New Poll Shows A LOT Of Donald Trump Supporters Don't Think We Should Have Freed The Slaves… Read The Shocking Statistics!

no title

Despite being criticized about his comments regarding Muslims, immigrants, and women, Donald Trump is totally destroying the competition in the Republican primary election.

To get a closer look at the people backing the GOP frontrunner, The New York Times polled Trump supporters to see where they stand on the issues!

The report focused on the racial beliefs of the former Apprentice host's voters, and found one especially unsettling statistic — almost one in three of Trump's advocates did not approve of freeing slaves!

You read that correctly. The YouGov/Economist poll asked supporters if they approved or disapproved of "the executive order that freed all slaves in the states that were in rebellion against the federal government," aka the Emancipation Proclamation.

In a startling revelation, the poll showed that 13 percent of Trump backers disapproved of it — and another 17 percent weren't sure!

The report also notes that 70 percent of Trump's South Carolina supporters want the Confederate flag in their statehouse again, and 38 percent wish the South won the Civil War!

Even if they're in the minority of Trump supporters, we're completely shocked ANYONE thinks slavery should still exist.

But seeing as though some of The Donald's advocates were straight up wearing KKK robes at the Las Vegas caucus, these statistics might not be as surprising after all — click HERE to read the entire report!

The Jinx's Robert Durst Pleads Guilty And Is Heading To Prison For 7 Years — But Not For Murder!

Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!

no title

This is an interesting development.

Robert Durst has been a suspect in several murders, and he finally admitted guilt in a New Orleans federal court on Wednesday — but not for any of the killings.

The New York real estate heir finally plead guilty to those gun charges for illegally possessing a .38-caliber revolver.

Last year, the subject of the HBO docu-series The Jinx was arrested by the FBI, who feared that Durst was about to flee the country.

During his arrest at the J.W. Marriott Hotel, where he had registered under an alias name, officials discovered a handgun. Since the 72-year-old was a convicted felon at the time, it was illegal for him to possess a firearm.

Under a plea bargain arrangement, Durst will be sentenced to 85 months in federal prison, and will eventually be transferred to prison in El Lay by August 18 — where he will face murder charges.

Last year, the millionaire was arrested for the execution-style shooting of his college friend Susan Berman – an act in which authorities think was to keep her from talking to investigators about the disappearance of his first wife Kathleen McCormack in 1982.

Durst has gotten off for murder before with the help of the best defense lawyers in the country — he was never even charged in the disappearance of his first wife!

He was also acquitted of murder charges in 2003, despite admitting that he cut up his neighbor Morris Black and threw the parts into Galveston Bay. Allegedly, the death was an accident after the two men fought over a gun.

But now, it looks like Durst's luck is finally running out…

Adele's Own Songs Make Her Cry! Not Even The Singer Is Immune To Her Emotional Music!

Filed under: Music MinuteAdele

This proves NO human can listen to Hello without tearing up!

Stars, they're just like us!

We all pretty much broke down sobbing when we first heard Hello, partially because we were so happy our queen was back but mostly because it was so DANG emotional!

Seriously, Adele's music hits home with EVERYONE, especially her!

In an interview published on Thursday, the British beauty told the New York Times that even she tears up listening to her sentimental songs!

In fact, the 27-year-old explained that's how she knows the track is a good one! She said:

"In order for me to feel confident with one of my songs it has to really move me. That's how I know that I've written a good song for myself—it's when I start crying. It's when I just break out in [expletive] tears in the vocal booth or in the studio, and I'll need a moment to myself."

Wow! We're thinking that Adele must've been bawling over her new single, considering the song is such a smashing success already! LOL!

But on a serious note, the hitmaker was actually nervous to record another album after 21, because she was concerned it wouldn't be good enough. She explained:
