Laura Ingraham Slams The Scourge of Man Buns And Skinny Jeans At RNC

We suspect Republicans and Democrats alike can agree on these common enemies.

Nothing unites political enemies like a common foe. At the 2016 RNC Wednesday night, FOX News host Laura Ingraham took aim at two style snafus reviled by self-respecting men of all parties: the man bun and skinny jeans on guys.

“We have stagnating wages, we have skyrocketing healthcare costs, doubling of the debt, the threat of ISIS, the rise of China, and the Democrats’ answer to all of that is to nominate the woman who helped orchestrate America’s decline,” Ingraham said at the 11:55 mark. “That has to be some cruel joke, like skinny jeans on men or man buns.”

Ingraham’s man bun dig was wrapped up in a larger anti-Democrat diatribe, but we can all agree something must be done about tragically man-bunned hipsters making their way to locavorian vegan apothecaries in $500 acid-washed skinny jeans.

It’s simply un-American.

Just look how widespread the problem is: even top Hollywood talen, headlineed by Leonardo Dicaprio, have succumbed to the bun’s greasy charms.

Don’t think Jake Gyllenhaal is safe just because he’s friends with Jay Z.

No matter that man buns are most commonly seen in huge swaths of Brooklyn and Silver Lake, a recent poll found that up to 74 percent of American women find them repellant.

Thanks Laura for reminding us of the real issues this election cycle. Too bad you besmirched your entire speech by finishing on this:
