The man who made death threats against Don Lemon last year will not have to answer for his harassment, ‘cause prosecutors say he’s too small of a fish … TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us … prosecutors in NY have declined to file…
Donald Trump just ruined Game of Thrones.
No, the President didn’t reveal any final season spoilers, although we’re pretty sure he wouldn’t hesitate to do so if it somehow meant Republicans would keep the House on Tuesday.
But he did go ahead and use the show’s iconic tagline on Twitter today, making sure no one can ever think of it again without also thinking of our racist Commander-in-Chief.
Here’s what we’re talking about:
Game of Thrones arrived on the television scene in the summer of 2011 by warning its viewers that “Winter is Coming.”
This was a nod to the dangerous White Walkers and how they would eventually breach The Wall and kill pretty much every human alive.
(Don’t ask. Just Google or, better yet, go catch up Game of Thrones before it returns in mid-2019 at some point. The show is really good.)
No three words are more associated with the most popular show of its era than these three. Winter is Coming.
So… what did Trump just write on Twitter? In the legendary font of the iconic HBO drama?
Sanctions are Coming.
Most folks clued in to the political arena think this is a reference to sanctions against Iraq.
And while many experts on the topic seem to believe this is a terrible idea, we’re not here to get into a complicated political debate.
(Except to say that maybe the President of the United States should not treat such a significant idea/step as a game or a joke.)
We are here, however, to simply say:
Come on, Mr. President!
To paraphrase critics of athletes who bring up social issues, can’t you stick to politics?
HBO agrees with this assessment.
The network has issued a brief statement in response to Trump’s use of its show’s tagline and font. It reads:
We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes.
It has also Tweeted, hilariously, “How do you say trademark misuse in Dothraki?”
And star Maisie Williams, who plays wildly popular character Arya, also expressed her disdain on social media:
Game of Thrones Season 8 will be comprised of just six episodes.
However, each will be movie-length, around 90 minutes if not more, many sources have confirmed.
But that isn’t the point right now.
The point is that Trump has already made it difficult to enjoy professional football and Twitter and ensured that we’ll never refer to our soccer game carpools as “caravans” ever again.
Did he really need to go ahead and link himself to Game of Thrones as well?
Cardi B and Nicki Minaj are feuding. It's intense, but at least nobody's throwing shoes anymore.
Cardi claims that she passed over working with artists like Little Mix, and that Nicki is essentially getting her leftovers.
Nicki's stans believe Nicki, Cardi's stans believe Cardi, and most people are just enjoying watching the two fight.
After Cardi ranted and raved and invited Nicki to physically fight, Nicki had a counter-proposal.
Nicki said that Cardi doesn't write her own lyrics … and "offered" for them to both take lie detector tests to prove it.
Naturally, as soon as someone mentioned that, The Maury Show had to weigh in.
Twitter is losing their minds over this whole beef. Take a look.
1. Nicki calls for peace
2. Did someone say "lie detector?"
3. Maury got some replies
4. Someone is betting on Cardi
5. Team Cardi spoke out
6. Some Cardi fans think Nicki is envious
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are having a baby.
You probably already knew this.
But the public does NOT yet know whether the Royals are expecting a boy or a girl.
This information was not included in the official statement by Kensington Palace that confirmed the major news.
However, a handful of astute (and/or possibly misguided) Internet users think they have cracked the gender code. They think Markle revealed the sex of her impending child via the color of the dress she wore for a state dinner in Fiji.
No, really. They think this.
Scroll down to see the gown in question, along with these excited responses to it…
1. Wearing Blue
2. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!?
3. Boom! It’s a Boy!
4. She’s Carrying a Boy!
5. Yes. We All Know This…
6. Here’s the Thing, Though:
Kristen Bell stars on The Good Place.
It may very well be the best show on television.
But the actress is currently residing in a rather bad place on Twitter, where numerous users are aghast over negative comments she made in regard to Snow White.
Wait… Snow White?!? In what context? Why?

Kanye West took a break from family time in Africa to get in touch with the world via social media once again, and his purpose was to speak out against mind control … and oddly, social media. Ye returned to Twitter Saturday afternoon after…
No, really, this time we know for certain.
This time it has to be true.
This time there is definitive proof, okay?!?
This is basically what Twitter users are saying in the wake of Princess Eugenie's wedding, at which Meghan Markle was spotted in an overcoat that folks are positive was used to hide her growing baby bump.
Yes, it's time for more Meghan Markle pregnancy speculation!
Do people have a point this time around, though?
Check out her ensemble below and then check out a handful of reactions from interested Internet users…
1. Rocking the Overcoat
2. Is She Bumpin?

It's been eight months since David Eason was fired from Teen Mom 2 as a result of his bigoted views and hateful slurs.
Unfortunately, this is 2018, a time when everyone has a platform — which means Dave still has a way to reach out to his fellow racists and homophobes.
Fortunately, for every idiot who pipes up in support of Eason's idiocy, there are a few thousand who are happy to condemn it — and it turns out some of them have some pretty specific shade to throw at reality TV's least favorite house husband:
1. Mr. Evans
2. Haters Gonna Hate
3. Straight Pride
4. To Be Fair …
5. Relax, Dave
6. The New Target
Kanye West has done it before and now he’s done it again … he’s deleted his Twitter and Instagram. Ye went dark around 1:45 PM PT Saturday without warning or any announcement as to why. However, his social media disappearance comes after a…
Welp, this was a different kind of Wheel of Fortune guess.
We've shared in the past some of the worst puzzle responses of all-time (such as THIS ONE), but the one featured on this page is really unlike any in game show history.
During a round of “same name,” Melanie Sinany looked at a nearly-completely board and proudly announced her guess for what was supposed to be “bridal & cold shower."
You would have said that if you saw the puzzle above, wouldn't you?
However, Sinany said Gold Shower instead, causing quite the uproar within the studio and across social media.
Host Pat Sajak simply uttered a “sorry” after this failed guess, while Vanna White stood at the board looking stunned.
(For those innocent and unaware, a golden shower is when one sexual partner urinates on the other. Ask our President about it. He'll explain.)
“A woman on Wheel of Fortune just guessed ‘GOLD’ for the part of the phrase ‘COLD SHOWER’ and I’ve never regretted failing to capture something on my phone more,” one Twitter user wrote in reply to this mishap.
“Idk how many times I hit rewind bc I was laughing soo hard and the camera was shaking."
Another chimed in as follows:
"#goldshower And just like that, Awkward Moment on @wheeloffortune and YouTube fame for Melanie after guessing Gold Shower.
"I wonder if Pat will say anything about it at the end of the game. Poker faces from Pat and Vanna were priceless."
"I feel blessed that I caught this magical Wheel of Fortune moment just now.”
