A Mexican Immigrant Artist Is Selling Donald Trump Butt Plugs

By

Donald Trump’s seemingly off-the-cuff, definitely presidential, and totally not racist declaration—in the midst of his campaign launch announcement, for God’s sake—that Mexican immigrants are not only “bringing drugs” and “bringing crime,” but “they’re rapists” (“And some, I assume, are good people,” he added, nice save, douchebag) have resulted in the rather awe-inspiring abandonment of the controversial real estate mogul by, well, all these companies. Petitions have been circulated, protests have been staged, jokes have been told. But the single best response to the Donald’s “immigration reform” comments may be this one, from artist Fernando Sosa.

Ariana Grande’s Donut Licking Incident Seriously Upset Fox News

By

Very few would argue against the lickability of donuts: with such a panoply of flavors and glazes, they are an undeniably seductive snack — and a recently leaked video, seemingly of Ariana Grande surreptitiously licking donuts (that weren’t rightfully hers!) in a shop corroborates this notion. But was such a gesture actually a win for donuts, or, as the Right would hilariously have it, a subtle attack on the pastry as a synecdoche for America, which she also stated in the video that she “hates?” And so the silliest news story of the week actually seems to be getting the pop star in some trouble, while simultaneously exposing the franticness of the Right to condemn anyone who seems “unpatriotic.”
