Too soon: Lizz Winstead takes a stab at political tornado humor; Update: Apologizes

https://twitter.com/lizzwinstead/status/336580629191856128

The mile-wide tornado that destroyed Moore, Okla., and leveled at least two elementary schools was still weaving a path of devastation when Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead thought up a funny. Too soon?

There’ll be time to worry about the victims later, but this tornado was a perfect “teachable moment” to point out the hypocrisy driving the GOP’s ongoing Obama witch hunt. Here’s the setup:

We’re still waiting to hear about fatalities as survivors pick through the rubble, but we have news of our first casualty.

* * *

For what it’s worth, here’s Winstead’s apology tweet.

          There is no such thing as a humane or smart liberal. You give them far too much credit.

      • QAX3kFmH

        Don’t say that, It against the law to criticize liberals self-destructive, self absorbent okiophobic behavior. You know… because of how tolerant they are to everyone.

      • v1cious

        Yeah like that one douchebag that was on TV blaming lack of prayer in schools for the Sandy Hook shooting. What was his name? Oh yeah, that was Mike Huckabee.

      Key words of hers: “Had I understood…”
      Right. It’s only a matter of minutes after a tornado, or any natural disaster, hits that the devastation can be assessed.

      She’s far too stupid to be a dumbass.
      She’s a thoughtless asswipe.

      • aegean1

        As I tweeted to her, in response to her “apology,” it was a f****** tornado, not a unicorn parade! Making any sort of joke about it was just plain stupid. If she’s THAT stupid, she should have someone check her tweets before she sends them out.

        • grais

          Yeah, and #LetMeHaveIt. More sickness. I know people like that…’yell at me and I’ll feel punished and I’ll forget all about what I did.’ She should have outgrown that bs by now.
          She’s a horrid creature.

      could it be the hypocrisy of being a member of the political persuasion who is more loving, more kind, more tolerant, more empathetic, and more accepting, making fun of a tragic situation?

      • twolaneflash

        I have a dear friend with 11 children. He said to me before #7 was born that he didn’t want to be standing before his Maker and be told: “I had some more blessings for you, but you refused to take them.”. I know what he means.

        • legalcitizen

          hope we are not supporting your friend with 11 children. We can’t afford anymore taxes. Has he heard of contraception? Maybe you could educate him?

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        I don’t go to the movies that much anymore either. I’m a big comic book fan, and I go to see the comic movies when they come out, but other than that, I don’t waste my money padding the pockets of heartless liberals.

        • Stone Bryson

          After Joss Whedon – whom I used to love – made his political (a covertly bigoted anti-Mormon) ad during the 2012 campaign… now, I cannot enjoy many comic-book movies. Still have not seen ‘The Avengers’ because the money would go into Joss’ bank account.

            Honestly Caroline, I have been making every effort to avoid TV. Not always successful (my love of cheezy Syfy productions knows no bounds), but that aside? I’ve been mostly successful turning off the tube more often than turning on.

          • Caroline Williams

            SyFy is always a treat! They’re nearly never political (that I’ve been able to see) and I continue to hold out hope that I’ll get a movie there soon!

        No good movies coming out of Hollywood any more. I also haven’t been to the movies in about 10 years.. broken only once. Good movies were those that didn’t embarrass you so that you have to protect your children. Disgusting. Is this worm on HBO?

      • Ryan Cox

        As a 20-something, your assertion is bemusing. No one takes the Daily Show seriously. That’s the point of it. Please stop trying to speak for people you have no association with.

        I would never argue her comments were anything other than deplorable. But yours are uninformed contrivance.

        • Ronald Green

          • mark kelley

            I was having a political argument with someone not long ago. Other than her politics, she seemed to have a good head on her shoulders.
            Finally exasperated, I asked her” where do you get your news?”
            Her answer, mostly the daily show and steven Colbert…..

          • Ryan Cox

            That’s unfortunate. And a bit stupid. However, it doesn’t justify lumping all teens and 20-somethings together and claiming they all get their news from The Daily Show. My saying that “no one takes The Daily Show seriously” was an intentional generalization, in attempt to point out the absurdity of Ms. Kent’s statement.

            My point is not that some 20-somethings don’t get their news from the show. It is, however, that a 35-year old(?) woman can’t accurately speak about something of which she has nothing but presumption.

          • Ryan Cox

            “Them” and “they”, whoever these people maybe, might well have said this to you. However, I wasn’t replying to your post.

            My reason for posting was to contradict a generalization, and a speculative one, at that.

One of my concerns about where the media continues down the path. Just because you don’t care, doesn’t mean that the rest of us share your feelings. People should care about people! Just a little thing that my church taught me when I was a child. I still believe it is true.

    SOmebody should have told her the truth…That tornado was ordered to target her face!

    I’m sorry doesn’t fix everything. There are people so desperate for attention, they’ll say and do anything. She’s a member of the club.

  • James Paul

    People who live in what has been called “Tornado Alley” probably do not affix political inclinations to the weather. She was probably telling the truth though, just made a joke about it before all the bad news came in. It is not uncommon for tornadoes to rampage through some places and almost no one gets hurt, especially in places like Oklahoma and Texas… Bad weather, bad things happening, and a bad joke…

      Yeah right – except a tornado had just touched down the day before in Shawnee, and killed 2, lot’s of devastation. Huffington post reported on it. It’s not like it was a secret. It wasn’t a bad joke it was a nasty snide remark.

    As the left goes, this morning she’s probably a hero over @ MSNBC. Lizz has been desensitized to disasters though — she IS one.

    Only a liberal following the vein of her heros/thugs at the WH and their “never let a tragedy go to waste” mentality. Gee, where were the jokes during Sandy, guess the people of OK are less human and only deserve hate filled lame idiots like this to add to their tragedy.

    It’s like the wrong people are being punished for the sins of KING FINK OBAMA, and Lizz Winstead jokes about this tragedy! Last I heard, there were 51 dead, many of them were children, and an ENTIRE TOWN was ripped apart by the storm….We should PRAY for the Victims, not MAKE JOKES! #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D}

    Beck is better than I am, because I almost want to cast a stone at her head. Almost. Her pathetic “jokes” aren’t worth it. People need help in Moore and Winstead can go to hell.

  • cscape

    This line from her wikipedia bio….. “Winstead was the youngest child born into a conservative Catholic family, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.”…. Gee, ya think her HATE goes back to her CHILDHOOD???

    • LL15

      No

  • Jeff

    Wow she has taken the term Piece of Shit to a Whole New Level…………

  • Kent_JA58

    Maybe if Oklahoma didn’t hate the Government and have one of its’ Senators calling for the impeachment (oh wait, he insinuated it), Liberals wouldn’t be so quick to poke holes in their sanctimonious “Holier than thou,” attitude. And, as a friend of mine pointed out last night, Oklahoma is about to become the most liberal state in the country.

    • Shelah Wik

      You’re an imbecile…

  • Nerinab

    Beck is being quite gracious, but really, I can’t remember every uttering a joke like Winstead’s. And she should feel awful. For a long time.

  • Shelah Wik

    You nasty piece of garbage! Do you actually think your apology means anything to the people who lost their babies yesterday ? The fact that you would even make a “joke” like you did in the first place, proves how much of a soul-less evil b!t@h you are..

  • VerminMcCann

    “In hindsight, had I understood, I would have refrained. Beyond sorry.”

    If she understood, she wouldn’t be a liberal.

  • Kevin Scott

    Typical Liberal. Makes a beyond-crass, grossly inappropriate joke but it’s our fault for not recognizing its genius. It’s never THEIR fault; their intellect supercedes any culpability.

  • http://twitter.com/texascher Cherilyn Wood

    As a conservative, I say leave the blowing sh*t out of proportion to the Libs. They’re clearly better at it.

  • Joe Squid

    “Twas before devastation revealed” Oh, so if only 2 or 3 children died, that would be okey-dokey, then? Where do you draw your comedy line? 10 dead? 20??? Still maintain that you are disgusting and vile piece of human filth! :-(

    No, you’re just using them for a left-wing agenda. That’s what the left does.

    Newtown—-check.

    Boston Marathon–check.

    Texas explosion–check.

  • JR48

    I get what Glenn is trying to say but not this time. I’m sort of done with the whole burnt earth leftist attitude and then the lame apology that means nothing. If someone acts in a subhuman fashion, you call them on it.

  • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

    I love how they always back track and say “Oh I’m sorry, I didn’t know it was that bad.” Like its ever alright for anyone to make fun of a natural disaster.

  • Judy B

    This was an assault tornado, government must ban them.

  • http://twitter.com/Scott_A_Hewitt Scott Hewitt

    Don’t be too hard on @Lizzwinstead. She tweeted with the best available information that she had at the time.

    • Caroline Williams

      Eff her! How many conservatives tweeted out BS after Sandy hit? “NJ can suckit, Sandy!” Never heard of it, never saw it, ’cause it didn’t happen. Who’s nicer now, Scott?

      • http://twitter.com/Scott_A_Hewitt Scott Hewitt

        Calm down – my comment was meant to be a shot at Winstead via reference to Susan Rice. Obviously a fail on my part.

        • Caroline Williams

          Oh, I get it. . . I forgot Rice’s BS.

  • MPCpiano

    This is a window into the heart and mind of a media liberal.

    One good thing about Twitter, it let’s the tasteless tacky thoughts of the left be revealed to the world, with no filter from the media or press agents. (And if they delete it, that’s what Twitchy is for.)

    I like glenn, but he really needs to stop being the morals cop.

      No kidding. When the opposition is being torched, and their cheesy political show is taking it on the chin, you stand out of the way. . .

    Lizz Winstead apologizes for a political “joke”?? Any disaster, huge devastation or not, should not be the fuel for jokes. This was beyond repugnant!

  • Andy walters

    Hey Glen Beck, you may piss off also, there is nothing funny about what happen in OK, further more you guys saying that she made the statement before you all found out the damages that was cause is not enough, maybe some things should be left out of jokes,

  • Guest

    I feel sorry for liberals like Lizz Winstead. To be that soulless and cold hearted. Praying for those in need.

    If the Moore-County-destroying tornado was a misguided missile, isn’t it more plausible it was intended for Michael Moore, who is approximately the same size and color?
