Trump Isn’t The Only Evil Clown on TV Anymore

The recipe for Feminist Snack Break is the same every week:

1/4 Snacks

Howard, senior cat correspondent: Dental chews

Dahlia, senior engagement editor: Powerberries, which pretend to be healthy but are mostly just delicious candy.

Ashley, production editor: Blueberries, the only vegan snack I could find at my house.

1/4 Howard

It’s been another week of 100+ degree weather, plus Oregon is on fire and the state has become a chimney filled with ash, so Howard was not in the best mood and he used his paw in a rude and not-friendly way with Ashley. As his supervisor, I apologize on his behalf. He will be nicer next week.

1/4 Politics

Last weekend, Trump refused to answer questions about his plans for DACA during one of his mandatory compliment meetings in which everyone is ritualistically required to offer their orange leader compliments. Trump ended the meeting by saying, “We love the Dreamers. We love everyone.”

Apparently not since just a few days later he sent his house-elf-zombie Jeff Sessions to announce the end of DACA with a speech full of lies. Cher was not having any of it.

1/4 Pop Culture

Last night, Ashley and I watched the season premier of American Horror Story: Cult. We are still unsure of what to make of it! Is it sly critique of the 53 percent of white women who voted for the King of the Evil Clowns, Donald Trump, or is it tacitly supporting the post-election fears of white Americans? Why did they have to bring clowns and scary tiny holes (trypophia) into it? We’re not sure, but we’re going to keep watching.
