Oh it was totally intentional.

Let's face it, a ton of MAGA supporters are the type that would cheer on the villain in a movie rather then the heroes.

"Joker" didn't just do well because it was a strong narrative piece on the fragility of the human mind, but also because there are a subset of people that idolize him. He is the tantamount incel, never gets the girl, trashed by society, but then starts shooting late night comedy hosts in the head, and is now a hero to the cause, a symbol.

It didn't surprise me that after the Thanos video came out, dozens of people jumped up to explain that Thanos was the good guy doing what was right for the universe, with no prejudice, and carried out the greater good for society to thrive just like Trump is doing. It was inevitable.

People are LOSING THEIR SHIT about Greta getting the "award". One guy on Facebook I saw posted that she was in good company since the award also went to Hitler & Stalin. So of course I responded that Trump & Reagan also got the award so they must be Hitler as well.

I love it when people get the right answer using the wrong equation.

I absolutely don't like Greta Thunberg - I think her style is counter-productive, even if you want aggressive and in-your-face there are better alternatives - but Time Person of the year doesn't need to go to the nicest person of the year, or the best at what they do. It's the person who had the most influence or was most in the news. And, well, it's hard to argue that Greta hasn't been hugely important and dominated the news.

I do t know where the wife found it, but it was a response with a whole list of those false equivalencies intended to shame the OP. Stuff like, “Do you breathe air? I’ll bet you didn’t know Hitler used to breathe air, too!” and stuff like that. It was scathingly hilarious.

That just confirms there was no quid-pro-quo... see, they didn't give him what he wanted and he didn't give them money because of that... it's all "very legal and very cool"™!
