San Antonio Trump Lackey Brad Parscale Posts Selfie With MAGA Mask — and Twitter Lets Loose

After celebrating Star Wars Day by comparing the Trump campaign to spacefaring genocidal weapon the Death Star, Brad Parscale is drawing comparisons to another movie villain — Hannibal Lecter.

On Thursday, Cheeto Voldemort's campaign manager tweeted a selfie wearing a face mask printed with the Trump/Pence 2020 slogan "Keep America Great."

"Walking into the @WhiteHouse today pre-covid results. #maga @realDonaldTrump face mask. More coming soon!" the tweet reads.

Twitter users immediately picked up on the former San Antonio web designer's uncanny resemblance to infamous Silence of the Lambs antagonist Hannibal Lecter.

However, between the two villains, only one has ever been purported to be a genius.

Case in point: people are pointing out that the mask design looks to be ineffectual in more ways than one — both due to its shape and that it appears to be made of neoprene.

Former Obama adviser and co-host of Pod Save America Dan Pfeiffer also noted that Parscale's tweet is likely in violation of the law: "Just the President's campaign manager doing a little illegal campaign fundraising on federal government property."

Not that the Trump administration has ever given a shit about that kind of thing.

But it was user @brendafeaster5 who came in with the real question: "They can make these masks but not N95?"
