Last week in right-wing trolling
Presenting the worst takes on the Chinese spy balloon
What if the real Chinese spy balloon was the unfounded Armageddon scenarios we imagined along the way?
Pro-Trump troll forum The_Donald weighs in with the “real reason’ Biden wouldn’t shoot down the balloon—diversity, inclusion and … Ukraine?
Notable figures in the Trump administration either didn’t know about the Chinese spy balloons, or they lied to protect Trump.
Once evidence emerged that Chinese spy balloons did fly over the United States while Trump was president, the narrative shifted to blaming the “Deep State” for hiding this from Trump. There is, of course, no evidence for this. (The reality is they weren’t discovered until after Biden took office, but it wasn’t incompetence that led Trump officials to miss this, right? It was the “Deep State” undermining them!)
The missing context here is Milley “called China” because they were worried Trump would start WWIII via unhinged tweet.
I find the graphics on this one as offensive as the message itself.
And they’ll tell him, “Q sent us.”
Now, behold, the worst take of all. It wasn’t a “Chinese” balloon. It was a “Deep State” balloon. Okay then!
Very serious members of the House GOP will wrap this up for us.
Imagine if Jim Jordan had to explain what he’s implying here beyond what he wrote in this tweet. So what if it did, Jim? What would that prove?
Thanks to Kevin McCarthy, MTG is now one of the most powerful members of the House GOP. She says Joe Biden is “owned” by China and implies he couldn’t shoot down the balloon because the Chinese wouldn’t let him.
I refuse to treat an unserious caucus seriously.
Until next time…
