    Memed Into the Public Domain? The Battle for Pepe the Frog.

Pepe as he’s known has been labelled a Nazi, condemned by a presidential candidate and now is at the center of an important legal battle over the first amendment in this era of unlimited replication, imitation and mutation.

    Fox & Friends Can’t Say SERVER | The Daily Show

    The password is: server. What brought things different… Changed the component was that the conversation the president had was stored in a super secret separate computer. And that’s where they put the Putin conversation, which was a couple of days later, and I believe a Saudi Arabian leader conversation as well.
