When it was revealed that FBI Director James Comey found new reasons to investigate Hillary Clinton over emails that surfaced following Wikileaks’ series of campaign revelations, that only served as dessert on a week full of crazy occurrences that began with the former FLOTUS up 12 points in the polls.

She is now up by just 4 points after a new series of polls revealed another monster comeback by the Big Engine That Could, Donald Trump.


There was also Ben Affleck pleading with the “f—ing beautiful people” of New Hampshire, a swing state, to get out the vote. And Newt Gingrich blowing up social media for lambasting Megyn Kelly on live TV for caring only about sex.

Russian President Vladimir Putin scoffed at the idea Russia had played any role in influencing America (“is it a banana republic, or what?”) and while he was at it gave a little breakdown of how Trump has handled himself thus far.

Speaking of the GOP nominee, Putin says he “behaves extravagantly of course, we see this, but I think there’s a reason for this. He represents part of US society that’s tired of having the elite in power for decades.”

That sounds a little like our five reasons people love Trump, in a nutshell.

Homeless woman stands guard as Trump’s Walk of Fame star set for repair

In a weird incident that went viral this week, a man dressed as a construction worker smashed to pieces the Hollywood Walk of Fame star devoted to Trump, and his actions caught up to him.

The LAPD arrested the perpetrator, but not before things got even weirder when a homeless woman took it upon herself to be the guardian of it from here forward. “Twenty million illegals and Americans sleep on the streets in tents,” one of the unidentified woman’s signs reads, one sign of her signs said. “Obama threw our black a– under the bus.”

The FBI announcement that put the Clinton campaign on its heels

Republicans reveled with the latest addition to Clinton’s email saga, while her campaign was taken aback and looking for an appropriate response.

An email blast sent by campaign chair John Podesta shortly after the FBI’s statement became viral news suggested “it is extraordinary that we would see something like this just 11 days out from a presidential election.”


Secretary of State Joe Biden?

Say it ain’t so, Joe? Hillary Clinton, apparently, already has the State Department’s top dawg picked out should she get elected. Politico reported the news late Thursday, beginning the speculation over potential Cabinet members as Election Day draws nearer.

It would, of course, depend upon Clinton winning the election — which is definitely not a guarantee at this point. Trump has not yet named a potential secretary of state, although he has suggested maybe a fist fight with Biden is in the near future.

Voter in Texas jailed for donning a Trump hat at the polls

In a whacky turn of events just days after media reports detailed a woman’s votes getting “flipped” in another Texas county, a San Antonio man who rolled up to vote wearing a Trump baseball cap and t-shirt reading “basket of deplorables” was arrested and jailed near San Antonio.

“I went up there and talked to him,” the policeman said. “I told him, ‘I support you and I appreciate what you’re doing. It’s your right, but you’re going about it the wrong way here.’ The election code has very specific rules,” the officer said. “These are the rules and you have to abide by the rules.”

It remains to be seen if Trump supporters elsewhere in America intend to play by the “rules” with widespread worry that the election is being rigged against them.
