Our main characters on Twitter over the weekend were Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and comedian Billy Eichner.
HAVING A GOOD ONE
DESANTIS: The populist champion provided a masterclass in grace under pressure in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, feeding power line workers at a Waffle House in a viral video.

HAVING A BAD ONE
EICHNER: The comedian suggested homophobia was behind the premiere-weekend flop of his new movie, “Bros,” — but social media commenters pointed to the success of other LGBTQ-themed movies and suggested maybe Eichner’s rom-com just isn’t very good.
Billie Eichner blaming homophobia for his movie absolutely tanking at the box office. HONEY. Broke Back Mountain made $178 million and won a pile of Oscars all the way back in 2005. We don’t hate gay movies. We hate bad ones.
