Rand Paul's Selfie App Is Going Just How You Thought It Would

It's not a terrible idea for presidential candidates to release promotional apps, as Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky did yesterday.

Watch Lindsey Graham Destroy His Phone After Donald Trump Gave Out His Number

Graham one, Trump zero. Shortly after Donald Trump gave out South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham's mobile-phone number (he's also running for the nomination as the Republican Party's 2016 presidential candidate), Graham released an instructional video on how to destroy your phone. In it, Graham tries pretty much every sadistic method you can think of to render his old-school Samsung clamshell useless. He hacks at it with a meat cleaver, puts it in a variety of kitchen appliances, sets it aflame, and eventually just drops if off the top of a building. And now that he's solidly in need of see more
