Shut Up Fool Awards- Last Weekend In PyeongChang Edition
They will be competing in the gold medal match vs Sweden in men's curling after knocking off the world number one ranked Canadians TWICE to get there. We picked up an unexpected gold medal in the cross country ski relay. It was the first medal ever for USA women in the sport, the first gold in cross country skiing by any American of any gender and the first since Bill Koch won a silver in the 30km race in Innsbruck in 1976
Amd yes, the USA women finally captured that second elusive gold medal in Olympic hockey over their bitter north of the border rivals
But as the Winter Games come to a close and the hosting toch gets passed north to Beijing in 2022, the fools among us keep striving for perfection in our news cycle. They are chasing idiocy, hypocrisy and WTF level outright lying.
So here's this week's medalists for the TransGriot Shut Up Fool Awards, Olympic style
The bronze medal goes to the World Peace and Unification Sanctuary in Newfoundland, PA who mere days after a mass shooting happened in Florida that killed 17 people with this assault, is happening a blessing ceremony for AR-15's
Really? You ammaosexuals really love your guns.
The silver medal is a joint one to the NRA and the Republican Party for every stupid comment or attempt they have made to spin this Parkland, FL tragedy and stifle any attempts at much needed gun regulation, starting with banning AR-15's
The gold medal goes to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who not only has had a tough week in his home state because of his A+ NRA rating,.he's coming under more intense criticism from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas students and their parents who are calling BS on his constant attempts to spin for his NRA paymasters.
He also took to Twitter to attack the MSG students and parents mere hours after appearing at that CNN town hall as 'extremists who hold a position well outside the mainstream'
Naw boo boo itty, it is you who are holding 'a position well outside the mainstream because overwhelming numbers of people want sensible gun regulations.' .
And for those of you in Florida and elsewhere hollering 'Fire Marco Rubio', y'all had a chance to do that in 2016 and failed to handle your business. You're stuck with his NRA butt kissing behind until 2022
Marco Rubio, Shut Up Fool!
