Everybody Is Going Out To McDonald's Except Mitt Romney

News
Happy Friday, everyone! Isn't it great when we as Americans are friends with gay people and immigrants and Saudi Arabia? We should throw a party and all hang out together! But shhh don't invite Mitt. He's too busy giving speeches in Michigan. Also, he's lame.

  • Obama's big announcements about gay marriage and immigration continually make Mitt Romney look bad. Hmm, is that because the Republican stance on social issues is incredibly narrow-minded and based on the idea that if it is someone's "preference" to deny civil rights or denigrate immigrants who came here as children? No, it must be Obama's charm and celebrity supporters. [Slate]
  • Do you feel safe knowing that the US and Saudi Arabia are friends? Muslims around the world certainly don't. They're all like, "Uh guys? They don't let the women do anything fun, like drive or play sports or vote." But it's okay, because oil. [Salon]
  • What do you think of Elizabeth Warren as a possible successor to President Obama? The Democrats seem excited about her, although we know how nitpicky they can be. [The Atlantic]
  • Finally, in an almost literal "this is how we make the sausage" move, McDonald's releases a video showing why a Quarter Pounder doesn't look like it does in the ads. It's really weird, because they use palette knives and special grills and Photoshop, but they're like "we HAVE to do this because of the box and how pictures are 2-D and sometimes the bun has holes and that isn't pretty," but...but they're using Photoshop! On food! Well, the best thing about this video is the marketing woman's Canadian accent. [NPR]

Donald Trump held one of his televised cabinet meetings today in which he railed about the terrible Democrats who forced the current border crisis (at a time when illegal border crossings are actually lower than usual). In what's sure to be his favorite phrase on Twitter for the next few days, Trump blamed "extremist open-border Democrats" for all the problems he brought on himself with his family separation policy, and explained that Democrats were simultaneously hurting illegal immigrants AND the rest of America by forcing Normal America to accept Central Americans who fled to the US. It made loads of sense! And then things got ... less so.
