Trump Jr. is tired, y’all. And we would be, too, especially in the midst of latest events surrounding the Russia email scandal. But PEOPLE’s latest exposé really puts things into perspective. The Trump family is reportedly under a lot of pressure to appease the head honcho, and if what we read is true, it’s wearing on everyone. “The loyalty within this family is insane,” a “family friend” tells PEOPLE. Another source adds, “You can’t bite the hand that feeds you, but he [Don Jr.] can’t wait for these four years to be over.” Read the story in full here.

For some reason, y’all’s favorite show creators (David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, Game of Thrones) thought it’d be a fabulous idea to create a show about an alternate reality where slavery still exists. The show is called CONFEDERATE (TF?) and it’s slated to air on HBO.

“As the brilliant Game of Thrones winds down to its final season, we are thrilled to be able to continue our relationship with Dan and David, knowing that any subject they take on will result in a unique and ambitious series,” Casey Bloys, president of HBO Programming, said in a statement. “Their intelligent, wry and visually stunning approach to storytelling has a way of engaging an audience and taking them on an unforgettable journey. CONFEDERATE promises to be no exception, and we are honored to be adding the talented team of Nichelle and Malcolm Spellman to the mix.”

Big Facts

January’s Women’s March, despite intending to be a call-to-action for all women, left many (read: Black women) feeling excluded. Which is why Black Women United gathered over 1,500 people together on Saturday for a Black women’s rights march in Sacramento, Calif. It’s called the “Ain’t I Woman” march, and it was created “as a way to include Black women more in today’s women’s rights movement,” reports HuffPost. “More so, though, we just wanted to continue the conversation but with a focus on Black women and Black women’s issues,” March organizer Imani Mitchell said. “I love being a Black woman and I love Black women and I felt that an event like this was needed and in many ways therapeutic for some Black women when everyday it feels as though resisting is a struggle.” And yes, the name was absolutely inspired by Sojourner Truth’s “Ain’t I A Woman” speech from 1851. We’re excited to see what comes from the march in the future. In the meantime, learn more about BWU here.
