How Trump’s Stooge in Congress Fucked Up His Wiretapping Investigation

Meet Devin Nunes. The Republican congressman from California is the chair of the House Intelligence Committee and earned his badge of infamy this week when he claimed that President Trump and his associates were “incidentally monitored.” On Friday, Nunes backed down from that claim. Very embarrassing. Read More >>

Genius Behind Suicide Squad Claims Trump Has ‘Perfect Genes’ and Doesn’t Eat McDonald’s

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the Trump appointee also known as one of the executive producers of the Oscar-winning (*shudder*) film Suicide Squad, was interviewed by Axios’s Mike Allen on Friday, and he had some insane things to say about our president. Read More >>

It Sure Looks Like That Viral ‘Trump Cat’ Site Is a Massive Troll

Trump is, to put it mildly, oversensitive. From the bully pulpit of Twitter he lays into the source of any perceived insult, be it a union leader, Saturday Night Live, or a teenage girl. Similarly, his organisations are known for their willingness to threaten legal action. In concert, that’s what made a story about a teenage girl targeted by Trump’s lawyers for her viral cat site so believable. But the facts don’t add up. Read More >>

A Middle Eastern Airline Is Mocking Trump’s Electronics Ban on Twitter

Starting this week, anyone flying on Royal Jordanian’s routes to the United States from cities like Amman won’t be allowed to bring any electronic device bigger than a smartphone into the cabin. And Royal Jordanian is expressing its displeasure with some next-level subtweets. Read More >>

9 Nuclear Explosion GIFs That Will Come in Handy During the Trump Era

President Trump has said that he wants a new nuclear arms race. And with more nuclear weapons in the world, there’s bound to be an accident sooner or later. At least that’s what the experts keep telling us. And when we inevitably descend into nuclear war, you don’t want to be caught without the proper GIFs. But don’t worry, Gizmodo has got you covered.

FBI Head Says He Has ‘No Information’ to Support Trump’s Bullshit Wiretapping Claim

Appearing before the House Select Committee on Intelligence today, FBI director James Comey couldn’t offer a shred of evidence to support Donald Trump’s outlandish and totally unsubstantiated claim that former President Obama wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower during the election. Read More >>

What Happened to Donald Trump’s Unsecured Tweet Machine?

It’s hard to know exactly what’s going on inside the White House these days. Is Jared Kushner still pouting the corner? Probably. Is Kellyanne Conway still putting her feet on the furniture? Surely. Is Trump still eating Big Macs on silver platters while he tweets from an old, unsecured Android phone? Actually, maybe not. Read More >>

Trump’s Crazy British Spy Scenario Actually Happened Once Before, in 1983

President Trump claims that the GCHQ were spying on him at President Obama’s request—a substantial charge to be making of an American ally, let alone a former president, without any proof. But do you want to hear a dirty little secret about Trump’s allegations? An identical scenario to the one Trump describes actually happened in the 1980s. Read More >>

Russian Bank Says Hackers are Trying to Make It Look Like Its Servers are Contacting Trump

The saga of Russian cyber-ties to Trump just gets more complicated. Reports of contact between an Alfa Bank server and one belonging to the Trump organisation have been circulating for months. Now, the bank says that US-based hackers have been attempting to make it appear that its servers are communicating with Trump since mid-February. Read More >>

The New York Times Ruined Your Chance to Stay in This Insane Trump Tower Airbnb

For the past few months, dozens of Airbnb users have enjoyed a rare privilege: sleeping in the same building as the President of the United States. This is thanks to a discrete listing for a flat“in a luxury building” that happens to be Trump Tower. The listing is now gone, and it’s all The New York Times’s fault. Read More >>

How Tiny Would Donald Trump’s Hands Be If They Were Black Holes?

Let me tell you a little something about gravity: It’s weird. A hundred or so years ago, Albert Einstein realised Isaac Newton’s laws didn’t work so well for really extreme situations, ones Newton never would have encountered on 17th century Earth. So Einstein said, alright, let’s come up with a new theory that looks like Newton’s theory, but also works for really big things and really fast things like planets and light—called general relativity. Einstein’s theory says mass causes the shape of space and time to change. Read More >>

Ordering Your Steak Well-Done Like a Baby Is Also Bad for Your Health

On Sunday, we learned Donald Trump eats his steak well-done with ketchup. If you’ve ever eaten steak—in Trump’s case, an expensive, tender piece of New York strip—you probably know that well-done with ketchup is simply not the way to go. The president should give medium-rare a try, not only for the sake of his palette, but because eating overcooked meat may increase your risk of cancer according to almost 50 studies. Read More >>

Donald Trump Has Never Publicly Shaken Hands With a Robot

Today, the Associated Press captured a photo of French President Francois Hollande shaking hands with Leenby, a Cybedroid robot. Hollande, like so many politicians around the world, has been captured on film shaking hands with many robots over the years. And I used to think this was simply a way to appease our future robot overlords. But I have a new theory: Robots don’t like the West’s new nationalists. Read More >>
