#Headlinesfor2017 is a popular hashtag on Twitter that people use to make predictions about what will happen in 2017. Some are funny little jabs while some are more serious. But most have to do with the recent election and President-Elect Donald Trump.
@nia4_Trump tweets: “Liberalism is a Mental Disease #Headlinesfor2017 In related news, liberals can finally afford health insurance #MAGA”. The image’s breaking news subtitle reads “CDC officially declares: Liberalism is a Mental Disease.”
@renomarky tweets “#Headlinesfor2017 @CNN completely irrelevant!” With a simple black image with the CNN logo saying “Your blackout is permanent.”
The Nasty Woman movement was started after Donald Trump referred to Hillary Clinton as a nasty woman. Women all over the country started embracing this title, creating t-shirts, and even campaigning proudly with the title across their chest. @KattFunny speculates “#Headlinesfor2017 Most popular girls’ name of 2017: Nasty.”
Donald Trump and Twitter
Donald Trump is known for taking to Twitter whenever he had an opinion to share, before winning the election and even after as President-Elect Donald Trump. This tweet touches on that: “Trump delivers ENTIRE State of the Union address via Twitter, condenses message to three Tweets. #Headlinesfor2017”
People who are against Donald Trump are concerned with his usage of Twitter and how Tweeting will play into the presidency and confidential information. @politictea tweets “Instead of carpet bombing Trump send out tweet storm telling ISIS to ‘Stop it!’ #Headlinesfor2017”
I’m With Stupid
Another political headline in the #Headlinesfor2017 roundup: “Canada buys giant ‘I’m with stupid’ t-shirt.”
Most of the #Headlinesfor2017 are political ones, but if you search hard you can find a few gems that have nothing to do with politics, the election, the White House, or Donald Trump and family.
“America made healthy again: doctors consults down by 20 million in 2017 #Headlinesfor2017” @vermeji_ tweets that Americans will take a strong turn towards health and not need as many doctor’s visits in 2017.
“Gluten declared to be new super food #Headlinesfor2017” is a funny jab at all the “super foods” that have been discovered in recent years. The same user Tweeted another good one:
“Twitter announces ban on cat gifs #Headlinesfor2017” Cat memes have been popular for many years and haven’t really seen a decline. They just seem to get more funny as the years pass. A world without cat memes is a world many people wouldn’t want to live in.
Even Groundhogs Get Divorced
@SeanMODonnell1 tweeted “#HeadlinesFor2017 Punxsutawaney Phil loses shardo to Mrs. Phil in landmark celebrity divorce settlement…” Just a little fun tweet discussing the popular groundhog who has his own day and can predict the weather. No big deal.
These #Headlinesfor2017 have gone viral and are good indicators of how Americans feel about the current state of things. The majority of them make fun of Donald Trump and his family in one way or another, whether it’s his demeanor, his actions, or his wealth. A small minority are on the other side of the fence, poking fun at the liberals and suggesting that their feelings are hurt over the election results, which is how #Headlinesfor2017 started in the first place.
No matter how or when #Headlinesfor2017 started, hopefully, they are no indicator of how 2017 will actually go. There are some creative suggestions and you may agree with quite a lot of them that you find. Whether anything predicted actually happens or not, hopefully, many people will just find these all in good fun and enjoy crafting creative headlines about made-up situations.
