Hey, that lying fuckwit Trump is tweeting about fake news again.

Someone was up early watching The Today Show and Good Morning America and he did not like what he saw.

Another day, another angry tweet attacking the free press for doing their damn jobs. Here’s the thing about this particular tweet: leaving aside calling reputable news outlets “fake,” there is nothing “so-called” about the Russia story. All 17 intelligence agencies agree that the Russians attempted to manipulate the election (to what degree they were successful is unclear). FBI Director James Comey admitted to Congress on Monday that the FBI is and has been investigating — since this summer — whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to influence the election. Breitbart and Infowars are both under investigation for possibly working with the Russians to spread actual fake news during the election. And it was just revealed that Paul Manafort, Trump’s campaign manager for six crucial months, had been paid millions of dollars to advance Putin’s agenda in the United States.

This is just skimming the surface of the Russian story: that’s leaving aside Mike Flynn and Roger Stone and Rex Tillerson and Carter Page and Jeff Sessions and Jared Kushner and the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and Devin Nunes’ weird behavior yesterday trying to pretend that he found proof that Obama had wiretapped Trump when all he did was confirm that people in the Trump administration had been caught up in foreign intercepts WHICH IS NOT A GOOD THING FOR THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION and the pee dossier and Trump asking that the Russians hack Hillary Clinton and the GOP’s sudden removal of their pledge of support for Ukraine on their official platform and the administration turning on NATO and Trump’s many connections to Russian oligarchs and his repeated refusal to ever criticize Vladimir Putin FOR ANYTHING EVER and my point is that all of this amounts to something just a smidge bigger than a “so-called” story, you fucking liar.

Interestingly, ABC News, one of Trump’s twitter targets, was hacked on Twitter this morning with pro-Trump messages:

What is most interesting about this hack is the part where they call CNN “real news” considering that their “lord and savior” just tweeted this three days ago:

Speaking of Fox, in a completely outrageous interview with Time Magazine that was published this morning, and in which Trump literally said, “I can’t be doing so badly, because I’m president, and you’re not,” he tries to place the blame of his outrageous and false claims that President Obama wiretapped him in the lap of Fox News.

Why do you say that I have to apologize? I’m just quoting the newspaper, just like I quoted the judge the other day, Judge Napolitano, I quoted Judge Napolitano, just like I quoted Bret Baier, I mean Bret Baier mentioned the word wiretap. Now he can now deny it, or whatever he is doing, you know. But I watched Bret Baier, and he used that term. I have a lot of respect for Judge Napolitano, and he said that three sources have told him things that would make me right. I don’t know where he has gone with it since then. But I’m quoting highly respected people from highly respected television networks.

Um …

Full stop.

Late Night Takes

Seth Meyers is concerned that all this Russia/wiretapping news is overshadowing another political crime: the confirmation hearings of Judge Gorsuch (a subject I literally can not think about or talk about without blood pouring out of my eyes).

Hey, remember that Russian ambassador I mentioned above?

Jimmy Kimmel has some thoughts on Paul Manafort’s “very limited role” to the Trump campaign:

Meanwhile, Stephen Colbert is concerned that he’s missing out on awesome sex scandals thanks to Trump:

And Samantha Bee would like to introduce you to the Nazi advisor to Trump:

In other TV news

Netflix is ditching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Angel, and The X-Files in April, so binge up, Joss Whedon fans. In the wake of this news, is Hulu turning out to be a better bet than Netflix for TV fans now that Netflix is ditching old TV series to make room for original content?

The Daytime Emmy nominations have come out and General Hospital and The Young and the Restless lead the pack because THEY ARE THE ONLY SOAP OPERAS LEFT ON TELEVISION.

Fox has set their summer premiere dates for Andy Cohen’s Love Connection, So You Think You Can Dance and other shows.

This is going to come as a surprise, but women are less represented on the news than men.

William Shatner hates This Asshole as much as I do, and is waging a one-man war to get him eliminated from Dancing with the Stars, and it is giving me LIFE.

Meanwhile, Kristi Yamaguchi told Nancy Kerrigan to “break a leg” on Dancing with the Stars.


Here’s your first look at the final season of Orphan Black.

Game of Thrones is getting its own game.

Here’s the original script from Ramsay Bolton’s Stannis Baratheon death scene, in case your life just was incomplete without it. Oh, and spoiler alert for those of you just starting Game of Thrones, but Ramsay Bolton Stannis Baratheon dies. (Ramsay Bolton also dies.)

Are you ready for the 17-day Power Rangers marathon that begins on something called Twitch tomorrow? WELL GET READY.

CHIPs star Larry Wilcox is pretty sure you’re going to hate the CHIPs movie that is coming out.

Kim Richards update: She’s missed the deadline to complete 20 hours of community service and attend 52 Alcohol Anonymous meetings and now she needs to do 450 hours of community service before September. Oh, girl.
