Peter will join Trump's staff as White House communications director, at least for one episode, after the president realizes he's an expert seller of fake news, according to Entertainment Weekly. The Griffins will move to Washington, D.C. for the episode. “Although this episode was written almost a year ago, fortunately Trump has done nothing since then to embarrass himself or our nation,” Family Guy producers said in a statement. The Fox animated comedy hasn't told that many Trump jokes, though it did have Peter impersonate Trump for its 2016 Emmy campaign.

Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown denounces internet bullying in MTV Movie & TV Awards speech
Brown couldn't make Saturday's ceremony because of a knee injury, so she used her pre-recorded speech to address her decision to quit Twitter after becoming a homophobic meme. "Since I know there are many young people watching this—and even for the adults—they could probably use the reminder that I was taught. If you don’t have anything nice to say, just don’t say it," she said. There should be no space in this world for bullying, and I’m not going to tolerate it, and neither should any of you. If you need a reminder of how worthy you are and to rise above the hate, message me on Instagram.”
