My approach to politics is simple. Never take it too seriously. Yeah, I write ranting political content as a source of income, but I try to couch that in sarcasm and snark as often as I can to bring a little levity to the insanity that permeates from our political environment on a daily basis.
That’s why I really enjoy The Babylon Bee, and while they typically put out quality content, they absolutely won the internet with their latest piece of satire.

During his first report last night at the Kenosha riots, the dog stood in front of a tire fire and reported to both of CNN’s faithful viewers that “this is fine.” A brick flew over his head and a Molotov cocktail lit his face on fire, melting the flesh from his bones. “This is fine,” he assured the viewers.
CNN dutifully changed its chyron to read THIS IS FINE for the entire report, as well, saying they will hold that caption for the remainder of the riots.
You see, it’s funny because it’s true. Really, really true.
Trump's efforts to label what is happening in major cities as "riots" speaks at least somewhat to his desperation, politically speaking, at the momenthttps://t.co/tQJ495xOZK pic.twitter.com/vs19vtCHiW

You cannot make this up… A CNN reporter is standing in front of a building engulfed in flames and CNN's chyron reads:

We almost don’t need parody sites with reality this entertaining, but the Bee figured out a way to up the ante. We’ll see how long it is before they get banned from Twitter again for spreading “misinformation.”
