There was a stunning array of competition this week for that most coveted of titles.
There was DPF for this outstanding piece of hyperbole. Apparently trying to get National to acknowledge that climate change is a thing is the same as trying to get Labour to accept responsibility for what I am not quite sure. Talk about false equivalence.
And I'd like to see a Labour Party acknowledge the millions of deaths and poverty caused by socialism.

There was Lindsay Perigo for this particularly nauseating tweet about Jacinda Ardern’s baby and for using “fry-quacker”, whatever that is, in a tweet twice.
As amply predicted, the nation's recent happy news is bringing out the worst sexists from under the fridge. https://t.co/dUnoyCnYFo

There was perennial finalist Simon Bridges for his idiotic comments during a blokey interview on Radio Hauraki. Note to Simon being sexist, crass and unfunny in an interview only makes you look like a doofus. No wonder National MPs’ social media about this weekend’s Auckland Regional Conference of the National Party is so quiet. And when erstwhile cheerleaders in the media like Tova O’Brien are utterly scathing about what he said you know National has a problem.
And over in the States there was Mike Huckabee for letting a 13 year old redneck look after his twitter account. At least this is the only logical explanation I have for how this tweet occurred.

His daughter also made the list for gross hypocrisy in getting upset when a restaurant refused to serve her but defending a cake making business that refused to serve a gay couple.
There was the Immigration system in the States for removing kids from their parents and not even keeping track of where the kids were going.
Remarkable reaction from an immigration judge: "He slammed his hand … 'I can’t understand this,' the judge said. 'If someone at the jail takes your wallet, they give you a receipt. They take your kids, and you get nothing? Not even a slip of paper?'"https://t.co/6lwrvwSSiG

But the winner this week is US Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen who on Monday was claiming that the mass taking of kids from their parents was just business as usual and there was nothing they could do short of a law change, and a couple of days later stood behind Trump as he reversed the policy she said they had no power over. She even had the gall this week to go to a Mexican restaurant. And was chased out by Socialists.
I wonder if DPF would have asked them if they also acknowledged the millions who had died or were in poverty because of socialism …
