We haven’t checked in on President Ding-Dong’s war on the media lately. Let’s see what is happening in that world of stupid:

President Snowflake has announced that no one from the White House is allowed to go to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner because bitch can’t take a joke and neither can any of the gaggle of liars he keeps employed. WHY ARE YOU STILL THERE, SARAH LYING SANDERS? WHAT IS EVEN YOUR JOB? IT’S NOT LIKE YOU DO PRESS BRIEFINGS ANYMORE.

Nor does the Tweeter-in-Chief have any idea how Twitter works, despite spending all of his toilet time twatting. He dragged Twitter’s founder, Jack Dorsey, into the White House to yell at him about the fact that Obama has more followers than he does.

But despite being SO MAD at Twitter for taking away his best friends — Russian bots — President Doofus spent yesterday morning twit-screaming at the people on the teevees and The New York Times whom he fantasized genuflecting in front of him.

At least Morning Joe had a sense of humor about it:

For those of us in Texas, our one slightly-not-hideously-embarrassing senator decided that he needed to go ahead and destroy any shred of dignity or respect he might have by trying to play Trump’s game.

So comedian Patton Oswalt had the temerity to be in an ad for MJ Hegar, a Democrat and military vet, who plans to against John Cornyn for Senate in 2020:

In response, Cornyn’s campaign Twitter account decided to go after Patton Oswalt for ~GASP~ using bad words.

stunned shocked gasp

It didn’t go over well. The ratio on the first tweet, last I checked, was 600 likes to nearly 10,000 comments.

Bless their a*******g hearts.

But speaking of offensive behavior, Y’ALL NEED TO KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OF PODRICK. AND FIND SOME JESUS.

If you were hoping for a new Daredevil or Jessica Jones series in 2020, I have some bad news. Disney’s lawyers have been warned by Netflix’s, presumably, that they aren’t allowed to even start developing new series based on the Marvel characters until the two-year waiting period that began at the series’ cancelation ends.

This aggressive posture might be coming from Netflix because they stand to lose some 9 million subscribers in November when Disney+ goes online.

The Academy of Motion Pictures is not going to change its rules to punish Netflix, after all. Oh, and Steven Spielberg? He loves Netflix, you guys, you got this whole thing wrong.

We have a new Jeopardy! millionaire.

That one time when The Ramones were on Live with Regis and Kathie Lee!

Robert Durst is going to trial for murdering Susan Berman, and his attorneys are dragging the documentary filmmakers who made The Jinx into it, claiming they manipulated the edit to make it look like he confessed. Everything about this batshit insane case fascinates me and not just because Robert Durst peed all over the candy in my CVS this one time.

Now Jussie Smollett’s lawyers are being sued by the guys who allegedly staged the attack. What a mess.

Stay well, Britney Spears! We’re rooting for you!

David Milch, the creator of Deadwood, has revealed his has Alzheimer’s. Take care of yourself, Mr. Milch.
