US Government is WWIII Curious – Thursday Throwdown
The place to get your exclusive dose of midweek media madness.
This week, we came our closest yet to getting a break from politics with the sweet relief of total nuclear Armageddon.
When a missile hit Poland, the US and Ukraine rush to blame Russia, ready to trigger NATO Article 5 and commence an attack, a move that would surely lead to unleashing untold war. There was almost glee in the tweets of Zelensky and US diplomats who have grown blue-balled being forced to keep their nuclear safeties on.
Sadly though for the US war machine, it became clear that the missile was actually an errant Ukrainian weapon, not Russian, and the US was forced to de-escalate, saving us all from the end of the world. And now we’re stuck listening to more speeches from Biden, Blinken, Zelensky, aaaaaand…
Trump. Make America Great Again Once Again For the Third Time. This week, we got an epic new 2024 speech from the former president who’s fired up with new nicknames, a deadly new policy, and a lot of love.
And finally, Aaron gets cancelled by a certain Ukrainian first lady. Can you guess which?
There’s so much to make fun of, which means it’s more important than ever that Useful Idiots is here to do what we do best.
It’s our Thursday mini-episode. Let us know in the comments what corporate media monologues, interviews, or anything else you want to see on the next Thursday Throwdown.
