This is a baby we’re talking about. A BABY.

@calvinmccrimon4, blasting supporters of the former BBC DJ. Baker was fired Thursday after tweeting a photo of a couple holding hands with a chimpanzee that he captioned, “Royal baby leaves hospital.” The image appeared to be a racist reference to Archie, the first child of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Meghan is biracial and has been the target of racist smears from some U.K. outlets.

I don’t even want to give him points for branding because honestly, did anyone even remember this?

@twilgaming, criticizing a shirt sold by the senator’s campaign. Don Blankenship coined the “Cocaine Mitch” moniker in a campaign ad during his failed Senate run from West Virginia last year, referencing questionable reports that McConnell’s father-in-law’s shipping company was once involved in smuggling cocaine. Many found the shirt in poor taste.

Ron Swanson would approve.

@HoolieLulu, tweeting about a man who appeared to have ordered a serving of 10 eggs at a Milwaukee, Wis., diner in a Wednesday segment of “Fox & Friends.” However, many noticed the same helping appeared in shots of different diners, leading viewers to believe it was a prop.

Ah yes, my baseball rivals, the Red Socks!!!

@chrisinroch, joking about the White House misspelling the name of the World Series champions ahead of the team’s Thursday visit. In a now-corrected website announcement, the White House referred to the Boston baseball franchise as the “Red Socks.” The correct spelling is “Red Sox.”

THEY MADE A DEAL, JESSE! A DEAL!

@darth, replying to @JesseNeon’s complaint that his dog, Brick, had struck up a deal with a bear in his neighborhood. @JesseNeon said Brick’s job is to bark and keep animals — like bears — away. However, this bear and Brick seem to have an arrangement: Brick lets the bear raid the trash, and the bear gives him deer bones in return.
