The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Feb. 16
Who else felt like today just had to be Friday? Unfortunately, the start of the Presidents' Day long weekend isn't here just yet (sigh), but at least we only have one day to go. Soon enough, we'll all be taking that extra day off to sleep in and order takeout — uh, I mean wake up early, work out, and change the world, because that's what we're all totally gonna do, right?
Oh, well. Before settling in for a nice long weekend, read on for a recap of the news and events that caught Bustle's editors' attention today, Feb. 16.
Donald Trump + That Press Conference
Oh, man. Where to even start? On Thursday afternoon, Trump held a press conference to discuss his new nominee for Labor Secretary, and — surprise, surprise — things quickly veered off track. From the president's thoughts on fake news to his conversation with reporter April Ryan, these quotes from Trump's press conference sum up the ridiculous hour of "news."
Meme Alert: By now, you've probably seen those "Ivanka Trump is thirsty AF" memes about her meeting with Justin Trudeau. But let's all stop with that, OK? Women's listening faces are assumed to be looks of infatuation all too often, and those memes are actually pretty sexist.
American Horror Story + The 2016 Election
Well, it was only a matter of time. The theme for American Horror Story Season 7 has been announced, and it's... the 2016 presidential election. Yes, Ryan Murphy's horror show will take on Trump vs. Clinton, and while other details are unknown, you know you want to tune in to see this.
A Day Without Immigrants + What It's Like
On Thursday, many businesses across the country closed in protest of Trump's immigration policies, with others staying open but donating portions of their proceeds towards immigration-focused nonprofits. It's an important movement that'll surely send a strong message to those in favor of things like the immigration ban, and these photos of the "Day Without Immigrants" from social media are so powerful.
