Blue-checked “20 year old financier and political reporter” for Gateway Pundit Jacob Wohl is by no means the brightest bulb out there, but yesterday, he managed to look even dimmer than usual.

I used to think this guy Jacob Wohl was just a dim-witted but energetic zealot, but now I can see that this is a comedy site. Who’s running this? Is it the Onion?
