Ice Cold Trolling

Trolling is generally not considered kind or good practice. It can be mean, demoralizing, and a form of bullying that can have drastic consequences.

The majority of the time, the person doing the trolling is just an insecure asshat with nothing better to do with their time.

However, sometimes trolling can be used as an epic and poetic method of messing with people who are racist, bigoted, sexist, or just dimwitted in general.

In those cases (generally occurring online), it’s pretty funny to watch unfold. But when it happens on a larger scale in real life to the Vice President of The United States, it is downright hysterical.

And that’s exactly what happened when Mike Pence visited Iceland.

It’s often referred to as the Hilary Clinton Effect and, if you are a person that owns a vagina, you more than likely have endured or witnessed it first-hand.

But here’s some helpful tips on how to remain authoritative without being perceived as off-putting or unlikeable.
