this week in stupid: September 2 edition
Vivek is a loon, Navarro is a goon, and so much more ...
as another stupid week comes to a close here in America, let’s look back at some of the highlights.
monday: this stupid fucking moron had access to nukes
“roomer are strong.”
jesus h christ, the misspelling is bad enough, but he couldn’t even grammar right.
it’s ROOMERS, you illiterate fuck.
tuesday: Vivek never said that thing he’s on tape saying
last week, we all learned that Vivek Ramaswamy is a dumb-ass.
this week, we all learned that Vivek Ramaswamy doesn’t care that he’s a dumb-ass.
last week, appearing on Chuck Todd’s show, Vivek floated the batshit crazy idea that Mike Pence could have, while certifying the electoral votes on Jan 6, unilaterally imposed voter ID and single-day voting. Vivek got roundly and deservedly mocked for this ignorant notion.
but the fun wasn’t over. this week, Vivek went on MSNBC and doubled down on the stupid.
“I stand by what I said in that interview, not what you just said I said.”
did you catch that? this is Vivek’s signature move: catch him lying or saying something stupid, and he’ll just claim he never said it.
bro, it’s on tape. we all saw it.
doesn’t matter. “I never said that.”
it’s just one more way that Vivek Ramaswamy is cribbing from the Donald Trump playbook.
wednesday: have some situational awareness, bro
it’s hard to make Peter Navarro look stupider than he is, but this woman does it in spades.
after losing his executive privilege battle in court, Navarro stood on the courthouse steps and tried to whine to reporters about how unfair it all is — all while a protestor stood behind him, holding a “Trump lost” sign. that would be awesome all on its own, but it’s what happened after Navarro realized what was going on that pushed the scene into the stuff of legend.
Navarro angrily tried to grab the sign, but our hero was having none of it.
“bro, you’re already facing charges, go ahead and commit another crime. I’ve been here the whole time. have some situational awareness.”
I have no idea who this woman is, but she deserves the Congressional Medal of Honor.
her twitter account is here. follow the shit out of her.
thursday: welcome to the United States of Stupid
imagine a country so hateful and intolerant that your neighbor to the north advises its citizens not to visit you.
well, if you live in the good old US of A, you no longer have to imagine it.
Canada has issued a new travel warning to its LGBT citizens planning to visit the United States.
Such warnings are usually reserved for countries such as Uganda, Russia or Egypt.
oh great. how awesome that we’re right up there with such bastions of human rights as Uganda and Russia and Egypt.
heck of a job, America, take a victory lap.
friday: oH My gOd WhAt iF TiM sCoTt iS tEh gAy
Republican South Carolina Senator and barely-a-candidate-for-president Tim Scott has a problem: he’s not married.
Top GOP donors and their allies privately are pushing Sen. Tim Scott's team for more detail about his bachelor status before deciding how much to support him in the presidential campaign, according to two people familiar with the conversations.
to which everyone who is not a member of the Homophobe Party says, “who the fuck cares who Tim Scott loves?”
it’s so fucking stupid. this is why Canada is doling out travel advisories, you morons.
hey, it’s still morning as I sit here writing this. but give it time, I guarantee you that some dipshit wingnut is going to do something stupid before the day is over. you can set your watch to it.
have a non-stupid weekend, everyone.
