Where do I even begin? I literally wrote “WH Call Lesbian Doll?” in my LDIO notes for this week.

According to Tara McKelvey of the BBC and Jackie Alemany of CBS, someone at the White House said, “My inflatable doll is lesbian,” during a  conference call with the press on Iran policy:

It’s really too bad Sean Spicer is no longer doing daily White House press briefings — I’d love to hear him explain this one. He’d probably pull a Covfefe and say: “The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant.”

My apologies to missing Wanda’s nomination last week. I LOVE the lesbian comic, and I’d never intentionally leave her out. I’m happy to report Sykes scored a Comedy Guest Actress nom for her role as Daphne Lido on Black-ish. Congrats, Wanda!

If you missed the other Emmy noms, visit last week’s installment of LDIO.

That’s all, folks! Enjoy your weekend, and be sure to pour one out for Kacy and Cori.
