If perhaps you’ve ever wondered whether or not stupidity is a hereditary trait, consider the case of the family of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and their dairy farm just outside Tulare, California.
According to The Tulare Advance-Register, a massive 100-ton hay fire is burning at the Nunes and Sons Dairy, which has investigators wondering what exactly might have caused the blaze.
Well, according to neighbors who live near the Nunes dairy farm, it’s all connected a fireworks show held at the dairy on the eve of Independence Day:
“Neighbors on Oakdale Avenue said they witnessed a ‘Disney-style’ illegal fireworks show and party at the dairy, which is run by a relative of Tulare Congressman Devin Nunes.
“Lori Lockwood, who lives across from the dairy, said she heard loud booms and felt her house shake before midnight. She went outside with her husband and watched the colorful display, she said.
Soon after, Lockwood said her husband noticed a fire spreading in the field that separates their property from the Nunes’ family dairy. She called 911.”
Exceptionally dry weather in California has led officials to to warn against residents shooting fireworks at home, but apparently the Nunes clan doesn’t think the rules apply to them, much like their more well-known relative.
News of a fire at the dairy is especially ironic in light of the fact that Congressman Nunes sued Twitter over a parody account that pretended to be from a cow at the Nunes family dairy, as CNN reported last year:
“California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes cannot sue Twitter over allegedly defamatory remarks made about him by satirical accounts pretending to be his mother and a cow, a Virginia judge ruled Wednesday.
“Nunes sued Twitter, the two satirical accounts and a third Twitter user in March 2019, demanding $250 million in damages and that the anonymous accounts be unmasked.”

So is stupidity an inherited trait? Mmmm…ooo….yeah.
