Welcome to Barf Bag, a daily politics roundup to help you sort through the chaotic Trumpian news cycle.

With the release of The Last Jedi, it’s more like once every 20 seconds, because every single newsfeed is clogged with Star Wars items. But this is actually a good one, because it’s about her dog, Gary.
Under Scott Pruitt’s sweaty reign, the Environmental Protection Agency has become an oozing, sludge-spewing tool of the petrochemical barons who run this godforsaken country, which is why it’s very, very funny that there’s reportedly “poop exploding out of the water fountains” at the actual EPA headquarters right now.…

In an interview with the New Zealand website Stuff, director Peter Jackson said that in the process of pitching his Lord of the Rings series in the late 1990s, Harvey Weinstein told him to not work with Mira Sorvino or Ashley Judd, two women we now know were sexually harassed by the producer.
There are many reasons to be grateful that we don’t live in the 1700s (Reign of Terror, lack of indoor plumbing), but the most important is probably the fact that wine glasses were extremely tiny. Like, little thimbles. According to a study from the University of Cambridge, wine glasses have ballooned in size over…
This Friday afternoon I have been chilled to the bone not only by New York City’s brutal cold snap, but by three questions posed to readers of Us Weekly in the span of five short hours.
James Alex Fields Jr., the 20-year-old neo-Nazi who allegedly injured 35 people and killed one woman when he plowed his car through a crowd of anti-fascists at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August, has been charged with first-degree murder.
Andrea Ramsey, a Democratic candidate for Kansas’s 3 Congressional District, announced that she will exit the race after the Kansas City Star asked Ramsey about the settlement of a 2005 lawsuit in which she was accused of sexually harassing and retaliating against a male employee.

A few months ago, a race promoter contacted me about a new proposed series with an aggressive marketing platform, a GT spec program, and a promise that all expenses would be paid. The catch? The series was for women only, and I wouldn’t be allowed to continue to compete in IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge or…

Disturbing body cam footage shows Hodges following police directives, then panicking as she is placed in handcuffs. She is 11. These images have led to an internal…
Now that the weather’s nice enough to exercise outdoors (or at least tell yourself that you will), Nordstrom Rack’s running a pretty solid sale on Adidas apparel and shoes for men, women, and kids. It’s a good time to stock up on basics to throw on for the gym, or running errands.
When I was 4 years old, I told my mother that my nursery school teacher told me to “stop acting like a baby” because I had gotten a boo-boo on my knee. According to my mother, she asked me what reception other little kids received when they got boo-boos. I told her that a little white girl in my class got a coveted…
