The Perfect Father’s Day Gift For Your Trump-Stumping Dad

Father’s Day is too often a half-hearted gift-giving affair littered with cornball cards and #1 Dad mugs. But if your bleeding heart wants to do something special for your conservative dad, you want to go above and beyond, right? But that can be tricky. I mean, he already has a «Make America Great Again» ballcap and probably several of Trump’s Made-In-China neckties. So what’s a special gift to give your dad to show him how you care? We have racked our brains to present the perfect gift guide for your Trumping-Stumping Dad on Father’s Day, because this is a holiday where he should really know how you feel.

Climate Change shmimate change, amirite? Your dad doesn’t need to appreciate the world-threatening dangers of America’s carbon footprint to appreciate this solar-powered laptop bag/charging station. For all those times he barked about you running up his electricity bill, show him you’ve learned your lesson about the importance of conserving energy with Climate Store’s unique gift.

Does he consider himself a master of spotting «fake news?» Get him a subscription to the New York Times, The Washington Post, or even Teen Vogue. That’s sure to amuse.

Is your father constantly talking about politics on Facebook? Well, he’ll love to know the inside scoop on congress, from Al Franken, Giant of the Senate!

Or maybe yours is the kind of dad that thinks family shouldn’t talk politics. Get him this charming pachyderm, because clearly he loves an elephant in the room.

Your dad is big on personal responsibility? He’ll love that you supported responsible life choices by donating the money you would have wasted on another tie or tacklebox doodad on a donation to Planned Parenthood! A donation could even net him a cool sticker for his car!

Or perhaps your dad is very concerned about those refugees that Fox News is always talking about. Then he’ll be ecstatic that you donated to a refugee-aid charity in his name. We recommend International Rescue Committee, where donations contribute to toilets to keep camps sanitary, education for uprooted children, and safe passage funds.

Finally, if your father can’t get enough of Trump’s off-the-cuff, never look back, never apologize attitude, give him the gift that celebrates all of that. A covfefe shirt from our very own Pajiba shop!

A Ranting Alex Jones Is Asking that His Megyn Kelly Interview Not Air on Father’s Day

This is my new favorite thing today!

Sarah went to Gwynnie’s Wellness (with a capital «W») retreat, «In Goop Health» (no, seriously, that’s what it’s called) and in addition to a bag of $ 85 rocks, she got to experience Goop. — (Lainey)

I NEED ALL OF THESE! — (Nerdist)

Megyn Kelly’s new NBC newsmagazine is not making friends with either side of the political spectrum. The left is furious that Kelly and NBC would give a platform to Sandy Hook truther Alex Jones (and at least one advertiser, JP Morgan, has pulled their ads for the episode), while Alex Jones is also pissed, calling Kelly «cold and robotic» and claiming that the interview is a «hit piece trying to destroy independent media» that make fathers look bad, which is why he doesn’t want it to air on Father’s Day. (Also, because Alex Jones is terrible father). (Uproxx)

If you missed the Tony Awards last night, you might have missed the orchestra trying to play Bette Midler off. Hahahahaha. You don’t tell Bette when she’s finished speaking. Bette finishes when she’s damn good and ready. — (Dlisted)

Also at the Tonys was Mary Beth Peil, who most people would recognize from Dawson’s Creek, but whom I recognize as Peter’s mother from The Good Wife. She looks fantastic and is my new inspiration for aging beautifully. — (GFY)

I feel like I’ve said this so many times, but here it is again: REPRESENTATION MATTERS! And you can see it here in this small sampling of adorable childpeople who saw Wonder Woman. — (The MarySue)

Barron and Melania have moved into the White House and awwwww, doesn’t the First Family look so joyously happy to be together again? That hand-holding doesn’t look awkward at all. — (Jezebel)

Amanda Bynes is back and sober and ready to work, and I just love her so much, I hope she’s happy and feeling good! I also hope she does another movie with Charming Potato because I would buy it and watch it over and over even though my husband would say, «Are you seriously watching this stupid movie again? Is this supposed to be funny? I don’t get it.» HYPOTHETICALLY. — (Celebitchy)

Jessica Chastain got married over the weekend and she looked just lovely! But really? What the shit was Anne Hathaway wearing? — (LG)

Have you watched Curtis Hanson’s film L.A. Confidential? Bea Pants is here to tell you that compared to James Ellroy’s book L.A. Confidential, Hanson’s movie is the happy parts of a Pixar movie. Elroy’s Los Angeles is "dark, mean and merciless." Though not for the faint hearted, L.A. Confidential is a smartly written book. (Cannonball Read 9)

A quick shout-out to a longtime reader of ours, Laura, who offers up reviews at her blog, Movie Mommy. (Movie Mommy)

I said The Defenders picture was my new favorite thing today, but actually, THIS is my new favorite thing today!

10 Stars Celebrating Their Very First Father’s Day This Year

Father’s Day is on June 18, which means a new batch of celebrities will be ringing in the holiday as dads for the very first time. Actors like Steven Yeun and Jonathan Rhys Meyers welcomed adorable little boys, while Bradley Cooper and Adam Levine expanded their families with beautiful baby girls. Let’s take a moment to honor all the new famous dads.

This Brand For Proud Papas is Perfect For Father’s Day

Singer and actor Matthew Morrison and photographer and travel expert Zach McDuffie are on a mission to break the stereotype of the frumpy dad. Their new line, Sherpapa Supply Co., aims to bring the modern family man a line of high-quality products like locally grown organic cotton shirts, “manly” diaper bags that last for every season of fatherhood, hats, bandanas, field kits and more.

As the proud father of a little girl, McDuffie understands the inconveniences that arise during fatherhood and the opening in the market for great dad products. Sure, men can carry a diaper bag or backpack when on baby-duty, “But the thing is, you have to carry all of your wife’s gear because they don’t make anything cool for dads,” says McDuffie. “Guys should have something of their own to be proud of.”

M4 Diaper Bags, the anchor products to the Sherpapa Supply Co. brand, make everyday father duty and family adventures more feasible. “It’s really the basis for our whole brand,” says McDuffie. “We just want that lovely classic look for the modern American family man. It’s something that’s meant to last as an heirloom piece as opposed to something that you just use once and then pass it on.”

The essential canvas bag comes with eight gusseted side pockets, easy to travel pouches, a leather changing pad and reusable containers, making it much easier to stay organized. The utilitarian bag functions as an overnight hospital bag for when the baby comes, a heavy duty diaper bag, and later (during the toddler years) an activity bag to fill with f coloring books and snacks.

Gilt Diaper Bag

Even moms appreciate the variety of colors and patterns available. “Women appreciate a good bag,” says Morrison, “it’s the bag that everyone wants because it’s more functional.”

McDuffie explains the meaning of Sherpapa in a press release as “a strong family leader, guide, and protector of our children’s future. It is also is a term of endearment for a beloved father or grandfather. It is a combination of the words sherpa (expert guide or mentor) and papa (universal term for father), but also a reference to cher papa, which in French means ‘dearest papa.’” The term papa, Morrison adds, has an acronym the company supports: Protect Aid Prepare and Advise.

Sherpapa Supply Co. has collaborated with Gilt.com to expand their reach to the Gilt audience. “Gilt has a really good channel for the storytelling aspect, so it’s not just launching a brand with cool bags and cool apparel,” says McDuffie. “We’re really trying to tell a story of what a sherpapa is, and that’s a modern family leader.” Officially launching on June 1st, favorite Sherpapa items along with Father’s Day gifts (hand painted baseball bats and canoe paddles) and exclusive products curated specifically for the partnership will be sold on Gilt.com.

“Being a dad is the best job in the world and there’s a lot of great dads that are really proud of being dads,” says McDuffie. “But there’s not a lifestyle brand that really supports that, until now.”

Re: Reports Ivanka Trump Cried Over Her Father’s ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape

From The Daily Beast:

Ivanka Trump was reportedly «reduced to tears» after viewing the infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which then-reality-TV host Donald Trump bragged to host Billy Bush about grabbing women «by the pussy» without their consent. The video tape, released in early October 2016 by The Washington Post, had threatened to derail Trump’s presidential campaign, and according to The New York Times, Ivanka «made an emphatic case for a full-throated apology.

So, listen: I don’t give a fuck if she sobbed until her eyes fell out. You’re in the big leagues now, Ivanka. Suck it up. Put on your big kid clothes and stop acting like a fucking china doll, you goddamn brat. Act like a grown-ass woman. And media? Stop treating her like she’s a delicate flower made of spun glass and unicorn tears. Treat her like a goddamn grownup.

Can you IMAGINE a piece like that being written about Michelle Obama? Or even one of the Obama kids? What is this fucking bullshit? Why the hell does every goddamn reporter feel the need to sail in and tell the world what a lovely fucking flower Ivanka is? Fuck that and fuck her. Literal lives depend on her, and she’s being treated like one of the older kids pulled her hair during recess.

I know, I know. BECAUSE WHITE PEOPLE.

BUT FUCKING STILL. ENOUGH.
