Melania Trump Roasted For Her (Senseless) Jacket Choice When Visiting Migrant Children

Melania Trump kicked the hornet's nest and riled up a whole lot of people on Twitter when pictures of her wearing an "I really don't care" jacket, while visiting migrant children, surfaced online. It's chill though, cause Donald Trump tweeted out that this was stylistically motivated by her desire to provide personal commentary on what she thinks of "Fake News organizations." Yes, this is the reality we live in. What's next.

Trump Tries To Prove Patriotism Then Fails To Remember Words To God Bless America

Not sure whether we should laugh or cry on this one. The headline alone does have a pronounced tone of post-apocalyptic hell to it, no?

Guy Live-Tweets Painful Revelation About President Trump's Website Trying To Troll Obama

Twitter User, Christopher Ingraham happened upon a painful revelation that's filled to the brim with hypocrisy. Yes, Ingraham learned that the website of Donald Trump WAS programmed to share a snarky message about Obama not working (to fix the problem) and playing golf all the time, whenever an error turned up while navigating it. 


Thing is, the message was going out while Trump himself is doing that very damn thing, since Christmas. The following Twitter thread hints that Trump's team likely called an audible on that message, after considering the level of hypocrisy at play in the message. Or, who knows. We'll let you be the judge on this one. 

Donald Trump's team fails terribly after trying to insult Obama in his website code.

Inauguration Day Effortlessly Eclipsed By the Sheer Brilliance of George W. Bush Battling a Poncho

Truly the significance of this spontaneous moment is given away in the headline. In such dark and troubling (at least for some folks) times, it lightens the heart to be able to fall back upon the comedic relief of an ex-prez waging war on a seemingly possessed poncho. Thankful for this.

In a little over a week, President Obama is just another nameless schmo, searching the classifieds for a new job and living in his parents’ basement. He’ll probably get an internship or something and start a career in music PR.

Well, maybe Obama should look into a gig at Spotify because it seems like they’re offering a job that he’s especially qualified for: President of Playlists.

The job is live now on Spotify's employement page, so you could apply for it, but you'd have to meet these specific requirements:

  1. Eight years running a highly-regarded nation
  2. Having Kendrick Lamar play your birthday party
  3. Having a Nobel Prize.

Check out the full job description:

Someone forward this to him, he’d be perfect. Does anyone know anyone at Spotify that could put in a good word for him?

President Barack Obama is on his goodbye tour, making farewell addresses over his final two weeks in office. But what's he really saying?

On The Daily Show with Trevor Noah the other night, Keegan Michael Key dropped into translate, introducing the final "Obama Translator" sketch, which they dusted off from their old sketch show Key & Peel

Say goodbye in anger with the final "Obama Translator."

What does it take to get you to vote? Is it civic duty? A profound belief in a candidate? Fear of another candidate?

For almost half the American population, none of these things matter because they don’t vote. In fact, only about 56 percent of Americans voted in 2008. There are no numbers on this, but it’s entirely reasonable to think that maybe more people say “Thanks, Obama” than voted for him.

So what does it take? Money? Would you like money out of a candidate's pocket? Well, that’s not gonna happen, buddy! This is America! We don’t pay for votes here, so take it some place else.

But what about those celebrity videos? Can Stanley Tucci get you to vote? 

via Save the Day

Sorry, Tucc. No. Celebrity videos where they guilt you into voting don’t work because they depend on the old theory of “rational self-interest,” i.e. the idea that people will vote based on heavily-reinforced social norms. People don’t operate based on “rational self interest,” do they? People say that they’re going to vote but, in many cases, don’t actually do it.  

Over on YouTube, The Nerdwriter found something that just might work: shame. That’s right, if shamed into it, people will vote. He offers some different methods for implementing the age-old practice of shame, like a thing on Facebook that says “I Voted” or, the Scarlett Letter of the digital age, “I Didn’t Vote.”
