We have receipts: The transparency group Property of the People has proof that the National Security Council paid taxpayer money to stay at Mar-a-Lago in March of this year. That's the strongest evidence yet, April Glaser writes, that Trump is directly profiting from the presidency.
Lololol: Ted Cruz now thinks “the media and the left seem obsessed with sex,” and believes that everyone should just lay off, man. Ruth Graham finds that pretty hilarious.
A lot to swallow: Darren Aronofsky's new movie Mother! is a real trip, Dana Stevens writes. The trailer makes it seem a little bit like a haunted-house horror flick, but it's deeply allegorical and “flamboyantly weird.” See it with a viewing companion who's down for a post-showing dissection.
For fun: That's a lot of centerfolds.
