We’re starting to wonder if one of the requirements for one of those fancy blue checkmarks on Twitter is a complete lack of understanding when it comes to the very basics and fundamentals of our government. And the number of people (hundreds of thousands!) stupid enough to like what they have to say.
Like this ‘winner’ from Rob Delaney.
Yes, two senators from each state is super racist, Rob.

You know the face you make when you *think* your corgi is passing gas but you’re not sure because it could also be your 13-year-old son who is home doing virtual school and keeps laughing like he’s up to something?
Yup, just made that face.

They don't even understand the two houses of Congress.

BECAUSE IT’S RACIST!!!
California has its equal representation by population… In the House. That's not the purpose of the Senate. These things should have been part of you 8/9th grade civics course.
Of course, the 17th amendment kinda screwed that up.

Repeal the 17th.
You (and 111,000 other public school victims) don’t know how basic government works. Embarrassing.
Senators represent STATES
House members represent PEOPLE
Here’s a handy chart showing House members by state for you to share with your friends: pic.twitter.com/38EISZT4k8

Break out the puppets and crayons, folks.
(2) Break up California.

This just isn't right, Rob! We need to make sure there's a separate yet equally powerful body that gives representation based on population! All important things like impeachment should start there!
We could call it "The Chamber of Representatives"

I’m sorry public school failed you so badly

Have you ever considered taking a civics class? You might find it extremely beneficial.

This is a feature, not a bug. Dumbass.

There are 50 states. Each state gets two Senators. The Senators represent the states, not the populace.
The House is apportioned by population.
How many Representatives does Ca have?

Read a book, dude.
Just make sure it’s an actual Civics book.
