There’s so much going on today, I don’t even know where to begin. Let’s start with the humanization of Angelina Jolie through footwear? Wait, no. Better yet: How about Nicki Minaj continuing to not help her case. (Lainey)

Respectfully, I actually agree with Shauna Sexton’s comments with re: to Ben Affleck’s relapse on her Instagram post. It’s not her fault; Ben is “a grown ass man,” and there’s no need to judge Sexton because she’s a 22-year-old who drinks a lot, because many of us were 22-year-olds who drank a lot and it wasn’t our responsibility to babysit 45-year-old men.

My twins sing that Drake song all the time, but it’s going to take on a whole new meaning now that we know that it might have been about Kim Kardashian even though Kim Kardashian denies that it was about Kim Kardashian. (Dlisted)

This is a super sweet moment.

A pair of Judy Garland’s ruby slippers were stolen in 2005. They were recently recovered, and this thread details how the Smithsonian Museum of American History helped verify that the recovered shoes were authentic.

Seriously, Ted Cruz is so bad at this. (Raw Story)

When Jenny S asked a Turkish friend about Turkish authors she should read, Elif Shafak came up. Shafak’s Honour explores two generations of a Turkish family examining how they arrived at a son murdering his mother. "That said, this novel felt strangely optimistic and suggests that things can change, even as it tears out your heart and stomps on it." Are there non-Western authors you wish more people were reading? (Cannonball Read 10)

It won’t ultimately matter in the outcome of the confirmation vote, but Cory Booker and Kamala Harris are making strong pitches for 2020.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders has responded in the most predictable way to Bob Woodward’s book.

For real:

Not that Kelly doesn’t deny the other statements attributed to him in Woodward’s book. Just the “idiot” part.
