Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out Donald Trump Jr. for Endorsing Parkland Conspiracy Theory
ABCAfter the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary, which left twenty young children and six adults dead at the hands of a gunman wielding a Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle, far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones called the tragedy "a synthetic completely fake with actors, in my view, manufactured." That insidious—and outrageously false—conspiracy theory didn't stop then-candidate Donald Trump from not only appearing on Jones' program (where he sang his praises), but also using Jones as an informal adviser.

"The Republican presidential nominee of the United States is being advised by a delusional sociopath. It speaks for itself," Mark Barden, who lost his 7-year-old son Daniel at Sandy Hook, told me. "What else can you say about that? It's disgusting."

Now, following the recent mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, wherein a 19-year-old armed with a legally-purchased AR-15 assault rifle gunned down 17 people, many of the same far-right kooks—including a Florida GOP representative's office—are coming out of the woodwork, claiming that the surviving schoolkids speaking out so eloquently for gun control are "crisis actors" in league with mysterious left-wing forces, or that they're age

White House embraces @realDonaldTrump, not @POTUS. Sad!
A year into his administration, President Trump's most notable contribution to political communications — from a technical perspective, anyway — has been his use of a personal Twitter feed in which @realDonaldTrump speaks out candidly, often bluntly. "The president is the president of the United States, so they're considered official statements by the president of the United States," former White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters in June. The focus on @realDonaldTrump has yielded one curious result: The devaluing of the official presidential twitter feed, @POTUS.

A Cult German Filmmaker's Merciless Mockery of Trump's America
Medea Film/Hollywood StorybookBERLIN—Given the pervasiveness of fake news and conspiracy theories in President Trump's dumbed-down America, it's appropriate that the late Ulli Lommel's intermittently amusing America—Land of the FreeKS (which had its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival) constructs its own alternative facts in order to shed light on our current political morass.

FreeKS is pretty much the sort of mock-documentary one might expect from a former Fassbinder actor and onetime pal of Andy Warhol. Saturated with campy vignettes enacted by a gleefully grotesque cast of characters, the film, according to one of Lommel's associates present at the premiere, aims for a synthesis of Fellini's Amarcord and Freaks, Tod Browning's still-shocking Depression-era horror film.

Despite the failure of FreeKS' satirical treatment of documentary clichés to live up to this hype, there's something bracing about Lommel's efforts to breathe new life into the taboo-shattering spirit of Fassbinder and Warhol. Instead of confronting the Trump fiasco head-on, the cheerful German in America hangs out in Southern California ("so different from the rest of America," as he rightly points out) and introduces us to a gaggle of eccentrics whose nuttiness mirrors our unhinged political landscape's bizarre topography.
