A senior official of the Trump administration — writing anonymously — says that he is part of the resistance, working against an “amoral” Trump from within the Administration. Maybe? I dunno. Could just be a dude covering his ass. Either way, I’m just going to tell myself it’s John Kelly. Anyway, among the revelations: That they have considered using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump.

I still can't believe this op-ed exists and yet at the same time it reads like a compilation of blind administration official quotes for the last 3 years. You can recognize almost all the talking points already.— Benjy Sarlin (@BenjySarlin) September 5, 2018

Jennifer Aniston is over Justin Theroux. (Celebitchy)
Selena Gomez didn’t like her Elle cover story. (GFY)
Here’s a fun headline you probably never thought you’d see: “Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop settles lawsuit over false vaginal egg claims.” I don’t even know how to process all of that. (The Mary Sue)
Balmain’s latest fashion campaign is being promoted by three digital models, and can I just say *shudder*. They look like they would absorb my soul if I walked near them. (Buzzfeed)
So this is Norwegian death diving and it’s our new favorite thing. Are they required to go into the water in the most painful manner possible?
The LA District Attorney’s office has decided not to go ahead with sexual assault cases against Kevin Spacey, Anthony Anderson, and Steven Seagal because, in two cases at least, the statute of limitations had passed. (THR)
Hell yes, Piper Perabo!

Many citizens before me have fought for the equal rights of women. I can’t be silent when someone is nominated to the Supreme Court who would take our equal rights away.#StopKavanaghpic.twitter.com/f3SG7gmVam
Alfonso Cuarón made Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkban because Guillermo del Toro made fun of him because he thought he was too good for a Harry Potter movie. (IndieWire)

Everyone goes gaga over Tom and Rita (for good reason!), but Kevin and Kyra are only a few months behind them in celebrating their 30th. Also, adorable!
Good luck with this lawsuit, Roy. I look forward to Showtime conducting discovery as part of its efforts to prove that their claims are true.
Melina was excited when Anne Lamott recommended S. A. Harrison’s The Silent Wife; but when she read it, she didn’t like the writing, the characters, or find it suspenseful. "But don’t trust me, ok. You’ll probably love it and go on to chat with Anne Lamott about how dumb I am for not liking it and yada, yada, yada." Have you taken a recommendation only to wonder what’s wrong with you because you hated the book? (Cannonball Read 10)
Goddamnit, Nike. I’m in. I’m in for all of it. They’re going to run this during Thursday night’s NFL game. This is outstanding, and I almost want to lift my NFL boycott to watch the game for this. (The Root)
