Things We Saw Today: Michael Moore Tweets About How Women Can’t Be Bad, Gets Served Epic Takedown

Back in October, Michael Moore tweeted about how women had no part in some of the most heinous evils in world history. He presented this tweet as part of an argument that women should take charge, all of which was in support of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Thing is though, Jessica Ellis (hey, great first name), senior weekend editor over at Hello Giggles, wasn’t having any of that pedestal-placing, and came back at him with a thread that’s absolutely worth your time to read.
