Real talk: When I grow up, I want to be the type of grande dame fashion editor who wears caftans while holding court on a chaise on some impossibly elegant veranda somewhere, tossing off witty observations and pithy quips. (Who am I kidding? I’m doing that right now—minus the veranda and chaise. Okay, so just the…

Throughout the entire Mueller investigation, Donald Trump and his band of criminal cronies have claimed that the probe would not yield any fruit because none of them have done anything wrong.

Do you remember Ruben Studdard? Of course you do! That was a rhetorical question! But just in case you don’t, Ruben won American Idol in 2003, back when that actually mattered, and then later that year released his first album, Soulful, which went platinum.
