The Twitter clown present

1 of them applied to be the richest male in the world. The other a person utilized to be the Republican Party’s Up coming Massive Matter.  Now, with each other, they are America’s default late-night punch line.

It can be not easy to make the Trumpster glance knowledgeable, but these two clowns put their heads alongside one another and came up with one particular of the most blissfully idiotic and blundering performances in media historical past.

Twitter’s Chief Technological know-how Officer and America’s Chief Sanctimony Officer (certainly, sometimes even Donny is proper) got jointly on Twitter to announce that Ron DeSantis would be working for President of the United States. And in so executing they made certain that there is one particular detail Ron DeSantis will hardly ever be — President of the United States.

May perhaps I make a personal statement listed here? I am no Einstein when it will come to technology. But in my role as a experienced loudmouth, I come across myself generally showing up on podcasts and videocasts. And, as a person who is constitutionally averse to shame, I do some quite superior technological groundwork right before I make any appearances. I make guaranteed MY FUCKING MICROPHONE IS Performing.

Evidently, these two geniuses and their crack backup teams could not determine out how to mute a mic or make one operate. And for the initial time since Musk took over the helm, anything amazing truly occurred on Twitter.

I am curious to know why DeSantis assumed that announcing on Twitter with Musk was a very good thought. First of all, only about 20% of People are lively Twitter customers. And about % of them are outdated Republicans – the type who vote in primaries. 

And what prodigy considered that launching DeSantis — god’s selected holy roller — on a system that is now about 15% porn posts was a fantastic plan?

Additionally, Musk is clearly weakened items. Any track record that Musk had as some type of genius evaporated months in the past as he turned Twitter into a disastrous pile of shit, the Justice Department started off investigating his so-known as self-driving autos, and his most up-to-date rocket ship blew up on takeoff.
