7 Of The Most WTF Moments Of The 2016 Election

No matter your political ideology, I think we can all agree that the 2016 U.S. presidential election has been a bit nuts. For starters, if someone had told me two years ago that Trump would be the Republican nominee, I would have laughed. This is really no ordinary election and there have been several times where I've just paused and thought, "WTF, America?" Here are just seven of the strangest, most ridiculous, most WTF moments of this election:

1) Trump talking about the size of his "hands"

Let's remember that this was an actual quote during a presidential debate. There are dick jokes during presidential debates now. Just let that sink in.

2) Ben Carson trying to quote Stalin in his closing remarks

For starters, I have no idea why you would even quote Stalin in the first place when you're trying to convince people to vote for you. But this was even more ridiculous because it turns out the quote, "if you want to bring America down, you have to undermine three things: our spiritual life, our patriotism and our morality," was never even said by Stalin, and instead originated from a popular conservative meme on Facebook.

3) Hillary Clinton referencing the newStar Wars movie in her closing remarks

We get it, Hillary -- you want millennials to vote for you. But please don't try to win us over by talking about pop culture, because it reminds us of the time we had to teach Grandma how to use twitter.

4) An actual bird interrupting Bernie Sanders' rally

Bernie supporters (myself included) took it as a sign that Mother Nature was endorsing him. It resulted in many great memes and the iconic #birdie2016.

5. When Melania Trump's convention speech was a little too similar to Michelle Obama's

What's even more bizarre is that the Republican National Committee's chief strategist Sean Spiker used My Little Pony to defend the plagiarism.

6. Carly Fiorina falling off the stage at Ted Cruz's rally

This one isn't so much ridiculous because of the fall, but because no one seems to care that she fell. Well, except Heidi Cruz maybe. Maybe.

7. Trump's "We Are the Champions" entrance

First off, does Trump even know anything about Freddie Mercury? Y'know, the bisexual, POC guy who's probably rolling over in his grave right about now? Second, tell me this doesn't remind you of a dystopian novel. Seriously.

It's only August. The games haven't even begun.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
