Yesterday, Time announced Elon Musk as its Person of the Year, and I would think that after realizing Time referred to him as just a “Person,” Elon would shit on them for not referring to him as a Higher Intergalactic Being Who’s On An Intellectual Level That Humanity Hasn’t Even Dreamed Of Reaching Yet. That probably didn’t fit on the cover. But Elon Musk did put his throbbing tweetin’ fingers of rage to good use by role-playing as a snotty billionaire brat who throws a little tantrum after his mom tells him to eat his vegetables pay his taxes. After Senator Elizabeth Warren said on Twitter that Time’s current Person of the Year is freeloading off everyone else, Elon pushed the sexual harassment lawsuits against Tesla from six women to the side, and called Senator Warren “Governor Karen.”
The previously universally beloved Jane Lynch is discovering that universal belovedness is cheap when venturing into the hellish toilet landscape that is politics on Twitter. Jane Lynch defended rich people in a tweet after this week’s Democratic presidential debate featured candidate Elizabeth Warren going after her fellow candidate Pete Buttigieg for holding a fundraiser in a Napa Valley “wine cave.” This provoked tweets dragging Jane for defending billionaires and comparing her to her high society character on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. But what I’m wondering is, are there BEER CAVERNS, too? Who has those? Can I go there? Are there tours?
Taylor Swift‘s squad is growing and it’s got some big political names to add to the roster. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Elizabeth Warren, are tossing their opinions into the mix in this whole Taylor Swift Vs. Scooter Braun and Big Machine Records founder Scott Borchetta battle over the use of her early music. Of course they’re bringing it back to politics, showing how big corporate greed can fuck over even the most powerful musical artist in the world. And while AOC and Elizabeth Warren are giving their two cents, Big Machine is clearing out their offices and checking for strange packages in the mailroom because of the threats they’ve been getting.
