Ivanka Trump Just Followed Rihanna On Twitter—And Her Fans Are Not Having It

She was recently called a hypocrite for praising US workers as being “the best”, while using foreign workers to produce her goods. She also gave a talk about female empowerment in India, while employing factories that violated human rights of workers.

Then there’s the whole messy business of the Trump name being tied to White Supremacy, something that doesn’t sit well with a lot of Americans. 

Which is probably why a lot of Rihanna’s fans are upset that Ivanka Trump started following the pop star on Twitter.

Rihanna’s been pretty vocal about her distaste of Donald Trump and his policies.

Back in January of 2017 when Trump implemented the unconstitutional travel ban, Rihanna was pretty vocal about how she felt regarding the ruling.

Then there was the singer’s criticism of how Trump handled the crisis in Puerto Rico.

So people are really flustered as to why Ivanka would elect to follow BadGirlRiRi.

People are waiting in anticipation to see how she’s going to react to her new follower.

They’re hoping it’s along the lines of this:

How do you think Rihanna will react? Is this a huge media opportunity the singer won’t be able to pass up?

Or should be drop the ban hammer?

Tomi Lahren Photoshops A Picture Of Colin Kaepernick, And Twitter Isn't Having Any Of It

Tomi Lahren is at it again. On Thursday, the lightweight political commentator, Fox news contributor, and staunch Trump supporter tweeted a doctored photo of Colin Kaepernick. In the image, Kaepernick appears to be kneeling in a WWII landing craft, watching U.S. soldiers storm the beach at Normandy on D-Day. 

Lahren captioned the photo “Citizen of the Year” and quipped, “Food for thought”: 

Lahren may have been hoping to ruffle some feathers on Thanksgiving, but she missed the mark. By depicting Kaepernick kneeling before a military battle to criticize his protests, she overlooked the fact that protesting racial injustice in the U.S. is an act of patriotism. Kaepernick fans took a quick break from arguing with family over dry turkey and room temperature side dishes to have a little fun with Lahren’s ignorance. 

Many Twitter users called out Lahren’s hypocrisy: 

Some tried to explain how military families’ sacrifices gave us free speech:

Others defended Kaepernick’s right to protest… again:

But several people got to the heart of it all with their own “food for though” photos:

And someone illustrated what we were all thinking:

Sit ALL the way down, Ms. Lahren.

Male Praying Mantis Continues Having Sex After Getting Decapitated–And We're Enthralled

The Praying mantis is a super freaky looking bug with some very interesting sexual predilections. For instance, cannibalism.

Some female Mantis species bite the head off the male Mantis after he deposits his sperm in her. After is the important part to remember while watching this video from Youtube channel Deep Impact. At about the three minute 30 second mark, you will witness a male mantis getting its head bite off—and still being DTF afterwards.

As you can see, he has no head. Yet he persists.

According to the narrtor, the nerves in the Mantis’ abdomen are controlling its body at this point. He doesn’t really need a head to get the job done, so to speak. He’s just following his heart!

Look, this is pretty disturbing, but don’t let it poison you against the Praying Mantis forever. They’re actually pretty cool bugs, with lots of gorgeous varieties:

Just don’t take one home from the bar.

Megyn Kelly Premiered On 'Today' This Morning And People Weren't Having It

This morning, Megyn Kelly—formerly of Fox, but of course, after her breakout 2016, you probably know that—began her debut hosting an hour of the Today show. She talked to the stars of Will and Grace, as well as fellow Today anchor Kathie Lee Gifford, but all their charm combined apparently wasn’t enough to save her from rough initial reviews. And the big question everyone seems to have is: Why are we pretending that the conservative anchor who famously once insisted that Santa Claus was white isn’t political?

Consider how harsh this review of her initial performance was: “The debut was like watching a network try to assemble its own Bride of Frankenstein, using parts of Ellen DeGeneres, Kelly Ripa and whatever else it can find. The resultant lovely creature, dressed in a mauve, pussy-bow blouse and skintight pants, moved stiffly and waved her arms around in broad gestures in a bizarre attempt to generate excitement from an audience that was already standing and cheering as duly instructed. She interviewed people nervously and so awkwardly that they were cowed into giving monosyllabic answers. She also never missed an opportunity to talk about herself.”

That’s not from a blog. That’s from The Washington Post. Time, CNN, and even USA Today had similar reservations.

The big issue is that it might actually be impossible to be apolitical these days. At one point, Kelly asked an audience member, “Is it true you became a lawyer and gay because of Will & Grace?” (As the Post points out, the cast of the show also could not talk about a plot point in the revival involving the Trump administration.) 

She also interviewed a white nun working to prevent gun violence on the south side of Chicago, which she called “like a war zone,” according to USA Today‘s review. “Chicago’s gun violence is another issue that’s been politicized, particularly by President Trump, but her focus is on the feel-good aspect of the nun’s ‘Peace Garden,’ and her efforts to bring the mothers of violence victims and perpetrators together. While that serves its own purpose, it doesn’t make the issue entirely apolitical.”

In a revealing interview with Elle, in advance of the episode, Megyn Kelly “stands up and turns toward the door” when the journalist asks her about the president’s treatment of ESPN journalist Jemele Hill. It’s not hard to see how Kelly’s avoidance of “politics” is its own political stance.

Of course, it’s only the premiere episode. Kelly will probably become more natural in her role as the show goes on. But many people feel that if you exist in the world, your existence itself is political. A lot to think about, right?

This College Student Went Viral For Having A Last Name That's Hard To Wedding Hashtag

Fear of not being able to have an adorable wedding hashtag is real, and the sum of those fears is here. I present: college student Steven Kleinschmidt. 

Kleinschmidt joins me and many other cursed souls in having a last name that doesn’t exactly conjure romance.

But other Twitter users started thinking up some actually ingenious hashtags. 

Including lots of “smitten” puns, which Kleinschmidt told BuzzFeed were his favorite. “Everything else was clever but nothing you’d ever really use for a wedding hashtag,” he said. 

What, Steven, you don’t think these would make good wedding hashtags?

Man Posts Bikini Rule On Twitter And Women Weren't Having It

A man on Twitter posted a statement that encouraged women to respond in an empowering way. 

The women responding gave this man a piece of their minds, and their bodies in bikinis. 

Other women shared their actual weight and a photo of them in a bikini.

One twitter user shared her full expression on the matter.

It’s safe to say that all of these women confidently clapped back!

Sean Spicer Just Tried To Blame Hillary Clinton For A Trump Problem, And Nobody's Having It

Sean Spicer Just Tried To Blame Hillary Clinton For A Trump Problem, And Nobody’s Having It

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is one of the special treasures to come out of President Donald’s Presidency. It’s not his lies or his hysterical method of delivering half-truths. It’s Spicer’s conviction, his belief that what he’s reporting is factual and everyone is wrong if you think he’s wrong.

Source

Spicey’s most recent farce was, surprisingly,not him hiding in the bushes to avoid questions, but rather misspeaking about former acting Attorney General Sally Yates. When asked about Yates’ political ties and preferences during President Donald’s presidency and why she was fired, he said:

[She is] someone who is not exactly a supporter of the president’s agenda. Who, a couple days after this first conversation took place, refused to uphold a lawful order of the president. Who is not exactly someone that was excited about President Trump taking office or his agenda… We did what we were supposed to do. The president made, ultimately, the right decision… [She was] appointed by the Obama administration and a strong supporter of Clinton.

“[She was] appointed by the Obama administration and a strong supporter of Clinton.”

This definitely got Twitter talking.

While President Obama did appoint Yates to Deputy Attorney General in 2015, before she was a U.S. Attorney General for Georgia, appointed by George W. Bush. Even before that, she had a career with the Justice Department stretching back years.

Of course, Spicer didn’t stop there in his claims about Yates’ loyalties.

And if that wasn’t enough, Spicer repeated previous statements that Sally Yates simply gave the White House a “heads up” in regards to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s ties to Russia.

What a treasure.

19 People Explain Why They Prefer Having A Friend With Benefits Over A Relationship

There are varying degrees to any relationship we all hold nowadays. Sometimes, we split the type of relationship we keep with certain folks and get the full experience of interacting with one pleasant person by keeping them in rotation. I do this with different groups of friends, and do everything in my power to make sure that none of them ever meet to keep everything in balance.

Recent years has seen a movement that has existed for ages be named and become more popular. FWBs, or friends with benefits, are exactly what they sound like. They’re people that are cool to hang with and simultaneously get physically intimate with, sans post copulating issues.

Some people are too busy to keep a relationship healthy, or are no longer interested in having one at all after one too many negative experiences, but still have certain primal needs that still need to be addressed. There are plenty of reasons to go this route, but here are 19 of them from people that already chose to stick with the FWB lifestyle, at least for the time being.
