WE THAT 45 IS INSPIRING THE WORLD TO RESIST
Coke may have taught the world to sing, but 45 is teaching it to Resist. Last Saturday, hundreds of thousands (perhaps millions, but we don’t want to exaggerate – waiting to see aerial photographs to confirm) participated in the March for Science in 600+ cities across the world, including D.C., Bangladesh, Sydney, London, and Berlin. The inspired signs demonstrated just how clever the world’s scientists are.
WE THE POSSIBILITY THAT PAPA BEAR O’REILLY IS A TOM WAITS FAN
The woman who ultimately brought down Fox’s beloved sexual harasser revealed that his name for her was “Hot Chocolate.” Which begs the question: Had O’Reilly been listening to Waits’s song, “Black Jesus?”
WETHE BLUE SURGE IN GEORGIA
Demographics have shifted in Georgia, which is now younger, less white, and hipper than it was when voters sent Newt Gingrich to Washington. Democrat Jon Ossoff’s first-place finish last Tuesday shows just how much the state has changed.
WE THESE 30 “NEW AMERICANS” FELLOWS OF THE SOROS FOUNDATION
Meet the Soros Class of 2017, immigrants and children of immigrants to the U.S., who are off to graduate school next Fall with hefty scholarships to support the contributions they are poised to make to our country.
WE THESE HIGH SCHOOL JOURNALISTS WHO BUSTED THEIR PRINCIPAL
45 has made investigative journalism cool again. Good ‘ole fashioned reporting helped these Kansas students bring down their lyin’ principal. Their reward? The kids are currently shopping for Black Tie outfits to wear to the White House Correspondents’ dinner, where they’ve been invited as VIPs. Woodward & Bernstein will be presenting the awards. 45 will not attend.
WETHIS HEARTFELT VIDEO OF SUPER BOWL CHAMPS EXPLAINING WHY THEY TURNED DOWN INVITATION TO MEET 45
Defensive end Chris Long and free safety Devin McCourty join die-hard Patriots fans to speak out against 45 and explain why they skipped their team’s trip to D.C.
WE TAKING ACTION: HELP TURN BIG SKY COUNTRY BLUE
The Resistance is showing up in droves to help flip a Montana Congressional seat to Blue. The candidate: Gun-toting, folk singer cowboy Rob Quist. Strong bi-partisan support has already put over $2 million into his campaign coffers. Use this handy tool to help Quist GOTV, no matter where you live.
