More Than 460,000 Urge Macy's to Dump Donald Trump

A petition urging Macy's to dump Donald Trump has gathered nearly a half million signatures.

TrumpMacy's: Donald Trump does not reflect the "magic of Macy's." We urge you to sever ties with him. Macy's says it has a strong obligation to be "socially responsible" and that "actions speak louder than words." Indeed. It's time to act.

Write the petition's creators:

Macy's has a special deal with Donald Trump. They invest in developing Trump's brand and sell his clothing line and fragrance at their locations. To this end, they have had major events at Macy's Herald Square location and they often feature and promote Trump in advertisements designed to celebrate the magic of Macy's. Recently, Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren sent Donald Trump a letter touting how excited Macy's was to be working with Trump and promising to expand Trump's brand even further than it already is. But, why is Macy's celebrating Trump?

The creators cite Trump's sexist behavior, his hypocrisy about overseas jobs, his denial of climate change, and his birther conspiracy obsession as examples of his socially irresponsible behavior.

President Obama Censures Mourdock, Mocks Trump On 'Tonight Show': VIDEO


President Obama touched on a whole slew of topics during his appearance on NBC's Tonight Show last night.

The commander-in-chief talked Halloween, the debates and test-driving a pal's Chevy Volt. He also poked fun at Donald Trump's offer to donate $5 million to a charity of Obama's choice if the president would unveil his college transcripts and passport application, another volley in Trump's publicity campaign to "prove" Obama is foreign.

"This all goes back to when we grew up together in Kenya," the president laughed. "We had constant run-ins on the soccer field. He wasn’t very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America I thought it would be over.”

The biggest headlines out of last night however are Obama's comments about Richard Mourdock, the Romney-backed Indiana Senate candidate who pulled a Todd Akin by saying that rape is "something God intended" and victims should keep potential babies produced by said crime.

Obama of course disagrees:

I don’t know how these guys come up with these ideas. Let me make a very simple proposition: rape is rape. It is a crime. These various distinctions about rape don’t make any sense to me. This is exactly why you don’t want a bunch of politicians, mostly male, make decisions about women’s heath issues.

Watch Obama's comments about Mourdock and Trump as well as the NBC-provided footage of Jay Leno's entire interview with President Obama AFTER THE JUMP.

Donald Trump to Have Republican National Convention Role

Leading birther Donald Trump will have a "surprise" role at the Republican National Convention, Politico reports:

TrumpTrump has generated some buzz with recent posts on Twitter saying he was planning a “big surprise” at the convention next week. But for the first time sources are confirming Republicans will indeed enlist Trump to be part of their opening day act.

Trump’s appearance will come on a day with a theme titled, “We Can Do Better,” which appears likely to amount to a coordinated attack on Obama’s time in office.

“We are going after Obama,” said Kyle Downey, a convention spokesman. “If he doesn’t want to talk about his failed record, we will. The American people expect and deserve better.”

Trump has also been an outspoken voice for denying gays equal rights.
