The trick is really embracing fake feminism

On Sunday, Tavi Gevinson posted a parody of Ivanka Trump's creepy video about Karlie Kloss, perfectly skewering Trump's whole "women supporting women" act.

Gevinson's video starts off by playing Trump's original clip, but then segues into Gevinson standing in front of a TV screen depicting, not the Kloss-hosted Project Runway, but the earth in flames. At first, Gevinson's intonation is mockingly similar in tone to Trump's bizarre squeals and throaty laughter. But then Gevinson goes off-script—saying that she's "short-circuiting"—and reveals Trump's video's subliminal messaging.

"Women supporting other women. Oh, women supporting other women by supporting me," Gevinson says, faux empathy radiating from her face. It's a simple enough satire, but it's also devastating and effective. It demonstrates everything wrong with Ivanka Trump's embrace of feminism as a means to make money for herself. It also reminds us that Gevinson is a great actor and that we want to see her doing comedy. That will give us something to look forward to as the earth goes up in flames.

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person.
