TGIF, Daily Whaters.
We’ve been through a lot this week. From a public frozen fish graveyard to a washing machine with a brick in it on a trampoline, this has been one for the history books.
But a lot happens in a week, and we are but one website. With that in mind here are some stories that we didn’t get to but think are worth your time.
Enjoy or don’t, the choice is yours!
Have a great weekend!
Tomi Lahren, the hyper-conservative host of Tomi on The Blaze, who you might recognize from the Facebook posts of that dude you went to high school with, visited Trevor Noah on The Daily Show last night, and it went pretty much as expected. Lahren, in her typical hot-headed way, clinged tightly to her platform as she wrestled with a relaxed Trevor Noah over such issues as Black Lives Matter, Colin Kaepernick, immigration, and, of course, that billionaire reality-TV game show host that won the presidency last month.
These segments are basically set up to be viral eviscerations, and this one is no different. Tomi generally feels like she’s on the defense, especially when she says things like “I don’t see color” and “Donald Trump is reasonable.” Final thoughts: This is an awkward half hour that will likely dominate your social media feeds for the next 24 hours.
So prepare to tug your collar because here’s Tomi Lahren on The Daily Show looking for a leg to stand on.
Can you hear that? It’s the sound of “Hello, darkness, my old friend.” Or is that the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme.
Whatever it is, it’s the sound of someone giving into a man that they called a “phony” and “fraud.” At least, that’s the look on Mitt Romney’s face as he eats dinner with Donald Trump as he once again interviews for a job in the Trump administration. He looks scared, broken, and maybe, in danger — harkening back to that time just a few months ago when it looked like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was being held hostage by our president-elect.
But don’t take my word for it, Twitter has already had a go at captioning the saddest night of Mitt Romney’s life — and this guy lost a presidential election.
Check out some of the best reactions to the moment when a million voices inside Mitt Romney cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
President-Elect Donald Trump, the billionaire reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency in November, is a busy guy. Between tweeting that citizens should be jailed for exercising free speech and trying on new hats, he’s also a wheelin’ and dealin’ business man.
Over the past few weeks, you might have heard something about a few of Trump’s “conflicts of interest,” i.e. he’s not supposed to be doing Trump business stuff while he’s doing Trump president stuff because the constitution. When it comes to things like this, it can be hard to follow due to the fact that business is boring. Thankfully, we have The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, who put together this awesome segment explaining Trump’s conflicts of interest.
Check it out and enjoy the next four years, America!
