Happy St. Patrick's Day: Watch Paul Ryan Upset the Irish on Twitter By Raising a Sad Looking Guinness

Cute. I remember my first beer. 

Yesterday, at an event where that reality-TV gameshow host who became president last year with the Irish Prime Minister, House speaker Paul Ryan raised a pathetic glass of Guinness and nearly set off an international incident. Watch as Paul Ryan attempts to fit in with normal folk as if he wasn't actively trying to kill normal people by gutting medicaid. 

This is not going over well on the internet, as people are mortified at Paul Ryan's beer and the idea of him drinking it. Sure this is nit picky, but Paul Ryan suck, so whatever. Enjoy people making fun of this turd.

Donald Trump lies all the time. He was practically elected to lie all the time. Sean Spicer is in danger of breaking a finger from air quoting the president's words all the time. Someone help this man and his poor finger.

Thankfully, detective Seth Meyers, private eye, took the time to pour over the news, write a few jokes, and get to the bottom of this mess that will soon be our lives. Watch him take on his bullshit healthcare bill, jobs report, and wiretapping claims, finally making Trump funny again... as oppose to just terrifying.

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.
