Somehow, playing Pokémon Go is helping to battle the Westboro Baptist Church.
Trump begs to differ, labeling #BlackLivesMatter “inherently racist.”
IT'S GINGRICH: Why else would Newt and FOX News part ways a hair ahead of Trump's veep announcement?
Madonna is A-okay with David Banda's dad now; she has mended fences with him on her current Malawi trip.
Nick Jonas discusses being a “recovering teen star” with InStyle.
President Obama, in Poland, declares the U.S “horrified” by “a vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement.”
Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Illinois) threatens Obama's life, later pretends he didn't mean it that way. You decide:

Multiple officers slain in sniper shooting at Black Lives Matter protest march in Dallas. How is this America in 2016—POC being executed, cops being shot?
Adam Lambert looking JACKED.
DRAG ME TO HELL: RuPaul's Drag Race meets American Horror Story.
I would've been so bummed if Sarah Silverman had actually died. Who ever heard of this inflammation? Another thing to fear.
The committee allegedly charged with seeking answers in the Benghazi attack has come up empty, failing to do what it was really trying to do all along—provide evidence that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asleep at the wheel and therefore somehow to blame. (Trump mouthpiece tweeted that Hillary quote unquote murdered an ambassador. Good to know.)
While they do use the report to claim Hillary should've realized the situation was dangerous (you mean as in ignoring a memo entitled BIN LADIN DETERMINED TO STRIKE IN U.S.?), there's nothing to see here, folks, except more evidence that this entire inquiry was a witch hunt.
And the “witch” escaped, so move on.
In other news, Hillary's PUSH bio included a reference to Monica Lewinsky! It's being written off as a staffer's “brain freeze.” Don't cut-and-paste from Wikipedia.
Fort Worth pastor Donnie Romero is yet another alleged man of God who is cheering the Orlando mass shooting.
I guess queer-hating trumps Muslim-hating.
Romero was quoted saying of the tragedy:
These 50 Sodomites were all perverts and pedophiles and they are the scum of the earth and the earth is a little bit better place now, and I’ll even take it a little further I heard on the news today that there are still several dozen of these queers in ICU and I will pray that God will finish the job that that man started.
He further said:
The Bible teaches they are predators, and I believe that every Sodomite is a pedophile and is a predator ... Just like if there was a building that had a bunch of rapists or a bunch of evil murderous people, and the building collapsed on them, or something happened where they were all killed, I don't think that's something we should mourn over, because they're evil people.
It's hate speech, plain and simple. I'm not sure I support this as free speech; it seems designed to dehumanize and to encourage violence. It's also just damn un-American.
The anti-LGBT mayor of San Antonio, Texas, Ivy Taylor, tried to suck up some brownie points by offering to pray for the victims in Orlando at a vigil, but her constituents—who are well aware of her stances—shot her down with their voices.
Shockingly, some of the people at the event defended Taylor with the old people-can-disagree argument. Make no mistake: If someone is anti-LGBT rights, he or she is a part of the problem and is not your friend, not before, not during and not after an event that claims the lives of LGBT people.
You can't have disregard for LGBT lives and then pretend to be saddened by LGBT deaths.
Kid ends stand-up routine with a Trump zinger—and the crowd goes wild!
Ben Affleck's ass ended up on the cutting-room floor, but makes appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice extras.
