Touré falls for faketastic Hurricane Sandy photo, well-deserved mockage ensues; Updated

As Twitchy reported yesterday, Hurricane Sandy has spawned a flood of fake disaster photos. And tonight, smarter-than-you race-baiting 9/11 truther and MSNBC contributor Touré fell for one of them. Hard.

The mockage was swift and glorious:

Share photos on twitter with Twitpic

Praise. Jeebus.

Lo and behold, Touré tried to cover his tracks:

Neither is Touré. About anything. But the backpedaling came too late; the damage was done.

Oh, but we did. And damn, it felt good.



Rut-roh … somebody’s cranky!

He got “dissed” because he matters? That’s one way to look at it. Unfortunately for him, it’s the wrong way. Touré got dissed because his prized pair of smartypants is full of holes.

We hope he enjoys the “conpliment.”

To be fair, coherence was never Touré’s strong suit. He is a 9/11 truther, after all.




Touré’s delusion has reached new heights: he is now convinced that Twitchy CEO Michelle Malkin is in love with him. No, really:

Oh. Dear. Lord.

But the entertainment value is through the roof. Don’t stop now, Touré. We’re having way too much fun.

  • Scott

    Way too much kool aid.

  • Ben Bollman

    Toure is the worst kind of idiot

  • KateNE

    He is very dumb. That’s all.

  • Pete Futz

    Toure wins the Dumbass of the Year Award!!

    • r_coplin2001

      I dont know about that as it would be close as their are several other dumbasses working at MSNBC.

      • Pete Futz

        True that.

  • Brett McMicken

    it goes without saying that it was racist of those tweeters to point it out to him.

    • Brett McMicken

      by the way, it also goes without saying that the romney campaign used bain funds to create that photoshop that he fell for

      • TugboatPhil

        Either that or Bain bought out the guy that did the Photoshop and put him out of business and gave his wife cancer.

        • Brett McMicken

          i forgot about that! he also put her in a binder.

          • celsma

            couldn’t fit Fluke’s contraception in there somewhere?

          • Brett McMicken

            that’s a loaded question

        • Maria

          Then Ryan pushed the guy’s granny who was in a wheelchair over a cliff.

      • Rella

        didn’t Bain cause the storm? It’s a plot to make New York go red!

        • Brett McMicken

          actually, it was a plot to plausibly deplete the tampon supply by using them to soak up the floodwaters. you didn’t know that bain had a weather control satellite in orbit, did you?

      • RadicalRebelWhoMeToo

        IT WAS BUSH DAMMIT!!! IT WAS BbbbUuuuSsssHhhhhh!!!

      • tomtom1983

        Lol!! And that Sandy proves God votes Democrat.

        • Stephanie Warren

          and this proves you’re a nimrod.

  • vermontaigne

    Mockage. Soon sorcery will be sorcage and penury penage.

    • Duke Brooks

      …and calumny ‘calumnage?’

  • Penny Robinson Fan Club

    Nice picture though!

  • tjp77

    If the subway was filled with enough water to scuba dive through, it woud most definitely NOT be bright blue crystal clear water. It would be cloudy black toxic sludge.

  • TugboatPhil

    I think I will now refer to him as Douche’.

    • Brett McMicken

      that would imply he is useful

      • lainer51


  • Steve_J

    The “that’s why it’s incredible. Cuz it’s not credible.” is such a lame response. He should have just let it go.

  • Ken Alan Draper

    I can’t figure the 9/11 truthers. the event was witnessed by literally tens of thousands of people on the scene, yet they still try to make it some kind of James bond style plot. somehow they gutted the entire building & hauled in & set up a hundreds of pounds of explosives, & ran det cord to the charges without anyone in the building noticing.

    • TundraThunder

      Good morning Mr. Phelps.

      As always, should you or any of your IM force be caught or killed, the
      Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. Good luck, Jim.
      This tape will self-destruct in five seconds.

  • Love of Country

    IMHO, like Al Sharpton and others before him, Toure` has gone pretty far on the contents and merits of his skin color over there at MS-DogWhistle-NBC..

  • stuckinIL4now

    Anybody show Toure the one of the shark swimming around on a flooded street in NJ?

    • Matt Robinson

      i feel like, even thought that picture is fake, it is a possibility. think about it, in seaside there is no barrier to the sea anymore, not even a minute land break, the sea and the streets are one entity. i wonder if any large marine animals have made their way into city limits

  • PeterP

    The only reason Toure couldn’t tell the photo was fake was because of racism.

  • RanierWest

    We should all be ashamed of ourselves for being #Sandy Truthers… That was a real photo! LOL! Toure is F’ing pathetic.

  • disqus_BktOMwqkBg

    Credible = believable. Incredible = so outlandish that it is difficult to believe. Non-credible = Toure

  • Paul C.

    This guy is on TV, LOL talk about a dumb racist liberal

  • AttackOfTheKillerTomatos

    I’ve seen people get fooled by better photoshop jobs than this, but come on… It doesn’t take much common sense to know that water and electricity do not work together like that. That should have been the first clue.

    This is why we can’t have nice things in this country, because this is the msm at its finest.

  • Duke Brooks

    The overhead fluorescent lights, still ‘on’ while ‘underwater,’ are only one giveaway. Nice photoshop job, though!

  • Typewriterstreaming

    What’s even more shocking is that anyone in the “news business” thinks he actually deserves a job.


    And he’s at the top of the IQ chart at MSNBC

    • lainer51

      mentored by Matthews!

  • Cosmic Girl

    This guy votes. Scary!

  • Pontiac Pete

    Guy only has one name because he’s not smart enough to remember two.

    • Maria

      The little accent over the “e” is too complicated for him.

  • FedUp With Zero


  • CrustyB

    The picture…like Toure’s perpetual charges of racism…is fake.

  • Typewriterstreaming

    You got dissed because you are an arrogant jerk. Wake up.

  • BobTheUmp

    Please someone send him a picture of Guam capsizing because all of the Marines stationed on one side of the island…

  • billsbowl

    Visibilty is pretty darn good down there, eh Toure?

  • $5326605

    The douchebag also beleives Obama deserves a second term. The idiot believes in all kinds of fake things and people. Appologies to actual douchebags for insulting the bags by comparing Toure to them.

  • People Corporation

    Same guy that thinks the BC was real.

  • Barri Park

    The Janitorial service there is awesome ! The electricians are pretty amazing too , Clean and the lights on even submerged in flood waters .

  • dmacleo

    first thing that caught my eye was the TWO bubble trails (one above the & in sign) for ONE diver.
    then I saw the lights, shadows, clear water, etc.

  • Anthony

    This guy should not be talking politics, he’s barely qualified to introduce a 2 chains video on 106& park…

  • gooms

    Well, everything on MSNBC is real, right? No wonder he believes something so obviously fake.

  • Leroy Whitby

    Hey Toure, if you are a truther, have you considered that maybe the scuba diver was underneath the twin towers and about to blow them up. That makes more sense than the giant airplanes that crashed into them.

  • Maria

    @Toure cracks me up with almost every tweet he makes. About that scuba diver photo: Of course he fell for it. He sees Obama as a good president, so he’ll believe just about anything that comes his way that is outlandish. He must be a mild form of Schizophrenic though, thinking Mrs. Malkin is in love with him, though.. I’m sure she likes men who have good character, personality, morals, and looks..none of which Toure posseses.

    Now cue Liberal hater comments that are predictable in nature, especially about sentences #3, #4, and #5.

  • Guest

    I fell for that one too. =3= I feel stupid.

  • golftilidrop

    scuba diver= racist dog whistle.

  • Jamie Wilson

    And these people think we’re dumb because we demand scientific rigor be applied to global climate change theory? Wow.

  • Kate

    I checked out this guy’s Twitter feed, and WOW, does he live in a fantasy land. Check it out if you want to see the personification of denial.

  • Scott

    You dont diss Michelle, because you are not able!
    And no, you’re not in second grade anymore it doesn’t mean we like you when we insult you. It means we don’t like you, respect you, trust you or give a tinkers Damn about what you say or think.

  • NoMoreGrapeKoolAid

    Typical MSNBC twit, can’t spell, dumb as a box of rocks and thinks he is all that!

  • Jd1367

    Makes you wonder if he goes by just one name because he’s not bright enough to remember two

  • mike_in_kosovo

    “That’s why it’s incredible. Because it’s not credible.”
    So, it’s on par with his reportage?

  • Zefal

    Unlike the subway’s lights in the photo, Touré’s lights aren’t on.

  • Pontiac Pete

    What a dummé

  • Jesus Rivera

    You know, Toure, sometimes when that girl in the playground calls you stupid, is not cause she likes you, IT IS CAUSE YOU REALLY ARE STUPID

  • littleones

    Ha ha ha … Who is he, anyway… ?

  • tomtom1983

    I am shocked the lame stream media didn’t attempt to spin this fraudulent photo for their messiah.

    **** BREAKING NEWS*****

    “Barack Obama takes time off from campaigning to personally search for any remaining voters still undecided and trapped in the subway.”

    Shameful and sad.

  • R0nin

    The laughing at Tourrets’ expense is valid. Always. Use of the “Praise Jeebus” meme? Not so much. It’s pretty offensive, actually, for those not yet lulled into acceptance by its overuse on the internet.

  • lainer51

    I showed that picture to my 3 y/o and he pointed to the diver and said “fake”!

  • lainer51

    You are as clear as the water in the subway!!!!!!!! LMAO!!!

  • mhojai

    Goes a long way to show this racist clod’s credentials on MSNBC …Maddow, Matthews, him …truly scraping the bottom of the gene pool …

  • trekmyer

    Even the lowly, pretentious Rolling Stone “magazine” couldn’t keep this guy around for long—-they fired his a__. But soon afterward, the genius programmers at msnbc saw a continuous color photo-op by hiring this brilliant mind before he got away to greener fields like cnn.

  • r_coplin2001

    When Toure said that Michelle Malkin was stalking him he got the first name correct but the wrong last name as it wasnt Michelle Malkin that was stalking him it was Michelle Obama

  • world’s greatest orator

    Is this guy fully paid up in Mark Halperin’s Gang of 500, I wonder
