Internet on fire

Ministry of Information

So it was a week that saw the #FreeMelania hashtag trend, Kellyanne “alternate facts” Conway punch out a guy at an inaugural ball, and former Mexican president Vicente Fox tweet the F-bomb to Trump. Also the resistance being led by TeenVogue, Merriam Webster dictionary, and Badlands national park.

So what did Wikipedia do? Vandalize, as usual.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer had his Wikipedia photo replaced with a photo of Baghdad Bob (Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf ) of Saddam Hussein’s Ministry of Information. Al-Sahhaf might have had something though, his prophecies have largely come true.  For a brief time, Spicer’s Wikipedia article also described him as “the first troll to serve in the role”.
