To the most precious people in this world, ARMYs. Thank you for always being by our side and for always protecting us with your many cheers and love and thank you for making (us) full of purple. Thank you for allowing us to receive this kind of big award. Even though (ARMYs) received this (award) as well, thank you for sincerely congratulating us and thank you so much for saying “I love Bangtan.” I love you!!💜💜💜
[T/N: During the second day of Muster, Taehyung said in his ending ment (after seeing the purple ARMY bomb ocean project) that purple means to trust and love each other for a long time. He made that meaning up himself ^^]

These are all the best reactions to that eerily Twin-Peaks-esque photo of Mitt Romney dining with Donald Trump on Tuesday

One potential snag? The pair has some ugly history. A photo snapped by press covering the encounter appeared to make that painfully obvious. But hey, these two are trying! (Sort of?) The New York Times even called it an “awkward courtship," which is sort of putting it mildly.

Props to Trevor Noah though for putting up with a mountain of cognitive dissonance. 

“[Blaming both sides] is a remarkable phenomenon in which the victim and his tormentor become transfixed on the same scale of moral culpability. Through this process, the former becomes stigmatized; the latter absolved. […] Throughout history, [blaming both sides] has long served oppressors and their defenders as politically correct pretense to deflect responsibility and blame. For far too many others, it is simply a convenient crutch to cop out of confrontation and remain apathetic. On the choice between supporting the oppressed or excusing and enabling their oppressors, I choose the former.”
