What the internet taught us this week… #5


Hey, internet, you’re still caught up on the idea of President Trump, yeah? Well, it doesn’t look like much else has mattered lately⎯unless, of course, it’s about Vice President Joe Biden. This is what the internet taught us this week…


#1: Newspapers around the world reacted with shock, horror, and an impressive amount of creativity to Donald Trump nabbing the U.S. presidency. Le Journal de Québec had a ripper of a headline but it was The Daily Telegraph that gave us the best of the bunch!

#4: And while we’re speaking of Joe Biden, the internet swooned over him and collectively wished it had a time machine.

Twitter user @caaandxce stated that she would text the young Biden at 1.27am, while @MichaelVarrati commented that he would text Biden now for ‘helping pass marriage equality’.

Ensuing comments to the photo ranged from praising Biden to sexually harassing him.
