Rupert Murdoch certainly isn’t shy about asking questions, and today’s he’s curious how a 400-pound woman in New York City who fell through a sidewalk managed to get so large.

Ulanda Williams broke her arm in two places in the fall last Friday but told the New York Post that her weight actually saved her from being injured even more seriously. The Post and other news outlets identify Williams as a social worker, making Murdoch’s query about how the “fat lady” gained so much weight on welfare and food stamps even less tactful.

“Anti-bullying activist” Dan Savage was quick to answer Murdoch’s tweet with a similar level of class.

Could someone who reads Savage’s “Savage Love” sex advice column regularly please let us know if that’s intended as an insult?

Before stepping away from the keyboard, Murdoch managed to turn his attention to another matter.

The Constitution is correct about the right to own guns for hunting? Maybe Murdoch should step away from Twitter and ask Piers Morgan if he can borrow that “little book” for review.

    Only group in the U S with modern weapons of war are the military.

  • GTFOBigGovt

    People who did not become full throated citizens of our country (like patriot Mark Steyn) really need to STFU.

  • J.N. Ashby

    Murdoch’s actually wrong. We ARE allowed to own modern weapons of war under the Constitution, if we can get our hands on them.

    • TomJB

      Yep! And when the Constitution was written the most common modern weapons of war were the musket and smooth bore cannon, both owned by most (former) and some (latter) private citizens. Since all the founders were among the brightest of their time and many were inventors, they understood that technology advances over time. That they didn’t use the word “muskets” in the Constitution should tell you all you need to know.

        Fun fact: Wealthy people donated their yachts to the military during WW1 as naval vessels…but citizens aren’t allowed to have the same shit as the military, oh no…

    • justlittlolme

      Murdoch is just another ignorant ass with money enough to buy his own platform.

      Private individuals once owned warships for the purpose of enforcing Letters of Marquis and Reprisal and the primary purpose of the Bills of Attainder provison was to keep government from confiscating them in times of War!

      These people REALLY make me wish stupidity was painful!

      • J.N. Ashby

        But they were free to donate them, which they did in WW1.

    you know, you might be too fat if the ground can no longer support your weight.

    The only positive thing I can say about Murdoch is he at least has the good sense not to read his own paper.

    Maybe he forgot and thought it was owned by Jews: http://bit.ly/ZPCu8F

    Though, I am curious why Mr. Murdoch thought Ulanda Williams might be on food stamps…oh, it’s right on the tip of my tongue, could it be, oh, I don’t know….SATAN?!

    I agree with Joe Briggs, Esq. It wasn’t cool at all bruh. Seriously stupid tweet to make for absolutely no reason.

    Not to contradict or support Murdoch, but having been to some of the poorest countries on earth, America is one of the few where “poor” people can be extremely fat. That said, the poor people worldwide wish they were poor Americans.

    That comment was disgusting and polarizing.

    Interpretation of United States vs. Miller 1939: “Ownership of weapons for efficiency or preservation of a well-regulated
    militia unit of the present day is specifically protected.”

    I’m starting to think Rupert just says these things to drive liberals nuts, just so he (and we) can have a good laugh at their foaming-at-the-mouth responses. He certainly knows what buttons to push.

    shes a social worker. not sure why he didn’t even ascertain she was employed.
