This poor Scottish Steve Bannon laddy has continually been mistaken on Twitter for a very different Steve Bannon, who is the controversial far-right White House Chief Strategist and Senior Counsel to the President, and former Executive Chair of alt-right news site Breitbart News. At least he's handling it like a master troll.

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:

Ted Cruz, do you even meme bro? Yes, yes apparently he does. And I'll be damned if he didn't address some sass from a potentially canned Deadspin Social Media chump, with steely, ice cold savagery. Big ups Cruz. Not your biggest fan, to put it lightly, but big ups my dude.

I'm not in the business of telling people how to do their jobs, but if you're an elected official and want to instill trust in your constituents, show up with a Captain America shield.

Lan Diep proudly wore a Captain America shield on his arm while taking the oath of office this week. 

Dan Liep says there's "no metaphor."

“Except that it represents America’s ideals and I do hope to aspire to those ideals of fair play, equal justice, and democracy during my term,” Diep said. “But really, I just had this awesome shield and I wanted a chance to show it off.”

So wear that shield. Your constituents will either love you or think you don't take this job seriously at all. One or the other! 

A clip of Melania Trump during inauguration has caught the viral fever and since made its many rounds across the web of Twitter feeds, as it shows Melania smiling then blatantly transitioning into a solid show of fiery-eyed mean mugging.

Leave it to 2017 to take it a step further from the days of 2016 when flocks of folks turned up at voting stalls to send their nominations in for Harambe. Yes, that happened, but apparently that wasn't enough. We need to dive deeper down the shit-coated rabbit's hole, and find a way make sure we give an onion the proper podium to express its multi-layered beliefs from. The kind of mass media movement that can bring hot tears to your eyes, huh?
