Meme: There’s A Useful Idiot Born Every Minute


Ya ever get tired of the idiotic homegrown trolls who spend their — presumably — free time posting trolly crap on social media? Ya ever wish you had a one-size fits all retort that you could just slap ’em upside the head with before you blocked them? Well, I certainly have.

Of all the quick sharp answers that I’ve tried — often I don’t try anything, I just block ’em to tell ya the truth — this is the most satisfying and effective, especially with the Trumpiest of trolls.

Feel free to download and use this meme any and every chance you get. It is guaranteed to make you the envy of everyone your social media reaches.

I love the punny combination of the Russian useful idiot trope and the there’s a fool/sucker/idiot born every minute quote often attributed to PT Barnum, and I’m sure he doesn’t object.

I’d love to hear how you put it to use in the comments. Blogging is a lonely business, so please give us a sign of life with a like, rating, or comment. Who knows, the blog you save might be this one!
