What feels like decades ago, Trump talked about actively targeting the families of terrorists, and killing them. He probably sees the deaths of these kids as a big win. Read more

I just posted some screenshots of it. By the time I got to the article comments were already disabled and it seemed likely that the thing was coming down pretty soon. It was basically a note of solidarity from the Jezebel staff telling us that they hate the autoplay videos too and they hear our complaints about the Read more

I know I’ll probably remain in the greys forever, but I just wanted to point out that the post addressing the autoplay videos is gone. Hopefully it gets reposted or addressed, that seems shady AF since they never delete posts here.
