Thousands of Americans Submit Pictures of Where They Spent 4th of July Weekend To Prove America Is Already Great

This weekend I saw a bunch of rando’s popping up on my timeline. Everybody posting mundane to excellent photographs along with the hashtag #AmericanGreatness. Upon a push and a click, I saw Stephen Colbert sent out a request for pictures documenting where Americans are spending their fourth of July weekend. 

Thousands of people responded with pictures of where they were at that moment (or previously, who knows with social media) and Stephen(‘s intern) has been retweeting replys all day. I suppose it’s a subtle nods to President Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again” because this collage of photos speaks a thousand words about why America has been great all along. You just gotta look up from the twitter machine to appreciate it.
