What a colossal shitshow.

I truly don't understand what these idiots were thinking, other than what some have suggested, that this was the plan all along.

Bizarre fucking times.

Megan Greenwall, Barry Petchesky, and Tom Ley were on the 'Hang Up And Listen' podcast and talked at length about what happened.

Maidment said in a note to staff Tuesday that he was pursuing an "entrepreneurial opportunity."
He probably means that he will be painting his mother's basement.

@UnDeadspin on Twitter seems to be dedicated to promoting new work by former DS contributors.

I miss getting Deadspin's take on goofy things like Kevin Harlan providing the call of Football Cat, or Kyle Walker having to play keeper.

I know you’re close to the subject but he wasn’t saying Harden sucks but more than Harden is inconsequential and boring relative to his production (especially historically as referenced by the Jordan comp) and it’s kind of hard to argue with that. Watching Harden play is like watching UVA play. You appreciate the work involved but you can’t help thinking you wasted your time.

Yes, I've heard that argument a thousand times, hence the word tired. And the choker label is ridiculous as well unless we also want to stop talking about the Warriors as such a great dynasty.

You don’t think it’s Harden’s fault that CP3 tore his hamstring in Game 5 of the WCF and that Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green shot a combined 1-19 in Game 7 of that series?

But his shot got blocked that one time in San Antonio so he's a major choker, yo.

I definitely don't agree with the choker stuff. That's BS especially in a team sport. I accept the overall premise is all I'm saying.

I just read that. Agreed. Everything he does about Trump is incredible. I hope someone has given him a book deal.

Those videos infuriate me. So obviously, dozens, maybe hundreds of people worked on those decorations. They may be a bit over the top, but they're pretty amazing and took a hell of a lot of work. Work that I'm sure Melania did almost none of. She probably approved some designs here and there, but you can be damn sure she wasn't putting up any trees or hanging stars.

And then after all these people do all of this work, they usher them the fuck out of there so that Melania can walk through - always alone - and pretend like she's just finishing up all this work she did.

Nothing sums up the disgusting world views of these people any better.
Totally Kafkaesque

Isn’t that view more “of course someone else did this but whoever they are doesn’t matter” and the other thems don’t even consider it a thing because that’s how life is done?
