If a conservative ever, ever, ever calls you a snowflake, show them this. (No, seriously, print it out, stick it in your wallet, give it to them, and just walk the f*#k away.)
An annual Republican fundraising dinner in Fresno, California, featuring Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) has been canceled following protesters’ plans to crash the event wearing cow costumes and ringing cowbells.
The protest plot was launched after Nunes sued Twitter and the parody Twitter account @DevinCow for $250 million for online harassment. Nunes’ planned blow against ridicule backfired as the number of “Devin Nunes’ Cow” followers zoomed to 623,000, far surpassing the number of Nunes’ own Twitter followers.
Andy Lassner, the executive producer of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” set off the protest plans Wednesday with a tongue-in-cheek “I’m not saying” that people should show up to the Fresno Lincoln Reagan Dinner — planned for April 11 — to “moo.” Lassner’s followers quickly suggested showing up in cow costumes, with cowbells and mooing noise-makers.
I’m not saying it would be hilarious if folks in Fresno showed up to this event just to moo.

Fresno Republicans didn’t elaborate on what prompted the cancelation, merely stating that it was done for “security reasons.”
It’s really starting to look like Devin Nunes has fatally clowned himself.
Oh, also …
IT’S NOT FUNNY OK? https://t.co/NG1SCURIRB
