Reba McEntire Is The New Colonel Sanders And People Are Conflicted

When I think of fried chicken, I think Colonel Sanders. And Colonel Sanders is the epitome of manly ruggedness, with his bolo tie, white linen suit, tiny mustache, and old Southern manners. So, it’s a bit confusing for some that his characters is now being played by Reba McEntire in drag.

It’s not clear if Reba is permanently on the job, or if she’s just there to promote their new flavor Smoky Mountain BBQ, but this version of the Colonel sure throws a helluva hoedown:

Reba teased her transformation on her own Twitter account:

But not everyone is down with a woman Colonel Sanders. Is it sexism? Nostalgia for Rob Lowe’s portrayal? Horror at the uncanny valleyness of Reba’s costume? Disappointment that it’s taken so long for KFC to catch up with the 21st century?

But i’m happy to report that many, many more people are enjoying this change:

According to Time, Reba thinks the whole stunt is finger lickin’ good.

“I thought the transformation was really funny,” McEntire told reporters. “I got a big kick out of it.”

I get a big kick out of Reba McEntire, so if she wants to sell me fried chicken, I won’t get angry about it.

Sarah Sanders Live Tweeted Herself Making A Pie To Put An End To 'Pie Gate'

Back in November, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shared a photo of the Thanksgiving pie she made on Twitter. The problem? It looked a lot like a generic stock photo of a pie…

And social media users, including CNN reporter April Ryan, were quick to call her out on it. Pie Gate was born. 

Fast forward a month, and Sarah Sanders is adamant to prove critics wrong. How? Last night, she live tweeted herself making a pie…

Is that the end of Pie Gate? It appears so. 

Ryan ended up keeping one the pies. 

Though some people still weren’t convinced.

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.
