Aaron Sorkin, Jeremy O. Harris, Carly Simon, Ian Somerhalder, Iceland, The Shining, Jason Momoa: HOT LINKS

AARON SORKIN. Playwright and screenwriter of The Social Network sends open letter to Mark Zuckerberg: “But this can’t possibly be the outcome you and I want, to have crazy lies pumped into the water supply that corrupt the most important decisions we make together. Lies that have a very real and incredibly dangerous effect on our elections and our lives and our children’s lives.”

THE GOSPEL OF KANYE WEST. Kim Kardashian is a believer.

WITH A STRAIGHT FACE. Donald Trump Jr: “I wish my name was Hunter Biden. I could go abroad and make millions off my father’s presidency. I’d be a really rich guy.”

GETTING SERIOUS. Senate shifts tone on impeachment: “While no Senate Republican has said the charges against Trump rise to the level of being an impeachable offense, many have expressed concern over the drip-drip of damaging revelations.”

V-WARS. There’s a new vampire series starring Ian Somerhalder.

CARLY SIMON. Trump “was all over me like ugly on an ape.” “I don’t think there’s much interest outside himself,” she said. “What will happen with a narcissist is that they’re interested in themselves and anything that’s an extension of themselves, perhaps their children, but he’s not interested in the philosophy of great thinkers, I suspect.”

SCAM OF THE DAY. Playwright Jeremy O. Harris gets Seth Meyers to pay for premium tickets for 10 people to his play, Slave Play (our review here).

JASON MOMOA. I’m not very smart.

ICELAND. Bishop of Iceland apologizes to gay and lesbian community: ‘Bishop of Iceland Agnes M. Sigurðardóttir has apologised to the gay and lesbian community of Iceland on behalf of the country’s National Church. The apology was made during an interview on talk show Kastljós yesterday evening. Reporter Einar Þorsteinsson asked Agnes about the position the previous Bishop, Karl Sigurbjörnsson, took on same sex marriage. In 2016, under Karl’s leadership, the National Church strongly protested a bill introduced to protect the rights of homosexual people. The bill proposed granting pastors within the National Church the authority to wed same sex couples. In an interview taken at that time, Karl stated “I think we owe it to [the institution of] marriage to not toss it on the garbage heap without considering what we’re doing.”’

PSA OF THE DAY. Alex Trebek talks about his pancreatic cancer. “In nearly every country, pancreatic cancer is the only major cancer with a five-year survival rate in the single digits. Now, in order to help patients fight and survive this disease, more attention and awareness are needed. I wished I had known sooner that the persistent stomach pain I experienced prior to my diagnosis was a symptom of pancreatic cancer.”

HONEST TRAILER OF THE DAY. The Shining.

THIRSTY THURSDAY. Derek Spill.

Karamo Brown Says He Planted Seeds in Sean Spicer’s Hurtful Heart: ‘I Think He’s Exceptional’

Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown spoke out again about his relationship with Sean Spicer after his elimination from Dancing with the Stars on Monday and according to Brown, his friendship with the former Trump Press Secretary has blossomed.

Brown deleted his Twitter account in August after joining the show in response to backlash he received for remarks that he was “excited to sit down w/ [Dancing with the Stars co-star and former Trump Press Secretary Sean Spicer] and engage in a respectful conversation.”

Before deleting his Twitter, Brown had tried to clarify his remarks, but that didn’t go tell well either: “A trained social worker and my first instinct is always to sit down and have a conversation. But I understand how my comments could lead people to believe that I don’t understand the gravity of the situation. The personal is political… I’m reminded of it daily as a gay man of color. I know that representation matters–that it can affect change. I see you & I hear you. I’m bringing my personal message of love, equity & inclusion to the dance floor. I want it to eclipse & triumph over divisiveness & hatred.”

Now Brown says he has succeeded at something. He told People: “Through this process, Sean’s trailer has been next to mine and I have literally every day been planting seeds in his heart. ‘When you made this comment, it hurt me as a man. When you made this comment, it hurt me as a person of color. When you made this comment, it hurt me as a gay man.’ And literally, I could see each week those seeds … blossoming and that’s why he got emotional [when I was sent home].”

“Sean is literally someone who I would’ve never thought I could be friends with, and I’m going to walk away from here calling him a friend,” Brown added. “I’m going to continue the conversation that we’ve had outside of this. And I don’t think Sean’s going to make it to the end [of the competition], but I’m proud of him. I really am proud of him, because he’s had fun every week and I think he’s exceptional.”

Said Spicer of Brown: “It just speaks to what a great person he is, that he’s trying to bridge divides.”

TWITTER. We’re stopping all political advertising. “We’ve made the decision to stop all political advertising on Twitter globally. We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought. Why? A few reasons…”

VINDMAN. Impeachment inquiry witness said he tried to correct the transcript of the Ukraine call: “The omissions, Colonel Vindman said, included Mr. Trump’s assertion that there were recordings of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. discussing Ukraine corruption, and an explicit mention by Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, of Burisma Holdings, the energy company whose board employed Mr. Biden’s son Hunter.”

Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and former Vice President Joe Biden. Buttigieg said he thinks many voters are still undecided about their choices and could still vote for him.”

LAST CHRISTMAS. Emma Thompson says George Michael gave her his blessing to do the film based on his music.

RISING SEAS. New study presents far more dire outlook than scientists thought: “The projected flooding from that sea-level rise threatens hundreds of millions of people and vast amounts of infrastructure along coastlines across the planet. Scientists have attempted to estimate the number of people at risk, but according to a new study, all those numbers have been far too low.”

ESTANISLAO FERNANDEZ. The son of Argentina’s president is gay and a drag queen.
