The EPA Removed Climate Change Data From Its Website Just Ahead of Massive Climate Marches

On Saturday, tens of thousands of people participated in the Climate March to protest Donald Trump’s environmental policies, among others, on his 100th day in office. So, in order to be even more of a destructive asshole, Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency, helmed by Scott Pruitt (who has sued the EPA 13 times),…

Meet Taylor From Florida

8 players were drafted this weekend from the University of Florida. That’s good for 3rd most drafted right behind Alabama with 10 and Michigan with 11. Rolling with 8 NFL players on your roster is how you win the SEC East two years in a row and also how you get stomped by Alabama’s 10 NFL draftees in the SEC championship two years in a row. That’s still solid, though.

Know a college girl BC readers need to meet? Let us know: or IG/@bustedcoverage.

Madonna, Prince, Cher… And Now Cyrus?


Billy Ray Cyrus is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his contribution to the “Worst Songs in The History Of Sound Recording” category by taking a John Deere tractor ride over his name. Henceforth, he shall simply be known as “Cyrus.” Even his daughter Miley Cyrus is making a face, and that chick has made a career out of giving the world full-body cringes.

Billy Ray… sorry, Cyrus… (Do I have to? Ok, it’s your name, I guess.) has re-recorded his one hit wonder, “Achy Breaky Heart,” at the famed Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama. Rolling Stone posted the song and reports it’s a version that’s much closer to songwriter Don Von Tress‘ demo. For those of you who aren’t into country, yet you’ve been wishing for a version of “Achy Breaky Heart” to listen to while doing molly – you’re in luck! He’s also recording an EDM version with Bootsy Collins. Was David Guetta unavailable to make history? Does this mean an eventual re-recording of “Achy Breaky Heart, Pt. 2?” If so, will Elon Musk have opened SpaceX to the public prior to that? I’ll be needing a ticket.

As for the name change, Cyrus told Rolling Stone Country has wanted to go by plain ol’ “Cyrus” for awhile now.

“After August 25th, I will be the artist formerly known as Billy Ray. I’m just going by my last name Cyrus. I always went by Cyrus, and I begged Mercury Records to call me Cyrus in the beginning because that’s what I was comfortable with. I’m going to the hospital where I was born in Bellefonte, Kentucky, and legally changing my name.”

It’s nice to commemorate past triumphs with a rebirth or two, but there are other things in life he could have switched up beside his name. Endeavoring to get his daughter to put a shirt on would have been nice. Unveiling a wig that looks a little less like Ferris Bueller’s mom fell on hard times and a little more reminiscent of something actually biological would have been a nice milestone appreciator as well.



Hasan Minhaj Delivers White House Correspondents’ Dinner Speech: ‘No One Wanted to Do This’

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner—or what our absent president called, “a large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media…consoling each other in a hotel ballroom”—occurred rather unnecessarily and awkwardly but still with plenty of humor on Saturday night.

Isiah Thomas Loses A Tooth, Hits Back-To-Back Threes, Doctors Pop The Tooth Back In

Isaiah Thomas went into full playoff hockey mode in the first half of Game 1 of the Celtics-Wizards series this afternoon. After trying to deflect a pass to Otto Porter coming off a screen, his tooth literally flew out of his face onto the court. The camera caught it perfectly.

Then in classic hockey fashion, he kept playing and immediately hit back-to-back threes right in the Wizards’ face.

Who says only NHL guys play through these kinds of injuries? The only thing missing was him tweeting a selfie during a timeout to make sure everyone saw that the tooth was in fact missing.

Then somehow, after heading back to the locker room for a bit, the Celtics doctors just popped that bad boy back in and IT returned to action.

Can we call this “The Tooth Game”?

Bella Hadid Apologized For Luring People To The Fyre Festival

The Fyre Festival has come to full embody the phrase “unmitigated disaster.” Much like we asked ourselves after the Bowling Green Massacre, where were YOU when the Fyre burned out? Hopefully, relief efforts (volunteers bringing emergency Axe body spray, gluten-free muffins, and civil litigation attorneys) are on the way.

The schadenfreude enthusiasts among us are still snickering at the thought of rich people who paid $ 250,000 a ticket and forced to eat the lunch that you normally pack the day before payday. But who is responsible for stranding all of those people on an island with only mattresses to sleep on and little to no Blink-182? Well, it sounds like Ja Rule is, but Bella Hadid (pictured above apparently geared up for “Operation: Rescue The Entitled“) had a shapely, manicured hand in it as well. The most vacant-eyed supermodel in the game appeared in the festival’s advertising video and now she’s sorry her siren body led the idle rich to discomfort and off-brand bottled water.

Bella issued an apology on her Twitter for taking part in the marketing for the festival, which also featured Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, and Emily Rat-A-Tat-Tat Speakerbox Blast (or whatever her name is). In addition to the commercial, Bella and Co. also plugged the event on social media. She’s really sorry, while also denying she had anything to do with it. You know, she’s “celebrity sorry.”

“Hey guys, I just wanted to address Fyre Festival…Even though this was not my project what so ever, nor was I informed about the production or process of the festival in any shape or form, I do know that it has always been out of great intent and they truly wanted all of us to have the time of our lives. I initially trusted this would be an amazing & memorable experience for all of us, which is why I agreed to do one promotion…not knowing about the disaster that was to come…I feel so sorry and badly because this is something I couldn’t stand by, although of course if I would have known about the outcome, you would have all known too.”

Yes, I’m sure she would have absolutely issued a panicked bikini Snapchat warning festival-goers from going beforehand, but didn’t because that would have resulted in organizers suing her and trying to get back the huge amount of $ $ $ they paid her. Bella Hadid: Disaster Avertress!

In closing, she hopes everyone got out alive and really, please don’t sue her because you had to use a Port-A-Potty for the first time in your life.

“I hope everyone is safe and back with their families and loved ones…xo,” wrapping her statement with a blue butterfly and blue heart emoji.

Those heartfelt blue emojis will surely be a comfort to the shallow people who ended up trapped in what was basically Lord of the Flies for douches. They were burning their tankinis to stay warm!



Mia Khalifa Trolls Chad Kelly Again After Broncos Make Him “Mr. Irrelevant”

Chad Kelly just can’t stop taking L’s from the sports world’s favorite former porn star, Mia Khalifa. Every few months she’ll take time out of her day to bury him on Twitter all because of one incident back in September. You might not remember, but back during the football season Swag Kelly shot his shot by sliding into Mia’s DMs and she promptly put him on blast.

Now ever since, she’s been taking not-so-subtle jabs at him. Like this one when he didn’t get invited to the combine.

And then it happened again yesterday after Chad was forced to sit on his couch all day waiting to get drafted. Finally, the Broncos took him with the last pick making him “Mr. Irrelevant”. Mia had some thoughts.

Who knows when this will end. I think Mia might actually keep trolling him until his career is over. Her pettiness level is through roof and I can’t get enough of it.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Is A Terrible Golfer

There’s nothing wrong with being a terrible golfer. In fact, I’m a terrible golfer myself. But there’s something funny about watching a freak of nature, professional athlete be terrible at golf. Giannis is one of the most ridiculous physical specimens on the planet, then you watch him swing him a golf club and wonder how this guy is dominating the NBA.

I don’t know why, but it’s just always hilarious to me. He can get up and down the court in three dribbles, he can dunk from the free throw line in a game, but when he hits up Top Golf he looks like a new born baby deer.

But at least he admits it. He knows to stick to basketball. He’s not going to hit the course every weekend and embarrass himself like a certain someone who works for TNT.

Or, maybe not.

Interviewing Donald Trump Is a Frustrating, Hopeless Endeavor

Donald Trump has given a number of interviews in the last few days in an attempt to put a little lipstick on the pig that was his disastrous first 100 Days in office. If you haven’t read any of them, don’t bother. It’s the incoherent ramblings of a man who potentially has dementia.

All of the interviews can be summed up by the following statements:

— Obamacare is dead.

— The Democrats are obstructionists.

— The world is shit, and only I can make it better.

— I have had the most successful First 100 Days since Truman, but also, the first 100 Days in an arbitrary number and doesn’t matter.

— Taxes are bad. I’m not going to benefit from the new tax laws, and no, I’m not going to release my tax returns because they are under audit.

— I’m not going to tell you what I’m going to do with North Korea. But China is bad, but also great, and we’re friends, but also, they’re bad.

— The media is dishonest. I had nothing to do with Russia. Obama cleared Michael Flynn. He’s Obama’s fault.

— I won. Shut up.

That’s it. That’s the gist of every single one of his interviews, so far. He’s repeating the same lines, tripping up over the same questions, avoiding giving any answers about his own policies, and blaming everything on Obama and the Democrats.

And I know a lot of us have been hoping that the media — when given the rare opportunity to do so — would push Trump harder on some of these questions, but this is not the «dishonest» media’s fault. It’s impossible to pin him down. It doesn’t matter how many ways you ask the same question, he either won’t provide a direct answer, or he’ll change his answer during the course of a single interview. It’s frustrating not just for people who want to know what the hell is going on, but for reporters, who cannot stick Trump to an answer.

Here’s a perfect example. In his interview with Face the Nation (or Deface the Nation, as Trump calls it), John Dickerson really and truly tries to get Donald Trump to clarify whether preexisting conditions will be covered under his new health care plan. Here’s the maddening exchange. Try reading it without pulling your hair out, and when you get to the end, ask yourself: «Are preexisting conditions covered or not?»

JOHN DICKERSON: Let me ask you about health care — Tucker Carlson interviewed you about six weeks ago when you were in the middle of health care negotiations. And you agreed with him that the health care bill wasn’t going to help your supporters. That those who lived in rural areas, the older, were going to get hurt by that bill. And you told him—

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Excuse me, the health care bill is going to help my supporters.

JOHN DICKERSON: Well, hold on. Let me just finish the question, if I may, sir—

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Otherwise, I’m not going to sign it. I’m not going to do it.

JOHN DICKERSON: Well, this is why I wanted to ask you. You said to Tucker, «We will take care of our people, or I am not signing it.» You said you were going to negotiate.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Well, that’s what I just said.

JOHN DICKERSON: So tell me what in the bill you’ve been negotiating to get—


JOHN DICKERSON: —in that helps your supporters. I’m just trying to get the details of how your people—

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Let me just tell you.

JOHN DICKERSON: —will be helped.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Pre-existing conditions are in the bill. And I just watched another network than yours, and they were saying, «Pre-existing is not covered.» Pre-existing conditions are in the bill. And I mandate it. I said, «Has to be.»


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We have, we’re going to have lower premiums. And before you start there, let me just tell you something. Obamacare is dead. Obamacare right now, all the insurance companies are fleeing. Places like Tennessee have already lost half of their state with the insurance companies. They’re all going. Obamacare, John, is dead. Okay, because we’re being — we’re being compared to Obamacare. Just, so. Obamacare doesn’t work—

JOHN DICKERSON: I just want to compare you to your own.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: One thing. No, no, it’s important. I’ve got to compare it.

JOHN DICKERSON: No, no, but I want—

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: But you were saying about Obamacare.

JOHN DICKERSON: No, but I’m not. I’m asking what—


JOHN DICKERSON: —you’re going to do.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: —the premiums are too high. The deductibles are through the roof, so you never get to use it. But more importantly, it’s dead.

JOHN DICKERSON: So but in the bill, as it was analyzed, there were two problems. One, and you talked about this with Congressman Robert Aderholt, who brought you the example of the 64-year-old who under Obamacare the premiums—

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: But that was a long time ago, John.

JOHN DICKERSON: But has that been fixed?



PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: How? We’ve made many changes to the bill. You know, this bill is—

JOHN DICKERSON: What kind though?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: —very much different than it was three weeks ago.

JOHN DICKERSON: Help us explain because there are people—


JOHN DICKERSON: —out there wondering what kind of changes.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Let me explain. Let me explain it to you.


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: This bill is much different than it was a little while ago, okay? This bill has evolved. And we didn’t have a failure on the bill. You know, it was reported like a failure. Now, the one thing I wouldn’t have done again is put a timeline. That’s why on the second iteration, I didn’t put a timeline.

But we have now pre-existing conditions in the bill. We have — we’ve set up a pool for the pre-existing conditions so that the premiums can be allowed to fall. We’re taking across all of the borders or the lines so that insurance companies can compete—

JOHN DICKERSON: But that’s not in—


JOHN DICKERSON: —this bill. The borders are not in—

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Of course, it’s in.

JOHN DICKERSON: —this bill. It’s in that third bill, right, because—

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: It’s in the second phase.


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: It’s called phase one, phase two. And that’s, in effect, second phase, which will get approved, which will quickly get approved.


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: But let me just explain something. There will be such competition. Right now, there’s no competition. There will be such competition by insurance companies so that they can get health care and the people taking care of health care.


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: The other thing we’re going to have is groups. Groups of people can negotiate. What’s going to happen is the competition is going to drive down the premiums. In my opinion, much, much more than people understand.

JOHN DICKERSON: So what you’ve just described is the bill that you previously had said you worried wouldn’t help your people. And here’s why I ask. You said, «Pre-existing conditions.»

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: No, there were things in the other bill, the first version, which were not as good.


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: But when I watch some of the news reports, which are so unfair, and they say we don’t cover pre-existing conditions, we cover it beautifully.


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I’ll tell you who doesn’t cover pre-existing conditions. Obamacare. You know why? It’s dead.

JOHN DICKERSON: In one of the fixes that was—

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: It’s not going to be here.

JOHN DICKERSON: In one of the fixes it was discussed pre-existing was optional for the states—

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Sure, in one of the fixes. And they’re changing it—

JOHN DICKERSON: —oh, okay. So it’ll—


JOHN DICKERSON: —be permanent?


JOHN DICKERSON: Okay. Well, that’s a development, sir. So you’re saying it’s going to be pre-existing to everybody?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: John, this has evolved over a period of three or four weeks. Now, we really have a good bill. I think they could have voted on Friday. I said, «Just relax. Don’t worry about this phony 100 day thing. Just relax. Take it easy. Take your time. Get the good vote and make it perfect.»


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Most importantly, we’re going to drive down premiums. We’re going to drive down deductibles because right now, deductibles are so high, you never — unless you’re going to die a long, hard death, you never can get to use your health care—

JOHN DICKERSON: Let me ask you something—

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: —because the deductibles are so high.

JOHN DICKERSON: Okay. So what I hear you saying is pre-existing is going to be in there for everybody, it’s not going to be up to the states?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Pre-existing is going to be in there and we’re also—

JOHN DICKERSON: And it’s not up to the states?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: —going to create pools.


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: And pools are going to take care of the pre-existing.

JOHN DICKERSON: But on that crucial question, it’s not going to be left up to the states? Everybody gets pre-existing, no matter where they live?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: No, but the states—


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: —are also going to have a lot to do with it because we ultimately want to get it back down to the states.

JOHN DICKERSON: Okay. Is it a guarantee?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Look, because if you hurt your knee, honestly, I’d rather have the federal government focused on North Korea, focused on other things, than your knee, okay? Or than your back, as important as your back is. I would much rather see the federal government focused on other things—


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: —bigger things. Now, the state is going to be in a much better position to take care, because it’s smaller.

JOHN DICKERSON: People out there with pre-existing conditions, they are worried. Are they going to have the guarantee of coverage if they have a pre-existing condition or if they live in a state where the governor decides that’s not a part of the health care, or that the prices are going to go up? That’s the worry. The American Medical Association says—


JOHN DICKERSON: —it could effectively make coverage completely unaffordable for people.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: —we actually have, well, forget about unaffordable. What’s unaffordable is Obamacare, John.

JOHN DICKERSON: So I’m not hearing you, Mr. President, say there’s a guarantee of pre-existing conditions.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We actually have — we actually have a clause that guarantees.

JOHN DICKERSON: Okay, excellent. We got there.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We have a specific clause—

JOHN DICKERSON: Let me ask you—

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: —that guarantees.

JOHN DICKERSON: —about your tax plan.

OK, what I’m hearing is that preexisting conditions are guaranteed, as long as the states agree to guarantee them, but the federal government is too busy with North Korea to worry about some guy’s knee injury, but sure, yes, preexisting injuries will be covered, because all of those people will be put into a high-risk pool and those people will have their preexisting injuries covered as long as they can afford the premiums that are going to be twice their annual salary.

It’s incoherent word salad that provides us with absolutely no new information, but sure, it’s the media who is «dishonest,» for failing to report what no reasonably person could possibly decipher.
