Trump Trolls Rosie O'Donnell




Given everything that has gone wrong for the President over the last 48 hours, you'd think he would be trying to change the narrative, find a solution to the mess he's created for himself, and reach out to his allies so that he can unify his message to the American people.

Nope. 

Trump spent the afternoon using Twitter to goad Rosie O'Donnell into a Twitter war.






 

The 25th Amendment to the Constitution is a beautiful thing, but it has to be studied and put into action. Trump needs to be medically examined by physicians at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center immediately.

Would You Tell This Woman to Lose Weight?




More proof that the world is dumb:

Miss Iceland has quit an international beauty pageant after she was allegedly told to lose weight.

Arna Ýr Jónsdóttir said staff from the popular contest, Miss Grand International, told her to eat less ahead of the final. 

    In a "goodbye" letter posted on Instagram Monday, she wrote: "I am a very strong woman, but sometimes my strength isn't enough.

    "Your staff told me that I had to lose weight for the finals because I have too much fat on me and also too big shoulders."

    It might be a good idea to point out that the man in question wasn't Trump because that was the first reaction I had to this story--what did Trump say about a woman now? But, no. It was some other ridiculous asshole.

    Oh, and as if this needs to be said--don't ever tell anyone they need to lose weight. It's none of your damned business. Period. End of story.

    House of Cards Can't Top America's New Reality




    The good folks who write the show House of Cards are running into the same problem that the people writing Veep have confronted this season--the current reality faced by the American people is far worse than anything they can come up with.

    In this new trailer, Spacey’s President Underwood prepares for his election campaign with a sinister message. “The American people don’t know what’s best for them. I do. I know exactly what they need,” he tells wife Claire, played by Robin Wright.

    “They’re like little children, Claire. We have to hold their sticky fingers and wipe their filthy mouths. Teach them right from wrong. Tell what to think and how to feel and what to want. They even need help writing their wildest dreams. Crafting their worst fears. Lucky for them, they have me. They have you.”

    Spacey’s character finishes the monologue by saying: “Underwood, 2016. 2020. 2024. 2028. 2032. 2036. One nation, Underwood,”

    What do you do when you have a country actually being ruled by a dictator? You turn your show into a story about a guy who wants to declare himself a dictator and rule the country for the next twenty years. I wish them well, and I know that Kevin Spacey is good in everything he does, but, wow. Look at where we are as a country. We're fictionalizing things that still can't top what's real.
