It’s glancingly rare that anyone actually on the left gets booked on a cable news show like CNN’s The Lead, but when it happens, they generally shake shit up and leave the other talking heads agog. Today’s case: Mehdi Hasan, host for Al Jazeera and columnist for the Intercept, distilling the whole …
If you, like me, are excited for the next season of American Crime Story focused on Bill Clinton’s impeachment, you may be saddened to hear Hillary Clinton “is actually not a significant character” on the show, according to an FX exec who spoke with The Hollywood Reporter. The season is slated for a 2020 release.
Rick Perry, as head of the Department of Energy, is tasked with overseeing America’s vast nuclear arsenal, one capable of blowing up the Earth many times over. He’s also a huge idiot, as evidenced yet again by him sharing one of the oldest anti-Facebook, AOL-era-ass hoaxes in the book last night.
The rule is that once cops use a meme, it’s dead and buried. The police state’s latest casualty: hard seltzer White Claw, which was (bafflingly) having a bit of a moment this summer.
In an interview with Vice News out Tuesday, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid criticized the 2020 field’s support for Medicare for All and sounded like a Republican as he talked about how “decriminalizing border crossings” should be “way down at the bottom of the list” of priorities. Go away again!!
While we here at Splinter would never in our lives endorse criminal conduct, you have to hand it to the former employee of Robert De Niro’s who, De Niro alleges in a new lawsuit, spent literal days and days of company time binge-watching Friends and other shows on Netflix.
After Joe Biden seemed to lose the thread at various points during last month’s debate and then misstepped his way through Iowa, questions were raised about how on-the-ball he is, really, at 76 years old. But don’t worry, his brain is fine and it’s silly for you to worry about old candidates who are going to live…
My new (miserable) party trick when some blissfully ignorant new person asks me “what I do” is to turn the conversation—which could go in any number of directions too dark for after hours—to working in Times Square.
In an unprecedented move, Trump’s U.S. Attorney in Philadelphia attacked local District Attorney Larry Krasner after six officers were wounded in a standoff late yesterday. The U.S. Attorney directly accused Krasner of cultivating a “culture of disrespect” against cops and allowing for the incident to happen, which,…
Last night, a deeply strange thing happened after a Twitter user responded to a fairly innocuous August 1 tweet from Amazon offering up free tours at a “fulfillment center” to see what the “warehouses are really like.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally did it—she referred to Mitch McConnell by the worst political nickname running today, “Moscow Mitch.”
Say it with me: Fuck THE Ohio State University, an inferior midwestern state school with an even bigger inferiority complex, which is trying to trademark the extraneous “The” in its name, according to CNN.
Not much is clear about the circumstances surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s death except the fact that jail officials fucked up in a huge way. Now, the warden of the New York City jail has been temporarily reassigned and two guards charged with monitoring him have been put on leave, NBC News reported Tuesday.
If you like sports, you probably know Barstool. Even if you don’t, you probably know Barstool as the online home for sports-adjacent bros who are also deeply interested in racism, misogyny and being all-around dicks online.
Remember the hogs? The roving band of feral ones threatening the sanity and progeny of some random guy on Twitter who was making the case for why he needs a massive gun?
There are a range of acceptable responses to Jeffrey Epstein’s death, such as grief for his victims and the justice they’ll now never receive and rage at a system that somehow allowed this to happen among them.
