Joyce Carol Oates is now on Substack and this editor just saw a deal on her Masterclass on novel writing. To us, she’s always been a master of bad tweets. In case you hadn’t heard, a 6-year-old child shot a teacher in Newport News the other day. The child was arrested and the teacher is expected to live. It happened inside the classroom and police say it was planned.
For some reason, this is supposed to remind us that Winsome Sears is the state’s lieutenant governor.
When you’re reading stories about the Newport News shooting don’t forget this is Virginia’s LT Governor👇 pic.twitter.com/WEE7IefidC

Sears is a badass who served in the Marines and supports Second Amendment rights. That’s why she’s posing with the rifle. It’s not a candid action shot from the battlefield. But Oates is (playing?) dumb by thinking Sears is preparing to shoot something.
who/whom is she supposed to be shooting?
she’s wearing no protective gear so the assumption is that the target isn’t armed; she is in no danger. https://t.co/zrrJ73JKyw

Joyce Carol Oates is exposing the Lt Gov of Virginia’s scheme to hunt down innocent citizens, but you’re all too busy making jokes about Kevin McCarthy to notice https://t.co/A4f200PIH1

I thought famous people are supposed to be smart?
Why does social media always have to illumate just how pathetically dumb most celebrities are?

I think she’s hunting animals again from that park. What was it called, Jurassic Park?

Oh, yeah, maybe she’s hunting endangered dinosaurs.
So barbaric that this should still be allowed… No conservation laws in effect wherever this is? https://t.co/hgavm9IBaM

Joyce, by the looks of it @WinsomeSears is using her 2nd Amendment rights to hunt helpless dinosaurs! 🦖🦖
I hear this barbaric practice is still legal as YOU pointed out a few years ago!👇😜https://t.co/zzWzgEri2r

“She is in no danger.” So only carry a gun when you’re certain you’re going to need it? And put on protective gear every time you leave the house.
‘Is this a JOKE?’ Joyce Carol Oates’ nutty defense of cowardly sheriff’s deputy is a HOT MESS https://t.co/4NDSD5FjaX
