Here’s a trash piece of content from the New York Times:

The video, by animator Bill Plympton, is actually from late June, but the Times chose to recirculate it on Monday—presumably to coincide with the summit between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. Its big joke: that Trump and Putin are gay and they are gay together and they make out and are gay. Hilarious stuff! There’s even an extended sequence with their tongues intertwined. Ew, gross...

It appears that this line of supposed humor about Trump and Putin is the homophobic joke that will never die, and now it has the imprimatur of the New York Times. Cool.
