Meet Jeff Fortenberry *stifled chuckle*

Jeff Fortenberry is a member of the House of Representatives from the state of Nebraska. And he’s got a funny name. You know how you want to say his last name. Go ahead, say it. I know you just said it. It is funny, isn’t it? But you know what’s not funny? Violence and vandalism. See Jeff’s tweet below.

Except, when it looks like this …


Now that is definitely funny. But what if he is one of those Democratic snowflake politicians that I seem to be so in love with? Would it be funny to me then? Let’s play a game. See if you can guess what party Jeff is aligned with based on these clues.

  • Jeff is from Nebraska.
  • Jeff received a 100% pro-life score from the National Right to Life Committee.
  • Jeff received a 6% score from the Clean Water Action group.
  • Jeff received a 93% score from the NRA.

Can you guess his party? I know, we had you at Nebraska, a dead giveaway that Jeff is a Republican. The rest of the accolades and brickbats are just normal window dressing for all Republicans.

2015? Sorry, but Jeff’s been too busy trying to steal people’s affordable healthcare these past few years to report on 2016 & 2017.

So Jeff definitely does not want to be called Fartenberry. I get it. Just take a look at how the Urban Dictionary describes Fartenberry …

Is there a Trump joke in there? Maybe show Trump as a synonym?

But is going by the name Fortenberry any better? To the Urban Dictionary again …

Sour, spite-filled & derisive? Do we have yet another Trump reference here? Anyway you want to say it, Fortenberry or Fartenberry, they both sound Republican to me. But one is definitely funnier than the other.
