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.

Beto O'Rourke Got Roasted On Twitter For Speaking Spanish Last Night

Last night was the First Democratic Debate, featuring Beto O'Rourke, Bill Deblasio, Julián Castro, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, Jay Inslee, John Delaney, and Tim Ryan. While the first debates tend to say a whole lot of nothing about who will win the favor of the people, Beto O'Rourke was quick shoo-in for most meme-able candidate. At the very beginning of the debate, O'Rourke was asked a question about the economy, and he opted to give a non-answer in both English and Spanish. The move puzzled his opponents (Namely Booker and Warren) and viewers alike. It didn't take long for people on Twitter to roast the Texan's his attempt at a bilingual answer. Here are some of our favorite spicy jabs.

The Newark City Council was meeting to nominate a replacement for a member that gave up his seat after being elected to congress. Mayor Cory Booker wanted to nominate Shanique Davis Speight. His opponents wanted to nominate John James, the son of the former Newark mayor that Booker defeated in 2006. When a councilman supporting James was not recognized by the chair, he and three other council-members walked out in protest.

This left the council without a quorum, which allows the mayor to sit in and cast votes. Booker cast the deciding vote in Speight's favor. Residents began chanting "Cory's gotta go." When Speight was about to be sworn in, they stormed the dais and had to be pushed back by police.
