I’m sure some of you have heard about the parody Twitter accounts that pose as Devin Nunes’ cow and also his mom. Nunes has sued Twitter over defamation and a judge has since issued the following ruling:
“No reasonable person would believe that Devin Nunes’ cow actually has a Twitter account, or that the hyperbole, satire and cow-related jokes it posts are serious facts. It is self-evident that cows are domesticated livestock animals and do not have the intelligence, language, or opposable digits needed to operate a Twitter account. Defendant ‘Devin Nunes’ Mom’ likewise posts satirical patronizing, nagging, mothering comments which ostensibly treat Mr. Nunes as a misbehaving child.”
This is America in 2019. What a time to be alive.
