Hey, remember that time The Baby-in-Chief called ‘Beautiful Ted’ a pussy?

As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, President Unconvincing Combover came to my fair town yesterday to hold a rally for Senator Grandpa Munster, a man he just a couple of years ago called “nasty,” unlikable, a “pussy,” and, of course, most famously, “Lyin’ Ted,” as The Daily Show helpfully reminded us:

These clips don’t even get into the times Trump attacked Heidi Cruz’s looks and hinting at something much darker about her past, or how he accused Senator Blob Fish’s father of assassinating JFK, an accusation that Trump does not regret making, by the way:

In fact, the full quote was: “I don’t regret anything, honestly. It all worked out, very nicely.”

But now Trump is calling Lyin’ Ted “Beautiful Ted,” which honestly is some of the shadiest shade I’ve ever heard.

Anyway, this is just a reminder, Texans, that Beautiful Ted co-sponsored a bill to kill the ACA, including coverage for pre-existing conditions; he’s opposed to raising the minimum wage at all, much less to a living wage; is vehemently opposed to a woman’s right to choose and a co-chair of his “Pro-Lifers for Cruz” coalition once advocated for murdering doctors who perform abortions; voted against hurricane relief aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy; has promised to filibuster any legislation that might curb gun violence; was the person most responsible for the government shutdown in 2013; wants to deport DREAMers; believes homosexuality is a choice and is opposed to same-sex marriage; voted against the Violence Against Women Act; opposes legalizing pot; opposes net neutrality; and doesn’t believe we should try to do anything about climate change.

But good news, Texas, you can go vote RIGHT NOW. DO IT. GO VOTE.

Shep Smith dropping some truth on Fox News about the migrant caravan that President Old Racist (and Fox News itself) is using to gin up fear and hysteria ahead of the midterms. “President Trump is calling the caravan a national emergency,” Smith said. “And he’s claiming criminals and unknown alleged Middle Easterners are mixed in with the crowd. An important note: Fox News knows of no evidence to suggest the president is accurate on that matter. And the president has offered no evidence to support what he has said.”

Meanwhile, in other corners of Fox News, Senator Kamala Harris’ face was plastered on a story about a murder that had absolutely nothing to do with her. They literally used her picture instead of the murderers. These assholes.

I mean, I get it: The Good Place‘s natural audience is not people who are really into sportsball, but even I knew Blake Bortles was real, you guys, and I know NOTHING about sportsball.

Welp, we know when Andrew Lincoln is leaving The Walking Dead. Not this week, but next:

In which Vanity Fair thinks waaaaaay too hard about a Game of Thrones reunion special.

This is an interesting featurette on the sixth episode of The Haunting of Hill House and how they made that one long take:

I have two pieces of news here: 1. Wheel of Fortune is going to give away a house in one of Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville retirement communities to one viewer — not player, viewer aged 55 or older. 2. There are Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville retirement communities. Actually, I have three pieces of news here: 3. There are enough people out there who love Jimmy Buffett’s music so much that they literally want to live inside of it and, in fact, don’t regard it as a personal hell.

Netflix is racially profiling you. They claim they’re not, but they are.

The most adorable caption mix-up ever.

If you’re looking for a good horror movie as we get closer to Halloween, Netflix has a few.

Ryan Murphy is donating $10 million to the children’s hospital that saved his four-year-old son:

I’d like you to meet Ford Theodore Miller Murphy. Today is a big day in his and our family’s lives. Two years ago, this sweet little innocent boy with a deep belly laugh and an obsession with Monster Trucks was diagnosed with neuroblastoma…an often fatal pediatric cancer. Ford’s cancer — an abdominal tumor the size of a tennis ball — was found during a normal check up by his brilliant pediatrician Dr. Lauren Crosby @drlaurencrosby. From there, Ford has undergone a huge surgery and several difficult procedures. My better half, David Miller, was a rock through this — strong and patient and loving (I was always a trembling wreck). Ford was strong as well, and today he is thriving. He just celebrated his fourth birthday, a milestone we are all so thrilled about. Ford is doing so well because of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles @childrensla. Today at the hospital we are donating a wing in tribute to Ford and our family is making a gift of $10 million dollars so that other children can experience the love and care of this exceptional facility. No child is turned away at Children’s Hospital. We are so honored and lucky to contribute, and encourage everybody who can to do the same. We love you, Ford. 📸 credit: @dcmphoto.biz

Congratulations, Amy Schumer!

Time’s Up

Sarah Silverman admitted that Louis C.K. masturbated in front of her with her consent, but says that it was early in both of their careers and there was no weird power dynamic, and therefore it wasn’t abusive. She added, “Once he became powerful, even within just his [comedy] community, he felt like he was the same person, but the dynamic was different and it was not OK.”

Pajiba‘s Mike Redmond has some thoughts on why this story is not helpful.

Louis C.K.’s accuser Rebecca Corry took exception to Silverman’s comments:

Prompting an apology from Silverman:

Jill Soloway (who is apparently dating Hannah Gadsby now) recently published a memoir but declined to attack Jeffrey Tambor in it. Here she sort of explains that decision. Sort of.

Kevin Spacey has been removed from a restaurant mural and replaced with Clive Davis.

Bill Cosby has just hired his 12th law firm and 20th lawyer. That’s a lot of lawyers.
