Sunday Link-Off: Normalizing Stupid

heather-graham-amfar16-02Tomorrow is the first of three US Presidential debates. Netflix is going to get a workout from those of us 1) not in America, and 2) wanting to remain sane rather than watching hours of lies and playground insults. Good luck, America. No matter who wins, you lose. The rest of us will lose more if a hairpiece wins.

Anyway, it’s Sunday which means that you’re here to read some links. Alternatively, you could be here to see us kick this post off with Heather Graham who you can’t tell is 46.

“If you vote for Donald Trump, then screw you.” (GQ)

“I will never stop hating this election for normalizing stupid.” (Esquire)

What do you know about the Presidential campaign issues? If your answer is “next to nothing,” that’s because the media is too busy covering campaign drama to worry about the issues. (The Conversation)

On that note, I’m not sure what Trump’s economic plan is other than tax cuts for the wealthy but Wall Street doesn’t like the idea of a President Trump. (Marketplace)

Who needs Lester Holt to fact check the debate when you can pre-fact check the lies you know you’ll hear anyway? (Slate)

Trump aide Chris Christie is at risk of being impeached as Governor of New Jersey. Just another sign that Donald hires the best people. (New Jersey Star-Ledger)

The man behind Oculus VR is bankrolling the pro-Trump meme machine that’s basically his whole online campaign. Everything I’ve read says the HTC Vive is the better VR device anyway. (The Daily Beast)

Not everyone in the VR industry is happy about Luckey’s alt-right political views. Many VR developers are distancing themselves from Luckey and Oculus. (Vice)
