HOLLYWOOD—God bless America, and how’s everybody?

No wonder Stormy Daniels feels so insulted by $130,000.

The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has decided to step down. His leadership brought tremendous success to Starbucks, but he wants to spend more time at home with his family, and anyone else who wanders in off the street to use the bathroom.

Universal announced the October release date for the final Halloween movie featuring a final showdown with the masked killer Michael Myers and the women he’s stalked. As well, MGM is releasing a Halloween movie sure to terrify Millennials. It stars a cell phone with 2 percent power.

Psychology Today published a study seeking to find out the psychology behind why fakes news spreads faster on social media than real news. It’s the titillation and gossipy nature. All I know is that the day Donald Trump was elected president, everybody on Facebook got a psychiatry degree.

The Southern Poverty Law Center said it has removed 110 Confederate monuments over the past year. No hard feelings.

My parents took me to the drive-in to see “Damn Yankees” when I was 6 years old, and I remember I threw a fit when it turned out to be a musical instead of a Civil War movie.

The Today Show interviewed Clinton for the launch of a new political thriller he co-wrote called “The President is Missing.” Clinton said Trump’s getting away with more than Clinton got away with, which is a silly comparison. Trump’s been accused by women who Clinton could only dream of being accused by.

The White House on Tuesday said Roseanne’s racist tweet was indefensible, despite her attempt to blame Ambien. It was a Baby Boomer learning experience. For 50 years, we’ve known smoking marijuana gives you the munchies, and now we have learned that taking Ambien gives you the Nazi’s.

Trump posed proudly for pictures with Kim Kardashian in the Oval Office last week. Why not? After you’ve been busted with a porn star, what’s a meeting with the female star of the most famous sex tape in the world? Presidential historians are already dubbing it the VD Summit.

Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House due to their protest of the National Anthem. In 1814, Francis Scott Key set his lyrics to an English bar song as he sat on a British warship and watched a U.S. fort above Baltimore repulse a British naval slave-freeing expedition up the Chesapeake. If NFL players heard this story, they’d stand for Dixie instead.
