Fake News

-Daniel Funke

Offense: “New fact check: A viral photo makes it look like President Biden checked his watch during a ceremony honoring U.S. service members killed in Kabul. But that's misleading.”

-Stephen King

Offense: “1200 dead of COVID yesterday in Florida.

Not the total for a week or a month, but ONE SINGLE DAY.”

-President Biden

Offense: “My Build Back Better Agenda costs zero dollars. 

Instead of wasting money on tax breaks, loopholes, and tax evasion for big corporations and the wealthy, we can make a once-in-a-generation investment in working America.

And it adds zero dollars to the national debt.”

-Thomas Massie

Offense: “How is THIS not foreign interference in our elections?”

-Nicki Minaj

Offense: “My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied”

-Sawyer Hackett

Offense: “Border patrol is mounted on horseback rounding up Haitian refugees with whips.

This is unfathomable cruelty towards people fleeing disaster and political ruin. The administration must stop this”

My pick: Stephen King

Other top choices: President Biden, Sawyer Hackett

WINNER: Sawyer Hackett

Worst simp 

-Ed Mcginty

Offense: “The woman in Red her shirt reads Biden Sucks. I protested verbally that she take it off or I would take a picture and post it so her grandchildren would see it. The six trump supporters complained and the police banned me from the pool”

-Isaac Saul

Offense. “Every single person on this website tweeting about AOC would cut off one of their own fingers to go to the Met Gala and interact with the people they spend all day tweeting about”

-Joe Lockhart 

Offense: “Jen is the best-full stop. I know how much help it takes to get to that podium. But this story seems to only credit men for her success. No women are quoted at all. It's sadly indicative of so much coverage of successful women. Do better men.”

Ben’s pick: Isaac Saul

WINNER: Joe Lockhart

Most cringe

-The Late Show

Offense: “Just another reason to get your vaccine. 💉#LSSC”

-Jessica Ballinger

Offense: “Parker, when I read him the headline that Pfizer’s early results of their trials are showing that COVID vaccines are safe & effective for 5-11 year olds!!!!!”

-Patricia Karvelas

Offense: “Memories of the happiest day of my life #getvaxxed”

-Billy Baldwin

The Governor of Flor-duh is Ron Duh-Santis and the Governor of Tex-ass is Greg Ab-butt”

-Yamiche Alcindor

Offense: “President Biden didn’t take any questions. 

But, there was this super color coordinated red row waiting to try.”

Worst tweet

-AOC

Offense: “The medium is the message.”

Richard Hanania 

Offense: “You can’t screen for Down syndrome before about 10 weeks, and something like 80% of Down syndrome fetuses are aborted. If red states ban abortion, we could see a world where they have five times as many children with Down syndrome, and similar numbers for other disabilities.”

-Michael Brendan Dougherty

Offense: “I’m sure you hold your view in good faith. But that’s why I also have the good faith view that I’d rather have my kids raped by Jesuits than educated by them. Less damage I think.”

-Stella Parton

Offense: “Don’t you find it odd that women in America are being treated worse than women in Afghanistan?  We wasted 2trillion dollars plus to go into Afghanistan to liberate their women and children?  Something ain’t right here folks. Are you catching on yet?”

-Pam Keith

Offense: “On 1/6/2021,

9/11/2001 ceased being the worst thing that happened to America in my lifetime. 

It’s really weird and painful to process and say that. 

But it’s the truth.

Offense: “This was politics.  Every step of the way. 👇🏻”

-Frederick Joseph

Offense: “At the dog park in Brooklyn with my fiancé and this white woman was threatening to call police and told us to “stay in our hood” because she had our dog confused with another dog who had been barking loudly. So, I started recording and she tried to slap the phone out my hand.”
