Nyle DiMarco's Deal + Resigning Woman Mary Trump + COVID-19 Vaccine News + Pence vs. CDC + Alabama Dems On FIRE + MORE! — 12-PACK Comments (0)

ABOVE: It was definitely good form of Leitner Winstead to preserve that big chunk of movie herstory!

BELOW: Keep reading for a possible COVID-19 vaccine, Trump's niece taking a hatchet to his ego, Nyle DiMarco's new deal (hey, Joe Biden's got one of those, too!), Tyra Banks's new job, and why Ivanka Trump ain't worth a hill of beans  ...

FORBES: Congrats to Nyle DiMarco on selling a scripted comedy about a Deaf man to Spectrum.

YOUTUBE: Above — watch Mary Trump, Don the Con's niece, speak out in her first sit-down interview about her new book. She comes off as a straight shooter, and I would gather she wasn't exactly a raging liberal prior to 2016. 

POLITICO: Peter Navarro, Trump's absolutely outrageously extremist advisor, has written an anti-Fauci op-ed. The White House has tried to distance itself from Navarro, but — really? Trump fuckin' loves this guy, and he's already retweeted anti-Fauci propaganda.

CBS NEWS: Speaking of dangerously ill-equipped con artists, Trump says he would welcome Michael Flynn back into the White House. (Better hurry!)

TWITTER: Jesus, if Obama's skin had been darker would the backlash have been even more severe?! Pence — the VP — literally said:

We don't want CDC guidance to be a reason why, why people don't reopen their schools.

Really?! Sarah-gilbert-astrazeneca-covid19-coronavirus-boyculture-vaccineWe don't want science-based warnings from the CDC to cause health-conscious decisions to be made? We are so far down the plank. Every single day feels like an inch closer to the end of it.

BLOOMBERG: Sarah Gilbert is leading a University of Oxford candidate for the COVID-19 vaccine that is on track to possibly be done with human trails sometime in September. British firm AstraZeneca is ready to have 2 billion doses created on a not-for-profit basis.

By when? Maybe winter ... maybe.

CNN: Even evil Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) is now admitting the pandemic is real, saying at a Mt. Vernon, Kentucky, hospital Tuesday:

Well, regretfully, my friends, it's not over. We're seeing a surge in Florida and Texas and Arizona and yes, here in Kentucky.

NYT: Pandemic expert sounds the alarm that the U.S. must endure a more comprehensive, country-wide shutdown in order to get COVID-19 under control:

This is our second chance. We won’t get a third. If we don’t get the growth of this pandemic under control now, in a few months, when the weather turns cold and forces people to spend more time indoors, we could face a disaster that dwarfs the situation today.

This won't happen, of course, because Trump has stripped the CDC of any power.

CURT AND FRANK: Incredibly, Ivanka Trump is openly providing free advertising for Goya after its CEO provided free advertising for her dad. I really want this bitch in prison.

HUFF POST: Alabama Republicans rejected Jeff Sessions in the primary race for his old Senate seat. Though I'm glad that Sessions was further humiliated — he's a racist Trumper who got thumped by Trump — it is going to be tough for Sen. Doug Jones (D-Alabama) to fend off the man who beat Sessions, former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville. (Yes, in Alabama, coaching football = being a senator. Same/same!)

Still, there is hope. Polling shows Jones and Tuberville tied, and the Twitter account for Alabama's Democratic Party is on fire, trashing Tuberville's loyalty, ethics and — gasp! — coaching:

NPR: Sara Gideon has won the Democratic primary in Maine, setting her up to possibly — probably? — topple longtime concerned citizen Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine).

Sara-gideon-boycultureGideon's got this. (Image via video still)

EXTRATV: Tom Bergeron really got screwed! He was kicked off Dancing with the Stars and will be replaced by Tyra Banks — who will also get executive producer action.
