Matt Gaetz Attempts To Troll Adam Schiff And Only Succeeds In Owning Himself

Even though he isn’t the least bit skilled at online trolling, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) decided he’d try to do so at the expense of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who wasn’t reappointed to the House Intelligence Committee by Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy simply because Schiff speaks his mind and was the lead House manager for the first impeachment of disgraced, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump.

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) let McCarthy know what he thought of his refusal to appoint Schiff and Eric Swalwell (D-CA) to the Intelligence Committee in a letter, noting:

“It is my understanding that you intend to break with the longstanding House tradition of deference to the minority party Intelligence Committee recommendations and deny seats to Ranking Member Schiff and Representative Swalwell. The denial of seats to duly elected Members of the House Democratic Caucus runs counter to the serious and sober mission of the Intelligence Committee.”

McCarthy’s recalcitrance is bad politics, bad optics, and bad for the national security of the United States.

Gaetz, however, who remains under investigation for allegedly taking an underage girl across state lines, having sex with her, and then paying her to remain silent, couldn’t resist adding his voice to the matter, posting this in response to a tweet asking what Schiff’s pronouns are.

If Gaetz had bothered to do a simple Google search, he would have learned that “removed” isn’t a pronoun. According to Dictionary.com, it’s a verb. In some instances, it can be a noun or an adjective, but it’s not a pronoun and never will be. But hey, why let basic knowledge of the English language stand in the way of a social media burn?

But that’s not all Rapey McForehead (a.k.a. Gaetz) neglected to take under consideration before he completely owned himself for the entire internet to see. And it didn’t take long before others have Gaetz a dose of his own medicine.

GED Queen Lauren Boebert Gets Flayed Online After Complaining About LGBTQ Teachers

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is a bigoted sack of shit. It’s really that simple.

Need proof? Consider:

In July of last year, Boebert said the Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade was no big deal for LGBTQ Americans because they can’t have children, remarking:

“I’m sorry, but if you’re not able to have a child, how does [the repeal of Roe vs. Wade] actually impact you?”

And in November, in the wake of a mass shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs, Boebert tried to express sympathy for the same people she had previously accused of “grooming” children.

“The news out of Colorado Springs is absolutely awful. This morning the victims & their families are in my prayers. This lawless violence needs to end and end quickly.”

Now Bobo is attacking LGBTQ teachers. Why? Because she’s a intolerant asshat.

“Growing up, I don’t recall teachers announcing their marital status & pronouns to everyone.

“They’re there to educate.

How is this still a complaint of the Left?”

That was all it took for Twitter to hit Boebert with a massive dose of internet karma.

Twitter Users Call Bullsh*t When Elon Musk Claims He Had ‘Major Side Effects’ After Getting COVID Booster

Twitter CEO Elon Musk announced on his social media site Saturday that he had “major side effects” after taking the most recent booster vaccination for Covid.

In a series of four tweets, Musk said he felt like he was “dying” after he received the booster shot and also claimed that his cousin had myocarditis after he took the booster.

“I had major side effects from my second booster shot. Felt like I was dying for several days. Hopefully, no permanent damage, but I dunno.”

“And my cousin, who is young & in peak health, had a serious case of myocarditis. Had to go to the hospital.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls myocarditis a “rare risk” that normally happens among young males:

“Data from multiple studies show a rare risk for myocarditis and/or pericarditis following receipt of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. These rare cases of myocarditis or pericarditis have occurred most frequently in adolescent and young adult males, ages 16 years and older, within 7 days after receiving the second dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna).”

Musk’s claims, it should be pointed out, are undercut by the fact that he has called for Dr. Anthony Fauci, former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to be put on trial.

Musk was pilloried on social media for that tweet and also got significant pushback to his latest assertions that he nearly died after taking the booster.

Ted Cruz Thumps His Bible At Stephen King And Promptly Gets His A*s Handed To Him

Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz really needs to take an extended absence from social media. Why? Because he keeps trying to troll others and always winds up humiliating himself because he clearly has no discernable sense of humor.

Consider just a couple of spectacular Twitter fails for Cruz that left him with internet egg on his face:

In October, Cruz was forced to delete a tweet he posted about Muslim white supremacists: “Cruz tweeted out a screenshot of what he claimed was an article from the Atlantic which was titled “The Evolution of White Supremacy” and included a subtitle which read: ‘In Dearborn Michigan, Muslim parents who oppose teaching pornography to children become the new face of the far right.”

Turns out the story was fake and Cruz fell for the lie.

Cruz also attempted to troll White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on the subject of student loan debt relief, posting a tweet that read “We believe in Santa Clause. And unicorns. And pixie dust!”

The guy graduated from Princeton and Harvard Law, but he can’t even manage to spell a name that most five-year-old kids have mastered.

And now Teddy Boy has responded to a tweet from novelist Stephen King in which the bestselling author encouraged kids to read as much as possible, even books that may be banned at their school (especially if they live in a deep red state like Texas), writing:

“Hey, kids! It’s your old buddy Steve King telling you that if they ban a book in your school, haul your ass to the nearest bookstore or library ASAP and find out what they don’t want you to read.”

Exactly. If they’re going to keep books away from kids in school libraries and classrooms, there’s always the bookstore and public library. Many curious young bookworms (including me) have done exactly that when anyone dared to try and keep information from us.

Cruz, however, couldn’t resist responding:

“And just like that, millions of kids began reading the Bible….”

Very few (if any) school districts in the United States have banned the Bible, so that’s a false equivalency. And here’s betting Teddy would pitch a hissy fit if the Koran was also allowed in Texas schools.

Though King hasn’t yet responded to Cruz, others did, and they let the senator have it.

Free advice, Ted: Delete your Twitter account and become a monk. That way you can read the Bible all day and night without interruption except for when you need to rub one out.

Lauren Boebert Mocked For Vowing To ‘Never Attend’ A Global Economic Forum She Wasn’t Invited To

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) thought she’d let the world know that she doesn’t plan to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, proudly making her announcement on Twitter.

What Boebert neglected to mention is that the Davos forum is by invitation only and she wasn’t invited in the first place.

That was all it took to set off a wave of online mockery, with many mentioning things they would never do.
