+ Anthony Scaramucci Called Me to Unload About White House Leakers, Reince Priebus, and Steve Bannon. Well this is it. This is the most insane motherfucking thing you’ll read for at least the next 30 minutes. If we’re lucky!
+ Rep. Waters Brings a Photo of Trump Mocking a Disabled Reporter to the House Floor. “Waters spoke next to the enlarged photo as she commemorated the 27th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act a day earlier.” Someone fan me please.
+ Chief Boy Scout Executive Apologized for Trump’s Jamboree Speech I just typed those words wow. And here’s a refresher on that speech, should you need it.
+ Mike Pence Once Wrote an Op-Ed Calling Mulan Liberal Propoganda which I’m sure you’ve already seen float by on various social platforms but it’s just too good and I need it here for posterity.
+ Jeff Flake’s Gamble. Eh.
+ Let’s all preorder the book! What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton.
+ That Time NPR Did Not Consider All Things: “What a flubbed abortion-access story can teach us about the “fake news” era.” So much respect for this perfect headline.
+ Dancing With the Devils We Know: What the CDC’s New ‘Intimate Partner Violence’ Report Tells Us About the Value of Black Women. Another perfect headline, but in a different way. Lots to take in today.
+ Zoë and the Trolls. “Video-game designer Zoë Quinn survived Gamergate, an act of web harassment with world-altering implications.”
Saw This, Thought of You
+ I Don’t Want to Watch Slavery Fan Fiction by your fave and mine, Roxane Gay.
+ Twitter’s Astro Poets Are Getting a Book Deal. LET THE RECORD SHOW THAT I DID NOT FOLLOW THIS HEADLINE WITH THE PHRASE “I guess you could say the stars aligned.” THANK YOU.
Whew take a fucking break. Lordess help us.
