Trump Threw A Hannukkah Party Last Night–And The Guest List Left People Enraged

Rarely one to take the high road, President Donald Trump decided to use this year’s White House Hannukah party to send a very partisan message by not inviting the majority of Jewish House members — Democrats — to the festivities.

A mere 300 guests attended, instead of the traditional 1,700 bipartisan attendees.

Fresh on the heels of Trump’s controversial declaration that Jerusalem is now the capital of Israel, the Republican Jewish Coalition and America First Action (Trump allies) hosted the White House’s version of the “Festival of Lights” in a room flanked by Christmas trees and evergreen garlands. The event featured the lighting of a small menorah by Trump’s young grandchildren, who are being raised in the Jewish faith by his daughter, Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner. 

As you can imagine, this did not sit well with liberals:

Some Twitter users tried to help us envision the intimatefête:

The two Jewish members of Congress who were invited, out of 30 Jewish congressional leaders, were Republican Representatives Lee Zeldin (NY) and David Kustoff (Tenn). Trump also left Reform Jewish leadership and progressive Jewish activists, many of whom have been critical of him or his policies, off this year’s guest list.

Jewish organizations in attendance included those with far-right leanings, like Zionist Organization of America President Morton Klein who, according to the New York Times, had himself been excluded from the annual White House shindig during Obama’s presidency. 

The NYT reported:

“He did not invite people who have been hostile to him,” Mr. Klein said in an interview. He should know. After being invited to the 2009 White House Hanukkah party during President Barack Obama’s first year in office, Mr. Klein was later cut from the guest list after condemning the former president in scathing terms. (Last year, Mr. Klein referred to Mr. Obama as a “Jew-hating anti-Semite.”)

Hold up! Speaking of Obama, let’s not forget this gem:

Twitter users remembered — and they had the receipts:

Actor and comedian Roseanne Barr tweeted in fawning support of Trump:

And was treated to an immediate smackdown:

This Bathroom-Inspired Restaurant Has People Eating From Toilet Bowls

The world is packed with some pretty strange restaurants.

But in the highly competitive world of food service, restaurants are doing everything in their power to stand out.

The fact is, you could probably get a cheeseburger everywhere, but the experience of getting that cheeseburger will ensure whether or not a person decides to return to your establishment. Which may be the reason why the Cheesecake Factory decided to make its interior just so unique.

Or why in the world this PF Chang’s in Edgewater, New Jersey has two gigantic Mongolian Horse Sentinels standing outside, scaring off anyone who parks in the restaurant’s lot just to saunter around the nearby boardwalk, which is something I totally don’t do with my family on a regular basis.

But these restaurants just have notable designs. They’re like the Gordon Gartrell sweaters of the culinary world.

What about other restaurants that are just plain disgusting? What about a restaurant that has you literally eating out of toilet bowls and thinking about gross bodily functions while you slurp down on something with a texture not that dissimilar from feces?

I mean, no one would actually eat there, would they? 

Actually, they would. What you’re looking at up above is a bathroom-inspired restaurant located in Taipei, Taiwan.

At Modern Toilet, customers can expect to chow, slurp, and swallow dishes straight out of toilet bowls.

The walls are decorated with tiles. The restaurant’s hot pot dish is served in a toilet. People drink out of small urinals. The chocolate ice cream they serve as a dessert is colored and swirled to most closely resemble feces and is served in a tiny ceramic bidet.

Twitter wasn’t too thrilled about the prospect of eating out of something you would ordinarily use for bodily functions.

I mean, if a fictional electric mouse creature is telling you the idea is bad, then it’s probably pretty, pretty bad.

For some Twitter users, eating at the restaurant wouldn’t be that much of a stretch.

For others, well, they were just conflicted.

What about you? Would you ever want to slurp on some ramen from a toilet bowl?

It’s worth mentioning that, of course, no one actually used these bowls as toilets before serving the food.

This 'Holiday' Pizza Is Covered In Melted Candy Canes And People Are Horrified

Hey, are you someone who would actually enjoy scarfing down melted candy canes burned into a pizza?

No, this isn’t a joke. Someone actually thought that making this monstrosity would be a good idea.

In case you’re wondering if anyone actually baked something like this, I assure you, this is real.

At first, people weren’t sure if the person who made this ungodly mess was serious or not.

She even had the audacity to compare this to pineapples on pizza.

People were convinced she was serious, at first.

But it wasn’t long before she was exposed as taking the images from another post.

And she admitted to it, because, who the heck in their right mind would make such an awful thing?

Twitter ultimately didn’t care who made the nasty pizza, they just wanted it to be destroyed. Immediately.

Keep this pizza and everything it stands for away from me, please.

Woman Tweets 2008 Trivial Pursuit Question That Did Not Age Well–And People Can't Even

Writer S.E. Sinkhorn posted a pic to Twitter of an old Trivial Pursuit card from 2008. Less than ten years ago in time, perhaps a million years in feelings. There’s so much we know now that we didn’t know then, and most of it is bad.

It’s perhaps understandable then, why Sinkhorn took the question, “Who has never been Batman?” pretty personally.

In 2008, the makers of Trivial Pursuit thought we’d live in a world where Ben Affleck would never be Batman. Little did they know.

Everyone in the replies was upset that the game gave movie execs ideas, but they still had a few knocks to get out against other offending Batmans:

Also, someone pointed out this was a similar question in an edition of Cranium, though they don’t specify the year this edition was printed. But if it preceded Affleck’s casting as the dark knight, that’s scary:

People Are Challenging Taylor Swift's Bad Girl Image And Their Stories Are Inspirational

Taylor Swift stans are not great about reading the room. While Swift has certainly produced some legitimate bops, her latest album has not been a critical success. People generally consider her a snake, and even if she is trying to make something of that with her new album, it doesn’t change wider public perception.

When Twitter user @xnulz asked “name a bitch badder than Taylor Swift” the Internet was ready with some answer.

Basically, everyone. At least according to twitter:

That was actually a very insightful list, full of women it’s worth looking up, and looking up to. And if you love Taylor Swift, that’s fine too!

People Are Losing It Over Coat Meghan Markle Just Wore To Her First Royal Engagement

Soon-to-be Princess Meghan Markle made a a dazzling debut on the world stage this week.

Prince Harry and his fiancée made their first official appearance together in the UK, meeting a community that is “very special” to the Prince. The couple did their inaugural royal walkabout through Nottingham, then attended a World AIDS Day event.

Markle charmed people with her glowing smile and warm enthusiasm — and her chic coat:

Later, they visited the Nottingham academy, where they watched young actors perform an improvised play about a “fictional” young couple going public with their secret romance. One of the actors, 19-year-old Taynika Jarrett-Bennett, said, “We wanted to make it a fun play and involve the royals.”

And Markle won over the cast when she complimented their performance.

And so a new royal chapter begins. We think Princess Diana would be proud.

Disappointing Photos Of Crowd At Dallas Cowboys Game Emerge Online–And People Aren't Impressed

I’m from Jersey and over here, pretty much everybody’s a Giants fan. Sure you have the occasional Jets fan who swears their team is the best, but they’re a rarity.

But even up here in the dirty-Jers, you’ll drive by a few houses flying flags that rep the Cowboys. I mean, I never knew we had such a sizable demographic of Dallas lovers in the tri-state area, so much so that people have even written about this strange phenomenon, but it turns out that Cowboys fans are everywhere.

Everywhere except this recent primetime game they had against the Redskins.

The teams’ middling records probably had something to do with the fact that there weren’t many people in attendance, but some people on Twitter had different theories.

But it was enough of a disparity from the other games that people definitely took notice. Surely traffic couldn’t have been that bad?

And this Eagles fan couldn’t help but gloat.

It just wasn’t a good look for the mighty franchise.

Fans were saying that they’ve been to high school football games with higher turnouts and honestly, I have too.

Are fair weather fans to blame?

Is there honor in standing by a losing team? Probably. I mean, think about how happy you’ll be once your franchise actually wins the championship.

Remember Bill Murray’s face when the Cubs finally took home the pennant after so many decades?

I’d say it’s worth having some loyalty. So you’ll see me ecstatic when the Raiders win the Super Bowl. The Steelers would be nice, too.

Lorde And Harry Styles Said 'Hello' At Award Show–And People Are Absolutely Losing It

On Monday night, both Harry Styles and Lorde were up for Best International Artist at the 2017 Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards. Styles took the crown, but he was such a class act about it, and Twitter can’t get enough.

On his way to receive his statue, Styles made a detour to Lorde’s seat and gave her a couple cheek kisses, and yes, we’re freaking out:

Are they friends? Is he just being nice? Did he want to recognize how amazing she is? No one knows for certain, but they’re alternately dying and being brought back to life by this iconic moment:

Now, imagine how Lorde feels about getting kissed by Harry Styles.

Young Dumbledore Is Looking Good In 'Fantastic Beasts' And People Are Not Chill About It

Though it won’t premiere for an entire year, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is already throwing out teasers to get everyone super excited about seeing some of their favorites on the big screen. Except their favorites are being played by brand new actors, which means fans of the Harry Potter franchise have to quickly adjust how they’ve been envisioning these characters. And there was one thing people weren’t prepared for. 

Dumbledore is hot now.

I mean, he’s played by Jude Law, who has that face. The hot one. It’s a bit uncomfortable to see someone you’re used to thinking of as a grandpa suddenly look like a truly fantastic beast, but we all have to come to terms with it.

Though it doesn’t seem like Twitter can:

Eh, it’s awkward, but why not enjoy it? Dumbledore won’t be hot forever, but he’s hot now. Or then. Or in the future, when the movie opens? Prequels are too confusing.

Man Discovers Problem With 'Alvin And The Chipmunks,' And People Jumped On The Bandwagon

Needless to say, Alvin and the Chipmunks is one of the greatest, most popular franchises of all time. We all look forward to Alvin, Simon, Theodore, and their seasonal shenanigans. BUT HOLD UP. Have we been so blindly passionate about these harmonizing rodents that we overlooked a major flaw in their story?! 

It seems impossible, but Twitter user Noah Garfinkel has made us question everything:

HOW COULD WE HAVE MISSED THIS?!

We must correct this egregious error!

Let’s brainstorm some possible new names:

Of course, there will always be Alvin purists…

WE’RE LIVING IN A STRANGE NEW WORLD…

And it won’t stop with Alvin. Everything will be different now. Everything will change:
