Trump did better with white women in 2020’s exit polls. Why?

Initial exit poll results from Edison Research reveal white women preferred Trump over Joe Biden and that President Donald Trump’s popularity among white women increased in 2020, according to the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Simply put: White women approve of Trump’s racism.

Male Karen accuses ‘Biden crime family’ of stealing election in TV tirade

A man dubbed a “Karen” interrupted a press conference in Nevada and accused Democratic candidate Joe Biden of stealing the election. Footage of the incident was posted to social media on Wednesday and showed the man going on a tirade over the “Biden crime family.”

Wearing a tank top celebrating “BBQ, beer, and freedom,” the man also accused the media over helping to cover up the election theft.

  • It’s rare that I’m hooked on a show from the start. Like many of my Daily Dot colleagues, I consume a ton of TV, and I often find myself pushing through a second or third episode to see if it’s worth my time. But HBO’s The Undoing is an exception to that rule. The murder drama starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant does feel like Big Little Lies, the New York edition. In place of meandering coast drives, though, The Undoing (so far) delivers a more complex look at issues like class disparities among private school parents. I’m excited to see it unravel.
  • Like the couple’s marriage at its center, Apple TV+ film On the Rocks isn’t perfect. But its stars, Bill Murray and Rashida Jones, carry the film with wit. The Daily Dot’s Michelle Jaworski writes that luckily, despite its faults, On the Rocks “delivers for its leading stars.”
  • Hulu with Live TV ensures you always have something to watch.*

I’ve seen a lot of tweets about self-care this week. And yet, it feels trite to even attempt such a thing when the country’s political divisions are coming to a head and major issues—racial injustice, the coronavirus pandemic, and LGBTQ rights, just to name a few—are at stake. It’s certainly a privilege to tune out election tallies with bubble baths and yoga (though I’m generally a proponent of both). Still, whether you’re glued to cable news or deleting the Twitter app from your phone, you could probably use something to calm frayed nerves.

My personal elixir this week has been, of all things, blood oranges. I’m adding blood orange juice to bourbon sours for my nightcaps, but you could get the same sweet and sour result by adding a splash to soda water or even a hot tea with lemon. No matter your drink of choice, I hope you’re taking deep breaths and staying informed.
