Leslie Jones Is Going To The Rio Olympics And All Our Dreams Are Coming True

by Katherine Barner

Showing that tweeting really can get you somewhere, Leslie Jones is being sent to Rio by NBC after live-tweeting the first few days of the Olympics in a hilarious way only she can accomplish. Needless to say, Leslie would be a mjaor step up from some of the NBC commentators — like Dan Hicks, who credited Hungarian swimmer Katinka Hosszu’s husband, Shane Tusup, for her record-breaking win in the 400-meter individual medley this past Saturday, saying “And there’s the man responsible,” when the cameras panned to Tusup. And then there was the commentator who said the U.S. women’s gymnastics team “might as well be standing in the middle of a mall” when they were shown laughing and chatting with one another after killing it in qualifications.

Leslie’s patriotism is displayed all throughout her Twitter, showing she is the #1 fan of all things America. NBC NEEDS YOU, LESLIE!!!!!

Check out her Twitter for all her fantastically funny and enthusiastic tweets.
