The man who calls himself the president of the United States has announced that he plans to hold America hostage Tuesday night while he talks about the "humanitarian and national security crisis" at the border that he made up in his stupid dumb racist brain.

There have been rumblings from the president's egregiously large ass that he might even declare a national emergency to get his stupid damn racist border wall, something he really probably does not have the power to do.

But will the networks say fuck it and run it live? We certainly hope not. First of all, it's just going to be stupid propaganda and lies, and that's not what our primetime TVs should be wasting their time doing. As of this writing, none of the big networks has said yes.

Wonkette would like to give our encouragement to the networks to stand their ground, by telling you 10 things that would be waaaaaaaay better to watch tomorrow night at 9:00 PM Eastern, including all the things the big four networks are normally scheduled to play at that time. All of these are WAY MORE CRUCIAL to national security than watching that dick vomit out word salad.


10. "FBI" on CBS. We have never seen this show before, but it's about the FBI, which means COP SHOW, and it is from Dick Wolf, the creator of "Law & Order." MUST WATCH! (UPDATE: Nope! CBS caved, like a idiot. We never liked CBS anyway.)

9. Netflix. Seriously, just pick a show on there and watch it. We are finally getting caught up on "Orange Is The New Black" right now. Rebecca likes the show about "tidying up" with Marie Kondo, who is pretty much the leader of a cult.

8. Paint drying.

7. Rachel Maddow. If she runs the address from Trump, which she may or may not, go outside and make a fire in the fire pit and drink some liquor while that's happening, then come back and she will tell you all the times he lied.

6. "Blackish" on ABC. We have seen this sitcom a few times! It has Tracee Ellis Ross and it is about the life and times of an upper middle-class black family and it is funny! This is a better show to watch than "I Am Racist, Give Me Wall." (UPDATE: Nope! COWARDS!)

5. Go to your yard and see if there is a squirrel. Watch it do stuff.

4. Watch your spouse or significant other, if you have one. Ooh, are they being SEXXXY? Better pay attention!

3. Maybe you like superheroes! Then you might enjoy "The Gifted" on the Fox network! It is related to the X-Men stuff! There are mutants in it!

2. Is your puppy or cat being so cute right now? Take videos of them being cute during the 9:00 PM Eastern timeslot tomorrow night and put them in the comments!

1. "Ellen's Game of Games" on NBC. Seriously, would NBC even consider pre-empting this to show FuckMouth Von YapYap say racist lies about the border? If you have never seen this game show, it is THE BEST. Ellen DeGeneres asks people questions and takes perverse delight in hurling contestants through trap doors and up into the ceiling when they get the answer wrong. They get so scared because they think Ellen is going to kill them and make them dead! What idiots. They deserve it. (UPDATE: Oh man, fuck NBC News right now. We thought maybe they'd be the ones to hold out. All three of these networks better be fact-checking in real time, because fucker gonna lie.)

So there you go. Ten things that are better. (UPDATE: Or seven things.)

Of course the networks could always end up being total morons and running Trump's bullshit.

Which would be entirely unnecessary, as Jon Favreau points out.

No reason to treat Trump with more deference than they treated a real president whose approval rating was way more than a handful of bubbas in Alabama.

OK, it's been a crazy week, and it's only Monday. Have an OPEN THREAD.

Couple few weeks ago, your Wonkette (me) ended up in the ER with chest pains because some dick 40-millionaire decided to sue us. It was a very stupid day!

But God loves your Wonkette best, because of our excellence in mommyblogging and jabbing bad people in the eye with this here pointy stick. And so the ACLU of West Virginia has agreed to represent us pro boner-like, for love and America and so can you.

Perhaps you are like us, and two years ago rushed to send the ACLU some canned clams to help it in its fight against every extremely crazy thing Steve Bannon was doing. And then you reupped a year later. And then the second year, well ... maybe that just hit at a time you were a little tight, or had to fix the water heater, or didn't feel like getting out your checkbook and a stamp.

If you are so moved, please join Wonkette in reupping with the national org today (and if you are able, to make it a monthly), as well as giving a one-time gift to the West Virginia chapter, since they don't seem to have a recurring option on their site.

And as always, don't forget that we, Wonkette, are ad-free, grant-free, investor-free, and funded ENTIRELY by YOU. That's staff salaries, freelancers, health care, servers, and hairbows for the baby, who frankly has a problem. The widget below funds US (not the ACLU, don't have a confuse), and we'd thank you kindly to follow the instructions if'n you haven't already.

1. Pick "just once" or "monthly."

2. Pick an amount, like say "all of the money."

3. Click "paypal" if you are paypal or "stripe" if you are not paypal.

4. MONEY.

5. Carry on with your day, and with new posts below!

Welcome to another edition of Yr Sunday Nice Things feature, where we take a break from the daily craziness so we can decompress for a little while. Today, we're going to relax with the ineffable mental calm that comes from an oddly rectangular English cow. It's really beautiful to see what can happen when people all over the internet come together to collaborate on a little art project. We call it...
