@sahilkapur, on this week’s Us Weekly cover story on Ivanka Trump headlined, “Why I Disagree With My Dad.” Despite the first-person wording, she is not quoted in the story; reporters spoke with anonymous sources close to the president and quoted from old interviews.

Many pointed out that the article seemed to be a puff piece for the first daughter after the magazine was bought by the Trump-friendly National Enquirer in March.

The quote also became a meme about fictional characters who disagree with their dads, like this “Star Wars” reference.
And this “Game of Thrones” reference where Tyrion Lannister is seen actually killing his father.

@owillis, commenting on the internet’s favorite bromance, between Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and former President Barack Obama. The two had dinner in Trudeau’s hometown of Montreal on Tuesday to discuss community outreach, among other things. A photo of the pair, tweeted by Trudeau, left their fans swooning.
This is like looking at a pic of 2 of my exes and wondering why I had to end up with the jerk.

They even brought other world leaders into the fantasy.
The only thing that could make this cooler is if @EmmanuelMacron walked out of kitchen carrying 3 beers!

Eric Trump says Democrats are “not even people.”
Dear Eric Trump: You figured out our secret! We are not people. We are from Krypton (it's not Russian), sent to destroy the evil empire. https://t.co/iCyFD68Au0

@tedlieu, a Democratic member of Congress, reacting to Eric Trump’s interview Tuesday with Fox’s Sean Hannity. Trump condemned attacks against his father’s administration, saying critics, particularly Democrats, are “not even people.”
Some jumped to his defense.

While others were disappointed with his comments.
Come on Eric. This is not a very presidential family stance. Every president has critics. https://t.co/OIrwitINJr

BABADOOK: I'm a terrifying monster that destroys families that try to suppress me.
GAY PEOPLE: Oh my god, SAME. Drinks later?
— Carlos Maza (@gaywonk) June 7, 2017
@gaywonk, on Babadook, the top hat-wearing, drama-loving monster in the 2014 horror movie “The Babadook,” being celebrated as an LGBT icon. The character became an LGBT meme in February thanks to this Tumblr post, but interest has increased recently because June is Pride month.
My favorite thing to come out of the Internet ever is everyone spontaneously deciding the Babadook is a gay icon https://t.co/iwMX1C68GB

Babadook slander will NOT be tolerated in this house. Cinematic masterpiece AND gay icon. Not the ally we wanted but the ally we deserved. pic.twitter.com/iRHyzDT067
