Our main characters on Twitter over the weekend were UFC fighter Paddy Pimblett and former Vice President Al Gore.
HAVING A GOOD ONE:
PIMBLETT: Paddy “the Baddy” thrilled fans not just by defeating Jordan Leavitt on Saturday night, but also by making a mark outside the ring. Before the match, he took a stand against the fat-shaming of men, and afterward, he decried the “stigma” against men talking about their emotions, saying his friend had just killed himself.
If you listen to anything today, listen to what Paddy Pimblett has to say.

HAVING A BAD ONE
GORE: The failed Democratic presidential nominee turned climate activist took heat for using his Sunday appearance on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” to compare “climate deniers” to the police in Uvalde, Texas, who stood by during a May 24 massacre of school children.
Al Gore: "The climate deniers are really in some ways similar to all of those, almost 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred…"
