Taking a page from Ben Affleck and his holier-than-thou reaction to his PBS screw-up, pop star Ariana Grande got busted for misbehaving and then responded to Internet outrage by lecturing her fans about obesity:

 

“As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society.” – Grande’s “apology

 

OK, but what about the health of the poor schmuck who bought and then ate the donuts contaminated with your germs and dried saliva?

I’m trying to imagine the uproar from feminists if the roles were reversed in the annoying UnitedHealthcare commercial pictured above. The woman talks to her hapless husband as if he were a small child with learning disabilities.

 

Simple-Minded Husband:  “I took the trash out.”

Condescending Wife:  “I know, and thank you so much for that.”

Condescending Wife:  “You do your pushups today?”

Simple-Minded Husband:  “No, I watched cartoons instead.”

 

Just kidding on that last response.  But I’m surprised she doesn’t ask him if he remembered to wipe after going number two.

I can’t wait to read the truly life-affirming autobiography by Fox’s Gretchen Carlson, who overcame the twin horrors of losing a job once and growing up chubby. Take that, Holocaust survivors who write books!

Donald Trump might be an egocentric blowhard, but I’m beginning to agree with him: We need to build a fence.

Scream1

 

I’ve been watching MTV’s new series, Scream. Yes, I said I’ve been watching MTV’s new series, Scream. And lord help me, I’m kind of digging it. So sue me.

There are lots of great shows these days with vexing moral dilemmas and topical, complex themes. With this piece of mindless fluff, you get a break from all of that, and who doesn’t need a break from all of that?
