Michael Phelps Responds to #DCProblems
Michael Phelps, the reigning champion of all things swimming, showed us his game face last night. As he sat in the ready room, preparing for the 200-meter butterfly semi-finals, his rival Chad le Clos started to do something interesting. The South African swimmer, who defeated Phelps in the same race at the London Olympics, jumped around directly in front of Phelps’ face, punching the air and shaking his body tauntingly. Michael Phelps didn’t like this, and he showed it in the best way we have ever seen.
.@MichaelPhelps is not impressed with Chad le Clos's antics.

We’ve decided to apply this face of fury to typical #DCProblems, mainly because we’ve all felt this way from time to time.
When you’re stopped in traffic on Key Bridge.
When a motorcade rolls through and you can’t get anywhere.
When a slow-moving tourist blocks your path to work.
When Donald Trump speaks.
People asking you if D.C. politics are like House of Cards. Stop.
When you walk outside and are immediately hit with a soup-like wall of humidity.
When your Metro car stops unexpectedly.
When the Metro floods.
When the Metro air conditioning breaks.
When the entire Metro shuts down.
Got a #DCProblem? Tweet it at us, with the Phelps face, of course.
