(Peru, Indiana) – As the #ClownWorld hashtag makes its way through right-wing social media, president of the American Organization of Clowning (AOC) Squeaks McGee is speaking out.
“First that brat pretending to be from the Bronx steals our initials, and now conservatives all over the Internet are comparing us to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer,” an exasperated McGee complained in an exclusive interview with The Fake Scoop.
The hashtag has taken on renewed resonance in recent weeks following Democratic disappointment with the results of the much-anticipated Mueller report.
“God knows what the Democrats are up to, but it certainly isn’t clowning,” said McGee.
Democrats Push Back
“I respectfully must disagree with Mr. McGee,” wrote Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in a letter published in the Boston Globe. “I have a long family history of clowning. When I was a child, my mother used to tell me about how her grandmother had a big red nose,” wrote Warren.
Warren went on to discuss the rubber chicken heirloom that has been passed down through her family for generations.
“Legend is it was given to my ancestors by P.T. Barnum himself,” Warren revealed.
On CNN, longtime Democratic Party strategist James Carville dismissed the notion that the Party was bereft of clowns.
“Of course we have plenty of clowns,” he told Anderson Cooper. “But we also have acrobats, trained animals, tightrope walkers, jugglers, contortionists , unicyclists – you name it. After all, we’re a Big Tent Party.”
