Forget #Covfefe: Read Breitbart.com! (Updated)

When I originally posted this on May 12, I had read a piece on DailyKos, a Web site I generally distrust, by a woman named AuntieB, who described her experience as a mother who uses SNAP or food stamps.

As the Huffington Post reported, a 25-year-old named Monconjay Brown living in China trolled a troll asking her to sext. She met him via OKCupid.

One woman's post about an engagement ring echoed that she sentiment about what's important in life...and went viral. H/t HillaryDaily.com, although the story is all over the Internet now.
