All You Fascists Are Bound to Lose If You Don’t Show Up In the First Place

k0cqudmudvxhg24vyyqf.jpg

WASHINGTON, DC—There was just one moment when I thought I might see a white supremacist get killed. There were two of them, a man and a woman, the only two real live enemies I saw the entire day. Both were sagging in late middle age, both plump, both with long, gray hair, the man with a beard. Both, for reasons I do…

After a painful Jimmy Kimmel interview, Kanye West drops a new track

TwitterFacebook

Kanye West never leaves our news cycle — whether he’s there to stir up boring, gratuitous social media controversy or simply share music.

Thankfully, this weekend gave us the latterDJ Clark Kent shared Kanye’s latest track, “XCTY,” on Twitter sometime Friday night.

It’s his first track released since he dropped five Kanye-produced albums in five weeks.

Credit where it’s technically due: “XCTY” is a decent track. And frankly, it’s a welcome relief from the controversy stirred up from West’s interview with Jimmy Kimmel earlier this week.

Trump Jr. shares a fake Photoshop of his daddy’s approval rating

TwitterFacebook

Donald Trump Jr. was caught red-handed for a terrible Photoshop job, but this time it wasn’t because he airbrushed his pores into oblivion

In a now-deleted Instagram post, Don Jr. shared a CNN report comparing Trump’s approval ratings with statistics from Obama’s presidency. 

“Amazing,” Trump Jr. captioned it. “I guess there is a magic wand to make things happen and @realdonaldtrump seems to have it.”

Except, @realdonaldtrump doesn’t seem to “have it” because the screenshot is a poorly edited graphic that makes the current president’s approval say 50 percent instead of the actual 40 percent. In other words, Trump Jr. has (ironically) participated in spreading fake news. Read more…

TwitterFacebook

Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin is notorious for killing off all his characters. But he’s adamant about keeping a love of reading alive in America.

He and other celebrities are contributing to the PBS series The Great American Read, which is asking everyone to cast their vote to determine the most beloved book in the country. And if you ask Martin, the award should go to the series that inspired his own work: Lord of the Rings.
