As Twitchy reported, Sen. Bob Dole passed away early Sunday morning at the age of 98. There were plenty of distasteful takes from blue-checks on the Left, but we’re not sure what point Intercept investigative reporter Ken Klippenstein thought he was making. On hearing of Dole’s death, he put together a patchwork of headlines connecting Dole to “big tobacco” and seems to suggest that, ironically, smoking killed him.

I think the point here is that cigarettes are a longevity drug

The absolute state of journalism today, @theintercept edition.
1. Extremely gross to mock someone who just died.
2. He lived to be 98 years old anyway, so I don’t think these screenshots make the point you think you are making. pic.twitter.com/cNY90oV8Zb

LOL He played himself.
So many on the left love mocking the dead. Really shows their character.

He lived to 98 with war wounds these soyboy cupcakes would have never survived.

He died at 98 surrounded by loved ones. He won dude

I don't think this is making the point you think it's making

How did you not delete this yet lmao
— PhillyCaralho (@CaralhoPhilly) December 5, 2021
As said above, this is the worst dunk ever.
