History was made at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, and the internet had no chill.

We’d expect the classic Michael Jordan-crying meme (one of which made it to our list), but this went above and beyond. Note to future presidential candidates: When Morgan Freeman narrates your campaign video that Shonda Rhimes has produced, you're asking for black Twitter to go in (but in a great way).
