Sarah Huckabee Sanders Wore Green On TV—It Wasn’t A Smart Idea

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the newly minted White House Press Secretary, is learning a valuable lesson on the job: if you wear solid green on television, viewers may be tempted to use it as a green screen so they can superimpose hilarious images onto you.

Social media is incredibly grateful.

Katheryn has a request.

This guy used Sanders’s dress in a practical way.

One user had a suggestion for what McLaren should include in his next clip.

Hopefully Sanders wears another green ensemble soon so we can get a sequel to this epic clip. Because, well…

Yes it is, Ryebread, yes it is.

Kellyanne Conway Makes Up 'Bowling Green Massacre' And Twitter Can't Stop Roasting Her

Kellyanne Conway has become somewhat of a running joke/horrifying reality check after she went live on air and tried to convince America that “alternative facts” actually exist.

Yes, that’s right, the woman went on TV and as a representative of our current Presidential organization argued that the very fabric of reality as we know it is absolutely subjective. Now I just want to state on the record that if “alternative facts” actually do catch on, I want to explain to my bank that I wasn’t overdrawn, because in my alternative fact reality I’m a millionaire.

Let’s just cut to the chase: alternative facts are lies. If someone tells you that the brownies in front of you are actually grilled chicken breast, that’s not an alternative fact, that’s a lie. If you run over someone in the middle of the road and you say you didn’t, but you totally did, that’s a lie.

Conway dished out her latest lie on MSNBC, where she flat-out fabricated a story about an attack on US soil to support Trump’s refugee ban.

Trump supporters then immediately started saying that Trump’s refugee ban was being unfairly criticized, as Obama did the same thing in 2011 as per Conway’s lie. However, Obama’s refugee slowdown is vastly different than Trump’s ban, and the two men who Conway wrongly said killed people on US soil are now serving life sentences in a federal prison after they were caught trying to send money and weapons to Al-Qaeda.

Twitter obviously began roasting Conway for blatantly lying to Chris Matthews’ face about the whole Bowling Green ‘Massacre’.

Not sure how they’ll spin this one.

An Olympic Swimming Pool Turned Green And No One Knows Why

You’ve probably heard about how Rio’s sea water is so polluted that only three teaspoons is enough to make an athlete seriously ill. Well, it’s spreading to the pools too. Athletes and tourists have been flocking to social media to ask why this pool seems to have turned green overnight…

And apparently it’s not just this pool…

For reference, here’s a picture of the pool a few days ago.

And here’s the underwater camera from yesterday and again from today.

The reason for the swamp-like color? No one seems to know. No one that should know why, anyway. BBC commentator Bob Ballard asked an organizer and got a less than reassuring “I don’t know.” 

Regardless of the fact, the women’s 10m synchronized diving finals still took place in the pool. With viewers and athletes taking to Twitter to joke about the situation.

And everyone who thinks they know their science has been offering explanations. Aimee Lewis of the BBC explains:

“An American photographer in the press room suggests that perhaps organisers did not “shock” the water overnight.”

“‘You know, it’s like back home, if you don’t shock the pool water it turns green. It doesn’t look nice, but it isn’t dangerous,’ he says.”

“If chlorine levels drop, even for one day, it can turn green because of an algae outbreak. Having never owned a pool let alone needed to clean one, I just nod sagely.”

While this Twitter user blames someone forgetting to put the chlorine in:

Whatever the reason, it doesn’t look very inviting.
