Poor Kevin McCarthy got his tits in an uproar because he thought big bad old Twitter was not letting him read the juicy Right Wing mouth droppings of Laura Ingraham.
But that was not the case.
Courtesy of Salon:
The California Republican sent a tweet on Friday complaining that conservatives were being censored on Twitter. He ordered Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to rectify the issue immediately.
Little did McCarthy know at the time of the tweet that a few, simple clicks of a button on his account’s settings would have enabled him to read Laura Ingraham’s tweet. Many fellow Twitter users pointed out to McCarthy that he was unable to view Ingraham’s tweet because he had the “Hide Sensitive Content” setting turned on. So, no, a shadowy conspiracy to hide conservative content was responsible for the censorship.
Kevin, bless your heart, you have sensitive media filters turned on.

Of course, McCarthy was so easily convinced that there was a conspiracy against him because the whole GOP is now packed to the brim with tin foil hat wearing conspiracy nuts and talk radio addicts.
However, in reality, it was just that he was a fucking idiot.
Which, by the way, is the other thing the GOP is now packed to the brim with.
