Oh, hey, a bunch of anonymous folks collected the numbers for White House staff where you can actually call and maybe leave a message with Kellyanne Conway or Jared Kushner now, since the official White House public comments line doesn’t seem to exist any longer, oddly starting this year… (Gothamist)
Azealia Banks causing draaaaahmmmma. Shocking. *yawn* - (Lainey)
When I was 20, I was a nanny for triplets, so this news makes me really happppyyy. Pharrell Williams and his wife Helen had triplets! - (DListed)
These Trump regret tweets are both delicious and sad. (Tumblr)
Word is Trump will throw a big ol’ titty baby fit if he has to meet with Prince Charles. Supreme Ruler Stubby Fingers only wants to meet with William, Kate, and Harry. I think the whole damn family should just put a sign on Buckingham Palace that says, “Gone Fishin’” and be mysteriously absent that day. (Celebitchy)

(But other good news: Mindy Kaling and Tina Fey shows). (Uproxx)
I’m in a “FUCK EVERYONE” kind of mood today, so this trailer really appealed to me, because, man, I really want everyone to not be assholes, too. Just, yeah, don’t be assholes, ok? - (oohlo)
A quick follow up to Rob Lowe’s insensitive remarks about the airport protests this weekend, which cast members of the West Wing and Brie Larson made fun of. Paul Verhoeven also weighed in, because Rob Lowe’s dickishness is the gift that keeps giving.
Just landed. Saw grandmas and little children dragging heavy luggage for for BLOCKS just trying to get home. #laxprotest— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) January 30, 2017
