The World’s Smallest Man
Elmo trolls a Senator about masks, removes all doubt
Elmo seems to have given up all pretense of running Twitter like a business, or behaving like a grown up instead of a teenage cult member. After the comical clusterfuck about blue checks, including several companies losing billions of dollars after they were impersonated, this morning Elmo makes fun of a Senator for his concern.
“Perhaps it is because your real account sounds like a parody?”
“And why does your pp have a mask?!”
After a million deaths in the U.S. from COVID, many of which could have been prevented, Elmo chooses to focus on Senator Markey’s profile picture in which he’s wearing a mask.
You see, in this interaction, Elmo is “owning a lib” which is a defensive mechanism used by cult members when the negative effects of their behavior is pointed out. The positive reaction he gets from the cult will reassure him, and the horrified reaction by normies will reassure him as well.
Elmo appears to have given up on his advertising revenue, and he’s no longer accepting $8 from anyone. So, you have to come to the conclusion that Elmo burned $44 billion in a fire in order to be Grand Wizard of the town square — while he turns it into a Klan rally.
