Video: Kid Confronts Mom Over Belief That Antifa Stormed The Capitol

Rumors of Antifa being behind the January 6th storming of the capitol began almost as quickly as the Pro-Trump rally turned into an insurrection. Many far right conservatives and MAGA gangs seemed to immediately pass the blame to the anti-fascist group - much as they claimed Antifa was behind the BLM protests. Even though the FBI was quick to debunk the rumors, it seems that many followers of right-leaning mainstream media are still eager to deflect blame and weave more conspiratorial drama. 

While some of these believers will continue to swim in their seas of confirmation bias, others are apparently grapping with family members who won't stand for the BS. This viral video, in which a kid puts their mom on blast for her insistence that MAGA did no wrong, is a pretty great example of the latter. While it doesn't seem like they've changed their mom's mind, it's pretty entertaining to see mom struggle to explain something that's completely false. The reactions ain't bad either.

40 Memes With The Healing Power Of Humor

Twitter Roasts Everyone Who Thought 'Via Getty' Was A Real Name

It's only day eight of 2021 and we've already seen maybe one of the dumbest news weeks in US history...and it's still unfolding! As you've probably heard, the Capitol Building in Washington DC was breached on Wednesday by a mob of Trump supporters, one of whom was caught in a photo running off with a US House lectern. Journalist @RyanLizza tweeted the image and cited Getty Images as the source, which caused a lot of unexpected confusion. Many people retweeted the image and called for the arrest of 'Via Getty.' @RyanLizza eventually had to clarify that the man's name is not, in fact, Via Getty, but by then it was too late. The mistake had already gone viral and jokes about Via Getty are still flooding Twitter. We've collected some hilarious reactions to the priceless Twitter gaff that will surely be remembered for a long, long time.

Twitter Thread Roasts The Capitol's Apparent Lack Of Security

The absolute mayhem at the Capitol yesterday has been on everyone's mind for the last 24 hours. It was scary. It was volatile. People died. Politicians are comparing the attack on democracy to memorable events like Pearl Harbor. Pundits are scrutinizing the actions of both sides, and everyone's realizing that 2021 ain't looking so sweet. While it's all very overwhelming, we do take solace in the fact that Twitter is able to take even situations like yesterday's insurrection and turn it into something funny. And that's exactly what @itsmeRachie did by asking the site to name a place with tighter security than the Capitol. Given the laughable lack of security (or perhaps competent security), the thread prompted scads of amusing jokes, with punchlines that not only cover places (Walmart, CVS) but objects that are famously tough to get into, like plastic cake boxes and clamshell packaging. The thread quickly went viral, and is still growing both in strength and hilarity. We put together some of our favorite responses, but by the time you read this we're sure there'll be more gold where these tweets came from.

35 Memes & Reactions To The Storming Of The Capitol

Okay, so 2021 isn't quite the fresh start Americans had hoped for, but right-wing insurrection and a literal siege of the US Capitol in the first week of January is a bit extra. Most impressive was the rate at which memes, tweets, Instagram stories, and TikToks were flooding the internet as the storming of the Capitol was still unfolding. Perhaps this says something about society, but we won't go there. Let's just stick to what we know best—memes. And if you're appalled because it seems like we're making light of a dire situation, you can kindly look the other way. Some of us are so jaded that all we can do right now is laugh and cry at the same time.
