He has plenty worse tweets out there.

yeah this is one of them.

You know, if he really loved Family Guy, fine. Whatever. That "giggity" is what he feels is peak comedic value proves he is a monster.


also the fact that he had this take in 2009 seems like really strange timing

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

i mean, the show came out in 1999...and it came back in like 2006 due to a lot of public demand/dvd sales or whatever. 2009 seems like a strange time to be like, "hey guys, this family guy show is really hilarious, check it out!"

Trump now saying that he doesn’t know Whitaker (lol)

We know he’s lying, but the fact that he’s admitting that either a) he’s a big fat liar or b) he named someone to AG who he doesnt know anything about seems.....well I guess that seems normal these days

Saying that at any time is always 100% possible serial killer behavior.

There is never a good time to think Family Guy is funny, let alone worth stanning for.

it's too derivative of the simpsons and south park, they hit you over the head with their dumbed-down humor/gags and, if we're being honest with ourselves, some of the gags are in bad taste (rape jokes, etc.).

I mean, I know there are fans, but family guy scorn is fairly prevalent. I've been entertained by it from time to time, but it's nothing worth watching on purpose

Meeting someone still super into FG in 2018 is like meeting someone still super into Dave Matthews Band in 2018.

sure, we all know this. But since Trump thinks that 1984 is an instructional manual, he just says "we have always been at war with East Asia" and the country shrugs

I've seen other people spout similar variations of that about Trump; it was an annoying undercurrent with a lot of "never Hillary"-types on the left along the lines of, "oh, Trump would be fine when it comes to women's health rights/LBGTQ rights/PoC rights; he doesn't really believe in anything, and he's from NYC and wants famous people to love him and they tend to be liberal, and-," blah-blah-blah.

Pretty sure we were able to put that nonsense to bed a long time ago, ESPECIALLY in regards to his racism. Shut the horsefeathers up, Bernie.

The earlier statement about white people voting for black people was an extremely rough look for him, but this just seems like he's making a point that Trump can't be trusted and will swing from one extreme to the other if it serves his own personal interests, albeit with a terrible analogy.

Right, and it's a stupid, terrible point when it comes to racism and Trump. Trump has always been hideously racist, and has always been fine with trumpeting that to anyone willing to pay attention. Donald Trump, even at his most shamelessly pandering, will NEVER even remotely approach anything positive in terms of race relations or civil rights, so this is just moronic rambling at best.

Bernie served his purpose to bring some of the progressive ideas to the mainstream. Now it's time for him to fade away.

The AZ Sen race should be called for Kyrsten Sinema soon. I'm kinda surprised it hasn't been called after today's update.
