8. Apparently, only Obama takes vacations.
Food for thought. Do we do this

7. Breaking Bad goes out on top at the Emmys.
It may not even be airing anymore,

1. Duterte defends wife-beating police chief.
And here we thought Ramon Bautista was being sanctioned to “protect Davao women’s dignity.” Apparently, this only applies to comedians, and not wife-beating cops.
