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.

President Donald Trump's reaction to white supremacists and neo-Nazis in the aftermath of the Charlottesville riots hasn't been forgotten, even two years later.

The President infamously asserted that there were "very fine people on both sides" at the Unite the Right rally, where white supremacists protested the removal of a confederate statue. The ensuing violence resulted in the murder of counter-protestor Heather Heyer.

The Senate is gearing up for a historic impeachment trial against President Donald Trump, who withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine on the condition that its leaders announce investigations against his political opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.

Amendment 4—a Florida referendum restoring voting rights to former felons—passed in 2018 with 65% of the vote, paving the way for an additional 1.4 million voters in the swing state.

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis immediately took steps to undermine the public will by signing into law a bill that would only restore voting rights to felons who fully pay all fees and fines imposed after leaving prison.

Under Florida law, court debts left unpaid after three months are referred to private debt collectors, who can then tack on a surcharge of up to 40%.
