Doug Jones Beat Roy Moore In The Alabama Senate Election And Twitter Can't Believe It

After a campaign in which Republican candidate Roy Moore was accused of pursuing relationships with teenage girls during his 80s, Democrat Doug Jones has won the Alabama Senate Election with a narrow margin. Jones will be the first Democratic senator from Alabama in more than two decades. 

Roy Moore was expected to win the election, which was called when Jeff Sessions gave up his seat to be President Donald Trump’s Attorney General. 

President Donald Trump had endorsed Moore in a series of tweets, while the accusations led many Republican senators to disown their candidate. The Republican majority in the Senate is now down to just two votes.

In an election that was decided by a few thousand votes, and an incredibly high turnout for groups such as African Americans, you can probably guess how social media reacted. 

Jeff Flake took to Twitter to slam Moore. 

As did Hillary Clinton. 

And here’s how the rest of social media reacted…

These Rose-Shaped Donuts Beat A Traditional Bouquet Any Day Of The Week

Getting someone a dozen flowers is a thoughtful and kind gesture.

So is getting them a dozen donuts. Slightly less romantic, but definitely yummier.

But what if you could somehow combine the two? No, I’m not talking about genetically modifying plants to look like miniature donuts.

I’m talking about these rose-shaped donuts offered by Doughnut Plant.

The petal-riffic donuts come in three different flavors: strawberry, Italian blood orange, and rose. 

The rose donuts are being offered “indefinitely” at all Doughnut Plant locations.

The cost for one of these bad boys? $ 5 each.

Can You Beat Snoop Dogg In This Marijuana Quiz?

Everyone knows that the s to the n to the double-o-p is pretty much the authority when it comes down to anything cannabis-based and it’s because the guy’s a self-proclaimed, loud and proud pot-ophile. I’m pretty sure that if he was stopped with an ounce of weed on him, the cop would just take a selfie and post to Facebook about how much of an honor it was to meet Snoop.

So to try and go toe-to-toe with Snoop in rolling a blunt or smoking a certain amount of weed would be insane.

But how about a weed quiz? It seems like a foregone conclusion you wouldn’t know as much about weed as the d-o-double-g himself, so trying to beat him in this weed quiz may seem like a pointless endeavor. Unless you manage to beat him, then you’ll definitely earn his respect and approval. And if you’re anything like me then that will mean the world to you.
