Andrew Yang Roasted For Picking Times Square As His Favorite Subway Station

The internet hasn't been kind to Andrew Yang of late. But it's really his own fault. The failed presidential candidate turned New York mayoral candidate has been gunning for the approval of the city's residents. It's normal for candidates to suck up to voters, but if you ask New Yorkers, most of them will say he's been doing it wrong.

His first New York-related offense? Calling a bougie Midtown deli a bodega. For those who aren't aware, a bodega is the city's version of a convenience/corner store. They're not shining delicatessens filled with matcha and gleaming glass. Most of them have boast cats, cheap beer and sandwiches, and are run by locals from Yemen, the Dominican Republic, or Puerto Rico. 

He's also managed to receive scorn for giving away the family dog, being much, much worse at basketball than Adam Sandler,and alienating Muslim residents with some seriously short-sighted comments about the war in Israel. Today, however, the internet is up in arms over the third episode of Ziwe's satirical interview show on Showtime. In the episode, Ziwe chats with Yang about billionaires, race, politics, music - and his favorite New York City subway station. Unfortunately for Yang, he chose the station closest to his home: Times Square. 

Anyone who knows anything about New Yorkers should know that many of us would rather die that find ourselves even blocks away from the tourist trap filled with wide-eyed out of towners, chain restaurants, and a serious lack of public restrooms. To natives or longtime residents, Yang's choice was more proof that he's out of touch with the city. And, as usual, New Yorkers on Twitter had a lot to say about the matter.

Andrew Yang Gets Dragged On Twitter For Mistaking Regular Store For Bodega

Andrew Yang has taken to the streets of NYC since the announcement of his 2021 mayoral campaign. His first stop was a spacious, pristine, well-lit convenience store that he featured in a video about supporting local bodegas. Anyone who lives in NYC knows that bodega discourse is a contentious subject for New Yorkers, and so it is unsurprising that Yang's message was completely eclipsed by the fact that he was not, in fact, in a bodega. 

The bodega warriors of Twitter wasted no time roasting Yang for the faux pas. Many tweeted photos of Whole Foods and CVS with the caption, 'on my way to my local bodega!' Sorry Yang, but no one wins in the bodega wars. We've collected some of the funniest reactions to Yang's viral Twitter video.

Writer Imagines Dates With Democratic Presidential Candidates

Twitter is unsurprisingly abuzz with a lot of hot political takes this primary season, but some people are having more fun with the content than others. Writer Nicole Najafi is proof. On Saturday, Najafi shared nine imaginary dates with the most popular democratic presidential candidates, and most of them are delightfully amusing - and in our opinion, pretty damn accurate. Of course Michael Bloomberg would find a way to work in some Spanish. We've included Najafi's dates in this gallery, but you can take in the whole damn thread right here.

Andrew Yang Memes To Commemorate His Dropping Out

Last night was a big win for Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire, but it was a sad day for the Yang Gang. Andrew Yang announced that he was dropping out of the presidential race. He spoke to his followers in Manchester explaining his rationale:

"While there is great work left to be done, you know I am the math guy, and it is clear tonight from the numbers that we are not going to win this race, I am not someone who wants to accept donations and support in a race that we will not win. And so, tonight I am announcing I am suspending my campaign for president."

It's a move than many are calling mature - and one that anyone who has been donating to candidates can respect. While some people may be mourning the loss of Yang's proposed Universal Basic Income, we're still basking in the memes this math maniac inspired. And here's a few of 'em to help us see him out.

Big-Brain Versions Of Democratic Candidates Up The Debate's Funny Factor

Instagram user @bringbackdialup discovered one way to make the Democratic debate last night a bit more bearable. In a multi-photo upload to the image sharing site, he shared that "If you put your phone really close to the top of your tv and tilt it down all these candidates look really big brained." The resulting images of presidential hopefuls such as Bernie Sanders and Andrew Yang are absolutely ridiculous, but a welcome laugh for people suffering from election and general political fatigue.
