Every two years, for a few weeks, we all get to enjoy a global phenomenon that brings many countries together: Leslie Jones live-tweeting the Olympics.
Since the Opening Ceremony kicked off the Winter Games yesterday, the Saturday Night Live comedian has returned to Twitter with her enthusiasm, her jokes, and her sheer patriotism. It is a joy.
Two years ago during the Rio Summer Games, Jones was a breakout star for her seriously funny running commentary on the sports. And as of Saturday, she’s back in the saddle. The events are different, but her hilarity remains the same.
These Olympic Games are actually getting a fair bit more of Jones since NBC announced that she will join the coverage team on the ground in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
But that wasn’t enough commentating on the Olympics for Jones who still wants to give us the gift of her wonderful tweets.
There are so many more on her Twitter account, and they are all… wait for it… gold.
Go Leslie Jones and go U.S.A!
