I'm currently sitting on a plane at O'Hare airport on my way to Iowa. As you may have noticed, I’ve been encouraging folks to register to vote (and to get their friends registered). But I think it’s important to walk the walk, so I'm heading to Iowa to help people get registered to vote.
Tomorrow (Note: He posted this late last night so he's doing it today), I’ll be kicking off the day at a local park in Mt. Vernon, Iowa, then will be stopping in at coffee houses in various cities. If you're an Iowan (or even adjacent to Iowa), come get registered to vote and join me for a cup of coffee! Here's my schedule (all times are subject to change because, as you well know, traffic in Iowa can be brutal):
10 AM-10:45 AM Memorial Park Gazebo
(First Street NW, Mount Vernon, Mt. Vernon, IA)
11:15AM -12:00PM Blue Strawberry
(118 2nd St SE #100, Cedar Rapids, IA)
2:00 PM -2:45 PM Smokey Row
(639 Franklin Street, Pella, IA)
3:45-4:30 Mars Cafe
(2318 University Avenue, Des Moines, IA)
I'll be campaigning for Hillary and encouraging Iowans to volunteer for her campaign while I'm on this tour, and I hope you'll join me in supporting her to become the first woman President in US history. It's imperative that we don't hand someone as unhinged and divisive as Trump the keys to the Oval Office. No matter where you are in the US, please make sure you're registered to vote. Don't let your voice be left out of the conversation.
Please comment below. I welcome a dialogue and I will be responding as I can to questions, criticisms, diatribes and compliments. Oh, and one more thing: with any chance that a prejudiced, misogynistic, narcissist like Donald Trump could take the Oval Office, I think it’s crucial we not lodge 3rd-party “protest votes” at this moment. It would be great if we had more choices in American politics, but this is not the moment to launch that fight. Hillary has my vote.
See you tomorrow, Iowa!
Earlier in the year Misha attended a Trump rally to interview some of his supporters. He ended up describing the rally as one of the scariest things that he's ever witnessed and drew comparisons between Trump and Hitler.
In bonus Trump fuckery...
She has since unliked the tweet and it has been deemed an accident by a member of her staff.

The video is long but it's worth a watch. He talks a lot about the language that Trump uses to get people fired up but that he has no actual policies and also about his experiences in the white house with Hillary. Also this is mostly an excuse to continue ranting about all this fuckery.
