As reported at Twitchy, trending at No.1 on Twitter last Friday night was a handy guide to knowing if #YouJustPulledAnObama. The hashtag remained in the top 10 trending topics through Saturday night, as more and more tweeters picked up on the meme, using it to slam the president without mercy.

The beauty within – food for thought
Have you seen this video ad presented by a complexion soap company? Nearly two million have viewed the six-part series featuring an FBI-trained, former police forensic artist whose sketches reveal something to his subjects they didn’t know about themselves. The short videos are a fascinating and emotional look at how we view ourselves.
