Fusfoo Five: Politics (Taxes, 2nd Debate, Ken Bone)

5. KENNETH BONE'S SWEATER STEALS THE STAGE

Though Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump was billed as the main attraction at the second 2016 Presidential debate, it was Belleville, Illinois native Kenneth Bone who ended up grabbing the viral headlines. During the town hall style debate, Bone’s honest question about job-friendly, renewable energy, asked in a considerate manner, served as a strong counterpoint to the debate’s early personal attacks and insults. The real draw though was his bright red zip-up sweater and mustache, which turned Bone into an immediate internet and meme sensation. Kenneth later admitted that the red wool sweater wasn’t even his first outfit choice—after accidentally splitting the pants of the olive suit he planned to wear, the sweater was a last-minute substitution.

4. PAUL RYAN DONE DEFENDING TRUMP

After condemning the lewd remarks made by Donald Trump on a recently leaked tape, but stopping just short of withdrawing support from Trump’s campaign, House Speaker and Republican party statesman Paul Ryan has finally had enough. Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong has announced the Speaker will no longer campaign for Trump, and instead will spend the next month furthering a new party goal—ensuring Democrats don’t take control of Congress. Ryan’s move seems to confirm rumors that after the recent tape leak, top Republicans have begun to silently concede the Presidential election to Democrat Hillary Clinton. Seeing that House Speakers are traditionally among the strongest supporters of their party’s candidate, Ryan’s move is a true political rarity.

3. WARREN BUFFET SHARES HIS TAXES

During the recent town hall Presidential Debate, when questioned about taking advantage of tax loopholes that may have excused him from paying income taxes for up to 19 years, Donald Trump dodged and countered, suggesting that fellow billionaire Warren Buffett had done the same. In response, Buffett, who is the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway and ranks third on the Forbes Top 400 wealthiest list, shared his own tax details, revealing that his 2015 charitable deductions totaled more than $2.9 billion dollars. Essentially, this means that last year, Buffet gave away an amount equal to 75% of Donald Trump’s entire net worth. Trump has long been under fire for refusing to release his income tax details (as Presidential candidates typically do), but maintains he will do so when a “routine audit” currently being performed by the IRS is finished.

2. WIKILEAKS NEWEST RELEASE MAKES TROUBLE FOR HILLARY

Wikileaks, the controversial free-press website famous for leaking classified emails sent illegally from Hillary Clinton’s personal server, has struck again. Their latest Hillary release includes thousands of pages of communication between Clinton campaign director John D. Podesta and outside donors looking to sway Clinton into supporting their agendas. Other Podesta emails contain excerpts of speeches Clinton delivered to wealthy Wall Street execs in which she praises “open trade and open borders”, a stance she has denied every taking. Clinton’s campaign has yet to argue the authenticity of the emails and to date has refused to comment specifically.

1. LATEST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE LEAVES DECORUM AT THE DOOR

In round two of what has felt more like a verbal boxing match than a Presidential debate series, non-policy subject matter continued to dominate the stage. After opening without the customary handshake, the personal attacks began—Trump called Clinton “the devil”, accused her of having “tremendous hate in her heart”, and promised to “jail” her should he be elected. Clinton poked fun at Donald Trump for his campaign “exploding”, then questioned his “fitness to serve”. When asked about his recently leaked lewd interview tape, Trump changed the subject to previous allegations of sexual misconduct filed against Hillary’s husband Bill Clinton, then announced that four of Bill’s accusers were in attendance. Hillary ignored the comments and demanded that Trump provide “the president an apology and our country an apology”. The third and final Presidential debate takes place at the University of Nevada Las Vegas on Wednesday, October 19th at 9 p.m. ET.
