No One On Twitter Feels Bad For the Bigoted Bathroom Bill Governor Who Can't Find a Job

Pat McCrory, the former North Carolina governor behind the state's infamous bathroom bill, is out of the job and can't find work. It's as if no one wants to hire a bigot because that's what he says people are saying. 

Apparently, poor old Pat is having a hard time find a job because universities are nervous about student protests. It's as if students don't want to pay the salary of a bigot. He'll have to look somewhere else for sympathy because after leading his state on a transphobic witch hunt for months, he refused to give up his seat after he lost his re-election bid. 

To add insult to injury, everyone's making fun of him on Twitter:

People Are Ripping Donald Trump a New One After He Threatened 'Failing Career' Snoop Dogg With 'Jail Time'

During the controversial video for Snoop Dogg's "Lavendar" he can be seen quite literally taking aim with a pistol at a mock-up of Donald Trump. Obviously, these being the times we live in, such blasphemy couldn't go unaddressed; and by no one other than the president himself. Donald Trump lashed out in expectedly incendiary fashion, and proceeded to kick the ever hungry appetites of Twitter Trolls near and far. Come on DJ Trump, leave Snoop Dogg out of this.

In case you haven't noticed, having a reality-TV gameshow host as president is a total nightmare in which everyday brings a brand-new, equally terrifying nightmare. 

The past two weeks have been exceptionally fun because the president has been on a real tear. First, he tweeted out some conspiracy theories about Barack Obama because he misses asking the former president for his birth certificate. Then, the GOP released Trumpcare and everyone hates it because it's awful. 

But rather than listen to me rattle on and on about it, why not take 10 minutes and watch Seth Meyers destroy both these things, as he is wont to do. It's a nice warm blanket to get you through the cold nightmare of reality.

I really hope no one ever teaches politicians how to delete tweets because then I might be out of the job.

International Trade Secretary Liam Fox appeared on Sky News on Sunday to discuss a controversial tweet he made about Europe.

Of course, he denies making the tweet despite the fact that Sky News posted it on a large screen right behind him and that the tweet still lives online. See:

The tweet has been live since March 4 of last year and is also home to this list of 20th century embarrassments the British government is responsible for.

But I guess it's just easier to make a bold-faced lie than to just own up to your actual opinion.

Paul Ryan Used a PowerPoint to Explain Trumpcare and, Surprise, People Are Meme-ing the Hell Out Of it

Why do politicians keep doing this?

Every few weeks another politician stands in front of a screen to make their case, and it just gets destroyed on the internet. As if Trumpcare didn't have enough bad press, now it's getting another meme-ing. One healthcare plan can only take so much meme-ing! 

He's asking for it. 

Trumpcare might be on meme life support, but it definitely can't afford the deductible.

Trumpcare isn't really going that well for the GOP. In addition to comparing health care and buying a cellphone, that reality-TV gameshow host asking everyone not to call it "Trumpcare." If that guy doesn't like it, I don't know what to say. 

Stephen Colbert broke it all down last night on The Late Show, and it all does kind of sound very Game of Thrones-y.
