Well, the President is Doing .GIFs Right (………?)

I am so irritated that I only have 2.5 minutes to write this post (having a job, amirite), because this is very interesting —— and piggybacks in all kinds of ways onto my earlier post about Obama’s “Between Two Ferns” appearance. Basically: the Obama Administration can internet, at least the 26-32 year-old staffers they employ can. And it’s crazy to see The State be like, “oh, is this how the kids are communicating now? Ok then!” -and subsequently post a YOLO joke and Tumblr-bait cash cat in space, to a federal website.
I have so much more to say about this, but I’ll leave you with ——— good god Lemon, when I first started dipping my toes into this space in 2008 I never, NEVER would have guessed that this would be where things ended up. I’m not saying that’s a good thing or a bad thing, just that it’s an interesting thing.
