They’re not the same person

Cynthia Nixon, former Sex and the City star and current contender for governor of New York State, is not the character she once played on TV. No, really: Nixon is not Miranda Hobbes, as much as you might want her to be—and as much as some people might insist she is, as if that somehow disqualifies her for running for office. But instead of getting annoyed with that, Nixon has enlisted comedian John Early to show just how ridiculous it is for people to keep mistaking her for Miranda.

In a new campaign ad, Early sits down for an interview with Nixon to talk about her platform and the issues she cares about, but continually gets distracted with burning SATC-related questions, even zoning out and transforming into his own version of Carrie Bradshaw while she's discussing her initiatives. We're here for the Jim Halpert-inspired side eye that Nixon gives the camera when Early says, "I couldn't help but wonder..." 

By the end of the ad, though, after actually hearing about her campaign and political goals, Early and his inner Carrie have become more politically aware, wondering why people are still focusing on Nixon’s past as an actor when she has such a solid platform.

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.

But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.

The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
