What the Fuck Happened Today?

Good evening. Here’s a roundup of absurdity to ruin what’s left of your day:

  1. Continuing his busy week on Twitter, Kanye West tweeted a selfie in a MAGA hat alongside music execs Lyor Cohen and Lucien Grainge, followed by a photo of a MAGA hat bearing Donald Trump’s signature.
  2. Horrifyingly, Donald Trump also appears to have spent his afternoon monitoring Kanye’s feed. “Thank you Kanye, very cool,” the president wrote, retweeting Kanye’s claim that the two “are both dragon energy.”

  3. Kim Kardashian West tried her best to contain her husband’s damage. “He’s a free thinker, is that not allowed in America?” Kardashian tweeted. “He never said he agrees with his politics.”
  4. Meek Mill was released from prison last night! He then attended a Sixers game with… annoying YouTuber Jake Paul?

  5. Those homophobic posts on MSNBC host Joy Reid’s old blog were hacks, except the one she already apologized for, according to her “cybersecurity expert,” who seems a little too familiar with white supremacists.
  6. Fleetwood Mac: Still talking shit about each other after all these years. Yes, they’re going on tour this fall, and no, Lindsey Buckingham is not invited.

  7. A Perfect Circle’s new album Eat the Elephant is more of the same, writes Spin reviewer Ian Cohen. Maynard James Keenan fans made their diverging opinions known in the comments.
  8. Soulja Boy’s former merch site sells dragon dildos now. Not kidding. NSFW.
  9. Jack White covered the Modern Lovers, which is too bad because he’s about fifteen percent as funny as Jonathan Richman. At this point, that’s the least of our problems.
  10. At least there’s still one nice thing that hasn’t been ruined yet.

Happy Wednesday! Honestly: what the fuck.
