Your idiot president commemorates D-Day by whining about Rachel Maddow.

Happy D-Day from your president!

I mean, sure, it’s the 75th anniversary of one of the most heroic days in all of history, a day when thousands of young men died in service of securing freedom for the European continent, but the real thing we need to be paying attention to is that MSNBC is not sufficiently nice to the president during his dress-up party with a bunch of British figureheads. Got it.

Oh, and by the way, President Meglomanic delayed this morning’s D-Day ceremony, leaving thousands — including 90-year-old veterans — waiting for 15 minutes so that he could give an interview to Laura Ingraham.

Taraji P. Henson and Ellen Pompeo have a fascinating conversation about acting, their career-defining roles on Empire and Grey’s Anatomy, and earning what they deserve. Of most interest: Pompeo discussing the toxic work environment on Grey’s for 10 SEASONS, and Henson’s worry as a Black woman portraying a character like Cookie. Really good stuff.

Y’all should probably not travel to Chernobyl. That’s probably a bad idea.

Yes, those are Nine Inch Nails songs in Black Mirror and in fact, Nine Inch Nails is even selling T-shirts.

Alec Baldwin will be the target of Comedy Central’s next roast. This seems fitting.

We officially spend more time on our phones than watching TV.

I assume that if you don’t have cable or streaming services, you probably don’t read this blog, but in the event that you don’t and you have heard of and would like to watch The Other Two, it is now available for free on Comedy Central’s digital site. If you haven’t seen this wonderful little comedy about fame and family, I highly recommend it.

The documentary about the super secret final season of Game of Thrones was a super secret of its own.

As I mentioned a few days ago, When They See Us has shone a bright light on Linda Fairstein, the lawyer who prosecuted the Central Park Five. Since the miniseries has debuted on Netflix — less than a week ago — she has had to resign from a number of boards she was on as the hashtag #CancelLindaFairstein has been gaining traction on Twitter. It should be noted that Fairstein had been living her life as a successful author even after the controversial convictions were overturned in 2002. This is an interesting piece about why Felicity Huffman’s performance helped make the difference, and how ironic it is that one of Huffman’s most important performances has been overshadowed by her own scandal involving inequity.

Sex Monster News

Add Madonna to the list of people Harvey Weinstein was gross with. (Although compared to the other stories involving Weinstein, this is a relative nothing probably because Madonna is too powerful a target.)

The rape investigation against Gerard Depardieu has been dropped by Paris prosecutors.

Gretchen Carlson has stepped down as the board chairman of the Miss America organization. That didn’t last long.

Conan has the solution to men grabbing microphones from women:
