Donald Trump’s visit to the United Kingdom has been a contentious topic for months now. Most recently, London mayor Sadiq Khan has called for the trip’s cancellation due to Trump’s boorish response to the city’s recent terrorist attack. Now our kindergartner-in-chief says he isn’t going to the U.K. if its people are…
On the heels of their break with Kathy Griffin, CNN has severed ties with Believer host Reza Aslan—and also, seemingly, for Trump-related reasons. Aslan recently referred to Donald Trump as a “piece of shit” on Twitter. Who among us, truly?
As you may recall, our overcooked, overdone steak-gobbling president is scheduled to pay a visit to the United Kingdom.

British Prime Minister Theresa May invited Donald Trump, our fluorescent ham rump-in-chief, to visit the United Kingdom just days after his inauguration. On this trip, he would meet Queen Elizabeth II (heaven help her) and, typically, he would address Parliament. But there’s a slight wrinkle in this itinerary:…
On Wednesday night, London’s Borough Market held an Evening of Cheese event, which they described on Twitter as “a fromage-themed extravaganza.” It sounds like attendees didn’t find the cheese bacchanal they were hoping for and instead had to spread their crackers with DRAMA.
One of the few things left to look forward to is the annual release of data that shows which European city is doing most of its cocaine supply, by scientists who determine such by analyzing the cocaine in various sewers.
