Right-wing professional troll Toni Lauren — no, wait, is it Torrence Larpen? Turgid Largeham? Tomi Lahren? — has taken to Twitter yet again to weigh in, and I can already hear you groaning involuntarily from all the way over here.
At this point, Trump’s specific brand of macho posturing is par for the course, but it’s Lerfen’s response—what she clearly imagined was a witty rejoinder to Team Biden’s tweet — that’s worth examining.
It’s the type of retrograde, low-stakes insult we should all agree to permanently table, the implication being that Biden is somehow less manly than Trump because he’s willing to admit a virus that’s killed over 200,000 Americans is worth taking seriously. Sick burn, man! You really showed him.
Might as well carry a purse with that mask, Joe. https://t.co/RugCFkC1GQ

Tomi Lahren being flexed on by firefighters is my kind of Tuesday tweet. https://t.co/Pnrv43ZnZM

Kayleigh McEnany, Tomi Lahren, Kellyanne Conway, Ann Coulter & Laura Ingraham walk into a bar…

This is my big mask . I wear it as I sit in the ICU as my mom is dying on a ventilator.
You want to say anything to me hot shot ??
You want to know what my father’s mask looks like ?
Or would you rather see the photo of my mom with the tube down her throat . pic.twitter.com/0iQ8QMxLib

If carrying a purse stopped Covid, I would gladly give every man I saw a purse from my own house. When I run out, I will buy more to give out. Because some people care about human life @TomiLahren , you Typhoid Mary bitch https://t.co/sErcswjYw1

Fellas, is it gay to protect your community from a life threatening illness that’s already killed 210K Americans?
