The Democratic National Committee (DNC) haspublicly responded to the disturbing tweets President Donald Trump wrote about host Mika Brzezinskithis morning.

DNC Deputy Communications Director Adrienne Watson said in a statement obtained by Elite Daily,

Trump’s bullying tweets are an attack on women everywhere. Trump has a long pattern of making demeaning, sexist and discriminatory comments about the women who take him on.

The fact that they happen frequently doesn’t make them okay. From his Twitter slurs to his policies, we have a president who continues to show us he has no regard for women and whose comments demean the office he holds.

The president has a habit of tweetingnegative, often shocking things about his critics calling media outlets like CNN and fake news, and even going so far as to make veiled threatsto critics.

But it is his treatment of women that is particularly disturbing. In the past he has called Arianna Huffington unattractive both inside and out,and even insulted MSNBC/NBC reporter Katy Tur during the election, tweeting that she should be fired and calling her Little Katy and a third-rate reporter after which she required a Secret Service escort and received threats from Trump supporters.

He also infamously said then-Fox correspondent Megyn Kelly must have had blood coming out of her whereverduring a Republican primary debate when she asked him about his treatment of women.

One of Kelly’s questions pertained to his frequent name-calling, referring to women as fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals. His response? That the country is too politically correct.

While Republican senators have responded with outrage and Brzezinski herself seems to be taking it in stride, the DNC statement does not mince words about the president’s latest reactionary tweets.

The president’s comments on and policies pertaining to Muslims, immigrants and refugees,non-Christians, andwomen, and continued calls for a border wall between the United States and Mexico are not just disturbing they’re reportedly emboldening white supremacists. Several outlets have reported a marked rise inreported hate crimesandracially motivated bullyingsince Trump took office.

So it’s not a stretch to postulate that his comments on women have a similar effect on our culture.

Trump’s attack on Brzezinski is not just a childish, vile insult itconflates a woman’s worth with her looks, and it speaks to a larger cultural and political problem women in the United States are facing.

Trump has stated in the past that he will cut funding to the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women, which provides federal leadership in developing the national capacity to reduce violence against women and administer justice for and strengthen services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

He views it as a waste of taxpayer funds. In fact, he has made it seeminglyclear before that he believes that sexual assault is just a natural result of men and women working together in close quarters:

Additionally, he has stated in the past that he would ban abortion and that women who terminate pregnanciesshould face some formof punishment.

This is not just talk, either: the Senate version of the healthcare bill would strip Planned Parenthood of all Medicaid funding for one year and reduce its budget by $22 billion over 10 years. Meanwhile, the cost of birth control would rise significantlyunder the bill.

The Trump administration’s policies and Trump’s tweets dovetail: they both speak to how this administration views women. And misogyny kills.

So while it’s all well and good to sit back with the popcorn and watch senators like Lindsey Graham perform outrage and still vote within party lines, the fact of the matter is that the president’s tweets do matter.

They mattered when the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals was determining the discriminatory nature of the travel ban. And they matter when it comes to what women can expect and should brace themselves for in the months and years to come.

JAY-Z, do you really think you can release an album that divulges deep secrets about your relationship as a response to Beyonc’s masterpiece, , and NOT have the BeyHive come foryou?

JAY’s new record is an impressive narrative about his marriage, career, experiences as a black man, and all of that fame, fame, fame and while he is brutally honest (which we appreciate!), he STILL cheated on Beyonc (which we HATE! HONESTLY, WTF?!?!).

For example, why is everyone is so surprised to find out JAY-Z actually cheated? He raps on his new album,

Like the men before me, I cut off my nose to spite my face. I never wanted another woman to know something about me that you didn’t know. I promised, I cried, I couldn’t hold.

I suck at love. I think I need a do-over. I will be emotionally available if I invited you over.

And in the last verse, shares,

And if my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do. If they ain’t look at me the same, I would prob’ly die with all the shame.

You did what with who?’ What good is a mnage trois when you have a soulmate? You risked that for Blue?’ I wasn’t a superhero in your face. My heart breaks for the day I had to explain my mistakes.


Beyonc, the BeyHive hasalways been on your side.

It looks like fans are upset JAY-Z would do that to Queen Bey.

Woo! You guys said it.

But, you have to give it to him. JAY doesn’t hold back. (Hm, an album sharing your deepest darkest secrests with the world? Wonder where you learned that one, JAY )

As part of his open-book policy with , JAY also addresses Becky with the good hair, that fight he had with Solange in the elevator, and the amazing love he has for all of his children, making this album a complete, emotional

On his music confessions, JAY told iHeartRadio,

4:44′ is a song that I wrote, and it’s the crux of the album, just right in the middle of the album. And I woke up, literally, at 4:44 in the morning, 4:44 a.m., to write this song. So, it became the title of the album and everything. It’s the title track because it’s such a powerful song, and I just believe one of the best songs I’ve ever written.

Any follow up thoughts on the fact it took you cheating on your gorgeous, perfect, goddess wife to write one of the best songs you’ve ever written?

We’ll wait.

As he enters the room, Kourtney asks Scott to “shut the door for a second”, before saying: “I just wanted to tell you…that I’m pregnant.”

Cut to Scott, who is totally lost for words. In fact, he only manages to say “what?” and in the most confused way EVER.

3. Here’s hoping they’ve got used to the idea now, and are back to being like this.

As I stood in the shower massaging the shampoo into my short hair I just felt good. It was more than the hot water cascading on my back, though. I felt peace, and that feeling was better than most anything I’ve come to discover.

“Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere,” I said out loud to the Lord.

Then I kind of giggled to myself. It seemed ironic to me that I felt so content with my life at the moment. From one angle it might appear as if everything were crashing down upon us, as if the comfortable existence we had created with our own hands was tumbling and crumbling apart. Yet, for the life of me, I couldn’t seem to get bothered about it. We were following God’s plan, and that made the rest fade away. It made the crashing waves recede, and it made clarity possible. I would rather be in God’s will in a cave halfway across the world than outside His plan in a comfortable mansion.

What the world might view as failure, I saw as faith.

What might appear to be calamity was God’s intervention, His perfect timing.

What would sensibly be titled a tragedy from a worldly perspective just seemed like a next step for kingdom purposes.

What seemed out of our control was most definitely out of our control, but also a wonderful opportunity to surrender.

What seemed crazy to others probably meant you were on the right track!

When you’re following God’s will, seeking His face, and giving your life in infinite surrender, even what seems like a valley is just a walk of total trust.

It’s an opportunity for God to provide.

Have you ever heard, “ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

When you ask God for something don’t be surprised when He answers. Even if the answer isn’t exactly how you imagined it would be.

Trust is walking forward even if you don’t understand how a particular path gets you best to where you want to go.

Hope is believing you’re getting there.

Faith is accepting what the world calls failure, if God calls it victory.

nal bleaching. It’s the newest personal manicuring trend making waves in America’s heartland. For those of you thinking – “wait, people bleach their butt hairs?” – no, sweet child, no. Anal bleaching is exactly what it says, bleaching the anus.

According to rumors, the trend started when an unnamed porn star turned TV actress got a full front to back wax only to discover – horror of horrors! – her butthole was a darker color than the rest of her. When she asked her spa’s technician what could be done, the first anal bleaching procedure was invented.

There’s something morbidly fascinating about serial killers, right? Why else would shows about solving crimes like NCIS, Criminal Minds and Broadchurch be so popular.

For the everyday individual, we wouldn’t dream of actually committing any of the heinous crimes we’re so fascinated by, but for some reason we just can’t look away.

Criminology professor Scott Bonn suggests that learning about crimes gives us a shot of adrenaline, and allows us to experience fear in a controlled environment. He goes as far as to suggest that real-story crime documentaries are to adults what monster movies are to children.

There are the few well known and widely discussed serial killers, like Jack the Ripper and Ted Bundy, but terrifyingly there have beenlots of other pretty twisted people out there too.

So, on that bright and cheery note, here are fourlesser-known but seriously terrifying serial killers for you to get your fix of monsters (lets just hope they’re not under your bed):

Robert ‘Butcher Baker’ Hansen

LANDOV/Press Association Images

His story is the perfect plot for one of those ‘based on a truestory’ horror films. Hansen was a quiet husband, father and bakery owner. But it turned out he was also ridding his Alaskan town of sex workers, one by one.

Following a lot of female rejection as a teen, Hansen developed a deep seated hatred for women.

He confessed to killing seventeen women over a twelve year period, often taking them out into the wilderness, letting them loose, and hunting them down like wild animals.

He went undiscovered for many years until 1983, when Cindy Paulson was found with her hands in cuffs, claiming to have been abducted by a man who kidnapped her, took her back to his home where he tortured, abused and sexually assaulted her and even kept her chained by her neck to a post in his basement.

Not long after, police traced it back to Hansen, raided his home and found evidence linking him to the multiple missing women.

He was sentenced to 461 years in prison, and died in 2014. In 2o06 when Associated Press requested an interview with him, he said “I do not care so much for myself, but you journalist [sic] have hurt my family so very much,”

Earle Leonard Nelson aka ‘The Gorilla Killer’

Winnipeg Police Service

At the age of 10, Nelson’s pushbike collided with a car and he was unconscious for six days. When he awoke, it was recorded that his behavior became much more erratic, violent and he became prone to periods of memory loss.

He was committed to mental institutions several times before he turned 25, and he then embarked on a terrifying killing spree in early 1926. He killed at least 22 people, mostly by strangulation and his victims were often landladies from whom he rented rooms.

Most terrifying were the murders of Emily Paterson andLola Cowen. He had a penchant for hiding bodies under beds, and slept with the body of murdered 14-year-old Cowen under his bed for three days – despite having mutilated the body in a manner not dissimilar to Jack the Ripper.

Emily Paterson was a 27-year-old housewife, Nelson was able to get into her house while she was cleaning, brutally rape and murder her, and stash her under her own bed before fleeing the town.

She was discovered by her own husband as he knelt by their bed to pray for her safe return.

Nelson was eventually captured and a subsequent trial linked Nelson to 22 murders. There were many, many more very similar murders in the same areas but there was not enough evidence to link him to them.

He was found guilty and hanged at the age of twenty nine, in 1928.

Peter Krten

IMAGE/ German Federal Archive

Starting in the summer of 1929 and spanning a terrifying fifteen months, Krten’s murders held the city of Dusseldorf, Germany, gripped with terror. Hisvictims were regularly found brutally slashed, bludgeoned and sometimes even sexually assaulted and local sensationalist media portrayed him as the “Dusseldorf vampire”, claiming he found pleasure in drinking his victim’s blood.

Peter had a history of violence, going back to when he was only nine years old. He claimed to have pushed a friend off a raft as they played on the river Rhine. When another boy dived in to save him, young Krten held him under water until he suffocated. The two deaths were attributed to an unlucky accident and Peter was cleared of any blame.

His first murder is believed to be that of 10-year-old Christine Klein. While looking for somewhere to rob, he came across her asleep in bed he sexually assaulted and stabbed the young girl as her parents work in a pub below.

He told Dr Karl Berghis primary motive was one of sexual pleasure, explaining that itwas why the number of stab wounds varied between victims – because it sometimes took longer to achieveorgasm.

He claimed to have committed 79 criminal acts in total, but he was only found guilty of nine murders and seven attempted murders in total.

Hereceived 9 death sentences in total and was executed byguillotine on July 2, 1931, in Cologne, Germany. Before his death, he asked the prison psychiatrist:

“Tell me. After my head has been chopped off, will I still be able to hear, at least for a moment, the sound of my own blood gushing from the stump of my neck? That would be a pleasure to end all pleasures.

David Parker Ray AKA The Toy Box Killer

There was not enough evidence to convict David Parker Ray of a single murder, but he has been linked to over 60 deaths.

He spent $100,000 in total renovating a motorhome and turning it into his ‘toybox’, a transportable torture chamber for his victims. It included a gynecologist chair, whips, saws, pulleys and an electric cattleprod.

Upon waking in the terrifying room, victims would be greeted by a chilling tape recorded by Ray, which began “Hello there bitch. Are you comfortable right now? I doubt it.”

It goes on to detail the months of torture the victim would live through and what they can expect during their time with Ray and his female accomplice, believed to be his daughter.

“We are very selective when we snatch a girl to use for these purposes. It goes without saying you have a fine body, and you’reprobablyyoung. Maybevery young.

We snatch girls in the early to mid teens,sexually developed but still small bodied. Scared sh*tless, easy to handle and easy to train.And they usually have tight little p*ssies and a**holes.”

As a general rule, however, Ray didn’t like to kill his victims.

Instead, he preferred to drug most of them with a dangerous cocktail ofsodium pentothal and phenobarbitol, which enabled him to mess with his victim’spsychological state enough to convince them that everything they experienced either didn’t happen or was a nightmare, and release them back into the world.

He was only discovered when one of his victims managed to escape and go to police in 1999. Other victims then came forward, admitting that until then they had mistaken their horrifying memories for night terrors and hallucinations.
