- So, what happened this week? Donald Trump was rebuked by the VFW, President Obama tried to rewrite history, the Obama administration tried to explain away a $400 million ransom paid to Iran, the media continued to fawn over Hillary Clinton, and gun grabbers were very upset about Ginny Thrasher winning a gold medal.
- Other stuff happened too, but it either wasn't very interesting or I was just too busy wishing that this election wasn't such a slow-motion car wreck to notice. Without further ado, here are my picks for best tweets of the week:

- — Harold Stickeehands (@StickeeNotes)Mon, Aug 01 2016 21:54:33Hillary's approach to attacking Trump is smart. She's using sympathetic outsiders to criticize Trump & letting his personality do the rest
- — Kilgore Trout (@Beer__Wolf)Mon, Aug 01 2016 16:38:07I didn't even know the VFW could be lost. I'm serious. It never occurred to me someone would do something so stupid to get them riled up.
