Monday open thread—Right wing hypocrisy edition

Monday open thread—Right wing hypocrisy edition

I honestly don't mean to ruin your breakfast, lunch, or dinner—TPV is worldwide, baby!—but this bit of hypocrisy is stunning even for me.

This is a painting of Sarah Huckabee Sanders by the actor Jim Carrey. (I had no idea he painted, natch.) The right wing is apoplectic over the caricature.

Now, consider, this is the same right wing which spent eight years of the Obama administration passing around memes of Pres. Obama as the Joker, as having a bone through his nose, as a gorilla. This is the same right wing which regularly excoriated the Obama children in filthy terms. This is the same right wing which called Michelle Obama a man. Now they're incensed when an artist engages in the time-honored political tradition of satirical caricature.

Sorry, snowflakes. The ugliness presented in this painting exactly mirrors the ugliness of the person. Deal with it.

Oh, and happy Monday!
