Tucker Carlson Complains About ‘Androgynous’ M&Ms And Gets Masterfully Trolled By Eric Swalwell

It’s been a busy week in the news, filled with developments in the January 6 investigation and the ongoing debate over voting rights legislation which is being held hostage by Senate Republicans (assisted by two Democrats, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema), so you may have missed the childish hissy fit pitched by Fox News host Tucker Carlson over M&M candy being made “androgynous.”

You simply can’t make this shit up. It’s 2022 and truth always winds up being stranger (and dumber) than fiction.

Newsweek notes that Carlson went on an extended rant during his show Friday evening on the subject of genderless M&Ms:

Mars announced on Thursday that the company would make changes to M&Ms as part of its “global commitment to creating a world where everyone feels they belong, and society is inclusive.”

Carlson said: “Bet you didn’t think M&Ms were pushing intolerance, but they were, they’ve been changed.”

“You’re seeing those changes on the screen,” he said as images of the rebranded M&Ms were displayed.

OK, Tucker. Just let it go. No need to make a big production number out of candy. But he proceeded to do exactly that, remarking:

“The green M&M, you will notice, is no longer wearing sexy boots. Now she’s wearing sensible sneakers. Why the change? Well according to M&Ms, ‘We all win when we see more women in leading roles.’

“Because leading women do not wear sexy boots, leading women wear frumpy shoes. The frumpier the better. That’s the rule.”

Please, gods of TV, make it stop. Make it stop!!

It did not stop, as Tucker prattled on:

“The other big change is that the brown M&M has ‘transitioned from high stilettos to lower block heels,’ also less sexy. That’s progress. M&Ms will not be satisfied until every last cartoon character is deeply unappealing and totally androgynous.

“Until the moment you wouldn’t want to have a drink with any one of them. That’s the goal. When you are totally turned off, we’ve achieved equity. They’ve won.”

Wait a minute. Time out! Tucker Carlson was turned on by candy? Guess that shouldn’t surprise us since he’s the heir to the Swanson frozen dinner fortune, but did he need to share his perversion with the world? Of course he did; Fox demands such depravity for their sexually repressed viewers.

However, one good thing did come out of Carlson’s lunacy: The response from Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who fired back at the Fox host with this magnificent piece of online trolling:

Boom! Mic drop. Game, set, and match Eric Swalwell. Thank you for making this whole thing laughable, congressman.

Donald Trump Lara Trump Social Media WTF?!

Twitter Claps Back When Gaslighting Lara Trump Claims Donald Only Made $4 Total As POTUS

If you thought you’d heard all of the absurd bullshit that can possibly come from the mouth of a member of the Trump family, consider what Lara Trump claimed during an appearance on Fox News: Failed, one-term former President Donald Trump only made $4 a year as president.

Oh, and according to Lara, her father-in-law also “worked all day everyday for the American people.”

First we have the $4 a year statement, which The Independent notes, is apparently based on Donald donating his presidential salary:

She told Fox News viewers on Tuesday that the former US president took only $1 (£0.73) a year, or $4 in total, because he donated a large amount of his salary.

“I’m old enough to remember when we had a president who worked all day, everyday, for the American people, and by the way, took no salary.”

Not bad enough? Lara even asserted that Donald didn’t golf that much:

Lara Trump also said Donald Trump “clearly wasn’t golfing a quarter of his presidency.” But it was close: He played nearly 300 rounds over his single term in office, costing taxpayers more than $150 million. Millions of those tax dollars went into his own pocket since many of the golfing trips took place at his resorts.

However, while Fox Host Sean Hannity didn’t call Lara out for her blatant lies and gaslighting, Twitter certainly did, and she was quickly handed a well-deserved round of mockery and fact checking:

Eric Trump Has An Online Meltdown As New York AG Tish James Closes In On Him

It’s been a very bad 48 hours for Eric Trump, who found out that his phone records have been obtained by the House Select Committee on the January 6 Capitol insurrection and is now facing added pressure thanks for a court filing from New York Attorney General Letitia James.

The court filing hit the Trumps like a bolt of lightning, as James made it clear that she has “significant evidence” of criminal acts by the Trump Organization that she continues to pursue:

James, who launched her probe in 2019, also said in the court filing that the former president “had ultimate authority over a wide swath of conduct by the Trump Organization” that involved fraudulent misstatements to financial institutions, the Internal Revenue Service, and other parties.

That means bank and tax fraud. The Trumps have been suspected of those crimes for years.

But rather than remain calm and consult his attorneys, Eric Trump decided he’d have a childish meltdown and share it with the internet, firing off tweets that are certain to come back to haunt him and his family as the case against them moves forward.

What exactly was accomplished with that hissy fit? Does he think mean tweets are going to convince Ms. James to drop the case against him and the Trump Organization? If so, then Eric’s even dumber than he looks.

Eric quickly got hit with a massive dose of internet karma. Take a look:

Ron Johnson’s Twitter Poll About Ending The Filibuster Backfires On Him In Spectacular Fashion

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) thought he had a surefire way to prove that the majority of Americans don’t support reforming the Senate filibuster so that voting rights legislation can be voted on, so he decided he’s post a poll on Twitter.

But it didn’t take long before Johnson found out his poll only succeeded in making him look like a complete fool.

This could be a crucial week in the fight to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has made it clear he intends to call a vote and make very member of the upper chamber cast a vote for or against expanding the right to vote, according to The Hill:

Schumer, from the Senate floor, moved to formally end debate on voting legislation that combines the Freedom to Vote Act, which overhauls federal elections and campaign finance laws, and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which strengthens the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

That is expected to set up a vote on Wednesday, though it could be delayed until Thursday, where the legislation will need 60 votes to advance in the Senate. Republicans are expected to block the bill, and once that happens Schumer is vowing to bring up a vote on changing the Senate’s rules.

That led to Johnson’s Twitter poll.

But the senator didn’t get the response he was expecting, as over 95% of those who responded said they want to see the filibuster booted and voting rights legislation passed:

Oops! How embarrassing for Sen. Johnson, who recently announced he’d be seeking a third term in office in the 2022 midterm elections. Many of his fellow Republicans are said to be apoplectic and “having a heart attack” about his reelection campaign, which insiders believe is doomed to fail.

Quite clearly, Ron Johnson is out of touch with voters. Here’s hoping they take that out on him in spectacular fashion come November.

Trump Tries To Troll Joy Reid On MLK Holiday And Gets His A*s Handed To Him By The MSNBC Host

Proving yet again that he’s a hardcore bigot and racist, failed one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump spent part of the holiday honoring the late Martin Luther King Jr. attacking a black woman.

The attack on Reid came out of nowhere, but it made clear what we’ve long known about Donald: He absolutely hates strong women, especially strong women of color.

In a statement he sent to reporters Monday morning, Trump wrote:

Will Morning Joe be canceled? He and Mika’s ratings are very low—they are having an extremely hard time finding an audience to listen to the Fake News they spurn. Losing them would be very sad—hope it doesn’t happen! On another front, looks like Unjoy Reid, the racist commentator on MSDNC (MSNBC), is toast. Her stupidity is only surpassed by her absolute lack of television persona. She never had it, and never will. The only thing she’s good at is spewing racist hate but obviously, no one is listening!

In contrast, here’s what the real president, Joe Biden, had to say on this day set aside to honor the civil rights hero:

And then Joy Reid got ahold of Trump, and she absolutely destroyed him:

Even with all the makeup Donald wears, this burn is sure to leave a mark.
