President Donald Trump was a distracting entertainment from the moment he launched his campaign in June of 2015 — until he wasn’t.
His opening speech, in which he called Mexican immigrants “rapists” and told the world he would be the best jobs president “God ever created,” was looked at as the ravings of a man whose outsized ego was too big to be anything but hilarious.
News outlets such as CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC carried his run-on sentences and gesticulations seemingly every time he got behind a podiumThe Huffington Post for a time only wrote about Trump in its entertainment section.

This recap contains spoilers for American Gods Season 1, episode 1, titled “The Bone Orchard.”
Shadow Moon had a hard week in the first installment of American Gods.
After being released from prison and learning that his beloved wife Laura had died (while performing a particularly ill-advised sex act on Shadow’s best friend Robbie in a moving car, as he later discovered), our brooding ex-con reluctantly agreed to work for the enigmatic Mr. Wednesday, a canny grifter with a false eye and a flair for the dramatic.

In other words, data says they feel “worthless” or “insecure” and are therefore well-positioned to receive an advertiser’s message. …
High school wouldn’t have been the same without painful memories of the circle game.
