Republican Senator Ben Sasse is kind of a dick, politically speaking. He’s what I guess one would call a principled conservative — like, I don’t agree with him politically, but he’s consistent, and I think he comes about his political opinions honestly. He’s also a frequent Trump critic, so I can’t hate on him. Still, like I said, he’s kind of a dick. Like, he recently released a book about how we’re all raising our kids to be little shits or something. Emily read it. Here was her take this a.m.:

Can we talk about Ben Sasse’s book? Because it’s fucking terrible. The first thing he does is talk about how his kids are little bitches because they were pissed when the air conditioner went out in the middle of summer. Then he talks about how air conditioning is a luxury that his kids should learn to live without. Which is cool because the last book I got done reading was about the 739 people who died in a Chicago heatwave. They probably should have stopped being such bitches about it.

See, kind of a dick? But as a parent, sometimes I find myself agreeing with him re: raising our kids as “bitches.” Like, my son, he wanted to go to NYC to see the Statue of Liberty for his birthday. My wife and I agreed to take him, but obviously we weren’t going to tell him that until his birthday, so he spent a month whining and complaining because he thought we weren’t going to take him, and I’m like, “Fuck you, kid! I went on one vacation once my ENTIRE childhood, and it was to a hillbilly amusement park (now abandoned) and we slept in the goddamn car and you’re complaining because you can’t go to fucking Ellis Island?” I got so angry with him that I made him make his own breakfasts for a whole three weeks before I took that duty back, because we are clearly raising “little bitches.”

What I’m saying is, Ben Sasse’s book is basically every parent who gets angry at their entitled kids and threatens to make them go live in their mother’s trailer park for a week so they’ll gain some goddamn perspective.

No, just me?

Whatever. Point being, Senator Ben Sasse talked shit to Richard Spencer on Twitter today and it was kind of amazing.

Get a real job, Clown! YES!

Also, I thought Twitter banned Richard Spencer? And now they let him back? THIS IS WHY PEOPLE HATE TWITTER, TWITTER!
