Mariah Carey Fans Are Cheering For Taylor Swift For Knocking ‘Despacito’ Out Of #1 And It’s Hilarious

After spending 16 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, tying the all-time record set by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men for their hit song “One Sweet Day,” the summer smash “Despacito” has finally been knocked down to second place. Billboard reported on Tuesday that Taylor Swift’s new song “Look What You Made Me Do” had jumped from its #77th debut spot to #1 in just a week, knocking “Despacito” to second place. Twitter took notice.

Some were just as unamused as this little girl:

She was just trying to nosh on some mac-n-cheese when Snow Felicia walked up. Bye, Ms. White.

Some lumped it in with bigger, sadder news.

Sad way to start the month, indeed. Although Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15th to October 15th, this pain will definitely linger for the next 10 days.

Some were more interested in keeping Mariah Carey’s record intact.

Mariah “Nunez” Carey will be fine, she’s got plenty of records to keep her warm.

People were also reminded that Justin Bieber was on the remix.

Although the “Despacito” music video made it to over 3 billion views without Bieber in it at all, there was a time when he was getting all the praise for helping the song reach #1, even though he couldn’t even really sing it…

It was a good run while it lasted, and though they didn’t surpass “One Sweet Day,” it at least tied, cementing the song’s spot in history.

Feeling the “Despacito” blues? Listen to it being played on two calculators, that should cheer you up.

Jimmy Kimmel Says Trump Rescinding DACA Is Probably To Get Rid Of His Own Kids Who Are The Children Of Immigrants Too

“It seems like his main agenda is to undo everything Obama did – I hope he doesn’t bring Bin Laden back to life…”

Jimmy Kimmel, like most late night comedy hosts, has been roasting Donald Trump and his administration’s policy changes, political scandals, and moral blunders since the beginning of his presidency. But rescinding DACA is a lower blow than Trump claimed he was capable of. On many occasions, he said that DACA was a sensitive issue for him, promising he would treat dreamers with “great heart” and saying that “they shouldn’t be very worried.” Earlier this week, however, that all seemed to go down the drain when he made his Attorney General Jeff Sessions announce that the Trump administration would be rescinding DACA. Kimmel’s impression on why Trump chose this very moment to end DACA is pretty spot on, saying:

“Our president woke up and asked his staff ‘Now that this hurricane is over what’s something horrible I can do to distract people from the Russia investigation?’ Someone said, ‘You know, there are 800,000 innocent kids you could deport for no good reason,” and he said, ‘Done. And done.'”

Kimmel then reminds everyone that Trump’s children were born out of his marriages to immigrants. He then tosses to a video PSA about protecting the children of immigrants. You know, like all the Trump kids are.

It’s pretty funny if you can forget for a moment that actual people are in danger if Congress doesn’t do something in the next six months .
