19 Things I'd Rather Do Than Respect Donald Trump

Easiest game of 'would you rather' I've ever played.

19 Things I'd Rather Do Than Respect Donald Trump

1. One night over winter break I was watching Game of Thrones with my roommate. I’d introduced the show to her like a week earlier, and we were about to finish the first season, right about to start that part, when, suddenly, the wifi went out. It was down. And I was crushed.

I would repeat this night like Groundhog’s Day before respecting a rapist.

2. I’d rather get bedbugs than respect someone who mocked a reporter for having a disability.

3. I’d room with Jar Jar Binks before respecting someone who called a lawyer requesting a break to pump breast milk “disgusting.”

4. I’d joyfully submerge myself in a vat of boiling oil before respecting someone who blacklisted journalists during his campaign for unfavorable reports.

5. I’d set myself on fire seventeen times before respecting someone who claimed that not paying federal income taxes “makes me smart.”

6. I’d willingly eat black licorice before respecting someone who took the time out of an actual party nominee discussion forum to brag about the size of his penis.

7. I’d suffer through middle school all over again before ever respecting someone who called Sen. Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas.” I can’t even digest the weight of my rage on this issue, so I’ll conserve it to three short bursts: Pocahontas was a real woman of a tragic, troubling story the Powhatan nation asserts Euro-Americans “should find embarrassing”; Sen. Warren deserves the basic courtesy of calling her by her name; and it’s insulting to imply that calling someone "Pocahontas" is somehow disparaging.

8. I’d give up carbs, sugars, and fats before respecting someone who mocked a fellow party candidate by exclaiming “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?

9. I’m just gonna post that again. Please take the time to read every word. “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”

10. I’d literally chew the skin off my hands before respecting someone who called all Mexicans rapists.

11. I’d lick the floor of a men’s locker room at the YMCA before respecting someone who called Rosie O’Donnell a “big, fat pig.” I don’t even know who Rosie O’Donnell is but I know that’s uncalled for, especially from a person of such influence and celebrity as Trump. He’s a bully. Even so, please notice I am not calling Trump a “big, fat pig,” because that’s fucking rude.

12. I would intentionally dislocate my hip before respecting someone who looked at two 14-year-old children and said “Wow! Just think. In a couple of years, I’ll be dating you.”

In case you forgot what a child is, that’s a young and vulnerable person whom it is frightening and disturbing to say such things to.

13. I’d gladly ram bamboo sticks under my fingernails before respecting someone who said, following an interview by Fox news anchor Megyn Kelly, “She gets out there and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions, and you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”

14. I would rather journey into Hell, witness the various torments contained therein, and emerge a shaken man than respect someone who disrespected Sen. John McCain’s military service because he was captured and taken as a prisoner of war.

15. I’d devote my life to proofing the same Geometry problems over and over before respecting someone who ever, in their life, said that “laziness is a trait in blacks.”

16. I’d chew rocks before respecting someone who called a Latina Miss Universe contestant “Miss Housekeeping” or “Miss Piggy.”

17. I’d jab keys into my earholes before respecting someone who encouraged supporters to assault protesters at rallies. Trump later claimed he "did not condone that at all." Alternately, here is a list of every time Trump has condoned that.

18. I would eat legit cat food before respecting someone who asserted he would force the military to commit illegal war crimes.

19. I’d give up all happiness forever before respecting a politician who declared that he “could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and [he] wouldn’t lose voters."

Hi. What the fuck?

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Bagel Recipes For Every Personality Type, In Case You Need Another Excuse To Eat Carbs

I'll approve of pasta for breakfast any day, but this is more socially acceptable.


I've had times in my life at which I've told myself I need to cut out carbs. Those moments last about a minute or two before I start daydreaming about rice and pasta.

Bagels hold a special place in my heart — for many of my college friends and me, a bagel sandwich was the go-to breakfast after a long night of drinking. Years later, I still love to indulge in the occasional carb-filled breakfast. As much as I love putting in an UberEats order from bed, nothing beats the feeling of pulling some fresh-baked bread or pastries out of the oven.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Ariana Grande released her first single called "positions" since "boyfriend" with Social House and it is a BANGER. This song is absolutely incredible and I am SURE you will agree with me once you listen.

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.
