ę Paul Ryan Won't Knock Down Speculation That Egg McMuffin Secretly Taped and Leaked That Ridiculous "Scoop" About Kevin McCarthy Saying Trump was Paid by Russia | Main | Overnight Open Thread (19 May 2017) Ľ

Ok, so here's the background. Somebody took the following picture of Senator Ben Saase and Chuckie Schumer:


Senator Sasse's response was pretty funny-something along the lines of "Senator Schumer and I look like two guys getting stoned outside a wedding", and the Washington Free Beacon decided to tweet the picture as a caption contest. That's when Ted Cruz weighed in:

Pretty funny stuff, and lots of people were laughing and giving Cruz Twitter high fives, and we can't have that now, can we? Someone might get the idea that a REPUBLICAN had a sense of humor or something.

Enter GQ.

First of all, the title of their article is, well, maybe a tish alarmist:


Now the folks in GQ's twitter feed seemed to think that this made Cruz a hero (they don't all wear capes, you know), thereby not just invalidating their premise but inverting it, but I encourage you to go read it for yourself (it's only 2 paragraphs long). The spittle flecked vitriol (over a funny TWEET) is something to behold.

Sheesh, what an absolute riot that one is. See, it's funny because Ted Cruz is saying Schumer bought not one, but two rompers for men. And of course a snowflake like Democrat Chuck Schumer would wear something that only girls wear. Get it now? Get it? Look, we're not even saying that RompHims are stylish, but honestly we're just a little shocked that Cruz was able to destroy all of the Twitter fun the RompHim had provided over the past 48 hours this fast. This is why we can't have nice things.

GQ (aren't they supposed to be a FASHION magazine??) seems quite put out that people are mocking the sartorial splendor that is the RompHim. More than that, however, they are incensed that a Republican made a funny. These people have lost their damn minds.

Open thread until the ONT shows up.
