So are Trump and Zinke going to refund me for a life’s worth of buying presents?
@brassman66, joking after Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke introduced President Trump as “the man who brought Christmas back to America” at the National Christmas Tree Lighting on Wednesday. Zinke made a similar comment at last year’s ceremony, calling Trump “the man who brought ‘Merry Christmas!’ back to our nation’s capital.” As HuffPost pointed out, though, neither the holiday nor its accompanying greeting has ever left.

Jordan after tweeting a photoshopped picture of herself with the actor along with a joking story about how they met over the summer and lost touch.

@ThatsWutZSaid, tweeting about Netflix’s announcement that it will be producing a live-action remake of the beloved anime series “Cowboy Bebop.” Anime fans weren’t thrilled by the news, since the writers of the new show are mostly white men, and fans fear that Netflix will also whitewash the cast as it did with its live-action version of the manga series “Death Note.”
And finally — of course, Kawhi Leonard is putting his stake in New Balance.
@MetalfaceJAE, discussing the announcement that the Toronto Raptors forward signed a multiyear endorsement deal with New Balance, after not extending his contract with Jordan Brand. Fans found Leonard’s move to New Balance — often joked about as being for middle-aged dads — to be a perfect fit for the expressionless player.
