Morning Coffee (6/21/16)

Well. Corey Lewandowski is out. And FEC filings show that Trump has basically no money. And I feel like this campaign has been crazy enough that we actually don't have a firm grasp on what this all might mean, but... it can't be good, right?

Meanwhile: The Mystifying Triumph of Hope Hicks, Donald Trump’s Right-Hand Woman (She is FASCINATING.)

MEANWHILE: Last year, no candidate got more negative media coverage than Hillary Clinton

I'm glad someone thought to hire Rick Perlstein to cover this election. (Also here.)

I am puzzled that I'd never heard of LaCroix before this Vox piece - I pay attention to seltzer and food trends AND TV writers! - and/but now I want to try it because I'm very suggestible. Looks like it's not in any of the normal grocery stores around here, but maybe Target or Whole Foods.

What Did Internet Troll Chuck Johnson Know About Peter Thiel’s Secret War on Gawker?

India and Nepal in Not-Very-Enlightened Spat Over Buddha’s Childhood Home

This was going around but in case you hadn't seen it, it really is a crazy story: The Married Woman Who Kept Her Lover in the Attic

PERFECT: "Now, if Elizabeth Warren and Jill Stein and Michelle Obama make a new Ghostbusters in a hypothetical four or eight years from now, I could get behind that idea. That vague notion that wouldn’t hold up under any scrutiny for a variety of reasons is CLEARLY a better option than this new Ghostbusters movie made by competent people that’s seemingly ready to be shown any minute now."
