NYT: Corrupt right-wing Trump crony Netanyahu was just handed a fifth (fourth consecutive) term as PM of Israel. The U.S. will not make that same mistake twice, let alone five times. Shameful.

YOUTUBE: Point Leadership Award winner Gus Kenworthy said, during his acceptance speech:
I wish that I had the courage to be myself when I was in high school .. but it took me many years to get to that point. The adolescent years of a queer person's life are not easy. They involve a great deal of stress and anxiety. We often face ridicule and we fear torment. My time spent in the closet is a blur of depression and anxiety. While not everything was bad during those years — I turned professional in my sport, I graduated high school, made my first Olympic team and won my first Olympic medal (thanks) — I can honestly say that I didn't really enjoy those moments to their fullest because I truly wasn't present for them.
Sad and shocking, considering how at ease he is now, but Kenworthy says he wished more than anything he was straight the first year he was killing it at the Olympics. People who think we're post-gay are so misguided. More here:
