The Art of the Trump Impersonation
It’s unclear if Funny Or Die’s made-for-Internet spoof film of Donald Trump necessarily counts as “television,” but these days television means basically anything you want it to, so why not? The 50-minute masterpiece stars Johnny Depp as the Donald himself, some gloriously retro ’80s VHS cinematography, and a cavalcade of guests, starting with Patton Oswalt as Merv Griffin. SNL ought to give Depp a call when they’re tired of trotting out Darrell Hammond for the umpteenth time.

11-year-old Marley Dias’ catchy slogan for her book drive — that she’s tired about books starring white dudes in the making and their canine companions — has taken the blogosphere by storm, but Larry Wilmore took the extra step of inviting her to come on his show (and presenting her with the 100 emoji on a plaque). She is, unsurprisingly, eloquent and gracious about representation in publishing. She’s also a big fan of Jacqueline Woodson’s Brown Girl Dreaming.
