Lunch Tweet du Jour

Brace yourself, Conflucians. This one is about Susan Sarandon.

Check out The Guardian’s interview with Sarandon if you can stomach it.

The interview adds more evidence to a hypothesis I’ve been mulling over: a woman who voted for Trump or allowed him to win by spurning Hillary Clinton is *not* a feminist.

This article makes it clear that Sarandon’s problem with Hillary was not her politics. It was her gender. Susan doesn’t like feminists. They’re unpleasant and unlikeable.

Ok, stop laughing. She’s serious.

No, no do not protest. You can not allow Trump to win and call yourself a feminist. It’s not possible.

Ever.

Tweets of the Week

The mini break is over. Time to get to work. But before I do, here are some of the incredible tweets I gathered over the last week. By themselves, they’re nothing. Altogether in a short period of time? You decide:

Riiiiiiight…

A twofer:

Yes, THAT John Dean:

I have a recent interest in Singapore.

We told you so:

But noooooo, WE were called racists for calling out his ties to the finance industry back in 2008.

‘gits.

And the best tweet of the week:

Lololololol!!!!

{{OMG, we’re doomed}}

**********************************

One more that I forgot about. This isn’t a tweet. It’s from Greg Sargent’s PlumLine at WaPo. Markup is my own:

**********************************

Damn, Spotify knows me too well. It’s spooky:

***********************************

New tweets from Andy Slavitt sums up the Trump-Republican era:

Is THAT what Trump voters sent Donald to Washington to do? Because I’m having a hard time understanding how this Makes America Great Again.

And he sent Mark Mulvaney to the CFPB this morning when he was not authorized to do so.

The CFPB is practically the only thing that stands between you and the underhanded practices of bad companies who scam consumers with fees and fine print.

So, there’s that.

Would a Trump supporter care to tell us in the comments EXACTLY he/she expected from Trump? Because they’re not going to just piss off the liberals.
