A man attacked a news station here in Texas because 2018.

This morning a crazy man drove his truck into a local Fox station in Dallas, placed a suspicious package at their door and began distributing papers all over the place while screaming about “high treason.” More reporting suggests that this was about an officer-involved shooting and not about the media in particular. So calm down, everyone! Nothing to worry about! Everything is fine! This is normal now!

In completely unrelated news, the President of Twitter is SO MAD about Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, Fear: Trump in the White House, and is having yet another twantrum:

He’s so mad, he’s retweeting himself (because I suspect this was the first time he saw these tweets):

If you haven’t read some of the pieces about what the book claims, do yourself a favor and do that now. Woodward will have his first interview on CBS Sunday Morning this weekend.

President Worms for Brains also attacked Chuck Todd for some reason?

And as I’m sure you know, Nike decided to wade into the culture war by making Colin Kaepernick the face of their Just Do It campaign, infuriating racists everywhere. Dummies are busy cutting the swooshes off of their socks and setting their shoes on fire, and obviously, Racial-Firestarter-in-Chief couldn’t resist taking the bait:

But TWIST!

“The National Football League believes in dialogue, understanding and unity. We embrace the role and responsibility of everyone involved with this game to promote meaningful, positive change in our communities,” said Jocelyn Moore, the NFL’s Executive Vice President of Communications and Public Affairs in a statement. “The social justice issues that Colin and other professional athletes have raised deserve our attention and action.”

And all of this would be mildly amusing if the Republican-held Senate weren’t right this second trying to cram through a nomination for the Supreme Court without releasing hundreds of thousands of his documents, after unconstitutionally holding a Democratic President’s Supreme Court nominee hostage, and while the man who nominated him is not just an unindicted co-conspirator in a crime but actually committed an impeachable offense on his Twitter account by demanding that the Justice Department not prosecute political allies. JUST TWO DAYS AGO:

It’s enough to make you put on your Handmaid’s costume and get arrested, right Piper Perabo?

After the whole “Look at this Cosby Show actor working at Trader Joe’s” kerfuffle, Geoffrey Owens had to quit said Trader Joe’s job. Fortunately, there are people out there like Tyler Perry who are willing to step up and offer him a role, and hopefully there will be more on the way.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse just released their first proper trailer (see below in Dates), so now’s as good a time as any to remind yourself where all the characters in “Murder House” and “Coven” left off.

If you were wondering if Rick and Neegan are BFFs now …

Who at ABC thought Colton as The Bachelor would be well-received? I want names.

This video is a perfect love letter to The Office.

Heads up, Doctor Who and Little Miss-Mister Man book fans.

Apparently, there was going to be a Rick & Morty pop-up bar in Washington D.C., but it wasn’t official and the guys behind it were threatened with a lawsuit by Cartoon Network. So now, obviously, clearly, GWAR is going to go into the bar and destroy a bunch of potentially copyright-infringing Rick & Morty art as a performance piece and the world is a really weird place.

Speaking of: “’Imagine, bears aren’t idiots,’” said Dmitri S. Peskov, Mr. Putin’s press secretary, a studio guest, when asked if trips into the mountains were dangerous. “’If they see Putin, they will behave properly.’”

You don’t have to worry about Princess Carole’s career anymore, Bethenny, she’s found a new job.

Fox just signed a deal that will bring more boxing to the network. Super.

The Super Bowl will be streamed all over the place, apparently.

Sex Monster News

Boy, this Ronan Farrow/NBC fight … Farrow responded to Andy Lack’s report claiming that his Weinstein story wasn’t ready …

And was backed up by his producer Rich McHugh …

… as well as Emily Nestor, a Weinstein Company assistant and one of Weinstein’s accusers who had agreed to be interviewed on camera, contrary to NBC and Andy Lack’s claims:

Additionally, Megyn Kelly — an NBC employee — confirms that Farrow had Rose McGowan on the record, contradicting NBC’s claims.

And turning this into a true circus, President Grab ‘Em by the Pussy has decided that he cares about sexual harassment all of a sudden and decided to tweet-threaten NBC’s broadcasting license over it. I hate 2018.

2018 is garbage.

Speaking of, Asia Argento is not going to pay her accuser the remainder of his shut up money. She’s also accusing him of assaulting her.

Rose McGowan is not happy with you either, Asia.

Meanwhile, a trio of men has just been let off the hook by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office. Congratulations, Anthony Anderson, Steven Seagal, and Kevin Spacey. For now.

Bill Cosby’s star was vandalized. GOOD.

Matt Lauer needs to fuck right off.
