Welcome to the latest edition of the Misfit Weekly Rewind, where we round up our best tweets and blog posts from the week. We laughed, we cried, we...well maybe not, but we did have a lot of fun, and we’d love for you to join us.
So let’s get this party started!
The week got off to a roaring start, with The Atlantic publishing a piece so ridiculous, so stupid, so insane...well - see for yourself:
In arguably one of the most hilarious moments on Twitter to date, Senator Ted Cruz punked the sports website Deadspin after writer Ashley Feinberg tried to take him down a notch. Emphasis on “tried,” because the response from Cruz was nothing short of glorious:
Instead of handling this smackdown in good humor, Deadspin decided to double down, and hilarity ensued.
The 2017 March for Life took place last week, and it was a huge success, as always. It was especially historic, as Vice President Pence attended and addressed the crowd personally (the highest ranking public official ever to do this). The pro-choice leftists had a field day with their ugly, snide remarks and insults, of course.
Trump signed an Executive Order on refugees, nobody took the time to really read it, and the internet has nearly imploded into itself. The factually wrong hashtag #MuslimBan took off (note: there is no Muslim ban) and people left and right are losing their minds, to put it mildly.
