Todd Starnes is really upset that he was asked to wear a mask and use hand sanitizer when he went to a store to buy a toaster — during a global pandemic that has killed almost 80,000 people.

We all know that the most oppressed group in all of history is (checks notes) White Christian Republican Men. They were sold into slavery, forbidden from drinking at certain water fountains or from riding in the front of the bus. They didn't get the right to vote until the last century. They have never won the Presidency. Hell, they don't even get to control their own bodies.

Wait. Wrong groups.

White men control pretty much EVERYTHING.

So, imagine Todd Starnes frustration when he was told by the mean store person that he had to not only wear a mask — but he had to use hand sanitizer — DURING A GLOBAL PANDEMIC. Yes, to put others' safety before your own convenience is hard for the White Christian Republican Man. After all, he has been raised to expect everyone else to bend to his will, not the other way around.

Here is Todd's super whiny tweet:

Twitter had thoughts:

This one made me LOSE IT.

Mic drop:

Yes, Todd. YOUR struggle is the real one. You are the hero. Maybe the next Banksy portrait will be of YOU!
