Midterms this year have been intense. We have no idea when politics went all Hunger Games, but wow. Florida is a mess, Nevada elected a dead person, Democrats took the house, and history-making appointments are happening everywhere. On top of all of this, Trump forced the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The resignation - which Sessions acknowledged was something Trump asked for - could be just the thing to block any investigation into 45. Trump thanked Sessions for his service and appointed an acting Attorney General, saying a permanent replacement for Sessions would be elected "later" - a move plenty of people believe was unconstitutional. It's possible that Sessions' removal could trigger all sorts of political upheaval.
But we know what Twitter really cares about - and what you're here for - the jokes. So many jokes. So here, for your entertainment and to keep your mind off of the political apocalypse we're not-so-gently leaning on, we present a sampling of some of Twitter's finest trash-talking.
Elf Jokes? Psh you better believe we got Elf jokes.
