Once again, another hurricane or tornado, another member of the left politicizing it. This time around, it’s comedienne Lizz Winstead, the co-creator, back in the 1990s, of Viacom’s The Daily Show, before its current incarnation with Jon Stewart:
She thought she was making a topical political joke, but a co-creator of ‘The Daily Show’ managed to enrage many of her followers after tweeting joke about the Oklahoma tornado’s political motivations.
‘This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives,’ wrote comedian Lizz Winstead, in a tweet, around 3:30 Monday afternoon.
The tweet was an apparent attempt at using the occasion of the May 20 twister to comment on the scandal currently plaguing the IRS and Obama administration.
Winstead, co-creator and former head writer for ‘The Daily Show,’ promptly received a stream of angry responses to her tweet.
User @swashamokc wrote, ‘As an Oklahoman, I don’t think this was something that would result in my continuing to follow you.’
An unrepentant Winstead responded, ‘If its not OK to YOU for me to combine news stories to point out hypocrisy AND Im not making fun of victims u shld Unfollow.’
But then gravity of the tornado’s impact became clear. Winstead’s joke suddenly wasn’t so humorous and the normally funny lady was all red.
Well, all blue, actually, as the far left has a long habit of making some of their nastiest, worst-timed attempts at “humor” as hurricanes and tornadoes are in the midst of wreking havoc:
(Sorry for the interruption in posts. There’s quite a story behind it, which I’ll upload in the next couple of days.)
