@ekcranley, tweeting about New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon ordering a cinnamon raisin bagel topped with lox, cream cheese, onions, tomato and capers. The combo left incredulous New Yorkers confused as to why the former actress would pair raisins with smoked fish. Nixon later defended her order, saying, “I mean, it’s not uncooked oatmeal.”
@mrl_216, slamming President Trump for the way he approached the 9/11 memorial in Shanksville, Pa., which honors the passengers of Flight 93. As Trump greeted a group of supporters, he put his hands into the air and fist-pumped. The enthusiastic gesture was widely panned as inappropriate for the solemn occasion.
@Danny_Heifetz, tweeting about the facial expressions of Matt Patricia, head coach of the Detroit Lions, after the team lost 48-17 to the New York Jets on Monday. Throughout the game, Patricia seemed equal parts agitated and exasperated, as the Jets scored 20 seconds in and Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw four interceptions.
@srtalmadge, reacting to Paul McCartney’s interview with GQ. McCartney told a number of incredible stories about his life and The Beatles, including his first (and only) acid trip, how he thinks John Lennon would have been “all over” Auto-Tune — and an odd recounting of The Beatles’ sex lives during their early days of fame.
@chikiguna, discussing Australian cartoonist Mark Knight’s take on Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka, in which Williams appears overly muscular with large lips, echoing stereotypes about black women. Osaka, who is biracial, is shown as a white woman. Knight deactivated his social media accounts Tuesday.
