Despite all of the time we spend on Twitter instead of doing our jobs — we’re just like Elon Musk! — we don’t report on most of the trending topics. That’s because the Twittersphere gets really fired up about something related to politics or sports or someone having a nice afternoon with their partner for maybe 24 hours and then it goes the way of the dodo.
This whole Speaker of the House situation? Not so much. But, now there are too many funny Speaker of the House memes and tweets not to share them.
Like the rest of you, we thought the GOP voting on a new Speaker of the House to replace Nancy Pelosi would be quick. Well, turns out we were also wrong. Democrats really don’t want Republican conference leader Kevin McCarthy as Speaker, so they’re voting for Hakeem Jeffries instead.
Meanwhile, some Republicans don’t want McCarthy either, so there’s been an increasingly comedic list of alternatives and nonsense moments on the floor. (At one point Donald Trump was added to the ballot. The only person who voted for him was Matt Gaetz.)
Voting started on Tuesday, January 3rd. And, as of press time, Congress is on their 13th ballot to vote for a Speaker. Do they know it’s Friday?
