4 CNN Hosts Have A Thoughtful Opinion About Something Complex And Make Me Happy

On CNN this weekend, as police reform protests were going on all over the country, four commentators decided to send a message of solidarity with protesters trying to achieve equal rights in the hands of our justice system.

Margaret Hoover (a Republican who worked in the Bush White House), Sally Kohn, Sunny Hostin, and Mel Robbins had something to say about this weekend's protests. It caused a bit of controversy for reasons that don't surprise me but do annoy me. They didn't dismiss or attack protesters for speaking out. They spoke out with them. I don't think I've ever seen pundits do that.

Seeing a group of opinionated pundits from both sides of the aisle taking an actual shared position on issues that aren't often covered in a way that shows sympathy to victims is awesome. Having pundits behave like actual humans and not like walking talking points for political parties is also awesome. We should reward good behavior. Maybe tweet about it so CNN knows to keep embracing more smart stuff like this? I'll owe you one.

She bought the perfect wedding dress that went viral on TikTok. It was only $3.75.

Lynch is part of a growing crowd of newlyweds going against the regular wedding tradition of spending loads of money.

Making a priceless memory.

At first glance, one might think that Jillian Lynch wore a traditional (read: expensive) dress to her wedding. After all, it did look glamorous on her. But this 32-year-old bride has a secret superpower: thrifting.

Lynch posted her bargain hunt on TikTok, sharing that she had been perusing thrift shops in Ohio for four days in a row, with the actual ceremony being only a month away. Lynch then displays an elegant ivory-colored Camila Coelho dress. Fitting perfectly, still brand new and with the tags on it, no less.

You can find that exact same dress on Revolve for $220. Lynch bought it for only $3.75.

Being married is like being half of a two-headed monster. It's impossible to avoid regular disagreements when you're bound to another person for the rest of your life. Even the perfect marriage (if there was such a thing) would have its daily frustrations. Funnily enough, most fights aren't caused by big decisions but the simple, day-to-day questions, such as "What do you want for dinner?"; "Are we free Friday night?"; and "What movie do you want to see?"

Here are some hilarious tweets that just about every married couple will understand.
