Who is in Billionaire Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s Little Black Book?

If you’ve never heard of Jeffrey Epstein, he’s a hedge fund manager who likes to have sex with children, something that wouldn’t be particularly big news if Epstein didn’t “give rides” to some very famous people.

Epstein was arrested for trafficking underaged girls and Gawker got a hold of his “little black book” with the names and numbers of all his “associates.”

Now, keep in mind that there’s no way to know why these people are in here or why some of them, like President Donald Trump are circled while others, like President Bill Clinton, who flew on Epstein’s plane over 20 times, aren’t. But let’s get into it.

Match Game host Stupid Alec was so stupid. How stupid was he? He was so stupid that he used to hang out with a guy who blanks little girls.

I don’t have clever jokes like that for everyone in the book but come on, how often does that opportunity come up?

Did you like the Rush Hour movies? I did. There probably aren’t going to be anymore because Chris Tucker is in there.

Courtney Love was in there, as was Charlie Rose, which is no surprise. Ralph Fiennes, too. Also Alan Dershowitz, lawyer to the stars, and O.J. Simpson.

And let’s hope for David Blaine’s sake he didn’t make anything disappear on Epstein’s private child rape airplane.

And oh, the politicians. I mentioned Presidents Clinton and Trump, but former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was in the book, too. As was Prince Andrew. Man, maybe we can abolish the royal family for good now. Also, basically every Kennedy. Well, the living ones. But even 91-year-old Ethel Kennedy is in there. Epstein seems like a good fit for the Kennedy family, honestly.

That’s most everyone interesting. Jimmy Buffett was in there but who cares about Jimmy Buffett?

E. Jean Carroll: Journalist Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Assault

Back in the simpler world of 2015, many believed that sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trump would prevent the reality-star-turned-demagogue from being elected president.

Obviously, that turned out not to be the case, and the current climate in the United States is about what one would expect from a country that's presided over by an accused rapist.

Donald Trump is Irate

As a longtime denizen of the New York literary scene who once cohabited with Hunter S. Thompson, journalist and author E. Jean Carroll is certainly no stranger to bad behavior from powerful men.

She details several traumatic encounters with toxic male behavior in an excerpt from her upcoming memoir that was published on Friday on New York Magazine's website.

One account has attracted far more attention than the other, as the alleged assailant went on to become the President of the United States.

Carroll says she met Trump while shopping at Manhattan's Bergdorf Goodman department store in "the fall of 1995 or the spring of 1996."

E. Jean Carroll and Donald Trump

Both she and Trump were in their fifties at the time, and he was married to his second wife, Marla Maples.

Carroll writes that Trump told her he was shopping for a present "for a girl" and asked for her help.

He suggested lingerie and convinced her to try it on for him.

Once she was in the dressing room, Carroll claims, Trump assaulted her.

Donald Trump is Irate

"The next moment, still wearing correct business attire, shirt, tie, suit jacket, overcoat, he opens the overcoat, unzips his pants, and, forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway — or completely, I'm not certain — inside me," Carroll writes.

"It turns into a colossal struggle."

Obviously, there's nothing funny about this horrific allegation.

But Carroll deserves credit for hitting Trump where it hurts and understanding that he's more likely to be upset by the suggestion that he might be sporting a half-wang than by yet another allegation of sexual assault.

Leading His Cult

After all, she is now the sixteenth woman to accuse the president of some form of sexual misconduct, and thus far, Trump hasn't even come close to suffering any sort of repercussions.

No criminal investigation, no impeachment, not even a formal censure.

It's always an act of bravery to come forward against a sexual predator, but when said predator is the most powerful man in the world and has been getting away with this sort of thing his entire life, calling him out publicly requires unfathomable courage.

We applaud Carroll for coming forward and encourage anyone who might be in her position to do the same.

After all, it's becoming increasingly evident that our future relies on fearless individuals willing to defend the ideals and values that were once protected by law and order.

Taylor Swift-Kim Kardashian Feud Heats Up: Donald Trump Is Involved Now?!

Earlier this week, we reported on the surprising news that Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have officially ended their feud.

While the pop landscape might be a more peaceful place as a result, it was undeniably a sad day for fans of petty celebrity rivalries.

Kim-Taylor

Fortunately, the equally-entertaining Taylor Swift-Kim Kardashian feud appears to be going strong!

Taylor just dropped a new single entitled "You Need to Calm Down,"  and while the song is ostensibly a straightforward pro-LGBTQ anthem, many fans ate convinced that several lines have double meanings and are intended as subtle jabs against Kim.

Kim's prison reform efforts brought her back to the White House today, and the 38-year-old apparently feels that Swift's new song cast a shadow over what should have been one of the proudest moments of her career.

Kim Kardashian Wants a New, Better Party

“Apparently, Taylor will never be done shading Kim, but Kim is letting her appearance at the White House yesterday speak for itself,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.

“It just so happened that the day Taylor announced her album, Kim spoke at the White House in front of the whole world, completely blowing her out of the water.”

The insider says Taylor's sly disses were not lost on Kim, who selected her attire for today in order to send a message to Swift:

“And it is no coincidence at all that Kim wore green, the color of the snake,” the source claims.

Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala look 2019

Using a White House event on prison reform as an opportunity to throw subtle shade at a pop star sounds insane -- but then again, so does everything else about 2019.

So Radar's interpretation is that Taylor's new single just happened to drop on the same day that Kim spoke at the White House.

But the folks over at Cosmo make a pretty convincing argument that Swift planned it that way and loaded her lyrics with coded jabs at Trump.

As many have observed on Twitter, it might not be a coincidence that the song was released on the Donald's birthday.

Kim-Tay Tweets

And the progressive lyrics present exactly the sort of argument that tends to deepen the president's perma-scowl:

“You are somebody that we don’t know / But you’re coming at my friends like a missile / Why are you mad? / When you could be GLAAD?” Swift sings at one point.

“Sunshine on the street at the parade / But you would rather be in the dark ages," she  later croons.

“’Cause shade never made anybody less gay.”

Taylor Swift in Sydney

Obviously, much of this situation is open to interpretation, but the Radar source assures us that things are about to escalate rapidly:

“Kim will continue to drop more subtle hints on social media as more of Taylor’s album becomes revealed,” the insider claims.

“She is really sick of it, but at the end of the day they both kind of live for it.”

Fortunately, so do we!

President Trump is Good Friends With the “Prince of Whales”

This may not be the most unique insight, but President Trump is really fucking stupid. Like, do you remember how stupid George W Bush was? Because Trump is even dumber than that. And of course it’s because of a tweet he made.

This Tweet.

Yes, that’s right, he just met with the Prince of Whales. Which is this guy.

The United Kingdom consists of four countries: England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Charles is the Prince of Wales. I’m sure he gets along well with Donald Trump because he’s constantly promoting homeopathy, also known as trying to treat diseases with water, also known as the reason your new iPhone is a piece of shit.

Now I know what you’re thinking, Donald Trump makes a million typos, what makes this one so special? Are you reaching out to a new audience of wine moms, trying to get on Michael Che’s good side?

I mostly just thought this one was really, really funny. Like yeah, covfefe and hamberders, whatever, those are just typos. What Trump did here was mix up Prince Charles and Namor the Submariner, and that’s hilarious to me.

This was in response to all the hand-wringing about Trump saying that he doesn’t ee a problem with getting dirt on political opponents from foreign nationals in an interview with ABC News newsmuppet George Stephanopoulos. I have to admit, Trump is probably right here. He won and he’s clearly not going to pay any political or legal price for anything he’s done, so what’s stopping him? George Snuffleupagus mentioned that Al Gore was mailed George W Bush’s debate prep materials and turned it over to the FBI without using it. But Al Gore lost and George Bush committed a bunch of war crimes for which he was also never punished legally or politically, so did he actually make the right choice?

The point, at the end of the day, is that the President of the United States thinks Prince Charles is the Prince of aquatic mammals.

Meghan Markle: Did She Piss Off the Queen By Snubbing Trump?

Last week, Donald Trump made his first official visit to the UK.

And as just about everyone predicted, it was an irredeemable sh-tshow.

Queen and President

Prior to touching down in London, Trump referred to Meghan Markle as a "nasty" woman, because nothing sets the stage for a friendly visit quite like roasting your hosts for a comment one of them made three years ago.

Not surprisingly, Meghan was not on hand for the president's official banquet, and Prince Harry snubbed Trump in his own way, reportedly refusing to acknowledge the orange elephant in the room.

For the most part, the Sussexes were applauded for their decision to flip the Trump the royal bird in such public fashion.

But as The Daily Beast's royal editor Tom Sykes points out in his latest column, the decision to dodge the Donald carried with it profound complications:

Greetings, Everyone

"While William and Kate appear to have accepted they must do their duty, put country before their own personal feeling (by, for example, attending the state dinner held in President Trump’s honor), Harry and Meghan are making it very clear that they will be led first and foremost by ethical considerations," Sykes wrote.

That sounds great -- and it is! -- but traditionally, the role of the royal family has been to keep the peace with foreign nations, except in cases of extreme hostility.

We're talking "hostility" on the level of wars and sanctions, not snarky comments to Piers Morgan.

Donald Trump is Irate

To be clear, we are in no way defending Trump, and we believe Meghan had every right to snub him for talking trash.

But we can see why royal traditionalists might have qualms about Markle taking what some might interpret as a stand against the UK's staunchest ally.

"Meghan’s steadfast refusal to participate in the Trump circus was generally greeted by the public as an appropriate response to Trump’s bizarre insults of her and his history of misogyny and racism," Sykes wrote.

"It has, however, provoked a few tuts of disapproval amongst old-school palace insiders.

MarHar

"She is an American and she is a senior member of the royal family, therefore it was perceived by her critics as rather odd that she was not on hand to greet another American."

This is yet another example of how royal life is not all it's cracked up to be -- sometimes, you're forced to be polite to people who have done nothing to deserve politeness.

Clearly, the only way the Duchess can make this right is to change her name to #MAGA Markle.

We kid, Trump has already moved on to his next outrage.

Prince Harry Was "Grumpy," Snubbed Donald Trump During UK Visit

Presideny Donald Trump touched down in Great Britain this week for a three-day, official state visit.

But he wasn't exactly given a hero's greeting upon his arrival.

At least not by one very prominent British citizen.

Prince Harry with Ivanka

According to The Sun, Prince Harry attended a private lunch with the President and First Lady on Monday, but he didn't speak very much to the Commander-in-Chief.

This same group was then taken on a tour of Queen Elizabeth's private art collection, but Harry chose to hang back as much as possible at this point.

An insider says he made a point NOT to be photographed anywhere near the President.

This British publication explains that Harry walked in with the President’s daughter, Ivanka, during this showing -- but then left her to talk to the Lord Chamberlain while the Queen showed the Trumps around the Palace.

Queen and President

"Harry was the third most senior royal in the room after the Queen and his father, but didn’t seem to take any part in his royal duties," an onlooker tells The Sun.

Royal commentator Ingrid Seward, meanwhile, offered a similar account:

“Harry did look grumpy and as if he didn’t want to be there," she said, adding

"He appears to be behaving in a rather immature way and letting his personal animosity take over from his natural good manners.

"Whatever his personal feelings, it’s his duty to support the Queen regardless and take a tip from his grandmother who has never allowed her personal feelings to interfere with her duty.

"It’s bad manners and rude."

Donald Trump is Irate

One might say, of course, that President Trump has exhibited nothing himself except for bad, very rude manners -- so why should he deserve anything but the same in return?

Just a few days ago, upon being told of negative comments Meghan Markle made about him three years ago, Trump slammed the Duchess as nasty.

He added at the time, speaking in general of Markle as a member of The Royal Family:

“I think it’s nice, and I’m sure she’ll do excellently. She’ll be very good.”

However, the damage had already been done.

trump transscript

Thankfully for Markle, though, she never had to pretend to make nice to the President.

She remains on maternity leave and is not attending any official events at the moment.

As soon as Harry’s official duties were over yesterday, The Sun reports, "he dashed off to his exclusive Chelsea gym KX, where he spent 90 minutes working out."

He probably had quite a bit of stress to get out after having to hold in his contempt for the American President for so long.

Harry then chose not take part in the official state banquet at the Palace last night, despite it being attended by Charles, Camilla, William and Kate.

Can anyone blame the guy?!?

Donald Trump: God, Meghan Markle Can Be Such a "Nasty" Woman!

It was really just a matter of time, wasn't it

With so many critics out there slamming Meghan Markle left, right and everywhere in between... does it really come as a shock that Donald Trump would eventually get in on the act?

meg vs. don

During a visit to Great Britain this week, the mentally-damaged 72-year-old President was reminded of something Markle said back during the 2016 general election.

With a handful of reporters in the room, Trump was questioned about the Duchess of Sussex’s past criticism of him, with one journalist relaying exactly what Markle threatened to do about two years ago.

“She said she’d move to Canada if you got elected,” this person told Trump in an interview published by The Sun today. “Turned out she moved to Britain.”

The remark drew a bit of laughter in the room.

President Trump, however, said he was unaware that the new mother said anything of the sort, adding:

“I didn’t know that she was nasty,” he replied. 

Here is the full transcript of the exchange:

trump transscript

Trump, as perhaps you remember, previously used the term “nasty woman” to describe his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton.

This is an adjective he seems to only reserve for members of the opposite sex. We'll let you go ahead and try to figure out why.

According to various outlets, meanwhile, Markle refused to meet with Trump during his visit to her adopted country, choosing instead (we assume) to hang out at home with husband Harry and new baby son Archie.

Trump did go on to note the benefits of having an American in the Royal Family.

“I think it’s nice, and I’m sure she’ll do excellently,” the Commander-in-Chief said. “She’ll be very good.”

Buckingham Palace had no comment on Trump's interview regarding Markle.

Donald Trump is Irate

Markle, for her part, remains on maternity leave.

Not only isn't she meeting with Trump, she isn't meeting with anyone these days. She has no professional obligations on her calendar for the forseeable future.

The former actress and perpetually-polarizing personality gave birth just under a month ago to her first-ever child.

She debuted little Archie for the world to see two days later, but has remained totally out of the public eye ever since. And for good reason, right?

Duke, Duchess and Baby

Considering all the frickin crap written about Markle on a nearly daily basis, we wouldn't blame the Duchess if she went underground and almost never emerged again.

At some point, however, it's safe to say we will hear from Meghan and we will see Meghan again.

But we highly doubt she'll respond to Trump's latest bit of sexist bitterness.

He simply isn't worth any of her time.

Is Donald And Melania Trump’s Sham Marriage On the Rocks?

Being the President of the United States is hard, stressful work. You can see the way the job visibly ages the occupant of the oval office. You’ve got to check Twitter, watch Fox News, send tweets from the bathroom at 2 a.m., buy fast food for college kids, pass some tariffs and sanctions to cripple our economy, get on Twitter to take half an hour between threaded tweets… it’s a lot of work.

I’m assuming that’s what other presidents did, at any rate, I can’t even really remember what that was like, it’s been so long. Were there even other presidents? I seem to remember a guy who did a movie with a monkey and then someone with severe brain damage in a cowboy hat, but it all seems so long ago.

SO it makes sense that with all that stress it would start to take a toll on your marriage, especially if it’s a sham marriage where you were out banging porn stars while your wife was still breastfeeding. People reports that the President and the First Lady were seen fighting at Mar-a-Lago recently.

“Melania was upset and they had words with each other over something,” the source tells PEOPLE. The couple was eating together in the club’s dining area on March 30.

It remains unclear what the issue was, according to this source.

“Donald, you’re doing to the entire country what I let you do to me once a month to earn my allowance; fucking them sidewise and leaving them disappointed.”

Mrs. Trump’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, disputed the witness’ account as “completely false” but did not elaborate — instead telling PEOPLE, “I’d encourage the anonymous source to say such things on the record.”

I don’t know, I’m prone to believe People’s anonymous source. Given everything I know about them, which is literally nothing, weighed against everything I know about the Trumps, it seems the anonymous person, who could be anyone, literally anyone, is more credible.

President Trump Orders Investigation into Jussie Smollett, Smollett’s Attorney Says Nigerian Attackers ‘Could Have Worn Whiteface’

I really wanted to be done talking about Jussie Smollett. Nope. Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in! By “they,” in this case, I mean the President of the United States, who tweeted about the case because I clearly did something to anger a god I don’t even believe in.

NBC confirmed the investigation is taking place.

Federal officials confirmed to NBC News that the Justice Department is reviewing the Smollett case and how it was handled, though expectations were low Thursday that any federal action would be taken.

Also mad about this was Chicago Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. If you’re wondering why Smollett keeps making increasingly unbelievable claims about finding the real MAGA hate crimers, it’s because the city of Chicago is demanding Smollett pay them $130,000 for the investigation they carried out. That’s a lot more than the $10,000 bond he forfeited to skate on his charges in the first place.

Now, the good thing about Smollett is he’s pissing off all the right people. Trump, Rahm Emanuel, the Chicago P.D. If one of the Clintons makes a statement disparaging him I’m going to donate to his Kickstarter.  The bad thing, though, is that he and his legal team think we’re all idiots. They’re telling us to our face they think we’re idiots. Listen to what his attorney Tina Glandian said on Today, via Mediaite:

“Well, you know, I mean, I think there’s — obviously, you can disguise that. You can put makeup on. There is, interestingly enough, a video. You know, I think police had minimal investigation in this case, it took me only five minutes to Google. You know, I was looking up the brothers, and one of the videos that showed up actually was of the brothers in whiteface doing a joker monologue with white makeup on him. So, it’s not — it’s not implausible.”

That is just disrespectful right there. That is like telling me that Spider-Man really died in Avengers: Infinity War even though we all know there’s a Spider-Man movie coming out like two weeks later. You may as well just spit in my face.

Alec Baldwin Thinks Donald Trump is Going to Have Him Whacked For ‘SNL’ Mockery

Saturda Night Live has, for the past 45 years, been the home of some of the most toothless political satire to ever fill the air. It just isn’t what the show does well. The show has parodied every president since it debuted in 1975, but the most famous parodies were completely divorced from reality; Chevy Chase’s Gerald Ford was an uncoordinated clod while Ford himself was an All-Star football player in college, and George Bush, unlike Dana Carvey, never said “Not gonna do it, wouldn’t be prudent.”

This tradition continues today with Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of Donald Trump; Baldwin nails Trump’s mannerisms, but Trump isn’t dumb in an entertaining way the way George W Bush was, so SNL mostly has nothing to say. Despite the fact that SNL‘s Trump parodies are neither particularly funny or particularly insightful, they really piss Donald Trump off.

Baldwin told #resistance dork Scott Dworkin on his podcast that this particular tweet made him fear for his safety, via The Guardian:

“People would say to me early on, do you have any concerns about retaliation, not necessarily from the government or from Trump, but from his agitators?” said Baldwin. “I always said not really, I didn’t really think that was something that was real, until now, when he made this comment about retribution and he thought SNL should be investigated.”

Baldwin said the president’s hostile language functioned as “codes”.

“Trump signals people, not necessarily what to do, but how to feel, and that’s the beginning. The beginning is you make people angry, the beginning is you make people agitated and bitter and then the actions flow from there.”

That’s somewhat legitimate, some dude in Kentucky just got busted planning an insane act of domestic terrorism targeting Trump’s political enemies. But it’s not like this is unique to Trump, either; John Hinckley tried to assassinate Ronald Reagan because he thought it would impress Jodie Foster, and that was way before Twitter existed.

Donald Trump Invites Joshua Trump to the State of the Union Address, Ruining His Chances of a Normal Existence

It can’t be said that Donald Trump doesn’t try to be charitable once in a while. As long as it benefits him personally in some way, of course.

In December, there was a story about an 11-year-old boy named Joshua who was being bullied by his classmates because he sadly carries the highly unfortunate last name of Trump (no relation). According to Joshua’s parents, the bullying became so awful that they had to pull their son out of the school system and homeschool him.

Let me say right now that it is entirely inexcusable to bully and torment a child for no reason just because he happens to be in possession of the same last name as a carrot-colored man-child who currently sits in the Oval Office. It’s not his fault that he has the misfortune of carrying this surname; the blame lies with the giant loud-mouthed tangerine who brings disgrace to the name on a daily basis.

To extend his condolences, Donald Trump extended an invitation to young Joshua Trump to be his guest at his State of the Union speech, and therefore, sealing Joshua’s fate of ever being able to attend school again. I don’t know why anyone thought it an 11-year-old would have any interest in listening to a lengthy political speech given by a vulgar, long-winded orangutan, but Joshua did indeed attend.

I was concerned about Joshua’s fate before, but now I think he’s actually going to be all right. Why? Because Joshua reacted to a Donald Trump State of the Union address the way any 11-year-old (heck, any living, breathing human being) would. He fell asleep. Don’t worry, kid, you’re going to be a-okay.

Donald Trump’s Orange Complexion is the Result of ‘Good Genes,’ and That’s the Story He’s Sticking With

Donald Trump’s orange hue has always been a topic of mockery. I mean, can you blame, people? Trump is a detestable person all on his own, and his clearly unnatural carroty complexion just lends itself to additional ridicule. Maybe if Trump were a better and nicer guy, no one would care as much about his pigmentation, but sadly, that is not the world we live in.

There has been much speculation as to how Trump comes by his Oompa Loompa look. Nothing has been officially confirmed, but most theories are tanning beds, spray tans, poorly applied makeup, or plain old lying out in the Florida sun. Former FBI Chief James Comey said in his memoir that Trump’s face was “slightly orange, with bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assumed he placed small tanning goggles.” Former Trump aid Omarosa Manigault Newman likewise reported of Trump’s tanning bed use in her recent tell-all book.

However, according to a source in The New York Times (a senior administration official who would only speak under anonymity), the official word is that Trump’s orangutan complexion is attributed merely to the President’s “good genes.”

Right. If anyone out there believes this line of bull, I would want to know what the hell you’re smoking. I would ask you if I could have some of that stuff, but I don’t think I want to exist in whatever perpetual delusion you’re residing in.

Secondly, I think the term “good genes” is used incredibly loosely here, to put it mildly. If Trump is considered to be the pinnacle of what it means to be blessed with good genes, that’s not a reality I want any part of. Does anyone out there really think that having the same complexion as a decayed tangerine with cloudy white eye rims is a great look? Y’know, other than Trump?

We already know that Trump is Class A narcissist, so I’m guessing there’s no one to tell him (and be believed) how awful he looks. There’s almost something a little sad about someone who gets up in the morning, looks in the mirror, and thinks how striking he looks with an overripe carrot hue. “Almost” being the operative word here.

Jussie Smollett’s Releases Statement, Labels Assault an Act of "Domestic Terrorism"

The loved ones of Jussie Smollett have released their first statement since the Empire actor was savagely beaten for being a gay African-American.

And they appear to have taken a shot at President Donald Trump in the process.

Jussie Smollett Snapshot

“In the early hours of Tuesday morning, our beloved son and brother, Jussie, was the victim of a violent and unprovoked attack," the family said to open its message, adding:

"We want to be clear, this was a racial and homophobic hate crime. Jussie has told the police everything from the very beginning. His story has never changed, and we are hopeful they will find these men and bring them to justice."

According to Smollett, he was attacked by two men who hurled racial and homophobic epithets in his direction.

The men also screamed that he was in "MAGA country."

They then punched and kicked Smollett, fracturing his ribs, prior to tying a rope around his neck and pouring bleach all over him.

As many have noted, this really was the equivalent of a modern-day lynching.

Jussie Smollett Votes

This is how the statement continued:

Our family thanks everyone for their prayers and the huge amount of love he has received. We are thankful to our village for your immense support during this trying time.

We are so grateful that God saw him through this cowardly attack alive.

Jussie is a warrior whose light cannot be dimmed. We want people to understand these targeted hate crimes are happening to our sisters, brothers and our gender non-conforming siblings, many who reside within the intersection of multiple identities, on a monthly, weekly, and sometimes even daily basis all across our country.

Oftentimes ending fatally, these are inhumane acts of domestic terrorism and they should be treated as such.

They will continue to occur until we hold each other accountable.

As far as we know at the moment, Smollett is in stable condition.

Moreover, we now have photos of the two suspects.

smollet fam

Because the assailants referenced "MAGA," the shorthand for President Trump's slogan of Make America Great Again, many folks had been waiting for Trump to address the awful incident.

He finally did so on Thursday afternoon.

“That I can tell you is horrible,” Trump says when asked about it in the following video. “I’ve seen it. Last night. It’s horrible. Doesn’t get worse.”

He does not, however, say anything specific about the "MAGA" taunt directed at Smollett.

To conclude their statement it certainly, Jussie's family certainly appears to call out the President and a lot of his hateful rhetoric over the years.

"Make no mistake, words matter. Hateful words lead to hateful actions. Radical love is the only solution, but passivity will be our downfall. We, as a family, will continue to work for love, equity and justice until it reigns supreme in our nation and all over the world," the statement concluded.

"With love & gratitude, the Smollett Family."

In related news, Smollett is expected to return to work in the near future.

As soon as he is medically cleared, the actor will be back filming new episodes of Empire.

We wish him all the best.

President Who Built His Entire Image on Being Rich Served Fast Food at White House Reception

Donald Trump is an 8-year-old’s idea of what being rich is like come to life. He has no taste, class or refinement, he’s on his third trophy wife and all his ties are too long. That doesn’t have anything to do with anything, it jut bugs me.

Trump really outdid himself in the tacky department tonight, though. The Clemson Tigers were at the White House Monday, being honored for winning the NCAA football title. Because they arrived during the partial government shutdown due to the President’s intransigence on the border wall, the White House cooking staff as unavailable to cater the event. You might be assuming that the President called a local caterer to handle the event; a football team and staff isn’t much different in size from the average wedding party, after all, plenty of places in D.C. could handle the job.

No, President Art of the Deal’s idea of a nice meal is to get a shitload of fast food and put it on the White House’s fine china.

Yeah, those college kids wouldn’t be able to get fast food like that just anywhere, it’s a special day for them.

“Were there french fries?” I hear you asking.

I can’t even with this. I don’t even see any McNuggets there, what kind of half-assed fast food spread is this?

You’d think he’d at least spring for Papa John’s since Papa John is also a racist.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good delivery pizza and a quarter-pounder with cheese. But it’s not what you want on your special once-in-a-lifetime visit to the White House in your honor as a national champion. It’s like getting to spend the night with your high school girlfriend while your spouses are out of town and you just play Magic: The Gathering. It’s not the worst thing in the world, but it isn’t what you were hoping for.

Donald Trump Hates Kids

Donald Trump should not be allowed around children. Ever. Evidently, it’s not enough that he has to ruin Christmas for federal workers, but he has to try and wreck it for young children, too. In between holding the government hostage with his temper tantrum about his wall, Trump almost ruined a 7-year-old’s Christmas by questioning her belief in Santa Claus.

On Christmas Eve, Collman Lloyd of Lexington, South Carolina decided to call up the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) to get some stats on Santa Claus’s current location. NORAD famously tracks Santa Claus’s journey every Christmas Eve (seriously, it’s a lot of fun for kids and even adults, too) online, but kids can also call NORAD if they want.

For some reason, Donald and Melania Trump were at NORAD helping to take calls from children. There’s no explanation as to why they were there; I think they probably just wandered inside, sat at the telephones, and no one felt they could ask them to leave. And presumably, Melania just wanted to get the hell out of the White House for a while. With Donald’s current moods permeating the premises, it’s likely more than a little suffocating in there.

So, young Collman called up NORAD and the scientist who answered asked the seven-year-old whether she would like to talk to the president of the United States. Why this scientist thought it a good idea to subject this innocent child to this giant loud-mouthed tangerine is beyond me. After being on hold for six minutes, Collman was patched through to Donald Trump where they had this exchange:

“Are you still a believer in Santa?” (Donald Trump)

“Yes, sir.” (Collman Lloyd)

“Because at 7, that’s marginal, right?” (Donald Trump)

Collman responded with a “yes” as she said later that she didn’t know what the word “marginal” meant. This sparked talk among news outlets as to whether Trump had possibly ruined Santa for this little girl and causing Collman to question a few things.

“I was like, ‘wow.’ I was shocked. I just had to think of what the truth was.”

Anyway, I’m glad to say that this story has a happy ending. After assessing the situation, Collman decided that Santa Claus is real after all and received her great Christmas wish: a brand new American Girl Doll.

And really, Santa Claus is the personification of generosity itself. He’s a symbol of the Christmas spirit. We teach this to little children through fairy tale and myth so they can understand the gift of giving (and develop an imagination). The original belief won’t and can’t remain, but as children grow older, they learn that while Santa Claus isn’t whom they thought he was, they can understand and appreciate what he represents in regards to the spirit of the holiday: kindness and generosity.

That’s a story and lesson we can all learn from including Donald Trump.

Melania Trump Has Been Assimilated

Well, it’s happened. All of Trump’s women are now officially blonde (fake blonde, but we all knew that). Melania Trump just debuted her new, blonde hairstyle. And it definitely looks like Melania’s been dipping into Donald’s personal hair dye.

For years, Melania has been the hold-out, hanging on to her caramel brown locks. Her hair was the only part of herself that gave her a sense of identity. It was a way to stand apart from Trump’s other wives and mistresses. She clung to that last part of herself, that last remaining shred of her being.

But no more. After resisting for years, Melania has finally been completely assimilated into Trump’s Cult of Women. She may have retained some part of her original self at one point, but now, there is no longer any hint of humanity; there is only Trump.

On the other hand, maybe this is a clever survival tactic on Melania’s part. Trump has a thing for blondes, and his staff is full of blondes. Melania can now blend in with the rest and Donald will have a hard time finding her. Trump seems like the kind of guy who really can’t tell one blonde apart from another anyway. Once she camouflages herself, Trump won’t be able to tell which one is her, and will end up boning one of the other blondes with his mushroom dick. It means Melania gets one more night off from having to deal with her great, hulking orangutan of a husband.

Donald Trump Met Christian Bale and Thought He Was Really Bruce Wayne

No one has ever accused Donald Trump of being firmly grounded in reality. Christian Bale recently recalled how he met Trump during the filming of Batman when the crew was shooting in Trump Tower. Bale said that Trump invited him up to his office for a chat. And the conversation was….well, weird. This is what Bale said about the conversation:

“I think he thought I was Bruce Wayne because I was dressed as Bruce Wayne. He talked to me like I was Bruce Wayne and I just went along with it, really. It was quite entertaining. I had no idea at the time that he would think about running for president.”

Christ. This is how a four-year-old would react to meeting someone dressed in a Big Bird suit with the absolute belief that a 6-foot tall talking yellow bird is indeed real.

Then again, this unsettling blunder on Trump’s part is entirely believable. After all, we’re talking about a man who thought the U.S. sold Norway fighter planes that exist only in the world of Call of Duty. If you think about it, a gaffe like this is not terribly surprising given that Trump has the maturity, impulse control, and gullibility of the average four-year-old.

Bale didn’t say what the two of them discussed, but I imagine that the two conversed about their mutual fear of flying rodents, where to score sports cars with hot runway models included with purchase, and gauging each other’s thoughts on the recent Joker crime spree. Also, Trump probably was looking to sell “Mr. Wayne” on investing in the building of a shiny new Trump Hotel in Gotham City.

Stormy Daniels Has to Pay Donald Trump $300k, New Record for Most Expensive Terrible Sex Ever

Man I feel bad for Stormy Daniels. Not only did she have to have sex with Donald Trump, now she has to pay him almost $300,000 because she hired an incompetent, self-promoting buffoon to be her lawyer. God, she really has a type, doesn’t she?

Speaking of which, Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti gave a statement to The Hill which was… not grounded in reality.

Avenatti blasted the decision Tuesday, saying in a statement to The Hill that “Harder and Trump deserve each other because they are both dishonest.”

“They received less than one half what they asked for because the request was gross and excessive. Stormy will never [have] to pay a dime because they owe her over $1 million in attorney’s fees and costs from the main NDA case, especially in light of Cohen’s guilty plea to a felony,” Avenatti said.

And on Twitter.

I know Stormy is used to working with dickheads and assholes, but everyone has a limit. Hire one of OJ’s lawyers, Stormy. Hell, hire Rob Kardashian, even he wouldn’t be this bad.

The money is for the court costs and attorney fees from a lawsuit Daniels brought against Trump for mocking the idea that he sent someone to intimidate her in a parking garage over the NDA he had her sign when he banged her in a hotel room while he was giving Hillary Clinton campaign advice.

Turns out calling someone horseface is protected speech and that courts don’t look too kindly on frivolous lawsuits. A good lawyer would have known that and not cost his client hundreds of thousands of dollars in order to raise his profile and get a bunch of #resistance retweets on Twitter.

Pharrell Williams Sends Donald Trump Cease and Desist After Rally Plays ‘Happy’ Following Shooting

Pharrell Williams does not want his music played at President Donald Trump‘s rallies.

On Saturday, after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting that killed 11 people and injured six others, a rally that Trump spoke at played Williams’ upbeat hit “Happy.” The musician and producer sent him a cease and desist letter as a result, USA Today reported.

“On the day of the mass murder of 11 human beings at the hands of a deranged ‘nationalist,’ you played his song ‘Happy’ to a crowd at a political event in Indiana,” wrote Howard King, Williams’ lawyer, according to USA Today.

“There was nothing ‘happy’ about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this purpose,” the letter continued. “Demand is hereby made that you cease and desist from any further unauthorized use of Pharrell Williams’ music.”

In August, Steven Tyler sent Trump his own cease and desist letter after Trump used Aerosmith’s “Livin’ on the Edge” at a campaign event in Charleston, West Virginia. “I do not let anyone use my songs without my permission,” Tyler said in a statement. “My music is for causes not political campaigns or rallies.”

Adelethe Rolling Stones, Neil Young and REM’s Michael Stipe are among the musicians who have also told Trump not to use their music.

At the Future Farmers of America convention on Saturday, Trump joked that he had considered canceling that appearance because of his hair.

“By the way, somebody just said, ‘Your hair looks different today,'” Trump said. “I said, ‘Well, I was standing under the wing of Air Force One doing a news conference early this morning, a very unfortunate news conference. And the wind was blowing and the rain, and I was soaking wet, and that’s what I ended up with today.'”

“I said, ‘Maybe I should cancel this arrangement because I have a bad hair day,’” Trump continued.

Donald Trump Made Ted Cruz His Bitch

After calling humanoid Ted Cruz “Lyin’ Ted”, claiming his father was associated with Lee Harvey Oswald and insinuating his wife is ugly, Donald Trump is now holding rallies for Ted where he’s declaring himself a nationalist and calling him “Beautiful Ted”.

And Ted Cruz is putting on his shit-eating grin and taking it like the whimpering bitch he is which gets Trump so erect. This tweet sums everything up perfectly.

I don’t even know why anyone wants to vote for that guy. He’s a cuck by every definition and I thought those diehard MAGA guys hated cucks.

Trump Tells Reporter ‘Don’t Be a Baby’ When She Asked About ‘Hardened Criminals’ Entering the U.S.

President Donald Trump is back to making baby references.

On Friday, the president, 72, sat down for a roundtable discussion in Arizona, where he claimed that a group of migrants that were headed towards the United States border were “hardened criminals.”

“Some of these people are hard criminals. Hardened criminals — not good people,” Trump said. “These are some bad people coming through. These aren’t babies, these aren’t little angels coming into our country.”

However, when Trump was asked by a reporter to defend why those migrants were considered to be so dangerous, he brushed off the question. Instead, he told New York Times reporter Emily Cochrane: “Oh, please. Please. Don’t be a baby. Okay?”

Trump added, “Take a look, just take a look at what’s happened. Look at the Mexican soldiers that are laying on the ground.”

“I didn’t say in all cases. But in many cases, these are hardened criminals,” he continued. “These are tough, tough people, and I don’t want them in our country and neither does our country.”

The group of migrants were traveling in a caravan towards the U.S. when they were stopped and allegedly attacked with tear gas by Mexican authorities, USA Today reported.

Trump has been using the issue as a tactic to threaten to cut off aid to countries in Central America, including Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

This is not the first time that Trump has referenced a baby.

On Sunday, during a 60 Minutes interview— which marked his first time on the program since taking office — the president addressed claims that there were people in the White House he did and did not trust, noting that he was “not a baby.”

“I don’t trust everybody in the White House, I’ll be honest with you,” Trump said. “I’m usually guarded. And I think I’m guarded anyway. But I’m not saying I trust everybody in the White House. I’m not a baby.”

He continued: “This is a tough business. This is a vicious place. Washington, D.C. is a vicious place. The attacks, the bad-mouthing, the speaking behind your back. But you know, in my way I feel very comfortable here.”

And the connection extends well into the summer too. A 20-foot balloon of an angry, orange, diaper-clad baby resembling him soared over the British Parliament Square on July 13 — the same day as the U.S. president’s visit to the U.K.’s capital.

The blimp, dubbed “Trump Baby,” was approved by none other than London Mayor Sadiq Khan himself after a crowdsourcing campaign amassed over $20,000 and 10,000 signatures in favor of the stunt.

After causing a sensation overseas, it was announced that the Trump Baby blimp would be making an appearance in the States. It has since made stops in California and Florida, with plans to fly outside of the president’s golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Following Trump’s roundtable comment on Friday — and Cochrane’s subsequent tweet — the Internet couldn’t resist posting memes, gifs, and tweets dedicated to the one and only Trump Baby.

Some tweeted their support to Cochrane, writing: “What the hell does that mean? Did you press him on it. Can’t you say, ‘Answer the question, Sir!'”

“He’s the baby. He has absolutely no evidence,” added another user.

“Thank you for asking this question. We can only hope your reporting can make a difference. Don’t give up, don’t get discouraged!” one person wrote.

Meanwhile, others accused him of being sexist towards a female reporter — which he was previously criticized for earlier this month.

“He has such a way with women, Doesn’t he?” joked another user.

Donald Trump Actually Won a Lawsuit Against Stormy Daniels

Hey, remember when we all found that the President of the United States slept with a porn star and then she told everyone he has a deformed dick that looks like a Mario Brothers character? What a disgrace. When Bill Clinton fucked an intern in the Oval Office, she was classy enough not to tell us what his dong looked like. Also his wife said it was totally cool and not an abuse of power for the ruler of the free world to fuck his subordinates, so, you know, they were better times.

Trump actually got a win against Stormy Daniels that didn’t involve making her wait to fuck him while he took a call from Hillary Clinton during Shark Week. Today a defamation lawsuit by Daniels was tossed under anti-SLAPP laws. It all started when Trump made this tweet in April.

Daniels said someone threatened her, and the drawing of the suspect looked superficially like one of her exes. There’s too much crazy on either side of this for me to unpack it, but I find it equally plausible that Trump hired someone to threaten a porn star as I do that Daniels hired an ex to threaten her. But Trump said it was a “con job” and Daniels and her lawyer Michael Avenatti sued for defamation.

That didn’t work out well for them, as reported by the Washington Post.

Trump’s legal team used a freedom-of-speech defense to get the suit tossed, and on Monday, U.S. District Judge James Otero agreed, saying the “one-off rhetorical comment” was protected by the First Amendment. “The court agrees with Mr. Trump’s argument because the tweet in question constitutes ‘rhetorical hyperbole’ normally associated with politics and public discourse in the U.S.,” Otero said. “The First Amendment protects this type of rhetorical statement.”

Daniels will have to pay Trump’s attorney fees.

The best thing about this, however, is that it’s made a minor celebrity out of Michael Avenatti, who is exactly the kind of asshole you’d expect to be suing the President of the United States on behalf of a porn star.

That so reminds me of Jeb Bush going “please clap” during the primary. Like Jeb’s candidacy, it didn’t trend. Just a piece of advice, but when you’re involved in a dispute with Donald Trump and you’re the one who looks like an asshole, you may want to rethink every choice you’ve made in your entire life.

Melania Trump’s Spokesperson Calls for Boycott Against T.I. Over ‘Disgusting’ Stripper Video

A spokesperson for the first lady is firing back after rapper T.I. posted a video of himself watching a Melania Trump lookalike strip in the Oval Office.

Stephanie Grisham, Mrs. Trump’s director of communications, posted on Twitter Saturday calling the video “disgusting.” She added, “How is this acceptable? … #BoycottT.I.” and tagged the rapper, 38, in the tweet.

Asked for further comment, Grisham told PEOPLE on Tuesday: “Like it or not, she is the first lady and this is the White House. It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics. These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country — it needs to stop.”

T.I., who is an outspoken critic of Melania’s husband, President Donald Trump, dropped an NSFW clip on Friday on his social media accounts, which mocks Kanye West‘s meeting last week with the commander in chief, 72.

After watching the president fly away on his helicopter, T.I. then stands behind POTUS’ desk watching a woman enter the room.

Soon she strips off her green jacket — a replica of the real Mrs. Trump’s “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” trench — and stands naked on the desk, stroking T.I.’s tie. They later leave together and are seen spray painting over Trump’s portrait and trashing the White House.

“Dear 45, I ain’t Kanye,” T.I. captioned the minute-long video, which is a promo for his new album, Dime Trap.

Friday’s post came a day after T.I. shared a long rant against West following the 41-year-old Yeezy owner’s bizarre meeting with the president.

All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits,” T.I. wrote. “This is my stop, I’m officially DONE!!!! Trump & his Lil Cookie Boy.”

“At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you…” T.I. added of his former collaborator, who is a vocal Trump supporter. “Now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you.”

“Don’t follow this puppet,” T.I. continued. “Because as long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world, if to do so he must lose his soul. We just saw Mr. West’s Soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor.”

Since West’s visit with Trump, other celebrities have spoken out about West — including Diddy50 CentAva DuVernay, and Jeffrey Wright.

Stormy Daniels Loses Her Defamation Suit Against Trump — and Has to Pay His Legal Fees

Donald Trump has defeated the defamation suit brought against him by Stormy Daniels.

The adult film actress, whose birth name is Stephanie Clifford, sued him in April for suggesting on Twitter that she lied about a man allegedly threatening her to keep her quiet about a sexual encounter she claims to have had with the president.

At the time, Trump tweeted about Daniels’ claims, calling the allegation “a total con job” and “playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”

On Monday, Federal District Judge S. James Otero in Los Angeles dismissed Daniels’ lawsuit against Trump, calling his tweet “rhetorical hyperbole normally associated with politics and public discourse in the United States,” according to the ruling obtained by CNN.

“Mr. Trump’s tweet is a non-actionable opinion that cannot be the subject of a defamation claim,” the ruling states, later explaining, “The First Amendment protects this type of rhetorical statement.” (Judge Otero previously indicated in September during arguments that he believed the tweet by Trump that named her appeared to be protected by the First Amendment.)

Otero also wrote that Daniels “sought to publicly present herself as a political adversary” to Trump.

In addition, Monday’s ruling ordered Daniels to pay Trump’s legal fees.

“No amount of spin or commentary by Stormy Daniels or her lawyer, Mr. Avenatti, can truthfully characterize today’s ruling in any way other than total victory for President Trump and total defeat for Stormy Daniels,” Trump attorney Charles Harder said in an emailed statement as reported by multiple outlets.

Meanwhile, Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti filed an appeal to the dismissal, according to USA Today.

“Re Judge’s limited ruling: Daniels’ other claims against Trump and Cohen proceed unaffected. Trump’s contrary claims are as deceptive as his claims about the inauguration attendance,” Avenatti tweeted following news of the ruling. “We are confident in a reversal.”

Daniels filed a separate suit against the president and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, seeking to invalidate a non-disclosure agreement in which Cohen paid her $130,000 to remain silent about the alleged affair between Daniels and Trump before the 2016 presidential election.

Trump and a White House spokesperson have denied having an affair with Daniels.

Donald Trump Says He ‘Doesn’t Trust’ Everyone in the White House: ‘I’m Not a Baby’

President Donald Trump appeared on 60 Minutes on Sunday, marking his first time on the program since taking office.

Trump, 72, taped the interview with Lesley Stahl on Thursday at the White House, according to CNN’s Reliable Sources, which cited people familiar with the matter.

During their discussion, Stahl asked Trump about comments First Lady Melania Trump made in her recent interview with ABC News. “Melania has said that there are still people in the White House that she doesn’t trust, and that you shouldn’t trust either,” said Stahl.

“I don’t trust everybody in the White House, I‘ll be honest with you,” Trump responded. “I’m usually guarded. And I think I’m guarded anyway. But I’m not saying I trust everybody in the White House. I’m not a baby.”

He continued: “This is a tough business. This is a vicious place. Washington, D.C. is a vicious place. The attacks, the bad-mouthing, the speaking behind your back. But you know, in my way I feel very comfortable here.”

The president revealed he wasn’t happy with everyone in his cabinet and departures could be coming, but he did not name names.

Trump had previously turned down requests to appear on 60 Minutes, the most-watched news program in the country, CNN reported.

The interview comes as Trump faces criticism for failing to confront Saudi Arabia over the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, a dissident Saudi journalist who had been living in the United States. “We are going to get to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishment,” he told Stahl.

Trump has said that U.S. investigators are looking into how Khashoggi disappeared at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul but made clear that he does not plan to cut off arms sales to Saudi Arabia because of the incident, according to The Guardian.

“At this moment they deny it. Could it be them? Yes. In the not to distant future I think we’ll know.”

Amal Clooney Slams Trump for Mocking Christine Blasey Ford: ‘A President Shouldn’t Ridicule’ Her

Amal Clooney had a good reason for not attending Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday.

Serving as one of the keynote speakers at the 2018 Pennsylvania Conference for Women that morning, the renowned human rights lawyer, 40, spoke out against President Donald Trump for mocking Christine Blasey Ford‘s testimony that Brett Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers — which Kavanaugh has denied.

“A president shouldn’t ridicule a woman who courageously comes forward to allege abuse,” Clooney said during the conference, according to Philadelphia Magazine.

Earlier this month, Trump sarcastically mimicked Ford’s testimony against Kavanaugh at a rally in Mississippi, riling a crowd that applauded and laughed along.

“How did you get home? ‘I don’t remember.’ How did you get there? ‘I don’t remember.’ Where is the place? ‘I don’t remember.’ How many years ago was it? ‘I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know,’ ” Trump said, acting out a misrepresentation of Ford’s testimony during the hearing.

“Survivors in any country deserve the chance to look their abusers in the eye and for history to record what has happened to them,” Clooney added during the speech, reported the Daily Mail.

The mother of two also opened up about the importance of the #MeToo movement during her speech.

“We are living through a moment of reckoning and a rebalancing of power,” she said, according to Philadelphia Magazine, calling the movement “a defining moment in the struggle for women’s rights.”

“There is still much for us to do. Still, I am optimistic,” she added.

Following her speech, Clooney received a standing ovation.

Clooney previously spoke out against Trump in 2016, arguing that his public beliefs didn’t represent true “U.S. values.”

“I’m probably as perplexed as you are as somebody viewing these things,” she told the BBC. “There’s an ad on the TV in the U.S. where they went through all these statements he made against women and you watch that and you think ‘Gosh.’ ”

Clooney, whose parents are Muslim, also said Trump should be more challenged about his views on Muslims.

“When you listen to what the leading candidate on the Republican side has been saying about building walls, about excluding Mexicans and a complete shutdown of all Muslims entering in, and if you actually look at what he specifically said in that now infamous speech about Muslims, he kept saying, ‘They only want jihad. They don’t believe in our way of life. They don’t respect our system.’

“And when he says ‘they’ and you watch the media coverage afterwards, people, I think, should have been saying ‘Do you mean the 1.5 billion people around the world who fit that description? Do you mean the people who are U.S. citizens who are members of your military who are, the vast majority of whom are not violent or extremists in any way?’ ”

Amal’s husband, actor George Clooney, also wasn’t in attendance at the royal wedding on Friday, but luckily his tequila did make it to the celebration.

George, who co-founded the tequila company Casamigos (and sold it last year), has a surprising connection to the newlyweds: Eugenie’s husband Jack Brooksbank is the U.K. brand ambassador for the business.

According to Business Insider, Jack will be “in charge of choosing drinks” throughout the weekend, which will includes a selection of Casamigos cocktails.

The Clooneys made an appearance at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s wedding in May.

Kim Kardashian: Ready to Leave Kanye Over MAGA Madness?

Perhaps you've spent the past 24 hours trapped under a rock in a remote forest with especially crappy wi-fi.

If so, we'd like to both congratulate you on your escape and warn you that your return to society is about to be made bittersweet, at best:

Mr. MAGA

Yes, Kanye West paid a visit to the White House yesterday, and the ensuing madness made almost everything else Yeezy has done over the course of his bonkers career look downright quaint by comparison.

(Notice we said "almost." Referring to slavery as "a choice" is still tough to top in terms of batsh-t insanity.) 

There are too many insane quotes to catalog here, but suffice it to say, Kanye said his MAGA hat makes him feel like Superman, which in turn makes him want to play catch with his 2-year-old son.

Kanye with Passion

He then referred to himself as a crazy motherf--ker and basically admitted that he didn't vote for Hillary because she's a woman.

He capped the whole thing off by coming around the president's desk and hugging him, while Trump did that crossed arms, half smile thing he does when he's experiencing an emotion other than anger at the poors or anger at "the elites." 

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive. That was quite something," Trump said in response to Yeezus' sermon, proving that the whole thing was a bit much even for the most effective agent of chaos the nation has ever known.

Kanye in the White House

Of course, we all knew Trump would blow a bunch of smoke up his new buddy's ass. 

No surprise there.

The reaction we're really interested in is that of Kanye's long-suffering wife, Kim Kardashian.

According to a new report from Radar Online, Kim was "horrified" by her husband's Oval Office tirade.

Kanye with Trump

An insider tells the site that the mother of three no longer feels safe in her own home and “has been getting threats" ever since the rant went viral.

"It has come to the point where she feels unsafe and fears for her safety and that of the kids," the source adds.

Rumors of Kim and Kanye getting divorced have been circulating for years, but they've never seemed more credible than right now.

Confessional Time

Sources describe the marriage as “extremely strained,” noting that Kanye is moving to Chicago soon, and Kim has no plans to follow him.

“She just cannot handle another breakdown,” one insider says.

We can't blame her for feeling stressed, but it's important to point out that Kanye made a good point or two amidst all that nonsense.

Very Serious Kimye

"There's a lot of things that affect our mental health that make us do crazy things," West opined at one point.

To be fair, we can't think of a single statement that more accurately encapsulates life in 2018.

It's just the sort of thing we wish he had tweeted instead of shouting to a bunch of reporters in the Oval Office while Kid Rock stood in the foyer waiting to offer his two cents.

Kanye West Wing: Kanye Had a Crazy Meeting With President Trump in the Oval Office

If there’s one thing I need more of in my life, it’s Kanye West. I really want to like Kanye because he was so good at knowing how much George Bush cared about black people, but he seems less good at identifying the level of caring about black people presidents have as he’s gotten older. I say this because West was in the Oval Office to meet with Donald Trump to talk about prison reform, something Donald Trump could not care less about.

Let me tell you a little bit about the Central Park Five. In 1989, a woman jogging in Central Park was attacked, raped, and nearly died, spending almost two weeks in a coma. Five young men, four black and one Latino, all under the age of 16, were rounded up by the police and coerced into confessing to committing the rape. DNA collected at the scene didn’t match any of the children and all came from a single person, but they were all convicted and spent years in jail. Before their trials, Donald Trump bought a full page ad in the New York Daily News calling for the death penalty to be reinstated, making obvious references to the assault. In 2016, after their convictions had been vacated because the actual perpetrator confessed, Donald Trump still insisted they were guilty.

No matter how cool Kanye West feels in his MAGA hat (he said it makes him feel like Superman), Donald Trump isn’t going to suddenly spearhead prison reform because Donald Trump doesn’t care about black people. You used to know when a president didn’t care about black people, Kanye, what happened, man?

One of the more interesting things to come out of the meeting is that Kanye West’s iPhone password is 000000. Seriously. If you ever find Kanye’s phone, you can unlock it but just hitting 0 until it unlocks. Just don’t expect any other famous rappers to answer your texts.

Here’s how Kanye describes meeting Kanye, according to the New York Times.

“You are tasting a fine wine,” Mr. West said, praising himself. “It has complex notes to it.”

I love that so much. It’s the kind of thing only a lunatic would say. And I’m not saying that Kanye liking Trump has anything to do with mental illness, it doesn’t. Kanye is rich, of course he likes Republicans now. At one point West said “We can empower the pharmaceuticals and make more money.” That’s all you need to know, Kanye thinks big pharma guys like Martin Shkreli need to be empowered to make more money. Of course he’s a Republican.
