Rupert Murdoch: Still the Absolute Worst

[Content Note: Racism.]

Last night, conservative media magnate and real-life cartoon villain Rupert Murdoch tweeted this shit in support of Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson:

So, President Obama has been wayyyy too black for conservatives for seven years and now he's not black enough for Rupert Murdoch? Cool.

I think it's super neat when white people who don't believe race is a cultural construct start ranking blackness, without a trace of irony.


It's hard to know what to buy for the billionaire who has everything, but let's all chip in and buy Rupert Murdoch a big bag of STFU. Since he clearly doesn't have one.
