Anti-Trump flash mob breathes actual life into the #resist hashtag

TwitterFacebook

What do you get when you cross 200 protesters with a Donald Trump-branded golf course?

It’s not a joke; this actually happened, and those 200 protesters hit the dirt at southern California’s Trump National Golf Club to spell out an emphatic statement: “RESIST!”

The group in question is the San Pedro chapter of Indivisible, a nationwide network that formed after the 2016 election. Using the example set by the right-leaning Tea Party in years past, Indivisible works to bring about broader change by inspiring activism at the local level. Read more…

Trump finally tweets (and promptly deletes) a unifying message

TwitterFacebook

President Donald Trump is all about togetherness this weekend.

POTUS woke up, skipped his usual vicious Saturday morning tweetstorm, and instead, waited until the afternoon to tweet a simple, yet powerfully unifying two letters in the form of the word: “We.”

Now, we’re assuming this was an accidental tweet — which Trump, along with his Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, are very familiar with — because the message was promptly deleted.

President Trump has already proven to be truly just so horrible at using the social media platform that this comes as no surprise, but the tweet spoke volumes to Trump’s Twitter followers. Read more…

Martha Stewart, a great content creator, disses Trump’s very bad Twitter

TwitterFacebook

Celebrated lifestyle blogger Martha Stewart knows a thing or two about being consistently delightful, and she was kind enough to offer a few tips to someone who does not — the president.

 “[Twitter]’s used by the president so strangely,” she told Buzzfeed. “I don’t think it’s a tool for that kind of information. It was so good for news breaking and for, again, taking the temperature of a conundrum or a challenge or something. I still use it for that.”

Trump’s version of “taking the temperature” is recapping Fox News and broadcasting his own temper tantrums, which Stewart finds incredibly unbecoming. She previously made her feelings towards Trump known on her Instagram account, which has gotten a lot better since her days of posting poorly lit food photos.  Read more…

The parody accounts that make Twitter bearable in the era of Trump

TwitterFacebook

Over the course of his first months in the White House, President Trump notoriously turned Twitter into his personal outlet for unhinged political venting. That of course inspired the creation of dozens of parody accounts that became tools of resistance, coping mechanisms, and light-hearted distractions from the political chaos. 

A simple Twitter search for “Donald Trump Parody” reveals a collection of over 50 accounts, and though each tackles Trump’s presidency with a different approach, they all set out with a common goal: to make Twitter in the Trump era a bit more bearable.

Heineken shows Pepsi the right way to make a politically charged ad

TwitterFacebook

Can’t we all just get along?

That’s been the message of dozens of commercials since the United States elected Donald Trump and the United Kingdom opted for a Brexit, but none have really sold the message like Heineken’s latest ad.

The spot, which was hailed as an antidote to Pepsi’s disaster of a political message earlier this month, features a social experiment involving three isolated pairs of ordinary UK citizens with opposing beliefs.

The participants are said to be unaware of the purpose of the test, and they have no knowledge of their political differences, which include views on feminism, transgender rights, and climate change. Read more…

Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey resurfaces, refutes Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak comments

TwitterFacebook

The founder of Oculus, Palmer Luckey, quietly slipped back onto the public stage this week after a tumultuous year that ended with his departure from Facebook in March. 

First, Luckey appeared on Twitter on Wednesday, after months of silence, using a telling new bio image instead of his own face: Obi-Wan Kenobi, the mysterious, sometimes misunderstood Jedi in Star Wars who fights for the good side of The Force.  

It was his first Twitter post since the one back in September, in which he apologized for his actions related to a political action group producing anti-Hillary Clinton pro-Donald Trump content.  Read more…
