What Emojis Should Represent Politicians & the News Media - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 4/10/15

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Transcript (may appear different than audio recording):

So Apple has released an update to iOS 8 that includes new emojis. After reading about the update, it made me wonder what could be some of the emojis for politicians and the media if Apple ever made a political category. Well, of course I came up with a list of possible emojis Apple should consider adding in a future update. Here’s what I got so far. For the President, they should add a college basketball bracket to represent him since he’s a big fan of basketball. For Mrs. Bill Clinton, a computer server, for Jeb Bush just the word no, because, just no for a third Bush Presidency, for Brian Williams, a lie detector, for Roger Ailes of Fox News, a crown, because Fox is the king of cable, for MSNBC, a TV with static, for Scott Walker, a big W with an exclamation point  because Walker is Winning in Wisconsin, for Ted Cruz a Presidential podium (if we’re lucky in 2016), for Rand Paul a GOP elephant wearing hip, cool glasses, and for Chad Whittle, a guy on his knees with praying hands that Cruz, Paul, Walker or some other Republican wins the White House in 2016. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
