Someone On A Live Newsmax Segment Let Rip What Sounded Like A Massive Fart, And The Secondhand Embarrassment Is Nearly Unbearable

Oh, sweet JESUS.

I’m pretty desensitized to most anything these days, after nearly a decade under my belt covering the constant f*ckery that is Republicans. But every once in a while, I will come across something that still manages to “get” me.

This one got me, y’all.

Typically speaking, I’ll be the first to admit that I take a little bit of (probably sick) joy in seeing some Republican halfwit or another get publicly humiliated or embarrass themselves in some way. But sometimes, even when it’s a Right-wing nut that’s the butt of the joke, the secondhand embarrassment ends up being almost unbearable.

And today’s little incident was one of the worst I’ve ever witnessed.

In a clip that is (unfortunately for them) spreading like wildfire across social media, it seems that **someone** let rip what certainly sounded like a massive fart during a live on-air segment on the ultra Right-wing Newsmax network.

I promise you, from the bottom of my heart, I am not kidding.

See for yourself:

As Baragona pointed out in his caption of the video, we can’t exactly verify what the sound was with 100 percent certainty. But we all damn sure know exactly what he sounded like.

The social media responses went about exactly as you’d expect, with many Twitter users pinning the unfortunate rip on the lady in the lower right-hand corner, whose camera happened to shake at the most unfortunate time:

Was it funny? Absolutely HILARIOUS. Was it so embarrassing and cringy that I want to bury my head in the sand for them? Also yes.
