#TheMJs, June 16, 2017

On Fridays, staff writer Marcus Jackson (@MarcusJ_NG) provides a glance at the best Twitter has to offer.

TOP TWEETS

POLITICS

— Such a bizarre scene on Tuesday with Trump and his Cabinet. Felt like an episode of "The Apprentice." I seriously hope that sorority president wasn't still on the mattress.

HOLLYWOOD

— How cool and respected was Adam West? The original Batman was considered on the same level of Beyonce with a millennial kid, which is no easy task these days.

MUSIC

— The feuding pop stars continued their beef this week. What are the chances they schedule a fight like Mayweather and McGregor? Theirs might actually be a more compelling, competitive fight.

LOCAL

— The Illinois basketball public address announcer has his work cut out for him this season. Would love to sit in on his practice sessions.

SPORTS

— Thanks to today's rules, NBA players don't fight like they used to in the good old days. But even by today's standards, it was weird to see West and Thompson appear to be kissing while fighting.
