The “Massive Ordnance Air Blast” bomb being dropped on ISIS caves Afghanistan caused a tear in the space-time continuum on Thursday, which sent the universe tumbling to a violent end. At least that’s what it seemed like from reading some outlets.

Here are five scorching hot takes I ran across after news of the MOAB hit the wires, and this list is not comprehensive:

4) The Los Angeles Times initially reported it was “not immediately clear” why a bomb of this magnitude was used on a group of terrorists a certain former president once dubbed the “JV squad”:

5) Last but not least, an education consultant who writes for “Inside Higher Ed,” emphasis on “high” apparently:


Job offers from Mother Jones and MSNBC incoming!
