Donald Trump changed his Twitter banner photo and the internet almost immediately mocked him for it. So he deleted it. Shame he didn’t delete his account. More here. 3. The Trump team has deleted every campaign promise the president made from his website.

Yep, Jake Johnson Would Be Sad To Say Goodbye To 'New Girl,' Too
Huffington Post - 11 months
For six years, Jake Johnson has showed off his comedic acting chops as Nick Miller on Fox’s “New Girl.” Now, with the Season 6 finale airing Tuesday, some fans (and even the stars of the show, according to Johnson) are wondering if the episode will also double as the sitcom’s series finale. Fox has yet to announce whether the show will return for a seventh season. The question on a lot of fans’ minds is whether Nick and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) will end up together. For his part, Johnson just hopes longtime viewers are happy with the way “New Girl” ends, whenever that day comes.  “What I really in my heart believe, I just want the core fan base, the people who love the show, I want them to be happy. And I don’t actually know what that ending is,” he told The Huffington Post, adding, “I just want this TV show to end in a way so that the people who have committed six years of their lives to it, who have cared about it — I don’t want to let them down.” Below, HuffPost catches u...

Zooey Deschanel Does Her Best Trump Impression On 'New Girl'
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The latest episode of “New Girl” airs Tuesday night, and we already know it’s going to be huuuuuuge. The second episode in Season 6 will take on the 2016 presidential election, with Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Cece (Hannah Simone) hitting the campaign trail in support of Hillary Clinton. At one point, Jess even does her best Donald Trump impression, seemingly as a way to sway people not to vote for the reality-TV-star-turned-politician. Judging by the episode’s promo and the photo below, we’d say she nailed it.  In a new clip for the episode shared by Entertainment Weekly on Tuesday, Jess and Cece talk politics with Schmidt (Max Greenfield), who presents a challenge to the women: If they can get five new voters, he’ll vote for Hillary, and if they lose, they have to vote for Winston (Lamorne Morris).   Jess, not one to back down from a challenge, willfully accepts, telling her well-coiffed roommate, “Game on, you Republican minx!”  “New Girl” creator ...
