Ghoulish, Power-Seeking Creep

Conservative commentator Matt Walsh tweeted this poll question to his followers last week, “Who is the worst wife in America?”

Matt’s right-wing audience predictably named Jill Biden #1. Apparently, she is “worse” than the Idaho mom who killed her two kids before running away with some religion nut or the South Carolina mom who rolled her car into a pond with her two kids inside and claimed it was “carjacked”.

With John Fetterman in the news after admitting himself for treatment for depression, Gisele Fetterman came in a surprising second. Surprisingly, Nancy Pelosi did not come in third. Matt’s followers went show biz with Megan Markle at #3 and Jada Pinkett-Smith at #4. Conservatives are still pissed that Megan abandoned her role in “Suits” to marry into the Royal Family. Who would give up a role in a cable TV series that no one watched to marry into the richest non-Saudi family in the world? Also, Jada doesn’t really have alopecia. She shaved her head to get attention.

Here’s an upset. According to conservatives, three of the four “worst wives in America” are immigrants or women of color. Good luck in getting that Republican nomination for president, Nikki Haley.

Tucker Carlson just had to chime in on the poll. “Why is Dr. Jill not the villain in this story? What is her problem? A woman, a spouse, who loved her husband would keep her husband away from campaigns. What a ghoulish, power-seeking creep.”

Actually Tuckie, the “ghoulish, power-seeking creep” might be the Fox News Superstar who broadcast The Big Lie when his e-mails show that he knew it was exactly that.

“Jill Biden and Gisele Fetterman should be ashamed of themselves,” Laura Ingraham declared. “Who’s the bigger elder abuser, Jill Biden or Gisele Fetterman?”

Way to go, Laura. A little ageism always spices up misogeny. By the way, John Fetterman is only 53 years old. You are 59. Don’t let the facts get in the way of a good sound bite.
