Uber is steadily paddling through a rocky PR shitstorm. Over the weekend, following news of the Muslim Travel Ban issued by the Trump administration, thousands of angry citizens turned up at JFK airport in NY to stage an open protest. The NY Taxi Workers Alliance additionally called for an hour-long halt in services to further protest the ban. 

And that's right about where Uber issued a tweet saying they'd halt surge prices, and continue providing rides to and fro the airport. Some folks took this as an insensitive ploy to swoop in and capitalize on profits otherwise being willingly forfeited by taxi workers, eager to put on a display of outrage and unrest over the Muslim Travel Ban. Hundreds, if not thousands of people went on to delete the Uber app from their phones, and these are some of the more colorful reasons for why:

Over the weekend, probably as he was Googling his own name and looking for something, anything complimentary about him, Sean Spicer found a video that he thought “Nailed it!” It’s just a shame that that video came from The Onion, the world leader in joke news.

Spicer found a tweet by The Onion, who were promoting their video "5 Things to Know About Sean Spicer" touting Spicer’s ability to communicate the Trump administration’s “misinformation.” He quickly retweeted and added the comment “You nailed it. Period!”

One can only imagine him lying in his lazy boy recliner, mouth open, and Doritos dust covering his chest as came across the tweet that claimed he was lying to the American People. He might’ve brushed that Doritos dust off his chest before RT’ing in agreement. Or maybe he didn’t change positions.

However, one thing’s for sure, if you were wondering about Trump administration’s ability to parse out real news from “fake news,” you have your answer: The White House press secretary aka one of the most important media guys in America thought The Onion was real.

Weather girl totally loses it on-air when confronted about her Adam Driver crush.

In light of a big move like this, you can count on the reactions from the rabid, outspoken leatherheads of this fine world to be equal parts pleasant, distasteful, and most definitely ridiculous. I've gotta place my bets here on 'Sin City Raiders' taking a serious run at that as their preferred, new official namesake. I mean, come on that shit's a royal flush.

Just when I thought I'd seen it all with dating apps, this shit comes to fruition: a dating service intended for likeminded, single Trump supporters ready to swipe right on making dating great again. At least we've a venue that can act as a beacon for the lost, single souls out there bonded through their shared respect, potential adoration for the tangerine-skinned, golden-haired Prez Elect---DJ Trump. "What are your thoughts on the Wall?" Solid conversation starter material right there.

Can you imagine a news outlet abandoning shadow tactics and deceptive headlining/storytelling for some strange sort of honest high ground, hellbent on proliferating the truth-tellin? Nah, that sounds like madness...

At least we have James Corden (a mildly entertaining late night host with occasional flashes of comedic brilliance) around to show us what that could look like. Kind of.
