Steve Stockman

The First Ever Troll to Serve in Congress

There are so many great firsts in American government as we slowly overcome centuries of racism and misogyny. And now, after all these years, we’ve elected the first troll to Congress. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) is blazing a trail for future trolls.

In addition to his Twitter feed which is easily the most institutional display of trolling to come along in years, there’s his hilarious AR15 assault rifle giveaway (Atta boy, Steve! Way to troll those Sandy Hook victims!) and now he’s trolling food stamp recipients by mocking the SNAP system.

Yes, Stockman thinks it’s reasonable to expect poor people to eat dollar store garbage on $31.50 per week. Per week!

Seriously, can we make a national effort to shit-can this guy? He really deserves to be exiled into obscurity. Just about anyone would be suitable replacement. Who’s up for donating money to a Republican primary challenger?
