Anchorman's bumbling Ron Burgundy would be a way better president than Donald Trump.
Donald Trump's inability to correctly identify Dayton, Ohio as the site of a recent American mass shooting (he offered his thoughts and prayers to Toledo, Ohio instead) has caused some folks on Twitter to compare him to Will Ferrell's Anchorman character, Ron Burgundy.
trump is the Ron Burgundy of presidents, just reading whatever is on the teleprompter. Toledo doesn't even sound l… https://t.co/5wcB7h4EMO— James Michael Sama (@James Michael Sama)1565017022.0
Except, that's kind of an unfair comparison to Ron Burgundy. Sure, Ron Burgundy is a doofus who will read absolutely anything he sees on his teleprompter without a second thought. But he wouldn't spew race-baiting talking points that continually stir terroristic sentiments amongst his supporters.

In fact, Ron Burgundy would undoubtedly make a better head of state than Trump. While both men are absolute buffoons who likely fall on the lower end of the IQ spectrum, even Ron Burgundy would be too smart to blame a mass shooting on video games, a talking point so stupid that it falls apart the second anyone realizes that every other country without tons of mass shootings has video games, too.
Ron Burgundy also works out, and even if he's totally lying about his rep number, at least he's not hiring a doctor to probably lie about his health to a national audience.

In short, Ron Burgundy is a moron, but he wouldn't inspire terrorism so he'd still be a pretty good president compared to Trump. We've really set the bar below ground, huh?

The newly passed "BTS Law" allows K-pop stars to defer mandatory military service.
This week South Korea's National Assembly passed a law that is sure to have BTS ARMY cheering them on.
Generally speaking, all South Korean men are required to spend at least 18 months enlisted in the military, with the final cut-off for entry at age 28. But the new legislation — informally referred to as "The BTS Law" — will allow K-pop stars who meet certain requirements to defer until the age of 30.

"I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot."
Academy Award-nominated actor Elliot Page has come out as transgender.
Page, known for his roles in films like Juno, Whip It, and Inception, announced his coming out in a social media post today. "Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot," he wrote. "I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life."
Every year, Spotify listeners win out over devotees to other streaming platforms when they unveil their Spotify Wrapped playlists — a data driven analysis of what the year sounded like.
And while this year's personal Spotify Wrapped summaries are still loading, Spotify just released their data for their most streamed global music and podcasts of the year.
Announced the week following the Grammy nominations, Spotify Wrapped feels like vindication for artists who were snubbed by the awards committee, like The Weeknd and Halsey.
The summary also analyzed trends of when and how people were listening to content, noting increased popularity in nostalgia-themed playlists and work-from-home-themed playlists. Spotify users were understandably playing music from home more, which even caused an uptick in streaming music from gaming consoles. Listeners also tuned obsessively into wellness podcasts like never before.
After months of on and off again speculation, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky seem to be dating.
Obviously, this is good news if it's true. Can you imagine? For the coordinating outfits alone, I need it.
There have been a ton of icky white rappers over the years, but these take the cake.
On this day in 1990, Vanilla Ice's "Under Pressure" reboot "Ice, Ice Baby" debuted at No. 1 in the UK, kickstarting a Billboard run that would soon carry over to the states and invigorate a fleeting love for Vanilla Ice and his whole...vibe.
Of course, we all know how it ends. Vanilla Ice's credibility and career unraveled as quickly as it began. "Ice Ice Baby" took on a satirical identity larger than its creator, all while Robert Van Wrinkle refused to pay royalties (or even give a shout-out) to Freddie Mercury and David Bowie despite liberally sampling the track's true creators. Ice instead tried to cultivate a hollow rap identity, one where he was a hardened former-gang member from Miami and not a middle-class teen from a Texas suburb. The chorus of the song then came under fire by a black fraternity, who accused Vanilla Ice of ripping off their fraternal chant ("ice ice baby/ too cold, too cold.")
