Oh boy…

On Monday, Rodrigo Duterte — the mayor of southern Davao city — is expected to win the Philippines national election.

As indicated by an unofficial vote count, the politician received more than 14.4 million votes. Former Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas comes in second place with 8.6 million votes.

According to William Yu of the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting:

"We can call it now because the gap got so big relative to the maximum the No. 2 can get."

While the results are not technically official, the group is accredited by the Commission on Elections to conduct a "quick count." Final results are expected Tuesday.

Duterte — who has been dubbed the "Donald Trump of the East" — has run an extremely controversial campaign. As we reported, the 71-year-old made headlines when he made a rape joke about Australian lay minister Jacqueline Hamill at a rally.

He has also been accused of making homophobic and violent remarks — including the promotion of death squads. He has become so infamous, John Oliver did a piece on him for Last Week Tonight.

It was fun while it lasted, Rick Perry!

Just kidding… it was disturbingly homophobic.

The former Texas governor and kind-of-two-time presidential candidate has now officially dropped out of the race for 2016, citing the 'great' field of candidates he was facing down.

LOLz!! Sure, Rick. Sure. He claims he's looking to spend more time with family, but there's no way it could be at least partially due to his absolutely minuscule poll numbers, though, right??

Either way, Perry made the announcement in St. Louis on Friday (below):

Say What? Which Presidential Hopeful Really Made These Questionable Quotes — Donald Trump Or Chris Christie?

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpControversy

no title

What exactly happens when neither of the two evils in question are the lesser party?

Chris Christie announced on Tuesday that he would be running for the Republican nomination for President.

The New Jersey Governor couldn't have picked a more perfect time, because no matter what crazy things he says in the upcoming weeks, he's probably still going to look better than Donald Trump!

As you're surely aware by now, the former Celebrity Apprentice star has already been given the axe from all things NBC following his racist Presidential bid speech.

And while Mr. Trump may not be the best with words, we didn't think it'd be right to just let Chris sneak by without pointing out all of the asinine things he's let slip out of his mouth in the past.

So without further ado…

Filed under: Politik

newt-campaign.jpg

Thankfully for his pride, the end is almost here.

Though he is well behind both Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in the polls, Newt Gingrich has not given up on his campaign to win the GOP presidential race. During a rally last night in California, he spurned the National Review for hinting that he should quit while he is, well, behind. But Newt is resilient and told the crowd:

Pretty much every presidential election has its share of comedic candidates, either to point out how ridiculous something in a campaign is or just to make people laugh.
