The Most Absurd Political Moments Of 2017

If 2016 was the year of realizing stuff, then 2017 was the year of realizing politics is totally fucked. I mean, what can you expect when the year literally started with a reality T.V. star becoming president? In honor of the truly insane year that was 2017, The Betches Sup is counting down some of it’s most insane political moments. No, this doesn’t include everything. We’re not writing a novel. We’ll leave that to Hillary.

5. The Mooch’s 10 Day White House Job

Like any fuckboy who has ever disappointed you in bed, Anthony Scaramucci talked a big game, but ultimately finished too early. The Mooch was only Communications Director for 10 days before getting fired after being fired for telling a reporter that then Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was “a fucking paranoid schizophrenic” and that Trump advisor/bloated bog corpse Steve Bannon was “trying to suck his own cock.”

TBH I’ve said worse in college when a game of pong wasn’t going my way but like, I’m not White House Communications Director.

4. The Roy Moore Fake Accuser Scandal

Lol remember how Alabama almost elected an alleged pedophile to the Senate? Good times. One of the low-key most insane things that happened during this election (apart from the time Roy Moore rode a horse to the polls), was when Project Veritas, a group best known for filming rightwing sting operations that will eventually end up on your crazy aunt Grace’s Facebook feed, tried to trick the Washington Post. Long story short, hilarity ensued, and we have an amazing article that will tell you all about it.

3. The Time Trump Looked Directly Into The Eclipse

In the days before the eclipse, I feel like I saw a thousand comedians on Twitter joking about how Trump will look into the eclipse. Then the eclipse came, and he literally did it. TBH, in many ways, Trump is literally perfect:

2(A). The Time Trump Called Kim Jong Un Fat On Twitter

“Back in my day, world leaders tweeted insults at each other to solve problems” – Us to our grandkids in 2057 (if North Korea doesn’t kill us all). Who could forget the time President Donald Trump literally tweeted that Kim Jong Un was fat, in the most Mean Girls way ever:

This is the political equivalent of being like, “Omg not to call Becca a skank but like, she’s been sleeping with a lot of guys lately…”

2(B). The Time Trump Tried To @ British Prime Minister Theresa May But @‘ed Some Random Woman Instead

In a similarly fantastic disturbing, President Trump attempted to roast British Prime Minister Theresa May but @‘ing her on Twitter, but instead just @‘ed some random British lady with the same name who only had 6 followers. RIP Other Theresa May’s mentions. I’m sure they’ll never be the same.

1. The Time Ted Cruz Liked A Porn Tweet

Lol, I mean, who could forget the time Senator/least-popular-person-in-any-room Ted Cruz accidentally liked porn? Sure, he *says* it was liked by a staffer, but that begs the question…why are your staffers liking porn? Who LIKES porn. You just look at it, do your business, and GTFO. No need for the public declaration.

Honorable Mention: Anything involving Sean Spicer

TBH, it would be impossible to pick just one Spicey moment for this list. Whether it be his tweets about Dippin Dots, the time the internet found his venmo, or just his disastrous first press conference that was immortalized by Melissa McCarthy, Sean Spicer was kind of the Snooki of the White House. Did we support him as a person? Nah. But did we love to watch his antics? Omfg yes.
