Jim Hoft, Dumbest Man on the Internet, Also Most Hypocritical

Say “cheese”

Remember when Jim Hoft, fabled Dumbest Man on the Internet, freaked out about a photograph of President Obama taking a “selfie” at Nelson Mandela’s memorial event, labeling Obama the “Narcissist-in-Chief?” And remember how this Obama-bashing meme instantly spread throughout the right wing blogs and made it all the way to Fox News?

AFP Photographer “Sad” to Make Obama Look Bad in “Selfie” Shot at Mandela Funeral | the Gateway Pundit

Well, first of all, this was not a “funeral;” it was a memorial service that included lots of performers and tributes from dignitaries. And it was not a solemn event in a church; it was more like a party, a joyous celebration of Mandela’s life. And for that matter, Jim Hoft was incredibly vicious and mean-spirited toward Nelson Mandela when he died, posting several rants like this one and this one.

But the point of this post: today the DMOTI tweeted this, demonstrating once again that boorish self-absorbed right wing hypocrisy for which he’s infamous — a lovely selfie that he took with a friend at a real funeral, in a church, wearing a polo shirt and a big un-self-conscious grin.

Say “cheese,” Jim.

(I’m posting a screenshot linked to his tweet instead of embedding it, because Hoft has a long-standing habit of trying to delete stuff like this when it gets noticed.)
