What’s this about a “crazy gun stunt” at CPAC? Did Sen. Mitch McConnell shoot an apple off the head of Sen. Tom Coburn? That would be a pretty crazy stunt.

Upon closer inspection, it turns out that McConnell presented an antique rifle to the retiring senator as thanks for his “wonderful service” to the country. Or, as “Harold and Kumar” actor (and former associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement) Kal Penn put it in this limp tweet:


Maybe they can all go skeet shooting with President Mom Jeans soon and measure their guns against his. After all, up at Camp David, the president goes skeet shooting “all the time.”

That’s almost as hilarious as Joe Biden’s line about not being able to go into “a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.” Learn from the comedy master, Mr. Penn.

Editor’s note: We’ve amended the post to clarify that Penn is a former associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement.
