Get your foreign policy dope straight from the horse’s [censored]!
So… there’s a big problem with Russia invading Ukraine, we’re not quite sure what to do with the rest of the Pandemic, and The Regime’s popularity is so far underwater, Jacques Cousteau couldn’t find ’em. What to do, what to do?
Aha! Simple! Just invite 30 TikTok “influencers” for a briefing at the White House, fill their empty skulls with the party line, and pay ’em a thousand smackers each to use their social media presence in the service of the worst president we ever even imagined (https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2022/03/11/tik-tok-ukraine-white-house/).
No matter how confused, feckless, incompetent, or dangerous its policies prove to be, The Regime now knows that TikTok’s got their backs. And as an added benefit, TikTok is owned and operated by a known, paid-for tool of the Chinese Communist Party! Does this bunch at the White House ever get into a bed that doesn’t already have a commie in it?
We’re also going to rely on some outfit called Gen Z For Change (does that stink to high heaven, or what?) to sell The Regime’s policies to ignorant young college types. What’s the average age of a TikTok influencer? Nineteen? Twenty?
Says a greybeard of 21, “People in my generation get all our information from TikTok!”
I rest my case.
