon rally at Prospect Park in Brooklyn in advance of Tuesday’s Democratic Party presidential primary.

hillary seems to have this nervous tick. she laughs after every time someone asks her a question about an attack from other candidates. its a way to hide her real feelings about whatever question is being asked which comes off disingenuous 

I disapprove of what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it.

It's to give her time to think of a proper response.

one thing about these general election debates is the audience. the audience should be split between dems and republicans right? donald has been exclusively speaking in front of republicans so when he hays some radical crazy ****, the whole building goes nuts for him. 

when a person watches another person speak and hears a roar of approval from other people it validates what was said and helps you accept what they said as something intelligent or true. its like social conditioning where everyone seems to be on board so you just go along without asking many questions because its fun to do so and feel a part of the movement. but when that applause is gone what will you really think?

 

its like when you watch a sitcom with laugh tracks. i used to watch sitcoms and laugh along with the laugh track but then i got older and realized the jokes were pretty basic. i went online to listen to sitcoms without laugh tracks and the contrast is striking. every joke is said in silence and its incredibly unfunny and uncomfortable to view. in the general donald's applause will be half boos or maybe even just silence. the Donald Trump laugh track will be gone and along with it his power of influence in these debates.
