Former Clerk Shares Wholesome Story Of RBG & Fantasy Baseball 'Trash Talk'

It was a somber weekend for much of the United States after the news of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death broke on Friday. The 87 year old judge was a champion for women's rights, and had become somewhat of a cult figure in recent years. Many devotees shared somber, wordy, and often beautiful tributes to their hero, highlighting her accomplishments and struggles as a woman in politics. But it's a warm and silly Twitter thread from one of Ginsburg's former clerks, Scott Hershovitz, that really made us feel something. 

The thread, which involves some "friendly" fantasy baseball competition, shows a side of RBG that's a little more personal than most. A quiet but feisty mischief that we assume only those closest to her were privy to witness. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. 

Funny and sweet twitter thread from scott hershovitz about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and fantasy baseball | Scott Hershovitz @shershovitz Today happy RBG memory time talked her into talking trash OT06 clerks had fantasy baseball league. Some chambers had teams. Some individual clerks did. And Justice Alito wanted team himself, not his clerks. 1/11 | last week term Ginsburg clerks were matched against Alito's team. RBG on losing end lot term. Not this time destroyed him: 10-0.

Trump's 'Exploding Trees' Comment Has Memers Trolling Like Crazy

As wildfires continue to ravage the West Coast, President Trump has been quick to dismiss climate change as one of the root causes, stating that countries in Europe like Austria don't suffer from wildfires because Europeans live in "forest cities" that are "managed better" yet are "more explosive" than the trees in California.

We're not entirely sure what any of that means, and apparently neither do memers, so please enjoy the following memes about "forest cities" in Austria.

Seattle's Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone Is Inspiring Tons Of Memes

It's been four days since Seattle activists established the 'Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone' in a six block region of the city. The area, also being called "CHAZ," has declared itself separate from the United State government. CHAZ was created after police fled the George Floyd protests, and protesters were quick to create large barricades, restrooms, food and water distribution, and even disabled security cameras. There's also a smoking section intended to protect non-smokers from second-hand smoke.

While the city of Seattle has not officially recognized the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, the area has received a lot of attention from the media and from memers. Many of the memes are mocking in nature - especially regarding current attempts at farming in the area. We'll avoid taking sides, and instead will present you with content from people who pro-CHAZ and others who are very clearly against the movement.

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.
