Today, Beyoncé announced that she is pregnant. In fact, she’s pregnant with twins!
The news overtook pretty much everything this afternoon. It even took attention away from Sean Spicer‘s briefing at the White House, which happened moments after the announcement dropped.
Somebody better hand a note to Spicer about Beyonce

In light of everything that’s been going on in the news, a little levity felt much-needed and was celebrated in national newsrooms…
Sean Spicer is–nevermind BEYONCE IS HAVING TWINS

I’m glad the Democrats ended their obstructionism and finally allowed the Senate to confirm that Beyoncé was pregnant with twins

Beyonce’s twins are actually already co-Presidents, but only if you have a subscription to Tidal

You guys…Donald Trump was elected President 12 weeks ago. Beyoncé literally conceived these twins to give America something to live for.
