As America comes to terms with its decision to give a billionaire gameshow host the most powerful job in the world, people from around the world have voiced their opinions. One such person is Mexican cartel kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

In response to the Trump victory, “El Chapo” turned to Twitter, where he previously threatened President-elect Trump. Before quoting Martin Luther King, Jr., El Chapo tweeted:

Currently being held in Mexican prison, El Chapo awaits US extradition. The NY Daily News says they were unable to verify the twitter account @ElChap0Guzman; “though it is believed by some to be run by those close to the imprisoned 61-year-old gangster.”

In the past El Chapo has used to Twitter to threaten Trump, after Trump made disparaging remarks about the Mexican people, claiming that they were “rapists” and “drug dealers.”

“Keep f--king around, and I’ll make you eat all of your godd—n words, f—king whitey f—t @realDonaldTrump,” replied El Chapo.

In response to that, Donald Trump contacted the FBI becuase that's really scary. 

The CEO of food delivery app GrubHub added something new to the menu that not everyone seems to like. Offering support to employees who feel marginalized or afraid due to the outcome of the presidential election, CEO Matt Maloney sent out a company-wide memo assuring them that they have his full support. However, those who agree with Trump’s message, he indicates, should get the check.

Maloney, who hoped to assure employees that GrubHub was a company dedicated to diversity and inclusion, alienated employees and customers alike by saying that if they don’t agree with this as the company’s mission statement to “reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here.”

Some people saw this as getting an unwanted side of intolerance, while others think it’s like getting free guac from Chipotle.

Here’s how twitter reacted:

The Mannequin Challenge can be a bunch of things, but activism is not usually the first one that comes to mind. Well, that’s about to change. 

In this powerful video, this Mannequin Challenge challenges police brutality to create a memorable statement of protest for the Black Lives Matter movement. From Trayvon Martin to to Colin Kaepernick, the video is filled with references to the fight for civil rights, inspiring a call to action and, ironically, movement. Using audio from police shootings of unarmed people, the video is a sharp departure from the typical Mannequin Challenge, but may be the only one that is required viewing.

Not everyone is happy with the election results from last night — in fact, a solid half of the country really doesn't like it very much at all. But two states are already forming a plan. Californians and New Yorkers on Twitter are calling for a California Exit (Calexit) and a New York Exit (NYexit), respectively, which would see them both seceding from these United States.

Does that mean they're taking Disneyland with them? The Statue of Liberty? Yes. Yes, it does.

Eric Trump May Have Sent an Illegal Tweet from the Voting Booth

Sometime between smoking in the boys room and slapping a “kick me sign” on his little bro’s back, Eric Trump found the time to vote this morning and did so Trump style. Not one to be held down by the constraints of the law, Trump took it upon himself to allegedly break one while in the voting booth.

Snapping a picture of what could be the only time that his dad will be on the ballot, Eric, who probably likes to go by the nickname “Bones” or “Daywalker,” Tweeted his excitement to his followers without regard for the rules, man. Well, it just so happens that that was illegal — not that he cares.

Well, he sort of cares because he deleted the tweet, which Yahoo thankfully posted.

That might not matter, though, because the NY Daily News spoke to a lawyer about this: 

“I’m glad to see Eric Trump engaged in our valued tradition of civil disobedience by showing his ballot on the internet. However, according to the federal court what he did was illegal and he could face up to one year in jail,” said lawyer Leo Glickman, who represented voters who’d challenged the law in a federal suit. “He should have conferred with me before posting his ballot.”

No word yet if the renegade tweeter will be apprehended for the offense, but it’s good to know that there’s still someone out there breaking the rules for the rest of us.

izod made ken bone a twitter emoji for the election

So it’s come to this: Ken Bone is now an emoji.

I suppose we have no one to blame but ourselves. After all, as soon as he popped his mustachioed face onto our TV screens during the second presidential debate, we were hooked. We wanted to be Ken Bone. We wanted to idolize Ken Bone. We wanted to turn Ken Bone into a sexy Halloween costume. We wanted to search out Ken Bone’s sketchy history on Reddit. We got our wish.

via GIPHY

All of that was leading to this moment. Izod, the official sponsor of Ken Bone, has made the infamous undecided voter a Twitter emoji. With his squared off glasses, brisling facial hair, and signature, red Izod sweater, Ken Bone was born to be an emoji, and now he is one. Forever etched into the history books, the name "Ken Bone" has a symbol that future generations will ponder over, study, and perhaps worship just as we have. Simply use the hashtag #MyVote2016 on Twitter, and he'll appear, watching, protecting, tagging.

In the end, maybe this is where things were always heading. Andy Warhol famously said that in the future everyone would have their 15 minutes of fame, but maybe what he really meant was everyone would have their own emoji. Just look at him, staring back at you, asking a seemingly innocent question about clean energy. What does he look like? Does he resemble all of us, perhaps?

If you stare long enough at the Ken Bone emoji, the Ken Bone emoji stares back.

Frankly, I’m just a little dizzy from the whole thing. Reach out if you even know what’s going on anymore.
