The contrast between the two presidential candidates is quite apparent on many issues, including national security. And their responses on the terrible attacks at Ataturk airport in Istanbul highlights those differences.

During a rally yesterday, Donald Trump expressed his love for waterboarding again and torture in general as a response to fight terrorism when he said, "So we can't do waterboarding, but they can do chopping off heads. We have to be so strong, we have to fight so viciously and violently..."

Who are we supposed to be torturing anyway? The family and friends of attackers, or Muslims in general if we're looking for suspects?

Here's Trump's first tweet which is embarrassing on many, many levels.

He's a true narcissist. See, nobody knows or understands what's going on in the world except for Donald Trump, who's looking to make yuge profits off the collapse of England's currency following the Brexit vote.

Hillary Clinton released a statement on Twitter:

A new NBC/WSJ poll finds that 45% of Republican voters say they are satisfied with Donald Trump as their nominee, while 52% aren't happy about it.

52% is a big number against Trump, but it's still shocking that 45% of the GOP are backing a buffoon like this. I guess torture is just what the doctor has ordered.

Can you help us out?
