Happy Friday! We've made it to the end of the week, and what a crazy, news-filled week it's been. And the headlines just keep coming in, as you'll see in today's roundup. So, without further ado, read on for a recap of everything that had Bustle's editors talking today, Jan. 26:
Hillary Clinton + Burns Strider
A new report claims that Burns Strider, one of Hillary Clinton's senior advisors during her 2008 run, sexually harassed a female staffer — and Clinton decided to keep him on staff despite her campaign manager advising her against the idea. Naturally, many people are troubled by the report, which comes at a time when sexual harassment and assault are in the spotlight more than ever.

Trump + Robert Mueller

Trump denied the report, calling it "fake news," but several sources told the Times of the alleged occurrence.

Well, here's some good(ish) news — Maisie Williams has just confirmed that the new GoT season will premiere in April of that year. Mark your calendars!

Tide Pods + That Viral Challenge

Now, people have created edible Tide Pod-inspired recipes, in the hopes of encouraging some others from eating the actual, unsafe items. Hey, whatever works.
