Your president went to a rally in South Carolina yesterday to support Governor McMaster, but spent more time talking about late night hosts and his hair. He called Stephen Colbert — a native South Carolinian — a “lowlife,” and regarding Fallon with whom he’s been in the middle of a fight:
He seemed most fixated on Fallon, who recently apologized for tussling Trump’s hair in a segment that was seen by some Trump critics as too friendly.
“The guy screws up my hair, going back and forth. He was so disappointed to find out it was real, he couldn’t believe. Well, that’s one of the great things I got,” Trump said.
President Broken Brain also spent time at the rally attacking Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ratings, taking credit for Olympic ticket sales and bragging about the number of TVs he has on Air Force One. He also mentioned David Lynch saying that he could turn out to be “one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted things so much,” which, of course, he also tweeted about.
I would give Donald Trump a break for the entire year if he could name one David Lynch movie. Just one.
Covering the rally was CNN’s Jim Acosta, who was screamed at by the crowds:
Although some in the crowd asked to take selfies with him after yelling at him to go home:
And all of this is empowered by the Asshole-in-Chief:
I will never stop being shocked at the President calling the free press “the enemy of the people,” y’all. It will never stop being horrifying to me. And on a morning like this one, with the Supreme Court decision that the President can discriminate against groups of people for “national security” purposes (a decision on which my husband and his firm was on the losing side), Trump’s plan to do away with due process, with children being used as hostages to get their parents to agree to self-deport, with Trump supporters feeling so emboldened that they call strangers “rapists” to their faces simply because they are Hispanic, it’s hard to not feel despondent. I don’t know, guys, I might just go back to bed.
David Bossie has been suspended at Fox News for two weeks for his “cotton-picking” comment. Good.

In which Nikolaj Coster-Waldau essentially suggests that Jaime isn’t done with Cersei after all while comparing his own wife to one of the worst villainesses in TV history. Boy, you’re going to be in trouble.
Game of Thrones was determined as hell to not let season 8 leak, and used everything from self-destructing scripts to earpieces to make sure it didn’t happen. Meanwhile, Coster-Waldau over here is just giving things away.
In the past two weeks, we have learned that one Bachelorette contestant was found guilty of sexually assaulting a woman and one Proposal contestant was accused of facilitating the rape of a woman and Mike Fleiss’s response is “I mean, what am I supposed to do about it?” Seriously, dude, what the fuck is going on over at The Bachelor offices? Have you guys ever heard of background checks? What are y’all doing over there all day?
In more positive Bachelor news, hey, remember Kenny Pretty Boy Pitbull from last year’s Bachelorette? He’s promoting some sort of wrestling on-demand subscription here, but it sounds like he’s doing well!
