Well, now we may know exactly what those "unforeseen circumstances" are: Disney! That's right, ABC's parent company!

Word is Disney execs weren't to keen on their vanilla, bland, popular-and-totally-not-threatening Bachelor star wading into the muddy world of politics, and in turn, hurting their popular TV show's brand!

According to tweets from Denver journalist Joe St. George, who's been covering Higgins' aborted political run, sources say that Disney threatened Higgins with a LOT of trouble if he went through with the campaign (below):

Did Donald Trump Pick Newt Gingrich As His Running Mate?? See The Evidence!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpTwitterViral: News

no title

Looks like Donald Trump may be getting close to choosing a running mate… and it's somebody the Republican Party knows VERY well!

For a few weeks now, Vice President rumors have been swirling around Newt Gingrich — yes, the Former Speaker of the House who worked with Bill Clinton to pass legislation in the 1990s, and then ran his own ill-fated race for President four years ago.

But on Tuesday, everything changed, because FOX News (where Gingrich had been employed as a contributor for years) officially suspended him due to all the campaign chatter.

To put it simply, it's a huge conflict of interest for cable news networks like FOX to employ people who may be part of national campaigns, so the organization felt the reports surrounding Gingrich as possible VP were so loud that it was time to cut ties.

The news network said in a statement:

Screw the election! We want her in the White House RIGHT NOW!

According to her website, the politician understands how important education is to the youth of our country.

"College is a great investment—for students and our economy. But it's a major expense that holds many Americans back well into adulthood. Today, roughly 70 percent of college graduates take out loans to finance their education."

That's why the 68-year-old has come up with a program to make tuition free for those who can't afford it.

This Jimmy Kimmel Skit Proves No One Knows What The F*ck Hillary Clinton's Email Scandal Is About! WATCH!

no title

Oh god! THESE are the people voting in our upcoming election?!

In March 2015, the world was shocked when they learned Hillary Clinton used a private email instead of the official one from the State Department. When this information became public, people questioned the 68-year-old's ethics.

Earlier this week, 165 of those messages were released to the public.

While the controversy almost cost the politician her (presumptive) title of Democratic presidential nominee, it really shouldn't have. Mainly because people don't know what the actual scandal is about!

On Wednesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the show did a skit where they asked people on the street about the content of the emails. However, they made it up to see if folks would know the difference.

Spoiler: THEY DIDN'T!

Hopefully, this will officially end email-gate, and we can continue to focus on the bigger issues at hand.

To see the crazy clip, ch-ch-check it out (below)!

Elizabeth Warren Joined Hillary Clinton On The Campaign Trail And Boy, Did She Come Out Firing At Donald Trump! Watch!

no title

What a big day for the Democrats!

Elizabeth Warren joined Hillary Clinton on stage, hand-in-hand at a major event in Cincinnati today — and the two women went after Donald Trump HARD!

Warren, who has previously endorsed Clinton and now appears to be putting all of her considerable influence behind the former First Lady in her campaign for President, stood confidently by Hillary and made it clear that, yes, she's backing Miz Clinton!

Warren opened up her 14-minute speech on Monday with some very strong words that came to thunderous applause:

"I'm here today, because I'm with her. Yes, her."

But it wasn't Warren's talk of Hillary that is turning heads — it's what the Massachusetts Senator said about The Donald!

Warren called Trump a "nasty man" and said of him:

'Great Businessman' Donald Trump Is Failing To Raise Funds For His Campaign

no title

This is historically bad.

Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, having beat out the rest of the field, but his campaign for POTUS isn't going as well as it seems…

That's because thousands of wealthy Republican campaign donors — people who have given LOTS of money to previous GOP candidates for President like Mitt Romney — are withholding their money from the controversial candidate.

For one, USA TODAY found that just 29 people who contributed to a campaign supporting Romney last election cycle — out of 1,400 total contributors — have given money to Trump this time around. That's less than 2% of previous donors reaching out to the current GOP candidate, which… YIKES!!

We already know how big Trump's money problems are during this campaign, but if he can't get Republican donors and wealthy backers to help him along the trail, he is in big trouble.

The way Trump tells it, he claims he's running a successful campaign on a shoestring budget and he'll do the same with the government, but actual campaign experts just don't see it the same way.

Charles Spies, a Republican lawyer who has long worked for political action committee to raise funds for GOP candidates, went all in on The Donald to USA TODAY about the terrible fundraising situation:
