Hey, big Friday news, and it's that former Fox News idiot Bill Shine is the latest White House comms director to become a former White House comms director, but that's not what we're here to talk about. We already knew the White House comms department was a barren wasteland of incompetence and regret, and had a feeling Shine wouldn't last long anyway.

We need to talk about what ELSE happened today, which is that Donald Trump flew to Alabama to meet with tornado survivors, like a normal president would, and while there he ... um ... well, he autographed the tornado survivors' ... Bibles? Also like a totally normal president would?

And yes, this has been confirmed by other reporters, so it's not just Josh Dawsey FAKE NEWSIN'.

As Yr Wonkette's resident scholar of Bible, we have questions. Like ...

Was this his idea? Like, did somebody have a Bible and he just spontaneously grabbed it and signed it before anybody could stop him?

Or did some sorta APB go out like "If you have been tornadoed and you would like Dear Leader to sign your personal copy of the Word of our Lord, then bring it with you on Friday"? And did it specify that Trump would not be signing copies of the NIV Bible, as he, a devout man, only considers the King James to be true and valid?

Isn't there a thing in that book about men having false Gods or some such yip yap?

Can you imagine if Barack Obama had done this? Oh my GOD. (Pfffffffft, more like can you imagine Obama signing a KORAN from KENYAGHANISTANDONESIA.)

Can we call Trump supporters a weird fringe cult now?

Does he think he wrote those Bibles, just like he thinks he wrote The Art Of The Deal?

How are the Bibles not catching his little paws on fire?

Also, know how he signs things like this?

And like this?

And like this?

(The first two are HILARIOUS JOKES. That last one is a real reimbursement check to Michael Cohen for paying Stormy Daniels to keep her silent about how she had a conjugal visit with Trump's yeti pubes and Mario Kart dick, which Cohen was also instructed to lie about to Trump's wife Melania. Anyway, let's not get distracted form our questions about Trump SIGNING BIBLES.)

The point about how he signs stuff with a big fat Sharpie is, doesn't the Sharpie jam too hard into that ultra-thin (for his AND her pleasure) Bible paper and tear it up?

And isn't there also a thing in Bible in the book of Revelation about how for "every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book"? Doesn't Trump adding his big gnarly illiterate fatfuck signature count as "adding unto these things"? And if so, shouldn't Trump's advisers watch out for him to develop "noisome and grievous sores" all over him, since that is the first of the plagues mentioned in Revelation 16?

And if Trump did develop "noisome and grievous sores," would anybody notice, considering how his whole face is a "noisome and grievous sore"?

Would they think Trump had suddenly shapeshifted into his firstborn son?

Finally, we see paper towels in that picture. Did he forget to throw them at the tornado survivors' heads, since that is how he did relief work in Puerto Rico?

Wonkette sends our thoughts and prayers to the survivors of the Alabama tornadoes. (If you'd like to help them, click here.)

But don't worry, we're not going to sign any Bibles and send them to Alabama, because we are not W-E-I-R-D like Donald Trump.

Hooray, it's time for yet another dispatch from Fox News's big fun week of failure. (No, we mean even more failure than usual.) While all of Twitter is being annoying and talking incessantly about nothing but Bran and Daenerys and Carl and Peg or whoever they are, we have been (ignoring it and) focusing on all Fox's sadness, starting with Pete Buttigieg's town hall, where he called Fox News a piece of shit to its face. Then we laughed and laughed at Fox News idiot Pete Hegseth, who is sending lots of begging to today's college graduates, that they might immediately get dropped on their heads and forget all their education, so they might grow up to be the Fox News viewers of the future.

Oh, and we haven't even had a chance to LOL at the epic hilarity of Steve Doocy trying to do man-on-the-street interviews in Midtown Manhattan, shoving the mic into the faces of New Yorkers who literally don't care if he goes and plays in traffic. That was fun!

But the point of this post is that we have finally learned what makes at least some Fox News viewers tick, and it is that Tucker Carlson "laughs like a girl." That is not us saying that, that is a Fox News fan lady telling the Washington Post's Erik Wemple why she loves Tucker Carlson so much.

Old White Guys Try To Explain Abortion

Throwing the baby out with the bathwater. It's your Sunday show rundown!


Michael is out, so I'm taking over your Sunday Show Rundown. This week everyone was talking about those awful abortion laws worming their way through state legislatures. As usual, most of the men were tripping on their dicks while trying to talk about vag. Luckily, there's enough women around to ladysplain things.

Bernie Sanders went on Meet the Press for the first time in FOREVER and played his greatest hits for all the kids. Sanders criticized Joe Biden's environmental policy (which is literally just "beat Trump"), stating that it wasn't "good enough." Sanders is right! (NO FIGHTING.)

SANDERS: Beating Trump is not good enough. You have to beat the fossil fuel industry, you have to take on all the forces of the status quo who do not want to move this country to energy efficiency and sustainable energy.

But then Chuck Todd asked Bernie a loaded question about women getting "sex-selective" abortions and the whole interview went off the rails. Bernie struggled to answer the dumbass question and came across looking stupid despite having spent the better part of the last week in Alabama railing against abortion bans.
