“Given the context of the episode in question, this is a pretty masterful self-own on the part of Mr. Pompeo,” one person fired back at the secretary of state. Added another: “Dude. You just played yourself. Self owns are the best.”
Ah yes, the episode where Lisa Simpson helped send a corrupt government official to prison. I hope you enjoyed it too!

This is from an ep when Lisa wins a trip to DC for her essay about what makes America great, but she sees a congressman take a bribe from a logging lobbyist to tear down the forest. She loses her faith in America, finds it again, & gets the corrupt congressman thrown in jail… https://t.co/bJF7qwkfTE

You do know why Lisa tore up this speech, right? Right?

It’s funny because she rips up her own essay because she has lost faith in democracy due to corrupt politicans. It is a good episode. You should watch it. https://t.co/YGjdQmXz7W

The damage that is being done to this country is horrific, and you will go down as playing a part in that.
I don’t think we will ever heal from all of this.

Did you know you’re using the image from the episode where Lisa writes a speech about how great America is before seeing how corporatized and evil it is? Catching a glimpse of how it is behind the curtain? So she rips up her speech because she loses all faith in the country?

Oh, Mr. Secretary, if only you cared as much about protecting our ambassadors from political smear attacks as you do in demonstrating the strength of your gif game. https://t.co/TOTo0DSWQT
