Twitter Comedian Trolls Cable News By Confusing Edward Snowden & Edward Scissorhands

For reasons that are best left unknown, producers of The Daily Share, a “news” program on HLN (formerly CNN Headline News), asked Twitter comedian/troll/wiseacre Jon Hendren, better known as @fart, to come on live television and discuss Edward Snowden. There are about four million ways this could have gone wrong — this was, after all, the same guy who got “the Smash Mouth guy” to eat a bunch of eggs — and boy, did it go wrong. Just not in a way that anyone could have expected. Consider it Way #4,000,001. The interview starts out normal enough. Hendren is identified as a “Snowden Supporter,” a clip from Last Week Tonight plays, host Yasmin Vossoughian asks why Snowden’s any different from ISIS, etc. Then Hendren says, “I think to cast him out, to make him invalid in society, simply because he has scissors for hands, I mean that’s strange. I mean people didn’t get scared until he started sculpting shrubs into dinosaur shapes and what not.” Vossoughian barely reacts, probably because she’s thinking, “How have I never noticed Edward Scissorhands and Edward Snowden have so much in common?
