Sunday Link-Off: Convention Time

summer-rae-wwe16-10The Republican National Convention just wrapped up and it certainly wasn’t without controversy. The Democratic National Convention is about to kick off and I would expect is be equally a gong show. However, since the RNC just happened, I figure that I should focus on that first.

Anyway, it’s Sunday and it’s time for us to do the links. Since we have a big wrestling post coming tomorrow, let’s kick off with newly Raw exclusive wrestler Summer Rae.

Want to know the real Donald Trump? The ghostwriter of The Art Of The Deal explains how he started making the modern Trump. (The New Yorker)

How did Trump pick his running mate? Basically, his options largely eliminated themselves. (New York Times)

A big deal was made about Ted Cruz not endorsing Donald Trump. However, he had a good reason that I couldn’t argue with. (Rolling Stone)

It’s decidedly ironic that Roger Ailes time at the top of Fox News ends as Donald Trump ascended to the top of the GOP. The man who created modern conservatism became a hero and then saw it all destroyed as he became the villain. (Politico Magazine)

Part of the Republican National Convention was “make America safe again.” Well, crime statistics don’t back that up. (AP)

Probably bad news for the Democrats: WikiLeaks has released just about 20,000 emails from the Democratic National Committee. (Daily Caller)

Bad news: Science says that alcohol causes seven different types of cancer. No wonder why conservatives hate science. (The Guardian)

The Tragically Hip have just started their last ever tour. (Rolling Stone)

McDonald’s of New Zealand allowed people create and name their own burgers. It went about as expected. (Dorkly)

I know that Pokemon Go is supposed to be the new Tinder but be careful who you PokeTinder up on.
