Let’s talk about ‘Westworld’ because I am not yet in the mood to talk about disappointing men, ERIC SCHNEIDERMAN

Thanks to disgusting men like Eric Schneiderman (whom we will get to), all women are feeling a little bit like Woke “KILL ‘EM ALL” Dolores these days, so let’s start with Sunday’s bloody and satisfying Westworld episode.

First of all, to all my Losties, did you recognize Colonel Brigham?

 

PETA is SO MAD about those elephants in this week’s Westworld, but HBO is all, “Pffft.”

Some adroit Redditor found out about RajWorld back in February. And here’s what you need to know about it.

OK, THIS IS JUST A VERY GOOD WESTWORLD THEORY. Who knows? Many a TV theory has been blown out of the water in the past, but I happen to like this one.

This Brian does not like this season of Westworld but I happen to agree with this Brian.

In non-Westworld news, here’s a curious Game of Thrones spoiler. What’s [SPOILER] doing at [SPOILER]?

And, wait, [SPOILER] isn’t dead on Fear the Walking Dead?

Not even the head of Netflix can keep up with Netflix.

Speaking of Netflix, here is our first look at the last Sense8.

A guide to all the Meghan Markle specials headed your way in the next 10 days or so.

Yes, it looks like Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is going to go there. Do not read if you want to remain unspoiled for Avengers: Infinity War.

It’s time for same-sex partners on Dancing with the Stars.

The Office is going to be a musical, because why not.

Fun Fact That I Did Not Know: Nasim Pedrad has a sister who is a producer on Will & Grace and New Girl and was a writer on 30 Rock.

Your reminder that Ken Jeong is a doctor.

For those of you who don’t have Netflix or who have been dragging your heels about watching the John Mulaney special, here’s the “best political joke of the Trump era”:

After the apparently historic 2011 White House Correspondent’s Dinner, Seth Meyers invited Trump to appear on his show. Michael Cohen told Meyers Trump would only do so if Meyers would offer Trump an on-air apology for his WHCD jokes, and Meyers was all, “Yeah, fuck off with that.”

It’s almost cute that Joe Piscopo is clutching his pearls over Stormy Daniels being on Saturday Night Live (almost), and worrying what he will tell his children as if somehow it’s SNL’s fault Donald Trump fucked a porn star and then paid her a six-figure sum to shut her up on the eve of the election. Did he also get mad at The Washington Post when the Access Hollywood tape came out?

Time’s Up Motherfuckers

Fucking Eric Schneiderman. The New York State Attorney General, who was one of the prosecutors leading the charge against Harvey Weinstein and who was a thorn in Donald Trump’s side for years and who was supposed to be the gatekeeper for state charges against Trump and his cronies — charges that he wouldn’t be able to pardon away as President, was exposed as being a physically and emotionally abusive sex goblin:

They allege that he repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent. Manning Barish and Selvaratnam categorize the abuse he inflicted on them as “assault.” They did not report their allegations to the police at the time, but both say that they eventually sought medical attention after having been slapped hard across the ear and face, and also choked. Selvaratnam says that Schneiderman warned her he could have her followed and her phones tapped, and both say that he threatened to kill them if they broke up with him.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg with this asshole. Three hours after the story was published, Schneiderman resigned, but still claims that he did nothing wrong, that it was just “role-playing.”

Schneiderman, a prominent Democrat, is a reminder that no one party has a clean record on this issue — there are gross sex monsters in both political parties. That said, there is a difference in how the parties have responded in the wake of #MeToo: as noted in this case, Harvey Weinstein’s and Al Franken’s, the Democrats are not tolerating abusers or harassers while Republicans continue to support pedophiles, kidnappers and rapists — so long as they are Republican.

PRO TIP TO ALL MEN: If Ronan Farrow starts sniffing around and asking questions, just go ahead and resign. Just cop to whatever the fuck horrible thing you did and walk away. (And can we just talk about how weird it is that Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra’s son [who was raised by Woody Allen] has become the greatest journalist of our moment? This timeline, it is strange.)

Two more women have stepped forward to accuse R. Kelly of basically keeping them prisoner in his home — to the point of having to ask his permission to go to the bathroom. Meanwhile, Lifetime is working on an R. Kelly documentary series and TV movie.

Speaking of TV series, Ryan Murphy wants his next anthology series to be about #MeToo.

Bill Cosby has been stripped of his Kennedy Center Honors.

Tom Sizemore is being sued by a woman who says he abused her when she was 11.
