Anger ... Slowly ... Rising
Statement from Melania Trump today:
“Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform. She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with a heart.”
Both sides? BOTH SIDES? Lady, there’s not two sides. There’s not even one side. There’s basically three people — Trump, Stephen Miller, and Jeff Sessions — and the men who are enabling them, if you want to call that a side. Fuck you.
You can fuck off, too, Anthony Scaramucci.
If there’s no policy, THEN WHY IS IT HAPPENING?
Laura Bush, meanwhile, weighs in and calls the policy “amoral.” (WashPo)
Speaking of Melania, Trump said that he got “lots of kisses” from his wife on his birthday (*dry heave*). Melania was in New York on his birthday, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (Celebitchy)
In case you missed it, here’s your first look at Jason Momoa et. al, in Aquaman, a movie is almost certainly going to suck. (Lainey)
Believe it or not, I’ve gained a modicum of respect for Kim Kardashian over the years. This would dash that immediately. (Dlisted)
Jeff Goldblum continues to straight up own his late-career memeworthy sexiness, doesn’t he? (GFY)
This is notable mostly because it demonstrates just how intent the Russians were to interfere with our election: A Russian man offered Roger Stone dirt on Hillary Clinton in exchange for $2 million (an offer that Stone says he rejected). (The Root)
Seth MacFarlane admits he is embarrassed to work for the same company that owns Fox News. (AV Club)
Meanwhile, Patty Hearst — the mother of Chris Hardwick’s wife, Lydia Hearst — has seemingly come to Hardwick’s defense. (Vulture)
“As a mom who often wants to scream “You fucking bitch!” while holding my child, I have long been in awe of Betty Gilpin on GLOW, and she lived up to all of my expectations.” — Katey Rich on GLOW’s Betty Gilpin. (Vanity Fair)
If Fifty Shades Of Grey had been well, written, funny, profound, about two gay men, with no consent issues, Julia in Austin says it would be How to Bang a Billionaire by Alexis Hall. Unfortunate title aside, "Hall has a way of getting at the heart of a character and story, social and cultural issues with the mundane, the everyday, the obvious once stated." Are you willing to take a chance on a book with a great recommendation despite the title? (Cannonball Read 10)
Finally, Happy Father’s Day to all you Dads out there. Mine died twenty years ago this year, and I LOVE MY DEAD GAY FATHER.
