Chrissy Teigen Just Found Out It's Now 'Illegal' For Donald Trump To Block Twitter Users

Chrissy Teigen Just Found Out It's Now 'Illegal' For Donald Trump To Block Twitter Users

A huge reason why the constitution exists along with our rights in that constitution is to prevent the government from having too much power over the people.

Our ability to criticize the government and political figures however and whenever we want, and making sure they hear those criticisms and complaints is what makes America what it is.

An ever-growing popular form of communication is social media, a platform that Donald Trump used to his great advantage, basically trolling people online to get into the White House.

The thing about the internet is that you’re basically connected to the rest of the world, so if you have active profiles in your name, that means people can find you on those mediums and say pretty much anything you want to them. If you don’t like what they have to say though, you can block them and create a safe space for yourself.

But because he’s the President and all, and a public figure in a civil service position, the Supreme Court has ruled that he can’t block people from tweeting at him online without violating the First Amendment. 

Federal District Court Judge Naomi Reice ruled that because Trump’s @realdonaldtrump account has been given access to Dan Scavino, White House social media director, and they “exert governmental control over certain aspects” of the account, that Trump cannot block anyone from following the account.

“The viewpoint-based exclusion of the individual plaintiffs from that designated public forum is proscribed by the First Amendment and cannot be justified by the president’s personal First Amendment interests,” Buchwald wrote

Although Judge Buchwald hasn’t expressly ordered Donald Trump from unblocking the accounts he has already banned from following him and viewing his tweets, Jameel Jaffer, the Knight First Amendment Institute’s executive director says that it goes without saying that Trump should do the “right thing” and unblock everyone from his account.

“The position the Trump administration is taking is that the president is entitled to block people, and that the court lacks the ability to order him to do otherwise. The right thing for the president and his social media director to do would be to log into the president’s account and unblock everyone who has been blocked on the basis of viewpoint,” Jaffer said.

A spokeswoman for the Justice department has said that they “disagree” with the court’s decision and are contemplating their next move.

She has a long and storied Twitter career of calling Trump out on the social media platform.

Which, after 9 years, finally came to a head when Teigen sent out this tweet.

Apparently all of her other insults, clapbacks, and shutdowns didn’t hurt Trump as much as this tweet. Because it’s the one that finally caused him to block her.

Teigen found the entire situation hilarious, because Trump used a staunchly anti-Liberal platform to help get him elected, and, as we all know, liberals are often ridiculed for wanting “safe spaces”.

Teigen, like everyone else, saw the news that Trump’s blocking of people on Twitter was directly ruled as a violation of the First Amendment, so she offered up this Tweet in response.

Looks like she’s going to go back to her trolling ways, and there really isn’t anything the President can do about it, unless he wants to violate the very constitution he made an oath to uphold to the American people.

And people are very excited.

Even if Teigen reshot and re-uploaded the video for unbeknownst reasons (aka John being the in background and not wanting to be embroiled in any messy politic stuff).

Looks like the Teigen-Trump Twitter drama is back on, people. (source: nytimes)

20 ‘I’m Just Not Having It’ Moments That Are All Too Relatable

We’ve all had one of those days where we just don’t feel like interacting with humanity.

But, we are social creatures and have to ultimately find a life by functioning in society, with other people. Otherwise, why waste your time? Just go and become a hermit.

Although that’s a tad on the extreme side, and most of us aren’t going to do that, that doesn’t mean we have to like all of our human interactions of put up with them. Just ask these people and animals how they deal with the days that just can’t be dealt with.

1. Did the dog roll up the window?

2. Not interested in baths.

3. Blue steel, dude, not “You’re-gonna-get-murdered-steel”.

6. “Nah, I’m good.”

8. No. Brush. Teeth.

9. This mom who found out her son was rioting in Baltimore.

Wendy's Just Roasted McDonald's Over Their Ice Cream Machine And We're On Their Side

Ever wandered into a McDonald’s on a warm summers day for some refreshing ice cream only to be told that the ice cream machine isn’t working? You’re not the only one. In fact, there’s an entire meme that centres around McDonald’s ice cream machines not working…

These are all classics, by the way. 

And now, the fast food joint behind everyone’s favorite Twitter account, Wendy’s, has got in on the action. In a reply to a tweet about Fisher-Price’s McDonald’s Soda Fountain, which includes an ice cream machine, Wendy’s delivered this burn…

Someone needs a visit to the burn unit. This isn’t the first time that the geniuses behind Wendy’s Twitter account have roasted McDonald’s. Here’s a reply to a tweet that McDonald’s corporate account probably didn’t mean to send out…

And Wendy’s also went on the warpath in response to McDonald’s announcement back in March that quarter pounder burgers in the majority of their restaurants will be cooked with fresh beef by mid-2018. 

McDonald’s just can’t catch a break. Social media users seemed to enjoy this latest burn even more that those last two. 

It even made some people hungry. 

For many, the winner was clear. 

This user is even planning McDonald’s funeral. 

Get these people a pay rise. 

Others were just as brutal as the red-haired girl herself.

Sean Spicer Just Admitted To 'Screwing Up' On A Few Things—Too Little, Too Late?

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer didn’t have an easy job. He had to answer questions from journalists everyday about his boss, the President of the United States, and all of the drama that has been pouring out of his administration. But (though he looked stressed out right up until his resignation) Spicer did cover for all those things. He tried, anyway.

Spicer is on some sort of redemption tour, which means he is subjecting himself to public questions again. On Thursday, he appeared on HLN with S.E. Cupp and faced some of her questions about the inauguration and his comparison to Hitler when discussing Bashar Assad and bombing Syria. And more. There were a lot of lies to cover.

“There were times where I screwed up. There’s no question about,” said Spicer. “The inauguration. You brought it up. I would say that’s first and foremost. There was an event where I was trying to talk about how evil [Bashar] Assad was, and I screwed that up royally.”

Most of the interview is Spicer asking for citations and claiming he doesn’t remember most of the lies he told. Then in a conversation with Van Jones, he does admit to making some “mistakes.” Okay.

No one is really willing to accept Spicer’s rewrite of his own personal history:

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?

President Trump Just Tweeted Another Violent Image At CNN—Happy Holidays!

Christmas is a time of family, joy and reflection when we all gather to revel in merriment and reconnect with loved ones we haven’t seen in awhile. Carols are sung, eggnog is poured and time is taken to evaluate the lessons learned in the prior year to better utilize them during the next.

President Donald Trump on the other hand, has taken this opportunity to further his WAR on CNN, whom he considers the leader of the “Fake News” mafia.

Yes, the president chose Christmas Eve as the perfect time to retweet a blood-spattered shoe meme with the caption “WINNING,”  attacking CNN.

The original tweet was sent by a staunch supporter of 45’s, whom the President felt needed a larger audience.

Stay classy.

Well if that doesn’t scream ‘Happy Holidays!’, I don’t know what does.

CNN’s “State of the Union” anchor, Jake Tapper, first noticed the tweet and replied:

Twitter was equally disgusted…

Is anyone keeping score? Do we know who this round goes to? It’s certainly not the American people.

The Director Of 'The Last Jedi' Just Responded To Massive Backlash On The Internet

It has been a week since The Last Jedi released and the world is still torn on it. While everyone agrees that it was a very, very different kind of Star Wars film, no one can seem to agree if that is a good thing or not. Should the franchise remain what we know and love? Or should it evolve into something different?

Wherever you fall on this debate, I, for one at least think it is good we are having it. One of the biggest complaints about Hollywood is that they make the same things over and over again. So shouldn’t we be wanting something new? 

Was The Last Jedi too new?

Director Rian Johnson has finally chimed in on this issue. While I think we all suspected that he would stand by his work, he did also mention that dividing people was never his intention. 

But much like The Last Jedi itself people are really divided on Johnson’s answer. 

This will be a fight that lasts a long time. It will only end when the light side and the dark side can strike a balance.

Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' Breaks Billboard Top 10, And Carey Just Responded

Christmas albums are a guilty pleasure. If you play me some Yuletide songs from December 26h until November 30th of the following year, I’ll roll my eyes and dream of the different ways I can drop-kick you into oblivion.

However, from December 1st until the 25th, I’d really love it if you could just blast Christmas songs all day. I don’t even care what they are, I don’t care how slow they are, I don’t care how old they are, I don’t even care what language they’re in – I wanna hear them.

I mean everything about the song: the music video, the lyrics, Mariah’s Christmas pajamas and the bell sounds in it are nothing short of perfection.

And as it turns out, there are tons of people who agree with me, I mean how else would a song that debuted in 1994, somehow, 23 years later, make it to the Billboard Top 10 chart, if it wasn’t absolutely adored?

That’s right: The holiday staple beat out a bunch of new releases to break into the top ten play chart because it’s that friggin’ good.

Mariah Carey was super thankful for the resurgence and let her fans know.

And apparently they’re called lambs, which is about a good a name as any, I guess? Unless Maybe Carey really likes shawarma or something.

Is it an indication of our generation’s obsession with everything ’90s?

Or maybe it’s because Carey is somehow viewed as a plucky underdog who had to persevere the test of time?

I mean that can’t be right, it’s not like the song wasn’t successful when it debuted. 

People started taking a stab at how they thought Mariah was taking the news.

While others brought up irrefutable points.

I mean come on, it’s not like they’re wrong, are they?

Apparently there’s a movement now to bring “All I Want for Christmas Is You” out of the top 10 and into Billboard’s Top 5 category.

I mean, why stop there? Why not make it gun for that number one spot? 

Let’s make it happen people. Let’s do it for Mariah. No…not Mariah – for CHRISTMAS.

Roy Moore Just Doubled Down On Refusing To Concede, With An Even More Absurd Excuse

On Tuesday, December 12, Republican Roy Moore lost the special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Session’s vacant Senate seat. Senator-elect Doug Jones is the first Democrat Alabama has elected since the early 1990s, in part due to myriad controversies surrounding Moore. Judge Moore has been twice removed from the bench as a result of his defiance of federal rulings. Just last year, he was ousted after ordering probate judges to ignore the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage and  refuse marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

In a move anyone familiar with Moore’s history will find unsurprising, the former candidate is refusing to concede the election to Jones, claiming he is waiting for every ballot to be counted. 

Moore is now suggesting voter fraud may have played a role in his loss.

In a December 15 email to his supporters, Moore asked for contributions to his “Election Integrity Fund” and claimed, “this battle is NOT OVER!”  

Moore released a video in which he continues his campaign rhetoric while undercutting the results of Tuesday’s election:

Some people predicted this scenario:

Even  Moore’s Republican allies, including President Donald Trump (who went so far as to cut a robo-call in support of the candidate), have said Moore should concede the race.  

Sen. John Thune (R-SD) said of the loss:

So we have to deal now with another Democrat in the Senate, but Roy Moore lost that election. It’s over. We’ll move on and do the best that we can in the days ahead to continue to move an agenda forward that is good for the American people.

Doug Jones acknowledged on NBC’s Today Show that sometimes it’s difficult to move on from a bitterly fought race, but also said there was “no doubt” in his mind regarding the results of the elections, and that Moore would “do well to go ahead and let’s get this behind us.” The results of the election will be officially certified between December 26 and January 3. 

Alabama’s secretary of state, John Merrill, believes it is “highly unlikely” Jones will not be declared the winner.
