The Young Turks Are Crowd-Funding Their New Studio

The long and winding road continues for a program that began in 2002 as Sirius XM’s first original talk show.

The Young Turks, back to online-only, have moved from their Culver City Current digs to a corner of the massive YouTube Space LA. But the plan is to soon occupy a new studio, co-funded by $250,000 in Indiegogo donations.

Dumb Tweet | Trump is Back | Fill Your Heart

PRNewser: A study finds that most brands still don’t use social media to deal with crisis communications. One exec said of the social media lockdown, “Makes sense, I’d probably end up tweeting a pic of my butt anyway.”

FishbowlDC: Donald Trump is sending handwritten letters to journalists because he has been out of the news for like two weeks.

AllFacebook: Twitter users have been able to purchase fake followers for awhile, but now people with low self-esteem can buy Instagram followers too.

Daily Caller Celebrates ‘Hottest Blacks’

Remember that great line Seth Meyers dropped a few years ago about Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents Dinner? You know, the one about “unless the Blacks are a family of white people…”?

Well, this week’s Daily Caller slide show is the Web equivalent of that joke. Behind the cheeky headline “Top 10: Hottest Blacks” and even cheekier intro, there is a gallery… of white people.

Australian actress Pippe Black, Canadian-born media mogul Conrad Black (pictured)… Well, you get get the idea.

The Daily Caller offering is, perhaps less intentionally, a welcome send-up of the inanity of most Web slide shows. And just in case these ten color-blind pics are not enough to satiate, they’ve also got a “Top 10: Hottest Whites” companion slide show. Beginning, of course, with Barry.

In Effort to Finally Destroy Themselves, Republicans Ask Trump to Run for President

Either Republicans hate themselves, or Donald Trump is an attention whore. Perhaps it’s both! Because according to The New York Post, Republicans are getting excited about Trump possibly running for president in 2016.

“Everybody tells me, ‘Please run for president. Please run for president,” Trump told Republicans at an event. “I would be much happier if a great and competent person came along. I’d be happy if President Obama did a great job. I’m a Republican, but before anything, I love this country. I would love to see somebody come in who is going to be great.”

Trump’s desire for a president who is going to be great automatically rules him out, but apparently no one has told him that. He has already spent $1 million researching a run at the country’s top spot.

We’re sure Republicans know what they’re doing, but look, if you know one, give them a hug. Look that conservative in the eyes and ask them how they’re doing. It might help them. Sometimes just knowing someone cares is all it takes to stop spiraling.

Donald Trump Continues to Bash New York

It’s Friday, so why not discuss a moron? A little over a month ago Donald Trump ranted that New York was “boring” and “will die in the near future” and now he’s back at it again. Only this time, he added New York columnist Jonathan Chait to his list.

The problem here (well, one of the problems) is that to be a hack, you sort of have to be literate. But hey, it was a nice try.

Donald Trump Blasts New York in Twitter Rant

Let the record show that if you publish slightly critical commentary about Donald Trump, he will blast back on Twitter and it will be fun for everyone involved. When New York’s Daily Intelligencer posted about Trump’s appearance on David Letterman, Trump responded by firing off a series of hilarious tweets. Here they are, for our enjoyment.

A vague insult followed by an odd prediction backed by no evidence whatsoever is a great start.

People Praised by The Observer Love The Observer

The New York Observer’s latest issue featured a list of “The Most Influential New Yorkers of the Past 25 Years.” New York’s Daily Intelligencer caught up with Donald Trump and Ivanka Trump  who both made the list — and surprise! They both spoke glowlingly about the paper.

The Donald wanted everyone to know that he not only loved the Observer, he just learned the word ”vibrant:”

I picked up the paper. I read the most vibrant paper and I called Jared [Kushner]. I said, ‘This paper is vibrant.’ The last issue was so great. Not because I was in it, by the way. It was just so great. And I said, ‘You’ve really done a great job, because it was so vibrant.’

Ivanka echoed those sentiments, but failed to use the word of the day:
