Senator Tammy Duckworth Shares Selfie After Breaking Her Leg During A Workout

WARNING: The photo in this article may be AWESOME.

Usually a photo of a broken leg could be unsettling at best, and gruesome at worst. But Senator Tammy Duckworth from Illinois just proved that a broken leg can be hilarious. 

For those unfamiliar with Duckworth, she’s a former U.S. Army helicopter pilot who lost both legs in 2004 after a her helicopter was shot down over Iraq. She now wears prosthetic legs. 

Clearly a badass woman with a sense of humor, Duckworth tweeted:

Alex Jones Shares Video ‘Proving' Michelle Obama 'Is A Man'—And Chelsea Clinton Shot Back

Conservative commentator Alex Jones is at it again. 

This time he shared a video that he claims is “final proof that  Michelle Obama is a man.” Oh, and he implied that Joan Rivers was killed for revealing this information.

Riiiiight.

Jones, who has previously suggested that the Sandy Hook massacre was a  hoax and who has cast doubt on 9/11, has long promoted the theory that Michelle Obama was born a man but said the ‘new viral video’ proved that he did not invent the theory himself.

We won’t dignify the video with an embed here, but here’s a taste of Jones’s words on the matter: 

“Analyzing the photographs, Michelle appears to have a very large penis in her pants. Her shoulders are wide, her face is very, very, masculine.”

“She looks like a tranny and so you ask yourself, are the children a beard?” 

DailyMail

Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter to slam Jones and praise the former First Lady.

Chelsea also made sure to mention she didn’t visit Jones’s InfoWars site.

Others chimed in, supporting Chelsea and Michelle.

And she will continue to fight the good fight. Bravo Chelsea! Thank you for persisting!

Reporter Shares Photo Of Oval Office Under Construction, And People Have Concerns

The White House is a historic institution that is among the most important buildings in our young nation.

While Donald Trump is on a very important/his 48th visit to a golf course this week, the Oval Office is undergoing some renovations. And as we all know, Trump is known for going a tad overboard with interior decoration.

A reporter snapped a pic of the empty office in a truly resonant symbol of our times:

So as we are left to ponder the results of these redecorations on Trump’s watch, people have concerns. 

With 2,000 likes, this simple request seems to be resonating.

Trump already replaced the muted red curtains in the Oval Office with gold curtains because consistent branding is important to salesmen. He’s already on record as saying that the White House is a ‘dump.’ And his current vacation is slated to last another two weeks, so whatever is happening in the Oval Office has plenty of time to happen. 

Artists’ renderings of what the redecoration might look like flooded the Internet. 

Not everyone was so concerned though. For Eric, the empty room offered a bit of relief. 

And this user imagined what an exterior renovation might look like.

Here’s hoping the drapes are where it ends.

Model Shares Terrible Story Of Her Assault To Challenge How We Raise Girls

Australian model Jessica Leahy is encouraging parents to change how they socialize young girls and boys so that both can grow up in a safer society. Part of that means sharing her own stories of harassment, some of which are extremely harrowing.

Leahy has been harassed a lot in her life, and not just because she’s gorgeous. Women everywhere can harassed by men. She wrote about her experiences for Whimm, explaining what she thinks needs to change if life for women is going to change.

Leahy’s experience is sadly way too common:

Leahy wants parents to stop teaching girls to be”good” or quiet, especially when they’re the targets of harassment or abuse. She writes, “From birth, we are told not to be rude, or bossy, or difficult and above all, not to be a bitch. And it’s this obsession with ‘being nice’ that is getting good girls into bad trouble.”

But it’s not just on girls to change and get less “nice.” Leahy writes that for women, it’s a constant struggle to decide which battles to fight. It can be exhausting calling out and confronting every instance of sexual harassment and sexism you encounter everyday. 

She asks that men start stepping in when they see a woman being harassed. She asks that when men are along together that they call out “locker room talk.” She says what we need are “decent guys raised to be equally invested in making bacon out of chauvinist pigs.” 

Give the ladies a break and pick up some of the slack, fellas. Or at the very least, keep your hands to yourself.

Man Shares Photos Of Racist Trump Supporter’s Car, And Twitter Exploded

They say you can tell a lot about a person by their car. We don’t know who owns or drives the car that Krang T. Nelson (seriously, Twitter, never change, these name puns are amazing…) parked next to, but the Twitterverse has collectively decided they’re the absolute worst. 

Things started with Twitter user @KrangTNelson posting this tweet.

For those having trouble seeing, we’ll go image by image. 

First up, this person has a noose hanging from their rear-view mirror.

This is the most troubling image of the three, given the recent unfortunate resurgence of the noose as a symbol of racial intimidation among white supremacists.

Next, there’s a sticker depicting Trump attacking Obama.

Wrapping up the trifecta of terrible, we have aNickelbackCD.

Twitter exploded with responses.

Intellectually based and factually correct snark is the very best kind of snark. Very high quality.

Took the words out of our mouth.

One user had a not-so-subtle suggestion for Krang.

Succinct and to the point.

@Damons had a different perspective than most.

Northeast really just wants everyone to be happy.

Is this a thing? Please let this be a thing.

Saint Krang DOES have a nice ring to it.

Steve-O Shares Graphic Photo Of Injury From His Most Dangerous Stunt Yet

Source

Mankind still has many questions about the nature of existence: what is dark matter? What is it like inside a black hole? How is Steve-O still alive? These questions continue to baffle even the most prominent scientists in their field. Take the Steve-O one, for instance. He recently posted this photo to Instagram which shows his body covered in painful first and second degree burns.

What happened, Steve-O? Was it just another ordinary day of dodging full-sized fireworks, eating brick pizza ovens, or kissing active volcanos (all things I assume you’ve done)? No, it turns out, Steve-O got these burns while making “snow” angels in rocket engine fuel.

[I] put a tea cup of all this stuff on top of my head and then I just f*****g put a blanket of the s**t on the floor and f*****g laid it. I was making snow angels with rocket engine fuel.

Apparently, it’s the “grand finale” of Steve-O’s upcoming comedy special, that “ties a lot of s**t together.”

Warning: In this video Steve-O is both shirtless and covered in burns. 

HOW ARE YOU STILL LIVING?!

Journalist Shares Photos Of Empty Seats After Trump Said His Rally 'Broke All Records'

Journalist Shares Photos Of Empty Seats After Trump Said His Rally ‘Broke All Records’

President Donald Trump held a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday evening, a place he described as “just rotting… a war zone” during his presidential campaign. He seemed to change his mind last night, describing the city as a “wonderful, beautiful place.” The event, which marked his 100th day in office, took place at the same time as the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, an event which presidents usually attend. Back in February though, Trump declined his invitation via Twitter.  

As we’ve all come to know, President Trump is obsessed with ratings, consistently arguing that his Inauguration attracted the largest audience in history, despite figures to the contrary. And last night was no different, during his speech, Trump claimed that the rally broke the “all-time” record for the arena that seats 7,000. 

But Jonathan Tamari, a Washington correspondent for the Philly Inquirer, seems to think otherwise. After the claim, Tamari shared several photos of empty rows. 

“Large and loud but not quite capacity crowd as Pence arrives,” Tamari wrote. “Several rows open at top of arena, and some space on the floor.” 

Those empty seats? In his speech, President Trump claimed that fire marshals wouldn’t let some people in.  

“Thank the fire marshals. They have a lot of people standing outside. We really maxed out. We broke the all-time record for this arena. We broke the all-time record.”

But in a reply to Tamari’s photo, Associated Press journalist Marc Levy claimed that no one was waiting outside during the event. 

Following criticism of his tweet, Tamari explained that while the crowd was big, Trump’s claims went too far. 

And later clarified that the images were taken as Trump was giving his speech. 

The local fire department is yet to comment on whether they stopped people from entering the arena. 

Ratings aren’t everything, Donald.

Woman Shares Story Of How Her Ex-Boyfriend Ended Up With A Face Full Of Foot Dust

We’ve all had someone in some point of our lives that simply refuses to listen to what we have to say. They’re usually the people that end up getting the boot, and that was the case with Sarah Gailey and her now ex-boyfriend.

Now ‘foot dust’ is a rather odd term unless you regularly scrape down the callouses on your feet, which you really need to start doing if you don’t already. The texture is both grainy and airy, and if you miss whatever container you’re discarding the shavings in, the small pile of former you scatters all over the place and becomes even more difficult to clean.

With that in mind, check out Sarah’s story on how her boyfriend ended up with a face full of her relative’s foot dust.

Daughter Shares Hilarious Text From Dad After Meeting Alpacas For The First Time

Alexandria Neonakis’ father is currently vacationing in Peru, and has been updating everyone on his time there. There are plenty of things to see in a country other than yours that make you fall in love with the place. For Neonakis’ father, it was alpacas.

He sent this text to his daughter with what may be the best first impression an animal ever gave a person in all of history.

Alpacas quickly and permanently became his favorite animal on the planet.

As with any obsession, one simply wasn’t enough, and her father followed up with this picture shortly after he sent the first one.

Neonakis wanted to share her father’s joy with everyone, so she posted their convo to Twitter.

Unsurprisingly, everyone loved the fact that her father fell in love with alpacas.

The tweet went viral overnight, much to her surprise. (but not to ours, right?)

Hopefully he doesn’t find out that alpacas are also a delicacy in the region.
