Rep. Don Young of Alaska certainly has problems, but wolves aren’t one of them.

At a House Natural Resources Committee hearing this week, Young was complaining about how members of Congress were rallying together to help protect the gray wolf, when they don’t have to deal with them on a regular basis like he does.

“How many of you have got wolves in your district?” he asked. “None. None. Not one.”

And then, likely due to a full moon, he offered up this completely insane proposal.

“I’d like to introduce them to your district,” he said. “You wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore.”

A spokesperson for Young later clarified to the Washington Post that the “analogy was purposely hyperbolic to stress the point that these predators pose serious threats to wildlife management and their listing has damaging impacts to local communities.”

Alaska has “the largest remaining population of gray wolves in the United States,” according to Defenders of Wildlife.

Maybe it's just the timing of these photos and the power of photography, or maybe Michelle Obama is just really really not going to put up with the POTUS's behavior at the Nelson Mandela memorial service. Speaking of which, there's a narrative you can probably craft based on these photos here:

Oh heck no

Likely that narrative is "Barack Obama got up to pee and Michelle stole his spot" but the alternative is just a bit more entertaining.

As Inauguration Day looms heavy on the horizon (this Friday), and Trump's Twitter game only seems to ramp up in its unpresidented ridiculousness, it's only right that we have someone like the Jimmy Kimmel take to the streets to interview the citizenry, and hold a microscope up over something remotely similar to a Bubonic Plague of Ignorance. Oh a quick by the way here: this madness happened before:



Yes, in case anyone out there is watching this video wondering to themselves what the hell the big deal is with these answers...it's this: they are the same damn thing. The Affordable Care Act, and Obamacare = The same. Could we at least have had one person answer correctly. Nah dawg, we gotta stir the pot of stress-ridden hysteria on a regular basis.
