As Twitchy reported earlier, David Brooks took a picture of a very expensive meal at the airport claiming THAT was why the economy was bad and yeah, that didn't go so hot for the out-of-touch elitist. Not at all.
What made it even worse though was when Community Notes showed up.
Community Notes for the win!— Sandy 〽️ (@RightGlockMom) September 21, 2023
And, Brooks is a lush. https://t.co/ig0oB2JZNw
Did he think booze would be cheap at an AIRPORT?!
And $17 for a burger and fries isn't actually all that bad.

The Community Notes on Brooks' tweet says that the burger and fries cost $17 (which sounds right), making his tweet all the more mysterious. If it was satire, it didn't land. If it was meant to be serious, it made absolutely no sense. pic.twitter.com/kJ1jsseDIC— James Surowiecki (@JamesSurowiecki) September 21, 2023
Embrace the power of and - this didn't land AND it made absolutely no sense.

1. This might be the greatest community note of all time
2. Mr. Brooks might be an alcoholic https://t.co/61cyjRyK3U
Considering some of the Community Notes we've seen, that says A LOT.
Okay, now that David Brooks has gotten a Community Note showing that the food part of his $78 meal only cost $17... I NEED TO KNOW what's in the glass. https://t.co/pQ0lI7e19O— Craig Harrington (@Craigipedia) September 21, 2023
According to community notes, burger and fries at the Smokehouse Restaurant in Newark Terminal A, cost $17— Jay Wolf 🇺🇦 (@nodirtpolitics) September 21, 2023
David Brooks ordered double shots of whiskey, $50
Total $78 including taxes.
Stop getting drunk at the airport, David https://t.co/MHqJN4Hj1i
Or at least stop lying about what your meal cost for clicks and taps on X.
Community Notes FTW.— Mike Friedman (@MFriedmanNOLA) September 21, 2023
Brooks is a liar. What a surprise. He's one of the most tedious talking heads out there. He has no idea of anything outside his upper middle class white bubble thinks or does.
He's tediously pious but has the requisite MUCH younger 2nd wife.
He's a boor. pic.twitter.com/4J19erjjDx
And a much-deserved ouch at that.
Editor's Note: Hi there. I know it's been some time since we changed this up but changing it up now to see if any of you read this far. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
