What does Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries have in common with a dragonfly’s lifespan? They’re both longer-lasting than Michael Flynn’s tenure as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser. 

Flynn resigned Monday night, just 24 days into the role, amid allegations he discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with the Russian ambassador in the weeks before Trump took office. If proven true, Flynn could be in violation of the Logan Act, which prohibits private citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. 

Twitter users promptly responded to Flynn’s brief term with suggestions of things they say have had more staying power.
