On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump stood in front of the joint members of Congress and delivered a speech that was surprisingly devoid of spluttering, anti-media invective and cries of “fake news”to a room full of sycophants and stony-faced detractors. Perhaps you caught a glimpse of white, sprinkled throughout…
Emperor Trump will deliver his first speech to a joint Congress on Tuesday night, in which the White House promises he will “lay out an optimistic vision for the country that crosses the traditional lines of party, race and socioeconomic status.” So, will the man who made up a fake terrorist attack in Sweden to…

This weekend we crossed the threshold into a new month, and the New York Times, paper of record, has marked the occasion with a new condemnation of millennial culture. On April 30, 2016 their Opinion section ran a piece by Molly Worthen entitled “Stop Saying ‘I Feel Like.’”

I’ve been iffy about Late Late Show host James Corden for a while now, mostly due to his disastrous performance as host to Glamour’s 2014 Women of the Year Awards, in which he told a series of lightly misogynistic jokes that culminated in his telling Hillary Clinton that she was his “weird crush.” However!

Sometimes it's not looking like too much like a woman that works against you — it's sounding too much like one.
