Unsubstantiated crazy talk is now accepted and tolerated in the media and our social interactions. You can literally pull any claim out of thin air and be believed by quite a few people. Facts haven’t mattered for quite some time. Many people behave as if the election of the President of the United States is a contact sport or a blood sport even. The debates have also illustrated a willingness to twist reality to suit your world view. Calling out a lie is “bullying“. Standing up for oneself against criticism, or demanding facts to back up assertions is considered rude. But keeping calm and trying to have a polite and rational debate is seen as weak. Even our beloved Muppets get dragged into the contentiousness over and again! So what on Earth can we do?
We laugh at the ridiculousness of it all. Enjoy this hilarious creation courtesy of Bad Lip Reading!
