    20 Reasons Why Leslie Jones Is A NATIONAL πŸ‘ TREASURE πŸ‘


    This is the ~incomparable~ Leslie Jones: actress, comedian, writer, Team USA superfan, and overall American hero.

    Here are some concrete reasons why my fave SNL cast member deserves a fucking NATIONAL πŸ‘ MEDAL πŸ‘ OF πŸ‘ HONOR πŸ‘:

    1. Her ~spirited~ coverage of the Pyeongchang Olympics has kept her followers smiling despite some hard times.

    It’s the glitter, boom! That’s it!! @NBCOlympics @olympics

    "The older I get, the more glitter I like." β€” Leslie Jones, National Treasure

    2. She did THIS.

    3. She recently got honest about second-guessing herself.

    4. And encouraged all of us to "SLAY ALL DAY."

    5. She steals EVERY scene that she's in on SNL!!!


    6. And as a Weekend Update guest, she always gets us to laugh and feel #EMPOWERED at the same damn time...


    7. ...while still managing to brilliantly hit on the ever-snacky Colin Jost.


    8. She works out every day so she can look and feel like her STRONGEST πŸ‘ SELF. πŸ‘ YOU GO, LESLIE!!!!!!!!!!! #FITSPO

    9. She's recognizes the injustices of the patriarchy.

    "MEN. ARE. DICKS!!" β€” Queen Leslie!!!

    10. She supports our Olympians and STANS them, win or lose.

    11. And gave us the National Anthem we craved.

    "'Haaaaay your chocolate is in my peanut butter!' 'Well your peanut butter's on my chocolate!' SHUT THE FUCK UP!!" β€” Leslie Jones, social reformer

    18. She reminds us to know our worth...

    I need this type of trust in a man!! Cause this is some trust!! @NBCOlympics @Olympics

    19. ...and to acknowledge the heroism of others.

    I would have been so petty about this!! @NBCOlympics @Olympics

    20. And lastly, Leslie Jones is the voice of the People and always says exactly what everybody's thinking.

    "Meanwhile back in the states... I leave for a couple of days and y’all lose your muthafucking mind!! Why did this happen? Not everyone supposed to do this y’all! You might as well should have ask me to sing. Wtf?!" β€” Leslie Jones on Fergie's rendition of the National Anthem

    ~THUS~ Leslie Jones is America's Sweetheart/Hero/Matriarchβ„’ and should be recognized AS πŸ‘ SUCH. πŸ‘

    With that, God bless the US of A, and in @Lesdogggg we trust!
