If you’ve been dying to see how Margot Robbie would transform to play infamous figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, wonder no more. The first teaser for the upcoming black comedy, which is one of the season’s most anticipated new movies, gives us a few brief glimpses of Robbie in action on the ice rink, much of which is actually her and not a stunt double. We also get a look at her taking a bat to Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver) in 1994 and some intense close-ups of costars Sebastian Stan and Allison Janney. An official release date is still up in the air, so you have plenty of time to mull over Tonya’s searing declaration at the end of the trailer: «There’s no such thing as truth, it’s bullsh*t.» Fair enough.

Deuce Gruden is having himself a good time at the IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships in Belarus. He already has a gold medal in his pocket and now he’s going to come back to the States as a viral sensation now that word is starting to travel around that the 5 foot 6 fire hydrant is a yoked beast. This is exactly the kind of news a legitimate blogger latches onto during June when all we have is the College World Series and some NBA draft stuff to fake care about.
How did Deuce Gruden get his name? His actual name is Jon David Gruden II, hence the ‘Deuce’ nickname. I know some of you were losing your minds over this one.
Deuce spent the 2016 NFL season as a strength and conditioning intern with Uncle Jay’s Redskins after graduating from Lafayette where he was a running back (16 carries, 46 yards over final two seasons). Legend has it that Deuce was a 350-pound bench pressing behemoth who played quarterback, wide receiver, linebacker and safety during high school.
Now he’s a competitive lifter with just 1,317 IG followers as I type this. That number is about to explode now that Deuce is out here dominating the world in powerlifting. Now he has a gold.
We love seeing Barack Obama mingle with celebrities, but the one thing that always tops it all is when he’s being cute with Michelle. On Tuesday, the couple stepped out together at the Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony in Washington DC. In addition to holding hands and flashing their winning smiles, Barack and Michelle were dressed to the nines. The president looked dapper in a black suit, while Michelle dazzled in a Dries Van Noten silk robe dress and gemstone earrings that perfectly complemented the look. The event, which honors individuals who have made «especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors,» brought out all 21 recipients, including Diana Ross, Tom Hanks, and Ellen DeGeneres, who almost didn’t make it inside because she forgot her ID.
A Reminder: Barack Obama Is Still Our President, And He Just Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to 21 Awesome People
As we can’t help but look ahead to the awful, shameful time to which we will soon look back with heads held low, let’s enjoy these last few months in which Barack Obama is still our President. Our Still-President Obama just awarded 21 people the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and they are typically, for Obama, awesome.
It took me probably a full minute to realize what was funny about that picture there. (Spoiler: there are two people in the picture. There’s a President hiding behind the Jabbar.)
