Another week has flown by and boy was it a doozy! Welcome to the latest edition of the #MisfitMemo Weekly Rewind, where we round up all of our best tweets and blog posts from the week to share with you, dear reader.
We had several terrific blog posts this week, including lots from our favorite guest contributors, so be sure to scroll down and check them out. Don’t forget to follow us at @MisfitsPolitics to keep up with all the latest.
This is the very first edition since President Donald Trump was inaugurated, just days ago. To say it has been a crazy week is putting it mildly, and we had a lot to say about it. So let’s get this party started!
Obama was quite busy his last few days in office, and he raised eyebrows and a lot of ire by commuting the sentences of Bradley “Chelsea” Manning and FALN member Oscar López Rivera.
Betsy DeVos, Trump’s pick for education secretary, faced a contentious confirmation hearing and has endured a lot of wrath from the left.
Sally Kohn did not take the exit of Obama well.
New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait let the mask slip, and what we all saw was downright ugly.
Following a bloody, savage campaign season and election we thought would never end, it finally happened: INAUGURATION DAY!!! It went off without a hitch, except for the, you know, VIOLENT RIOTS...
Several vile, disgusting adults-who-should-know-better in the media mocked 10-year-old Barron Trump. So much for "hands off" the children of presidents, eh?
There was a Women's March held the Saturday after the inauguration. Haven't really figured out what it was all about, but it involved a lot of pu--y hats and anger.
