Good christ, it’s been a shitty day! Here, before we go any further, let’s just watch Maru push a little cart with stuffed animals around, shall we?
Oooh, here’s a toast to this ScarJost post, it’s better than most. Cram it. I’m tired and I’m DOING THE BEST I CAN. - (Lainey)
A third Kushner private email account has surfaced. This one contains hundreds of emails from the White House to both Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, and Javanka’s staff had access to these emails. Where’s the outrage, Republicans? WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE NOW? (Politico)
Meanwhile, the Trump administration expressed support today for criminalizing abortions after 20 weeks. Criminalizing. As in, put in prison. (The Hill)
The day that 60 people died and over 500 were injured, Bill O’Reilly suggested that “this is the price of freedom.” Well, it’s too fucking high, Bill. We’re happy to give up a little of that freedom in exchange for the ability not to die in a goddamn rain of gunfire. (AV Club)
As for Pat Robertson? Alyssa nails it.

Sometimes I miss Joel McHale and E!’s The Soup. And then sometimes I REALLY miss Joel McHale and E!’s The Soup. Today it’s the second one. Because Heidi and Spencer Pratt had their baby and OMG, what I wouldn’t give to hear Joel’s take on it. - (Dlisted)

We were one of the many, many outlets who falsely reported that Tom Petty had passed, based on reports from CBS, Variety, and several others. We apologize. Also, we’re really glad we’re not Rolling Stone right now. This is Tom Petty’s daughter:
@rollingstone my dad is not dead yet but your fucking magazine is ⚡️⚡️⚡️your slime😵 has been pieces of tabloid dog shit. You put the worst artists on your covers do zero research. How dare you report that my father has died just to get press because your articles and photos are so dated. I will fucking shit down your throat and your family's . Try not being a trump vibe. This is my father not a celebrity. An artist and human being. Fuck u
She’s posting a lot of very sweet things right now on her Instagram account, too. More evidence that Petty was a good dude: His daughter adores him. (Instagram)
Remember Napoleon Dynamite? There’s a line in it where he says to Deb, “I like your sleeves; they’re real big” and it’s a compliment. I like Dita’s sleeves. They’re real big. - (GFY)
Emmalita was almost finished with a routine review of Christina Lauren’s Dating You Hating You when she read Robert Gottlieb’s Romance Roundup in the NY Times Review of Books (in print yesterday). "Paragraph after smug paragraph, Gottlieb got under my skin. Maybe it’s because the modern "working girl" romance I had just read deserved so much better." She refocused her review through the lens of the toxic sexism (racism too!) demonstrated in Gottlieb’s writing. What’s the most dangerous idea a romance novel has given you? (Cannonball Read 9)
We’ve all heard that reading makes you smarter or increases your vocabulary, but it actually rewires your brain. Sofuckingcool. - (Big Think)
