If the Unite the Right Rally Were a Movie, It Would Be Uma Thurman's 'Motherhood'

Omarosa not only recorded John Kelly firing her, but she released the tape today, and I have no idea why Omarosa believes that the tape in any way reflects well on her. Did John Kelly “threaten” her with a suit? I mean: Yes. Did John Kelly have the goods to back up that threat? Maybe. We have no idea. This is bad people versus bad people, and I refuse to take a side (but I will enjoy watching both sides destroy each other). (Dlisted)

There were thousands of counter-protestors out today to shout down Nazis in the Unite the Right rally, but there were very few Nazis to shout down.

I was going to compare the Unite the Right rally to a terrible box office bomb like Gigl, but that movie made $3.7 million in its opening weekend and is therefore far too generous a comparison. I’m thinking more along the lines of Uma Thurman’s Motherhood*, a 2010 movie that cost $5 million to make and made a whopping $131 on its opening weekend in the UK, which is to say: Approximately 11 people saw it.

How much Paul Rudd do I need in my life? All the Paul Rudd, Sarah. ALL THE PAUL RUDD. (Lainey)

There are a lot of things that one can easily lie about when running for Congress, but earning a diploma when you didn’t? That’s an easily disprovable lie, although Republican Melissa Howard did her damndest to maintain that lie. The college where she said she received her diploma, however, eventually stepped in. (The Root)

Frank Oz got very pissed off with a dude who claimed that Jim Henson gave him the original Fozzie the Bear. (AV Club)

Remember when Vincent D’Onofrio collapsed on the set of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Twice? And his co-workers didn’t really care because they hated him? D’Onofrio spoke at length about that whole ordeal, admitting that he probably scarred some of his co-workers for life. (Uproxx)

It was looking like both Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth would co-star together in Star Trek 4, but now it looks more like neither Chris Pine nor Chris Hemsworth are even going to be in Star Trek 4. That’s a major Chris loss. (The Mary Sue)

This election year is so goddamn insane that a Democrat actually has a shot (a long shot) at winning a Senate seat in … Mississippi! (Wonkette)’

The first gander of Natalie Portman in Vox Lux looks very intriguing. (Film Experience)

Well, shit, Keith Ellison. (Jezebel)

There’s a release date for Michelle Obama’s “deeply personal” memoir. (Flavorwire)

I actually thought MoviePass was going to turn things around there for a minute. Nope. (/Film)

*Aside from the poor attendance, there are no other similarities between a Nazi rally and this Uma Thurman movie.
