There Is Only One App on Trump’s iPhone Right Now

17 minutes ago

President Trump has just a single app installed on his iPhone right now. Yes — you guessed it — it’s Twitter, according to Axios reporter Mike Allen, who cited a conversation with top White House officials. According to Trump staffers, the key to keeping Potus on task is limiting his down time, meaning less time to watch cable news and for firing off tweets. Loading up his schedule on his first international trip has worked well to this so far, according to Allen’s report. “Top White House officials tell me the key to forcing a more disciplined President Trump (like the one onstage overseas) is. »

‘American Gods’ Showrunners on How Trump Presidency Reshaped Neil Gaiman Series

46 minutes ago

A version of this story about “American Gods” first appeared in The Race Begins issue of TheWrap Emmy Magazine. When Neil Gaiman wrote “American Gods” in 2001, he could not have predicted the television adaptation of his beloved novel would be released under a Donald Trump presidency. Even the showrunners, Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, completed the show before the Republican took office and immediately called for a travel ban from predominantly Muslim countries. “The show was written in a progressive political climate, and is airing in an insane one,” Fuller said. “Our intent with the series was never to be political — it. »

Let’s just send Donald Trump to Westeros, see what happens. “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin ripped the President in a recent Esquire interview, likening our Commander in Chief to his most insufferable fictitious character. “I think Joffrey is now the king in America,” the writer told the magazine. “And he’s grown up just as petulant and irrational as he was when he was thirteen in the books.” Also Read: 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Trailer Teases the Big War Yet to Come (Video) Esquire also asked “Thrones” star Kit Harington what he thinks of the »

Hollywood Studios Fail Lgbtq Characters Again, Especially People of Color, Study Says

3 hours ago

Hollywood studios have again failed to deliver meaningful depictions of Lgbtq people in their films, GLAAD’s 2016 Studio Responsibility Index said. Despite the historic Best Picture Oscar win for “Moonlight” this year, the annual survey contains worse news for queer people of color. Inclusion of nonwhite characters in mainstream movies is down 5.5 percent from 2015, which fell over seven percent the year prior. The six major studios and one mini-major were analyzed and issued grades by GLAAD, with the most positive portrayals going to Universal Pictures.
