Michael Flynn announced his resignation as President Donald Julius Trump’s National Security Advisor just in time to spend Valentine’s Day with his one true love of sharing conspiracy theories.
Michael Flynn, who shared various articles peddling baseless conspiracy theories before becoming the shortest-serving National Security Advisor, said he was looking forward to being reunited with “recklessly sharing conspiracy theories and general misinformation on social media.”
Recklessly sharing conspiracy theories and general misinformation on social media has become a bit of a pastime for U.S. citizens, but for the baby boomer generation, and Flynn specifically, it has taken on a flare of romance.
More and more people are sharing fake information as a substitute for the missing thrill of intimate contact, according to Nathaniel Smartypants an esteemed sociologist from Stanford’s Honorable Institute for Totally Fabricated, Unreliable and Cooky Knowledge.
“It is well established through MRI research that the thrill of thoughtlessly passing around information on the internet activates the same region of the brain as passionate love making,” said Smartypants. “Basically, our hypothesis is their junk is dilapidated.”
At press time, Flynn was reading InfoWars.
