New York Post staffers likely never anticipated that they were broadcasting details of the future president's sex life when they published a 1990 headline that read "'BEST SEX I'VE EVER HAD,'" alongside a grinning Donald Trump.
The tabloid's Wednesday front page did a cheeky callback to the original version, swapping it out for a timelier headline: "WORST REX HE EVER HAD," it read, trumpeting the news of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's ouster.

The original headline referenced a quote from Trump's second wife, Marla Maples, while the new one referred to Trump's firing of Tillerson via Twitter on Tuesday. It seems the New York Post just couldn't resist taking a jab at the drama, presenting an homage to their own Trump coverage to slam the "reality-show presidency." Summer Meza
A confidential intelligence briefing in the House on Friday left Democrats furious about FBI Director James Comey's role heading the agency, The Hill reports. "I was nonjudgmental until the last 15 minutes. I no longer have that confidence in him," Rep. Tim Walz (D-Minn.) said. "Some of the things that were revealed in this classified briefing — my confidence has been shook."
The intelligence discussed in the briefing specifically concerned Russian interference in the presidential election last year. "I'm extremely concerned — extremely," said Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.). "I'll just — I'm very angry," agreed Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.). Rep. Charlie Crist (D-Fla.) also fumed to The Hill: "I want to [have faith in Comey]. I have concerns. Stay tuned."
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was more measured, saying, "Let's find out how [Comey and the FBI] thought it was a good idea to make the judgments they did, and understanding — weighing full well — that the Russians were actively engaged in disrupting our election." Republicans did not have the same reaction: "The FBI director is a good man who was placed in a very difficult position," defended Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.).
The House meeting comes on the heels of the Justice Department inspector general office's announcement Thursday that it is opening an investigation into Comey's decision to inform Congress that the FBI was looking at newly found emails related to Clinton's private server. The emails quickly proved irrelevant, but Clinton has said the move, which renewed scrutiny of her email practices days before the election, was a key factor in her narrow loss to President-elect Donald Trump.

Drake has been crushing on Rihanna since the two were first spotted together in a bowling alley seven years ago. Now, according to an anonymous source that spoke with People, Drizzy and RiRi are apparently "secretly dating" — and have been for months.
Of course, the couple is famously on-again off-again, so who can really keep track? We tried, using seven years' worth of Drake's lovesick lyrics. Jeva Lange
Who coulda predicted Lucky Strike would have you stuck with me?
What happened between us that night, it always seems to trouble me
"Made Men" (2011)
One of my baddest women ever, I call her Rihanna
But that's 'cause her name is Rihanna
"Remember, back in June Drizzy confessed that Rihanna left him high and dry after a brief fling. Well, since then they've collaborated on her No. 1 single 'What's My Name?,' and apparently everything's on the up and up." [Entertainment Weekly]
"No Lie" (2012)
Chances are it's what's her name
Chances are, if she was acting up
Then I f----d her once and never f----d again
She could have a Grammy, I still treat her ass like a nominee
"The 'No Lie' verse refers to a female Grammy winner, with Rihanna already having five of the awards to her name, and also seems to refer to Rihanna and Drake's 2011 collaboration 'What's My Name?'" [Capital FM]
"5 AM in Toronto" (2013)
I mean, where you think she at when she ain't with ya?
Wildin', doin' shit that's way out of your budget
"Lines like 'Where you think she at when she ain't with ya?' fuel speculation that the Toronto MC is taking shots at the once-rumored love triangle between him, Chris Brown, and Rihanna." [MTV]
"Views From the 6" (2014)
You must remember wakin' up in Paris with the blunt
You must remember f---in' me like anytime you want
What made us wanna act like we were married for two weeks?
Now we back in California, we don't even speak
"My Side" (2015)
Why you never come to where I'm staying?
Always hiding out in your New York condo
Why you never come to where I'm staying?
If anybody knows, girl, you know I know
"Not only does that Bad Gal live in New York (and probably one of the few people able to afford a condo in NYC), but she and Drake attempted a relationship multiple times and couldn't make it work." [Celebuzz]
You cannot be here right next to me
Don't you see Riri right next to me?
"Following the release of 'Hype,' the Twitterverse exploded with speculation that Drake is confirming his rumored romance with Rihanna." [ET Online]
