Donald Trump, Like Twitter, Apparently Needs a Goddamn Edit Button

Malia Obama has a boyfriend and he looks a little like Steve from Stranger Things, and I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing (and also, whether I’m so old that all young dirty-blonde dudes look like Steve from Stranger Things). (Lainey)

I thought this headline would probably be overselling the story — Melania Trump briefly appeared terrified while meeting Vladimir Putin — but she totally did. (Celebitchy)

Kourtney Kardashian posted a picture of her butt on Instagram and her boyfriend got peeved and then Kardashian got peeved with him, and imagine the world from three years ago where we’d spend 3 days talking about this. (I miss that world). (Dlisted)

How do you even mention Janina Gavankar without mentioning Shivakamini Somakandarkram? (I’m very happy that she’s also been in other things, but also Shivakamini Somakandarkram!) (GFY)

Earlier today, a reporter asked Donald Trump if Russia was still attacking the United States, and Trump said “no,” which is not what the intelligence community is saying, so Sarah Huckabee Sanders took to the podium later today to say that Trump was saying “no” to something else, but we all know that Trump either does not believe that Russia is still attacking the United States electoral system or that he just doesn’t give a shit, but MY GOD, are we going to spend every day listening to Republicans “clarify” and “spin” obvious Trump remarks, because it is exhausting. (Wonkette)

In other, more terrifying news: The GOP is blocking attempts by the Democrats to stop Russian cyber-attacks.

We talked about this on the Pajiba Slack but no one had the bandwidth to actually cover it, so I am grateful that Vivian did, because it is both exhausting and insane. (The Mary Sue)

For what it’s worth — probably not much, ultimately — Brett Kavanaugh is polling horribly, worse than any Supreme Court justice since Harriet Miers, who was withdrawn by George W. Bush. However, withdrawing Kavanaugh would mean admitting a mistake, and Trump would NEVER. And the GOP would never vote against him, because they are afraid of his Twitter account. (538)

I don’t know which statue I like more (Oh, who am I kidding? Of course, it’s Goldblum).

Maybe no one else will, but I actually found Gus Van Sant’s reasoning for making that frame-by-frame remake of Psycho pretty interesting. (Uproxx)

Suits returns tonight WITH Katherine Heigl, and I know we’re all excited about that. No? Just me? (Collider)

Pretty sure I watched most of the Creepshow episodes as a kid, and I’m pretty sure that Stephen King uttering “meteor shit” is all I can remember. Anyway, it’s coming back. (/Film)

I see that Rebecca’s kinks have not gone way (thank God). (SyFy)


Luelladeeville loves a good thriller, and thrillers are great vacation reads. She picked up Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen’s The Wife Between Us because of its comparisons to other female-centric thrillers. "In fact, I spent much of the early going of the book smugly certain I knew exactly where things were going, and while I wasn’t wrong exactly, I was delighted to find that there was so much more than meets the eye." What do you look for in a thriller? (Cannonball Read 10)
