Is Donald Trump Losing It??

Did you guys see this today??

Donald Trump invited the press to the White House Oval Office to watch him sign two executive orders. But after making a brief statement before the signing, the POTUS walked out of the room! Without signing!

Vice President Mike Pence tried to stop him to let him know he had forgotten to actually sign the documents, but you know Drumpf. It’s not like he’d ever admit to being wrong.

Watch as he makes Pence go get the order and follow him to sign it somewhere else (below):

The way we see it, there are two ways to read this.

The first option is that he walked out when asked by a CBS reporter about the LAST thing he wanted to talk about — the ongoing investigation into his ties with Russia.

As Bloomberg‘s Justin Sink wrote about the meeting:

But you can see in this vid that the question seems to come after Trump’s beeline has already begun.

That brings us to option number two…

This job is getting to him. Trump never seemed like he had the mental acumen for it in the first place, but now his “unpresidented” incompetence is being fanned by having to work harder than he ever has in his life.

No wonder he’s on the golf course so damn much.

Now if there were only some way to make him forget to do everything else he’s planning…

What do YOU think??

Apple’s WWDC 2017 Ticket Lottery Ends, Winners Begin Receiving Confirmation Emails

The ticket lottery for Apple’s 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference ended this morning at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and it appears that developers who won tickets are now receiving confirmation emails.



Apple has said all developers who won the ticket lottery can expect to see their credit cards charged with the $1,599 ticket fee by Monday, April 3 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, but some developers are already being charged.






Apple has used a lottery system to dole out WWDC tickets in recent years because interest in the conference far exceeds capacity. Approximately 5,000 developers are expected to attend the event, along with more than 1,000 Apple engineers and executives.



The 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference will start on Monday, June 5 and will last through Friday, June 9. The conference dates were first announced in mid-February, as this year’s event will take place at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, instead of in San Francisco.



At the Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple will host a keynote event to introduce new software updates, and developers will be able to attend more than 100 technical sessions and hands-on labs.



Developers who are not selected to purchase a ticket will be able to watch both the keynote event and sessions with engineers through the Apple Developer website and through the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.

Alec Baldwin Overdosed On Drugs In His Twenties!

Wow, scary stuff!

In his new memoir Nevertheless, out April 4, Alec Baldwin reveals something he’s stayed private about for 30 years: he once overdosed on drugs while in his twenties.

Speaking to GMA‘s George Stephanopoulos on Friday, the 30 Rock star opened up about the day he got sober — February 23, 1985 — and the battle with drugs and alcohol leading up to that day:

“I’m glad I got it when I did ’cause not many people get sober when they’re young. I got sober when I was just about to turn 27. And those two years that I lived in that white hot period, as a daily drug abuser, as a daily drinker… to my misery, boy, that was a tough time. There was really, really a lot of pain in there.”

See more from the candid interview (below)!

We’re so glad Alec got healthy!

Without his velvety voice, wintery blue eyes, and horrifying Donald Trump impression, the world would surely be a sadder place.
