Things We Saw Today: Samantha Bee Launches #SmileforJoe in Honor of Joe Scarborough

During Hillary Clinton’s speech last night, NBC’s Joe Scarborough tweeted at her to “smile. You just had a big night.” Scarborough has given similar directives to male candidates in the past, but there are specific gendered connotations to telling women to smile (the idea that our physical bodies exist solely to appeal to men’s tastes, for example) that he didn’t take into account here.

  • If you’re pining over a Hawkguy/Ant-Man action figure…pine no more. All this needs is a Pizza Dog. (via Toyland)

  • Whose side is Deadpool on in Civil War II? All of them, of course. (via Comic Book Resources)

That’s what we saw! Now it’s your turn?
