    Absolutely terrible to see someone directly target two congresspeople for their race and threaten them over it.

    Just kidding. While the title of this thread is directly taken from the New York Times, the article goes on to acknowledge that over the course of 30 minutes, a man made three threatening phone calls. The first was to a white male congressman. The second was to a congresswomen who is of middle eastern descent and was called a member of the Taliban (shitty and racist). The third was to a black male congressman who was called terrible, racist things.

    Just want to remind everyone that people are complicated and the news sucks :)

    Tom Segura and Burt Kreischer were on Truth or Dab and Sean Evans gave Bert three different "Florida Man" scenarios to see if he could tell which ones were real or fake. All three were real and, let's just say, fucking people are stupid as fuck.
