If you haven’t seen it already, there’s a yuuuge inflatable chicken with Trump hair outside the White House. - (Celebitchy)

Why was this created? Why was it allowed in stores? Who is buying it? Why? WHY? I have so many questions, but all of them are WHYYYY? - (Impulsive Buy)

You guys may be aware that H.R. McMaster fired a bunch of Mike Flynn hangers-on in the National Security Council over the last few weeks. Well, it turns out there’s a good reason: They were associated with a memo going around suggesting that Trump was under attack by “deep state actors, globalists, bankers, Islamists, and establishment Republicans,” and chief among Trump’s enemies was … H.R. McMaster. The memo actually made it to the President’s desk, because for some goddamn reason, the President’s son, Don Jr., got a hold of an NSC memo and gave it to him. And oh yeah: Trump is furious about them getting fired, because he LIKED the memo. And now H.R. McMaster’s job is in even more danger. Crazy story. (Foreign Policy)

CELINE has left Paris, which I can’t believe I’m saying this, I’m really kind of bummed about. I have so enjoyed her CELINENESS and FASHIONING outside of her hotel and well, now what? Now what, CELINE? Now what? - (Lainey)

Lou Diamond Phillips will be guesting on You’re the Worst (which returns next month - weeeeeeeeeee!) as himself. I love that he does this. He also guested as himself on Cougar Town. - (AV Club)

Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder had a baby. That’s not really news. They’re going to stay isolated in their home, just the 3 of them, no visitors and no phone calls, for 30 days. Cool cool. Also? Total hippie baby name. Total. - (Dlisted)

Jerome FLynn is not so popular after shooting a DRAGON. I mean, I understand he’s an actor and it’s not real and blah, blah, blah, but still, I might have a little trouble myownself with not sneering at him in the grocery store if I ran into him. - (Mashable)

Taylor Swift testified today in her groping trial and, you guys, from the testimony, she was fucking AMAZING. Good for her. - (LG)

Niecy Nash is on the cover of Essence Magazine and truthfully, not a great picture. I say this because I have been watching Claws and OMG, she can look reaaaal good! Also? Watch Claws! The season finale is this Sunday, but you can maybe catch all of the episodes OnDemand. The show is fucking BONKERS. It’s trashy and funny and suspenseful and sweet and scary and sexy and full of a whole lot of OHMYGODDAMN WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK?! - (GFY)
