Things We Saw Today: Mark Twain Has a Few Choice Words For Senate and House Democrats
Being that the Democrats in the Senate and the House need a little help growing a spine so they can stand up to Trump’s incompetent appointees and racist, sexist, homophobic agenda, Mark Twain has traveled to our time from the past to ask a simple question: “What the Fuck Are You Doing?” Actually, it’s actor Gabriel Diani of Diani and Devine Meet the Apocalypse channeling Twain. And why Twain? Well, if anyone would know from racism and sexism, it’s “A white dude from 1867 with some troubling opinions of my own.” And even HE thinks we’re fucked.
