A man known as @fart by his twitter handle appears to have pulled off one of the greatest trolls I have ever seen.

I am not a fan of trolling. I can't stand it when it occurs here at ATS, but this is different and will hopefully bring some humor to your day.

Trolling of HLN segment: Edward Snowden to Scissorhands




In this video, HLN anchor Yasmin Vossoughian dials up Jon Hendren, known by his Twitter handle @fart, for a segment on America’s best top fugitive Edward Snowden’s recent appearance on Twitter. Hendren is introduced as a Snowden supporter.

He plays it straight at first, when Vossoughian asks him why Snowden’s account is allowed while ISIS accounts have been shut down. “He’s been isolated for so long,” says Hendren. “We should listen to what he says.”

Then, after showing a John Oliver clip, Vossoughian goes on. “There is classified information out there that John Oliver was referring to,” she says, “that was released, that could have feasibly harmed people.”

“Well, you know, to say that he couldn’t harm somebody with what he did—he could, absolutely, he could,” says Hendren. “But to cast him out, to make him invalid in society simply because he has scissors for hands—I mean, that’s strange. People didn’t get scared until he started sculpting shrubs into dinosaur shapes and whatnot.”

How did that woman not catch what he was saying? Or is it that she did and ignored it?

Reporter took all the fun out of it, damn robots.

Would have been funnier if they had a reporter that was a little less wooden and able to think on their feet. That was a prime opportunity for a duet.

She's a reporter, they just read a script. No matter what the "response" to the question is they just read the next line of their script.

That and I'm sure she just ignored it.

I doubt she even realized what he was saying at first lol, plus she just reads the script like you said.
