We've figured out why Donald Trump wants to tank PBS so badly 

Everyone knows that that reality-TV gameshow host who is currently under investigation by the FBI for links with Russia knows how to hold a grudge. So it makes sense that he'd want to take on the station responsible for the most politically subversive road in America: Sesame Street.

Over the years, Sesame Street has fired shots at Trump, making him out to be some sort of cartoonish villain for some reason. In 2005, they did an Apprentice parody with an orange-haired muppet named Ronald Grump, the trash-wealthiest grouch in the world, who puts his name on every piece of trash in town. 





That wasn't the first time Grump tried to move onto Sesame Street. In 1988, a real estate tycoon who promised multi-floord can-diminums for grouches set up shup in and built Grump Tower. 



But apparently, Sesame Street wasn't content with the metaphorical distance of a felt puppet, and later recast Gump with none other than Joe Pesci. 

Here is backstage getting into character for 1994's Sesame Street 25th Anniversary special:





And here he is playing the villian of the 25th anniversary special:



A man synonmous wiht villiany on Sesame Street is the president.

There's nothing better than a pro-wrestling beef, right? Ok. Well, maybe when the beef is between the star of Commando/current reality-TV gameshow host and president of United States/former reality-TV game show host. 

The fight between Donald Trump and Arnold Schwarzenegger has been raging for months, with Donnie being really invested in Arnold's lackluster Apprentice ratings. Now, it's the Governators' turn.

Arnold fired a warning shot directly into Donald Trump's hair by bringing up the president's frankly shitty ass approval ratings, as well as his plans to cut Meals on Wheels and after school programs for kids. 

The tangerine dream hasn't responded because, I don't know, he's busy being investigated for Russian collusion, but he probably will soon becuase he's a wimp baby.

Yesterday was fun, right? The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and the FBI admitted that the president of the United States was under investigation for colluding with a foreign power. Spring has sprung.

Now, this is a complex issue, and who knows what will come of it. After all, it's not ever day that a White House official admits that they've been secretly meeting with Russian ambassadors and lying about it. Well, unless it's this White House. Thankfully, Seth Meyers has been doing a great job of unpacking this whole mess and does it with jokes. 

Laughter, it's all we have left.

The federal budget, as many will tell you, is mostly political theater. Budgets, in their entirety, never actually pass, but they are an exact document of what the president wants. It's a window into what the government would look like if the president didn't have to deal with any check and balances.

What would America look like if Trump had that? Well, as John Oliver explains, it would be mostly be about defending a worthless pile of rubble. Check it out.

Everyone remembers how envious we were that Justin Trudeau found someone who looks at him the way Ivanka Trump looks at Justin Trudeau. But now things are getting even grosser. 

The daughter of that reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency so he could plug her brands on Twitter went to Broadway production of the Canadian play Come From Away at the behest of Candian Prime Minister Trudeau. Of course, everyone in the world saw more to this because of how much they hit it off a month ago.

Thankfully, Deesus and Mero are here to put this in perspective: This is basically the real-life version of sliding into someone's DMs. Check it out.

Kellyanne Conway, the woman who spends some of the time making up terrorist attacks and some of the time plugging the president's daughter's clothing line, is a woman of mystery. How did she learn to pivot so well? Who knows.

One thing we do know is that she keep a hilarious glamor shot of herself close at hand. 

God, that's good stuff.

According to The AV Club, the shot comes from a 2009 "Pretty in Mink" calendar, a republican beauty calendar or something, in which Conway was featured as Miss January and can be found wearing “a navy sheared beaver jacket with fox trim and detachable hood.” I don't know. I want to die.

Donald Trump managed to make another splash on the hysterical Twitter scene yesterday after a couple weeks of surprising silence, by butchering an attempt at paying homage to the Irish in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Naturally, Stephen Colbert capitalized on the slip-up by reading more of the President's favorite (not so) Irish proverbs.
