Donald Trump was speaking in Buffalo, New York when he referenced September 11, 2001, as you do when you are an American politician. Instead of saying "9/11" though, he accidentally said "7-11". If you thought the internet was just going to let that one go, you were wrong.
After David Cameron (and lots of other politicians) have been implicated in the Panama Papers debacle, the hit TV show 'House of Cards' dug up the above old Tweet from the British prime minister to troll him with this gif.
George Mason University's Law School has recently been renamed "the Antonin Scalia School of Law" in honor of the late Supreme Court justice. Soon they'll be renaming it again because someone didn't think to check what the acronym of that new name spelled. And that acronym is....

Following several mocking Tweets, the new name will be "the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University". Which is a shame because, according to his opponents, that name isn't nearly as representative of the man it was named for.
A man working construction on Trump Tower Vancouver put a Mexican flag at the top of the building to highlight the work that Mexican immigrants do, even for people like Trump. Along with the picture, he added this explanation on the Facebook post (we've only quoted part of the post):
WHY DID I PUT A MEXICAN FLAG ON THE ROOF TOP OF TRUMP TOWER VANCOUVER, ??????
Because from the concrete pouring, finishing, drywall, taping, wood forming and general labour, Mexicans were there, building it,doing good work, the comments Trump has made about us, did not stop us from doing the high quality work we have always done, in our home country or when we migrate to the US/Canada,MR Trump, we did our best work, your tower here in Vancouver is premium quality, and we were a crucial part of it, not just Mexicans but immigrants as a whole, like your ancestors were, you are not native american, the insults you have said about us, have not changed our work ethics.
During a rally in Portland, Bernie Sanders was met by a tiny bird. When he started talking about the bird in terms of metaphor, he came right up to the podium to greet him. If you're wondering if this became a meme, of course it did, with it's own hashtag #birdiesanders.
The real question is, is Birdie Sanders a new surprise candidate for president crashing Bernie's rally or simply the future VP?
As for presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders' new Disney princess status, it looks like someone called that long ago. Because there's a Disney princess version of everything out there.
Australia's prime minister,Malcolm Turnbull, just came up with a new campaign premise that 'Veep' fans will be a little too familiar with. He talks about keeping continuity... but also changing, something that Julia Louise-Dreyfus's character on 'Veep' also promised.
You can see him explain it right here:
Actors and creators involved on the show, 'Veep', commented on how surprised they were that this turned into a real political talking point. Maybe they were too good at parodying politics?
