36 of the Funniest Tweets from the Week of July 31st
Determined to not let ELon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg monopolize the market of white men fighting each other through a communal midlife crisis, Governors Ron DeSantis and Gavin Newsom have finally agreed to debate one another. The event, tentatively to be hosted by Fox News, will likely set a world record for the amount of times you hear the word “woke” in a debate. Either way, DeSantis and Newsom, who are diametrically opposed politically, have been very vocal about their shared disdain for each other. The debate is unlikely to produce much substance — or very many changed minds — but at least we’ll get some good entertainment and new insults out of it.
Meanwhile, on the picket line there appears to be some movement for the striking writers, as the WGA and the AMPTP had their first meeting since the strike began three months ago. There likely won’t be any immediate resolution, but it’s a hopeful sign for writers everywhere waiting to get paid their due.
Actors, on the other hand, haven’t been back to the negotiating table. But after record-breaking donations from The Rock, Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Reynolds to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, SAG President Fran Drescher says that her union is ready to stay in the streets for at least the next six months fighting the good fight.
And, of course, through it all, we’ve had the funny tweets below, which we will definitely not be calling “posts on X,” or Xeets, no matter what Musk says. If he doesn’t like it, he can fight us and our midlife crisis.
