When someone like Edward Snowden joins Twitter, it’s going to be big news. But while HLN was covering the story, it reached out to Jon Hendren, known by his Twitter handle @fart, for his opinion on the matter and why he supports Snowden.
At first, Hendren appears to be straightforward with his answers, discussing Snowden’s isolation and how we should listen to what he has to say. But after HLN played a John Oliver clip featuring Snowden, things took a surprising (and hilarious) turn in Hendren’s responses.
Well, you know, to say that he couldn’t harm somebody with what he did—he could, absolutely, he could. But to cast him out, to make him invalid in society simply because he has scissors for hands—I mean, that’s strange. People didn’t get scared until he started sculpting shrubs into dinosaur shapes and whatnot.
Hendren’s answer alone is hilarious, but when the reporter for HLN continues, as if it makes perfect sense - the segment becomes transcendent.
If they take it down, you can watch it on Jezebel.
