Well known for their neutrality and lack of political agenda, the Huffington Post recently reported on a new hashtag sweeping through twitter: the #BringBackObama hashtag, which, in defiance of 22nd Amendment, seeks to "Bring Back Obama" to the presidency. Peruse this article which neutrally features genuine tweets of this topic that have been scientifically proven to actually exist.

When you won't write articles about shit that matters, so you just publish salt.

Most newspapers are basically blogs in this day and age anyways, where they have to satisfy a certain demographic's biases in order to get ratings to make money. Classic journalism is dead because people don't want it, they find it far more boring than watching some late night shows wrapping the same stuff in comedy. It's just the way things are.

If you want to get real news, read a scientific journal. As in journals with citations and preferable somehow related to math, because AHOs don't respond well to math, and thus you'd know you're reading something someone actually bothered to put a lot of work into for once.

Actually, the 22nd Amendment prohibits three terms in succession (like the Trump supporters, now reduced to simply trolling Democrats, claim with "Trump in '24!")
Although the Amendment was passed after FDR, so it was unable to rule on the question of Grover Cleveland being separately popular-elected as the 22nd and 24th president, after Benjamin Harrison dropped the ball as #23.

(Generally speaking, two terms as president, and you're not in much CONDITION for a third--No one ever came out of eight years in the White House with the black hair he went in with.
That said, I would've voted for Bill Clinton again in a heartbeat after he stole the show at Obama's '12 convention )

>Wanting more than 2 terms for a president
I mean, it has a practical purpose in the case of a major war, but other than that, the possible negatives outweigh the positives.

Seems like a less absurd hashtag than #FakeNews to dismiss all real news as non-existent.

Do you generally browse HuffPost looking to get outraged?

In general, I don't browse HuffPost. This was rare happenstance.

Yeah, I know, but wouldn't saying that ruin flow of my prose? This is art, man.

HuffPost does. Their article was encouraging Nostalgia. They're the new Pepperidge Farms.
