Washed-Up Former Rock Star Ted Nugent Just Made The Dumbest Statement EVER About COVID-19

Decades ago, before he became a right-wing nutjob who called for killing former President Barack Obama and made a horrific sexist slur against Hillary Clinton, Ted Nugent cut a couple of good albums and had a few hits that did reasonably well on the charts.

Nowadays, however, Nugent is lucky if he can even draw a crowd to see him stumble his way through a few songs so he can collect a few hundred bucks.

But in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic the entire world is suffering through, Ted’s poorly-attended ho-hum concerts have been canceled so they don’t become superspreader events and add to the death toll from the disease.

Rather than accepting that he cannot hold concerts right now, Nugent posted a whiny (not to mention moronic) video on Facebook in which he made what may well be the most clueless statement yet uttered about COVID:

“You know, I guess I would ask you — because I’m addicted to truth, logic and common sense — and my common-sense meter would demand the answer to why weren’t we shut down for COVID one through 18? COVID-1 — and there was a COVID 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 — COVID one through 18 didn’t shut anything down but woah, COVID-19!”

Really, Ted?

Is it possible that Nugent is so damn stupid that he doesn’t know how the name COVID-19 came about and that there weren’t 18 other forms that preceded it? If so, here’s some wisdom courtesy of the fact-check site Snopes.com:

“The respiratory disease COVID-19 was named in February 2020 for the coronavirus that causes it — SARS-CoV-2 — and the year in which the first disease case was reported — 2019. Following that logic, Nugent’s proclamation of a ‘COVID one through 18’ would suggest that there had been 18 years of coronavirus infection rates at a global scale, which is unfounded.”

That was all social media needed to rake Teddy over the coals for his massive ignorance:

Ted once told an interviewer that he had never done drugs in his life. Based on what a clueless fool he is, maybe he should have.

Arizona Republican Asks Why We Need Masks For COVID Since We Didn’t During The AIDS Crisis

It has been proven on more occasions than can be counted that a majority of Republicans don’t appreciate, like, or accept the basics of science and medicine, probably because those two disciplines are based on facts and logic.

One of the main reasons we’re in the COVID mess we’re in as a country (leading the world in number of cases and total deaths) is because our failed, one-term former president chose to listen to idiots instead of experts when it came to fighting the virus that has so far claimed the lives of 523,000 Americans.

But if you thought you’d heard all the jaw-dropping remarks from members of the GOP that make both your head and your teeth hurt, consider Joseph Chaplik, a member of the Arizona legislature who (you guessed it!) just so happens to be a card-carrying Republican and a complete imbecile.

During a debate on mask wearing to combat the coronavirus pandemic, Chaplik had this to say:

“HIV, that was going to wipe our global destruction of human bodies with AIDS. We heard about that in the ’80s. Yet no masks were required.”

For the brain dead (i.e. Republicans and their ilk) in the audience, AIDS is caused by the sharing of bodily fluids such as via sex or sharing hypodermic needles. A mask wouldn’t do any good in combating spread of the disease. If Joseph Chaplik had a single brain cell in his skull, he’d know that.

Chaplik and others like him should indeed stop wearing their masks when they go out in public. Maybe that way we can thin the herd and rid ourselves of these morons.

Republican Congresswoman Gets Mocked After Blaming Windmills For Power Outages

Republicans are getting dumber by the second, and some of them are even more moronic than their Supreme Leader, the failed, one-term loser president and future inmate, Donald Trump.

If you doubt that thesis, consider the case of Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) a pinheaded, knuckle-dragging gun worshiper who got elected because she pledged eternal loyalty to Donald Trump, who promptly repaid her loyalty by getting his ass kicked in a matchup with Joe Biden.

Boebert thought she’d weigh in on the fact that millions of Texans are now without power as a result of the massive ice storm. According to Ms. Boebert, the reason for the power outages can be traced back to frozen wind turbines. As you’d expect, that’s complete bullshit, as the power shortage in the Lone Star State has been caused by the weather and an increased demand for energy as temperatures plummet across the state:

Memo to Lauren Boebert: It’s never a good idea to cite Tucker Carlson as your source of news or information since all he does most nights on his show is lie, peddle conspiracy theories, and attempt to attract the lowest IQ viewers possible.

Wind energy has actually been a huge success in Texas, and now accounts for nearly 20 percent of all the power produced in the state.

Reaction to Boebert’s massive moronic meltdown was immediate and on point. Take a look:

It takes a special kind of stupid to believe anything a Republican says. They’re either lying, full of crap, stupid, or a bit of all three.

Congress GOP Whining U.S. Senate WTF?!

Batsh*t Crazy Sen. Ron Johnson Claims Nancy Pelosi Is To Blame For Capitol Riots

You probably thought that the lawless mob of pro-Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6 and threatened the lives of Congressional Democrats are to blame for what took place that day, but according to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), the real culprit is Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

During an appearance on the Fox Business show “Sunday Morning Futures,” Johnson was asked about the second impeachment of former President Donald Trump, which begins next week. He replied:

“What’s this impeachment all about? We now know that 45 Republican Senators believe it’s unconstitutional. Is this another diversion operation? Is this meant to deflect potentially away from what the Speaker knew and when she knew it? I don’t know, but I’m suspicious.”

What in the hell?! Nancy Pelosi’s life was in danger the day of the riots, and she could have potentially been killed by the MAGA morons who thought they had every right to march into the Capitol building and defecate in the hallways. How is any of this her fault?

Ron Johnson is a stooge who spent the better part of a year spouting Russian propaganda from his chairmanship of the Senate Homeland Security Committee. He has also repeatedly defended Trump, no matter what the former president said or did.

It’s fascinating to watch as both Fox and the GOP now become the party of sedition and insurrection. Maybe we need to invoke the section of the 14th Amendment which states that those who commit such acts cannot serve in public office and boot these traitors from their Senate seats.

Here’s Johnson on Fox Business:

Congress Donald Trump Impeachment WTF?!

Matt Gaetz Owns Himself When He Vows To Resign From Congress And Defend Trump In Second Impeachment

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) wound up making a complete fool of himself when he bragged that he was willing to resign his seat in Congress and defend former President Donald Trump at next week’s Senate impeachment trial, which begins on Monday, February 8.

Raheem Kassam, who serves as Editor-in-Chief of the far right site The National Pulse, was the first to report on Gaetz’s comments:

Specifically, Gaetz told former Trump staffer Steve Bannon:

“I would leave my House seat, I would leave my home.

“I view this cancellation of the Trump presidency and the Trump movement as one of the major risks to my people.”

Those remarks led to endless mockery directed at the Florida congressman on social media:

Of course, before Matt defends Trump, he’ll probably need to chug a 12-pack of Budweiser and go for a few laps around town so he can get yet another DUI.
