Good Afternoon Eye Fuckers,

The second Trump-Kim summit starts today! WILL THEY SING SHALLOW??

God I hope so. And then kiss. Finally.

BUSINESS.

The latest reports out of Washington indicate that Attorney General Bill Barr could submit Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election to Congress as soon as this week. Congress would then be in a position to act on the report’s findings as soon as 2025.

On the eve of the second summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un this week in Vietnam, CNN reports that during the first such meeting last year in Singapore, the former told the latter that he had known “plenty of people” from powerful families who had “emerged messed up,” but that Kim “wasn’t one of them.” “You should be glad,” Trump then added, “that your father murdered anyone who could have spoiled you.”

Jerry, we know you loved Green Book.

In his prepared remarks before Congress today, Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen said he recalled Trump telling him that the businessman’s son Don Jr. “had the worst judgment of anyone in the world.” Cohen testified that he responded, “Worse than Eric?”, to which Trump replied, “Who?”

Following a recent ban on recyclable imports by China, US cities are sending more and more such materials to landfills and incinerators. The materials will then be burned, releasing into the air toxic chemicals that cause chronic illnesses necessitating pills from bottles made from other recyclable materials, thus completing the recycling process.

PSA: In preparation for a highly likely nuclear exchange between India and Pakistan, please watch this video. Individual tortoise shells will be available in the twelfth-floor cafeteria, and if you see a monkey, SAY SOMETHING.

Las Vegas was blanketed with half an inch of snow last Wednesday. The covering was reportedly snorted up within minutes.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been charged with two counts of misdemeanor solicitation in connection with a far-reaching prostitution sting in Florida. Prosecutors have officially named the charges Eli Manning so Kraft can’t beat them.

Hello Potential Sexual Partners,

Hello, fellow rightful leaders of Venezuela! It’s like a real-life Game of Thrones, but with less sex and food.

Business!

Embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro last week gave American diplomats 72 hours to leave the country after Donald Trump recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s lawful president. The Trump administration responded with a statement reading, “What’s a diplomat?”

In response to the high price of Super Bowl commercials, Mars, Inc. will stage a fully realized, 30-minute Broadway musical about Skittles starring Michael C.

Billionaire hedge fund manager Ken Griffin has bought a penthouse apartment in New York City for $238 million, the most ever paid for an American home. Just 7 years ago, Griffin told the Chicago Tribune “I think there are a lot of things about ’08 that are worth discussing. Every time there’s been a bubble in asset prices, people get hurt. I think it’s very unfortunate that as a culture we were so encouraged by both the past stability of home prices and a litany of government programs to buy homes, to view them as a safe place to put a significant amount of our net worth, so that as a society we pushed home prices way above where they should have been. When that bubble burst, a lot of people got hurt.”

This Sunday, come watch the Super Bowl in Conference Room XX! When Alex Guerrero wins, we all win.

Parts of Rent, Jonathan Larson’s seminal 1996 musical that was performed live (sort of) last Sunday on FOX, may have been plagiarized from a 1990 novel by lesbian writer Sarah Schulman called “People in Trouble.” If true, it would mark the only known instance of appropriation of any aspect of gay culture by any straight person ever.

Singer Ariana Grande recently tried to get a tattoo of the Japanese characters representing the name of her new song “7 Rings,” but instead got a tattoo of characters meaning “barbeque grill.” Grande has since defended her decision by saying, “To be fair, I didn’t know what I was getting with Pete, either.”

Vice President Mike Pence‘s wife Karen (Mother) is returning to teaching at a Christian school where she previously spent 12 years, one that has banned openly gay students, parents, and teachers. Ironically, Mrs. Pence will be teaching art.

Jerry, it was pass interference.

In response to Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s plan to raise the marginal tax rate on assets over $10 million to 70%, Fox News host Sean Hannity has warned that such a measure would stop rich people from remodeling their homes. “And when rich people stop remodeling their homes, who gets hurt?” Hannity told listeners to his radio show, “That’s right: rich people! She’s so young and dumb.”

Novelist MacKenzie Bezos, currently in the process of divorcing Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos in the wake of the latter’s affair with news anchor Lauren Sanchez, stands to get up to half of her husband’s wealth, or $69 billion.

Various videos and accounts of the now-famous standoff between boys from a Catholic prep school in Kentucky and a Native American elder last week continue to emerge, sparking fierce debate about the nature of the interaction in which no physical contact was made by either side. When asked for comment on the student protestors’ actions, Covington Catholic’s principal Bob Rowe said, “Both the school’s and the church’s views on this are pretty clear: the students, like many great Catholic explorers before them, could have gone further with the natives.”

In other Covington Catholic news, the school’s openly gay valedictorian was barred from speaking at graduation last spring because his speech was “inconsistent with the teaching of the Catholic Church.” The speech reportedly contained such statements as, “Love thy neighbor, no matter whom he loves,” and, “Nobody should molest children.”
