It turns out we were right to be over the moon about legendary Broadway diva Patti LuPone's first tweet last month, because the queen has issued another royal decree.

At first, LuPone tweeted her dismay at the "dumbing down of America," and how it's permeating into theatre with a lack of trained performers. Then—with no apparent correlation—the tweet turned to 2020.

Because she's Patti LuPone and she can segue however the f*ck she wants.

It looks like South Bend Mayor and 2020 presidential contender Pete Buttigieg just might get the LuPone endorsement.

Regardless of their candidate, fans were gagging over the tweet.

People hoped that Buttigieg's husband (and die-hard LuPone fan), Chasten Buttigieg, was sitting down when he read the tweet.

Surprisingly, neither Buttigieg has responded, but we're sure they feel the love.

This isn't the only tweet from the queen that's featured some prime content either. She recently posted about her arrival in St. Louis, Missouri (and a former lover she had there).

She's described her ventures into the world of podcast musicals.

And her night at the Olivier Awards, where she won for her performance in Company!

Twitter has become a much better place with LuPone.

The saying "While the cat's away the mice will play" refers to people taking advantage of the absence of oversight to do as they like. While that is an apt description for what is happening now with the Trump administration using the public's focus on the global pandemic to roll back environmental protections, perhaps a better saying is "The inmates are running the asylum."

In other words, those least capable of running a group or organization are now in charge.

In the face of the public health crisis that's upended daily life in the United States, the historical impeachment trial of President Donald Trump—which ended on February 5—feels like a lifetime ago, despite captivating. a nation as late as last month.

One of the chief criticisms of the Republican party during the proceedings was the claim that Democrats were trying to undo an election that was only months away, out of fear that Trump would be reelected.

As the national health crisis in the United States continues to worsen, New York has quickly become the epicenter of the pandemic in the United States.

New York City alone has over 20,000 confirmed cases of the virus, and the state's death toll skyrocketed by 110% in just 36 hours this week. The urgency is only exacerbated by a shortage of crucial ventilators to combat the respiratory virus.
