Women Screw Up Again!

In the office of darkness and embarrassment, Don asks Dr. Dr. Sloan why she dates "men like this." She says she doesn't know that they're "men like this" until they turn into "men like this." Don says he doesn't believe that the ex could be this much of a "shithead" and Dr. Dr. Sloan wouldn't have figured it out in the seven weeks that were dating. Don says Dr. Dr. Sloan must not have a very high opinion of herself and he doesn't know why not. Also, he'd just like to point out that if a woman posted a man's sexy photos on the internet, her friends would all be saying "you go, girl!" Yes. Double standards are so rough on men. I don't know how they deal with it all. "You're impressive," Don says. But then they don't make out, so, whatever.

MacKenzie wants to make sure Will called his father. He says he did. She says he did the right thing and he can live with that forever. And Will's dad will be so happy when he gets the message. "I know," Will says.

Don calls Phillip again, then explains that he joked with Phillip the other day when he asked if Simon would have any problems getting confirmed for solicitor general, like a speakers' fee at the Righteous Daughters of Jihadi Excellence or something. And apparently Phillip took him seriously and tipped off World Net Daily, who posted it without checking if it was true. Dr. Dr. Sloan suggests that Don try contacting World Net Daily's editorial staff. Don looks him up and realizes that he's about to call a guy named "Munch." He dials. A man answers. "Mr. Munch?" he begins. Dr. Dr. Sloan busts out laughing. That was a nice moment. See? I can admit when this show does things right.

Will plays the 911 tape. There's Zimmerman telling the operator that Trayvon "looks like he's up to no good" and then "he looks black." OOPS.

Don tells Munch that he made the crack about the Righteous Daughters of Jihadi Excellence and it was just a joke. Munch says they have it "from multiple sources." "You gotta take it down and run a retraction," Don says. Uh, no, they don't. I mean, they should, but Don must know by now that very few websites or even broadcast and print outlets will do this. For example, just wait to see how News Night handles its inaccurate portrayal of George Zimmerman. Munch refuses, insisting that Don wasn't his only source. "It turns out your joke was right on the money," Munch says.

At this point, Don explodes and screams at Munch that he knows that's not true since he made up the Righteous Daughters of Jihadi Excellence in the first place. Also: "WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?!!?" and he calls Munch a "fatass," because, you know, all internet people are fat. Dr. Dr. Sloan hangs the phone up. She says Don can just have Neal use the recording of the call to clear Weingarden's name and show that World Net Daily is bad at journalism, problem solved. Not if Don was using Will's recorder, it's not! "Thanks, pal," Dr. Dr. Sloan says.
