As a middle school principal, how do you deal with somebody like Trump? As a middle school principal or as a member of Congress? Being a middle school principal, I would argue, really prepares you for Congress. You’re absolutely right. In my school, I would call him and his parents into my office. And we
[embedded content] On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver typically does a deep dive into a topical issue, usually one that is currently unfolding or relevantly recent. In the latest episode, Oliver takes aim at the very concept of American history–or rather, the terrible ways in which we as Americans choose to remember that history. Oliver began
Spoilers for season 2 of The Umbrella Academy ahead. “Did we actually… succeed at something?” Klaus Hargreeves (Robert Sheehan) asks in near-tearful disbelief in the final scene of The Umbrella Academy season 2, as he and his siblings hurtle back through time into what appears to be 2019. You can’t blame him for being incredulous—so
“This shit has to be a hit and if it’s not, I swear to God I’m going to go crazy,” Aminé says, laughing into the receiver from somewhere in Los Angeles’s San Fernando Valley. He’s talking about “Woodlawn,” a song named after the neighborhood in the Northeast section of Portland, Oregon, where he was raised,
Rock’s greatest bands have never been limited by the sonic parameters that define the loudest of stadium-shakers; in fact, there’s a strong case to be made that this genre’s all-time greats could produce a ballad as easily as they could a serious thrasher. In their new single “Bleed Over Me,” 308 Ghost Train establish themselves

Two months after they were launched into orbit, SpaceX’s crew Dragon has made a splashdown landing in the Gulf of Mexico just after 2:45 pm ET. Their capsule was quickly brought onto SpaceX’s GO Navigator recovery vessel, where the astronauts safely disembarked.

Dress, Mara Hoffman. Her own jewelry worn throughout. Justin Ervin Dialing in from a farm in Nebraska, where she is sequestered with her husband and seven-month-old baby boy, the supermodel opens up to close friend Kristen Bell about the “astronomical pain” of her natural childbirth, standing up for racial equality, and why she is not
WASHINGTON D.C. — The announcement came on the last Sunday of 2019. “I have been in some kind of fight—for freedom, equality, basic human rights—for nearly my entire life,” John Lewis said on December 29, revealing his stage IV pancreatic cancer diagnosis. “I have never faced a fight quite like the one I have now.”
Welcome to another edition of Grooming Gods. This week: Jaden Smith just obliterates the competition. Simon Porte Jacquemus This selfie angle is extremely high-risk, but Simon’s classic crewcut will make anyone look good. Kevin Love (and friend) Bandanas for all the best-groomed boys and girls! Jaden Smith From the pearls to the curls to the
LeBron James is the sort of player that makes our current era of positionless basketball possible. He’s a fantastically well rounded superstar who can do it all. No one understands the importance of a balanced approach quite like James—he scores when he needs to, pulls off historic chasedown blocks when called to, and slings it
It’s August 1st, which means it’s time to celebrate one of our favorite nerd holidays, Spider-Man Day. On this day, the iconic web-slinger made his first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962. 58 years later, Spider-Man remains one of the most popular superheroes of all time. Did someone say #SpiderManDay?! 🕷️: https://t.co/9OtGLLjFD2 pic.twitter.com/nlR5quSGPE —
Christopher PolkGetty Images It’s no secret that Adele is a huge Beyoncé fan. When she won the Grammy for Album of the Year in 2017 for 25 over Lemonade, she used much of her speech to praise Bey. “You are our light,” she said then. “And the way that you make me and my friends
That’s awesome. You mentioned in that video that you used to draw your teammates before games back in the day. Well, it was rare that I got [to the locker room] before everybody. [Laughs.] But if I did, I’d get in there and put something on the chalkboard just to lighten everybody up. Just to
After 141 long days without NBA basketball, the league returned Thursday night with a riveting doubleheader that saw both games come down to the final second. LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Anthony Davis, Rudy Gobert, Zion Williamson (sort of), and several other familiar faces re-entered our lives in a game-playing capacity. It was nice to see.
Submitted for your consideration on this fine Friday: who is your favorite fictional captain, and why? We’ve covered the finest Star Trek captains in the past (the correct answers are Sisko and Kirk, I will not be taking questions at this time), but there are a whole lot of captains to be found across popular
If you’re searching for the best aftershave, the first thing to keep in mind is that there are many reasons you might get razor burn after shaving. You’ve got to be meticulous with your shave regimen: warm water to open the pores, followed by a pre-shave oil or lotion to soften the hair and skin.
1936: Edward VIII Abdicates the Throne The monarchy entered into a constitutional crisis on December 11, 1936 when Edward VIII, who was set to take the throne after his father’s death, announced his abdication. In the Prince’s speech over radio broadcast, Edward spoke of his inability to carry out his duties without the woman he
The extensive measures taken by the NBA to create a secure, coronavirus-free bubble in which to conclude its season have been well-documented and, so far, remarkably successful. But the process the league went through to build enough courts to host 22 teams, and make them safe, was in some ways just as complex a challenge.
A Molotov cocktail of melodies awaits all who take a peek at King Falcon’s new music video for “Shake! Shake! Shake!” this July, and believe it or not, none of them are sourced from the software other artists are using to make rock, pop, hip-hop and even jazz in 2020. It’s obvious in “Shake! Shake!
Still, he’s not as sad as the photos would have you believe. “[The Phanatic] is representing all the Philadelphia fans,” he added. “So it’s quite an opportunity, but also a responsibility. The Phanatic has to do his best to make sure the team knows that the fans are still behind them.” When the league started
Earlier today, Donald Trump tweeted once again about how mail-in voting is “fraudulent,” finally going so far as to finally do what so many of us have predicted he was eventually heading for, when he suggested delaying the 2020 election. He followed up that idea with question marks–three of them–so it’s clear he’s leaving himself
Golf was one of the first big-time pro sports to return during the coronavirus era, and the inescapable post-quarantine story was Bryson DeChambeau. Specifically, his body: Looking a little bit more like a linebacker than a PGA Tour pro, the 26-year-old was suddenly hitting the absolute bejeezus out of the ball, taking preposterous angles and
There’s never a wrong time to welcome new Beyoncé content, but the arrival of her new visual album Black Is King on Disney+ feels even more necessary and cathartic right now. On Juneteenth, Beyoncé declared her secretive project Black Is King was on its way with a stunning surprise trailer. Bey wrote, directed, and executive-produced
We’re now over two months into the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement globally. By and large the media has stopped reporting on the marches and protests across North America with the same frequency and urgency as they were two months ago, but they’re still happening and they still matter. And while the spotlight
When photos of Anthony Davis wearing protective eyewear first popped up on social media yesterday afternoon, it felt like a tipping point. Goggles aren’t new to Davis. In high-school he rocked prescription lenses (and here’s photographic evidence of them coming in handy!) but this was different. It was transformative. Anthony Alcindor. Anthony Jabbar-Davis. A soulful,
Welcome back to Fit Diaries, where GQ asks our favorite style lords to document a week through their outfits. Up next: Atlanta-based suit-maker, and long-time GQ style entourage staple, Sid Mashburn.

Screaming inside your heart? That’s so three weeks ago. The new trend is to record your primal quanren-scream and send it to be played in the scenic fjords of Iceland. Sounds therapeutic. This is the pitch for “Looks Like You Need to Let It Out,” from the good folks and the tourism board of Iceland,
Most of the time when people talk about keeping things fresh below the belt—you know, avoiding swamp crotch—they joke that you’re doing it as a favor to your significant other. Maybe it’s many insignificant others—no judgment from me there. What I will judge, though, is whether or not you’re taking care of yourself for yourself.
Though a third season of the hit HBO series Big Little Lies is far from guaranteed, the next best thing has arrived.
