Anyway, the other day, Matt Walsh was up to his typical Matt Walshian hateful trolling, deciding to wade into trans waters where no one invited him. Nevertheless, Matt Walsh persisted with one of the worst Tweets in recent memory, trying to explain why he would stop loving his wife “if she turned into a man” with an analogy that he would do the same were she to become a lizard. God, shut up, Matt Walsh. I mean even Matt Walsh’s God is thinking that daily. God is like, “Christ, I made this guy?”

Luckily, the hilarious writer and paragon of Twitter Bess Kalb, who has written for Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Oscars, was there to save the day through the magic of fairy tales.
