I think this family bloodline carries a gene that causes a terminal lack of self-awareness. They can’t help saying things at the worst possible time, without regard to how ironic it is.

    Annoying ass clickbait. Eric tweeted about how the Trump family “gave up everything for this country”. Some of the remaining conservatives who aren’t MAGA got upset with him.

    Oh my god the people whinging in the comments about the use of “SLAMMED” (not even in caps in the headline lol) are more annoying than every news site using them now

    We’re so reddit

      It’s a very simple rule, if it says “slammed” in the headline, it’s barely journalism and shouldn’t be posted

      Turned out to be clickbait right enough, proving the rule

      I disagree. People on Reddit didn’t stop saying gem until enough comments responded with le gem and similar mockery. Slammed won’t go away until it becomes enough of a meme that lazy journalists realize they’re parodying themselves when they use it.

    They are separated from the human experience most of us have. Most of us don’t get to be the center of attention every time we wipe. These people are NOT like us and DO NOT have the same interests we do.
