Unlike elitist President Barack Obama -- who “refuses to use the term even of ‘what’s going on?’” -- Donald Trump is not afraid to admit that when it comes to a broad range of geopolitical issues, from immigration to ISIS, he does NOT know what is going on. But he’d really like someone to help him figure it out!
Watch the above supercut of Trump's brash obliviousness, and if you feel equipped to explain “what is going on,” please get in touch with The Donald immediately. He seems very scared and...

We recently published a video titled, 48 Things Women Hear In A Lifetime (That Men Just Don't), in order to show how subtly sexist messaging begins at a very young age and then never, ever ends.
Little girls are told not to be bossy; teens and young women are told that no matter their sexual decisions, they're damned if they do, damned if they don't; moms face frustrating expectations that just aren't put upon dads. And at every age, women are reminded that our appearance is of utmost importance.
Many commenters responded, "men are told things, too!" To which we'd say: Of course! Sexism doesn't exist in a vacuum. Our society has a dangerously narrow view of masculinity, which limits what a man is allowed to "be."
But if you consider the messages men hear -- "be a man!" "boys don't cry!" "don't be such a pussy!" -- you'll find that almost all of them translate to "don't be a woman." Because women are the seen as weaker sex; to be "feminine" is to be less than. So when we tell men they're not "real men" unless they're tough, financially successful (specifically more successful than their female partners), strong, authoritative... yes, we're hurting men who don't fit those parameters. But we're also hurting women.
The same attitude informs a culture where young men are taught to feel a sense of ownership over women's bodies and decisions. Phrases like "tap that" and "hit it and quit it" enter our vernacular. It becomes "manly" to treat women as objects, it becomes "funny" to call women sluts.
If little boys are taught to see traditionally "feminine" qualities as "bad," the cycle of sexism never ends. As Gloria Steinem recently wrote, "I'm glad we've begun to raise our daughters more like our sons -- but it will never work until we raise our sons more like our daughters."
Watch the video above to hear what men are taught throughout their lifetimes that is harmful to everyone.

"Cocaine is a hell of a drug," Rick James once said on an episode of "Chappelle’s Show." It was hilarious, and people laughed. But a few months later, James was dead at the age of 56 -- a mixture of drugs, including cocaine, found in his body.
Cocaine abuse remains an ongoing problem in U.S. culture. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the number of deaths by cocaine overdose has increased over 40 percent in a the past decade.
But the TV and movie industry has always had more of a complicated relationship with cocaine. At one moment, the drug is glorified on the big screen; the next, it is the representation of depravity. To explore Hollywood’s double-edged depiction of the drug, The Huffington Post asked audio and video auteur Swede Mason to craft the above video tapestry. We combed through over 100 hours of movie footage and then handed our findings over to Mason, who edited together the visuals and incorporated the source material in creating the audio track.

Don't be a slut, but definitely don't be too prude. Don't be so emotional, but don't be a cold-hearted bitch. Prioritize your family over your career, but are you sure you want to be a stay-at-home mom?
Throughout our lives, women hear insidious, often-conflicting messages about what it means to be a woman, about how we should act, talk and look.
In the video above, watch as girls and women deliver messages you'd never say to a boy or a man, one after another. Each individual remark may seem inconsequential, but listening to them in totality shows just how never-ending (and exhausting) subtle sexism really is.
Commentary on women's bodies, minds and decisions -- from "Stop being an attention whore!" to "Are you planning on working after the baby is born? -- knows no bounds.
