Trending: Kirk Cousins and the Redskins break up; Left Shark breaks his silence
Redskins say “adios” to Kirk Cousins, NFL fans say “what?”
One day I aspire to be as good at insulting people as the Redskins are at insulting Kirk Cousins
— Pete Blackburn (@PeteBlackburn) January 31, 2018
@PeteBlackburn, reacting after the Redskins agreed to a trade to get quarterback Alex Smith from the Chiefs, and agreed to pay Smith the type of big, long-term money they refused to give Kirk Cousins. Nationals fan favorite Bryce Harper didn’t understand the Redskins’ choice. He tweeted: “Maybe I’m crazy, but how do you get rid of @KirkCousins8? Isn’t he good? Like really good? Just a thought!” Others were quick to point out that Cousins is lucky to get away from the Redskins. “Let’s be honest the winner in the NFL today is Kirk Cousins,” @TheeTedSmith tweeted.

Just so I’m clear: I can have soon-to-be 30 years old Kirk Cousins at ~$27M per year, or I can give up a 3rd-round pick to have soon-to-be 34 years old Alex Smith at $23.5M per year.
Why did Washington do this.

Left Shark breaks his silence.
“So there’s a set choreography. There’s also what’s called free-style choreography, or, like, you get to move around or play your character as a dancer.”
Bryan Gaw, the man behind the famous “Left Shark” in Katy Perry’s 2015 Super Bowl performance. NPR’s “Morning Edition” caught up with him Wednesday, and Gaw explained that he was playing an “underdog” on purpose.
People are really wondering what Melania’s white pantsuit meant.

@RVAwonk, musing on the meaning of the white pantsuit that Melania Trump wore to the State of the Union. People wondered whether it was a nod to Hillary Clinton, or a counter to the Democratic women who wore black in support of #MeToo. Tim Teeman of The Daily Beast wrote that people read “an absurd amount” into what Trump wears because she is such a private person.
1. Melania wore Suit Pants to #sotu
2. She came in another car not from the WH but a hotel in DC.
3. She did not bring Barron
4. She did not stand when Trump talked about Family.
You don’t think she’s silently saying something?

@dominicholden, tweeting about Sen. Bernie Sanders’ slow, unenthusiastic clapping during Tuesday night’s State of the Union. People on social media identified with the feeling, and it quickly became a meme: “Bernie’s clapping like a man who just watched the love of his life walk down the aisle with the dude that cheated on her six times in college,” @porter_larkin tweeted.
Pizza for breakfast is good for you, says one dietician.
Saw the words “pizza” and “breakfast” … you can stop talking now.

@radiodrew, tweeting about the viral headline that pizza is a better breakfast than cereal. Registered dietitian Chelsey Amer told thedailymeal.com that a slice of pizza offers more protein than a bowl of cereal, keeping you full longer. “It’s not that pizza is a healthy breakfast, it’s that cereal is such crap,” @mmoyr weighed in.
Pizza is healthier than breakfast cereal and if this means I can eat more pizza I am all for it. https://t.co/o65BQotYes
