KENNETH IN THE (212): A week's worth of gay mag covers to occupy your time and, in some cases, one hand.
NEW YORKER: Schiff on Trump and his impeachment:
The President doesn’t give a shit about what’s good for our country, what’s good for Ukraine. It’s all about what’s in it for him personally and for his reëlection campaign. That is a perfect summary of this whole scheme.
GAY FLESHBOT (WORK UNFRIENDLY): Yes, that's the Instagram duo @husbandandhusband in the controversial new TGI Fridays ad. Men kissing on the TV — I'll have fries with that!
HUFF POST: Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez, a 16-year-old migrant from Guatemala, died of the flu in a Border Patrol holding cell, burned up with a 103-degree fever. He suffered immensely, and unnecessarily. Now, Border Patrol is saying his death is a death, but that he was checked on during the night — yet there is a four-hour gap in the video. This kid was murdered by the U.S. Remember his suffering any time a friend belittles what is happening at the border. People — and kids — seeking a better life are having their lives destroyed, or ended.
NYP: Papa John got served.
SOCIALITE LIFE: Jason Derulo deruled too hung for Instagram!
TODAY SHOW: Sean Hunter, the actor who plays the husband of the now-infamous exercising woman in THAT Peloton commercial is now expressing fear being recognized for this could harm his career. Sounds like he's milking the PR he's complaining about and/or setting up to sue Peloton for ... what? A mildy tone-deaf ad that just happened to be plucked out of a sea of tone-deaf ads and turned into a viral hissy fit?
GR8ERDAYS: Witch birthday would it have been?! FOLLOW HERE.
MISSISSIPPI TODAY: Hester Jackson-McCray, a black Democrat, won her November 5 election to the Mississippi House narrowly — by just 14 votes. Still, it was a win. Now, her opponent, losing white Republican Rep. Ashley Henley, is asking the court to void the win, citing the time-worn Republican talking points of voter fraud and irregularities. Because HOW COULD A BLACK WOMAN BEAT MEEEEE?
OMG.BLOG! (WORK UNFRIENDLY): Ian Somerhalder recalls watching his brother have sex.
VICE: Members of a class of corrections officers in West Virginia participated in a mock Nazi salute to their trainer, holding that pose for a photo. I should say, all members. They all thought it was a good idea. The governor of West Virginia is Jim Justice, who was elected as a Democrat in 2017, but switched to the GOP within six months. He is the single wealthiest person in the state, a coal baron with a net worth of close to $2 billion. Even he is firing mad over this.
Didn't their grandfathers fight a war against this?! (Image via West Virginia Corrections Dept.)
TWITTER: This cracked me up, and the young woman whose TikTok this is from has survived a suicide attempt three years ago:
