Sebastian Gorka Suckered By Obvious Parody Account, Believes Nintendo Is Promoting Incest

Former Trump advisor and possessor of possibly the world’s biggest noggin Sebastian Gorka is very upset with the videogame company Nintendo:

Someone needs to look much closer at this tweet allegedly promoting incest:

The first clue that the Nintendo tweet is a parody is that it comes from an account with the handle @NIntedoAmerica. The second clue is that if one bothered to look at the account’s bio, one would see the words “parody account.”

The third clue is, oh, everything else about it.

The tweet, in honor of Pride Month, is possibly an allusion the recent freak-out among conservatives over an episode of the PBS children’s cartoon Arthur that featured a same-sex wedding.

Gorka, who fancies himself an intellectual and a tough guy, needs to recalibrate his irony meter.

UPDATE (4:48 P.M.) — Gorka has deleted his tweet with no acknowledgement. We have preserved a screenshot:
