Welcome to the #MisfitMemo, a weekly rewind of some of our best (worst?) tweets and posts! This week we created a hashtag mocking Louise Mensch and watched it go viral, published some great articles, and generally slayed Twitter.
Hope you enjoy!
The latest in the never ending onslaught of Chelsea Clinton, Variety put out an issue with what seems to be a photoshopped Chels on the cover.
A British Olympian (also running for MP) blusters that North Korea has a "handle on obesity." Socialism is cool because starving means no more fatties!
A terrible attack in Fresno left three people dead. In a strange, if not transparent, choice AP translated "Allahu Akbar" in their original tweet.
After a lot of backlash, they updated their headline. Dan wasn't impressed and neither were the rest of us.
The House special election in Georgia's 6th district had the Democrats and their Hollywood mouthpieces drooling. They said a win would be a "referendum" on Trump, despite the fact that he only won there by 1 percentage point. YUGE referendum, indeed.
Alyssa Milano was the most vocal and proclaimed she would continue to travel the country to fight the good fight. Next stop: MONTANA!
From Berkeley to Howard Dean to the Washington Post, speech was a hot topic this week. Free speech, hate speech, provocative speech, etc. the 1st Amendment was discussed...ignorantly.
The March for Science was as political as we expected. If you disagree that it should be you hate science or something. But come on, what do you expect from the same people that deny a fetus is a baby, but climate change is #SettledScience!
Of course we didn't limit our smart and snarky remarks to just these topics, so here's the best of the rest!
We have to admit. We kinda miss Dwayne, too.
Bingo Gringo. Why do people have to rain on our parade?

Oh! We almost forgot...
Just a gaggle of people from all over who have similar interests and loud opinions mixed with a dose of humor. We met on Twitter.
