Since Donald Trump's inauguration, millions of infuriated voters have been contacting their representation in congress to vent their frustrations with the new administration and to make clear their views on upcoming ballot initiatives and federal appointments.
As a result, Capitol Hill has been inundated with snail mail, emails, calls, faxes, and carrier pigeons (probably not the last one) — and lines of communication are getting clogged.
But one woman was determined to make her voice heard.
Since handing over the reigns of the free world (well... actually, let's not go there) Barack Obama has been enjoying his vacation time. In case you'd somehow forgotten the hat, the former commander-in-chief has been soaking up some sun and getting wild in the British Virgin Islands.
There are some feuds as old as time — but none are as contentious as the heated Thin Mints camp versus Samoas fanatics quarrel.
Which Girl Scout cookie is the best? Which is most beloved? Does caramel or mind go better with chocolate?
If these questions can't be answered, we must know one thing: which team actually has more support?
Some of us are collectors. We were those kids who picked up shiny objects off the sidewalk and tried to bring home garbage (to the chagrin of our parents). Even now, we struggle not to hoard anything cool we happen to stumble upon on our various adventures.
One woman, however, turned her proclivity for collecting into a beautiful project.
After eight sleepless years serving the country in one of the most thankless jobs, Barack Obama is taking a much-needed vacation. However, we wouldn't be content just knowing that he's chilling at the beach — we require photo evidence. Thankfully, TMZ released photos of everyone's favorite former first couple relaxing in the British Virgin Islands.
The photos feature Michelle Obama rocking pigtails and the 44th president of the United States wearing.... wait for it.... a backwards baseball cap. Naturally, the Internet was overjoyed to see this fashion statement make a comeback, and the memes were abundant.
Here are Twitter's best reactions:
As any good dog owner knows, puppers are part of the family. They're as integral to the family unit as anyone else — and, let's face it, they're always the most popular family members.
Some people are just more inclined to seek justice — those of us who just must right wrongs when we see them, whatever the personal cost.
President Donald J. Trump had a busy weekend. After signing an executive order now known as the "immigration ban," or, more specifically, the "Muslim ban," he allegedly hosted a viewing of Pixar's Finding Dory at the White House movie theater (the first official Trump White House screening).
Instagram has introduced us to all kinds of beauty trends we never needed — rainbow eyebrows, glitter armpits, and ouija board makeup, to name a few (although no trend is quite as unnecessary as the furry nails craze of 2016).
Beloved actress, comedian, and beer bong champion (YouTube it) Betty White has blessed us all with her grace, humor, and attitude for decades.
As the legend celebrates her 95th birthday, it’s time we take a look back at some of the wisdom she passed down in interviews, books, and red carpet ramblings.
Here are the most important Betty White quotes to live by:
Despite their bests attempts to do their own grocery shopping, and “stay grounded,” very few celebrities actually come across as being particularly relatable; they have 24/7 childcare, they take lavish vacations, and they spend more on awards show fashion that most of us spend on yearly rent.
There are, however, some notable exceptions — one of which is actress, singer, author, and Twitter phenom Anna Kendrick. Sure, she’s appeared in the Twilight movies and Pitch Perfectand she received her first Oscar nomination at age twenty-four, but she also struggles with “normal person problems,” like wondering why she bothered to put on a bra and leave her house.
While 2016 was a rough year, her light-hearted tweets made the brutal fifty-two weeks go by a lot faster. Behold, the moments when her twitter improved our lives:
After a very long, stressful, and confusing twenty-four hours, Donald J. Trump’s dream of rising to power came true… And the rest of the world cringed in horror.
While plenty of Americans are still taking time to process the news and their feelings, political cartoonists all over the world are wasting no time in getting creative. This kind of political upheaval, while traumatizing and devastating to many, is perfect material for thought-provoking art.
So, behold, downtrodden and depressed American voters, the art that came from our country’s choices:
