Democrats Meme'd For Kente Cloth George Floyd Tribute

Frustrated individuals have been protesting all over the country in search of justice for George Floyd and other black victims of racist police departments. There have been numerous vigils and memorial services for both Floyd and Breonna Taylor in recent weeks, and it seems that House Democrats felt they should do something meaningful themselves. Unfortunately, their idea was to don Kente cloth stoles while taking a knee for the 8 minutes and change that Floyd had a knee to the neck - which ultimately killed him. 

The move, which was paired with the announcement of the  "Justice in Policing Act of 2020," has been dismissed by many as a shallow and empty PR display. Other people find it straight up disrespectful, with Obianuju Ekeocha dismissing the use of Kente as a prop in their virtue signalling. But most tweets focus on the absurd hilarity of dems playing dress up. And they're pretty damn funny.

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.

The Democratic Candidates As Broadway Musicals, Because Twitter

Just when we thought that election takes couldn't get any more cringey, Twitter user @rapscallison has raised the bar. Yesterday she nearly broke our timeline when she started a thread designating the remaining democratic candidates as Broadway musicals. While the cringe is kinda real, this will probably appeal to those of you who both follow politics and love musicals. And in our heart of hearts, we have to admit that OP's choices are pretty scary accurate.

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.
