"Tony Abbott can't stop the votes."
The biggest news of the week was old mate Tony Abbott losing his PM crown to Malcolm Turnbull. #PutOutYourOnions wasn’t the only thing dominating the Twittersphere.
Imagine if Turnbull doesn't win. Imagine being less popular than Tony Abbott. Tough day on the self-esteem.— Felicity Ward (@felicityward) September 14, 2015
YES! THE WHITE MALE PRIVATE SCHOOL CATHOLIC RHODES SCHOLAR WON! #LibSpill— Tom Gleeson (@nonstoptom) September 14, 2015
Twelve hours and still nothing from Abbott, but to be fair Turnbull has lots of houses so burning all of them down will take time. #libspill— Adam Liaw (@adamliaw) September 15, 2015
Abbott’s not the only political figure that took a beating this week. His US counterpart (when it comes to hilarious and ridiculous news pieces), presidential candidate Donald Trump, took some punches at a recent debate.

Texas student Ahmed Mohamed was arrested during the week after bringing a homemade clock to school that teachers mistook for a bomb.
Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great.— President Obama (@POTUS) September 16, 2015
#IStandWithAhmed totally BUT it would be a *little* funny if that clock kinda sucks and Obama still has to be like "This sure is something!"— Chase Mitchell (@ChaseMit) September 16, 2015
#IStandWithAhmed because he wasn't carrying anything dangerous, like skittles or iced tea.— John Fugelsang (@JohnFugelsang) September 16, 2015
All three of the aforementioned gentlemen could have used a dislike button on Facebook during the week – a function that founder Mark Zuckerberg said this week is in motion.
Hate to break it to you Facebook but the entire internet is already a dislike button— josh groban (@joshgroban) September 16, 2015
Glad Facebook has finally decided to add the dislike button, because in my opinion, social media isn't negative enough.— Michael Flynn (@Home_Halfway) September 15, 2015
Facebook is introducing a "dislike" button. You hear that, Steve from high school who thinks vaccinations cause autism? You're going down.— Miles Kahn (@mileskahn) September 15, 2015
More than a "Dislike" button, Facebook really needs a "Wow Is That Racist" button.— Matt McDaniel (@themattmcd) September 15, 2015
Facebook says they're working on a dislike button. How much "work" does this require???— Eli Braden (@EliBraden) September 16, 2015
Is "bigot" short for "big idiot?" Just curious.— Matt McGorry (@MattMcGorry) September 15, 2015
