KENNETH IN THE (212): A weekly look at the gay mags.
Currently obsessed with Leta Powell Drake, the greatest interviewer of all time. pic.twitter.com/3oCYAd9vZD— John Frankensteiner (@JFrankensteiner) November 12, 2020
VULTURE: Leta Powell Drake of Nebraska for decades did the most blunt, off-putting interviews of hapless stars who were just trying to promote their latest projects, but who wound up being grilled about co-star feuds, their personal lives and why their last gigs were canceled. Made Twitter-famous by a recent mash-up of her most awkward moments, Drake — who is in her 80s and still kicking — spoke to Vulture about the newfound fame and her long, strange career.
One of her most cringeworthy:
YAHOO! NEWS: Trump's estranged niece Mary Trump warns that he is likely to “break things” on his way out the door. Unlike a disgrunted tenant or fired employee, when you are POTUS, the things you can break might be unfixable.
This scares me, but I'm available to spot him. (Image via Adam Lockwood)
OMG.BLOG! (WORK UNFRIENDLY): Daredevil Adam Lockwood is, well, hung.
TWITTER: Geraldo Rivera read an open letter to Trump, begging him to leave with dignity (after buttering him up):
Suddenly #DrFauci is bullish on vaccines. Where was that optimism two weeks ago?Message to friend @POTUS @realdonaldtrump finish the count by all means-then move on with grace and dignity.— Geraldo Rivera (@GeraldoRivera) November 12, 2020
You’ve been great but we all have to know when it’s over to leave the stage. pic.twitter.com/3vWkzkcF1N
NYT: The unbearable whiteness of being Mike Pence.
TWITTER (FOLLOW HERE): Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley gives rousing speech about the sanctity of the Constitution that seems to re-up the military's commitment to the document, not to any one person. Like Trump:
Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Milley: "We do not take an oath to a king or queen, a tyrant or dictator. We do not take an oath to an individual. No, we do not take an oath to a country, a tribe or religion. We take an oath to the Constitution." Listening, Trump? pic.twitter.com/7NHkR990Mh— Matthew Rettenmund (@mattrett) November 13, 2020
HUFF POST: Gloves off! Conservative SCOTUS Justice Samuel Alito — nominated by George W. Bush, who has undergone a dramatic image makeover since his toxic presidency — just gave a nakedly partisan speech to the Federalist Society, the organization that has produced all the conservative justice picks for 20 years. In it, he decried Obergefell, the decision that made same-sex marriage legal across the country, yet another hint a conservative-majority Court could overturn it in the near future, and invalidating thousands of gay marriages.
THE HILL: Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) has to be the most ignorant medical doctor in the world. He states that everyone who has survived COVID-19 is now immune, and should go out and celebrate it. There is zero reason to believe they're immune.

ADVOCATE: On Grey's Anatomy, it was Jake Borelli's anatomy that was the focus of a scene in which a fellow doc (Alex Landi) sucks him off off-camera. Masks on!
