Bart Simpson Calls Out Members of Congress

There are always scummy people around who will try to capitalize on a crisis like this coronavirus. $159 for a package of those flimsy dust masks that normally sell for $5? Really, Big Box Store?

But it’s even more disgusting when elected officials personally profit from a crisis. That’s what Bart Simpson is alluding to in this chalkboard meme.

Back in late January, the Senate held a behind-closed doors, secret, not-open-to-the-public hearing in which they were warned that the Chinese virus was going to spread – badly – in the United States, endangering the economy. None of them rushed out of that hearing to warn the American people about what was coming.

Instead, five US Senators dumped millions and millions of dollars in stocks that very same day. It’s the most obvious and disgustingly blatant example of insider trading we’ve ever seen.

Here are their names, by the way: Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Richard Burr (R-NC), Kelly Loefner (R-GA), Ron Johnson (R-WI), and Jim Inhofe (R-OK).

Every single one of them needs to be investigated for insider trading and personally profiting from their secret knowledge of how the virus was going to hammer our economy.
