This is BETO-level awkward. Even his handler couldn’t rush him out of there fast enough.
For those of you on Twitter, there’s a meme out there right now that fits this situation perfectly.
It has a few variations that go more or less like this…
No one: …
Literally no one: …
Absolutely no one: …
(insert ridiculous idea / action / statement here)
That’s what happened on Yang’s campaign.
For an outsider, he’s been doing a pretty good job of building up some fans (perhaps for next time around), and not embarrassing himself too badly. (Apart from the obvious issue of running on a Democrat ticket which requires adherence to some indefensible ideas.)
But he’s trying to come across as cool and relatable.
He did the skateboard thing, like Beto did: Sad Day For Beto — First He LIVESTREAMS A Flu Shot, Then Yang Steals His Mojo
And now he’s doing… well something different.
Judge for yourself:
We can’t possibly be the only ones who made this word association:
Kneel before Zod!
The handler is thinking Dear God, please get us out of here before this gets any worse. https://t.co/Ixo7pCDCRc

Can you imagine if Freud were still around to opine on this interaction?
