the year that was 2016

Let’s look at the year that was 2016

2016 isn’t even over and we already know it has been One Of Those Years. Let’s take a trip down memory lane through videos, gifs and memes.

1.This kid is all of us and the dustbin is 2016 

2. Two words: Donald Trump

Very few people thought he was actually going to win. He just said whatever he wanted to and then denied it. Screenshots are forever. The Donald is even trolling on Twitter now that he is the president elect. WTF.

And like Tina Fey’s portrayal of Sara Palin, Alec Baldwin nails Donald Trump. At least we will have that to look forward to for the next four years.


3. The Hodor moment in Game of Thrones 

Cue a song of fire and ice. This was an insane moment in Game of Thrones.
