I Really Don’t Care About Melania’s Jacket. Do U?

  The gals back at the best little whorehouse in Slovenia must be having a good chuckle at the recent antics of their most successful graduate Melania Trump, who recently trolled the world in a major way. Or did she. And do we care. And does it matter. These are the questions de jour. Trump boarded a plane […] The post I Really Don’t Care About Melania’s Jacket. Do U? appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   The gals back at the best little whorehouse in Slovenia must be having a good chuckle at the recent antics of their most successful graduate Melania Trump, who recently trolled the world in a major way. Or did she. And do we care. And does it matter. These are the questions de jour. Trump boarded a plane heading to the border town of McAllen, TX (and later while deplaning back at home) while wearing a last season Zara jacket. Yikes. There’s the real crime. For those who don’t know, Zara is like if the designers at H&M consulted with a used condom to create their collections. The jacket retails for $39 and was most likely crafted by children that have it worse than the ones Melania was focusing on in McAllen. The real news is of course that the jacket has text scrawled across the back – as all the classiest jackets do – that reads “I Really Don’t Care. Do U?” Considering the potential human rights violations involving the separating of young children from their asylum-seeking parents that Melania was walking into, some h8ers feel the jacket is insensitive. After a pithy Twitter meme uproar, Melania’s reps denied that the text had any meaning outside of being a stunning fashion statement: It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today’s important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe.     It’s like if Macy Gray at the MTV VMA’s asked us to not read into her equally subdued fashion statement. But Melania’s people got their PR wires crossed with President Trump, who stated that the Zara jacket did indeed have a deeper meaning: “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!   “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 21, 2018 Both viewpoints assume that Melania can read. I await your hate comments. Whatever the case, the fact that the US is concentrated on interpreting the significance of a $39 coat from Zara means that this country is going in the right direction. Next I want Melania to wear one of those Abercrombie & Fitch knockoff t-shirts from the 90’s scrawled with “Grababooty & Pinch.” See what The New Yorker does with that.

10 Weird City Names and Their Origins

When you grow up somewhere, you kind of become numb to all of the weird things that go on there, it’s natural. Bagged milk sounds weird to Americans, but it is perfectly normal in Canada. The same goes for the names of places around where you live (Looking at you, Piggly Wiggly). In America, there are cities like Chattanooga and Okeechobee that just sound silly to say and then there are cities like the ten you’ll read about on this list whose names make a lot less sense. Intercourse, Pennsylvania Intercourse, Pennsylvania is a real place in Lancaster County that has existed since 1814. It used to be called Cross Keys, and for some reason, Intercourse seemed to roll off the tongue a little bit better. One proposed reason for the name change has to do with a racetrack that existed just outside of the town that had a sign above it reading “Enter Course.” Locals referred to the town as such, and somehow that evolved into its current name. Whynot, North Carolina Perhaps an answer to the western city of Why, Arizona, North Carolina features a town called Whynot. The town didn’t have a name back in 1860 before this one was adopted, so when the United States Postal Service expressed their plans to put an office in the area, the townspeople knew it was time to agree on a name. To make a long story short, they couldn’t. A man caught in the crossfire of people suggesting, “Why not this?” and “Why not that?” piped up and asked this pivotal question: “Why not name the town Whynot and let’s go home?” Dinosaur, Colorado The Dinosaur National Monument is a National Monument that exists on the border between Colorado and Utah. There are hiking trails, and the opportunity to check out tons of prehistoric fossils. In an attempt to capitalize on this interesting attraction, Artesia, Colorado changed its name to Dinosaur. Not only that, they left no stone unturned when they underwent this glorious transformation. There you will also find streets like Tyrannosaurus Trail, and more. Two Egg, Florida Two Egg sounds like the punchline to a bad joke, and like most cities in Florida, it probably is. To add to that, the website features anecdotal evidence of Bigfoot’s southern cousin the Two Egg Stump Jumper. The name comes from the town’s general store where two young men used to trade two eggs for a pack of sugar. It was colloquially referred to as the “two egg store” so often that the name stuck. Because that was the only thing of note in the town at that time, it also became Two Egg. Truth or Consequences, New Mexico In 1950, radio hosts were just as big the trolls that they are today, and that is how Truth or Consequences came to be. NBC Radio host Ralph Edwards publicized a dare to all American cities, he challenged them to change their name to that of his quiz show. Formerly Hot Spring, New Mexico, this town [...] The post 10 Weird City Names and Their Origins appeared first on PopCrunch......»»

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Ryan Seacrest “Much to my dismay, Variety didn’t speak with me or bother to speak with other credible witnesses or even ask for any of the evidence that was obtained during the investigation when offered, all of which clearly challenged the veracity of the claims made against me.” “This person who has accused me of horrible things tried to buy her silence by asking for money on multiple occasions — I refused. I have worked extremely hard to achieve my success and I don’t take my opportunities for granted. I don’t want to accuse anyone of not telling the truth but in this case, I have no choice but to again deny the claims against me, remind people that I was recused of any wrongdoing, and put the matter to rest.” See Ryan‘s full statement below, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter. Much has been said about the #MeToo and Times Up movement(s) and the importance of providing women and men with the opportunity to share their stories of workplace misconduct, in an effort to change our culture and the systemic inequalities that exist. I absolutely support this cause unequivocally and applaud all the brave souls who have come forward to share their stories. Sadly, last fall I became one of the accused, which I promptly revealed proactively to the network involved and to the public. And to be equally clear, those accusations were then investigated by an independent third-party over the course of a two-month process and involved dozens of interviews that included me, the accuser and countless others. Ultimately, my name was cleared. I eagerly participated in the investigation in order to demonstrate my innocence because I know my truth, and I believe in due process. Yesterday, Variety published a salacious story that revealed the specific claims against me for the first time – even though an independent third-party investigator found insufficient evidence to support the claims. Much to my dismay, Variety didn’t speak with me or bother to speak with other credible witnesses or even ask for any of the evidence that was obtained during the investigation when offered, all of which clearly challenged the veracity of the claims made against me. This person who has accused me of horrible things tried to buy her silence by asking for money on multiple occasions — I refused. I have worked extremely hard to achieve my success and I don’t take my opportunities for granted. I don’t want to accuse anyone of not telling the truth but in this case, I have no choice but to again deny the claims against me, remind people that I was recused of any wrongdoing, and put the matter to rest......»»

In the suit, Jane Doe claims she was invited to a party at Brown's house in February 2017 where he supplied cocaine, molly, and marijuana. Doe alleges that after her phone had been taken away, an unnamed female friend of Brown's forced her and a few other women into a bedroom and blocked the door with a couch. Video: Wendy Williams CRIED For R. Kelly Because 'He Can't Read'! Once inside, Brown's female friend allegedly forced the women to hook up with the hip-hop star and another man named Lowell Grissom. Doe claims she tried to leave, but Brown's female friend grabbed her by the throat and forced her to perform fellatio on Grissom. Doe says the female friend then pushed her down on the bed and "literally sat on [Doe's] face, using her legs to pin [Doe] down while forcing [Doe] to perform oral sex on her" -- all while the woman was allegedly menstruating. Doe claims she went to the bathroom after and saw her face covered in blood. She claims that Grissom then entered the restroom while she was showering; she tried to leave, but he allegedly shoved her onto the bed and raped her.

She claims she went to a rape treatment center and reported the incident to police. [Image via Judy Eddy/WENN.].....»»

Scrapped Heathers Film Adaptation Goes International After School Shooting Craze

Pay no attention to Janie because Christian Slater’s got a gun. And he’s the reason why the Heathers film, now turned into a series, won’t be seeing a stateside release. The Paramount network planned on releasing a full 10 episodes worth of first season when it came to a rehashed Heathers project, but that was […] The post Scrapped Heathers Film Adaptation Goes International After School Shooting Craze appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Pay no attention to Janie because Christian Slater’s got a gun. And he’s the reason why the Heathers film, now turned into a series, won’t be seeing a stateside release. The Paramount network planned on releasing a full 10 episodes worth of first season when it came to a rehashed Heathers project, but that was before the Parkland shooting. Who knew that at least one side effect of a school shooting could be positive. An angel gets its wings every time a Hollywood reboot is canned. Unfortunately, Paramount was only putting up a front and refused to lose money over crisis actors, conspiracy theorist, and outcast kids treating their classmates like the opposing team in a Call of Duty Kill Confirmed match. The finished project’s release was only partially canceled. A few places that matter outside of America, in addition to some randos that don’t, still get to see all 10 episodes without an issue. Jason Micallef’s series adaptation of the ’80s cult classic was delayed and eventually scrapped by the fledgling Viacom network last month. Featuring suicides by several high school students and the destruction of a school building, the show was deemed too controversial to air on the ad-supported network in the weeks following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. In a statement, the Viacom network said its decision to hit the pause button in the series was “right thing to do.” It will instead air on HBO or its streaming service in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Spain, Andorra, Portugal, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Sao Tome & Principe. So I’m going to guess school shootings are a First World problem. Maybe Sasha Cohen was onto to something with giving kids guns. Because when you reside in a country where you’ve been a child soldier using an AK-47 longer than you’ve been able to form full sentences, random acts of violence aren’t that random. They’re the norm. Some celebrity waving a gun in school setting wouldn’t offend too many people from the list of places where the Heathers series release is being made available.

Weinstein Assistant Claims To Have Been His Official Semen Cleaner

Talk about a milkmaid. Amirite fellas. Harvey Weinstein’s former assistant Sandeep Rehal is getting in on the sue-y action by claiming that Weinstein committed a grab bag of sexual offenses towards her, which don’t necessarily read as illegal, but do read as hilarious.

Talk about a milkmaid. Amirite fellas. Harvey Weinstein’s former assistant Sandeep Rehal is getting in on the sue-y action by claiming that Weinstein committed a grab bag of sexual offenses towards her, which don’t necessarily read as illegal, but do read as hilarious. Anong other thing, Rehal claims that she recreated investigation scenes from Law and Order: SVU every time Weinstein blew his load on his couch. She would clean up his jizz stains and collect the condoms strewn about his office – with the second duty being not unlike a Hollywood insider easter egg hunt. Complete with the creamy Cadbury filling. But Rehal’s résumé goes far beyond Official Jizz Cleaner To The Stars, and she also claims to have been called lewd names by Weinstein, and to have been fondled in the car as he whispered sweet nothings into her ear like “What’s wrong Sandeep, is the tampon up too far today?” Okay now I see how he got the ladies. These allegations read like child’s play compared the information we already know about Weinstein, and his reps are already vehemently denying the information. To what avail I don’t know, since the jig’s pretty much up for Weinstein: Mr. Weinstein categorically denies these claims and his lawyers will respond in the appropriate legal forum with evidence proving they are untrue. The evidence will show these claims for money are in the realm of a science fiction movie. You know, the kind of science fiction movies in which the main character requires Caverject shots to get a boner before creaming his corn all over an ingénue’s wishful face. People will continue to throw allegations at disgraced Hollywood stars currently plummeting from the sky, and we can only hope that they’re all as colorful as o’ sticky hands Rehal’s.
