To say 2015 was an an exciting year would be an understatement. Not only have there been incredible changes throughout the world and in our favorite city that we are honored to report on, but the FamousDC team has made some pretty amazing changes as well. This year, our team has grown significantly, experiencing too many “firsts” to simply list here.
We are so thankful to our audience (that’s YOU!), who has grown up with us and hung around for yet another year. Without you, we’d be laughing at our jokes alone.
This year included two parties in Las Vegas, a concert with Ludacris, an event with Shaq, and Rick Klein retweeted us once.
And we’re just getting started – let’s go crush 2016 together.
Here are just a FEW of our favorite moments from 2015.
This is nothing like House of Cards OR The West Wing.
These are the savvy folks who have waited on the sidelines for the upcoming election, and their parties are ready to put them in. Know them, befriend them, watch them expertly play the game.
When you work on the Hill, certain tasks can take over the time you spend at the job. We polled current and former staff, asking them how their time is spent at work.
What happens when FamousDC and members of Congress get together on Snapchat? Pure unadulterated magic.
Helping you find the next generation of talent, we reached out to our sources and compiled a list of 5 political reporters to watch.
We could not be prouder that the Supreme Court ruled that it’s unconstitutional to deny marriage license to same-sex couples in all states. #LoveWins.
We got our hands on some new Hillary emails not included in the 3,000 exposed by the US State Department. You’re going to want to check them out.
Barrett Kent Snead is Famous for DC and he’s a mere three days old! Barrett is the beautiful and healthy baby boy of FDC co-founder Amos Snead and his wife Whitney Drew.
Professional and amateur photographers get the chance to tell a visual story through the photos they’ve taken.
After a chat with the hip hop star, we enjoyed an epic performance which included all his legendary hits and a surprise guest appearance by his cousin and fellow artist, Monica.
What happens in Vegas used to stay there… that is until CNN and FamousDC started putting it all over the internet. Welcome to the 2016 Presidential debate trail.
We really don’t like to share, but if our fabulous VP of Operations had to spend her time with anyone else besides her officemates, we suppose Rhett is ok.
Okay DC, it’s Popelooza out there and we know it’s hard to sift through all the excitement. Lucky for you, this is your one stop shop for all things #PopeInDC. Tweets, snaps, hashtags, memorabilia, food specials, complaints, humble brags, and more.
I mean, it’s totally awesome that your parents had thousands of dollars to donate to your Member’s campaign, but if you can’t effectively answer a phone, greet constituents, or keep the damn candy bowl full of tasty mid-afternoon treats, what is the point of your existence?
No one in Washington D.C. agrees on everything, except perhaps this: that here is a decent, honest man who did his best in service of our nation.
Hillary would finally wear something other than a pantsuit. Just kidding; no she wouldn’t. She would, however insist on carving the Turkey. Donald would be the first to make someone cry. And then flirt with them. Jeb would try really hard to make small talk not awkward.
“I can not believe you just gave your business card to my mom.”
Sometimes there’s only one way to express your emotions… through gifs.
When we gave you that hoverboard, we did it with the best intentions. Honest. We had no idea that this futuristic floating travel device would somehow develop a mind of its own and self destruct into a ball of fiery evil. We didn’t know that the hottest holiday gift of the year would actually combust into flames.
Thank you to all our friends, family, and devoted readers for making 2015 one for the books. We couldn’t have done it without you. Cheers!
