Thursday Jan 19th 2017

Jackie Onassis, the First Lady to U.S. President John F. Kennedy, has been kicking up a bit of a storm on Twitter in the past few months. So much so, that she's had her account suspended, blue tick and all.

All this, despite the fact she passed away back in 1994. Way before the social platform existed.

The deplorables have arrived in Washington, but they're not exactly united

Thursday Jan 19th 2017

When Hillary Clinton said she believes "half of Trump's supporters" can be put into "the basket of deplorables," no one could have predicted the way they would embrace the term. 

Clinton prefaced the phrase by saying she was being "grossly generalistic," but Trump fans had all they needed. 

SEE ALSO: The alt-right's high school drama reveals a bigger struggle

"Deplorables" appeared on mugs and T-shirts. It became a marker to point to the elitism of Clinton and a rallying cry for those who would vote for her opponent. They called themselves deplorables, and they were proud of label. And now, with an inaugural ball called the "Deploraball"on Thursday and an event by a similar name set for Friday — the day of Trump's inauguration — the deplorables have made their presence known in the nation's capital.  Read more...

Try not to tear up reading Obama's farewell letter to America

Thursday Jan 19th 2017

Obama signed out on his last full day in office Thursday with an eloquent thank you to the American public, in a short note whose eloquence contrasted sharply with the rhetoric of his successor.

Pausing to reflect on the people he's met during his eight years in office, Obama insisted in the humble missive that "all that I've learned in my time in office, I've learned from you."

'Overwatch but with Cats' is the only YouTube you need

Thursday Jan 19th 2017

It's Overwatch, but they're cats.

So instead of offense heroes McCree, Tracer, Sombra, Reaper, Soldier: 76, Genji, and Pharah ... you get Meowcree, Chaser, Clawmbra, Reapurr, Whisker: 76, Kittenji, and Furrah.

And get this: Furrah's ult is a hailstorm of yarn balls. It's adorable.

The animations — which recreate each's hero's actual highlight intros from Overwatch — are the work of Dillon Gu, a former Rooster Teeth animator and owner of the dillongoo YouTube channel. He nailed the kitty-fied heroes so well that "KatsuWatch" picked up a share from the Overwatch Twitter, which is apparently on fire today. Read more...

Thursday Jan 19th 2017

Oh, nothing. Just the world's most fearless duck, effortlessly out-swimming a tiger.

There aren't many creatures out there willing to take on a predator more than twice their size, but Symbio Wildlife Park's heroic, incredibly annoying duck isn't no ordinary creature.

The pint-sized pest was filmed openly taunting the Australian park's tiger, proving itself a true mastery of trolling as it dipped in and out of the striped killer's range.

These LGBTQ teens have a strong message for Donald Trump

Thursday Jan 19th 2017
