These Four Women Thought Forming an All White 'Squad' Was a Good Idea

These Four Women Thought Forming an All White 'Squad' Was a Good Idea

The so-called “Squad” —comprised of progressive Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Rashia Tliab—have served less than one year of their freshman term in Congress, and have spent the entirety of that time living rent-free in Republicans’ heads. From Tucker Carlson segments to President Trump’s tweets, the Republican party’s fixation on the Squad has...

Women Denied Entry From Strip Club Spark Civil Rights Battle In Florida

Women Denied Entry From Strip Club Spark Civil Rights Battle In Florida

Strip clubs instituting arbitrary, sexist policies against women isn’t an uncommon phenomenon. For every story of a rowdy bachelorette party is a story of a couple of women being denied entry at the same joint. But it’s safe to say that few of these altercations have been spun into a lawless left-wing conspiracy as quickly as the tale of two women who were denied entry at an Orlando strip...

Creep Who Sexually Harassed Reporter Is a Youth Minister, Boy Scout Leader, and Very Sorry!

Surprise! The runner who slapped reporter Alex Bozarjian’s butt during a live broadcast is a youth minister and Boy Scout leader who just wants to “correct the situation” according to his lawyer.

The incident occurred on December 7 while Bozarjian was reporting live from the Savannah Bridge Run in Savannah, Georgia. Several runners goofed off in front of the news camera during the race, but...

Give Me Some More Impeach the Motherfucker Energy

Give Me Some More Impeach the Motherfucker Energy

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday, accusing him of abusing the power of his office and obstructing Congress during its investigation into his dealings with Ukraine.

During a press conference, Chairman of House Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler called the move a “solemn step,” one that emphasizes that “No one, not even the president, is...

Did Horniness Drive Christopher Steele to Gift the Family Tartan to Ivanka Trump? [UPDATED]

Christopher Steele, former British intelligence agent and author of the controversial intelligence report alleging a conspiracy between President Trump and the Russian government leading up to the 2016 presidential election, knew Ivanka Trump for years prior to penning his “Steele dossier.” ABC News reports that Trump met Steele at a dinner in London in 2007; he was still working for MI6...

President Trump took some time to rally against enemies old and new today during a roundtable with small business owners and administration officials today, all in the name of shitting on the environment. He reignited his hatred of new energy-efficient lightbulbs,...

How Nice of Michael Bloomberg to Call Cory Booker 'Well Spoken'

How Nice of Michael Bloomberg to Call Cory Booker 'Well Spoken'

Michael Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor and current billionaire who recently threw his hat into the 2020 Democratic primary, feels very attacked right now. His competitors are none too pleased with his plan to spend up to $1 billion of his own money on his campaign, which kicked off with a $30 million TV ad buy and millions more in online ads if you include the $100 million spent...

Here Comes the 'Yass Queen' Nancy Pelosi Crowd

Here Comes the 'Yass Queen' Nancy Pelosi Crowd

At exactly 11:10 a.m., my mom sent me the following text: “Nancy just now clapped back big time at a member of the press” It was accompanied by an animated Bitmoji-type rendering of herself dabbing. Of course, I knew the Nancy in this scenario would be Nancy Pelos i, but what, I wondered, inspired the “clap back” my mom, much to my chagrin, had referred to?

Maybe I set my expectations too...

Maybe Kamala Harris Was Never the One

Maybe Kamala Harris Was Never the One

Kamala Harris is a black woman living in the United States, so the assertion that racism or sexism couldn’t have possibly factored into negative perceptions of her is absurd. But I’m unconvinced that misogynoir alone sunk her presidential campaign. And I’m alarmed that the hurdles black women go through are being weaponized—especially by white liberals—to deify Harris in the aftermath of her...

Love Is Still Dead: Remembering Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's Whirlwind Tabloid Romance

This is the latest episode of Not a Phase, a weekly video series where Jezebel remembers some of the most delightfully cringe-worthy phases of a celebrity’s life, even though they would probably like us to forget.

A few sharp memories come into focus when I think back to 2002. I remember the massive zit I had on school picture day in 7th grade. I remember how cool I felt after buying Blink...

Did the 'Kamala Is a Cop' Meme Help Tank Harris's Campaign?

Did the 'Kamala Is a Cop' Meme Help Tank Harris's Campaign?

It’s only appropriate for a decade defined by the steady mainstreaming of internet memes to end with one so powerful it may have changed a presidential campaign. In the last couple of years, the political rise of Kamala Harris, from California Senator to presidential hopeful, has been met with a terse but effective meme: “Kamala Is a Cop.” Rooted in Kamala Harris’s tenure as San Francisco...

Melania Trump, Lakers Fan

Melania Trump, Lakers Fan

First Lady Melania Trump—home decor maven —certainly stood out on Tuesday when she and President Trump had tea with Prince Charles and Camilla at Clarance House. Wearing a canary yellow (or, as my colleague Megan Reynolds put it, “piss yellow ”) dress with fuschia-accented sleeves and matching fuschia shoes, Trump looked like a literal ball of sunshine in the royals’ very muted parlor. A very...

I Don't Entirely Hate This Thanksgiving Dinner Served on the New York City Subway

I Don't Entirely Hate This Thanksgiving Dinner Served on the New York City Subway

Stunts on the New York City subways are usually so unremarkable that no number of mariachi bands, Showtime dance crews, or fire and brimstone preachers can shake the resolve of the daily commuter. But getting stuck on the same train car as an amateur Soundcloud rapper can’t prepare someone for this shit: a Thanksgiving feast, tablecloth and all.

On Sunday, a woman wearing an apron with the...

Joe Biden Still Doesn't Know How to Talk About Deportation

Joe Biden Still Doesn't Know How to Talk About Deportation

Former Vice President Joe Biden is reluctant to admit that the Obama administration wasn’t spotless. The administration’s record of deportation, in particular, has already come to mar the shiny sheen of Obama’s legacy, and is emphasized by the Trump administration’s further villainization of immigrants, asylum seekers, and the undocumented. Yet Biden fails to realize that simply not being...
