Happy Friday! The 9-5 work week is coming to a halt and soon you will be able to relax and call the shots on your own terms. But first, you must know that Fox News is getting massively trolled, and the memes are top notch.

The most recent wave of backlash comes in response to a tweet and photo posted by Fox News contributor Lawrence Jones III, wherein it looks like he's preparing to enter a war zone. The picture was taken near the border, and was undoubtedly posted to create fear mongering around immigration.

It wasn't long before MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff chimed in to point out the obvious: you don't need a bulletproof vest at the border.


While many asserted he's not wearing a real one, the appearance of the photo feels very intentionally staged as propaganda, and there will undoubtedly be people who believe it's real.

It didn't take long for the photo to get attacked by a fleet of unflattering comparisons, and the explosion is beautiful.

There's even photo documentation suggesting Jones didn't wear the tactical vest after the photo was taken, which just confirms it was all for appearance.

Other reporters also chimed in to share the times they covered the border without need of protective clothing.

But the best responses to the tweet absolutely came in the form of meme'd versions of the photo. This is a true thread full of art.

Whatever you do this weekend, it's safe to assume you'll be getting roasted less than Jones.

Gemma Copeland shared her story on Facebook, which was then picked up by the Facebook page Boobie Babies. Photos show the mom breastfeeding her baby next to the window of the zoo's orangutan habitat, with a female orangutan sitting close to the glass, gazing at them.

"Today I got feeding support from the most unlikely of places, the most surreal moment of my life that had me in tears," Copeland wrote.

She's enjoying the big benefits of some simple life hacks.

James Clear’s landmark book “Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones” has sold more than 9 million copies worldwide. The book is incredibly popular because it has a simple message that can help everyone. We can develop habits that increase our productivity and success by making small changes to our daily routines.

"It is so easy to overestimate the importance of one defining moment and underestimate the value of making small improvements on a daily basis,” James Clear writes. “It is only when looking back 2 or 5 or 10 years later that the value of good habits and the cost of bad ones becomes strikingly apparent.”

His work proves that we don’t need to move mountains to improve ourselves, just get 1% better every day.

Most of us are reluctant to change because breaking old habits and starting new ones can be hard. However, there are a lot of incredibly easy habits we can develop that can add up to monumental changes.
