Predicting that tonight’s Democratic debate is going to be a total snoozefest, Donald Trump has heroically volunteered to spice things up by live-tweeting the event. What type of deep analysis will the bombastic GOP candidate be providing? Try MoJo’s Donald Trump insult generator to get an idea. We’ll be gathering Trump’s best—and worst—tweets here. Stay tuned.

It begins:

On Trump’s imagination:

Imitation sometimes is not all that flattering: 

After Sen. Bernie Sanders discredited the importance of Hillary Clinton’s email controversy: 

 

On immigration reform: 

And then the time when he may have stopped watching altogether:

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
