If you didn’t know that Hercules star Kevin Sorbo was a far-right, Trump-supporting conspiracy theorist, then you’ve probably never seen a picture of him. I don’t want to stereotype or anything, but what you don’t see in that image above is that Sorbo tucks his sunglasses into the waistband of his jeans. He also has the same haircut my father had …. in 1991. And if you think I’m being harsh because I’m judging a book by its cover, I do so to illustrate a point: You can’t judge a Trump supporter by the horns on his head, although the Nazi tattoos usually give it away.
They don’t look like patriots to me… https://t.co/ABZG2s0G4v— Kevin Sorbo (@ksorbs) January 6, 2021
Sorbo, like Sean Hannity, Matt Gaetz, and some others, endeavored to suggest that the insurrection on the Capitol was a false-flag operation conducted by Antifa, and while I appreciate that Sorbo at least understood that the insurrection was bad, one had to wonder why Donald Trump kept telling those Antifa insurrectionists that he “loved them” and why did Antifa do exactly what Ted Cruz and Donald Trump and Josh Hawley encouraged them to do?
Lucy Lawless — who starred in Xena, a spin-off of Hercules — shot back at Sorbo, and you can tell by the way she looks that she is a gorgeous, flawless human being who does not support right-wing conspiracy theories. To wit:
No, Peanut. They are not Patriots. They are your flying monkeys,homegrown terrorists, QAnon actors. They are the douchebags that go out and do the evil bidding of people like you who like to wind them up like toys and let them do their worst. #keepingYourFilthyHandsclean #enabler— Lucy Lawless (@RealLucyLawless) January 7, 2021
Ms. Lawless’ Twitter account is fantastic, by the way. She uses Peanut disparagingly quite frequently, and she has a cute, goggle-wearing dog.
The white Trumplings I know in America were raised to believe in their economic supremacy. They have failed to achieve their parents’ level of education or wealth & want to blame someone. Trump, like Hitler, handed them a racist target to punch & de-child. Feel superior at last!— Lucy Lawless (@RealLucyLawless) January 6, 2021

It’s not actually Lawless’ first Twitter victory over Sorbo, either. Here was some delightful shade a couple of years back.
Only in America are legal citizens labeled "racists" and "Nazis," but illegal aliens are called "Dreamers."— Kevin Sorbo (@ksorbs) February 12, 2018

Chrissy Teigen’s response was pretty good, too.
